Vanessa + Adrian's unforgettable 3-day wedding held at the Old Dairy, Maleny.

When Freddie Met Lilly's (renowned Australian bridal boutique with flawless made-to-order gowns) designer Vanessa Hoe, tied the knot to her now husband, Adrian, in what was regularly discussed as THE wedding of the century. With Vanessa's incredible knowledge of the industry and having some of Australia's best wedding vendors as close friends for so many years, it was always going to be a spectacular day to remember! It couldn't be a more perfect wedding to feature as no detail was left spared.

The wedding was an incredible 3-day event, all held at the stunning The Old Dairy in Maleny. The actual ceremony and reception was held on the Friday then Cuisine On Cue put together a beautiful feast for the 'Recovery Party' the following morning and some of Ness' best girlfriends from Beautiful Weddings styled it to perfection. Then on the Sunday, a huge 'I-DO BBQ' was put on with other family members ad friends who were unable to make the big day.

Vanessa designed 3 wedding gowns for herself (yes, THREE!), to wear over the course of the night! Covered with her favourite hand-placed lace and paired with a flawless pair of Louboutin heels, they were incredible and admired by all who attended.

WFML's famous Dachshund, Coco, alongside their son Archie, best friends, sister-in-law, little nieces and nephew, Vanessa & Adrian's bridal party stood proudly by their side. During a beautiful ceremony by celebrant Carly Slade, vows were exchanged and came straight from the heart, cementing the irreplaceable love that combine these two individuals. After speeches filled with laughter, many cheers to the newlyweds and a delicious dinner altogether, the Ford's hit the dance-floor with their nearest and dearest and rocked long into the night to Luke Dickens & his incredible band.

The whole weekend was a DREAM! What a way to celebrate love, one another and their closest friends. It was such a brilliant opportunity to showcase Australia's best wedding vendors and their undoubted talent. (Just wait until you see the photos - utter perfection!)
