Gorgeous couple Luke and Madeleine married in a truly breathtaking ceremony at Luminare Sky Deck in Melbourne, Australia.
This designer wedding down under has SERIOUS wow-factor, with a dreamy dress, Louboutin’s, an Armani suit and Tiffany & Co. touches. Swoon!
Here’s beautiful bride Madeleine to tell us all:
Luke and I met at high school! We’ve had eyes on each other since we were 15 years old and we’re each other’s best friends.
I remember sitting in class with him (he was always the class clown) and he just made me laugh so much!
A Bali proposal
We were in Bali when Luke took me down to the beach for a sunset stroll. The tide was out and the sun was almost setting behind the water and that’s when he surprised me by getting down on one knee and taking the ring out of his pocket.
He had completely caught me off guard! I had tears welling up and even now when I look back on it I can’t help but tear up a little.
We wanted a timeless wedding
The most important thing to us was having a wedding that would survive through the decades. We wanted a ceremony where we could look back on the photos and not cringe at any of our choices from the wedding dress to the décor! That’s why we kept the theme timeless and classic. I really think that when we’re going through our wedding album, we’ll be able to look back on these photos and still adore them!
The view took my breath away!
As soon as I saw the Luminare Skydeck, with the view of Melbourne city, it completely took my breath away! The skyline is absolutely stunning and the gorgeous décor inside only complemented the stunning views outside. We also loved that the venue was so private, and guests could mingle, as there were bars situated around the dancefloor.
My top tips for other brides (and grooms) to be are…
Take some time out for yourself right before the big day! It can get so stressful with all of the planning and finalising the smaller details so it’s important to remember why you’re doing it – to share a lifetime with the person you love! Go for a dinner and have a nice walk with your partner and don’t mention the wedding word; this will help to ground you both and de-stress you.
Honeymoon hotspot: Luke and I both share a love for travel so we’ve visited some amazing places together, but our honeymoon has truly been our favourite holiday together.We took a month off and went travelling through Europe from London to Paris to the warm beaches of Croatia. Stunning night time dinners and strolls through Paris would have to be my favourite memory though. The city truly is for lovers!
Wow! Luke and Madeleine wanted a timeless and chic affair and that’s exactly what they pulled off – how gorgeous was their big day?
These high school sweethearts (aw!) looked like Hollywood movie stars didn’t they! The venue’s amazing too!
Thank you to Luke and Madeline for chatting to us and their AMAZING photographer Blumenthal Photography for sharing these wonderful photographs with us!
