Sara and Jordan

A sweet beachside wedding in Mt Coolum for you this afternoon! Today’s couple Sara and Jordan met at an inter school talent contest!

Sara and Jordan married at SurfAir Resort on Marcoola Beach . The couple chose the venue because it’s close to the CBD of the Sunshine Coast with a beautiful beach, restaurant and hotel.

After the kiss, Sara and Jordan performed a sand ceremony together before walking back down the aisle to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

Sara and Jordan tell of some of their budgeting tips. “We bought the flowers from a wholesaler, Flower Barrow. They were delivered the day before in a vase and Sara and her sisters made their own bouquets. Doing it this way, rather than getting a ready-made bouquet, saved us around $100 and we were also able to scatter the extra flowers left over onto the cake table.”

Guests were given shot glasses with hand writing done by Sara and Jordan. They had their cake made by a friend and decorated it with Guylian seashell chocolates and a sweet cake topper with dolls dressed in outfits the couple own.

Coral Coast Dessert Buffet

by | Bride, Catering, Reception, Wedding Inspiration


With a seaside wedding coming up this afternoon I thought it was a perfect time to share this fun “Coral Coast” inspired dessert buffet from Kristy at Imbue Weddings. Kristy designed the cake and had it made by Deliciously Decadent Cake Design.

I like that this isn’t a particularly full dessert buffet- there is no food apart from the cake and the cupcakes. It’s statement comes in through the array of vases, flowers and textures. Easy and beautiful!

Saja Wedding Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Saja is a New York designer with an eye for the flow. With a heavy Asian influence, founder Yoo Lee creates non traditional wedding gowns with an ethereal feel.

I’m taken by the Saja’s use of flowing fabrics with a touch of feminine detailing- a bow, a cinched in waist or a beautiful back. They look so comfortable they’d be perfect for a beach or garden celebration.
