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.

unique wedding headpiece

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.
