Beautiful Wedding under the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Chanelle and James sat beside each other in primary school so when they met years later at schoolies on the Gold Coast, James recognised her name and they got chatting! It wasn’t long before they were an item and today we are delighted to be sharing their incredible wedding that took place right under the Sydney Harbour bridge. How’s that for an awesome location!

“James proposed to me in Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. The proposal had taken months of planning! After we had booked our stay at the Excellence Playa Mujures, James secretly called the hotel to arrange an upgrade. He requested that they pretend that the upgrade and a private yacht trip were complementary as it was our anniversary when we were staying there. This was all to make sure that I didn’t suspect why James was spoiling me so much! When the Captain stopped the yacht near a private beach, James went down on one knee on the bow of the boat and asked me to marry him with a stunning, personally designed diamond ring from Fairfax & Roberts. Of course, I said yes,” explained Chanelle.

Chanelle and James began planning their Aussie autumn wedding with the focus on romance, love and family. “The reception was designed with the theme of roses, silver and crystal in mind. I was lucky enough to have my dream come true with an abundance of draping roses around the room in the softest pinks and whites. The reception venue was perfect because it has the most amazing tea light chandelier hanging from the ceiling, which gives the venue a magical and starry atmosphere,” she said.

Chanelle’s wedding gown was as dreamy as the venue. She wore an ivory couture gown of intricate French lace with a four meter lace veil. Her bridal party included eight cousins aged between 2 and 7 years – six flower girls in couture tulle gowns by Olivia Kate Couture and two page boys in mini dinner suits from Ferrari Formal!
