I was thrilled when the wonderful Deep Grey Photography sent me this wedding, the couple radiate happiness and their wedding makes you want to click your fingers and be there with them joining in the fun.
Mike and Tara's journey to their wedding day started like a fairytale! Tara arrived home to a trail of candles leading up to her room and a note on her bed with instructions to meet her limo outside at 7pm. Tara's limo arrived and whisked her off to her waiting prince wearing a suit and holding red roses. He led her to a clearing filled with candles and asked her to be his wife. Tara remembers Mike had the engagement ring "just floating around in his pocket all night!"
After an obvious 'yes!' and no doubt some tears of joy and excitement, Mike took his new fiancé to the Chocolate Boutique for dessert and celebrations with their dearest friends.
With a proposal like this - their wedding had to be positively dreamy... They organised their wedding in sunny Fiji!
Their wedding was a mix of tropical beach and DIY, but most of all relaxed and fun. "We were married in Fiji so it was hard to avoid the whole 'beach wedding' thing but I also tried to incorporate as many fun DIY ideas where I could to make it more our own" says Tara.
"My dress was made by a dressmaker who is also a friend of mine. Stephanie lives eight hours away from me (by car) so there were many trips back and forth for dress fittings to make sure it was perfect... We went with a strapless, sweetheart neckline dress in ivory chiffon" says Tara. Her beautiful bodice was woven in a criss-cross style and was finished with a pale pink ribbon belt with handmade fabric flowers.
What a superb wedding and wonderful inspiration to leave you with before the weekend hits.
Venue: The Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa.
"We were lucky enough to spend an entire week here and it was bliss. The wedding planner at the Intercontinental Fiji was so accommodating and made sure everything was perfect for our day, and the staff in the spa looked after us fabulously and did a great job making us look pretty."
