About the Couple

Megan & Joe met each other at work and their friendship at work soon turned out to be something more. Joe proposed to Megan on a Christmas morning in Washington Park in New York City, which was where they had been living for the past year. When asked what Megan likes most about Joe, she said that it was his sense of humour.

The boldness of the sculpture and the definitive lines, is enough to create a statement within each design. The balance of both interest and simplicity, marrying in harmony. – Georgia Young Couture”

Summer Gown from Georgia Young Couture

Back in New York City, Megan went to many bridal boutiques and tried on many gowns but nothing seemed to be a good fit. She booked a few more appointments when her mother and bridesmaids visited her in NYC and that was how they ended up in Georgia Young Couture’s boutique. The good thing about Georgia Young is that there is a wide range of options to choose from in one collection. After asking for help from the designer herself, Megan decided on the Summer gown from the Marmalade collection.

This collection by Georgia Young is the reinvention of structural simplicity. The Summer gown is an elegant off-shoulder mermaid gown that shows off Megan’s slender figure. The clean lines of the gown also paired well with a chapel length tulle veil. Classy and elegant are the best words to describe this beautiful gown!

About the Wedding

The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Orchard Estate in Byron. A working macadamia nut farm situated in the rolling hills of the Byron Bay hinterland, Orchard Estate looks over the beautiful Nightcap mountain range. Megan & Joe decided to have their reception in the barn after reading it on different blogs and they were mesmerized by the stunning view the venue provided. It was also a place that could be styled from scratch to match their wedding theme. With floral decorations done by The French Petal, the venue looked fresh and stylish – special mention goes to the hanging floral installation that we fell in love with immediately!
