I’m often asked which is my favourite photo shoot location on the Sunshine Coast. My friend, I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
Smack bang in the middle of the Sunshine Coast is my absolute fave location, Mudjimba Beach. From the pristine beach with hardly a person in sight to the riverside, Old Woman Island, the dunes, rocks and that perfect lighting at sunset. You can pretty much see the entire coast from this perfect patch of paradise and for all you fellow dog-lovers, it’s dog friendly, too.
Mudjimba Beach also holds an extra special spot in my heart, because it’s where I used to go all the time as a child, with my family to walk our fur babies.
I recently teamed up with some local wedding experts to capture all the wonder of this romantic coastal landscape.I’m all about this elegant dress, complete with plunging neckline, split in the wrap around ball gown skirt and full cathedral train that Sunshine Coast based, Marilyn Crystelle Bridal custom-designed and handmade especially for our shoot.Ginger Lily & Rose chose the dreamiest colour palette for this bouquet. The pops of orange and violet contrasted beautifully against the sand. Yes, you absolutely can have anemones in your bouquet!Nicole from Sass & Niki’s Wedding Hair is a specialist in on-trend romantic hairstyles. The natural waves she created for Caitlin were elegantly complimented by the floral hairpiece.
Every beach bride needs a glam squad! Kate Ellen Makeup Artistry was also onboard and her signature style is flawless and fresh. She has even trained in New York with Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist!How uber cool is Kurt’s Suits Direct suit!
