Planning a wedding with two small children is no easy feat, and Immy admits it was a huge challenge for her and her now husband, Ben. However the pair not only managed to pull it off, they did so in style. Their boho beach style wedding with plenty of genuine vintage elements was a wonderful family celebration.
Guests embarked on international travel to be with the local Sunshine Coast couple for their big day in Noosa. Their intimate ceremony witnessed by 60 of their nearest and dearest was held at Hidden Grove on Noosa Main Beach, while their reception under a giant tipi had them dancing the night away with sand between their toes at Novotel Twin Waters Resort.
Ben proposed at Easter, I suppose you could say the Easter bunny brought a different type of carat!
“We wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere, making sure everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves. A truly memorable occasion. Most importantly enjoying ourselves too and not stressing the small things.”
Extra Special Moments
“Probably one of the most memorable things on the day was when I surprised Ben with a special white dove release. When Ben first saw the doves he thought they were at the wrong wedding!
Having my grandfather pass away earlier in the year was quite emotional, in tribute I had a photo and sign set up “if heaven weren’t so far away, we know you would be here today”.”
“Our 3 year old daughter suggested we use her favourite song to walk down the aisle to. Of course, how could we say no! Disney princess Rapunzel’s song ‘I See the Light’.”
