Organise a wedding in less than 5 weeks on the Sunshine Coast when you live in Brisbane – easy! Well that’s what Belinda and Ben achieved and it went off without a hitch. Exchanging vows in the beautiful grounds of the Hyatt Coolum on the Sunshine Coast was a day Belinda and Ben will remember forever. With Bestman, Dallas, whispering in Ben’s ear “Ben, she’s beautiful, wow, she’s beautiful” as Belinda walked down the aisle and we all agreed. In a gown of ivory silk Belinda married her best friend of the past 5 years in front of family and friends. Choosing traditional vows they promised to love, honour and cherish.
“Could we just stand in the corner and quickly exchange vows and then have the big party” was all Lyn and Neale wanted for their wedding day, not to be as their friends would have been furious. Their newly renovated home was beautifully decorated with lanterns and orchids (for all the ladies). Lyn and Neale greeted their guests and when all were assembled Lyn changed into her “wedding dress” to be walked down the aisle by her mother. As was their choice, the ceremony was brief but Lyn shed a tear of joy as she exchanged vows with her amazing man. The party began, the champagne flowed and the oysters were consumed late into the night.
A huge amount of preparation led up to the Wedding Ceremonies of Rakesh and Andrea. With a pre-wedding Hindi Ritual followed by a spectacular Hindi Ceremony, Andrea and Rakesh had a memorable week. Their Hindi ceremony was translated into English for Andrea and their guests. Two days later they had their official ceremony at “Hillstone” Golf Links at St Lucia with 150 family and friends. The bride, looking a little nervous, looked beautiful dressed in traditional costume. The rest of the wedding party were also dressed in traditional costumes and added to the beauty of the ceremony. With so much gorgeous colour, Philip from Inexpensive Wedding Photography was able to make the photographs look spectacular.
Dianne and Mervyn celebrated their wedding in an intimate ceremony in the Parkland beside their home with close family and friends. Dianne’s son gave her away “with the greatest of pleasure”, knowing she would be in good hands with Mervyn by her side. There were a few hitches, Dianne forgot her flowers, Mervyn forgot the ring, but the day had a very happy ending and was really a day to treasure for this couple who are so in love.
When Milena decided to move to Australia and make her home in Brisbane little did she know she would meet the love of her life.

“Just a small wedding with us and the children” were the instructions Rachael gave me. Things evolved when Rachael and Ian let their relatives in New Zealnd know of their plans. A small wedding in a park became a beautiful wedding on the beach on Coochiemudlo Island with their 2 children and a large gathering of family and friends from across the Tasman.
