The order in which Allyce and Daniel swapped vows was decided the same way they make all their decisions – with a friendly game of paper scissors rock. This cool couple had already won us over with their boho garden party wedding at Merrimac’s Braeside Chapel but the fact that one of our fave photography duos shot the whole thing is just an added bonus – Trent and Jessie never disappoint!

While their wedding was a relaxed affair, there’s no doubt Daniel knows a bit about romance – his proposal after a horse and carriage ride around Melbourne says it all! “We stopped to take pictures at a fountain (at the Botanical Gardens) and Dan told me to close my eyes…” Allyce tells us. When she opened them he was down on one knee and he rest is history! “It was a bit of a blur but I remember jumping on him so excited before he could even say anything. I finally regathered myself, let him ask me and of course I said YES!”

The ceremony itself took place under one of the most incredible laurel trees we’ve seen and the pair left the styling up to Mother Nature, save for some draped fabric and a dream catcher, while Gold Coast Wedding and Event Hire did the rest. Canapés on the lawn were followed by a roast dinner (courtesy of Spits n Pieces) and a whole lotta dancing ensued – no surprise when you’ve got The Paper Flowers on board.

Braeside is an absolutely gorgeous venue,” says Allyce, “and you can see how much pride the owners John and Judy take in keeping their property in immaculate condition. Even better, it’s only 10 minutes from the Gold Coast. Having the ceremony and reception at the same place was so convenient and made the day flow really well.”
