We are so excited to share the images from this insanely gorgeous, stylish, dreamy and personalised wedding! Frances and Gordon put so much thought, time and effort into the planning of their Balmoral Beach nuptials and you could really see their personalities shine through in every detail. You’ll remember this beautiful couple from their engagement session on Narrabeen Beach earlier this year. As beach lovers, it just made sense for them to hold their wedding in Balmoral. We started the day with Frances up in Narrabeen, where we were treated to the beautiful array of details, all perfectly coordinated with their peach, coral, cream, gold, and grey colour palette. Frances incorporated Australian native wildflowers into the bouquet which I just loved!
Frances even thought to get a colour-coordinated robe to wear while she got her hair and makeup done. I just love the colours! The lovely Fleur Denny created Frances’s gorgeous hair and makeup.
I have to say I was just as head-over-heels about Frances’s wedding gown as she was! When we first met Frances, she had just visited the Johanna Johnson boutique and was in the process of deciding on a gown. Johanna Johnson is one of my personal favourite bridal gown designers, so I secretly hoped Frances would end up choosing one of her silky, elegant creations. The gown Frances chose seemed just perfect for her, made from the most luxurious thick champagne-gold silk with intricate beading. It’s dresses like this that make me wish I could get married again! =)
One of Frances’s family members hand-crocheted her garter for her…what incredible detail work.
Who made these amazing bouquets, you ask? It was actually Frances and her sister themselves. I was so impressed! I absolutely love the King Proteas they incorporated. What a beautiful Australian bloom.
I think more brides should use native Australian flowers. They are so unique!
Frances was looking gorgeous with her romantic curls and the perfect Johanna Johnson hair accessory.
Frances wore her grandmother’s watch as a very special “something old”. What a beautiful antique.
I love it when we get to see our couple’s wedding invitations!
Frances finally got to see her look and she loved it!
Frances’s mother had been hiding away and was really taken by her beautiful daughter when she saw her all dolled up. What a sweet moment!
Frances seemed to share a special bond with her sister, giving her the role of her sole attendant in the bridal party.
Oh my gosh. I am so in love with this gown! It seemed so perfect for Frances.
The bridesmaid’s gown that Frances selected was the perfect complimentary colour, and looked beautiful on her sister!
You looked absolutely stunning, Frances! Gorgeous, gorgeous.
It had been quite a rainy morning, and so the ceremony which was originally scheduled to take place on Rocky Point Island was moved to the rotunda. But the weather quickly changed in our favour…
Gordon looked so happy and excited to see his beautiful bride.
Alison Dempster officiated the ceremony just beautifully. The sun began to peak out from behind the clouds, creating the perfect warm, dreamy light.
Frances and Gordon’s parents looked very proud!
Frances and Gordon recited their touching vows through smiles and tears.
What perfect light. Gorgeous!
I love this! Congratulations, Frances and Gordon!
