After 12 months and 20 days of careful planning (but who’s counting?), Natalie and Josh tied the knot overlooking the Noosa River. They were married in the park beside the restaurant venue as 100 guests celebrated their love and union. Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar is renowned for its delicious Italian cuisine and serene Noosa River setting.
Natalie has shared her memories of her big day with us…
“I wore a brooch of my Grandma’s on the front of my bouquet. This meant so much to me after losing her only months before our wedding. I knew that she was with me all day!
“I bought Josh a watch which he wore on the day, and Josh bought me a toiletries bag from The Daily Edited with my new initials!
“Our family and friends were integral on our wedding day, as they made our dreams become a reality by decorating our venue just as we had imagined.”
“Our main priority was to find a venue that was convenient for our guests, with a vibrant atmosphere, and amazing food and drinks – I think we achieved just that.
Noosa Waterfront Restaurant are the masters of incredible Italian food. We opted for share plates for entrée and main, with cheese and macaron towers for dessert.”
