Larissa and Lewis planned their 1950’s style wedding in Noosa Sound in 11 months. Down to the last little detail, their gorgeous classic theme was a real winner in this Sunshine Coast setting.The bride certainly looked the part with her gorgeous bold red lips and winged eyeliner, wearing a classic 50’s style full skirted calf-length skirt and fabulous sequinned red peep toe shoes.
For transportation, the couple hooned around town in awesome hired red and yellow Mustangs, first to their ceremony at Ravenwood Park, Noosa Sound, and then on to their reception at Trio’s On The River at Noosa Marina.
When planning their wedding, Larissa and Lewis placed their highest level of importance on finding the right photographer. They wanted to be able to look back and relive their magical day for years to come with beautiful images that told their story. They couldn’t be happier with the result in these amazing photos by Level Eleven Photography.
“My mum was amazing, without her there wouldn't have been a wedding!”
"We met through a mutual friend. It's funny we lived in Noosa for our whole lives, had mutual friends, even went to the same school, but never met!"
“At Trio’s we were able to have a formal area for dinner and speeches then an amazing area for dancing and celebrations.”
A Word of Advice From the Bride
“Slow down, enjoy and remember if something doesn't go according to plan on the day it’s okay, you’re most likely the only one that's going to know about it!”
