Spirit House Wedding, Yandina
Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia
Ceremony location: Spirit House, Yandina
Reception location: Spirit House, Yandina
Celebrant: Ty Sutherland – Ty The Knot Noosa
Flowers: Wendy’s Flowers and Event Hire
Spirit House is a bit of a hidden treasure when it comes to weddings! Its the perfect spot for that small intimite wedding, very private, tranquil and not to mention the food is incredible! The staff are truly helpful and the manager Jessica is onto any questions you have about having your wedding there.
Jaime and Owen had a gorgeous little ceremony which Ty Sutherland – Ty The Knot Noosa, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Jaime wanted a stress/fuss free wedding and its exactly what it was, it was all about them, their babies, family and friends celebrating their marriage.
Jaime was extremely nervous about being the centre of attention and generally most brides are, I kept reassuring her how amazing she looked and she did, she was also a bit nervous about having their photos…….pfftttt really have at look at them, does she look nervous……Full of confidence, so many laughs. They were a dream to photograph, hardly any direction at all! I think she loved it just quietly.
Spirit House has amazing photo opportunities around the property and will be expanding over the next year with new bar area, the food is amazing and it sets the scene for a relaxing occasion!

An afternoon with Jaime, Owen, Sophie and Oscar
Most who know me or have booked me for a wedding knows I like to do a complimentary love (engagement) session, not only to give my clients some beautiful photos but to see how they are in front of the camera before their big day! And most times I ask them to bring their children along if they have children. Well yesterday was no different except Jaime was very nervous and feeling a little self conscious. I don’t know why she looked amazing!
We met at Point Arkwright, Coolum, Queensland and made our way down to the beach and found our spot and got straight into it as they had small children. And man did they nail the session, we laughed, played games, snuggled and laughed a whole lot more.
Here is a snippet of what we captured yesterday

Julie and Tony married at Spirit House, Yandina
Ceremony location: Spirit House, Yandina
Reception location: Spirit House, Yandina
Gown Designer: Kylie J Bridal, Melbourne
Flowers: Wendy’s Flowers and Event Hire
What a gorgeous venue Spirit House, to have an intimate small wedding at, plus its one of my most favourite restaurants to eat at too! I just loved everything about Julie and Tony’s wedding, they had a small intimate ceremony and reception with their closest family and friends most which had travelled interstate to celebrate with them.
Julie looked absolutely stunning in couture gown designed by Kylie J Bridal in Melbourne, Julie and Tony’s children made up the bridal with one of Tony’s son’s unable to make the ceremony due to being in the Army, but half way through the ceremony Julie surprised Tony by telling him that she had managed to get him on day release and he was on his way, beautiful surprise and not a dry eye in the house.
Julie was walked down the aisle by her son and Julie’s niece Annalise sang as they made their way to Tony, Annalise has the most amazing voice and I believe she was on one of the singing contest shows….AMAZING!!!
After Julie and Tony’s beautifully presented ceremony by Linda we walked around the grounds of the Spirit House and photographed Julie and Tony with their families and then carried on to photograph the 2 of them alone, while they were having a bit of chat about their morning and what they had been up to I was clicking away and got some pretty beautiful shots of them both which I think show who they are perfectly.
After the photos we headed back to the ceremony area and i continued to photograph everyone as they are, catching up with each other having a drink and a laugh! Once we headed into reception area, during food service Tony’s son had arrived so off we went for some more family photos with the complete crew. Absolutely beautiful people and it was such a pleasure to photograph your special day Julie and Tony, my best wishes and love to you all
