Gemma + Luke’s Buderim Wedding

3rd February 2016

This bride and groom wanted their wedding memories captured in a journalistic documentary style from their Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Gavin Wyatt.

Bride Gemma went by the philosophy that there is beauty in simplicity, and planned her wedding at Buderim’s Wirreanda Park and Ebb Waterfront Dining and Cellar as such. The reception featured greenery only on the tables, which looked beautiful and fresh, but also saved an awful lot on the old flower budget! 

The bride’s personal style was contemporary and ethereal in a custom-made gown featuring intricate lace bodice and a full flowing skirt of grey tulle. Topped off with a white-on-white floral crown, there’s nothing not oh-so-right about this whole vibe. We love it! 

Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Gavin Wyatt, was there to capture the entire affair with his distinctly creative documentary-style photography.

Having our beautiful almost 3 year old daughter there to share the day with was so special. She referred to her flower girl dress as her ‘wedding dress’ it was very cute.Gemma and Luke Wedding Photography

“My advice to other brides: take rescue remedy before you walk down the aisle and a glass of champagne, it stops you from crying!”

“I had two great Dads and an awesome Mum. When the decision had to be made, I chose my Mum to walk me down the aisle, as she had being waiting for this day since I was born. She couldn’t have been more excited when I told her what her special role was!”

“I wanted grey in my dress, and I wanted olive leaves to be features in all the florals.”

“The bridesmaids were given a box of French macaroons each. The groom plus groomsmen were given a hangover kit which included mini berocca, Panadol, band aids and breath mints.”

“Finding a photographer whose work was a documentary/journalistic style was the number one priority. As well as finding the right dress that was unique and only made for me!”
