Real Wedding: Emma and Jacob in Noosa and Ilkley

18th January 2015

The best of both worlds – a chapel wedding in the country, followed by gorgeous Noosa beach bridal party photos at Little Cove, and a marquee reception at a private Noosa residence. I have to say, that sounds really quite a perfect wedding day! 

Emma and Jacob planned a gorgeous affair from top to bottom, with stacks of DIY details and a country feel that we are just mad for. Raving mad to be precise. Their ceremony took place at AnnaBella, The Wedding Chapel, in Ilkley after a 12-month engagement, during which family and friends pitched in to help make invitations, decorations and anything else they could manage to help keeps costs down. 

Take a stroll through Emma and Jacob’s wedding albumyou won’t be sorry! It features wedding photography brilliance of the Jennifer Oliphant variety.
