Our Wedding - The Dress

This is the first in a series of blog posts about our wedding. A few things made our wedding a little different and I'd love to share some of the behind the scenes. To begin with, I'll start with some photos with a particular focus on 'the dress'. Designed by Wendy Makin, I first saw 'Daphne' at the Queensland Brides Design Awards and knew it was perfect for me. Photos in this post are by Blue Tulip Imaging.

More to come!


  1. Fantastic!! I was wondering if we would get to see anything to do with the wedding! The dress is amazing, so unique :)

    Also, the photos are awesome.

  2. What a stunning dress ... and such beautiful wedding photos. You were a gorgeous bride. x

  3. Don't suppose you were planning to sell Daphne? She's so gorgeous!!! I'm on the hunt for a pre loved one but it seems to be the inpossible task haha

    1. Sorry Chenisse, I originally considered shortening it but couldn't do that to it just yet. I've had it dry cleaned and it's in a box but I know I will get it out again one day.
      Wendy Makin does have seconds sales on occasion but usually on the ready-to-wear range, when I thought Daphne might be out of my timeline my alternative plan was to buy a silk dress and get my grandmother to paint it? Could be something to consider if you're looking for a more budget option.
      Alternatively, though it was twice my original dress budget I've never regretted spending that much on it. It made the whole day and set the theme, I scrimped on other things instead.
