Inspo: Elopement at Bilam-Belle Bliss

elopement at bilambelle bliss shoot

This year has been a tough one for gatherings and getting together with all our friends and family for celebrations! It feels like wedding planning has been a minefield, with constant updates to restrictions and what can be included in our dinner and dancing plans! One solution to navigating restrictions (or even just the planning headaches that can often come with weddings) is an elopement! Elopements aren’t just “running away to get married”, they are an intimate moment created between you and your partner – where you can come together and be officially married in your dream location. One of our absolute favourites was this elopement at Bilam-Belle Bliss!

Located in the gorgeous surrounds of Bilambil on the Tweed Coast, Bilam-Belle Bliss boasts beautiful tropical surrounds and absolute serenity. We partnered up with some of our favourite local wedding vendors to create this little elopement inspo.

This beautiful column style gown with delicate lace detailing and illusion bust is by our friends at Helena Couture Designs. Completed with a gorgeous bohemian-style headpiece adorned with floral details and those soft, draping details that perfectly complement the sweep of the dress’s train.

The navy hues spotted in the Groom’s attire and bouquet arrangements are carried through to the table styling by Emerald Aisle Events. Embracing the gorgeous greenery surrounds, styling was in keeping with the environment while adding some golden accents to natural wooden elements and crisp white runner matching the intimate, graceful feel of the bridal attire. Floral features by Lola’s Wildflowers provide the perfect finishing touches.

Real Weddings: Courtney and Aaron

Courtney and Aaron real wedding

Where do we even start with Courtney and Aaron’s gorgeous wedding! These two are absolutely stunning and every little detail of their wedding was too! We are so honoured to share this little piece of their love story with you as these two are practically a part of The Bridal Box Co. family.

Courtney and Aaron chose a gorgeous Autumn day the stunning surrounds of the Gold Coast, Australia for their wedding day. The weather could not have been more perfect, providing a beautiful backdrop for their wedding at Braeside Chapel in the hinterlands.

The couple stuck to tradition and prepared for the big day separately, with Courtney taking the opportunity to thank her gorgeous bridesmaids and Mum for all their love and support with our custom gift boxes! Courtney selected her personalised gifts for her leading ladies, who also surprised her back with her own Bride keepsake gift box.

Courtney wore Katrin, by Rosa Clara – a stunning fitted dress with intricate beaded detailing from White Lily Couture. The ceremony look was completed with an added tulle overskirt, creating a soft, dreamy feel. This addition meant Courtney could easily transform the look and feel of her dress to a backless evening gown for the reception. Ready to get this party started!

Our amazingly talented florist, Bumble and Bloom created bouquets and boutonnieres of roses, blue gum and pink peonies – perfectly complementing the bridal party, chapel and breath-taking reception venue, Poorinda.

Courtney and Aaron celebrated their perfect day surrounding by family and friends but could not forget their furry loved ones! Dressed to impress, their doggy attendants wore a bow-tie and flower collar.

The pair celebrated a second reception with Aaron’s family in London, then set off on their honeymoon, exploring Italy, Croatia and Greece in the spring.
