    Romantic luxe was on Sophie’s mind when planning her special day and we are in love! Hundreds of blush and white roses, a mixture of candles and fairy lights, paired with golden decor and luxe cocktails – we couldn’t take our eyes off this week’s White Lily bride Sophie and husband Jake’s images. With help from the couple’s vendors, their vision was brought to life: “My wedding planner, florist & caterer were most important. All of these vendors did the most amazing job and I couldn’t have been happier!

    After meeting through mutual friends in Queensland’s Bundaberg, Jake proposed to Sophie at their family’s beach house in Agnes Waters. Originally, Jake had planned to surprise her with a helicopter ride to heart reef; however, Mr Covid forced Jake to whip out plan B and ask Sophie to be her wife in a slightly different setting. Despite Covid’s impact on Jake’s proposal plans, the Queensland couple’s wedding wasn’t affected by the pandemic: “We were so thankful that we didn’t have to change our date. The week leading up to our wedding all restrictions were dropped. We were so lucky!” Celebrated on private property, Jake and Sophie’s special day was truly magical. 

    Sophie’s Favourite Memories

    With the planning and day going by so fast, Sophie particularly remembers “Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing my husband at the other end – This was such a special moment!” Sophie also appeals to other brides, who are currently planning their wedding, and advises to take it all in: “Try and enjoy all of the planning & preparation even though it may be stressful! Time flies!”

    It’s All About The Sparkle

    The star-studded designer gown Constellation by Atelier Pronovias is a true showstopper and tied in perfectly with Sophie’s romantic and luxe wedding theme. The snowflake tulle on our Atelier gown is truly unique and exactly what Sophie was looking for: “The sparkle! It was like nothing I had ever seen before. It was so gorgeous and I had so many compliments!” We seriously can’t take our eyes off these photos!

    Future As Mr. & Mrs. 

    Now that the couple has entered their next chapter as husband and wife, Sophie and Jake are excited to see what life has in store for them. The Queensland couple is also over the moon to finally be able to call each other husband and wife.

    Complete the sentence: Being married means getting to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.

  • Beth and Joey’s Rustic Autumn Wedding in New Zealand

    5th July, 2021 | by
    New Zealand Country Wedding Enzoani Real Bride (41) read more

    Warm tones of orange paired with wooden furniture and luscious greens were the perfect combination to create this week’s White Lily bride Beth’s dream wedding. Surrounded by New Zealand’s beautiful nature, Beth and Joey’s special day was as raw and beautiful as their love for each other.

    The Proposal

    From a young age, Beth and Joey knew they were destined to be together. Their love story goes all the way back to when they were only 15 and was finally sealed on a weekend getaway to the Sunshine Coast: “… we went and watched the sunrise by point Cartwright lighthouse, he got down on one knee and I was a blubbering mess. One of the best moments of our lives, just the two of us, on the beach, at one of our favourite spots which has now become one of the most special places in the world to us. “ A few years later, the couple finally got to say their vows, which is, by the way, a memory the couple will “treasure forever.

    Rustic Autumn Vibes in Canterbury

    Getting into the cooler months of New Zealand’s Canterbury, Beth and Joey wanted to embrace the Autumn theme and decided to go for a venue that reflected their personal style. Surrounded by vines with orange rust colours at Cossars Wineshed, the couple knew they didn’t need to add a lot to make their dream wedding stand out: “We are pretty relaxed people so wanted the style to reflect that- nothing too over the top, our wedding venue was beautiful already…

    The Dream Team

    With help from Safia from Cossars, Beth and Joey’s day went by seamlessly. Captured by Sarah Clements and Velvet Photo Cinema, the Queensland couple was able to enjoy their special day at their fullest: “Our photographer and videographers have outdone themselves on the memories they have created for us. They were also so fun and just hyped us up the whole day!  We tossed up about getting a videographer for a long time and my goodness we are so glad we did! The first night we got the highlights video back we watched it at least 20 times and cried and laughed every since time. Worth its weight in gold!” 

    Enzoani’s Lace Dream

    Beth fell heads over heels in love with our MARIANNA gown by LA-based designer Enzoani: “I absolutely adored my gown on the day. It’s the perfect combination of classic and feminine. super fun to wear and the train is to die for. The intricacy of the beading and lace detail is like nothing I saw in other dresses. Even when I got the alterations done they commented on the craftsmanship that would have had to go into making this dress. When I tried this dress on it was everything I ever imagined my wedding dress to be and I felt incredible in it on my wedding day.

    Beth’s White Lily Experience

    From the get-go I felt so incredibly comfortable and supported by the ladies at WLC, my dress fitting was slightly unusual due to COVID restrictions so it was tricky not having my nearest and dearest there with me but after my first appointment and lots of photos to those closest to me it was a clear consensus as to what dress was ‘the one’. I never felt rushed at any point in the day or to make a decision. My dress had to be shipped to New Zealand as I had moved back there to live and all the ladies made that whole process so seamless and organised it all for me which took a lot of stress off! I would 100% recommend WLC the range of dresses, expertise, and experience was like no other!

    Advice to Future Brides

    Getting married is all about celebrating love and embracing your emotions: “…feel every emotion and don’t hold your emotions back, cry if you want to cry and laugh at any opportunity, we spent the entire day laughing and smiling with the odd tear here and there and it was so perfectly ‘us’.” We love this piece of advice and couldn’t agree more!

    Married Life

    Beth’s favourite part about being married is knowing that her husband Joey will always have her back: “You are part of a team now and how cool is that that you get to spend the rest of your life with your teammate!” 

    Being married means committing to one person in every aspect of life from making them smile, giving them all the love, and doing the dishes. It’s about the big things and the small things, the deep discussions and the one person you know will always have you back and the small things every day that you do for your husband/wife can seem inconsequential but can make married life incredible.

  • Tara & Zach’s Simplistic and Timeless Kooroomba Wedding

    19th July, 2021 | by
    Minimal Lavender Farm Brisbane Wedding (29) read more

    Every time we receive the images from our brides, who chose to celebrate their love at Kooroomba Lavender Farm we get blown away! There is something so magical about that place, it’s hard to not obsess over their weddings. This week’s White Lily bride Tara finally got to say yes to the love of her life, Zach, during their minimalistic, timeless, and beautiful Queensland ceremony. Underneath that wooden chapel, and with views of the mountains, the Brisbane couple couldn’t have pictured a more perfect day.  

    Have you asked yet?

    After meeting back in 2017, through a blind date organised by mutual friends, Zach finally got down on one knee to pop the question. Sticking to the gentleman’s rule book, he made sure to consult Tara’s dad, who could hardly keep the news to himself. Unfortunately, shortly after, Zach had to go away for work: “…In the meantime, the 4 weeks were killing my dad not being able to tell anyone and he kept asking Zach have you asked yet? Have you asked yet? Dad works on his own and had no one to tell his excitement to other than the postman, bank lady, barista, and the list goes on…” After four long weeks, Zach finally returned: “…when Zach returned I asked him to drive me to the doctors and he said no sorry I can’t take you I have a surprise for you when you come back. I left quite annoyed and said to him before I closed the door: “This better be bloody good.” I came back and he was in a suit with flowers and made a walkway of candles playing romantic music. He said a little speech and got down on one Knee woooo hooooo.”  Woooo hooooo, indeed! 

    Simply Beautiful

    Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to create something special, which is why Tara chose minimalistic decor and timeless elements for her wedding day: “In the wedding planning process, I was really just choosing things that I liked, with each element I was picking it just evolved into a beautifully simplistic and timeless vibe. I loved how stripped back and effortless the styling was with a modern twist.” With subtle choices like blush roses and white orchids, Tara and Zach’s wedding day was beautiful from start to finish. The moment Tara cherishes most is when she and Zach finally got to walk out of the chapel, holding hands whilst being showered by confetti. 

    Standout Vendors

    Elise our Photographer is by far the best human you will ever meet. When I was on the hunt for our vendors, I had messaged so many different people but just didn’t feel quite right. I came across A’daw Photography after I saw a friend’s wedding photos. I sent her a message on Instagram and instantly, I got a vibe. She was so bubbly and happy to answer any questions it was love at first Message… My hairstylist Jody was also another big part of my day…she is amazing at what she does and I love how special she makes you feel on your day. Her energy towards making you feel amazing was a real big help to calm the nerves.” 

    The Dress

    The minimalist theme continued as Tara went looking for her dream bridal gown. When she arrived in our Brisbane boutique she saw our simplistic crepe gown SASHA by Erin Clare Bridal and fell in love: “…it made my vision come to life, Francesca got me to close my eyes, dressed me up with a veil and flowers, and it was game over. I just so happened to choose a gown by Erin Claire who lives in Noosa. Getting to meet with the designer to do my fittings was something really special and I valued that experience more than you will ever know. Almost makes me inspired to become a Fashion Designer myself haha.” 

    What did you love most about your White Lily experience?

    “Hunting for the perfect dress was made so easy with White Lily, I had been to a few different stores before to try on dresses and just didn’t have a great experience. I gave it a few months and came across White Lily. The staff were great the experience was so effortless. Francesca was very accommodating and easy-going… from booking in the appointment to rescheduling from Covid to picking up my dress it was a great seamless experience.”

    The Power of Positive Thought

    Although Tara and Zach’s plans weren’t directly affected by the Covid restrictions, the couple wasn’t left without concern on whether their day would go ahead as planned. With ever-changing restrictions, Tara made sure to hold on to positive thoughts: “…the worrying that the event would even happen played hugely on our minds but made us so much more grateful for the day and the support system we have around us. My advice to brides would be the power of positive thought will help you see the good in not so good situations.” 

    Tara’s favourite thing about being married

    Since planning a wedding can be stressful, to say the least, Tara is now looking forward to not having to worry about lockdowns or other inconveniences that could get in the way of marrying the love of her life. Tara and Zach are also excited to see what the world has in stall for them.

    Complete the sentence: Being married means “having the TV on 24/7 playing the cricket while Zach naps.” True Love!

  • Dee-Jay & Luke’s Contemporary Country Wedding

    28th June, 2021 | by
    Cowbell Creek Pronovias Real Bride Rustic Country Wedding read more

      Nothing is sweeter than a good old high school love story, which is why we loved reading about how this week’s White lily bride met her now-husband Luke. After glancing over to one another during their daily year twelve form class, Dee-Jay couldn’t help but feel the sparks. Yet, it wasn’t until the couple graduated, that Luke finally took a leap of faith and asked Dee-Jay out on a date. Eight years have gone by since and here we are!

      A Proposal Under the Lucky Tree

      “We were holidaying in Thailand with some friends. It was our four-year anniversary and instead of having a lovely romantic dinner with just us two, Luke organised dinner with our friends. They let me pick the place to eat, so I ultimately picked one along the beach to have a beautiful view and after dinner, we can walk along the beach. There was one moment when fireworks went off by strangers and I thought that Luke would purpose but once they finished & nothing happened I pushed the thought away and strolled on. Luke said, “let’s get a photo under the lucky tree?” Getting our friends to take photos, they were all in on this. there was nothing special about this tree at all yet once we got under it, Luke kicked a glass bottle. Once he picked it up, I saw there was a little paper scroll inside… As soon as I was reading ‘will you marry me?’ Luke was on one knee in the sand asking me to marry him! I said Yes under some tears when he opened the box the wrong way and the ring fell out. We were glad to find it and have a laugh… four years on and we are FINALLY MARRIED.“

      Contemporary Simplistic Country

      What would a country wedding be without a few too many drinks, a good old boogie, and your favourite crowd? “We aimed for an ultimate party but yet it was our wedding. Relaxed, casual, stress-free, and a whole lot of fun – it was all of that and more. We ate pizza, we drank too much, and danced too hard!“ Dee-Jay and Luke’s wedding day wasn’t only exactly what they imagined, but it was also as stress-free as possible: “Why stress about all the little details of table settings and styling when that doesn’t really matter. Everyone is there to celebrate two people coming together…. whatever happens is meant to be. The less stress you have the more fun you have on your day!” Walking down the aisle with her daughter, Dee-Jay couldn’t have been happier with how her special day turned out.

      How Covid Changed Dee-Jay’s Wedding for the Better

      Who could have known that a global pandemic would change a wedding for the better? Despite the frustration and inconveniences of the unknown, Dee-Jay was able to create a wedding that was even more magical, than previously planned: “Covid has been pleasing for us as we went from a winter wedding to a summer/autumn wedding. It gave me more time to get into the dress, as I ended up falling pregnant three months after I bought my dress. Instead of a grazing table, we had grazing boxes for each couple which was an absolute hit with our guests…” On top of that, Dee-Jay and Luke were able to source vendors, that they didn’t even know about, pre-covid. With businesses upping their Instagram game during the pandemic, Dee-Jay found an array of great vendors online. 

      Dee-Jay’s Dream Wedding Dress

      Although Dee-Jay bought her dream Pronovias dress two years prior to her wedding, our White Lily bride loved it just as much as she did when she first tried it on: “After two years I still loved my dress. It was completely different from what I thought I was going to wear… my dress made me feel soooo beautiful on the day. I loved the bottom of my dress how the tulle made it feel so dreamy and then went into the most beautiful big train…” 

      Cowbell Creek Pronovias Real Bride Rustic Country Wedding

      What made your White Lily Couture experience special for you?

      All the staff members are truly amazing and they cater from all different styles to small/big sizes which I love… I had Lisa for my consult and she was absolutely amazing – cannot fault her. You could tell she really cared about you and how you felt in the dress you had on…You could tell she was listening.  I was lucky to buy my dress on the first visit and it was only by chance of seeing it on another bride. Once I tried the same dress on I absolutely fell in love, even Lisa told me this is the dress/style she would have dressed me in if I asked at the beginning of the appointment.

      Life as Mr. and Mrs.

      After over eight years of dating, and four years of planning, Dee-Jay and Luke finally became husband and wife. It is no surprise that the couple was over the moon to finally share the same last name and move onto the next chapter of their lives: “… I don’t know what it is but I love that I get to be a Mrs ‘Ash’ as well as calling my partner husband. . Nothing has really changed as getting married was sealing what we have created over the last 8 years… Planning a wedding has taught me to let go a lot which has helped with married life… love, have fun, and create new memories.

      Being married means coming together as one.

    • Jasmine & Steve’s Dreamy Hinterland Wedding

      14th June, 2021 | by
      White_Lily_Couture_Wedding_Mt_Warning read more

      It was love at first sight for this week’s White Lily bride Jasmine and her partner Steve. These two high school sweethearts met eight years ago, and to this day, still give each other butterflies: “the good kind”. They celebrated their love surrounded by family, friends, and the hinterlands of the lush Tweed Valley.

      Tell us the deets – Who proposed and how?  

      “After eight years of dating, Steve finally decided to propose…” And it was perfect! Jasmine’s partner planned a beautiful surprise weekend away at a hidden cabin in the Sunshine Coast hinterlands. Little did she know he had the best surprise of all still in-store. While we were away Steve hired the One Tree Hill property at the Sunshine Coast for a picnic and proposed at sunset. It was very romantic, and to this day still gives me butterflies (Good butterflies). It was simply perfect.

      Florals, Fairy-lights, & Fun

      Jasmine and Steve’s wedding was definitely one of those days we wish we could have been part of the ‘on-the-day’ vendor crew.  From the confetti to the champagne, and, of course, the love these two share – they brought to life what they always envisioned: a modern minimalist hinterland wedding, surrounded by family, friends, and great music.

      Standout Suppliers

      For Jasmine and Steve, every vendor was a dream, working seamlessly together to make their vision become reality. Both Figtree Pictures and Michael Vos Music were “simply amazing.” Alice exceeded their expectations and “captured everything we had envisioned.” Michael’s music was the perfect blend of romance and party: “his music not only gave me chills but kept everyone on the dance floor.” Jasmin and Steve really couldn’t recommend these vendors enough to future brides-to-be!

      What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?

      Upon askin Jasmin about her all-time favourite wedding day memories, she remembers “Walking down the aisle and seeing Steve’s face.” Even by just looking at their ceremony photos, you could really feel the love in the air. With a backdrop as beautiful as ever, their Mt Warning wedding was truly magical. 

      The Dress

      Jasmine’s White Lily gown was “simply perfect.” She wore Olive by Wedding Societe, a stunning off-the-shoulder gown with ethereal charm. With its bohemian flair and romantic lace, it’s a match made in heaven with the hinterland wedding she’d always envisioned. “I loved the detail of the lace, especially on the bodice. I felt so secure and comfortable in my dress.” We were in love! 

      Nothing makes us smile more than hearing about our brides’ experience finding their dream dress here at White Lily: “The girls were so lovely and made me feel so comfortable when trying on dresses, extremely helpful and informative.”

      Jasmine’s Advice

      Our White Lily couples wedding plans weren’t smooth sailing due to Covid postponing their June wedding to March the following year. Although tough to accept at first, Jasmine took it in stride. Her valuable advice for future brides: “Enjoy the ride, things constantly pop up that do not go to plan. Learning to not let them get you upset but to instead look at how the situation can be fixed or what is the next step to take. No matter what happens just remember at the end of the day you’re marrying your best friend and that’s all that really matters.”

      Complete the sentence: Being married means I get to call my best friend my husband….Calling Steve my husband still makes me giggle. I love knowing I got to marry my best friend and I get to ride this crazy life with him as my husband.

    • Emma & Josh’s Elegant Summergrove Wedding

      Summergrove_Estate_Enzoani_Bride_White_Lily_Couture (51) read more

      They say the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach, which is why it is no surprise that this week’s White Lily bride’s first date a Max Brenner was a winner. A few years later, Emma and Josh finally got to celebrate their love with 70 of the Brisbane couple’s nearest and dearest at their stunning Summergrove Estate dream wedding.

       

      Tell us the deets – Who proposed and how?  

      We love a good proposal story and this one sure is one to remember. Our White Lily couple had just climbed a mountain top in Wanaka, New Zealand when Josh pulled out a handmade anime storybook of the two of them: “We sat down on top of the mountain and he read the book to me. The last page said will you marry me!” Romantic and crafty, we love it! 

      Elegant with a Pop of Peach

      A venue so sleek and elegant doesn’t need much to impress, which is why Emma’s choice of decor was kept simple yet elegant. Peachy orchids with hints of blush seemed to be the perfect fit for Summergrove Estate’s stunningly beautiful and natural backdrop. Their chapel featured floral arbours framing the endless mountain views, accompanied by subtle and modern touches. The elegant theme was carried through to Emma and Josh’s reception, where white candles and thoughtful bits and bops created a warm and beautiful atmosphere. 

       

      Wedding Planning Advice from the Bride

      Try not to stress over the little things! People go to your wedding to see you get married and celebrate with you, they’re not looking at the small things.” 

      Memories to Cherish 

      Captured by the talented Kirk Willcox, Emma’s favourite memory was walking towards Josh,  just moments before saying their ‘I dos’. “The moment they opened the doors for my dad and I to walk in, was the most memorable part! I could see my future husband smiling at me and our loved ones reactions! We shed a few tears during the ceremony.” 

      Complete the sentence: Being married means having a best friend to make life long memories together. 

      The Dress

      Stunned by its quality fabrics and unique design, Emma found her dream bridal gown in MIMI by Enzoani: “My favourite feature was the lace train, so beautiful! I also loved how the buttons lined by back and continued to the end of the train. The lace and crepe material was so unique and elegant. Perfect!! I went to Skilled Stitches and she did a perfect job with taking the hem up and altering the size.

      After saying yes to the dress, Emma walked away from White Lily as happy as ever: “The ladies at White Lily were so helpful. They picked out a few dresses for me, and I chose one as my wedding dress. I didn’t think I liked the crepe style, however, as soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one.”  We were absolutely blown away when Emma’s images were sent our way; we couldn’t have been happier when seeing her shine on her special day. 

      The Future

      As newly married couple, Emma and Josh are now excited to start their own family. “It’s so nice to just enjoy married life with no more planning!

    • Beck & Sean – Elegant Byron Bay Wedding

        A gorgeous day in Byron Bay, smiles as far as the eye can see, and a beautiful couple that finally gets to call themselves husband and wife. White Lily bride Beck and husband Sean caught our eyes with their undeniable happiness in every single photo from their special day. 

        13 years ago, Brisbane couple Beck and Sean had no idea that a visit to the EKKA Showgrounds would take both of them on the ride of their lives. A few drinks of confidence, a cheeky number exchange, and here we are!

        The Proposal

        Sean organised a surprise weekend away at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat. It was truly magical, a hidden bungalow, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the stunning rainforest… 100 tealights, rose petals and dinner for two. He got on one knee and popped the question. It was like a dream!

        Wedding Styling

        Simple, yet elegant decor with crisp whites and deep tones of oak and burgundy. Captured by Mitch Lally Films and Steph and Maurice from Two Blushing Pilgrims, Beck and Sean’s day was raw and beautiful. The carefully selected flower placements with subtle hints of burgundy filled their reception and ceremony with warmth and romance. Luckily, after patiently riding the Covid wave, none of their plans were affected by Covid. In the end, all of Beck and Sean’s 70 guests were able to attend their Byron Bay wedding, which made the day truly special for everyone: “We knew we wanted to relive the day, watching our family and friends come together to celebrate our love story. It is the little details or precious moments that we might not have seen on the day (as it happens so quickly), that could be caught on film & watched over again.”

        Let’s Talk Dress

        Her smile says it all! GROVE by Stella York was, without a doubt, the dress for Beck: “I loved the colouring of the sheer on the bodice, the buttons down the spine, with the seamless detail of lace and tulle.” The romantic look of the lace details tied in perfectly with the elegant theme of the day and made her look effortlessly beautiful when striking down the aisle. 

        Beck’s Favourite Memories

        Speaking about striking down the aisle: Upon asking Beck about her favourite moments from the day, her emotions from their ceremony came flushing back: “There was so much love..” How can you not be in tears when hearing your husband’s vows and listening to an acoustic performance of “I will always love you”?

        Mr. & Mrs.

        After all these years, Beck and Sean finally move onto the next chapter of their lives. Beck’s favourite part about being married is to finally call each other husband and wife: “…we still giggle and cannot believe after 13 years, we finally did it!” It has, indeed, been a long time coming! 

        Complete the sentence: Being married means committing to your best friend for life and loving all their rawness.

      • Kate & Simon – New Zealand Mountain Dreams

        Being immersed in one of the world’s most gorgeous natural habitats, this week’s White Lily bride Kate and husband Simon took our breath away with their stunning wedding images by Kiwicaptures. Their helicopter ride to the top of Peninsula Peak allowed the couple to catch the most beautiful sunset; not only were they surrounded by magical scenery and unbelievable views of New Zealand’s Wanaka, but it was also a beautiful epilogue to their mountain top engagement in 2017.

        Tell us how the question got popped!

        “Simon proposed in June 2017 on our first day skiing at Coronet Peak. He made me walk to the top of Coronet Peak- I wasn’t really appreciating this request at the time as I had to walk in my ski boots (which were bloody heavy). When we got to the top, I thought wow this is so unreal I can’t wait to show my siblings the photo. Having turned away from Simon to take in the glorious view, I then turned around to see him on the ground. I initially thought he had dropped something and it wasn’t until he pulled out the shiny ring box I clicked. I of course said yes and after a good twenty minutes coming to terms with what had happened, we then we skied down the mountain and met up with my brother and sister who were over skiing from Aussie also at the time.”
