{Stradbroke Island Wedding} Hailey & Tim

Stradbroke Island is a beautiful place, so no wonder there were about a dozen weddings being held there this particular weekend of Hailey & Tim's wedding. I had not been to the island since high school, and was excited at the opportunity to return with adult eyes.

Imagine my delight when I walked down the path from the carpark to the ceremony venue, atop the hillside on Stradbroke overlooking the ocean from above, were bentwood chairs, a wooden arch decorated with flowers by Bits & Buds and a couple of kangaroos grazing nearby.

Perfectly, the overcast weather meant the ceremony was perfectly lit, and only a little windy..

And what else do you do when your wedding day weather is not traditionally perfect? Make it perfect, and make the most of those moody oceans and that windswept bride look.. LOVE!

Oh and I can't finish up without mentioning that this was THE BEST reception I have ever seen.

{Cedar Creek Wedding} Belinda & Daina

This sunlit wedding was one of the most warming and inviting weddings I have ever been to. The love emanating between everyone, for Belinda and Daina was just amazing. Any wedding that does things a little differently is always refreshing for me too...

I was excited to find out upon arriving on this day that the girls, Daina being of British heritage, had been officially married the day before in the British Consulate the day before. Seeing as all the official things had been done, Belinda and Daina really put their mark on their ceremony, amongst traditional readings and vows, they untraditional arrived on horseback, and had their bridal party make a cocktail instead of signing papers.

For their bridal party photos we headed up to the lookout on Mount Tamborine and Belinda and Daina literally glowed.

 

Also please note.... Bubbles post ceremony are always a good idea.

 

Venue: Cedar Creek Lodges, Mount Tamborine

{Madura Tea Estate Wedding} Caryn & Adrian

Madura Tea Estate had been on my wedding venue wish list ever since I heard about it. Naturally I was so excited for this wedding, especially after Caryn told me about her flowers from Aurora Floral Studio - her bouquet had me gasping for breath as I was struck with its beauty! Those ROSES!!! Caryn rose to the bride style challenge, looking spectacular in her pink heels and Christie Nicolaides earrings. The Maid of Honour by her side, also looking stylish as heck, after being asked to wear whatever she pleased. Needless to say, within the first hour of this wedding I knew I was in for a real treat.

There were so many things that I loved about Caryn & Adrian's wedding. Flowers and venue and dresses aside; the groom, Adrian, was looking smashing too, the guests were lovely, and I loved the choice of feasting platters for the main meal instead of the traditional alternate drop.

A++ to Caryn & Adrian... I hope you enjoy seeing the beauty that unfolds in these photographs.
