Real Wedding: Leah and Junior in Noosa

22nd July 2014

We have seen some of the most beautiful Noosa weddings on the planet lately. Well, on the Sunshine Coast. On the Noosa. Ahem. The point is, today’s wedding is a prime example of a stunningly gorgeous wedding in Noosa. 


Was it a day of blue skies and glistening water? No. Was there sunshine through the clouds, giving it a heavenly glow appearance? Not so much. It was actually pouring with rain. Oh, did it pour. So the bride and groom’s Plan B ceremony location was put in place. They utilised cute clear umbrellas, the bride loved. And when there was a break in the rain, Bayleigh Vedelago took photos throughout Noosa, and the cloud cover made for perfect conditions for gorgeous photos. 

Their 73 guests then joined them for a reception at Berado’s Bar & Restaurant, with awesome music, delicious food and gorgeous styling by Splash Events

Florals by Willow Bud and makeup by Natalie Hunter Makeup Artist

My sister came to pick out my dress, then we surprised my mum with it when she arrived back from overseas.”

My three best friends and my sister were bridesmaids.”

It was an incredible moment to have my Dad walk me down the aisle, there was a sense of calm and silence just before we walked and it was an amazing reflection of what we have been through as father and daughter and what was ahead of me in the future.”

We wrote our own vows and is was amazing to finally hear them.”

My wonderful husband purchased one of my favourite artworks and I bought him a very special Mido watch.”

Don’t stress about the weather; clear umbrellas are just as cute.”
