We were so very excited to recently receive the most stunning wedding photos of the incredibly gorgeous Louise & Brett, shot by the fabulous Calli B Photography, every one of these photos took our breath away!
They had a very personal and emotional ceremony, held in the garden & afternoon sunshine under a beautiful tree at Maleny Manor. Louises younger 19 year old brother proudly walked his big sister down the aisle, and in memory of her late father she wore a locket with a photo of her Dad in it. In loving tribute to her parents she also had a feature table at the reception that had a few photos of her dad, an old work diary of his with his notes all through it, and a wedding invitation of Louises parents. All gorgeous personal touches that make this wedding a very personal and special event indeed.
Louise was attened by 4 gorgeous bridesmaids who wore cream and carried bouquets to match the brides. Following the ceremony they held a garden party in the stunning grounds of Maleny Manor where they served champagne & sumptuous hors d'oeurves such as Miniature fillet mignons with bernaise sauce, tempura whiting with wasabi mayonnaise and bloody mary oyster shooters. oh my!
Louise is a florist with the incredibly talented team at Mondo, and with a brilliant sense of a style and a gorgeous love of flowers, her styling was nothing short of spectacular! She chose all her favourites that were in season including Cymbidium orchids, Sahara roses, Honeymoon roses, succulents, dodder vine, chocolate magnolia, Molluca Balm, Hyacinths, Freesias and privot berry.
"I had a slightly different floral design on each guest table and I used a variety of vases, filled with an assortment of all my favourite flowers. I bought gorgeous, old-fashioned crochet table cloths for the tables & handmade our place cards using vintage floral patterned fabrics."
We think its so gorgeous when our wedding couples surprise each other with little gifts and quirky momentos on the day. Brett is a plumber, so his cuff links were little taps with "Hot" on one and "Cold" on the other, and as a wedding cake he desperately wanted an icecream cake, so Louise had him made a special little icecream wedding cake with a personal inscription. So sweet!
A beautiful beautiful couple and by all accounts a beautiful day, Congratulations Louise & Brett!
