“I’m not certain we’ve seen bigger smiles on a bride and groom than those that beamed from the happy faces of bride and groom, Emma and Matty. Their Sunshine Beach wedding at The Surf Club reflected Emma’s whimsical boho personal style. Lucky Emma was able to call upon her interior designer mother, Sally, to help with all of the styling and sourcing of decorations.
Enjoy all the bohemian prettiness in these images byAKA Weddings by Katja Anton of the day when Matty married the girl next door.
“We were next door neighbours… I was the girl next door!” “It has taken us awhile, but we are slowly learning communication is the key! And making time each day to listen to each other’s highs and lows for the day.”
“As most of our friends have children, we were more than happy for them to be a part of the day. The most important things to us were fun, family and friendship.” “My two sisters Camilla and Arabella were the bridesmaids” “I am quite a beachy girl and have always been drawn to the boho, whimsical style, so I suppose that was the initial theme. The style and theme just sort of developed as we got closer to the wedding.”
