Paradise runs through the veins of Isabelle and Will's love story. The intoxicating mixture of Fiji's other-worldly beauty and the thrill of earning exclusive open-bar rights due to exceptional beach-competition skills (limbo and crab-walking, respectively) proved to be the perfect concoction to inspire the beginning of their romance. It is only fitting that they chose another slice of tropical heaven as the picturesque location to say their vows. With guests coming from all directions (Isabelle being from Canada, Will being from London, and the two living in Australia), Maui was the perfect place for their destination wedding. 

Looking at these dreamy photographs by Enchanted Wedding Photography you would assume that our bride and groom stepped straight out of Mariana Hardwick and Hugo Boss magazines. Their style was fresh and classic, and was pervasive throughout their Maui wedding. Scroll down to witness all of the beauty and read the inside scoop from Isabelle about the first time they met in Fiji, their mountain-top proposal in Tasmania, and the vision behind their picture-perfect island wedding.

Will & I met nine years ago on a tiny island in Fiji. I was on my way to Australia to learn english (I’m French Canadian from Montreal) and Will was on holiday with his brother - he had just moved to Australia from London. I won the limbo competition on the island and Will won the crab race (no skills required here compared to me!) so we both had open bar for the evening and ended chatting all night..the drinks definitely helped the language barrier!

I was told to wear my gym gear and we headed to Melbourne airport. We landed in Tasmania and drove to Cradle mountain and at the top of the mountain. Will got on one knee and popped the question! I initially said ‘are you sure?’ (I know I can be trouble!) and finally/obviously said yes!

We wanted to bring some of the island vibe with all the greenery, monstera leaf and pineapples on the aisle. We decided to mix vintage and modern styles together with our lace table runner, gold geometric candles and dark wooden tables. I think you can never have too many lights, so we had bistro lights over the dance floor, tables, lanterns by the pool, fairy lights in the palm trees, in glass vases and plenty of candles. We had amazing craft cocktails, a brilliant ukulele player, beautiful food and dance floor packed with the entire wedding party, everything was just perfect!

We had the cutest photo booth! We bought a few polaroid camera, some Hawaiian props and had strings and pegs in between two palm trees so you could snap a pic and peg it between the trees. We have over 400 polaroids pictures from the day and they are hilarious! We kept the guest book for the recovery session the next day so people could write something about the wedding rather than having them signing on the night.

It goes without saying that having all our loved ones at the same location for the first time of our life is pretty amazing.

We managed to make our day so personal and unique by having Will’s brother Adam as the celebrant (he did the course and got certified just for our wedding!). He spoke both french and english and made everyone feel special and included. The entire ceremony was tailored to us as he knows us so well. We then had my brother Alex as the MC which again was perfect. He made everyone laugh, he knew everyone’s name and did the best job we could have ever dreamed of.

We were incredibly overwhelmed by all the speeches, we had messages and videos from friends and family who couldn’t make it, the bridesmaids did the most epic choreographed songs medley in both languages, we had tears, we laughed out loud, we felt the love from everyone!

We worked with the most talented people on the island and each and everyone of them contributed to make this day perfect!
