13 of our Best 2017 Styled Shoots


This year we have seen way more than our fill of spectacular Sunshine Coast wedding style. Heck, we’ve even conjured up and created some ourselves! Our tiny team of two have organised no less than seven styled shoots to fill the pages with unique and innovative wedding ideas and styles to help you plan your dream day. 

This year we have definitely put together some of what I’m sure will remain in our all-time faves for years to come. We have also had some incredible talent find its way to our inboxes, which we’ve shared with you on this here blog or in our magazine, our enewsletter and on social media. 

We spend our days dreaming up and hunting out ways to inspire you on your wedding planning journeys, our darling Sunshine Coast brides and we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to do so! 

To send out the year, I thought I’d share a bunch of our favourite styled shoots from the year that was. 2017, you were very pretty indeed. Let’s see if 2018 tops you – gosh, that will be a challenge! 

Brides, please stay safe and sound this New Year’s Eve. We look forward to bringing you more Sunshine Coast wedding inspo next year after a short break. 

Until then, savour pouring over these incrediballs styled shoots! 

Lots of love, 

Sally + Jenny
