We were extremely excited to receive Julie’s wedding day photos. She was a such a delightful and elegant client we just had to share her day and immaculate style with you. She’s an inspiration to all. Julie envisioned a sophisticated and elegant black tie event to be held at the beautiful Gibraltar Hotel in Bowral. “The surrounds were amazingly beautiful and tranquil with visually spectacular views of the lake and golf course.” says Julie.
Julie describes planning her wedding as an incredible yet exhausting experience. She found The Future Mrs to be extremely professional, “TFM were organised and an excellent go between Michelle and myself. All my queries were promptly answered.”
She was nervous about what to do with her hair but after a trial with local TFM H&M artist Michelle Mae, Julie felt confident her look would be incredible on the day.
Julie explains “I had images to show Michelle but I still wasn’t sure. Michelle immediately put me at ease and actively listened to my concerns and allowed me to talk through the pros and cons. She suggested we try a down then an up style to help me decide. As soon as Michelle began working her magic I was sold on the down style. I left my trial feeling wonderful and very confident.” Julie goes on to sing Michelle’s praises on the wedding day, “she was absolutely amazing creating individual looks for 8 of us ranging from my granddaughters, my daughters, bridesmaids and I. She is an incredible talent and had the most beautiful manner with everyone.”
We couldn’t agree more that Michelle nailed Julie’s desire for a contemporary take on a vintage wave, which complemented her dress by Diane Lewis Couture perfectly.
“I wanted my gown to look elegant and stylish but be fashion forward and emulate sophistication and grace befitting an older woman. NO mother of the bride look fading into the background for me!” laughs Julie. “Diane's attention to detail and her commitment to ensure the fit and finish of each garment was perfect. We felt like we had stepped out a page from a Vogue magazine.”
Julie doesn’t like to sound corny but says a highlight from the day was sharing and witnessing so much love and happiness with all her family and friends. She says to start planning your wedding early, believe in your dream and surround yourself with a team that make you feel special. Her final piece of advice for couples is “as long as you have each other nothing else truly matters!” We couldn’t agree more.
