Madeleine & David’s Luxe Farm Wedding

A friend’s picturesque farm made for an incredible location for Madeleine and David’s wedding, styled with a ‘resort’ theme in mind – think a fresh palette of whites and greens and a relaxed lounge setup.

We can’t help but get a slightly Scandi vibe from the clean, crisp colour palette but perhaps that’s partly due to their photographer – with such a stunning Townsville landscape as the backdrop and Aleksandar Jason’s cool aesthetic, the wedding snaps were always going to be magical, and let’s be honest, the sweet little deer helped too!

Keeping everyone in the one place was a priority for these newlyweds and they were delighted with the overall setup, “We had the ceremony right next to the reception marquee.” says Madeleine, “Once the ceremony finished and the bridal party went off for photos our guests could move straight into the marquee for champagne and a huge antipasto station  (courtesy of Essentially Fresh). We liked that our guests didn’t have to wait around for hours.”

Finding ‘the one’ is hard enough, but once you’ve found the perfect partner, then you must find the perfect dress! Madeleine had a bit of a false start, however. She fell in love with a dress on Instagram that was sold out, so tried to have a replica made. One disaster of a dress later and Madeleine made up her mind to order a structured Toni Maticevski number and she never looked back. “It was perfect.”She tells us. “I think everything happens for a reason and the dress I ended up wearing on the day was definitely the one for me!”

The dearest little deer we ever did see! This Majors Creek property had a special significance to the pair, having spent many happy moments there together, "We thought it would be the perfect location not only because of the beautiful landscape but because it was private and meant something to us both." Madeleine says.

The bridesmaids looked gorgeous in chic matching Zimmermann dresses and mixed things up a little with different bouquets of the same palette.

"We had a cocktail style reception (dished up by Essentially Fresh) which I just loved." David tells us. "Our friends and family are such a fun bunch of people - by 7pm the dance floor was already full. Madeleine and I loved that all of our guests were up and mingling and having a really good time."
