As a sneak peek to Jessica and Lance’s wedding which we will see on Friday, we have this post, which is written by Samara-Jaye Weston, one of Jessica’s bridesmaids. Jessica’s wedding photography is absolutely amazing so we thought we’d start with this teaser … just to whet the appetite. The gorgeous photography is by Todd and Alyda for Todd Hunter McGaw Photography.

Jessica is my best friend and I’ve known her over a decade now. In the time I’ve known her she has always had a lot of passion, drive and ambition, this most definitely reflected on her wedding. I was one of the bridesmaids for Jessica along with Shannon Oostenbroek. Rachel Oostenbroek was the junior bridesmaid, Karla Richardson was the flower girl and Heidi Gilroy was the maid of honour.

Jessica dreamed of the fairytale wedding and that’s exactly what she got! The wedding was held at Maleny Manor, which is in Landsborough, Maleny. The atmosphere on the day was indescribable. Although it was raining on the day when the bridal party arrived to walk down the aisle, the view was nonetheless amazing. The ceremony was a perfect picture of mist over the mountains in the background and unending surroundings of wine vineyards.

All the extensive preparation and hard work that Jessica and Lance put into their wedding, became  worth it. The detail throughout the day was flawless, from the flowers to the hair and make-up to the cake and reception.

The day was breathtaking and enchanting; Jessica’s fairytale of the perfect wedding came to life. It was simply a masterpiece.

The photography is by Todd and Alyda for Todd Hunter McGaw Photography.

Samara-Jaye says this about the bride Jessica: “She is a healthy perfectionist that finds beauty in everything around her. She has a fine taste and is very passionate about having the ’perfect’ wedding. Her life is a fairytale come true and her wedding will most definitely portray that”.

Ms Gingham says: “This is a great preview post. I love how Samara-Jaye has taken the time to celebrate her Best Friend’s Wedding and show it off to the whole world! I can’t wait to see more!”

    My daughters wedding day, she looked amazing, her smile could light a room, he beauty shone like the stars and her day was coming together just the way she had dreamed. I watched her take in every precious moment of each and every little detail that was presented before her. My heart couldn’t of been happier or prouder than that moment seeing my beautiful daughter be ready to walk down the isle and wed her wonderful husband to be “her soul mate”. Their day was full of all the things that truly mattered surrounded by beauty, the Love of family and the Love of their dearest friends. A blessed and bright future is now before them to share together and build on their dreams to give hope for each tomorrow that Happiness will always prevail and the fairy tale will never end.
