When you have a beautiful backdrop like Flaxton Gardens in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland it’s impossible not to embrace its beauty as a part of your special day. This couple did just that with a rustic style wedding which included simple 3-tiered cake wrapped in burlap & wildflower centerpiece. You can see every moment of pretty captured by Jennifer Oliphant here!
From Jennifer Oliphant…Emily and Daniel’s elegant and rustic wedding was held at the beautiful Flaxton Gardens in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on a rainy day. The stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland was a top priority for Emily and Daniel when choosing a location for their wedding. The gorgeous scenery there makes for a truly beautiful backdrop, not only for a wedding but for the location photography as well.
The bride and groom met at a very young age but did not start dating until after high school. After six years together Daniel proposed at the top of Mount Edward, somewhere that was very special to them since they went there on one of their first dates. This January will mark eight years together for this gorgeous couple.
Emily and Daniel’s reception in the Barrel Room at Flaxton Gardens was peppered with lots of lovingly created DIY bits and pieces. Daniel made the vases that held the flowers for the name place cards, his mother made the lovely table runners that covered the tables, and Emily crafted the beautiful place cards and thank you notes with the help of Daniel’s cousin and the lace and twine candle holders with her friends. These tiny details really made the reception unique and looked just gorgeous.
There was so much fun and laughter throughout the day; the bond between the bridal party and Emily and Daniel was evident and helped make the day truly special for them. The staff at Flaxton Gardens did an amazing job for their wedding, ensuring the day was relaxed and stress free, which I know was an important element for Emily and Daniel.
