A contemporary Macedonian celebration, with a beautiful grey and gold wedding scheme. Bride Natasha shares the details of her gorgeous day…
How did you and your partner meet?
We met through mutual friends whilst attending a music festival on the Gold Coast.
How did Jason propose?
Jase surprised me when I arrived home from a week long work trip. He surprised me with flowers and made the room look amazing. He prepared a will you marry me tick box (I had told him how cute I thought it was in school when boys would pass around notes to ask a girl out and include a tick box at the bottom), so he made sure I got to tick yes for the last time!
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it:
I loved so many gowns but I was forever drawn to anything with a hint of colour outside the usually white and ivory. The lace was intricate and detailed and the exposed boning and buttons were perfection.
Did you do a ‘first look’ before the ceremony?
No, we had so much going on bringing together a traditional wedding with Macedonian cultural wedding. Plus, I wanted Jase to see me for the first time walking down the aisle.
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
I wanted a soft romantic style with punches of glam. Charlie our stylist made this happen combining grey and gold to perfection.
How did you come to choose the location and venue?
Coming from a big family I have been to so many weddings in Brisbane and Jase and I wanted ours to be different. So, we chose a location that not only suited our style but was one that we hadn’t been to before.
Can you describe what type of ceremony you had?
We had a traditional ceremony and Macedonian church ceremony.
Describe the cake:
The wedding cake was a simple four-tiered cake with brushed gold accents and two large white magnolia-style flowers. We had two different flavours – a white chocolate caramel tier and an almond & coconut mud, which we served the following day at my parent’s place.
What flowers did you use in the bouquet and at the venue?
Cream blooms mixed with abundant greenery
How did you choose your table décor?
Grey and gold theme – Charlie went to great lengths to source the table cloths in a beautiful grey that matched the bridesmaids’ dresses.
What were your favorite moments from the day?
The super excited feeling of getting ready with my girls and my mum in the morning, reading a letter from Jase in the morning, seeing him as I walked down the aisle and of course partying the night away.
Name your wedding soundtrack:
Isle entrance was Angels by The XX, and our first dance was XO by John Mayer (Beyonce cover).
Where did you go on honeymoon?
Europe- Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Florence & Berlin
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Start planning early!
If you could sum up your wedding in one sentence, how would you describe it?
Perfect would do it again in a heartbeat!!
