A chance meeting on the beach eventually gave way to a romantic proposal accompanied by flowers and candles in beautiful Byron Bay.
Dreamy Wedding Day Details
“I’m a wedding planner myself, so I had a pretty good vision for what I wanted in terms of look and style,” reveals Lara. “Our venue, Deux Belettes in Byron Bay, felt like a fairytale villa somewhere in Provence, so we used this as inspiration to create an elegant, romantic and rustic style wedding.”
The bride wore an exquisite hand-beaded gown by Israeli designer Alon Livné. “I spent a couple of months in Israel in the time leading up to our wedding, so was fortunate to have my gown custom made in Tel Aviv by the designer.” Carrying a bouquet of her favourite blooms, David Austin roses and peonies, Lara was a vision. “The ceremony was so magical and very special for us,” she notes. The couple worked with Philip Carr & Associates to create a romantic, French vibe. An eclectic mix of upholstered lounge furniture, white benches and bistro chairs created the setting, with ivy added to create an organic, timeworn vibe.
Crystal chandeliers hung from the huge tree and a dripping garland of white flowers seemed to spring forth from the tree’s trunk. “Our Chuppah was draped with soft, white muslin and the poles were wrapped in ivy,” she explains.
Once wed, the couple joined their guests for a lavish reception in a marquee on the grounds of Deux Belettes. White washed flooring, bleached hessian tablecloths and plenty of blooms and candles in soft, neutral tones created an atmosphere simply perfect for romance.
