You know how this goes... in our wedding edition series we get the chance to talk to the babes that have worn our jewelry on their special day. These are ladies who aren't afraid to make a statement. The ones with a refined, yet unapologetic taste, AND the ones who we are inspired by. These are the women that make this side of our brand, complete.

Q: What was your favorite piece that you wore on your special day and why?
A: There is not one single piece that I can say was my absolute favourite! I had 2 years from when I said YES to I DO and I really made the most of that time to find the ‘perfect’ look for our day. I LOVED every single piece of my outfit. I was comfortable the entire day and was so happy that my vision had come to life.
Q: When preparing for your wedding, were you looking for specific jewelry to finish your outfit?
A: Jewellery was the last thing on my list to finish off my whole look for the big day. I hadn’t come across something I really loved and was not willing to settle for anything less. I was looking for pieces that would go with our theme and not take away the other elements of my outfit. As soon as I laid eyes on these pieces, there was no looking back. They were so ‘me’!
Q: How did you find the brand and what was it that made you feel connected to it?
A: As we all do these days, I was scrolling through IG and saw the Feather Canyon Earrings and instantly fell in love! When looking at the Both Sides Bridal collection I saw the matching Ice Cream Castle Ring and instantly knew they were it! I love big statement pieces.
Q: Alongside your dress, what was it about this jewelry that made you feel special?
A: Wearing the Ice Cream Castle Ring and the Feather Canyon Earrings just made me feel so different from any other bride. I didn’t want to be your typical bride and these pieces really helped me accomplish that.
Q: If someone else was looking to finish their wedding look would you recommend s+s, and why?
A: 100% yes! I haven’t come across anything like s+s before. The pieces are simple, yet make a big statement with anything you wear.
Q: What vibe were you going for on your wedding day?
A: Both Alex and I are from country Victoria, Australia. So we wanted to stay true to ourselves within the theme and have a relaxed yet classy vibe. Country/Boho was the vibe we were so strong about through the planning of our big day and I think we really nailed it!
Q: Give us a glimpse into your special day! Do you have a favorite memory?
A: Our wedding day was none other than perfect in our eyes. Yes, there were a few things that didn’t go to plan, like the weather but we made sure that didn’t ruin our day. We had a stress free day thanks to our bridal party.
It was nothing but love and laughter.
My favourite memory would have to be seeing Alex before I walked down the isle.
We had always planned to have an ‘intimate reveal’ before the ceremony. We wanted to have a special moment, just us two before the chaos of our day.
Alex had his back to me while we had our favourite song playing- Fast Car by Boyce Avenue. As I walked up behind him I tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around to see me in my dress for the first time. His smile was like no other. He held me tight, threw his head into my shoulder and cried while saying “you look bloody amazing darl.” That moment I will cherish forever.
