Real Wedding: Renai & Paul in Noosa

28th July 2014

Exactly one year to the day after they became engaged, Renai and Paul married at Hidden Grove, and then 104 of their family and friends joined them for a reception at Noosa Boathouse Restaurant. The date they chose, also happened to be Renai’s Nan and late Pop’s 60th wedding anniversary. Aww! 

Renai and Paul’s bridal fashion and styling is to die for. Alan Hughes Photography caught every special moment along the journey of their very special wedding day. 

Most Special Part

Being able to share our wedding day with my lovely Nan and late Pops 60th wedding anniversary.


We are off to Thailand. We didn’t go on a honeymoon straight away, firstly so I could extend the ‘wedding process’ as long as I could and to relax the week after with family and friends who were still here.

Family Helpers

My mum and sister helped with everything, we had weekends together dress shopping and planning which was so memorable and helpful! My sister Carly helped me out with all aspects, I could not have done it without her.

Group Holiday

We had family and friends stay up here with us on the coast for about two weeks… most amazing two weeks of our lives to have everyone we love with us for so long.

Get an amazing photographer, we love being able to look back at those memories.
