A “little bit sexy and bold” is this bride’s style, and she made sure it shone through on her wedding day.
Brooke, 29, married Dave, 28, on October 12, 2018 at their romantic garden wedding at Sol Gardens, Currumbin Valley. “It was very important to me to make our wedding a little different to others I had seen while bringing to life my favourite colours,” the bride explains. “That’s why I went for the bold red bridesmaid dresses and flowers instead of the on-trend burgundy. It was also the reason for our navy and gold cake, and U-shaped tables: breaking away from the long-table trend.”
Treating their guests was a priority for the couple, and part of that was creating thoughtful favours. “New Orleans was one of our fave holiday spots so we did New Orleans hot sauce for men,” says the bride. “And, handmade by me, navy blue candles for the girls all with hand-painted name tags doubling as place cards.”
An extra special surprise was espresso martins made from an Aldi pod machine! “Everyone loved them and couldn’t believe it,” laughs Brooke.

“Budget was key to us,” explains Brooke. “Dave’s an accountant and I’m a marketing manager so we’re both used to that.”
“Dave loves horses so I surprised him for our photos,” smiles the bride.
