After 10 years together, Caitlyn and Jason’s gorgeous wedding was just another perfect milestone for this couple. Caitlyn describes the ceremony as her favourite part of the day, with ‘Hard to Concentrate’ by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers being sung acoustically in the background, and personal vows exchanged, it was light-hearted and full of laughs and happy tears.
On the proposal
Jason proposed to Caitlyn at home one night after work, Caitlyn opened the front door and Jason was behind the door all dressed up and down on one knee. The funny part of the story is that Jason had planned to propose the week before, but Caitlyn decided to go shopping after work with her sister and forgot to tell Jason. “He made me wait 9 years, I made him wait a week.”
On the venue
Caitlyn and Jason’s wedding was held at the amazing Black Brewing Co, with their ceremony held on a little private island, the cocktail hour in the big beer garden and their reception in the hall which overlooks the lake. “It was a classy venue with a relaxed and fun atmosphere – perfect!”
All the styling details
The wedding was cocktail style and so the inspiration was to keep everything very minimalistic. The low hanging Festoon lighting lit the hall which held a high table (for all the cheese), and scattered wine barrels decorated with native and garden flowers.
A friend recommended that Caitlyn look in Karen Willis Holmes whilst dress hunting and lucky she did because the Emmeline gown from our Bespoke Collection, which she purchased at our Perth boutique, was a perfect match for her.
“Looking back on photos I couldn’t have imagined a better dress to suit me or our wedding day. It matched the venue, the atmosphere and all the happy vibes.”
Caitlyn’s lace and georgette gown was perfectly paired with a veil from Adore Bridal Alterations and a simple pair of pearl earrings from Grace Loves Lace.
Gown hunting tips
“Get the dress that makes you not want to leave without it. The one that you can’t take your mind off. The one that fits your wedding day.”
What does love mean to you?
“When the things that make you crazy coincide with the reasons you love someone, you know you’ve found the one. I ‘hate’ that Jason makes me laugh when I am mad at him, but I love that he can always make me smile.”
