Imagine winning $5000 towards your wedding!
That’s what happened to Bek and Callum. I met Bek when she attended the Sunshine Coast Wedding Expo in May 2017.
I was so excited for this beautiful couple when Bek mentioned they won the jackpot that day.
Not long after the expo I met with Bek and Callum for coffee to talk all tings weddings and to see how they were going with all the planning.
We also chatted about how they met.
Callum and I knew each other as kids and went to the same primary school, but we only started dating in 2012.
After five years together, Callum popped the question whilst we were holidaying in Vietnam. From the moment we returned from our loved up trip, all I could think about was wedding planning.
Bek and Callum were married at Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World, their ceremony was written by Peter Willington Weddings who summed Bek and Callum in one sentence!
It takes about 30 seconds being in the presence of Callum and Bek to realise that they have that love like you see in rom coms, that’s Callum and Bek, thats real love!
That one sentence gave me goosebumps as it just summed them up perfectly!
Bek and Callum’s A-Team for the day were a breeze to work with!

Kathy + Jarred’s Maleny Wedding
When Kathy’s email came through all I seen at first was ceremony in Maleny and reception at Brouhaha Brewery!
It’s no secret I love a good beer and when I have a Bride who also loves a beer well I think it’s a good match!
I gave Kathy a call to discuss details about their plans for the wedding I was really looking forward something a little different. Kathy and Jarred booked a rural property in Reeseville, Maleny to have their ceremony.
It is a beautiful Airbnb property with a country style house with lush gardens and green fields behind the house where the ceremony was to be held.
When I walked in to where Kathy was getting ready, she met me with a huge smile and an excited look on her face!
Jarred’s face watching his beautiful Bride walk towards him was priceless, this part of the wedding is one of my favourites as the Groom’s watch in awe of their lady’s beauty and grace as she gets closer to him.
Toni Collett Celebrant was officiating the wedding and wrote a heartwarming, authentic and humorous ceremony for Kathy and Jarred, during Jarred’s vows he became a little emotional and stumbled on getting his words out.
Once the ceremony and photos were over we drove to a couple of locations in Maleny for photos with Kathy and Jarred which included One Tree Hill and then we arrived at Brouhaha Brewery to finish of with a couple of photos inside the brewery with the big Vats. Not before Kathy and Jarred pulling their first beer for the day! Not a bad first attempt either
She dances to the songs in her head,
speaks with the rhythm of her heart,
and loves from the depths of her soul.
