Real Wedding | Emma + Liam

Tell us a little about yourselves!

My name is Emma and I'm a full time musician for Australian band Sheppard. I, along with bandmates and siblings moved overseas to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue our dream in music. 

I was lucky enough to meet Liam in Brisbane while I was home from tour. Liam had just moved from Warrnambool, Victoria to Brisbane to escape the cold weather in VIC. From the moment we spoke to each other, we instantly connected and have been at each other's side since then. He was working in insurance when he moved to Brisbane but has been tour managing the band for 3 years now.

Why did you decide to get married where you did?

Liam and I just moved out to Nashville, Tennessee in October 2023. We got engaged in September 2023 and were planning on getting married in Mexico. 

Unfortunately Liam's dad suffers from dementia and wouldn’t be able to make it over. We then made the quick decision to elope with just family witnessing our marriage in Brisbane. 

Brisbane has been home to me for 20 years and I love it so much, the weather is nearly always perfect and the scene is upcoming and vibrant. 

How many guests did you have?

14. Trent & Jessie captured our day.

What was your budget?


Tell us about your outfits.

I contacted Sam from Bloom Australia, who is a friend of mine and asked her what she thought would work with my body shape. She sent me a photo of a beautiful dress designed by Vivienne Westwood and I instantly fell in love.

What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning your wedding?

The most important part for us was making sure we got to spend the day with our family.

Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?

Making our families have a memorable day, especially Liam’s Dad and both our Grandma’s feel special and part of it.

Any tips for couples getting married?

It’s your day, if anything goes wrong or weather turns bad, remember to only control what you can, which is your mood and how you feel on the day.

Are there any vendors that you would like to tell us a little more about?

I managed to plan a wedding in Brisbane while living over in America, I was pretty proud of myself to be able to accomplish that with the help of my amazing vendors.
