Today on the blog we are sharing the distinctive wedding of Romi and Jason, held at Atlantic in Melbourne.
Romi spent months before her wedding looking at photos from opulent weddings around the world for inspiration. “I wanted our wedding to be romantic and modern, therefore our décor combined rich colours including pink, red and magenta.” During their traditional Jewish ceremony, high tea was served to guests with a combination of sweet and savoury delights.
Their bridal party consisted of 7 groomsmen, 6 bridesmaids and 5 flowergirls, with the bridesmaids wearing rose coloured gowns with rose-gold tinted beading and a peplum design to match the style of Romi’s dress.
“Everybody who worked towards our wedding created a wonderland. It was as though Jason and I were in another world. Never in my wildest dreams, and I have wild dreams, did I imagine the day as it was. Everything exceeded my expectations.”

Today on the blog we are sharing the luxe Bali wedding of high school sweethearts, Emma and Brady. “We chose our wedding venue because of the breathtaking view of the ocean from the cliff edge. Jennifer Hawkins hadn’t got married there yet!” Emma laughed.
Their wedding day had a green and blush pink colour scheme that was complemented with a timber aesthetic. “We were married beneath a canopy of roses and silver suede and, around us, rose pomanders and lanterns hung from the trees.”

The new CHANEL film – celebrating the iconic fragrance CHANEL No°5 - written and directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Gisele Bundchen, has been unveiled! Entitled ‘The One That I Want’ the film depicts the No°5 woman as one who listens to her heart. She is a woman who knows exactly who she is, and is free to make her own choices and listen to her desires.
CHANEL No°5 is the worlds most famous fragrance, and was created in 1921 when Coco Chanel asked the great perfumer, Ernest Beaux, to create a fragrance that reflected her vision of modern femininity. No°5 was her lucky number and it was the fifth submission presented to Mademoiselle Chanel, thus a legend was born with the name; CHANEL No°5.
Today on the blog we are very excited to share the super stylish wedding of Nadia Coppolino and Jimmy Bartel. A relaxed resort-style getaway experience was created for the couples wedding day, on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula.
“In year 10 at high school, I had my debutante ball and I firmly told mum and dad that it would be the only time they saw me in a white wedding style dress so they had better remember it. This all changed when I met Jim,” said Nadia.

Today on the blog we are sharing the ‘Country Chic’ wedding of Hamish Esplin and Peta Hird. Their Hunter Valley wedding had a navy, yellow and white colour scheme, and their romantic vision was brought to life with the creative genius of Peta’s friend from school Brooke Allott, owner of event planning and styling company Something White.
Brooke worked with Peta and Hamish to develop a mood board with a realistic timeline, and once the key styling elements were finalised, the couple entrusted her with the creative side.
“We really wanted to have some surprises on the day, and one of the highlights was discovering all the styling elements throughout the wedding,” Peta said.

Today on the blog we are sharing the 1950s Manhattan style wedding of Olivia and Gerard. On the theme and styling of their wedding day Olivia said, “I love organising events and social functions so I was so excited to personally influence the styling and design of the wedding. With the help of Ed Dixon Food Design I was able to turn my inspiration into a reality. Our reception felt like an enchanted garden. Gold, green and white were the focus of our colour palatte, and our dining space was made to feel warm and cosy with lush green table settings and moss running through the arrangements.

We love a red carpet here in the Real Weddings office, and last night’s AFL Brownlow Medal held at Melbourne’s Crown Towers didn’t disappoint.
There were plenty of bridal inspired looks, with white, neutral and pastel shades in abundance with soft lace and sheer fabric overlays making a big impact.
Two of our favourite ‘real weddings’ brides – Rebecca Judd and Nadia Bartel – were both visions in white, pictured below with their handsome husbands.

Today on the blog we are sharing the elegant black tie wedding of Meaghan and Tyson, at Stones of the Yarra Valley, in Coldstream, Victoria.
Originally the couple started exploring industrial spaces for their wedding, but deep down they were set on Stones of the Yarra Valley as a venue. “We had a dilemma. We’d been to a family friend’s wedding there years before and had really fallen in love, but wanted to be different,” Meaghan said. It wasn’t until she met her gown designer that Meaghan was convinced about the venue. Well regarded for her uncanny ability to understand exactly what brides wanted, Jane Hill assured Meaghan that Stones was where they needed to be. “I was rambling on about where we should have our wedding while Jane was sketching away. She looked up and said, ‘You’re a Stones girl’. After that the decision was made and the date locked in!” Meaghan said.

Set against the rustic look and feel of the Stones property and interior, Meaghan and Tyson wanted to create a classic look for their wedding with a white and green theme and an elegant black tie dress code.
The flowers and table settings were soft and romantic, with tall glowing candles scattered amongst collections of white David Austin roses, peonies, and hydrangeas.
One of the main features was a suspended flower ‘halo’ situated above the bridal table.
