Seaside Celebration Wedding Inspiration

26th May 2015

To make a seaside wedding into a real celebration, take one pretty bride, add some pretty-coloured flowers, a bright lip, and some carefree tresses.  Using bright pops of colour in the bridal bouquet and flower crown and a pink lip is a perfect look for a fun beach bride. Throw some large balloons and confetti in the mix and you’ve got yourself a colourful, happy and fresh wedding look!  Photos by Stacey Schramm Photography Pink lips and warm toned natural eyes are a perfect pairing in this wedding makeup design by Sally Townsend Makeup Artistry.

Real Wedding: Katie & Anthony in Caloundra

5th February 2015

Away from the prying eyes of their 70 wedding guests, Katie and Anthony shared their own private moment on their wedding day with a “first look” prior to their wedding ceremony. It is non-traditional, but a growing trend in weddings that we are quite keen on, as a matter of fact. It’s really sweet to have that intimate moment between two people, who are about to become husband and wife. This pair, who met on Australian dating site, eHarmony, are definitely not ones to be tied down by tradition. They put their own personal flair on their Caloundra wedding day…

Classic Beauty for the Beach Bride

3rd February 2015

A beach wedding can be as casual or as classically elegant as you see fit, lovely Sunshine Coast brides. Take our gorgeous model, Kirra, here. Sporting a relaxed chignon hair style and natural, but striking makeup, the elegance is amplified in a couture gown by Erin Clare Couture.  “Ella” was created with laser cut lace and layers of soft tulle. The illusion neckline and plunging back are delicately embellished with this unique lace. Adding to the polished bridal look, an exquisite posy bouquet of cream and dusty pink roses with dusty miller leaves, and an arrangement of fresh florals in Kirra’s…

Real Wedding: Chelcie & Joseph at Moffat Beach + Maroochydore

25th August 2014

Ex-pats Chelcie and Joseph originaly met in their hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand. Chelcie was a just 19 years old at the time. 12 years and three children later, the happily committed couple made the decision to officiate their relationship with a wedding ceremony.  I absolutely love Chelcie’s heart-melting words about marrying the love of her life after having long ago committed to one another, and the unexpected feelings that came along with a marriage she never expected or aspired to.  Chelcie and Joseph were the super lucky winners of a $5,000 wedding package, which certainly helped towards the wedding…

Real Wedding: Meagan & Will at Clio’s

1st August 2013

  Meagan and Will were married in May of 2011, on what they describe as being an absolutely perfect day, both weather-wise and in terms of everything running smoothly. A dream come true for Meagan, who only wanted to be able to enjoy her big day without the worry of things going awry. How did she pull it off? 16 months of careful planning, my friends. Their classic romantic theme with roses, and pearls and lace detail, is a lesson in elegance and timelessness. But of course this is no typical couple – as you will see in the absolutely…
