Joanna and Giles Engagement Session, Point Cartwright
Most times when I book a wedding couple we meet over coffee and go through collections and just chat in general and I get a pretty good idea of what they like, their personalities and their relationship!
Also sometimes it isn’t possible to meet straight up and a couple books with me and we catch up at a later date. Joanna and Giles are getting married in September and we caught up for chats and coffee. We planned their engagement session for July.
Point Cartwright was the place for it to happen we had to reschedule a couple of times due to sickness but the afternoon we went out couldn’t have been more perfect, well we could have done with a little less wind. The sunset was so pretty as they are mostly during July/August!
These two enjoyed lots of laughter and snuggles trying to keep warm.
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.

Bek loves Callum
Sunshine Coast Engagement Session
Wild Horse Mountain, Glass House Mountains
Imagine attending a wedding expo and winning $5000 towards your wedding!
That’s what happened to Bek and Callum. Whilst attending Sunshine Coast Wedding Expo in May 2017. Bek bought her ticket online, turned up and waited for the draw for the prize and when her name was call out, the look on her face was priceless!
Now she had $5000 to spend on her wedding just for buying her ticket and being present while the prize was drawn, we had a quick chat and decided we would make a date to catch up for coffee so I could meet Callum and from there wet hit it off!
We have been keeping in touch regularly and finally got around to organising their engagement session which Bek requested we use the Pine Forest at Wild Horse Mountain location! I had no idea where this area was so after a little drive around I found this spot.
I love it! It has the Pine Forest on one side which is off a dirt road and wait for it, a pineapple farm on the opposite side, what more could you want in a location?
Once we started the session I gave Bek and Callum a couple of prompts to help them relax a little bit and create the mood we wanted for their session, they were being all romantic and connecting emotionally with each other.
I was wanting to try something a little different with them and brought some Coloured Smoke Bombs with me and it was time to light them up for a bit of a different effect, and I love what we created.
I cannot wait for their wedding day in July at Maleny Botanic Gardens. Two and a half months and counting down.
To win $5000 like Bek and Callum visit the next Sunshine Coast Wedding Expo at Maroochy RSL, Sunday 20th May 2018 from 11am to 3pm.

I was a little bit excited that Courtnay and Andrzej’s wedding day had arrived. Courtnay had been counting down until their big day!
Surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends, Courtnay and Andrzej were married under the Jacaranda tree at Spicers Clovelly Estate by Karen Miles Celebrant, who wrote the most perfect ceremony. Karen has also married Courtnay’s cousin a few years earlier and I could see why they asked Karen to officiate their commitment!
With a wonderful team of professional suppliers, which a couple were very talented friends of the Bride and Groom their day ran perfectly!
It was an absolute pleasure to be part of Courtnay and Andrzej’s wedding day!
Bestest Wishes on your new adventure together!

”A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person, we’re safe in our own paradise.”
– by Richard Bach
Cindy and Bill, WOW where to start. This wedding was jammed packed full of fun!
Cindy and Bill’s wedding at The Old Dairy in Maleny was one I don’t think I will forget for a long time. The guys got ready at The Old Dairy as they were to setup for the wedding. When I arrived they had just finished setting up, I caught them having a bit of fun with the outdoor entertainment as you will see in the images.
Cindy and the girls were getting ready and Cindy and Bill’s place and were pretty relaxed. Once they were ready we stepped outside. Cindy and Bill live on a horse stud and when Cindy walked outside one of the horse’s went crazy, so Cindy went to calm him down (you see when you scroll down to the images). It definitely was a beautiful moment!
Cindy and Bill exchanged gifts, Bill made his own card for Cindy (Cindy is a scrapbook lover), they read out each others cards and it was goosebumpy stuff!
We had Grandmothers waiting for Cindy when she arrived to The Old Dairy, they were part of Cindy’s bridal party and were escorted down to ceremony by Cindy’s brother.
Keep a look out for Bill’s face when he see’s his beauty walk towards him, one of the best moments I ever get to see at weddings.
Jay wrote a fabulous ceremony which included a handfasting ceremony that had their family and friends included in the wedding.
Once the party began we quickly went for photos and back to reception where Cindy surprised Bill with a choreographed dance she learnt just for him!
Cindy and Bill honeymooned in Thailand!
Thankyou both Cindy and Bill for sharing your special day with me
