~Candice & Shane~ *Married* {Gold Coast Wedding Photographer}

This fabulous South Stradbroke Island wedding was jammed packed with gorgeous details, twists & turns and even a visit from a passing pod of dolphins. We all headed over to the picturesque venue, An Island Hideaway via boat (which I almost missed, helping Candice with her dress...phew!) Then came the 1st surprise...Candice arrived in true style in a sea plane! {Talk about Fantasy Island...} It was an amazing entrance! The next surprise was for Shane...the pageboy, his nephew, was carrying the sweetest chalkboard sign that said, "Uncle Shane, here comes your girl". The day was simply flawless with a lovely ceremony performed by (one of my personal favs) Bernadette Brushe.

It was such a perfect day, I'm not shocked that it is feature on the inspiration-heavy blog Lovie Dovie Weddings. As if that isn't exciting enough, it is also featured as a Real Wedding in the Autumn 2014 Gold Coast Weddings Magazine.

~Cloudland~ *Preferred Vendor* {Brisbane Wedding}

Here is the next gorgeous venue in my series of "Preferred Vendor" interviews. This stunning Brisbane city location has it all. Lovely, helpful staff...yummy food (yes, I had a few nibbles) and  each room has a different theme with lush decor. It is truly amazing! Even the toilets were lavish. I can't wait to share it with you.
