It’s so lovely to share our Alannah Rose real weddings with you!
Today’s is very special- the Queensland wedding of Megan and Mark who chose our Rose Tapestry invitation suite in custom blue. The soft cornflower blue was the perfect fit for the French country style wedding Megan and Mark planned.
When I asked Megan her number one tip for brides she said “Don’t blink on your wedding day – it goes far too quickly! Enjoy every minute of it!”
Above: The couple chose the Alannah Rose Rose Tapestry invitation suite in a custom blue. “The beautiful stationery from Alannah Rose was a big hit! We were so excited when we received our invitations – we were absolutely delighted with them. The matching invitations, service covers, menu covers and place cards really helped to create the theme and mood for the day and we received so many lovely comments on them. A lot of people commented on how they thought they were a lovely mix of classic, yet modern style” says Megan

Photographer Cory Rossiter captured the photographs for the day. “We loved the natural look of the photos when we saw them – he really captured the essence and fun of the day. ” Megan remarked.
Stanthorpe Uniting Church was the venue for one of Megan’s lasting wedding day memories “I loved walking back down the aisle of the church to Eva Cassidy’s “At Last” after we were married and greeting all our family and friends. ” All the music on Megan and Mark’s wedding ceremony was performed by family & friends.
Above: Megan and Mark held their reception at Giardino Café. Giardino means “little farm or garden” in Italian and Kristy from the cafe helped style the wedding features. “We discussed with Kristy that we wanted to create a romantic, French country style atmosphere with lots of white flowers in tall vases and candles filling the tables.” says Megan. “She arranged everything and did such a beautiful job. We were absolutely delighted when we walked into the reception – it was so much more lovely than we had even imagined!”.
The beautiful wedding cake made a two hour journey from Toowoomba with it’s creator Robin Friedrichs who made sure the cake arrived intact!
The wedding was filmed by Megan’s uncle “My uncle Brett did the videography of the day for us. We were not going to worry about a video, when my uncle volunteered to do it for us.” says Megan “He did an amazing job and we are so glad to have the video now as a keepsake. It was great fun to be able to see the parts you weren’t there for – e.g. the groomsmen getting ready and then waiting at the church, the music at the church before we arrived etc. It will also be hilarious to watch in 20 years time I’m sure! “
Thanks so much Megan and Mark for sharing your wedding day with us x
