Muriel & Simon

There are few more spectacular places in Australian than the Whitsundays and today’s intimate Hamilton island wedding captured all the gorgeous scenery with an small, romantic wedding for one loved couple who simply wanted a stylish and intimate occasion. They chose Emily Doran to capture their day and Hamilton Island Weddings to plan it all.

On how they met, Muriel remembers, “We were first introduced by a mutual friend. Naturally, sparks flew and it was a perfect match.”

Muriel chose a gown from Moira Hughes Couture, noting, “I wore the Willow gown, created in a delicate hand beaded French lace on a pure silk bodice by Moira Hughes Couture, Paddington, Sydney. This glamorous gown, very befitting for the location.”

“Special would have to be the white roses which we associate with peace & love. Familiar items such as the music, wedding favours, great food and a fabulous location were a must. We really wanted this beautiful day to be an intimate private occasion and enjoyed the whole day. Hamilton Island is an amazing romantic place to us.”
