Tradition: Unity Candle

4th March 2012

If you are looking for ways to make your wedding ceremony special, you may like to include a tradition or custom like this very popular one. The Unity candle is a large (usually white) candle, which is often wrapped in paper etched with the names of the bridal couple and the date of their wedding. The tradition is practiced in many western countries – Australia certainly being one of them. It typically goes down like this: a member from each side of the family (usually a parent, sibling or close relative) lights a taper candle at the beginning of the…

Film of the Week

3rd March 2012

Why not? Such a simple phrase, and one that could be, (along with a group of well-meaning friends), the catalyst for many a young couple ending up right where Tom and Kelly now are.  Every bride I interview for our real wedding blog posts is asked how they met their husband, and I have to say it's my favourite part. It's what I ask first, and I absolutely thrill at hearing the stories of how two people, who came to love each other enough to want to be together forever and ever, first encountered one another.  This particular story really…

Photo of the Week

There is something really special about this photo by Lindy Photography. The beautiful bride's lace veil and intricately designed dress are spectacularly photographed by this awesome Sunshine Coast wedding photographer. We love how Lindy has captured the serene look on the bride's face. No nerves walking down the aisle for this bride, that's for sure! The composition and lighting in this photograph is to die for. Of course, this is to be expected when we're talking about Lindy Photography, who has been photographing weddings from Noosa to Caloundra and beyond for a good many years. Lindy brings a wealth of knowledge…

Bridal Spa Party at Ikatan Day Spa

1st March 2012

The Bride's Tree's Jenny finally got to do something she has been talking about for gazonkers – visit the amazing Ikatan Day Spa in Noosa, and here is what she had to say of her experience…  "When I arrived at Ikatan Day Spa, Noosa, I could hear the most relaxing music being played and then when I approached reception, I was greeted by one of the loveliest receptionist’s ever.  She sat me down and gave me a glass of Strawberry & Creams tea, which was DIVINE!  Honestly, I feel like my Ikatan Spa experience could have ended there and I…

Wedding Theme: Yellow Inspiration

27th February 2012

  We have been experiencing a bit of dreariness across the Sunshine Coast lately. Certainly not living up to our name weather-wise! So The Bride's Tree team decided to bring a bit of sunny your way in the form of this gorgeous yellow inspiration board for your Sunshine Coast wedding. Varying shades in one colour scheme work brilliantlly with yellow, in fact it actually works a lot better than a perfectly matching pallette. Complimentary colours are bold or deep purples with cream to fold in a vintage feel, or bright yellow with a pretty sky blue and bright white (as…

Earthy Garden Wedding on $10,000 Budget

26th February 2012

  Your first love may not end up being the man you marry. However, he may be responsible for you meeting the man you marry, as was the case with Tammy and Mark. Who would have known that quiet, well-mannered, mysterious fellow she met 11 years ago would end up being the love of her life? Tammy says she had a crush on tall, dark and handsome Mark from day one, but it was not until many years later that she found out the feeling was mutual. Their contrasting personalities work splendidly together with Tammy’s bright and bubbly ying complimenting…

Film of the Week

25th February 2012

Welcome to our very first Film of the Week! As you may already be aware, I post a Photo of the Week each Saturday, which features Sunshine Coast wedding photography at its very best. Now, I believe wedding cinematography will be equally as valuable to you and your husband (children, grandchildren….) as years go on, so this concept was born.  These days, many wedding cinematography packages include the editing of a "highlights film." This is simply a short, usually three to five-minute film, showing a snapshot, if you will, of the day itself. Gone are the days of wind-blown videocam…
