Sarah & Andrew // A beautiful beach wedding !

This funky Gold Coast duo met on the 4th August 2006 at the Powerhouse, Albert Park, Victoria. It was the University watersports cocktail night (which was odd because Andrew no longer attended university and neither of them were involved in any water sports what soever) Andrew immediately noticed Sarah’s calfs (which she thought was weird) and she immediately noticed that Andrew and his friends were WAY past university age.

They bonded over a mutual love of Billy Joel, Elton John, The Rolling Stones and Beatles. They exchanged numbers and had a date not too long after.


Fast forward 13 years and a baby later they decided to get married at the beautiful Burleigh Beach in the John Laws Park on the 16th of March 2019. Normally this location offers views all the way to Surfers Paradise but the overcast weather provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding with the buildings in the distance just poking through.

The couple had their Pop Up Wedding with their closest family and friends in attendance- with an extra special guest- their son Patrick. ( click the photos to see more )


With love in her heart and flowers in her hair.

Sarah looked amazing in her Leaf en bloom flower crown with matching bouquet.

Flower crowns are the perfect alternative to the traditional veil. They bring a fresh, natural beauty to your bridal look and really stand out in your wedding photos.

Siobhan and Dan // A Colourful Celebration

A beautiful Chinese Wedding with everything from a Tea Ceremony to a 10 course meal !

The tea ceremony sees the newlyweds serve tea containing either two lotus seeds or two red dates to the groom’s family. The family are served in order, starting with the groom’s parents before progressing from oldest to youngest. After each family member takes a sip of their tea, they offer the couple a red envelope with money or jewellery inside.

Even in modern Chinese weddings, the couples can take great liberty with choosing a Western-style ceremony, but the banquet remains a heavily-traditional affair out of respect for their parents and families. Both sides of the family come together to host a bright and colourful celebration that usually includes between five and 10 courses for the main meal, filled with highly symbolic foods.

Fit for a feast.

Ruth & Kyle // A destination pop up wedding....

Canadian-based couple Ruth and Kyle chose magnificent Main Beach to hold their 10 year vow renewal. The day was stormy, cloudy and dark!! But, it didn’t dampen the brightness felt in their hearts. Of the Anglican faith, we had the Reverend Stewart Parry on board to officiate their ceremony. The celebrations continued into the night at the nearby Southport Yacht Club.

The Ceremony…

Coolibah Downs Private Estate is a beautiful venue with a natural rustic vibe. It offers plenty of room among the gardens and has accommodation for the bridal party to get ready. The ceremony was set up in the Croquet Lawn with tiffany white chairs facing a glamorous arbour that featured taupe draping and purple florals nestled in its corner. It was a combination of elegance and simplicity.

The Photography…

Maryam & Bill were taken around Coolibah Downs Private Estate to capture their beautiful moments by Rezolution Photography. The picturesque venue created magical moments that will be able to be treasured for a lifetime.

The Wedding Reception…

In celebration of the happy couple, the reception was held in a beautiful, grand marquee draped decoratively with hanging chandeliers. The tables carried with the wedding theme of eggplant and white. The tables featured tall vases with flowing tulips as centrepieces. The bride and groom decided on favours of mini cheese knives and mini photo frames that were placed on each table for each of their guests.  The newlyweds continued to celebrate their marriage with family and friends into the night.

It was a pleasure to be a part of this beautiful day and we wish Bill & Maryam a lifetime of happiness together!
