Elise and Matt’s love story started at Cotton On Head Office where they met while working together. However, their journey to the wedding day was not without its challenges. Originally planning a trip to the Gold Coast for their wedding, they had to change their plans due to Covid-19 lockdowns. They then booked a trip to Darwin, which was also cancelled due to another lockdown. Finally, they settled on an alternate plan, which turned out to be beautiful.

Despite the difficulties in planning, the wedding itself was surprisingly straightforward once they had chosen the venue. They were able to bring everything together seamlessly. The couple invited around 150 of their nearest and dearest to celebrate their special day.

Elise’s style for the wedding was very classic. She wore a beautiful gown from Soho Bride, accompanied by a textured veil. The dress featured a gorgeous long train with pearl buttons down the back. To complete her look, Elise wore statement pearl earrings.

Matt and his groomsmen opted for a stylish ensemble. They wore navy chinos with sandy-coloured jackets, white shirts and navy bow ties. Matt’s bow tie had a pattern to add a unique touch.

When asked about their favourite moments from the wedding, Elise and Matt found it difficult to choose just one, however they cherished the time they spent with their families after the ceremony. The joy of witnessing their loved ones coming together to celebrate their marriage was truly special. As the night went on, they enjoyed drinks with their favourite people, adding to the unforgettable atmosphere of the evening.

Having their closest friends and family present was of utmost importance to the couple. They wanted to make sure they could spend quality time with everyone on their special day. Additionally, they valued a venue that could accommodate both the ceremony and reception for convenience.

Elise and Matt shared some advice for other couples planning their weddings. They emphasised the importance of discussing what is most important to both partners and focusing on those aspects. They also recommended choosing vendors that you genuinely enjoy spending time with as it enhances the overall enjoyment of the day.

Overall, Elise and Matt’s wedding was a classic and unforgettable celebration filled with love, joy and the presence of their cherished guests.
