Today we’re sharing the lust-worthy wedding of Lili and Michael who are from Melbourne, Australia.
After proposing completely out of the blue during an episode of Family Guy, this laid-back couple opted for an intimate outdoor wedding at The Willows in St Kilda, a suburb of bustling Melbourne, and treated their guests to the most lavish golden dessert table – just wait until you see it!
A huge thanks to Adorn Invitations who have kindly shared their day with us.
Best bride and groom shoes, ever? We think so!
“We wanted a place that was intimate and beautiful. As soon as I saw the court yard and the beautiful willow tree of The Willows, we knew that we found the perfect reception venue. The Willows really inspired us to have an elegant, glamorous theme. We then looked into the flowers, décor and invitations to match this. It was a relatively easy planning process as we gave ourselves plenty of time, and were quite loose with our budget,” explained Lili.
The couple decided to dedicate a good share of their budget to Lili’s dream couture wedding gown, and on their amazing catering and dessert table. “Having a custom made dress that I was truly in love with was important to me – so I didn’t mind splurging. Also the gold-dusted candy bar was an absolute favourite with the guests,” she added.
The couple chose a black and gold colour scheme with a touch of the 1920s. It was captured beautifully through their signage, which was created by Adorn Invitations.
“My bridal gown was handmade by Neomi Pereira from Neomi Allens Couture. I wanted something modern, Western and elegant but with a whisper of The East. Neomi brought it to life and her creation was gracefully modern, effortlessly elegant and the perfect harmony of East and West. What stood out to me were the details, the tiny flowers, sewn by hand, with love in every stitch, the pearls, the lace, the collar….all amazing,” said Lili.
“The day could not have been more perfect!” said Lili. “My advice to everyone planning their wedding is to relax, chill, drink, eat and be married. Seriously girls, don’t sweat the small stuff!”
Sounds pretty perfect to us!
