I love featuring weddings in the UK, but I also like blogging about international weddings. Fallyn and Grant’s Gatsby style wedding with soft pinks and accents of gold took place at Maleny Manor in Queensland.
Fallyn first met Grant at high school. ‘I was new to town and we were introduced through my family,’ says Fallyn. ‘It was love at first sight, quite cute really.’ Grant proposed to Fallyn when they were sailing on a private gondola in the Gold Coast Qld. Grant proposed after dinner with champagne and a dozen red roses.
When it came to the style of her big day, Fallyn knew she wanted a classic old world vintage and Gatsby style wedding. I had to be surrounded by flowers, I wanted soft pinks, lavenders and whites with accents of gold,’ says Fallyn. ‘Love Bird Weddings and Mondo Flowers worked together perfectly in creating a timeless elegance that is captured beautifully in the photographs. I initially had my heart set on peonies but as it turns out, they were out of season for my wedding! However, my florist had organised French peonies to be imported from Paris as a special surprise on my wedding day!’
To avoid ruining her Louboutin shoes, Fallyn changed into red Wellington boots for some of the photographs!
According to Fally, there were so many special moments to her Gatsby style wedding. ‘The quiet moments with my family and friends, getting ready, and my husband I standing at the altar in a bubble of love,’ says Fally.
One thing that really stood out from the couple’s Gatsby style wedding day is that they worked with a an organisation called Raptor Vision based who are an animal rescue group ‘The guys behind this are retired Australia Zoo Raptor trainers who rescue and care for local birds,’ says Fallyn. ‘To fund the cost of caring of the animals, they trained one of their owls to deliver wedding bands. Luna, the Owl, surprised our guests as our ring bearer for the ceremony.
