I caught up with Annalisa & Peter a little while ago just before the pandemic restrictions started in earnest. These two had an amazing Noosa wedding planned with Annalisa's family coming over to Australia from Italy to witness and celebrate, but sadly they had to change their plans for 2020. At the time of the shoot none of this was even a consideration and they just had a lot of fun and their love and connection was so apparent it was a joy to capture. I can't wait for their wedding to happen and be a part of it however it is x
One of the most remarkable weddings I have photographed to date was Dom & Anthony's Noosa wedding held at the Waterfront Restaurant here on the Sunshine Coast. These two beautiful people had planned this day down to a tee with fine foods and wines and good times from late morning and throughout the day. There was just one problem - the weather didn't play ball, however, that didn't stop these two. Dom arrived in the rain without an umbrella and lit the morning with her gorgeous smile - they carried on with their plans and to heck with the consequences. Check out this beautiful day below and also Dom's dress, which could've had it's own blog post all by itself. To Dom & Anthony - it was a real honour being there to capture it all and I wish you much continued happiness and good health x Other suppliers were amazing flowers and styling by First Class Functions, Dom's gown by Tiraden Gowns
Check out Hayley and Alex's Noosa wedding. Their stunning Noosa wedding near the beach and reception at Ricky's Noosa Restaurant with their family and friends was such a fun day, I was felt so lucky to be the one to capture it all for them. To Hayley & Alex - congratulations and i wish you both much continued good health and laughter x Their awesome suppliers included: Jarrad Bayliss Celebrant, Willow Bud Florist, First Class Functions decorators, Nat Hunter Makeup Artist & Rickys.
Hidden Grove Ceremony & Sails Reception, Noosa Wedding
These 2 had the best of everything for their wedding and it was such a stunning day (sandwiched between some wet days here on the Sunshine Coast I can tell you!). An international flavour to the day with a lot of guests coming from Kyah's homeland across the ocean in the USA. And I have to say Kyah's 'joie de vivre' was infectious and it was easy to see why these two were much loved - check out the images below, I'll bet you can't help but smile along with Kyah :) For starters they had a total of 14 in their bridal party and while it's probably on the limit I would say they made it pretty much a party and celebration from the get go! The wedding ceremony was at Hidden grove with celebrant Trudy McGee, amazing styling and florals by First Class Functions. Transported here and there by Scott and the cool Old Skool Kombi. Then onto one of Noosa's finest places for the reception - Sails Restaurant, immaculately run by Steff and the staff there. To Kyah & Tom - thank you sooo much for having me there and I wish you both much continued happiness and good health x Other suppliers for the day were: Makeup - Kate Ellen Makeup Artistry Hair - Evalyn Parsons, Cake by Raw & Peace & the day was expertly captured by Sunshine Coast videography :)
Cristin & Dean wedding in Noosa was such a stunning affair - elegant styling and detail throughout the day setting the scene for these two to tie the knot right next to the famous Noosa Main Beach. You can't tell from the photography that much but let me tell you whilst it was a stunning Sunshine Coast day, the wind was blowing pretty hard off the ocean - especially during the ceremony. This, however, didn't really affect anything one bit as these two only had eyes for each other. With the flowers (check out the bouquets!!) and styling by First Class Function, celebrant was Aubrey Cannon, transport by Old Skool Kombis and the reception at Noosa's Waterfront Restaurant - the whole day was just perfection, these guys even got a friendly wave from a passing whale! To Cristin & Dean - thank you so much for having me there to capture your day for you, I had alot of fun and you both (and your bridal party!) were awesome. I wish you much continued love and laughter xx
Hidden Grove, Noosa Beach & Boathouse Reception...
Pamela & Nathan's Noosa wedding can only be described as stunning! All the elements combined to make the day perfect, from the gorgeous Sunshine Coast weather to the local Noosa suppliers' professionalism and friendliness. I started the day by catching up with the boys getting ready in a Hastings Street apartment overlooking the famous beach and then onto Pamela and the girls at a house not far away. The ceremony was at Hidden Grove overlooking the Noosa Main beach and then onto the reception at The Boathouse with a fireworks entrance for the bride and groom. It was truly a pleasure capturing and being a part their day. To Pamela & Nathan - thank you for having me there and I wish you much continued happiness and good health x The A-list of Noosa suppliers were: Hair by Evelyn Parsons, Makeup by Melina Dee, celebrant was Jarrad Bayliss, flowers and decor by First Class Functions, limo by DC Limos, music by LoveNote Music, fireworks by KCS Firworks and cake by Sweetness Contained.
Hidden Grove ceremony & Rickys wedding reception...
I know I say this alot, but weddings are a real pleasure to photograph and Holly & Woody's Noosa wedding was absolutely no exception. Their Sunshine Coast wedding was probably one of the most fun and relaxed day ever - these two humans had a beautiful connection not only with each other, but also with their friends and family. It was awesome to be a part of and I thank them and their guests for making me feel part of the day. They got ready at Las Rias (Quamby Place) in adjoining rooms, so I kept popping backwards and forwards as they got ready and even got a photo of them both together without them seeing each other before the ceremony. Their wedding reception was at Hidden Grove on Noosa Main Beach by celebrant Jay Flood with the sound of the waves in the background and then after some photos they took the ferry to one of Noosa's finest - Rickys Restaurant, for their wedding reception and to party on. The flowers and styling was provided by the ever impressive Twig & Grace and music for the day was by the awesome Hamilton.
To Woody & Holly - I wish you much continued love and laughter. From Me, Stanley and a kiss from Luna x These are just a few of my fave images that only begin to tell the story of this momentous day...
I love a backyard or DIY wedding and Eliza & Tim's stunning wedding was exactly why. They got married on Eliza's parents' property in Doonan on New Years Eve on a scorching day and the whole day was just fun and relaxed - just the way it should be... My thanks to everyone for making me feel like part of the family...x
Noosa main Beach, Casuarina Gardens wedding photography
Jade & Igor chose the newly opened up Casuarina Gardens (they chopped a tree down for a better outlook) with the stunning view of Noosa Main Beach for their wedding. I loved the happiness of this day, the joy, the love and the carefree and relaxed nature - typical of a Sunshine Coast wedding. They wanted their wedding photography and images to reflect this and being as that is what I'm all about, it was perfect for me and I had a blast with these guys. These are just a few of the images to give a snapshot of their day. Flowers & decorating by First Class Functions To Jade & Igor - congratulations and I wish you much continued happiness, love and laughter x
This wedding had everything I love about weddings - first of all two people in love, secondly their family and friends were awesome and thirdly they embraced the Sunshine Coast and Noosa vibe to a T by by just having fun all day. Every part of the wedding was thought out and planned down to the finer details with the following people - decorators & flowers Twig & Grace, celebrant Jarrad Bayliss, Vicki from Silk Hair & makeup, Deluxe Kombi Services, music at the ceremony and reception by Paper Flowers, cake by Sweetness Contained with the reception at Sails Restaurant. To Karl & Tania - I thank you soo much for having me there to capture your special day, I wish you much continued love and laughter x
I learned a few new things at Sam & Jamie-Lee's wedding - well some new things and some things I knew already but were reinforced. These guys got married at the stunning Annabella Wedding Chapel in Ilkley before heading to Noosa to party on at the Riverdeck on the Noosa Marina. The day confirmed that eating lollies was vital to keeping your energy up on a wedding day...for the bridal party aswell as me! I learned that dropping your trousers was a thing when dancing to Eagle Rock! The day also confirmed what a wonderful celebrant and person Mary Bruce is :) I had a real blast capturing this special day and can only be greatful for having wonderful bride and grooms to work with, especially when their family and friends make me feel part like I've known them for years too. To Sam & Jamie-Lee - thank you for having me there, it was truly a pleasure and I wish you both much continued love and laughter x
Maison La Plage Noosa Beach wedding ceremony & Rickys wedding reception...
A perfect stunning Noosa wedding - that is what I would describe Nicole & Rowan's wedding as :) They both got ready in houses on the Noosa waterways, ceremony next to Noosa beach at Maison La Plage and after the bridal party shenanigans they hopped in the Noosa Dreamboat and sailed off to Rickys Restaurant for the reception! Along with awesome colour schemes in their stunning bouquets...and even though i am a bloke I can totally be impressed by Nicole's dress with gorgeous lace upper bodice. Hair & makeup by Vicki from Silk, celebrant Natalie Skye, flowers by Redlands Fresh Flowers, river transport by Noosa Dreamboats, dress by Karen Willis Holmes and reception at Rickys.
It was real pleasure getting to know these two and their family and friends and I wish them both much continued love and laughter xxx
Zoe and Daniel chose Noosa Beach Access 12 for their ceremony for a good reason - it's further down the beach than all the other wedding ceremony spots and therefore a little more private as it's away from alot of the beach goers. With the ever relaxed Jay Flood as the celebrant it was the perfect Noosa and Sunshine Coast wedding as shoes were optional with most people opting for thongs. These guys wanted their bridal party photos on the beach in my usual relaxed laid back style before heading to Gympie Terrace so we had alot of fun messing around. Then onto the awesome Noosa Boathouse Restaurant for their celebrations. It was a real pleasure being a part of Zoe and Daniel's wedding - they chose the perfect destination and Noosa didn't disappoint. Congratulations guys - I wish you much continued love and laughter x
Anna and Daniel were married at Hidden Grove, Noosa beach last month on a beautiful March day - not too hot and no sign of rain, but some awesome clouds on the horizon. Surrounded by family and friends these two were both nervous and excited and had the most relaxed day planned for everyone. These are just a selection of my faves that give you a glimpse of the story of their day... Amazing flowers and decorations by First Class Functions, make-up by Pru Edwards, hair by Hair By Nicola, wedding reception at Sails Restaurant and the ceremony was by Pastor Jake Smith. To Anna & Daniel - I really enjoyed being a part of your day, thank you for having me there. I wish you both much continued love, laughter and good health x
Noosa Woods Wedding and Sails Wedding Reception...
Style, class and elegance are all words to describe Jacquie and Wesley's Noosa wedding. The choice of red for the bridesmaids dresses along with the red roses bouquet and boy's ties all worked together really well - then there was Jacqui's dad's 1949 green Jaguar which he proudly drove to the ceremony to give away his daughter. What was also in abundance was the affection and love not only that these two had for each other, but that all their guests had for them. To Wesley & Jacqueline - it was a real privilege to be a part of and capture some very special moments from your special day, I wish you both much continued good health and happiness x Other suppliers who helped make the day special were make-up artist Tasleema Nigh, celebrant Stephanie Neal, flowers from Mondo Flowers, Birti The Bentley, Sails Restaurant for the reception and co-ordinating everything was the awesome Chantel & Shannon From Weddings of Noosa.
So this is Candice and Matt who got married in Noosa at the newly named Peppers Resort (formerly Outrigger) they must've known it was going to rain as they had booked an undercover ceremony spot from the start :) Their wedding party included 3 young page boys and 3 young flower girls and let me tell you some of them partied hard and longer than some of the adults - some great moments from the day, especially at the reception with the rose petals that were laid neatly on the floor in the initials of Candice & Matt. These are but a small number of my fave images from the day.. To Candice & Matt - thank you so much for having myself and Stan along for the day, we had a blast hanging out with you all. We wish you much continued happiness and good health x Make-up by Natalie Hunter, hair by Bec Dencher, Celebrant Jay Flood, Kombi from Old Skool Kombis.
