With a dreamy lavender farm as the backdrop and a bombshell bride -to-be, Karlie and Ryan’s wedding could have leapt straight out of a Hollywood film!
The pair originally met through mutual friends on a night out, where they hit it off. Their love-filled wedding speeches from their nearest and dearest on the night highlighted the perfect mix of sweetness and strength they share as a couple. How cute is that?!
Their stunning setting was none other than the picturesque Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm near Mount Alford. This venue features a unique open-air-style chapel with a modern twist, situated amongst the aromatic lavender fields.
The couple opted for chic, yet classic styling choices in shades of pink and gold. Bold asymmetrical florals were a theme of the day with the bride clutching an abundant fresh bouquet tied in silk ribbons.
Karlie stunned in her strapless Enzoani gown – a bombshell mermaid wedding dress adorned with beads and visible corsetry through the back. The bride opted for a single-tier raw-edged veil and wore her Hollywood waves swept to the side with an intricate vine headpiece.
The final addition to Karlie’s epic wedding day look has a sweet story behind it.
“Ryan did one of the sweetest things for karlie leading up to their big day,” said their photographer Lauren.
“Away on a business trip in Sydney, he went in search for the perfect pair of shoes for his bride to be. With the help of Karlie’s bestie (and Maid of Honour) who painstakingly helped to decide which pair would perfectly compliment her incredible dress and details. Ryan surprised Karlie with her very own pair of Louboutin’s on the morning of their wedding day! And didn’t he do well!? What he didn’t realise was that walking around in said shoes could be a little bit of a problem and barely grumbled every time he had to lift and carry Karlie from each and every one of our bridal portrait locations. What a legend! Love your work Ryan!”
What a man! Anyone willing to carry their significant other in order to preserve a pair of pearl-studded Louboutins is a winner in our books!
