QB Loves : Laura + Dean

Happy Monday QB readers! We are kicking off the week with a gorgeous wedding with a fresh green twist! Victorian-based couple Dean and Laura couldn't resist returning to Noosa, the scene of Dean's proposal, to say 'I do'. We adore their palette of chic monochrome with green accents.


Proposal Story:
I was heavily pregnant and we flew to Noosa for a wedding.Dean knew Noosa was very special to me because I grew up there, he was going to propose on the second night at Little Cove (my favourite beach) but was too excited, so after dinner and my favourite ice cream (Masimos) we went for a walk along the beach where he asked me to marry him! It was so special because there was no one else on the beach!




The Arrival:
Guests were led to the ceremony site by my wedding planners and a series of 'Laura and Dean' signs, protected with parasols and refreshed with iced San Pellegrino water from enormous wine barrels. Then a live band played Somewhere over the Rainbow as the couple glided down the aisle.



Styling Notes:
On arrival, guests were treated to an oyster bar, with chefs on hand to shuck the oysters fresh and peel prawns, and the fun continued inside with a photo booth complete with a dress-up box of wigs and masks. Attention to detail extended all the way to the bathrooms where mints, fresh flowers and luxurious AESOP products created a relaxing haven.

The reception was awash with white flowers of every description and candles in glass jars adorned the tree outside. "We also used over 50 hanging candles over the bridal table and had a total of 200 candles on the tables," recalls Laura. It was so special because the flowers smelled amazing and it was like a soft glow the restaurant." A costume change into a floaty Carla Zampatti gown for the first dance was the bride's final flourish. "We danced to Usher's OMG," Laura says. "It was fun and funky!"

Advice:
Get a wedding planner! They know all the best suppliers and you will be so relaxed on the day!

Special Memory:
On the morning of the wedding Dean's best man Troy, delivered the most amazing drop pearl and diamond earring to me, with a beautiful card saying how excited he is to be marrying me today!  The earrings were hand made by our jeweller Simon West! I did not expect it at all!
