It was back in high-school that Maddie and Ciaran first met, however, Ciaran waited until just before graduating to make his move. The two haven’t looked back after sharing many life-changing moments between them, from university and starting their careers, to their very first puppy and buying house! Maddie wouldn’t have had it any other way, “We couldn’t be luckier to have had each other through the ups and downs!” She said.
After going through so much together, the two were beyond excited to tie the know in their Northern New South Wales Ceremony with all their nearest and dearest present. “We are so fortunate to have so many people close to us, who have given so much love and support to us over the years. It was so special to be able to share and celebrate our marriage with them.” Said Maddie of her big day.
Our bride had so many beautiful moments to choose from that she couldn’t opt for just one favourite. Walking down the aisle to her soon-to-be husband, sharing their first kiss, speeches and the couple’s first dance together as husband and wife were standout moments for White Lily bride, Maddie. Their whole day shone with happiness and love.
Our divine bride, set the style stakes high in her luxe Ivania gown from the Atelier range by Pronovias. “The gown was everything I imagined and more,” said Maddie. Exuding timeless elegance, this gown features a glamorous boat neck, low back, long button-detail sleeves and classic train – all in the label’s signature luxe crepe. The fabric was by far our beautiful bride’s favourite element of her wedding look, saying “It was a perfect fit for the setting of our day. I loved the balance of the dress, to me it was the perfect meeting of simplicity, luxury, character and style.”
Maddie kept her hair in a chic tousled updo to allow the minimalist lines of the gown to do the talking, complemented beautifully with a blush and ivory bouquet and stylish ivory boots.
However, the groom and his groomsmen didn’t let the ladies have all the fashion fun. They all looked dapper in custom menswear by Institchu – each with their own unique suit lining allowing their personality to shine through.
When asked for her advice for our future brides-to-be, Maddie had sage wisdom to offer:
“The lead up to the day and the wedding itself has opportunities for things to not to go to plan and it’s important to remember that it can’t all be controlled. And that’s okay. Make the most of the day and share it with the people who are dearest to you, it is these memories that will stay with you forever.”
We couldn’t agree more!
