I find it quite special when couples choose a wedding venue based on the familiarity it brings. The venue sets the mood and vibe of the wedding, after all. So when today’s darling duo got engaged on a stunning clifftop, they made sure to choose a similar spot and booked Spicer’s Peak Lodge in Australia as their wedding venue. It brought them all the majestic, breathtaking views that only a hilltop wedding could bring. Such a sweet spot, I must say!
The bride Jess wanted to wear something comfy for the day and chose a simple cut yet stunning Watters gown. She shares, “I chose my wedding gown at Belladonna Bridal in Brisbane. I was looking for really beautiful and intricate classic detailing but still wanted something I could dance and party in and feel comfortable in all day.” Oh, how she looked exquisite!
She described the day as classic, timeless and elegant. The venue they chose spoke so much on how magnificent everything was. “We splurged on our venue, photographer and dresses. We also paid for guest accommodation so they could stay the night in a gorgeous lodge and celebrate with us the next morning for breakfast. After all, they are some of the most important parts and it was our venue that created the elegant atmosphere we were after. We saved on transport, with the ceremony and reception at the same place.”
And her piece of advice to future brides? “Keep your perspective centered. A wedding is just one day, and things do go wrong; embrace it. The weather on our day was absolutely crazy but as a result, some of our best photos are swirled in fog and rain!”
Thank you so much, Jeremy and Jess, for sharing this intimate, heartfelt wedding! We can’t help but swoon-over the beautiful scenery at your wedding!
