Jess + Paul’s Yandina Wedding

17th November 2015

Bright flowers and pineapples for this fun wedding at The Rocks.

MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0090

Highschool sweethearts, Jess and Paul, planned and executed a crazy beautiful wedding with plenty of life and love at Sunshine Coast wedding venue, The Rocks in the sleepy little town of Yandina. 

We adore their colourful flowers and fun styling with touches of gold and funky pineapple details for Jess and Paul’s Yandina wedding. Hanging flowers decorated the clear ceiling marquee, adding to the whimsical fun of the occasion.

“Before the ceremony we had photos in my friends amazing house she built – she is an architect! We stayed on site and used the old rail way tracks and trees for photos.”

“We had most of our siblings in the bridal party and we had our grandmothers as the witness’s for the ceremony. Of course my dad walked me down the aisle, too.” MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0064

“The very best thing about our wedding was seeing each other for the first time and seeing Paul shed some tears, which made my brother and dad then cry along with everyone else pretty much!” MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0065 MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0067  MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0069 MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0073MARSDEN SPECIAL EDITS0075
