When you have a dream...as a Bride-to-be, many have a vision of how they would like to look on their Big Day. Some, just having an overall feel in mind, and others, like our beautiful bride, Renae, have an absolute clear picture.
It was truly rewarding to help Renae, bring her wedding vision to life....and so the planning began.
Renae was ready to marry her man, Nathan, and she knew exactly in what setting she wanted to do this in!! Now, trying to bring her dream to reality...that was another feat!!! Renae was juggling looking after her two little girls, Siena and Hazel, a family business and being an on-call midwife, in addition, to planning her dream wedding and a massive house renovation....eeeek!
This Bride, certainly had her hands full!
When it comes to Renae's wedding accessories, Renae nearly settled for something she was not really happy with...but then she found us!! Renae booked an appointment and then made the trip from Leschenault to discuss her dream accessories. Which leads to the question we asked her on how her experience was with Kezani?
"I made a trip up to Perth from where we live in Leschenault to meet Anita at Kezani. It was like I’d made an appointment with an incredibly passionate artist who could bring to life anything that my heart desired. Anita listened to my ideas and supported me 100%. I was so happy that she seemed excited about creating something really special that symbolised who I am and what I love. We had so much fun and felt like princesses. Anita designed the most amazing head pieces for me and my little girls. I also got my ‘lotus flower petal’ veil and the lotus skirts for my little girls that I had dreamed up… they were even better than I imagined!!"
Below is a pic capturing the beautiful pieces we made for Renae and her girls including those lotus petal flowergirl skirts. The dainty head jewellery had stunning crystal pendants hanging from them including a few special Swarovski heart crystal pendants for the girls. The headchains were adjustable, which allows the girls to wear them now, or as they get older.
This special day was captured by Nat from We are all Stardust.
With Renae's veil, she had a definite vision. Renae brought in a sketch with her veil representing Lotus petals finishing at all different lengths. We had this veil cut from glimmer tulle and added little golden pear crystal drops on the ends of all the petals. It was a stunner!!
Renae and Nathan's wedding ceremony had a truly memorable touch for the two of them, with their 'Circle of Love'. The couple sent a river stone with every wedding invitation for their guests to write a little message on them. Each stone was placed in an unbroken circle around their decking and Nathan and Renae were married within their 'Circle of L♥ve'.
Here, we go back a few special moments, as one of the questions we asked Renae was "What was her favourite part of her day?"
"I was so surprised at how much love and ‘oxytocin’ [midwife terms] I felt on the day.
My favourite part of the day was seeing Nathan standing in the middle of our deck all dressed up, with tears in his eyes and the biggest smile on his face when he saw our daughters, Siena and Hazel walk towards him… and then his smile got bigger and the tears flowed even more when he saw me. It was perfect!"

Now, we have one more part of this pretty love story, our gorgeous midwife, Renae with hubbie, Nathan, now have another little addition to the Binet Clan. Introducing beautiful April, in this precious Motherhood shoot by Tamara from Ashbrook Imagery. Renae got to wear her head jewellery again and dress up little April in the girl's jewellery. LOVE!!!
To finish this wonderful capture we asked Renae, "what is the one piece of advice you could offer to future brides?"
"Your wedding day is the one day that you can truly express who you are and what you love! My one piece of advice to future brides is to surround yourself with people and vendors who understand and support you so you can truly follow your heart when it comes to planning your special day. Let the magic of who you are individually and who you are as a couple come to life as you plan your unique wedding. Afterall, as you embark into married life together your wedding day remains as a beautiful reminder of what you love so much about each other and your relationship."
Well said, Renae!! We hope you have enjoyed this beautiful story...till the next one...
