'Toes In The Water' Wedding Inspiration

 

'Surrounded by candles, toes dipped in the cooling waters, Tiannah and Mackenzie were “married” by celebrant, Danielle – Your Story Celebrant. It wasn’t a formal, nor official affair, but one to showcase a summer wedding beside the water without the heat. The trees and running water provided the coolness for the shoot, set up for inspiration by some talented Sunshine Coast wedding vendors."

ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD  PHOTOGRAPHY

Pier 33 Wedding Drew & Lana

The bride and her tribe we transported to the wedding venue in a close friend’s boat along the Mooloolaba River to Pier 33. When the boat arrived, all the wedding guests were asked to turn the opposite way to the bride so no one saw her before walking down the isle. This was so well orchestrated by Danielle, the celebrant.

It was a beautiful moment w
hen Lana walked down her wedding isle towards her groom looking absolutely stunning! The ceremony was so lovely and naturally for this couple, full of loads of smiles and laughter. Their love, undeniable.
