Tessa and Damien's love story unfolded akin to a flawless romance movie. Crossing paths many years ago, starting as mere acquaintances, not knowing that this fortuitous encounter would pave the way for a journey filled with unconditional support, blossoming friendship, and ultimately, a loveΒ that would transcend all expectations.

Damien, being the thoughtful soul he is, curated a weekend getaway tailored to his passions. From indulging in their first 18 holes of golf at Maleny Golf Course to savouring gluten-free beer at a charming German restaurant with a picturesque view, every moment was filled with magic. As the sun rose over Montville's horizon, Damien's heartfelt proposal at Gerrard Lookout marked the pinnacle of an unforgettable weekend, sealing their love in the most enchanting way possible.Β

To Tessa and Damien, marriage is more than just a union; it's a commitment to growing together, striving to be the best versions of themselves both individually and as a couple. It's about embracing life's adventures hand in hand, knowing that with each other, they can conquer anything.Β

After much deliberation, Tessa and Damien found themselves drawn to the serene beauty of Walkabout Creek. Its tranquil surroundings provided the ideal backdrop for their special day, allowing them to feel completely immersed in the moment as they exchanged vows surrounded by loved ones.

Having their family present on the big day meant the world to Tessa and Damien. Their love and support added an extra layer of warmth and joy to the celebration, making every moment even more special.Β

Navigating the world of wedding gowns was initially overwhelming until Tessa met Vanessa. With her guidance, Tessa found a gown that not only matched her vision but also felt like an extension of herself – complete with pockets and Italian lace, just as she had dreamed.Β

Collaborating on every aspect of the wedding, including attire, allowed Tessa and Damien to ensure that their styles complemented each other perfectly. Damien's choice, although made Tessa initially uncertain, proved to be a perfect fit and made him look dashing on their special day.Β Β

The best part of Tessa’s bridal shopping experience was the overwhelming sense of empowerment and love that surrounded her. Knowing that she could design a dress uniquely tailored for herself filled her with excitement and joy.

Β The most important thing for Tessa and Damien on their wedding day was being able to share this moment with their children and loved ones. They wanted nothing more than for the celebration to be filled with love, laughter, and joy – and were thrilled to say that they achieved just that.

Incorporating mementos of Tessa and Damien’s fathers into the attire allowed them to carry their memory with them, even though they couldn't be there in person. It was a small touch that held immense meaning for the both of them. Damien had a picture of his dad on a pin inside of his jacket and Tessa had a picture attached to her bouquet.Β

The most helpful piece of advice Tessa and Damien received during the planning process was to remember that this day is about them and their love for each other – and to prioritise what truly matters to them above all else.Β

Tessa’s advice to future brides is simple: Be open to designing your own gown, embrace non-traditional wedding elements, and make your celebration a reflection of your unique love story. β€œWe didn’t have a cake; we had a complete chocolate smash cake filled with his and her lollies that were served with our favourite ice cream for dessert. We didn’t do a bouquet or garter toss. We opted to have the first verse and chorus as our first dance we then had our family join for the next verse and finally we had our guests join us for the last chorus and verse”.

Tessa and Damien’s experience with When Freddie met Lilly was nothing short of magical. Ness's expertise and personalised approach made Tessa feel like royalty, and she couldn't be more grateful for her guidance in finding the perfect dress.Β

For the bridal party, they opted for a timeless palette of neutrals, creams, and whites. Their children served as the bridal party, adding a touch of innocence and joy to the celebration. And for a pop of colour, the guests were Tessa and Damien’s "something blue," resulting in stunning photos that captured the essence of their love.Β

The florals were a reflection of the natural beauty surrounding the venue. With white florals, roses, and baby's breath accented by touches of blue in the boys' boutonnieres, the floral arrangements added a touch of romance and elegance to our celebration.
