If you’ve been on the lookout for some stylish coastal wedding inspo ─ you’ve come to the right place! With every aspect of this Dunes Palm Beach wedding oozing laid-back elegance, you’re sure to fill your cup.
Set in the scenic Northern Beaches, Tiannan & Braidon’s elegant coastal wedding was a true feast for the senses. From their chic outfits, their dreamy wedding ceremony styling & heartfelt vows, to the energy & love that overflowed from both the speeches & dancefloor, Tiannan & Braidon’s Palm Beach wedding was one for the ages!
But don’t just take my word for it! Let’s rewind the clock and explore how their wedding day unfurled…
Getting Ready in Style
Most couples choosing the Northern Beaches as their wedding location do so for its beautiful natural backdrops, relaxed luxe appeal & proximity to the beach. Considering where they might get ready for their wedding often doesn’t come into play until much closer to the day. Thankfully, Palm Beach is a treasure trove when it comes to stylish & luxurious accommodation options to choose from.
Spoilt for choice, and wishing for a relaxed wedding day, Tiannan & Braidon decided to stay in close proximity to their wedding venue to minimise any time spent on travel. Beginning their preparations in separate houses surrounded by their favourite people, our couple were able to enjoy getting ready for their wedding day at a relaxed pace, before jetting off to their wedding ceremony at Wiltshire Park fashioned in their finest.
Dressed in a contemporary Katherine Tash silk gown, and a luxe MJ Bale suit respectively, Tiannan & Braidon were the picture of black-tie elegance ─ perfectly complementing their Northern Beaches wedding venue.
Married by the Sea, Beneath the Trees
With its towering palm trees, lush landscapes, and ocean views, Wiltshire Park made for the perfect backdrop for Tiannan & Braidon’s coastal wedding ceremony.
Exuding both charm & tranquillity, the park underwent a romantic transformation under the enchanting influence of florist extraordinaire Willow & Bear. Their imaginative floral arrangement created the most ethereal setting as guests strolled in, serenaded by the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar.
Adding to the already dreamy atmosphere, the festivities began with a traditional smoking ceremony in honour of Braidon’s heritage, before Tiannon walked down the aisle accompanied by her proud (and emotional) dad.
You may recognise Canterbury Bulldogs star Braidon Burns for his sporting achievements on the pitch, but as he watched his beloved walk up to him, it was clear that their relationship is what he holds most dear. Their love was palpable to all who were there to witness, and it was a sight for sore eyes.
Framed by thousands of blooms layered into the ground, Tiannan & Braidon became husband & wife to the sound of the crashing waves in the distance. As they read their vows & exchanged rings with their son Luca in their arms, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Bridal Portraits in a Lush Oasis
When your chosen wedding ceremony location boasts a lush backdrop teeming with natural beauty, why would you waste time travelling somewhere else? This is exactly what went through Tiannan & Braidon’s minds when they were wedding planning, and I was more than happy to oblige.
With guests heading to Dunes Palm Beach for cocktail hour, our couple & their favourite people had Wiltshire Park to themselves, which made for the perfect setting for both their bridal party photos, as well as their more intimate bridal portraits.
After celebrating being newly married & goofing around with their friends, Tiannan & Braidon were able to enjoy some quality time together strolling around the park. With a gentle breeze rustling through the trees around us, and the sun casting a warm, golden glow on them, Tiannon & Braidon were radiating love as they made their way to their wedding reception a stone’s throw away.
A Wedding Reception Under the Stars
Located in one of Sydney’s most exclusive & naturally stunning locations, Dunes Palm Beach was the perfect venue for Tiannan & Braidon to party the night away.
Thanks to its seaside location, Mediterranean white-washed aesthetic, seamless indoor-outdoor layout, as well as lush natural surroundings, Dunes Palm Beach ticks every box when it comes to hosting a sophisticated, yet laid-back coastal wedding. It’s no wonder it’s considered one of Sydney’s top coastal wedding venues!
With Dunes’ striking setting as a canvas, Willow & Bear’s contemporary Italian-inspired reception decor had our couple and their 108 guests transported to a summer European dinner party. Proof you can experience the ambiance of a destination wedding, minus the hefty plane ticket.
Following a bustling entrance that had every guest up on their feet, and their bridal party taking shots of Fireball, Tiannan & Braidon’s wedding reception overflowed with laughter & fun.
From Dune’s delicious cuisine, to the Baked Collective’s heart-shaped wedding cake, Uruguayan drums launching the dancefloor to the Aperol Spritz flowing all night long, Tiannan & Braidon’s wedding day proves that you can have a fun & relaxed wedding experience ─ without making consentions on style.
