REAL WEDDING: Louise & Kyle, Private Property, Banana QLD

We have to admit, when Louise first called us and said she was getting married to Kyle at their property in Banana - it did require a google search to determine where in the world Banana actually was?! It was there that all the fun started with the couple, sharing plenty of fun loving moments throughout their planning. 

Lou as we came to call her had a vintage boho concept in mind with an ideal to tie elements of both of these styles into the relaxed, outback QLD location. The ceremony would take place overlooking the ranges, with red dirt under feet. While the reception took place under the stars, with ample festoon lighting overhead. 

We assisted the couple in fine tuning their visual concept, assessing infrastructure requirements, briefing and coordinating all styling suppliers and of course bringing their vision to life. Our team packed their cars to the brim with gorgeous native blooms the morning before the big day and set off from Toowoomba, heading towards Banana some 500km+ away. 

Working alongside incredible suppliers, including catering masterminds Alfreshco, renowned rural Australian photographer Edwina Robertson and one of Rockhampton's most eclectic hire businesses Vintage Hire ensured our couples private property wedding was one to remember!

REAL WEDDING: Jess & Andrew, Preston Peak Winery

Jess & Andrew tied the knot at one of Toowoomba's finest escarpment locations - Preston Peak Winery. Upon first meeting Jess around 12 months prior to her wedding day, we knew from the get-go it was going to be a fun one!

Nicknamed 'JJ' by her friends and family, Jess had one serious girl squad beside her on the day who trekked through bushland with her for the perfect shot - as well as an incredible team of suppliers piecing her wedding vision together (if we do say so ourselves!). Including none other than her exquisite gown designed by Darb, which played homage to her fun loving nature with a gorgeous sequins top. And we all know what a little bit of sequins calls for?! A damn good party!

The rougy red and blush blooms paired perfectly with the maids Carla Zampatti gowns - also featuring a super cute baby bump to admire.

The couples reception styling was kept crisp, clean and simplistic with white and green blooms, touches of metallics, an abundance of candlelight, oodles of glass finishes and overhead festoon lighting bringing a whole other dimension to their tablescape come nightfall.  

This beau and his now wife sure threw a lively celebration to start their now chapter as newlyweds together with their nearest and dearest. P.s Check out these dance floor antics!

REAL WEDDING: Bek & Jack, Gabbinbar Homestead

A mild Spring day at Toowoomba's stunning Gabbinbar Homestead welcomed Bek & Jack's guests from all around the globe to marvel in the beauty of the grounds and of course the impending nuptials of two of their loved ones. Jack hails from the UK and together with Bek make one of the sweetest couples you ever did see. 

Jack's understated excitement pre ceremony and Bek's gorgeously glowing bridesmaids made for a heartwarming morning on site. While Bek's Dad officiated their ceremony - it was safe to say there were few dry eyes in the house! 

Bek's sweetly elegant style flowed through all aspects of the day, from her gown to her cottage rose bouquet. A simple palette of white, green and a touch of pink complimented Gabbinbar's light filled conservatory perfectly.

REAL WEDDING: Heidi & Sandy, Private Property, Thallon QLD

It was pastel posy gorgeousness for Heidi and Sandy, with a pop of fun thanks to the bright and boisterous 'billy buttons'. Heidi wore both a family heirloom vintage gown as well as contemporary Lover number - with both looks complimenting the blooms perfectly! Another private property wedding oozing style and grace.

REAL WEDDING: Allie & Nico, Private Property, Thallon QLD

Wed on their family property, an incredible amount of rain had fallen at Thallon in the 48 hours prior to the wedding but nothing could dampen these love birds and their extended families and friends excitement for the impending nuptials. 

We were thrilled to be asked to design Allie's country garden bouquets, reception blooms and invitation suite. Her talented family and friends pulled together a stunningly, bright and chic day - a true reflection of the Bride herself.

Allie's edgy Jennifer Gifford gown stole the show, which later in the evening paired with the perfect wellies as the ground began to soften thanks to the couples guests making their mark on the dance floor. 

REAL WEDDING: Kate & Will, Private Property, Miles QLD

Is there anything more endearing than a Groom who is absolutely smitten with his Bride? Of course you would expect this of most weddings, but there was something so sweet about the way Will looked at his Kate throughout their special day. Almost with a sense of non-belief that their story had brought them to this moment in time, the day they made a commitment forever to each other surrounded by their loved ones in an environment they hold so dear - home. 

Frolicking through the cotton fields post ceremony, Will and Kate's wedding day was held on their family property 'Condabri' just outside of Miles, QLD. The properties tended gardens hosted the 200 plus guests for the couples ceremony, while the rear yard welcomed guests to the afternoon drinks marquee and also the large reception space. 

A simple colour palette of crisp white and black completed the couples stationery suite and on the day signage. While additions of timber tones from the dark wood crossbacks at the reception and feminine pinks and reds from the gorgeous blooms solidified the timeless feel for the couples wedding. 

Kate wore a stunning gown, again with a concentration on timeless elegance. A contrast with a touch of native foliage reminded guests of their surroundings and made for QLD's very own ode to a royal Will & Kate.
