Ellishea loves Dylan | Chapel Wedding Montville

11th February 2019

After their chapel wedding, this Brisbane couple took their guests to Maroochy River for a waterfront reception. Friends, this is how you have the best of both worlds for your wedding day.

Ellishea and Dylan began and finished their wedding day at the seaside, and in-between their stunning ceremony was held at The Chapel Montville. When they returned to Maroochydore, their photographer fromRaconteur Photography took them to Cotton Tree for their photo shoot in perfect afternoon light.

The evening was spent with their 68 guests at White Ivy Lounge, mingling in the waterfront venue and eating delicious food and cake. 

Wedding Day Vision

“Our biggest priority was keeping focused on what it was that we wanted. How did we want to remember the day? What did we want it to look like in our memories, pictures and video? It was so easy to get persuaded by what others might want to you to do, but keeping grounded and communicating with each other was so important. Once we had that everything flowed.”

Love at First Date

“I knew after our first date we would have a long and happy life together. We connect on so many levels, have fun together whatever it is we’re doing and we are best friends.”

Where Ellishea Found Her Sunshine Coast Wedding Vendors

The Brides Tree, Easy Weddings, images from Pinterest, simple Googling of local suppliers, walking around area’s on foot that we knew we liked (then Googling them!), Etsy, Facebook and Instagram.”

The Chapel 

“Early in our relationship we had lunch at Montville with Dylan’s grandparents. Dylan’s Nan made a joke that she would get us hitched at the chapel there. It was awkward and funny the time but it just felt so right to go and check it out once we were engaged.”

Standout Vendors

“Our photographer, Adam, from and videographer, Brittany, from were so amazing on the day and what they produced for us afterwards was better than we could have imagined. They captured all the right moments in the best way, were professional, easygoing”

Wedding Secrets 

Biggest splurge: Having the ceremony at the Chapel, there were lots of cheaper options but it was the perfect spot for us.

Best money-saving decision: I would say the bar at the reception, drinks were paid by the guests in lieu of any wedding gifts.

Earrings: Etsy – Dearie Accessories.

Veil: Hand-sewn and individually beaded by myself!

Bride’s shoes: Wittner

DIY: I did a fair bit of organising myself, particularly the tablescaping and set up of the reception
