real wedding: a gorgeous vintage seaside wedding - part 1

Today we have the gorgeous vintage seaside wedding of an extremely adorable couple, Calla and Michael. Their beautiful vintage themed wedding was held this autumn in the cute seaside suburb of Shorncliffe.  

Calla and Michael chose a dress code of dainty and daper. Calla and her bridesmaids were just that... dainty and beautiful. Calla wore an amazing lace wedding gown with her hair up in a simple graceful bun. I just love her shoes with bows! Her three bridesmaids wore different gowns all in shades of lemon yellow. Each bridesmaid matched in black lace gloves and handmade birdcage veils. Michael and his groomsmen were daper in suits with matching grey vests, pocket squares and bow ties.

Calla has an amazing eye for cute vintage pieces which she has on display in her home... including her fabulous owl collection. 

Aren't the girls stunning? Very dainty, vintage and timeless. The girls carried bouquets of white and yellow crysanthemum daisies, white rosebuds and baby's breath.

Calla and Michael were married mid morning in the local park that overlooks the bay. There ceremony rotunda was decorated with handmade bunting flags. 

Before enjoying their wedding lunch with their family and friends Calla, Michael and their bridal party had their stunning bridal portraits taken nearby at the iconic Shorncliffe Pier. 

The cute couple also had romantic portraits taken at Third Lagoon Reserve. 

Please come back tomorrow for Part 2 of this gorgeous wedding.
