~ with Sunshine Coast marriage celebrant – Kari
~ a modern wedding in a bamboo garden ~
Congratulations Sarah and Flynn, and little Aiofe.
Born here, Flynn came home for his Sunshine Coast wedding. Flynn and Sarah were married by the creek on the property near his childhood home. There were gasps of delight as the Groom and his groomsman appeared from the bamboo grove and waltzed into the grassy ceremony glade. Swinging baskets, they handed flowers to all the guests, to the the strains of Mumford and Sons, singing Winter Winds. The fun had begun!
Through the green poles of bamboo we could glimpse a white dress, like an ethereal promise appearing between the dense bamboo. The bride appeared slowly from the bamboo, with her Dad, holding little Aiofe. A trio of smiles. Her tune was La Valse de Amelie. And the wedding ceremony had begun.
Sarah and Flynn chose to have fun at their relaxed garden wedding, not too serious, yet with sincere promises. The entire family was there, and their little girl.
As the wedding ceremony was complete, a baby naming ceremony ensued. Aiofe was blessed by first her great grandmother, then grandparents and lastly her parents. She just loved playing with the water!
The reception was held under a beautiful nomadic marquee, strung with fairy lights. Guests partied to the live band and danced out on the grass.
