Real Wedding: Amy & Joe at Pt. Cartwright

26th November 2014

Amy says she fell in love with Joe at first sight. It was certainly was a fateful weekend away from Kingaroy for Joe to Amy’s hometown of Toowoomba. Who knew he would meet his future wife? 

Eight years later Amy married Joe in a blush pink bridal gown at beautiful Point Cartwright beach with 90 of their family and friends in tow. It was an overcast day with showers, but it didn’t dampen the happy couple’s spirits at all. In fact Amy says the cloud cover made for amazing photos and she’s grateful for her wedding day weather. 

Said perfect photos were taken by the very talented Renee Towers

“One of the most important parts of the planning stages for me was to have my mother with me when I first tried on my wedding dress. That was a very special moment.”

“I must admit I spent many hours on Google and pinterest and of course the amazing brides tree website searching for inspiration. Once I had my colour pallet everything seemed to come together from there. I really had a mixture of themes.”

“My best friend Tammy read out a beautiful reading during the ceremony, I also included my beautiful nieces in the bridal party as flower girls.”

“The first thing that I booked was our ceremony location and our photographer. My ceremony was so important to me. I wanted our commitment to each other to be memorable and special. I also wanted a photographer who stood back and captured the day as it unfolded.”

“We complement each other in many different ways, he makes me laugh all the time and we are always there to support each other no matter what. We are inseparable and I love that!”

“Luckily for us the weather held out just long enough to get photos done at the beautiful Point Cartwright at Buddina.”
