23rd September 2017
How many guests?
How did you and your partner meet?
We met through mutual friends whilst attending a music festival on the Gold Coast.
How did he propose?
Jase surprised me when I arrived home from a week long work trip. He surprised me with flowers and made the room look amazing. He prepared a will you marry me tick a box (I had told him how cute I thought it was in school when boys would pass around notes to ask a girl out and include a tick a box at the bottom) so he made sure I got to tick yes for the last time!!
What do you love most about your partner?
He is the most genuinely caring man- sometimes he thinks he covers this up but you can see it in his eyes every day.
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
Talk to each other and be real. Too many people speak to everyone else but their partners about how they feel when that is the person they should go to first.
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it?
I loved so many gowns but I was forever drawn to anything with a hint of colour outside the usually whites and ivory. The lace was intricate and detailed and the exposed boning and buttons perfection.
Did you do a ‘first look’ before the ceremony?
No, we had so much going on bringing together a traditional wedding with Macedonian cultural wedding. Plus, I wanted Jase to see me for the first time walking down the aisle.
What flowers did you opt for?
Cream blooms mixed with abundant greenery
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
I wanted a soft romantic style with punches of glam. Charlie for Stylised made this happen combining Grey and Gold to perfection. The table decor was also a grey and gold theme. Charlie went to great lengths to source the table cloths in a beautiful grey that matched the bridesmaids’ dresses.
How did you come to choose the location and venue?
Coming from a big family I have been to so many weddings in Brisbane and Jase and I wanted ours to be different so we chose a location that not only suited our style but was one that we hadn’t been to before.
Can you describe what type of ceremony you had and how you were able to personalise it?
We had many elements in the Macedonian ceremony including; the crowning, ring & wine and first steps as husband and wife wrapped together with a beautiful piece of chiffon.
What was your wedding cake like?
The wedding cake was a simply designed 4-tiered cake with brushed gold accents and 2 large white magnolia style flowers. We had 2 different flavours a white chocolate caramel tier and an almond & coconut mud which we served the following day at my parent’s place.
What were your favorite moments from the day?
The super excited feeling of getting ready with my girls and my mum in the morning, reading a letter from Jase in the morning, seeing him as I walked down the aisle and off course partying the night away.
Name your wedding soundtrack (aisle entrance & exit, reception entry, first dance songs):
Isle entrance was Angels by The XX- First dance- XO John Mayer (Beyonce cover)
Where did you go on honeymoon?
Europe- Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Florence & Berlin
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
