A Grace woman to you is...
A woman who is confident in being 100% herself. She is bold. She is brave. She is herself.
She personifies joy and enjoys life to the full.
Which GRACE dress did you choose and how did you know it was ‘The One’?
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to create a custom gown, the Behati, with the beautiful team at GRACE. The design was a gorgeous two piece gown with a fitted waist and flowy skirt with a backless, sheer sleeve top. We decided to use the Loyola Silk fabric for this gown. I’ve had my eye on this fabric for a while and it is my absolute favourite! It is so timeless, weightless, and gorgeous.
Tell us about your experience when you worked with the GRACE team to create your dream gown?
I was very fortunate to be able to work closely with Meg & Rosie to create the Behati Gown. They brought a sense of ease and nothing was ever ‘too hard’. There were actually no massive changes that needed to be made to the original pattern… they absolutely nailed it for the first fitting! I am beyond grateful to have done this and for the girls bringing my dream dress to life. It was extra special being apart of the experience and watching an idea come to flourish very beautifully.
How did you feel in your dress on the day?
I felt myself. Which was the most important thing for me! I knew that if I felt like myself then I would feel grounded and happy on the day. The second most important thing for me was to be comfy… and boy, was I comfy!
Where did you get married? Tell us about the location & the style of your wedding day.
We got married in Palm Beach, NSW. We decided on our venue first. Moby Dicks was an all white venue with a beautiful panoramic view of the ocean. It was our dream and we booked it right away. We then found the ceremony spot… Just down a beautiful palm tree-lined path we found a grassy spot right on the water. We hired a house on the water just next to this path for a few nights and we had our ceremony right out the front! It was a relaxed yet elegant beach wedding. And it was exactly what Nat and I dreamt!
Tell us about your hair and makeup look and the accessories you chose…
My goal was for everything to be simple. So, my makeup was quite minimal! The brief was dewy, natural & bronzed. Anneke did such an amazing job. She has been doing my make up for years so it was very special to have her there on the day. Pete did my hair… we decided on a simple low bun! He was extra lovely and both of them did an amazing job on all the girls and on my beautiful mum.
What made your day extra special?
The day itself was just so special. I don’t think I could pick just one thing that made it special! It was perfect and was so ‘us’. However, maybe the fact that I fell even more inlove with Nat (my husband) was pretty special.
The funniest moment on the day was…
The girls and I all decided to practice walking down the asile in our heels with our pjs on! Ha. It was so funny. I also loved when Nat carried my dirty, sand filled skirt for me after I went in the water! He couldn’t believe I did it and we both just kept laughing.
Where will you be honeymooning?
We were fortunate enough to make it across the QLD border to Hamilton Island. We stayed at Qualia and it was an absolute dream.
Any last advice or words of wisdom that you can share…
Advice for leading up to the day: Have fun. Don’t get caught up in the planning and detail of the wedding day… Get caught up in the reason for the day! I was able to say yes to forever to the man of my dreams.
Advice for the day: Don’t stress over the little things & do things that will help keep you grounded and present.
