By far one of the most exciting and unique weddings we saw in 2018, Karla & Jason’s festival wedding was a true party. The celebration saw friends and family come together over a few days to celebrate the happy couple’s nuptials first with a ceremony, and then with an amazing festival-style reception.
Jason and Karla first met at work, where their relationship blossomed over the year. They shared their first kiss at the business’ EOFY ball. Jason ended up proposing at a restaurant in IBIZA in 2016 with a very special ring he had gotten made especially for Karla in Dubai!
After deciding that they wanted their wedding to be slightly different from the usual style, the pair began bringing their magnificent idea to life. Karla used Pinterest for inspiration and bringing elements together to DIY the whole reception! The event was complete with a bouncing castle, variety of artists performing, grazing table, food trucks, popcorn cart and slushie machines! Incredible, right?
Our beautiful Bride-to-be, Karla wore a custom Penelope by Noosa designer, Erin Clare. This gown features a softly skimming tulle skirt and beautifully detailed bodice embellished with butterflies – the perfect match for Karla’s festival vibes. Karla loved it just as much saying:
“The thing I loved most was the customisation. Erin was able to make my dress perfect by changing the front to V neck and add additional butterflies to the back straps, making my dress extra special and one of the kind. The detailed butterflies were a gorgeous feature and the low back looked amazing!”
We loved Karla’s braided updo for the ceremony, which she changed to a gorgeous intricate braid for her weekend reception. She also changed up her look between days by switching from jewels to a raw flower crown. We are in love with Karla’s style!
The couple are hitting their honeymoon next month where they will spend nine weeks in South America. The plan to take part in Rio Carnivale alongside a Samba Float!
