After meeting at church and getting past the initial ‘shy stage’, Sophie and Jase couldn’t wait to commit to a lifetime of loving each other: “…he’s the best person on earth and life with him is immeasurably more joyful.” The feels…
When the wedding date finally arrived, the green and natural theme of the day was finished with the most beautiful selection of maroon-coloured flowers. The deep-red elements added to the homely atmosphere and created cozy vibes all throughout the day.
Wedding Planning and Advice
Being a wedding professional herself, Sophie knew that Covid-19 was going to be a challenge. As a wedding photographer, our White Lily bride had to not only deal with the stress of her covid-affected couples but also with the ever-changing restrictions of her own wedding. Nevertheless, Sophie and Jase were able to find a creative solution: “Pre-Covid, we would've had about 350 guests! In the end, we had two days with two different lots of guests to work around the regulations at the time, and those who were stranded across the border tuned in via livestream.” A covid-wedding in a nutshell!
Despite the stressful planning, Sophie and Jase loved every moment of their special day. “There were several times that we paused and looked around - at all of our guests inside and outside the marquee just enjoying themselves and at how beautiful it all was… seeing our loved ones all having a good time together made us absolutely over the moon.”
To help out future brides, Sophie even revealed her wedding planning secret “Jase and I wrote down what the top 3 priorities for our wedding day were to us, and we went from there. The only thing you actually *have* to do on your wedding day is the legal stuff in the ceremony - everything else is free game.”
When it was time to ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, Sophie was looking for a unique wedding gown, she hadn’t seen on one of her brides before: “… I've seen a lot of gowns in my time, some of them multiple times over, but this gown was unique to me and it felt like mine and only mine.” Sophie loved how her wedding dress by Wedding Societe was comfortable and flowy. She even added some tulle off-the-shoulder sleeves and a layer of skin-coloured tulle, to give the skirt a champagne colour and custom look.
Our bride of the week Sophie absolutely nailed her wedding day look and managed to organise not one, but two unforgettable wedding days. With memories to keep for a lifetime, newlyweds Sophie and Jase are looking forward to lots of adventures to come: “…if we're lucky, overseas ones! And a whole lot of love and navigating whatever it is that life brings our way with joy together as a team.”
