A Disney Wedding for a Disney Girl!
Beautiful Mel has loved all things Disney since she was a little girl so it was natural that she would wish to include Disney readings in her wedding to Kyle! And with all the amazing Disney romances to choose from there was plenty on offer. I aim to create a wedding that reflects you and your dreams so of course I was on board straight away. More on that later…
At the rehearsal all the bridal party were present, along with Photography by Sarah J and Tracey from the staff of the Grounds of Ravenswood Homestead. Having everyone together meant that we could have a really good discussion about the logistics of the day- where the ceremony would be, entrances and exits, timing, requirements etc. It was good to have a frank discussion and answer each other’s questions so everyone knew what was happening!
Then came our practice time! As I stood chatting to Kyle it came up in conversation that I had known Melanie’s family 30 years- before she was even born! How amazing that I was now able to be part of such a special day.
We practiced the entrance of the bride and bridesmaids, where to stand, the outline of the ceremony, etc. We can’t practice the legal vows but we did do a pretend exhange of rings and signing. Always good for the couple to know where to go and what to do! Saves a lot of stress!!!
The Big Day...
Mel’s and her girls began their preparations early in the day with hair and makeup by Jess from Be Beautiful by Jess.
The bride tribe wore blush dresses and the groomsmen wore tan chinos and white shirts. Melanie looked an absolute Disney Princess in her gown from Love Bridal. Proud Dad Tyrone escorted her down the aisle while her emotional mum Raewyn, watched from the front row.
Melanie’s Prince, Kyle, waited under the arch for Melanie to join him. It was decorated with florals including roses and the trendy pampas grass with their feathery goodness. These were the work of the talented Ash from Style by Ashleigh K. Her team also decorated the reception area as well.
A highlight of the day was the previously mentioned Disney theme. Mel had chosen some unusual but very apt readings and excerpts from her favourite movies,
One example was the following quote from the story of Pocahontas:
Groom and Bride, Your two hopeful hearts, once worlds apart;
Together there is no end to what your dreams can start.
Like two eagles soar as one, upon the river of the wind
With the promise of forever, you will take the past and learn to begin.
May your lives together be filled with love and laughter, and may you live happily ever after! ..(Pocahontas)
What a lovely way to personalise your ceremony by choosing the ideas that are close to your heart!
I hope you and your lovely man enjoyed your ceremony, my Disney Princess. xxx
