An Autumnal Fairytale


On a quest to inspire brides and grooms of the Sunshine Coast, a cohort of skilled Sunshine Coast wedding professionals took to local camel farm, Q Camel Dairy, to create a regal wedding dream. 

Her throne was a rustic wicker chair, her crown an intricate golden Judy Copley Bridal creation along with the gown – a coalescence of regality and whimsy. The overall style also implies an autumnal feel with rich warm tones in the bouquet by Magnolia Grove Flowers featuring natives and grasses to tie in with the locale. 

For recent bride Chanel, having a second chance at her Cinderella moment with her now husband, Scott, was a dream come true. 

Chanel says of their experience, “The day was a fairy tale, we were given the chance to have Sunshine Coasts top suppliers, leaders in their professions throw all their sparkly goodness at us, and we loved every minute. 

“Our afternoon in a picturesque setting, with the camels in their own environment, who made us feel so comfortable to interact with, was an experience we won’t ever forget.

“The afternoon light rolled in and calm had fallen over the farm. Tara Lee was working her magic creating the most beautiful space where we felt comfortable. Her vision, for the day was clear, have fun and she would be there to capture it all. And goodness, for an afternoon that was so relaxed and easy, the images have made us catch our breath.”
