editor’s note Of late, I have found myself mentally fistbumping every last couple whose wedding crosses my inbox, and saying a great big, “Yasssss!” to all the brides we host in our private Facebook group. You gosh-darn geniuses have been breaking it down, coming back to what weddings are really about. Family. Making memories. Good times and great food. Tying the knot with your best friend.

When it comes to your wedding, if all these things are present, you’ve got yourself one perfect celebration of love. You guys are planning your big days around the feelings and emotions you want to experience on the day, and the memories you want to look back on. I, for one, think that’s brilliant. As in all things in life, when you’re truly genuine, and approaching your wedding planning with love in your heart, you can’t go wrong. Here’s to you gorgeous people, and another great edition with all the pretty things that are the icing on the cake of your dream day. I hope you adore this creative collation as much I adored putting it together for you! Love,

In a lush tipi setting designed for comfort and style, our clean contemporary-meets-bohemian bridal inspiration shoot has a distinctly humble elegance and down-to-earth, relaxed-yet-glam vibes.

Off the beaten track, a short ferry ride from Noosaville, is Noosa North Shore. Beach Road Holiday Homes is a sanctuary surrounded by bush, where 49 architecturally-designed homes are nestled close to secluded pristine beaches. The ideal location for a getaway weekend wedding for you and all your guests.

Under the tipi, beachy flavours were used to create an earthy setting with ultimate comfort and natural elements in mind. Macrame and tassels were in the details, along with bamboo, natural wood furniture and lots of textures.

From their handsome van, the chef from Vanteen Catering created some fresh delectable dishes.


White rattan lanterns and an abundance of throw cushions were scattered amongst the oversized ottomans, bean bags, and sofas for plenty of nooks for chill out areas.
