Jade loves Khyle | A Country Hall Wedding in Obi Obi

Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-3-2

Brisbane couple, Jade and Khyle, tended as lovingly to their DIY wedding as they do one another on the daily. The pair enlisted the help of family and friends to decorate Obi Obi Hall for their catered reception, attended by 70 guests, to their exact vision. It was to be a sweet country affair, which first kicked off in a picture perfect ceremony at AnnaBella The Wedding Chapel.

When first planning their wedding, unfortunately there was a change of date, because the groom was deployed! Australian Defence Force Mechanic, Khyle, did his duty and a new date was chosen this year in April. Their Autumn country hall wedding in the Sunshine Coast hinterland turned out absolutely beautifully. 

These stunning images were captured by Matt Rowe Photography.

We prioritise each other and make sure we get quality time together to do the things that we love.”Jade & Khyle _ AnnaBella Chapel WeddingSunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-5-2Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-15  “We spend most weekends in the Maleny, Montville area, we got engaged at Obi Obi creek, and the countryside is one of our favourite places in the whole world. So our wedding theme reflected the country, natural and relaxing.”Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-17 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-9 “Our main priority was making sure the groom could attend; we had already postponed the wedding once due to him being deployed!”Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-27 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-28 Jade & Khyle _ AnnaBella Chapel Wedding2“Once you get to the chapel, and see your future husband waiting for you, nothing else matters.

It gave us some time together to just enjoy our special day.” Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-58 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-60 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-66 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-67 Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer Matt Rowe-70
