Ilecia & Tyson’s Tropical Wedding

The tropical wedding created for this chic as couple proves why you can never have too much greenery

Think perfect weather, lace gowns, white roses and a sea of green. This wedding really ticked all those tropical wedding boxes. Ilecia & Tyson were as laid back as they come. Being from Cronulla, they were all too familiar with those chill seaside vibes. And oh boy did we love what they did with Beachside Dojo.

The Details

Hosting both their ceremony & reception with us, the couple wed in front of 140 of their closest family & friends. A cocktail reception was of course an easy choice which helped keep with their more casual style. They also teamed up with local style queen, Ash from Poco Uno Creative. She transformed our space into the most deliciously beautiful ‘tropical jungle’ we ever did see.

An abundance of lush greenery was paired back with white roses and florals. The ceremony styling literally took our breath away. Have you ever seen an arch so beautiful? Not to mention the double peacock signing chair modernised with a perspex coffee table. Yes please! And did we mentioned the dress? Ilecia’s stunning long sleeve laced gown came from Babushka Ballerina, another one of our fave wedding suppliers.

Delicious canapes as well as a cheese & antipasto station were served on the night. Made with love by a friend of the bride, the gorgeous two tier wedding cake was decorated white roses and tropical palms. Another element that helped tie in the whole vibe of the wedding.

And finally, after the ceremony, the newlyweds went off to get some incredible wedding photos, while their guests joined us for a drink downstairs in Daniel San. The talented Jimmy Raper is responsible for all these amazing images. If you’re not familiar with his work, we definitely recommend taking a peek! They stayed local and head to Shelley Beach for some intimate snaps, before making their way back to Manly where the party all began.
