Bonnie and Paul

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Weddings,



I am so excited to finally be able to share with you the beautiful Sydney wedding of Bonnie and Paul. Not only is the wedding a feast for the eyes, but it also happens to be the wedding of lovely Australian wedding blogger Amour Amour.

Bonnie says “We met at work- we sat right next to each other!!

I actually had a boyfriend at the time and Paul was just a friend however there was something there that we didn’t initially see as people used to tell me that we would get married one day- which I obviously thought was bizarre at the time! Then one day I turned to my flatmate and asked her if she thought I liked Paul… she burst out laughing and just yelled “YES!!”  In fact, her sister had said that we were like two people in a movie that didn’t know we were in love but everyone else knew. And the rest I suppose is history!!”

Bonnie and Paul wanted an elegant feel with a hint of formal glamour on their wedding day. A classic colour palette of creams with dusty neutrals and bronze set the tone of the day.

Today’s photos are by SugarLove Weddings.

The night before the wedding, Bonnie and her bridesmaids spent the night in a hotel suite with champagne, spa baths and beautiful candles. Paul had a huge bunch of flowers delivered the morning of the wedding  with a note saying “I can’t wait till you walk down the aisle and I spend the rest of my life with you”.

Angels Dreaming created bouquets of roses.

Bonnie wore a Pallas Couture gown. Pallas even held back their new ad campaign featuring the gown until Bonnie’s wedding was over. Bonnie’s wedding day look was created by Gillian Adams Salon & Spa.

Bonnie walked down the aisle with her brother Alexander to “Into My Arms” by Nick Cave, which suited her wish for something a little nontraditional. The couple married in St Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Lavender Bay. Bonnie is not a practicing Catholic but wanted to marry in a church while Paul is agnostic and was happy with the traditional feel.


Paul is well known for being loud amongst friends, so when the priest asked him to speak up during his vows, it sent Bonnie into fits of laughter. The church was decorated by Bonnie’s mother and her fiancé and featured big urns filled with roses and lilies.

    […] Bonnie and Paul’s Wedding I’m only slightly cheating by putting Bonnie’s bouquet up first – but you see Bonnie, to me, had the epitome of a classic, elegant wedding. Her bouquet was classic – white roses. But ever so stylish with the long green stems and satin binding. It took classic to modern and told the story of Bonnie and Paul’s style.
