Shannon and Troy

What better way to end a glorious week of real weddings than to end with one from the Sunshine Coast?

Photos today are by Studio C Photography.

Shannon has a way with words, so I’m going to leave it to her to tell you the story of her wedding day. “My husband Troy proposed to me in Sept 2008 on North Stradbroke Island, Qld. (Every year since I was a toddler my family and friends have spent the September holidays on North Stradbroke.) Troy knew this place was special to me, so he planned to pop the question on a romantic walk around the Point Lookout gorge or on top of a sand dune. Little did I know every time Troy tried to get me alone, I asked someone to join us, or I told him I didn’t feel like a walk – ruining his plans. Luckily, Troy was persistent, and didn’t give up easily.

Not long after we were engaged I became obsessed with anything related to weddings. I constantly searched wedding sites, Polka dot Bride & magazines so I could find what would be my idea of the most wonderful day. I couldn’t get enough of it and it was the best thing I could have done. I ended up having a great idea of what was in the market and where to get it, and most of all, I knew what I wanted for the big day.

The atmosphere I wanted to create was relaxed & informal – think lunchtime drinks and lot of ‘witty banter’ as my partner would say. I wanted it to be intimate, unique and beautiful. I had a fabulous team of professionals working with me that made the day seamless. My partner & I were so thrilled that the people close to us were there to share it. It was a day we will never forget. ”

Shannon wore a simple white gown from Lisa Ho and had a blush pink shrug made from laces and jewels by Holly Stalder.

Shannon’s “Something Blue” was a brooch she’d found in an antique store in Buderim. She wore cream flats from Mollini.

Shannon found a unique piece from Frits Rosenow for Troy to wear as his buttonhole. To show off Troy’s fun personality, Shannon worked with the designers to create a pirate ship boutonniere. This kept in line with the pirate ship theme of the day- invitations were created by Printable Press.

A three tier cake was created by Mary Brown (07 5444 6603). Shannon says “One other thing I did to make everyone feel a part of the day was I made up a DVD slide show of our family weddings. It played non-stop throughout the day and had photos of our grandparent’s weddings our parents’ weddings, & our siblings’ weddings. This turned out to be excellent as it brought all the generations together to reminisce, and remember their own special day.”

Shannon and Troy gave bags with custom labels from My Own Label filled with lollies as favours.
