Amy & Lachie’s Wedstival Week in Whitsunday Paradise
Tropical Luxe – Wedstival
Amy’s vision was an elegant yet fun wedding in tropical paradise. Rather than having a single day event, Amy and Lachie decided to have their friends and family spend and entire week in Airlie Beach celebrating their nuptials. Their tropical luxe themed wedding wasn’t the only thing tropical throughout the week with their guests spending their days snorkelling off White Haven Beach, brunching along jetties and sipping welcome cocktails by the water.
Hosted by Airlie Beach’s most exclusive private estate, Paradise Cove, their guests felt as though they were worlds away as they arrived by bus into the 100km wide property. On arrival they were welcomed with coconuts filled with Amy and Lachie’s very own personalised cocktails, Lachie’s Cocky & Geronimo Juice!
The beachside ceremony was followed by boozy ice blocks to help keep guests cool and an oyster bar (one of Amy’s favourites). As Amy & Lachie poured a giant champagne tower, their guests were serenaded by the acoustic stylings of Total Entertainment.
Being anything but traditional, Amy wore blue from head to toe (literally)! Her bespoke blue gown by Ella Moda sat perfectly amongst her signature blue hair and custom designed Hogan’s Jeweller blue engagement ring.
Lachie was dressed by MJ Bale.
Custom cocktails, Fireworks and a personalised song which Amy performed for Lachie were just a handful of the final touches brought together for the big day. Amy & Lachie also had their close friend help them choreograph an incredible first dance to a mash up of some of their favourite songs.
‘Til Death Events did a stellar job of pulling together their dream ‘tropical-luxe’ day, giving them all the paradise feels they ever could’ve wanted. “We wanted a tropical theme but we also wanted to keep it modern,” shares Amy, who’s a member of Brisbane indie pop band Sheppard. “Our wedding planner presented the term ‘tropical-luxe’, which I think describes our day perfectly. We wanted it to be beachy but no sand and no frangipanis.” Men’s health coach Lachie’s casj M.J. Bale linen suit was total coastal vibes, Amy’s powder-blue dress was something from a fairytale. I couldn’t have been happier with the vendors I chose. Everyone was so professional and really understood our vision. Danielle, our wedding planner from Til Death Events, was incredible and she was there whenever we needed her.’
