Lauren and Jeff’s Coogee Wedding

Lauren and Jeff

There is nothing quite like the beaches of Sydney and today’s wedding encapsulates that wonderful relaxed and sunshiney vibe the area has.

Lauren recalls how she met her now husband Jeff. “We started out as friends. We were house mates in a house share. Jeff moved out then a year later we reunited at a party and have been together ever since.”

Photos today are by Nerida McMurray Photography. Nerida always captures weddings with a clean, crispness to them – the moments that were there to be taken without any fuss, just a lot of memories.

Lauren wore a gorgeous strapless gown from Amanda Garrett while her bridesmaid chose her gown from Manning Cartell.

Lauren and Jeff held their ceremony at Dunnigham Reserve on the cliff top at Coogee Beach. The processional was “Kissing You” by Des’ree.

Melissa Moule at Budding Brides ([email protected]) styled the classic bouquets of flowers while Divine Events planned the wedding day.

Lauren and Jeff celebrated with guests at Wylies Baths in Coogee. Lauren remarks “The view at Wylie’s Baths was breath taking”. Melissa Clack ([email protected]) created the stationery for the day.

Lauren says “Our wedding day was magical. To have all of our family and friends together, meant the world to us.”

Dancing on the balmy evening to The Boogaloo Crew from the Groove Academy was the perfect end to the wedding of Lauren and Jeff. “The Boogaloo Crew performed on the open air deck and had the entire wedding up dancing.”

The romantic first dance was to a classic ‘Let’s Stay Together’ by Al Green.

Congratulations Lauren and Jeff! Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us on Polka Dot Bride! Thank you also to Nerida McMurray Photography for sharing today’s images!

    I am absolutely in love with her dress. Ironically the designer is Amanda Garrett as well haha
    I just can’t seem to figure out the name of the dress.

    Lovely place to have a wedding over Coogee Beach! Love the colors of the benches and those iconic pavilions.
