Today's photo of the week just makes me smile so hard. The one thing Julian Beattie knows how to do is capture those genuiune, beautiful, candid moments at weddings.

There just isn't more special than that.  Jules is one of the best photographers around. And we simply must offer up a very large, super-sized congratulations to having one of his weddings published in the latest issue of Cosmo Bride! Well done, Jules. Very well deserved indeed. …

Bohemian Wedding Theme Inspiration

12th January 2012

If you're someone with a bit of artistic flair, have a love for things a little off-centre, and love being creative, a Bohemian wedding theme might be for you. There are no rules when it comes to being a Boho Bride, but there are certain qualities that lend themselves to the general style – wild flowers, nature, colour, mismatched elements, and a lack of structure.  We're all pretty relaxed here on the Sunshine Coast anyway, right? So going boho for your Sunshine Coast wedding is a funky way to give a nod to our easygoing attitude and bring your personality…

Uniquely Styled Palmwoods Wedding

8th January 2012

This time three years ago, Mellesa was walking down the aisle to the father of her beautiful little boy, Isaac (then 17 months).  They were married in a Catholic ceremony at St Catherine Sienna Church, Sippy Downs. Mel had a firm theme in mind when planning their nuptials, all based around her favourite colours and tones – green, navy blue, purple and silver. It sounds like a bit of a mish-mash of a colour scheme when put like that, but with Mel’s eye for detail and great taste, she created a stylish and pretty theme that was a little bit…
