How did you decide on your GLL gown and accessories?

I came across the Francis gown on Pinterest one day and instantly knew that was my dress. The bell sleeves were what drew me in, as soon as I tried it on it felt right. It was everything I wanted in a gown – romantic, comfortable and timeless. It was really important to me to feel like myself. Having become a stylist at GLL during the lead up to my wedding I was so lucky to be able to wear the Hadley gown before it was launched as part of the Les Deux Collection. Hadley had my name written all over it, I love anything off the shoulder. It was edgy, sexy and effortless. It was the perfect balance to change into for our reception. My accessories just came naturally, I kept it really simple with the Virtue Pearl Earrings, dreamy Gabriela Veil and Dosa Heels.


Describe your look in three words…

Dreamy, Effortless and Natural.


How did he propose?

Matt proposed to me at sunrise on the top of the Burleigh Heads Hill lookout at home on the Gold Coast with a magical picnic to follow set up by my best friends. He had a friend hiding amongst the trees who captured the moment. It was low key, relaxed and us to a tee.

What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?

Being a destination wedding our ultimate goal was for everyone to be relaxed and in holiday mode. We really wanted our wedding to reflect us – simple, fun and non traditional. A  party that everyone looks back on and wants to do it all over again!


The funniest moments on the day were…

Jumping in the pool in our wedding clothes and Matt dancing the whole night in his speedos!

What was the most stressful part to planning?

Not being in the same country during the planning was hard as I like to be hands on, but our wedding planner was incredible and made the planning process so easy and stress free.


Any top beauty/health/fitness or wedding preparation advice that you can share…

Look after yourself inside and out. Eating healthy and nutritious foods is what gives you that wedding glow. Drink lots of water, get some vitamin D and keep moving!

A GLL woman is to you…

Natural, Carefree and Confident!


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

We were given advice from some friends to take 10 minutes out from the wedding together after the ceremony to soak it all in and just have that time together to reflect. It’s one of those really surreal moments. Your wedding day goes so fast so just be present, really relax and enjoy yourselves together. It really is the best day of your life.
