Ilanah and Jake are a cute, Brit couple, who met here while backpacking in Aus (a Byron Bay hostel to be specific), six years ago and “have stayed together ever since,” says the bride, who wore not one, but two dresses, and one of our fave brands on her feet, Bared Footwear. We think you’d agree they are cute and stylish to boot, so scroll down for our chat all about their nuptials and all the pics by the talented Benny Wylde

THE INSPO “Was to create a rustic and romantic atmosphere with the beautiful backdrop of a vineyard. We wanted to incorporate beautiful flowers and lights to create a romantic ambiance and take advantage of the stunning views at Ekhidna Wines.”

FAVE DEETS “We loved how personal our invitations were, we got to design them with By Florence and had so many beautiful comments from our guests. The work that Brooke (The Beautiful Life) and Christine ( Blooming Bridal) did with the styling and flowers was breathtaking. We were both overwhelmed with how beautiful it looked.”

THE DRESS “I knew I wanted something classic and elegant, I went to different bridal stores in Sydney. The Ivory Room was by far the best experience that I had and would recommend it to anyone. I loved how my dress had attachable sleeves so it could become a different dress after the reception. My veil had tiny pearls and crystals in which dressed it up even more. I also had a second dress that was more fun and playful, the girls at Siss Studio were amazing. They listened to everything that I wanted and made the perfect dress for me. I could dance all night and felt so comfortable.”

REFERENCES “Lots of Instagram research!! We love the Q&A stories that Hello May did and found the links that you shared very useful.”

COOL CUSTOM “I (Ilanah) am Jewish, so it really made the day extra special to see Jake smash the glass once we were pronounced husband and wife. The glass that he smashed will be made into a beautiful picture to put in our home. We also had some Israeli dancing which everyone loved, we got lifted on chairs and everyone said it was an extremely memorable part.”

WE’RE GLAD WE “Got a stylist to help us make our vision come to life as this took a lot of pressure off us. We also had such great vendors that had constant communication to answer all our questions whenever we had them.”

STANDOUT VENDORBenny Wylde and Sam (Light Wise) really put us at ease the whole day – especially the sunset photoshoot. We loved their laid back approach and candidness.”
