Looking through local Sunshine Coast couple Jess and Scott’s wedding day images, I found myself brought to tears when I hit the ceremony images. The groom’s face full of tears and love as he sees his bride walking down the aisle… Oh no, it’s happening again!
The Hinterland Location
“We wanted to be married outside amongst nature. We were so lucky to find Secrets on the Lake it truly is a magical setting, just breathtaking natural beauty. It really captures all that we could of dreamed of for our special day. We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world; couldn’t have picked a better place. “
Scroll to learn about an upcoming Open Day at Secrets on the Lake and other Sunshine Coast Hinterland venues this coming weekend.
“Seeing my future husband burst into tears when he saw me walk down the aisle. The moment I saw my grandpa sitting in the front row waiting for me to walk down the aisle. He had been very unwell and it was truly one of the highlights of my day seeing him smiling with pride.”
“I’m so glad I took a leap of faith and booked both a photographer and videographer. All the moments captured we will treasure forever. The Bride’s Tree Facebook Group was a huge help, along with Pinterest.
“Honestly I would not change a thing, we had the most wonderful day surrounded by all the special people in our lives.”
