Truth be told, I’m a chatterbox. Always have been, always will be. But when it comes to this beautiful garden affair captured by Casey Jane Photography, I’m at a loss for words. From the lush florals from Willow Bud to the awe-inspiring cake from Dream Cakes And Creations, I’m fairly certain that nothing I say can possibly give this gorgeous day it’s due. Get lost in the lovely right here.
From Casey Jane Photography…Childhood sweethearts Ce’Nedra and Luke married at Flaxton Gardens against the majestic backdrop of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland underneath an arbor of flowers. Ce’Nedra wore a dazzling Swarovski crystal embroidered gown with a dramatic trumpet skirt that led to a beautiful organza and English net sweep train.
The bride and groom shoot took place up in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Ce’Nedra and Luke spent some quiet time together enjoying the view of the beautiful glass house mountains before traveling back in style in a classic Rolls Royce! The reception featured raw timber runners, mixed candle holders, tarnished silver goblets and mugs, timber boxes, antique cut crystal and the prettiest of pretty nude toned flowers!

When it comes to weddings dripping in romance, you Australian lovelies really know how it’s done. Maybe that has a little something to do with the serious cuties tying the knot… or the breathtaking landscapes… or the fab vendors coming together to put on one heck of a party. My guess? A sweet combination of all of the above. Soak in some Australian perfection captured by Matt Rowe Photography right here. It’s time to get your pretty on.
From Matt Rowe Photography… Vikki and Bryan blended a calm ‘knowing’ with a whole lot of vibrance for their wedding day. Details in the decorations (twig and blossom) held a natural appreciation of beautiful things and Vikki’s bridesmaids packed a punch of colour in their floral dresses. As a photographer, I had so much fun with Vikki and Bryan on their location shoot; they were willing to give everything a go and just embraced the moment. One of my favourite moments was with the dandelion (wishes) where a little competitive spirit came out followed by laughter. When you leave the night feeling like you’ve been with friends, then you know it was a good one!
From the Bride… There are so many ‘best parts’ of my day. The whole day was a best part! But the one moment that sticks in my mind more than any is walking down the stairs at home and seeing my dad crying, watching me (it made me cry, too). We are very close, and it’s so nice to be daddy’s little girl one last time. This is probably the moment where it all started to really feel like my wedding day.
We didn’t purposely go out of our way to do anything different to other couples. We really wanted to be able to invite whoever we wanted and not be constrained by maximum guest numbers. We decided to have an afternoon at the church with the 200-something guests, followed by an intimate reception with 45 close family & friends.
I loved my dress!! I had seen it months before we even got engaged. When I put my dress on, it was very surreal. It had been a few weeks since I had last tried it on. It’s just such a beautiful dress, I couldn’t believe that I was wearing it!
I am so incredibly blessed to have all four of my grandparents around. It truly was a blessing to have so many family and friends around us celebrating our special day with us in all it’s delights.

From Little Owl Events…Some of the finest Brisbane and Sunshine Coast wedding vendors came together to create a a relaxed, yet beautifully polished beach ceremony elopement inspiration shoot full of summer florals, turquoise hues and a fun couple in love.
The Sunshine Coast has some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, popular with Bride’s from all over the country. We wanted to show these Bride’s what could be done for those wishing to escape the stresses of planning a full wedding. The elopement shoot showcases some of this season’s most popular colours, which work so well with the natural landscape of the beach.
Ale & Kim’s use of film photography really enhances the natural colours and lighting at the beach while still showcasing the deep, bold colours of the floral work by Willow Bud. Hair and Make-Up by The Beauty Case showcases the relaxed atmosphere of the shoot, while enhancing our model’s gorgeous skin and hair.
The shoot was brought to life with styling by the impeccable Simply Style Co. who managed to pull off the relaxed, yet polished vibe with a stunning canopy, church pews and a relaxed low table dining area.
The concept for this shoot was developed by both Little Owl Events, and Simply Style Co, who really wanted to showcase what is possible on the Sunshine Coast for those couples who prefer a more intimate wedding.
