Sara & Kye’s Euro-inspired Rose Bay Wedding

Both self-confessed suckers for European style (Kye proposed to Sara on the balcony of Maison Blanche in Paris after all) today’s couple channelled a distinctly Euro vibe for their wedding – a terracotta villa in Rose Bay providing the perfect backdrop for Justin Aaron’s camerawork.

Following a relaxed ceremony overlooking the water at McKell Park, the party continued well into the night. “We wanted an intimate, fun and relaxed wedding and one that took our guests on something of an adventure, making them feel they’d been transported to an amazing destination.” Shares Sara. Thanks to her background in film production, she tracked down the incredible Rose Bay residence and convinced the owners to let them host their wedding there. “With a bit of extra styling the house was absolutely perfect!”

Gallivant kept guests satisfied with roving canapes, share platters and cocktails and we’re loving their Mediterranean aesthetic. “We both had a European style wedding in mind,” tells Sara, “mixing influences of the romantic and elegant styles of Positano and the Amalfi coast and the colours and textures of Morocco and Turkey.”

Simple, elegant and reminiscent of Carolyn Bessette was Sara’s bridal brief for a custom made dress. Things don’t always go to plan however, and she had to find an alternative dress a week before the wedding, but it’s safe to say it was a blessing in disguise because she looked babin’ in her Carla Zampatti number.
