Tell us a little about your day…
We were so lucky to wake up to the most perfect weather after a few days of rain! The dreamy sunrise set the mood for a magical day. It was really special having my beautiful friends, mum and nanna getting ready with me. I was even lucky enough to have my auntie do my hair! Time flew and before we knew it the girls helped me into my dress ready for our first look.

Figtree helped us feel all of the emotions before capturing our first glimpse at each other. It was magical having this time to ourselves to take it all in and embrace the moment. I’ve never seen my dad so emotional, I am so grateful we had time together with a sneaky tequila shot before walking down the aisle. Daniel and I couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces, there was lots of laughter and a few tears before we walked back down the aisle as Mr & Mrs through a shower of rose petals.

Cocktail hour began and it was time to celebrate with our bridal party. Figtree helped us feel relaxed and captured the most spectacular photos of us with our best friends in the stunning Byron Bay hinterlands. Our dads shared some beautiful words before we enjoyed a champagne tower and more delicious canapés.

Next up it was time to move inside to our reception to hear more heartfelt words from our bridal party. Fig Tree Restaurant put on the most delicious feast! Daniel and I shared our first dance under the grapevines before moving the party inside with many espresso martinis, delicious cheese platters & desert! Everyone joined us on the dance floor for a few hours before the Magic Bus helped us continue the party down to the Bolt Hole!

BEST DAY EVER! It was pretty amazing having everyone travel interstate to be there just for us. Destination weddings are the best! Emotions are high and everyone is on another level.

If we could do it all again, we’d tell ourselves…
If we could offer any advice to future couples it would be… embrace every moment and don’t sweat the small stuff! All of your planning will work out and come together better than you envisioned. Book Figtree, they are amazing!

Tell us a little about your day…
SENSATIONAL! There is no other way to explain the day. We had it all: sunshine, rain, laughter and tears but most of all we made the most sincere and exciting promise of our lives surrounded by those we love most.

If we could do it all again, we’d tell ourselves…
Enjoy the entire process of organising/planning as the day itself is finished in the blink of an eye.

If we could offer any advice to future couples it would be…
Enjoy every moment, the day goes by so quickly be present in every moment and try and soak up every little detail as it is all over too soon.
