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.

The lads started their wedding day prep with a quick trip to the barber. Cuts and blow dries all round! “My girlfriends and I decided to go out for some drinks to celebrate my recent promotion when my friends knew the group of mates Brent was with. We then all got introduced and Brent and I hit off straight away, the rest is history!” The bride and her maids were airbrushed by incredible Sunshine Coast makeup artist,Natalie Hunter Makeup Artist “Brent’s sisters and Mum organised a surprise high tea at Flaxton Gardens the day before our Wedding with all of my girlfriends. It was really special as they were still involved in our day.” “Walking down the aisle to see Brent standing at the end crying was such an emotional yet happy time! Seems like I married a big softy!” “We wanted to make sure that we created a day we could look back on and have so many amazing memories with the people we loved the most by making it a fun, relaxing atmosphere.” “We are a couple that prides ourselves on being each other’s best friend and world and will never forget that what we have is a once in a lifetime kind of love.” “We involved our family by having Brent’s adopted little brother and our niece as our Page boy and Flower girl, this was very special to us as they mean so much to both of us.” “We have both been working fly in fly out away from each other for the last year on different job sites, only seeing each other once a month. This has made us so strong in our relationship and now marriage as we know how to communicate in hard situations.”
