Roxie and Ben have always been drawn to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland’s beauty. It was natural to picture their contemporary wedding ceremony venue in amongst the green hills.
Roxie went with a romantic contemporary bridal fashion and style. From her glam, yet relaxed half-up-half-down hair style with bling to her lace overlay dress with beading. The bridesmaids wore mis-matched dresses in burgundy to match Roxie’s bridal bouquet.
The lovely bride herself was kind enough to share some details from her special day…
Why is Ben The One?
My life makes more sense with him in it. I couldn’t find any conflicts as to why I couldn’t love him forever. I found my soul mate in Ben.
We were living in Rockhampton and we had taken a two-week holiday to the Sunshine Coast. I had no idea, Ben had it all planned out. We went on a romantic picnic to Maleny Botanical Gardens as we took in the scenery Ben got down on one knee. I said, “Yes are you sure?!” By far still our most memorable holiday. Loved it so much we moved here.

Graeme really is amazing. Our photos are pure magic! (He was) so professional on our day; he captured the most raw memories. WildChild Cakes are beautiful and (there was) so much cake, and so yum! Best value for money! The Lakehouse food was beyond delicious. Service on the night was above and beyond. Serving size ensured no one was left hungry.
