We seem to be on a roll this week with delightful Australian weddings . Today we have an intimate wedding from the ever-so-talented Jonas Peterson. This beauty was held at Coorabella, an incredible property near Byron Bay, Australia. It's complete with hedges of jasmin and gardenias and a giant teepee over 12 feet high.
You are going to love the flower garland strands hanging off the tree at the ceremony site, the unique and stylish family style table and of course the bride's J'Aton gown. Be sure to visit the full gallery to see more of this intimate Australian wedding.
From The Bride On Her Wedding Fashion:
I purchased a J’aton gown from Melbourne. I live in Sydney so there was a lot of travel back and forth. I went and tried on a few dresses locally and fell in love with their gown. It was hand beaded with swarofski crystals, knots, intricate beading on bust corseted. The train was 2 metres long.
I made a veil and pinned it into my hair just seconds before walking down the aisle. I wore pear shaped drop earrings from Tesserella House. The girls there were a hoot and so accommodating.
Acoustic guitar player serenaded the guests while they waited for us to walk. He played me down the aisle to ‘Here comes the sun’ and we walked out to U2’s ‘It’s a beautiful day’. My Mum walked me down the aisle hand in hand and gave me away. The aisle was filled with petals that matched the colour of the girls dresses. The girls were beautiful and the tree was spectacular! The tree is over 150 years old. The evening before the wedding some of my guests sat up making loads of strands of flower garlands to string off the massive branches of this tree.
The table was one big long table that hosted 60 guests like the Last Supper. The flowers in different sized cylindrical vases with berries and white and green flowers – I wanted them in abundance.
The table setting was the menu, with place setting card and a white napkin tied with natural string with a gardenia on each.

Bangalow sweet pork medallions wrapped in prosciutto stuffed with herbs + pistachios served with caramelized pears + Jerusalem artichoke puree
