Elleah loves Brent | A Sunshine Coast Wedding on a Cattle Station


This couple are doing life right. You can just tell. They call theirs a “once-in-a-lifetime” love, and say they’ve got that communication thing down, maintaining a long-distance relationship to perfection.

Elleah and Brent are a beautiful local couple from Peregian Beach, who were recently married at Yandina Station here on the Sunshine Coast. Their wedding was as pretty as it was heartfelt, and their 84 guests enjoyed a relaxed afternoon ceremony under the picturesque fig tree, an icon of the cattle station-come-wedding venue.

Sunshine Coast wedding florist Willow Bud created some of the prettiest bouquets and floral arrangements we’ve seen, in keeping with Elleah’s bohemian bridal style, featuring a magnificent King Proteus, soft roses, pops of lavender blooms and spilling folliage for that undone vibe. Tipping that gorgeous boho bridal style right over the edge is the fresh flower crown. 

Nick Evans Photo stilled the moment in history, capturing the couple’s boho wedding in the country in these here images.
