Beautiful wedding decor and views that will take your breath away. This week’s White Lily bride had us gasping with her stunning wedding images.
Our bride of the week, Monique, met her other half when she attended the Roma Races, also known as ‘love’ races, in 2015. As soon as they laid eyes on one another, Monique and Brad couldn’t help but feel the spark. What started off as a long-distance relationship, soon turned into the most magical bond. After powering through their first year of spending far too much time apart, the Queensland couple finally decided to move in together.
After all these years together, Monique and Brad finally became husband and wife. Their wedding took place on their magical estate in Kingaroy. With an amazing backdrop and gorgeous views, the Queensland couple’s day was highlighted by soft and romantic tones. The pastel pink flowers and luscious greens created a warm, intimate, and unforgettable ambiance. The day was completed by the presence of Monique and Brad’s closest friends and family. “…Our day was magic and I could never have imagined it to be as perfect as it was. “
As Monique planned her wedding, she prioritised three things: The wedding dress, the flower arrangements, and a photographer that would be able to capture all of her precious wedding day moments. With her sister in law being the owner of Shutter + Lace, she got a talented photographer and supporting bridesmaids in one. She also got lucky with her hairstylist, who happened to be one of her bridesmaids as well. A real power bridal party!
When she began her bridal journey, Monique was looking for a wedding dress that stood out from the crowd. She tried on ORA by Enzoani and was fascinated by all the details. She also loved the stunning train, Enzoani is renowned for: “…the reaction from my bridesmaids when I walked out in ‘Ora’ was unforgettable and that was how I knew it was ‘the dress’.”
“The experience at White Lily was like no other. Rachel was so kind, she made me feel so comfortable and didn’t mind if we tried on every gown to find my dream dress. The beautiful boutique made the experience so special and I loved that there were so many different designers and styles to chose from.” Monique truly looked incredible and we can’t even begin to explain how happy we are to have made her bridal dreams come true.
As we all know, organising a wedding isn’t always a walk in the park. One of the questions we always ask our White Lily brides is how they managed to plan their wedding during Covid-19. Since a large chunk of Monique and Brad’s guests were in New South Wales, the Queensland couple had to reduce their guest list significantly. To get through these difficult times and to deal with the ever-changing restrictions, Monique advises to establish plans for different scenarios surrounding Covid: “…at least then if a situation arises it won’t be as stressful.”
Having dealt with some of the most stressful times, our White Lily bride of the week also advises to enjoy the experience and to make your wedding your own: “…everyone has their own style so as long as you love it that is all that matters.”
Saying ‘I do’ was only the start to all of the exciting things ahead, in Monique and Brad’s future. The newly-weds can’t wait to find a place to call home and spend the rest of their lives together.

A sparkling dress, a sparkling sky – the magic was written in the stars for Amelia & Foti! The pair recently shared their nuptials with friends and family in a stunning destination wedding in Greece!
Flash back to ten years ago and the two were still in school. Foti was Amelia’s brother’s best friend, and it wasn’t long before Foti was in love! “He asked me to be his wife 10 years later – when the time was right! Super romantic!” Said Amelia.
The romantic moments continued into their big day as she walked down the aisle towards her soon-to-be husband. This was actually Amelia’s favourite part of the day! “It was as I walked down the aisle (tears rolling down my face!) – the certainty and stability in his eyes. My Future. My Husband. Such a vulnerable and beautiful moment I’ll cherish forever.” She said. Amelia also loved her first dance moment. “It was beyond!! Surprise fireworks lit up the sky!” She said of the epic moment that the night was filled with a dazzling display of light as the two gazed upwards from their open-air dancefloor.

Kate and Max’s Toowoomba wedding was all about what was most important to the couple – friends, family, good food and good wine!
The duo held their ceremony in the lush grounds of Gabbinbar Homestead with a luxe banquet-style reception held in the venue’s glamorous Conservatory.
Having first met at high school, Kate & Max were not your typical high school sweethearts. It wasn’t until years down the track that the pair reconnected over Facebook. (The magic of social media, are we right!?).
Fast forward to the present, and the two are saying ‘I do’ in a dreamy outdoor Toowoomba wedding! Kate pinpointed walking down the aisle as her absolute highlight of the day. “I couldn’t get to him quick enough!” She said.

Tamsyn & Mitch’s love story began with a very twenty-first century spin. After they both moved back to the Sunshine Coast, the pair met online and quickly hit it off! Mitch took Tamsyn on a romantic date to the Ballet, and they’ve been inseparable ever since! It was from then on she knew he was someone special.
Once they were engaged, the two began planning their stunning Yandina wedding! Their wedding day was filled with love, dancing and special moments with family and friends. This was, in fact, one of Tamsyn’s favourite parts from the day! She detailed her dance floor moment for us, saying:
“I loved hitting the dance floor with my friends and family. My family love Queen, and I mean totally obsessed with Queen. We had an all-in sing a long to Bohemian Rhapsody at the end of the night and it honestly was one of the best days of my life!”

A blissfully rainy wedding day… It sounds like every couple’s worst nightmare, but Annica and Matt’s big day was nothing but smiles.
Beginning with an intimate ceremony in the Hillstone St Lucia Courtyard Garden, the pair exchanged vows. Both of them shedding a tear as the other began their outpourings of love and commitment (cute!). The party then continued on with friends and family in the Rosewood reception space.
Annica fell head-over-heels for the Tyla gown from Noosa based couturier, Erin Clare Bridal. Our beautiful bride shining bright in head-to-toe ivory sequins cut in the most divine mermaid silhouette. Annica’s dreamy dress was finished off with delicate shoestring straps and a stunning low back.
Annica accessorised her look with a single tier raw-edged veil, silver earrings, nude heels and a fresh floral headpiece to match the bridal party’s bouquets.
We simple couldn’t get enough of this super cute wedding party! Scroll through the gallery below for more!
