From the Bride… Tim and I always knew we wanted to get married on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland as it was where we had our first date almost 7 years ago. We took our time planning our wedding over 16 months with the help of our family and friends. It was great to have our family fully involved in the planning process and together we made our invitations and the decorations for the ceremony and reception. Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined and everything came together perfectly! Our favourite part of the day was seeing each other down the aisle for the first time and hearing each others personalised vows. The vows were really important to us, we wanted them to be personal and to truly express how we felt about one another. A highlight for me was surprising Tim with our two-faced Star Wars cake and the light saber bridal entry. He has always been a massive star wars fan and I knew incorporating that into our day would mean a lot to him. We wanted our day to reflect who we were as a couple and having all these personal touches is what really made our day!
From Matt Rowe Photography… Having met Courtney and Tim some time out from their big day (and even meeting their fur-baby), we really felt connected to this endearing couple. They were both so excited and at ease on their wedding day that it was near tangible to account for how present they were throughout their ceremony and special time on our location shoot in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It was one of those weddings that had everyone smiling throughout the day – from prep to reception- and we have no doubt that Tim and Courtney are a perfect match supported by positive friends and family as they head forth into the future together.

From Cathrin D’Entremont Weddings…These two meant to be together forever! A fairy tale in the making with both parents houses only steps away from each other. Their career path crossed for the first time in an operating theatre and that’s where their story began…Both had very similar upbringings. Meg’s father being a Cray fisherman, a lot of her youth revolved around the ocean and Franc grew up on an island in the Caribbean Sea.
Their work leaves very little time for anything else, never mind organizing a wedding, so I was delighted to be asked to design and plan their wedding. They both wanted to hold the ceremony at his parents’ home and then have the guests just walk a few houses down to hold the reception at her parents’ home.
Meg and Franc love soft pink colours and with Franc’s Mum being a watercolour artist she started immediately on the invitation design. They turned out to be amazing! The ceremony was set-up by the pool in the backyard immediately to be followed by champagne toasts. The guests made their way to the reception following a bag pipers music, who is a family friend.
Meg and Franc wanted a family feast style dinner with one plate being crayfish supplied by Meg’s Dad. Signature cocktails throughout the night and a caricaturist entertaining the guests. Jess, Meg’s long time friend and bridesmaid made the 3 tier naked cake. I can personally vouch that it tasted amazing.
