Coffee Date | Caitlin Gilbert from Beautique Love shares her destination wedding advice29 January 2016
Q. Tell me all about how Joshua proposed…
Josh proposed on my 25th birthday. I came home from work and he had filled our house with candles and sunflowers (two of my most favourite things). It was a complete surprise!
Q. Why did you select Laurance as your wedding venue?
Josh and I had gone to Laurance for lunch years before and I fell in love with the rose garden and the beautiful building. From that day on I always dreamed of having our wedding there!
Q. How did you find out about Aisle Style?
I knew right away that living in Perth and having a South West wedding I would need help. I came across Aisle Style on the Margaret River Bride and Groom website and I loved your work!
Q. Where did you get your inspiration for your wedding day style?
I took inspiration from Lauren Conrad’s wedding. I loved the all white blooms, dark wood and candles – it looked romantic and rustic and that’s what I wanted to recreate.
Q. How did you feel when you saw Joshua standing at the end of the Aisle?
As soon as I saw Josh all my nervousness and stress melted away. I knew in that moment I was exactly where I was supposed to be!
Q. One for Joshua – How did you feel when you first saw Jessica walking towards you?
I was overwhelmed with happiness and love, nothing else mattered in that moment, my eyes were fixated on Jess and her beauty.
Q. What was the absolute best part of your wedding day?
One of my favourite moments was just before Josh and I walked into the reception space. We could see all of our friends and family chatting and laughing through the windows, it was nice to have a quiet moment just the two of us to take it all in!
Q. What would be your hot tip for a newly engaged couple for their wedding day?
My advice would be to leave the styling and planning up to a professional so that you and your bridal party can enjoy every moment of your special day!
Q. Is there anything you would have done differently in the lead up or on the day?
I would have tried to “stress less” leading up to the wedding. I was worried about how everything was going to come together. The thing is, if something doesn’t go perfectly to plan, no-one knows but you!
Q. Finally, how would you sum up your wedding day in one word?
