Real Life, Real Stories

Set on a huge family paddock on the banks of the Clarence River, Roxie shares how she was able to celebrate her wedding early this year surrounded by her closest family and friends. Her mother Tracey wore our beautiful Bellisima Beaded dress and looked simply stunning. 

Somewhere in between all the fires, floods and devastation of the earlier part of this year, Bryce and I were lucky enough to sneak in our very own love fest on the beautiful banks of the Clarence River,” Roxie said. 

With a beautiful backdrop of a tranquil river, both her wedding ceremony and reception were nestled inside her family’s private farm. The event showcased the natural and ethereal beauty of a countryside wedding, capturing the beauty of the river in her photos and emphasising her family roots and love for nature and simplicity.

Crafting an intimate space amongst the vastness of the landscape created a hidden oasis for her family to celebrate together. Her family worked tirelessly to put together this country-style wedding - her now father-in-law, father and close family set up beautiful tables, tents, prepared the garden space and even created a large customised dancefloor with her and her new husband’s initials!

“It was such a down to earth country-style wedding, full of so much love. But I must admit my family love to party, and that is exactly what we did. It is safe to say that my family never does anything half-heartedly.” 

Her floral arrangements matched the colour scheme of the surroundings, with country touches of native bush, woodland-inspired tones and preserved flowers. Enhancing her tablescape display with Australian natives and rustic touches created understated elegance and added charm to her country wedding.

Opting for pastels, soft muted tones and neutral colours for her bridesmaid party and overall theme, her mother Tracey wanted to complement the colour scheme with a mutual colour to match. 

Tracey discovered our brand Montique a long time ago but knew straight away that she wanted to wear our dress. 

“I wanted something with a sleeve and high neckline, and a little bit of sparkle would be extra special and perfect for the Mother of the Bride,she said.

The Belissima Beaded Dress was a perfect choice for the occasion. Pairing the dress with an up-do hairstyle and neutral heels, Roxie’s mum sparkled and dazzled with every step. The shape beautifully showcased and complimented her silhouette, and the soft neutral tones paired with the beads created an ethereal look.
