Dan & Jess in the Noah Gown

Whimsical, romantic and fun- what more would you expect from a wedding photographer on her big day?

A Grace woman to you is...

Whimsical, carefree and fun.

Which GRACE dress did you choose and how did you know it was ‘The One’?

As soon as I got engaged, I knew I wanted a GLL dress. I’ve had my heart set on their dresses for as long as I can remember so it was an easy decision. Choosing which dress however was the hard part, I fell in love with multiple that I tried on. I ended up choosing the Noah Gown with the Monet Veil. What set this dress apart for me was the way I felt in it. It was feminine, delicate, unique and so comfortable. It encapsulated my personality and the style of our wedding day perfectly.

Tell us about your experience when you found your dress, did you buy your wedding dress online or in one of our showrooms?

I bought my dress from the Burleigh, Gold Coast showroom. Trying on wedding dresses is something every girl dreams about and it felt so special and surreal being at Grace Loves Lace. I brought my mum, grandma and sister with me — cue lots of smiles, tears and excited squealing. It was such a sweet and fun memory that I will always remember!

How did you feel in your dress on the day?

I felt beautiful! I was so excited to see my husband’s reaction as I walked down the aisle and he saw my dress for the first time. I wish I could wear it again and again!

Where did you get married? Tell us about the location & the style of your wedding day.

We got married at Gabbinbar Homestead in Toowoomba. As a wedding photographer/videographer myself, I’ve visited many beautiful venues. But I completely fell in love with  Gabbinbar Homestead the very first time I visited around four years ago. From that moment, I dreamed of getting married there one day! There’s so much natural beauty and the Homestead is breath-taking, especially the reception conservatory with the glass ceiling. It was the perfect setting to encapsulate the style of our day which I would describe as whimsical, romantic and fun.

Tell us about your hair and makeup look and the accessories you chose…

I decided to keep my hair and makeup very natural as it was important that I truly felt like myself on the day. A soft, glowy makeup look with loose waves was the perfect reflection of me. I kept my jewellery simple with dainty gold and pearl earrings.

What made your day extra special?

It was very important to Dan and I that our wedding was Christ-centred and reflected our faith. Worshiping God together, saying our personal vows and sharing communion with each other (all whilst being surrounded by the people we love most in the world) were the sweetest and most joyful moments of our life. For us, it felt like a glimpse into heaven. It was so special!

The funniest moment on the day was…

The funniest moment of our day was probably the best man speech. He had the whole room in stitches. Oh, and there were definitely some hilarious dance moves!

Where will you be honeymooning?

We would have loved to go overseas but due to travel restrictions from COVID, we decided to honeymoon close by at Noosa. It was the perfect beach holiday and so relaxing!

Any last advice or words of wisdom that you can share…

My main piece of wedding advice would be to focus on what really matters — marrying your best friend. It’s definitely fun to pick out and plan all the details, but when you think back to your wedding day, it’s the little moments that you’ll remember. The look on your dad’s face when he sees you in your wedding dress, the excitement as you begin to walk down the aisle the happy tears as you read your vows. It’s truly these sweet moments that will mean the most. Try not to stress too much about the other things.
