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…

Simple Maroochy Waterfront Wedding

7th July 2013

Brisbane couple, Anthony and Tracey, met at a festival in their home city. Five loving years later, they were engaged and in 12 months they planned their own wedding with finesse.

Simplicity was also achieved by having their ceremony…
