Whimsical Garden Party Wedding at Yandina Station

12th July 2012

On the morning of Carly and Anthony’s Sunshine Coast wedding, Carly’s lovely bridesmaid, Kayla, made the lovely gesture of getting a cooked breakfast going. Eggs and bacon were on the sizzle, when an oil fire started… and that was the end of breakfast. The girls resorted to ice-cream and champagne for breakfast after that. And that was the last (not so) bad thing to happen that day. Despite a bit of rain in the morning, the afternoon cleared up beautifully, and this lovely young couple were able to be married under a spectacular fig tree in a whimsical garden party…

2nd July 2012

When thinking of a theme for your wedding, it doesn't all have to be about the colours and the bombonieres, and how you will decorate the joint up.

Bohemian Beach Wedding Reception

13th May 2012

When we put together our first edition of The Bride's Tree free online bridal magazine, we were absolutely floored when we saw all of the amazing photos Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Shane Shepherd, produced from our Bohemian Beach Wedding styled shoot. It was a real pain, actually, and resulted in much heartache. Quite inconsiderate of him, really. I mean, did he not foresee us agonising over which would make the pages of the magazine?! We absolutely would have doubled the size of the magazine if we could have in order to fit in all the images, but instead we breathed a…
