Lucy & Ross's Beachside Wedding

A beach side wedding with a classic and formal twist, this wedding has bursts of color combined with crisp black and white. We love a good proposal story and Ross doesn't disappoint.

"After being in Australia almost one year to the day, Ross surprised me with a weekend away in Wye River, where he proposed. He took me to the most amazing cliff side apartment and told me to get ready for dinner out. When I came out from the bathroom ready to go, he had rose petals and tealight candles stretched out across the deck, with a small table for two and his laptop. We sat down and the computer came to life with a complete website that documented our relationship. It captured all the nitty gritty details including how we met, photos from our travels, our favourite songs, notes we'd written to each other etc. We scrolled through the website and at the bottom, was a YouTube video he'd created asking our friends from around the world if they agreed we were meant to be together. The video finished with him on one knee and me in tears (happy for course)."

"We had a meeting with Andrea Gorrie Bridal Couturier and loved being able to workshop designs, share examples of clippings I'd taken from mags and play around with fabrics and samples. Instantly, I knew I wanted a dress made just for me. In between committing to my dressmaker and the wedding, I loved all the appointments and fuss around the construction of the gown. It was a great Saturday expedition with my bridesmaids and it was really exciting to be able to see the design come together."

Lucy hadn't planned on going with white bridesmaids, but fell in love with the Camilla and Marc design and lace fabric. The white dresses were lifted with gorgeous bright flowers and the girls chose their own shoes and hair.

Lucy and Ross will be putting the money from the sale of her Andrea Gorrie wedding dress towards the honeymoon that they are planning on taking at the end of the year.

There is a great feature to chat with the person before purchasing. I really like the notes about scams and paying with PayPal, and felt very confident with the purchase. To improve, I would like to see a better filter for the names of dresses. I was looking for a specific dress from a specific brand, and it was easy to search by brand, but not by the name of the dress. I also would like to see more filters for size, with the measurements of the dress instead of just the size. Also, height is very important for dresses and it is impossible to tell the height from the description currently.
