Kirstie loves Jared | Buderim Wedding

10th June 2017

First they said their I Dos in church, then they partied away on top of the hill on Buderim

When planning their beautiful Buderim wedding, bride Kirstie and her betrothed, Jared, really made the most of the experience and savoured the time being engaged to one another. Kirstie has some wise advice for future brides. 

“Make planning the wedding fun, talk about it over getting a coffee or on a picnic, make it a special time to look forward to. This means it’s not a constant topic of conversation but focused quality time to enjoy as an engaged couple.”

Kirstie and Jared also took the advice of others, who had come before them and looked ahead to what is most important in the long run, putting the wedding day into perspective. 

“Your wedding day is the craziest, most emotional, special days of your life as a married couple. Yet we were told that it’s one of the least important because it’s the shortest day you’ll be married. We believe that the most important thing is not that we have a perfect wedding day but that we start a marriage with a willingness to forgive each other our mistakes, and love each other through growth both as individuals and as a couple. ” 

The couple were married at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Buderim, followed by a reception with their 150 guests at Buderim Tavern. Swirltography was there to capture the day.

Eventually we started dating.”

For us this included the Church, Tom our mentor and friend who married us with the help of our Pastor Matt Thiele, and being surrounded by our closest family and friends.”Buderim Wedding _ Sunshine Coast Wedding _ The Bride's Tree Buderim Wedding _ Sunshine Coast Wedding _ The Bride's Tree Buderim Wedding _ Sunshine Coast Wedding _ The Bride's Tree Buderim Wedding _ Sunshine Coast Wedding _ The Bride's Tree “We have the same set of values, which keeps us always supporting one another.”
