TARA + MITCHELL

Can­dles, cas­cad­ing blooms and even a Kimye-style flower wall made this stylish big day a stand­out af­fair

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - JUST MARRIED -

Tara be­gan the morn­ing of her wed­ding get­ting ready at her fam­ily home, just as her mum had done for her own wed­ding 40 years be­fore! Once she’d put on her dress, the ex­cite­ment kicked in and she was ready to walk down the aisle. Af­ter ty­ing the knot, it was then on to the re­cep­tion. Filled with can­dles, hang­ing blooms and a flower wall, the venue was breath­tak­ing. Groom Mitchell gave a touch­ing, emo­tional speech (the only one of the night) and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Then, af­ter the for­mal­i­ties, the bride slipped into a sec­ond dress and got the party started in the stun­ning har­bour­side lo­ca­tion.
