The sweet pair that Australia fell in love with during a very memorable season of Married At First Sight, had an equally memorable wedding day!
The intimate soiree wedding took place at Beta Bar in Sydney’s CBF, on November 17 of 2019, just over a year after the couple’s filmed wedding in the Channel Nine social experiment.
Couture Wedding Planning planned Jules and Cam’s entire wedding in just 3 months. After following the couple’s journey throughout the TV Series Married at First Sight they where very excited when Jules and Cam engaged them to Plan and Style their Wedding Day. The day after the couple booked Couture Wedding Planning they flew to Europe for 3 weeks, while they where overseas the company worked closely with them remotely and started to engage their suppliers, went to the venue to do a number of site inspections as well as start an initial budget for them.
“At our first meeting Jules showed us about 10 beautiful images of what she like her wedding to look and feel like and we took this initial inspiration and create 3 separate comprehensive style guides for each part of their wedding day – The Ceremony, The Reception and The After Party. Each part of the day has different feeling and it was exciting to create a progressive event for their guests to experience.
The Ceremony was held in Beta Bar. Flowers where sourced from all over the world by our flower growers Wafex Australia, Harry’s Wholesale and Tesselaar Flowers. The key styling piece we created for Jules and Cam for their ceremony was an incredible floral ceiling installation. Our florist – the super talented The Fabled Florette worked closely with the incredible Chandelier to Die for and our wonderful AV company QC Entertainment to create this magnificent installation which really set the tone for the entire day. The Fabled Florette, QC Entertainment, Chandelier to Die For and Couture Wedding Planning made up Jules and Cam’s Inner Tribe as each of these suppliers where heavy involved in each part of the wedding day.

“In order to conceal Jules from the media, we decided to have her get ready in the same building as the ceremony and reception. The only space available was a blank office room which we converted into a luxurious bridal suite. All Art Displays draped all the walls, and we brought in some beautiful pieces from the Treasure Room.”

What was your favourite part of the ceremony?
“Walking down the aisle and seeing Cam’s face see me in my blush pink toned dress, I will never forget this. No one expected me not to wear white! We remember looking up and thinking WOW at the incredible installations of chandeliers and flowers, it looked magic! Electricity was being sung in acoustic by Tillee Music and it was a truly romantic moment. After the vows we asked all guests to hug and kiss the person next to them, this was such a fun way of sharing the love in the room. Confetti machines went off as we walked back up the aisle and that was a little taster of the party that awaited us all.”
What did you think when you walked into the reception for the first time?
“I had to walk through the reception to get to the wedding ceremony, so I was literally the first person to see it and I have to admit it made me tear up. It was the most glamorous, rose gold, stunning, floral exquisite room I had ever seen. It was more than I could have ever imagined.”
What was your favourite memory of your reception?
“My big highlight was surprising Cam with the song I had written for him with Tillee Music. It was our story, my love for him and how we are together. Only 2 people knew I had this up my sleeve. It was just so magical!”
Fiona’s favourite part of the after party was when the amazing team at Smash Piñata Cakes created a cake that looked like a traditional wedding cake. But, when Jules and Cam came to cut it – they took two mini cricket batts and smashed it apart to reveal its candy-filled interior!
“It was our day. We did it our way. We did it with our good friends and we didn’t want anything to take away our happiness,” Jules says firmly. “We got married the first time on TV, it’s not like we’re a closed book. We’re very open people. But no-one even noticed [the cameras] were there to be honest. It was amazing.”
