Ivory Tribe Top 10 Real Weddings – 2018
It’s safe to say that 2018 has been one full of glitz and glamour when it came to the real weddings we featured and celebrated on Ivory Tribe! So we absolutely had to take time to reflect and look back at the fabulous year in weddings it was.
The Mornington and Bellarine Peninsula were popular places to be wed which tells us that we are all suckers for a coastal party, but ultimately at the end of the day, you all identified most with those weddings that reflected the couples and their love stories.
It goes without saying that we love real weddings and we couldn’t feature so many incredible days without your stunning submissions – so thank you.
Also, if you’re in the process of planning your big day and are in need of a helping hand, our pretty wedding planning book Bride Business could just be the thing you need!
We take a look back at Ivory Tribe’s Top 10 most popular real weddings of 2018 – enjoy.
Brittany & Jack, Red Hill VIC
It’s easy to see why Brittany and Jack’s magical Mornington Peninsula celebration was a winner with you all. They had their fabulous and talented friends help them to pull off a day to remember. They kept things classic and simple and their guests smiled, laughed and danced all night long. Brittany was a vision in her gorgeous gown and Jai of Free the Bird captured it in all its glory.
Hayley & Jarrod, Curlewis VIC
Using the sublime views of Tribe favourite venue Rusty Gate on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, Jarrod and Hayley brought glamour and a whole lot of love when they celebrated their dream day. It was the perfect combination of coast and country, and after a heartfelt ceremony they partied the night away in the paddocks. Fabulous florals, a to-die-for dress, Hayley and Jarrod hit it right out of the ballpark with all the memorable moments snapped by Stewart Leishman.
Georgia & Sean, Merricks North VIC
Honestly, it was impossible to pick a favourite thing about Georgia and Sean’s swanky celebration. From the beautiful all-white bride tribe, to the epic styling and the obviously heartfelt ceremony – it’s a day filled with perfection. Good food, good wine, good people and private property perfection. We oohed and aahed over the fabulous photos from Down The Rabbit Hole Productions.
Yasmin & Brenton, Albert Park VIC
Where do we even begin with the perfect celebration of Yasmin and Brenton in the city of Melbourne. It’s hard to believe this darling duo planned this sublime day in only five months! With an elegant display of both fashion and florals, an emotional and memorable ceremony, the Melbourne weather turned it on and the perfect party was had by all. Lens legend, Katie Harmsworth, was there to document this dream day.
Dani & Dan, Fingal VIC
A private property wedding in fabulous Fingal was the natural fit for Dani & Dan’s romantic day. While they initally hoped to be married in Italy, they soon decided they would create a celebration with a touch of Mediterranean magic on the Mornington Peninsula so their nearest and dearest could be there with them. Fabulous florals surrounded them as they exchanged their vows, before the hit the dance floor all night long! There to capture all the action was Beck Rocchi Photography.
Chelsea & Jarrod, Warrandyte South VIC
We swooned over the sweet celebration of Chelsea and Jarrod when it came across our desks, and how could we not, it’s an absolute beauty. Their wedding celebration was a truly elegant beginning to married life – they let the gorgeous surrounds of their chosen venue shine as they opted for minimal and classic styling to complete their relaxed party vibe. There is modern wedding inspiration-a-plenty in this dreamy day, as captured by the talented Chloe May.
Rachel & Elias, Red Hill VIC
Rachel wowed Elias from the moment she set foot down the aisle in her gorgeous off-shoulder gown. The soft tones of pinks, maroons, greens and sea-foam grey accented their gorgeous styling and their heavenly mismatched maids were a dream. After feasting on a beautiful banquet, they hit the dance floor all night long and there to capture each and every moment was the talented Dan Brannan.
Susie & Elliot, Merricks North VIC
Being married on the Mornington Peninsula was a no brainer for Elliot and Susie. The pair have shared many a magic moment in the area, and the energy and stunning surrounds of Jackalope made it an easy and winning choice of location. It’s so hard to pick a favourite element of this magical day, so we will let you decide for yourselves, and the talented The White Tree captured it perfectly from all angles.
Alyce & John, Curlewis VIC
Alyce and John always knew they wanted a marquee wedding so they could embrace the great outdoors. They set about finding the perfect place for their marquee magic and Baie Wines was the perfect setting for their glorious I do’s. In an elegant affair that embraced the natural beach side surrounds of the property, and resonated with Alyce and John’s own laid back style – this day, captured by Georgia Verrells, will leave you feeling loved up and inspired.
Cait & Matty, Beechworth VIC
There’s nothing quite like a country wedding and Cait and Matty absolutely threw a party to remember in beautiful Beechworth. Their style was simple and minimalist with black, white, neutrals and glamorous greenery to enhance the already stunning venue. Dressed in a stunning gown, Cait took everyone’s breath away when she made her way down the aisle to her long time love Matty and Bec Bower was there to capture it all.
