Natasha and Adam, along with their two children, Betty and Teddy, travelled a long journey to their wedding in Little Cove, Noosa. The journey started in 1997 when the UK couple met in their home town. After 15 years, two children and a very long flight, they made their vows in a very intimate ceremony, followed by a carefree reception at Bistro C, Noosa.
While they know it would have been easy to have a huge wedding with all the trappings back in the UK, a holiday to Australia and a Sunshine Coast wedding with only seven guests was exactly what they would call the perfect wedding day. Natasha says her best choice, aside from choosing to have a destination wedding on the Sunshine Coast, was to hire Kim from Weddings of Noosa to coordinate their special day.
Location was key, and the intimacy of Little Cove in Noosa was just perfect for its privacy and a simply beautiful setting. Locals made the day even more special. Well wishers on the beach included a pair of sweet little girls, who made out a heart in stones with the word ‘love’ inside just for them!
Natasha’s idea for styling for her wedding was simply to look not so styled, but to embrace the simplicity of a beach look with a touch of vintage and a splash of bohemian style. The relaxed, intimate, personal, simple and stress-free wedding Natasha and Adam dreamt of was beautifully captured by Lindy Photography.
“I couldn’t believe how having a look around could save us so much money. I will never believe that you have to spend a fortune on a wedding for it to look great. By having a mindset of what you want your wedding to look like makes you buy the right things and not be wasteful and extravagant.”
“We had picked our own wedding playlist for the ceremony. As Adam waited for me ” The Scientist” by Coldplay played a firm favourite of his. “At Last” by Etta James was my entrance song, a very personnel and appropriate words that at last we finally did it!”
“I got Adam cufflinks personally engraved with the exact Latitude and Longitude of the exact point of where we got married on Little Cove beach”

“We like to think we were very lucky to have the most wonderful sunshine as we took our vows and the storm which arrived minutes after of us signing was all part of the fun! I will never forget getting the heel of my Jimmy Choo’s stuck in the boardwalk at Little Cove and a very kind surfer walking past with his board rescuing my shoe. Very surreal, but very funny! Then walking along barefoot in the rain. Only being in Noosa and the beautiful surroundings made this fun at home in England this would been a lot more stressful and not so much fun.“
“We have that special something that you just can’t explain when you find your special person in life!“
