Local yoga instructor/hairdresser, Elizabeth, married her love of six years, Civil Engineer, David, on Noosa North Shore beach. They then followed up their nuptials with a catered marquee reception on Noosa Camping Grounds.
Elizabeth took on as many tasks as she could, putting her DIY talents to the tesxt – even adding handmade flowers to her own wedding dress! Now that is a committed and confident bride!
“The best piece of advice I was given, which I wish I had remembered, was if you see something you love and it’s a good price, just get it. So often I searched and searched only to end up with the first thing I had found.”
“Without our family and friends our wedding just would not have been possible, my bridesmaids were always helping search the net for prices and ideas, I was always on the phone to my mum for help picking things up I’d found somewhere.”
“We paid for everything our wedding party needed to look fabulous on the day!”

DIY: We did as much as we could ! We made our wedding arch, I handmade the little flowers we attached. We also made a beautiful bridal table cloth that was so fluffy and made of tulle. For the girls and I, I made little jeweled foot anklets for the beach, I also made cute cushion covers for the outdoor furniture, and cute signs directing people where to go. Oh and I also made the flower that I attached to my dress.
