Complete the sentence: being married means being as one united family, my love and forever soulmate.
Exciting, emotional, and stressful were the words used by this week’s White Lily bride Kura when we asked her to describe her wedding planning in three words. Despite the stress, Kura’s special day turned out like the fairytale she had always dreamed of. Surrounded by the gorgeous nature of Currumbin Valley, mixed with the grand architecture of The Valley Estate, the Brisbane couple’s special day was a dream.
A Wedding at The Valley Estate
“I would describe our wedding classic and a fairytale.” We agree! Chandeliers hanging from the high ceilings combined with the classic charm of white roses and framed by the views of the luscious greenery at the Currumbin Valley on the Gold Coast, Kura and Brodie’s special day was a true fairytale. Captured by Desire Weddings and styled by the talented Stylised, we couldn’t get enough of their uniquely beautiful wedding images. From finally “walking down the aisle to Brodie and seeing a big smile on his face” to dancing the night away during their reception, this week’s White Lily couple’s wedding day was a dream. Being lucky enough to work with an array of amazing wedding vendors, Kura and Brodie’s vision was brought to life: “We loved all our vendors, it took me a while to find them, they all did an amazing job and were so easy to work with.” Reflecting back on their special day, Kura’s advice to future brides is to start planning your wedding as early as possible: “…the wedding day creeps up on you so quickly.”
Lace Dreams by Martina Liana Bridal
When you walk into our boutique, you share your vision, your dreams – Seeing it all finally come together is not only rewarding for you, but it sure puts a smile on our faces too. Especially, when the dress compliments the theme of your wedding so perfectly and we finally understand why the dress was destined to be yours, all along. Kura already had a few dresses in mind when she walked into our Red Hill bridal store, and it didn’t take her long to decide that TEMPLE by Martina Liana Bridal was ‘The One’: “I went dress shopping and knew the one as soon as I put it on. I loved the low back, buttons, lace, and detailing on my wedding dress.”
