HOW DID YOU AND KIEREN MEET?
Kieren & I met at a good old small country town party . My friends brother was friends with Kieren. We both had the same friends however never met until this 1 party & Since then we haven’t left each others side (10 years ago!). I was still in school, year 11 & Kieren was in his 1st year out of school doing his apprenticeship.

HOW DID KIEREN PROPOSE TO YOU?
Kieren took me away for a surprise trip to Airlie Beach for my birthday. The day of my birthday it was raining so “the plan” couldn’t go ahead. The next day Kieren had arranged for a private helicopter ride over to Whitehaven Beach. We had the whole beach to ourselves as it was first thing in the morning. Kieren asked me to walk down to the water “to take some photos” when actually he was getting the ring out of his wallet! I walked back up the beach and sat down under the umbrella next to the helicopter to which Kieren asked me to stand up for a second. At this point Kieren got down on 1 knee and asked me to marry him. I cried like a baby & said YES!

WHAT DO YOU BOTH ENJOY DOING TOGETHER?
What we enjoy doing together…. we enjoy going for a drive in our Toyota Landcruiser, no real plan on where we are going, just pick a spot and go for a drive. We ultimately love traveling & seeing new things & experiencing new adventures. We are also a pretty chilled couple so a simple walk along the beach is also enjoyed especially with our 2 beagle puppies (Wilson & Benji). We love being outdoors.
We have always been a couple that do things differently to most couples so each year we try to book a helicopter ride somewhere new & plan a holiday to somewhere we have never been before.

Robyn and Kieren are getting married towards the end of 2020 at Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
It’s going to be a beautiful day

Noosa North Shore Wedding s are under rated.
Beautiful beaches, great venues and endless locations for photos to choose from.
Aimee and Mitchell set up their wedding at First Cutting Noosa North Shore.
I knew these guys would be a bit emotional so I was ready for it. I had the pleasure of working with some incredible vendors (check out Aimee and Mitchell’s Dream team list above) but first time working with Kirsty Spencer Celebrant. Kirsty wrote a ceremony tailored to Aimee and Mitchell and nailed it and I hope to be able to work with her again as she was a lot of fun. She told Aimee and Mitchell’s story which represented who they are and captured their personalities.
I just want to make a special to Aimee’s make up artist Sian Howard Makeup whom I have worked with before and love her. When Aimee was just about ready to walk out the door Sian reapplied lippy and then sprayed sunscreen over Aimee so she wouldn’t burn.
I loved this extra special touch Sian had done.

I asked Aimee a few questions about her wedding day below

Can you give any tips for couples on how to prepare for your wedding day?

Organisation and lots of lists, best thing we did was bought a wedding planner book and started planning early. When it comes to the actual day best advice I was given was “doesn’t matter what happens or if anything goes wrong, as long as you are married to Mitch at the end of today that’s all the matters and what you are here for”

Were you nervous about walking down the aisle?

I was so nervous , not because I was about to see Mitch but because I knew everyone’s eyes would be on me. My dad actually grabbed my leg in the car and told me to stop shaking.

What were you feeling walking down the aisle looking at your husband/wife to be?

I was overjoyed with happiness and so much love

Was the groom/bride waiting at the alter emotional when he/she saw you for the first time? How did that make you feel?

I knew Mitch would be emotional but I was not expecting the reaction I got from him. He was really emotional which made me emotional and I just wanted to give him a big hug

What was your favourite moment from your beautiful wedding day?

Our favourite moment was definitely seeing each other at the aisle

If you had a bridal party why did you choose who you chose?

We choose important people to us and who we know will be around for a long time to stand by us on one of our most important days. They have all been there for us through thick and thin

How would you describe your overall wedding day experience?

Our wedding day was nothing short of amazing, it lived up to all the hype and we had the most perfect, relaxed and beautiful day

Tell me about your wedding dress

I had my heart set on a long sleeve, low back dress for a long time, it was just a matter of finding one. My friend came across GLL and I fell in love with my dress online. I wasn’t interested in going to any other dress shops or trying other dresses on until I went to Grace Love Laces, it was the first dress I got to put on and I teared up as soon as I had it on, I knew it was the one. I tried a few more dresses on but nothing compared to the MAI. It was perfect, long sleeve, low back, beautiful lace with a split at the front which was prefect for the beach. It was the most comfortable dress and so easy to move and dance in all night!

Did anything go wrong on your wedding day? Crazy story?

Not actually on the wedding day, but Mitch decided to take my sister and I for a spin in the wedding car on the beach 2 days before the wedding and got us bogged up to the axle, he had my sister and I trying to push him out but there was no way we were pushing it out and the tide was almost high. I had to call my step dad, dad and uncle and get them to come down and snatch him out

Where did you escape to for your honeymoon? Would you recommend it to other couples?

We went to Thailand and we stayed in Phuket and Koh Samui. It was a great place to relax and unwind

Vaningen Family Holiday from Victoria

The Vaningen family recently holidayed at Noosa from Victoria and booked their family session through Travelshoot.
We had a great afternoon playing in the sand, water and air ha ha.
It took me a little bit to gain trust from their little ones but once they were all good with me they talked my ear off.
Glad they had fabulous weather while they were visiting!

I had been waiting all year for Chelsea and Damien’s wedding at The Rocks Yandina. I met Chelsea at the Sunshine Coast Bridal Expo where she entered my wedding photography package raffle and WON!
After my first meeting with Chelsea and Damien I was excited about their wedding day.
Getting to know them both I got to hear how they met at their workplace. They were both working in Brisbane at the Gabba where a mutual friend had introduced them, from there they say the rest is history.
They both love their AFL, love to roadtrip as they live in Townsville they visit their family on the Sunshine Coast whenever they can, they also love the outdoors spending time with each other having a coffee at a local coffee shop or out exploring.
I caught up with these guys are few times leading up to their wedding starting with their engagement session and then to go over their timeline for the wedding.
On the big day it was raining as I pulled up to where the boys had been getting ready. The sun was shining over the beach which you could see from back balcony and the boys got ready for their photos. Damien seemed relaxed and excited for it all to happen, as I left them be they were battling it out on the playstation.
Over with the girls they were just about to finish hair and makeup it was raining a little and supposed to clear for the afternoon. After gifts and cards exchanged the girls changed into their dresses, sipped on a champers and had some photos together before I left for the ceremony. Chelsea was also quite relaxed and excited. No worry of rain in sight.
Wedding ceremony went perfectly thanks to Kath Tilly Celebrant then on we went with photos and then on to party at reception.
If you haven’t seen Too The Skies Band you should definitely check them out. They were brilliant and kept the dancefloor packed all night long.

A few questions I asked Chelsea and Damien after their wedding:

It was relaxed and full of fun!

Tell me about your wedding dress

The favourite part of my dress was the back of it and the lace.

Did anything go wrong on your wedding day? Crazy story?

Nothing went wrong I couldn’t believe it
