Luxury Estate Marquee Wedding

A Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding is always a beautiful, elegant affair. I guess that’s why so many brides and grooms from all over the world choose this area to say their I Dos every single week. Yet there is one photographer, who always makes each and every wedding he photographs a unique artistic experience in the finished product. 

Luke Going Photography is one of our absolute favourites, as he has this amazing eye, capturing his subjects in the most unpredictable fashion. Just take a look through Anita and Simon’s wedding at Spicers Clovelly Estate in Montville and you will see what we mean. 

Anita and Simon wanted to make the most of their special day, so they got started early with an 11am ceremony at the super cute Good Shepherd Witta Lutheran Church. Then, the newlyweds and their 120 guests enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Spicers Clovelly Estate, an exclusive luxury estate, which boasts some of the best food around.

Perfect sunshine for their marquee wedding ensured they had the perfect, relaxed day they had been dreaming of and planning to the last detail. They followed up their wedding day with a month-long honeymoon dream holiday travelling to New York, Buenos Aires and Tahiti. Lucky ducks!

“We wanted a relaxed and elegant wedding with a classic colour palette”  

“We had an 11am wedding so we could enjoy a long lunch with lovely food and wine, followed by dancing into the evening.”

“Our love of champagne and the ocean binds us together as a couple.”
