Beautiful wedding decor and views that will take your breath away. This week’s White Lily bride had us gasping with her stunning wedding images.
Our bride of the week, Monique, met her other half when she attended the Roma Races, also known as ‘love’ races, in 2015. As soon as they laid eyes on one another, Monique and Brad couldn’t help but feel the spark. What started off as a long-distance relationship, soon turned into the most magical bond. After powering through their first year of spending far too much time apart, the Queensland couple finally decided to move in together.
After all these years together, Monique and Brad finally became husband and wife. Their wedding took place on their magical estate in Kingaroy. With an amazing backdrop and gorgeous views, the Queensland couple’s day was highlighted by soft and romantic tones. The pastel pink flowers and luscious greens created a warm, intimate, and unforgettable ambiance. The day was completed by the presence of Monique and Brad’s closest friends and family. “…Our day was magic and I could never have imagined it to be as perfect as it was. “
As Monique planned her wedding, she prioritised three things: The wedding dress, the flower arrangements, and a photographer that would be able to capture all of her precious wedding day moments. With her sister in law being the owner of Shutter + Lace, she got a talented photographer and supporting bridesmaids in one. She also got lucky with her hairstylist, who happened to be one of her bridesmaids as well. A real power bridal party!
When she began her bridal journey, Monique was looking for a wedding dress that stood out from the crowd. She tried on ORA by Enzoani and was fascinated by all the details. She also loved the stunning train, Enzoani is renowned for: “…the reaction from my bridesmaids when I walked out in ‘Ora’ was unforgettable and that was how I knew it was ‘the dress’.”
“The experience at White Lily was like no other. Rachel was so kind, she made me feel so comfortable and didn’t mind if we tried on every gown to find my dream dress. The beautiful boutique made the experience so special and I loved that there were so many different designers and styles to chose from.” Monique truly looked incredible and we can’t even begin to explain how happy we are to have made her bridal dreams come true.
As we all know, organising a wedding isn’t always a walk in the park. One of the questions we always ask our White Lily brides is how they managed to plan their wedding during Covid-19. Since a large chunk of Monique and Brad’s guests were in New South Wales, the Queensland couple had to reduce their guest list significantly. To get through these difficult times and to deal with the ever-changing restrictions, Monique advises to establish plans for different scenarios surrounding Covid: “…at least then if a situation arises it won’t be as stressful.”
Having dealt with some of the most stressful times, our White Lily bride of the week also advises to enjoy the experience and to make your wedding your own: “…everyone has their own style so as long as you love it that is all that matters.”
Saying ‘I do’ was only the start to all of the exciting things ahead, in Monique and Brad’s future. The newly-weds can’t wait to find a place to call home and spend the rest of their lives together.
