Natalie & Michael’s Sunshine Beach Wedding

This Sunshine Beach wedding was such a fabulous day that I was so lucky to be part of. Natalie & Michael gathered a very selective group of their favourite people to celebrate their marriage at a private house at this gorgeous Sunshine Coast location. Everything about the day was stunning! Natalie is a natural beauty herself and has a great eye for detail so decorated the house perfectly. Enjoy a little window into this awesome celebration!

Natalie designed her own dress based off a combination of a few different designs she had seen and her Mum made it for her (!!!!) so she had a completely unique, one off dress for the day. It was actually a body suit with a skirt over the top and was SO stunning.

It’s actually a really big job turning a house into a beautiful space for a wedding and Natalie totally crushed it!

Michael and his groomsmen wore kilts as a nod to their Scottish heritage.

Natalie & Michael decided to do a first look so they could have some photos done before their ceremony. I always love seeing couple’s reactions during first looks!

We went to part of the Noosa National Park which was nearby to the house for some pre-ceremony photos.

As a really special touch, it was Natalie’s cousin that married them. Very handy having a celebrant in the family!

The shoe game is always a fun way to get some great candid shots of people having a good laugh!

Candid photos of guests enjoying themselves are by far my favourite photos of the day. This is what gives your collection of photos a real feel of what the day was like and it’s so nice looking back seeing your guests having the best time!

Once Natalie & Michael had a couple of drinks, some food and hung out with their guests for a while we headed down to Sunshine Beach for some more photos during the last light of the day which is always the best time for photos.
