Liz and Justin
Today’s second wedding is also a beautiful beach celebration! Isn’t it beautiful to see weddings on the beach that use unusual colour palettes? I love what Liz & Justin chose!
Liz and Justin met in the UK! Justin traveled to the UK for a holiday and met Liz through a friend of his. The couple lived together for 18 months before deciding to return to Australia together. Liz and Justin got engaged underneath the Eiffel Towel in Paris!
Although Liz and Justin hail from Melbourne, they wanted a beach wedding and decided to marry at Maroochydore on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Liz and Justin were married on Cotton Tree Beach
Yellow roses symbolised Liz’s mother. Liz and Justin wrote their own vows and had a handfasting ritual performed during their wedding ceremony.
Liz imported the bridesmaids gowns from the UK
The couple held their reception at The Boat Shed in Cotton Tree, the 300 metre distance from the ceremony made it the perfect location for guests! The venue sits on the water outlet for the Maroochydore river, providing spectacular views. The couple had many guests fly to Queensland from Melbourne and the UK.
Liz and Justin danced their bridal waltz to “Everglow” by INXS. Liz and Justin went to an INXS concert shortly after they began dating and the song reminds them of their time in the UK. The couple organised a lot of the details themselves including making their wedding cake! The couple used coordinator Elizabeth Murphy to help plan their wedding day.
Thank you Liz and Justin for sharing your beautiful wedding day with us today! We wish you all the best for a beautiful marriage! Thank you also to Karen Buckle for sharing her gorgeous photos with us!
