This wedding was one absolute joy fest! The sort of wedding where every moment is filled with smiles and unconditional love! From the super cute ‘First Look’ to the ring bearing furry friend, this wedding was seriously stunning! Every time we look at these amazing images from Luke Going Photography we just fall in love all over again!

We had the pleasure of styling this very intimate wedding affair for the gorgeous Amy and Chris. An absolutely beautiful, down to earth, loved up couple and seeing this day unfold and captured so truthfully saw us all shed a tear!

Amy and Chris were childhood friends and sweethearts; they wished for a bohemian-inspired celebration. The day began with a private ‘First Look’, with Chris waiting in sweet anticipation for his radiant bride to descend the steps to him.

Their earthy colour palette was set off with a lovely array of native and wild flower floral arrangements come together by Dezley from Twig and Grace. An untamed flower piece was woven beautifully over our timber and muslin draped canopy creating a magical place to exchange vows. We loved the bride’s gorgeous flower halo too!

Shoes here, vows there, love everywhere! A lovely way to greet guests and set the tone of the event, a statement that resonates so well with this super-relaxed and open-minded couple of ours. Guests watched the ceremony unfold from beneath a sea of exposed globes that added to the romance of the afternoon.

A special four legged man of the furry kind took pride in delivering the rings and the touching moments afterwards with the bride melted everyone’s hearts!

Held at the stunning Capriole Estate, a private hinterland property at the base of Eerwah Mountain, the day was shared with an amazing array of wildlife – from horses and shetland ponies to peacocks, chickens and guinea fowl. It was the perfect backdrop for this soulful couple that are so in tune with nature.

A vegan banquet took place inside the restored barn where one long table enabled all the guests to dine together. Our wooden tables and Bentwood chairs really set the tone for the rustic style feasting dinner served by the creative team at Spoonfed Catering.

We dressed the tables in a simple but eclectic fashion with our mix and match vintage plates, champagne glasses and embroidered napkins tied with ribbon. The tables were lined with scrim linen runners, with taupe taper candles and whimsically boxed florals cascading their way down the centre.

The festivities continued under the stars, it was a fun-filled night of dancing and laughs! You can’t help but have a little giggle yourself at the cake cutting and garter toss!

So much love to this amazing couple, we enjoyed sharing this truly special time in your lives!

Penny & Gerald are a remarkable couple with a remarkable love story.

They met in Darfur, Africa on a mission working for the Red Cross, where there was no running water, no electricity, no transport, nothing except 130,000 refugees struggling to survive under makeshift tarpaulin homes.

Their mutual passion for humanitarian work had drawn them from opposite sides of the earth…Penny from Australia, Gerald from Belgium. A decadent offering of Belgium chocolates from Gerald one day inspired a conversation that I believe will continue for a lifetime…they found each other, and love…and it is a beautiful love.

On their wedding day, it was the way he looked at her, and the way she looked back that really took my breath away. I can’t describe the emotion…but you will see it in the images below. Thank you Jonas for capturing the essence of this powerful love.

If I was to describe their wedding, I would say amazing in every way that they embraced their day, and how they built a wedding design that reflected their passions in life…a beach ceremony at Hidden Grove Noosa, followed by a reception dinner party under the stars at Lake Weyba Cottages…eclectic, rustic, bohemian, relaxed, cosy, romantic, surrounded by nature and their close family and friends…very emotional…but also full of fun, laughter and lots of love.

The ceremony at Hidden Grove…lots of smiles and excitement…

The photo shoot at Lake Weyba Cottages…vintage VW’s thanks to Penny’s family…the Carmen Ghia found locally (Penny’s favourite car)…and a mustard balloon just for fun…

That amazing bouquet by Mondo Floral Designs featured apricot David Austin roses, lavender, open coral Areeba roses, pale purple Hydrangea, and coral Alstromaria, gardenia foliage, Molucca balm, and geranium…all bound in raffia and natural twine…it was stunning!

The sit down dinner party “under the stars”, featuring exposed lightbulbs, and an Al Fresco dining experience by Spoonfed Catering. Bottlefed looked after all the refreshments. This dynamic Spoonfed/Bottlefed duo were amazing! A yummy two tier chocolate mud cake with fresh berries made by Cake Designs. After dinner, the guests made the most of an outdoor dance floor, when all heels were kicked off and the party and fun continued…
