An Australian Wedding

I get so happy when I see sweet and simple weddings that come together with such elegance. That’s one of the many reasons why I love this gorgeous Australian wedding from the talented Glen Allsop. Oh, and how lovely is the charming headpiece that the bride helped design for her big day?

I wore an incredible silk gown encrusted with glass beading by Australian designer Collette Dinnigan, it was the first dress I tried on! My head piece was made by a local milliner and we designed it together to compliment my dress. Bradley wore a classic black Zambesi suit with RM Williams boots and my beautiful bridesmaids wore gorgeous green frilly frocks by Aussie designer Lee Matthews.

For the wedding cars we borrowed a vintage EH Holden from a good friend of mine as I have a real soft spot for classic Aussie cars however we were still in need of a second car. One afternoon Bradley came across the perfect EJ Holden in a supermarket carpark and left the owner a note to see if they would be interested in hiring it out, they owner was stoked and her boyfriend was our driver on the big day!

Bradley and I were searching for the perfect outdoor location for our wedding ceremony and living by the beach this was the obvious choice. However, we chanced upon an amazing fig tree on a silky green lawn beside a creek in Pittwater – we were married there and the wooded forest made for the perfect green cathedral. I was quite fussy about the type of flowers we all carried, as I wanted them to feel like fresh picked garden bouquets. My friend’s mum did the flowers and she really captured the feel I was after and the huge Australian native arrangements at the reception venue were just stunning. I collected all sorts of vessels for the flowers from op shops around Sydney to enhance the eclectic feel of our wedding.

    Such a beautiful dress. It sits on her perfectly and almost looks like a greek toga. It’s so simple. And the head piece compliments it perfectly.

    Such a pretty wedding! Love the bride’s headpiece and the ruffled bridesmaid dresses in such a fresh green color. The goddess style wedding dress is such a welcome departure from the typical strapless dress.

    “Green cathedral,” well said! The attire is glamorous, but set against the trees, the wedding is lovely & simple. I didn’t notice her beautiful headpiece until she turned… I love it!

    The head piece is so beautiful…a shame that you barely get to see it on the picture as she is always turned to the other side.
