Grace & Josh

Love has its way of weaving magical tales, and the story of Grace and Josh is no exception. Their journey from a chance encounter at a friend's engagement party to a breathtaking sunset proposal and, finally, a garden party wedding, is a testament to the extraordinary bond they share.

We chatted to Grace about the details of their special day, from the picturesque venue and the stunning bridal squad to the timeless jewellery that added the perfect touch of elegance.

 

The Love Story

Grace and Josh's love story began seven years ago at a mutual friend's engagement party. While it may not have been love at first sight, their connection deepened with time, and they soon became inseparable.
Bonding over their shared love for the outdoors, especially the ocean, the couple spent countless weekends basking in the sun and engaging in heartfelt conversations.
After five years of dating, Josh orchestrated a beautiful proposal at Point Cartwright, an unexpected location that held nostalgic significance for the couple. The chaotic circumstances turned out to be serendipitous, leading to a magical sunset proposal followed by a celebration at their favourite Italian restaurant.

The Wedding Day

Held at the enchanting Sharla Park Country Weddings venue, Grace and Josh's garden party wedding was a dream come true. The couple's love for nature and each other set the tone for the day, creating an atmosphere of joy and celebration. One of the most cherished moments for the newlyweds was after their bridal portraits when they took a quiet stroll back to the reception, reveling in the overwhelming love and gratitude they felt for each other.

The Wedding Inspiration

The theme of the wedding was a whimsical Garden Party, reflecting the couple's love for nature and the outdoors. The choice of a garden-inspired setting created a romantic and ethereal ambiance, setting the stage for a day filled with love and laughter.

The Bridal Squad

Grace's bridal squad consisted of her two cousins, Chelsea and Tahlia, and her sister-in-law, Tamara. More like sisters than cousins, these ladies were the perfect companions for Grace on her big day. Opting for comfort and beauty, they found the ideal dresses from Hello Molly, aligning perfectly with the Garden Party theme.

The Jewellery Choice: Olivia Pearl Earrings

Grace chose the Olivia Pearl earrings with the Pearl Collar from Maison de Femmes to complement her feminine and ethereal wedding dress. The timeless and effortless pieces added a touch of sophistication, enhancing Grace's natural beauty. Discovered through Instagram, Maison de Femmes provided the perfect finishing touch to Grace's bridal ensemble.

I chose the Olivia Pearl Earrings with the Pearl Collar. My dress was quite feminine and ethereal, so I knew I wanted something along those same lines. As soon as I found them online, I ordered them - they were unlike anything I had seen before! Looking back on the photos, I love how timeless and effortless they are. I felt so beautiful on the day and love how perfectly they complimented my dress.

As Grace reflects on her dream wedding day, she wouldn't change a thing. It exceeded all her expectations, creating memories that will last a lifetime. The love story of Grace and Josh, from their serendipitous meeting to a fairytale wedding, serves as a beautiful reminder that true love, once found, is more magical than any dream or wish could ever capture. Cheers to a lifetime of love and happiness for this enchanting couple!
