Rochelle & Jeremy // Eumundi, QLD

Glorious Hinterland Garden Party Wedding With Sperry Tent And Mountain Views

After their original venue fell through, Rochelle and Jeremy were given a few months to pull together the celebration they had imagined.

Thankfully, they enlisted a dream team of Sunshine Coast wedding suppliers, including Love Bird Weddings who helped them create the most beautiful garden party at a private property in Eumundi, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Sandi from Willowbud Flowers brought her A-game, as she always does, creating stunning bouquets and floral installations in the Sperry Tents Sunshine Coast’s spacious Sperry Tent.

Rochelle and her girls got ready on site with the help of Sass and Niki Wedding Hair and Makeup By Tihanna, before Rochelle stepped into her striking Chosen by One Day gown and was crowned with her Martina McGrath Millinery head piece.

Jeremy and Rochelle’s day was filled with so many elements that just felt like “them”. From the guys wearing relaxed Country Road jackets and bridesmaids in custom spring floral dresses, to their laid-back but meaningful ceremony, all their guests with drinks and sun umbrellas in hand.

Post ceremony, guests were greeted with Aperol Spritz and canapés by Spoonfed Catering and serenaded by the sweet sounds of Dan McGahan Music. It was such a lovely setup, perfect for mingling and watching the sun go down before sharing a meal on long family tables in the Sperry Tent and listening to some seriously good speeches, then dancing into the night.

If we had to summarise Jeremy and Rochelle’s day, it would be relaxed and all class but also playful. It was truly such fun to capture their day in both photo and film. We so loved getting to work as our Ephemeral team, cohesively documenting all of the moments and details that will tell the story of Rochelle and Jeremy for years to come.

You can watch the film we created below, followed by some of our favourite photos from the day.

Enjoy!

Matt & Karolina // Sunshine Coast, QLD

We hardly know where to begin when it comes to Matt and Karolina, we fell in love with them, their family and their friends. Their day was one filled with so much heart and had all three of us tearing up behind our cameras and at other times laughing out loud.

Below are some kind words from Karolina, followed by their wedding film and some photo highlights from their day.

So, I simply just don't know good enough words to describe how absolutely amazing you guys are! From the very first email to the very last mail I just collected from the post office. Everything you did, every email and message you sent us, every chat we had, the way you've been during the whole pre wedding process - everything was amazing and simply perfect! And then the wedding day came where you made us feel so special. You were so personal, so fun and so easy to have around. We were so lucky to share our day with you guys, you were incredible! I wanted you to know that with the way you captured our day for us you saved the memories of our wedding day for me. There was so many things that went wrong leading up to the day and then on the day but the photos and video made me forget all about that and see our day as perfect. What you gave us is way more than amazing photos and video and way more then I expected and imagined. Thank you so much! Love Karolina x

Madeleine & Frankie // The Falls Farm, Mapleton Wedding

Some people just have a way of welcoming you with so much warmth and gratitude, we felt so valued and privileged to be part of Madz and Frankie’s wedding. It’s just the best feeling and one that pushes us to pour all of our heart and creativity into what we do, thank you beautiful people.

We loved every inch of Madeleine and Frankie's wedding, they started the day with a traditional tea ceremony, followed by a beautiful outdoor ceremony, feasting in tee pees and dancing under the stars. It all took place at the incredible Falls Farm in Mapleton.

Ben & Melody // portrait collection

We often work with the most beautiful souls, Ben and Mel are no exception. We love their hearts and felt so privileged to witness and capture their wedding. For now, we just wanted to share some of our favourite frames from their portrait time. We wandered a little deeper into the national park with just the two of them to make some photos, it was really special.

Thanks Ben & Mel for being so completely wonderful. x

Daryl & Michael // Newrybar, NSW Wedding

Meeting people as genuine and lovely as these two has to be the best part of our job.

Daryl and Michael's day took place in the lush grounds of Newrybar Downs and was the perfect setting for their crisp white, black and gold colour palette. Their wedding continued at Beach in Byron Bay for an intimate reception. 

Brittany & Eoin // Koh Samui, Thailand Wedding

From Ireland and Australia these two found one another and chose to celebrate with their closest in Koh Samui, somewhere in between their two home lands.

We were fortunate enough to be invited to capture it. Thank you Brittany and Eoin for trusting us with your day and welcoming us like family.
