After being set up by mutual friends – Nikki and Tom have now been together for over a decade, however, the years have only made them stronger. Their wedding was the perfect reflection of their relationship as a couple – fun and carefree.
Tom and Nikki met 10 years ago playing touch football in Brisbane, Australia. The pair had mutual school friends who had set up a social team and the rest is history. Tom proposed to Nikki whilst they were living in New York. He got down on one knee on Bow Bridge in Central Park.
Tom and Nikki always knew they wanted to get married on the beach. Having spent a lot of time with their families on the Sunshine Coast and the Gold coast it made them drawn to the surroundings of Byron Bay.
The couple chose Elements of Byron without even going to the venue.
“We knew it was perfect when we saw the photos.”
Living in New York, Tom and Nikki entrusted Danielle from White+White Weddings to assist with all the styling and organisation leading up to the day.
From a live painter, a saxophone player, to a photo-booth and donuts. Nikki and Tom’s wedding reception is the epitome of a good time.
“We didn’t want any of our family and friends to have jobs so they could enjoy the day.”
Nikki chose KWH because it was an Australian label, something she was passionate about supporting for her big day. She walked down the aisle in the hand-beaded Freya gown from our Luxe Collection. She found her dress in our Brisbane boutique – you can book an appointment here.
Nikki paired her gorgeous gown with the Genevieve overlay which was detachable and custom made organza sleeves, taking inspiration from our Vivienne gown.
“Make it (the wedding) your own!”
“Love is equality. Two people who are equal in love, equal in respect, equal in commitment.”
