Jessica  & Matthew

Jessica  & Matthew say “I do” on 16th  April 2019, they got married at Katathani Phuket Beach Resort in Thailand. The resort is nestled in the sheltered Kata Noi Bay, surrounded by rolling green hills, the resort enjoys 850 metres of pristine private beach and calm blue sea and is a perfect spot for a destination wedding.

Matthew had the ring hidden for over 6 months and was waiting for the right time to propose to Jessica. The first time, her family came over to Australia  from England to visit over Christmas and New Year and Matthew took the ring from Melbourne to Queensland hoping to propose after a scenic plane flight but Jessica unwittingly switched places with one of Matthew’s family members at the last minute and spoilt his plan. Matthew then took the ring to the Grampians and planned on proposing on the balcony at the Grampians but worried he may drop the ring.  Finally, Matthew got his moment when they took a trip to England. Jessica went out for a few drinks with her girlfriends and met Matthew and all of her closest friends and family at a local live music night at a social club she had grown up at. After the interval Matthew took hold of the microphone, introduced himself to the room full of people and called Jessica up to the stage to propose in front of some of their nearest and dearest. Despite the number of people, it was very personal and intimate and so lovely that Matthew proposed her home town where the romance began.

Jessica & Matthew had such a magical day and it was a dream come true to get married in Thailand, known as “The Land of Smiles”. A destination wedding can be a stressful idea for many brides, everything went according to plan thanks to help of the resort who organised the entire event. The wedding day was just such a special day, it was an intimate affair & Thailand was the perfect place to get married. The day went by in a blink of an eye, Jessica & Matthew felt so honoured to share the trip of a lifetime with all their friends and family. 

Belle et Blanc ‘Jessica’ came into our bridal store and picked out the stunning ‘Anika’ bridal gown. Jessica tells us, “I found Belle et Blanc on a whim. I spent two days in Melbourne with two of my bridesmaids and went to 7 different dress shops. Belle et Blanc was the first I visited and my dress was the second dress I tried on. It was nothing like what I thought I wanted but as soon as I tried it on everything changed and from then on I was comparing everything to that dress and I knew it was the one.” We are also so thankful to Jessica, and  feel so blessed to be part of their day, and we absolutely love the photographs!
