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.
