Hannah & Adriaan's Intimate Wedding - White Lily Couture

Hannah & Adriaan's Intimate Wedding

It was the intimacy that made their special day unforgettable. White Lily bride Hannah and Adrian’s wedding day was filled with laughter, joy, and endless love. 

From high school friends to partners for life - Hannah and her husband Adriaan’s journey began way back in year 8, when they were placed in the same class together. As their friendship formed throughout the years, Hannah and Adrian went to year 12 formal together and finally started dating not long after graduation. High school sweethearts in a nutshell!

As COVID19 struck, Hannah and Adriaan’s initial plans of having their big white wedding with 120 guests was cancelled. However, waiting around wasn’t an option for the both of them. ”After a lot of thought we decided we didn’t want to wait any longer to be married and moved forward with 16/05/2020 and the restrictions were lifted to 10 guests the night before so our immediate families could come!

In the end, it was the intimacy that made their wedding day unforgettable. They moved the wedding to Adriaan’s parents farm, where they celebrated by a fire and created memories they will cherish forever. “It was just about us wanting to be married and not all the big stresses of a normal wedding.” Can it get any more romantic?

When Hannah came to White Lily, all the the stress and anxiety from moving her wedding forward vanished. “Lisa was so kind and caring and just made the experience very enjoyable… The whole process was faultless and I’m very thankful to White Lily! 

Although, Hannah didn’t initially want to try on GENEVA by Stella York, she ended up saying yes, as soon as she saw how beautifully it fit. “I love that it was really beautiful in its design, it wasn’t in your face but it had so many small details in the lace and bedding.” Hannah ended up looking absolutely stunning in her dress.

Given the stressful times Hannah was put through, she was able to give one major piece of advice: Don’t stress about the small things! “Before the wedding got cancelled I was so stressed about flower placement and how many canapés etc but once it wasn’t possible to have the big wedding it just put it all in perspective! It’s about you and your partner getting married and sharing that special moment together.” Sometimes we just need to rewind and think about what truly matters. In the end it’s all about the love, isn’t it?

Initially, the couple planned to spend their honeymoon on Hamilton Island; however, they decided to postpone their plans to next year. “…we just ended up spending two nights in Maleny together in a little cabin which was very romantic and sweet.” Although things didn’t go as planned, the freshly married couple is beyond excited to spend the rest of their lives exploring and having fun together.

White Lily bride Hannah really shows us, that no matter what curve balls get thrown at you, true love always wins.
