Simple Maroochy Waterfront Wedding

7th July 2013

Brisbane couple, Anthony and Tracey, met at a festival in their home city. Five loving years later, they were engaged and in 12 months they planned their own wedding with finesse. A Sunshine Coast wedding with style by the water was the order of the day. 

Keeping things elegant and simple was their plan from the outset. They achieved this by having a guest list on the shorter side, with just 66 close friends and family members attending. This allowed the newlyweds to spend more time with each guest on the day. Simplicity was also achieved by having their ceremony and reception in one place – Ebb Waterfront Restaurant. No travel, no fuss. And what’s more, their wedding night accommodation was just upstairs at the Duporth Riverside Apartments, which boast amazing views of the Maroochy River.
