Gemma has a great love for small villages and especially loves making regular trips to visit the UK, Italy and Scandinavia.

 

Gemma says of the couples tropical themed wedding day…

 

The bride and groom’s guests had travelled from mostly the UK to be there as Charlotte is British, and Charlotte wanted to show her family what Australia looks like with an amazing view over the ocean.

Therefore they chose the setting of their ceremony and reception at Freshwater SLSC as it was right on the beach and had looked spectacular every time they had visited previously.

The celebrant, Andrea, conducted a very personalised and funny ceremony that had all guests with big smiles on their faces!

She thought it would be great to have a ‘flash mob reading’ where all the guests joined in.

It was a surprise for Charlotte and Patrick and they absolutely loved it!

The Marmalade Sky pulled off some brilliant styling for this bright tropical themed wedding day with a white arbour dripping with tropical coloured blooms at the top and bottom.

The Surf Lifesaving Club also looked amazing with beautiful floral pineapple centrepieces and colourful lanterns with a Harry Potter-themed three-tier wedding cake making a statement with its gold quidditch ball as the cake topper!

It was important for the couple that the guests have a good amount of time to mingle, so there was delicious grazing platter was on offer and drinks with a few words from relatives.

After the group photos, we headed to the beach with just Charlotte and Patrick so they could enjoy some romantic moments.
