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…

Through the Looking Glass

14th December 2014

Come with us on a journey as we go through the looking glass… This ceremony styling is like something from  a fairytale, and in the incredible hinterland setting of wedding venue, Flaxton Gardens, it is a sight to behold. Peering through the looking glass doors to the outrageously stunning view of the Sunshine Coast hinterland beyond… hola perfection.  Autumn colours have been used throughout the styling by talented sister duo, Style le Aisle, and followed through in the florals. We love this ceremony styling for a Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding in autumn.  So go on, take a little adventure through…

Real Wedding: Cecile & Trent at Flaxton Gardens

11th December 2014

Cecile and Trent may just be the cutest couple we’ve seen. It definitely takes a very strong couple to work together and live together, as these two events planners do.  Trent proposed to Cecile in 2013 just as they both completed the Kokoda Trail. They wed in a beautiful ceremony at Flaxton Gardens, following it up with some sensational location shots around the hinterland in Flaxton and Maleny. They then head back to Flaxton Gardens to rejoin their 105 guests for a relaxed reception. Jennifer Oliphant was there to capture every moment of their special day.  “I wanted a Tiffany…

Real Wedding: Bridget & Jordan in Maleny

19th August 2014

Bridget and Jordan made the sweetest Maleny bride and groom. Their wedding had a timeless simple elegance about it. And it sounds like Bridget and her mother and sister had an awful lot of fun on various crafternoons in the lead up to create some DIY prettiness for the big day.  This lovely Sunshine Coast hinterland wedding was held exactly four years to the day after the couple’s first date in North Queensland, where they were both working at the time. It is not difficult to see how much they adore one another and belong together. Just take a stroll…

Real Wedding: Louise + Michael at Ilkley

20th July 2014

Marketing Manager Louise and Engineer Michael first met in primary school, when their families lived across the road from one another. Having known each other for such a long time, it’s no wonder Louise describes mutual respect as their greatest strength as a couple.  While the couple of five years lives locally, their family and friends travelled from Victoria to spend some time soaking up the Sunshine Coast. Oh, and of course celebrating the marital union of the very gorgeous Louise and Michael.  Jennifer Oliphant  was the couple’s chosen photographer, capturing their day in a most beautiful manner. The wedding…

DIY Kawana Beach Wedding

3rd April 2014

Lovely Sunshine Coast bride, Megan, planned a beautiful vintage beach-themed wedding on a budget. With a little help from family and friends, her DIY efforts started with the invitations, continued with putting together bombonieres and even went so far as arranging the flowers and hair styling.  //// The pair were married at Kawana beach under a bamboo canopy the bride and her father constructed together, and then held their modestly catered reception in their church hall. As a very sweet touch, the couple surprised the bride’s father, a long-time Kombi van enthusiast with a super rad mode of transportation from Deluxe…

Upstyles for Brunette Brides

7th March 2013

Last week we brought you a fine selection of bridal upstyles for blondes, so today we thought we had better do the brunette brides a solid and show you some gorgeous styles for our dark-haired beauties as well.  There is nothing more elegant than glossy locks expertly curled, twisted, braided and pinned atop a bride’s crown for her wedding day. Whether it be a high structured bun, a low chignon, or some cascading curls pulled to the side for a striking asymmetrical style, each of these pretty bridal hair styles has their place in a Sunshine Coast wedding. We love…
