At this Sunshine Coast wedding, the couple got ready by the beach at the Landmark Resort Hotel in Mooloolaba before getting hitched at Annabella Wedding Chapel with Diana Hassett as the marriage celebrant. Celebrations followed at one of the newest wedding venues on the Sunshine Coast, The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast and for their very first wedding.
After talking with the couple leading up to the wedding day about their plans for a vintage wedding with a relaxed country style, I was excited to photograph Belinda & Chris’s country wedding.
Finally the day arrived and it lived up to everything the couple had told me and more.
From Chris’s funky velour navy jacket, bow tie, braces and tan shoes. To Belinda’s beautiful navy and silver glitter shoes with their names personalised in the soft pink lining. But wait till you see Belinda’s stunning vintage inspired wedding gown, with a removable skirt that Chris revealed in their first dance. The bridesmaids looked just as stunning in their soft pink dresses and tone toned bone shoes.
Every detail had been thought of from the ceremony venue to the reception venue.
At Annabella Wedding Chapel there were timber-pattern printed cones to hold rose petals, glass bottles of feathers with gold tips adorned the window sills in the chapel and the cute ‘hello gorgeous’ and ‘hello handsome’ wooden signs for the signing table.
At The Lakehouse Sunshine Coast the tables were dressed with carefully handmade DIY elements, such as the rosemary-infused olive oil bottles and olive plants as gifts for the guests, beautiful florals in mason jars on wooden table runners, timber table numbers and personalised cootie-catchers with the BHC insignia, wedding date, cute antelope graphic that opened out to display the menu. Then there was the magnificent cookie counter with all goodies home-baked by the bride herself.
