JES­SICA & MICHELLE

Sugar, spice and ev­ery­thing nice made this day per­fectly sweet

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Bride -

Dough­nuts, lolly bags and a pas­tel colour pal­ette were the cor­ner­stones of this lovely cer­e­mony for pho­tog­ra­pher Jes­sica Yates, 25, and project man­ager Michelle Reid, 28.

DATE: Novem­ber 16, 2017

GUESTS: 110

THE DRESSES: Jess: I had my dress made by a dress­maker. I love styles like Grace Loves Lace but wanted to de­sign my own. Michelle: I tried on lots of dresses at wed­ding dress shops but then my mum found the per­fect one on eBay! I felt like a boho princess.

VENUE: The River­stone Es­tate in the Yarra Val­ley in Vic­to­ria. Breath­tak­ing views, lovely staff, fes­toon lights ev­ery­where...

CAKE: Our cake was made by our mums. We wanted a dough­nut cake, but also an ac­tual cake to cut. It was Krispy Kremes with a mud cake on top, cov­ered in mac­arons. FIRST DANCE SONG: Latch by Sam Smith

BRIDES­MAIDS: We had five brides­maids and two brides­men and their out­fits were bought sep­a­rately as we wanted them all to be dif­fer­ent and com­fort­able. We loved the look of dif­fer­ent styles in the same colour pal­ette.

THE VIBE: We went for boho, with a teepee ar­bour, hand­made signs and f low­ers. Our favours had bot­tle open­ers from Etsy, lolly bags and hand­made hang­over kits.

WE STUM­BLED ON THE VENUE AND FELL IN LOVE WITH IT

EVEN OUR SCENT (FLORA BY GUCCI) WAS FLO­RAL

JESS MADE ALL THE BOU­QUETS WITH FAKE FLOW­ERS

THE SIG­NAGE WAS ALL HAND­MADE
