Redcliffe couple Courtney and Martin grew up living in their family homes only two minutes apart. However it was a chance meeting in the city that brought them together. Four years later they were engaged and spend 15 months planning their destination wedding in Noosa.
They planned their wedding for a Friday, so all their 100 guests could join them to enjoy a long weekend of celebrating in the beachside location.
Location + Style
It was all about the location and spending as much quality time as possible with their 100 guests. Most travelled to be part of their Noosa Waterfront wedding. Their wedding theme had coastal and Hamptons vibes with coconuts and macrame elements. Pretty Little Lane stamped their unique decorative style on the ceremony and reception at Noosa Waterfront Restaurant + Bar. To complement the decor and natural surroundings, the stylists used plenty of greenery and various natural textiles.
Courtney’s bouquet was a posy with a relaxed undone feel featuring my absolute favourite – stunning white fluffy peonies! To die for! Magnolia Grove constructed an asymmetrical arrangement for the ceremony utilising dense greenery ranging from delicate fern leaves to large deep leaves. The ceremony arrangement and styling together created a distinctly tropical feel.
The bride was stunning in a white Mori Lee & MGNY design from Brisbane bridal boutique, White Lily Couture. ‘Greta’ is a sparkly tulle ballgown finished with cascading crystal beads. The V-neck bodice is complete with sheer straps which continue onto the the low back. The beaded belt is a pretty touch, which highlighted the bride’s waist.
Mallory Sparkles Photography took some particularly stunning images of the couple and their bridal party on Noosa beach. And of course was there to capture every special moment of their Noosa Waterfront wedding from morning till night. “I gave my bridal party Samantha wills rings, and a few other goodies. My husband got me a purse as a wedding gift, and I got him personalised cufflinks.”
“We chose to have our wedding ceremony and reception in the same place as we wanted our guests to relax and not have to go from venue to venue.” “We had a candle lighting ceremony to remember our loved ones who have passed. We also got our immediate family to stand when asked ‘who gives who away'” “We wanted to get married in an area that guests would love, we wanted people to stay the weekend so we chose to have our wedding on a Friday. And then we also organised casual drinks and lunch the next day.”
