Real Life Wedding : Nicholas and Katherine

"Stick with your everyday style" note couple Katherine and Nicholas when asked about their best styling advice. We love the way this true-to-self approach injected style and personality into this gorgeous celebration.

To pull it off the couple made the most of Brisbane's local talent including gowns by covetable label Easton Pearson, decorating assistance from Brisbane-based stylists Everingham and Watson, and delicious gourmet catering by Restaurant Two

The newlyweds name "the ceremony" as their most special memory in a celebration full of magical moments.

Number of Guests

How did you meet? 
"We re-met when Nick moved back to Brisbane from Sydney but always had a good friendship prior to this."

The Proposal
"At home on a Sunday morning, an hour before our lunch guests arrived, including our parents who were to meet for the first time ... they weren’t short of conversation." 

12 friends for lunch at The Spirit House, Yandina

Dining Details 
The bridal party requested "a picnic-type feel" so the menu included 18-hour slow roasted sirloin steak, 18-hour slow roasted whole pig with crackling, a rocket, Greek fetta and tomato salad, and Restaurant Two's signature potato salad.
