Tara + Rob’s Surprise Wedding at Pier33 Mooloolaba
It’s always a little bit exciting when a wedding enquiry comes through to my email, but I really love when I have enquiries for surprise weddings at an engagement party!
Tara and I had been in touch and we talked about how their surprise wedding was to announced. How was it all planned to make sure the secret wasn’t let out, who knew and who didn’t!
Once I arrived to the venue Pier33 at Mooloolaba and walked upstairs, I was blown away by Tara’s styling. The theme was tropical and immediately I felt like I was in a paradise location! We have gorgeous views of Mooloolaba wharf with all the boats on the water, tropical plants and flowers, drinks served in coconuts. It was very welcoming with a relaxing vibe and didn’t scream ‘Surprise we are getting married’!
Once all the guests had arrived, Tara disappeared for a little bit to change into her Fame and Partners gown while everyone was gathered to the deck.
After the Pierr33 housekeeping was announced Bruno Mars – Marry you came on and everyone was not really knowing what was going on, then out walked Tara with her dad!
There were cheers, clapping and tears, lots of tears!
After exchanging vows and rings Tara and Rob mingled and danced the night away with their family and friends. We didn’t have a Bride and Groom photos as they are going to honeymoon in May to Ayres Rock. Tara knows her way with a camera, she will set up the camera self timer for their shots! I am looking forward to seeing these, I’m pretty sure they will be incredible!
Although Tara styled the event herself and with the help of their families, there were a few suppliers that helped bring it all together Chocolate2chilli made the cake, Posy Co for flowers, Silvana Marin Celebrant, music by Caribbean Arts and Entertainment Company, Tara’s hair by Haras &Co, Tara’s makeup by her sister in law Kate.
Thankyou Tara and rob for booking me to photograph your special, it was a load of fun!
Congratulations again! Can’t wait to catch up soon and see your images from NT
