real wedding: a beautiful and fun australian wedding - part 2

Today we have Part 2 of the beautiful and super fun storybook themed wedding of Jaimee and JK. 

Jaimee and JK had super cute bridal portraits taken at the State Library, which Jaimee says 'I guess is a nod to our storybook theme after all'. 

Jaimee carried an organic floral bouquet in shades of soft pinks, peaches, blues, off whites and creams. The amazing bouquet was a pretty mixture of 'garden style roses, soft pink double tulips allowed to open, pink, peach and cream ranunculus, sim carnations, snap dragons, delphinium, poppies and blushing bride'. The bouquet was designed by Green & Bloom

Their reception was held at the Mirra. Their table centres were styled with tea lights and quirky milk jugs filled with colourful snap dragons and roses from the flower markets (that Jaimee and JK picked out themselves a few days before). Guests found their seats with individual vintage soda bottles and name tags. They were given cute little badge favours made by The Hungry Workshop

Jaimee and JK had several amazing wedding cakes including a hazelnut chocolate and rose berry cake. They also had glass cake stands filled with sweet biscuits for guests to enjoy. 

For their reception, Jaimee changed her bridal veil for a simpler headpiece by Johanna Johnson

Jaimee was surprised with a fabulous speech from her new husband. After a holiday years ago where they saw honeymooners dressed the same, Jaimee asked JK if they could do the same just for fun. So for their honeymoon JK presented Jaimee with a set of matching pyjamas and a cute 'I Heart JK' t-shirt to match. The couple were also surprised with Chinese dancers, a tribute to JK's background. 

favourite wedding detail: The flags at the ceremony made the walk back down the aisle so joyous.

favourite wedding moment: My husband’s speech. It was such a surprise for me, and so eloquent. There was also a very sweet moment in the car on the way to the church when one of my flower girls said she was nervous because she’d never been in a wedding before. My dad reassured her by telling her that this was my first time in a wedding too. We were all so nervous and excited and it was such a sweet thing to say.

your wedding day ideas: We just wanted to create an atmosphere that our guests would enjoy and relax in and that we would both love. We wanted to look around and have all our favourite things and people in the room so that’s where we started.

your wedding day inspiration: I think the thing about weddings is most people only do them (or even are involved in planning them) once in their lifetime, so you go into it not really know where to start. I looked at some magazines but I mainly spent time on blogs, photographers blogs, wedding blogs, dress designers, lifestyle and design blogs and I went to different shops and would put things and colours together in the store. I would’ve loved for Pinterest to be around when we were planning our wedding. I made my own mood boards but that would’ve been so much easier.

Thank you Jaimee and JK for letting us share your gorgeous wedding and congratulations on an amazing day.
