~ with Sunshine Coast wedding celebrant Kari ~
Congratulations Alison and Graham, married at Tiffany’s, on the Sunshine Coast Range.
This is a story about a place really, a place of extraordinary beauty for a wedding. A place that is old and is new, that is borrowed for your wedding day and is blue. So every bride can fulfil the traditional rhyme for her wedding day.
This is a place to treasure. A special wedding venue.
Certainly every time I, as a Sunshine Coast wedding celebrant, arrive, it takes my breath away.
Whilst the wedding chapel at Weddings at Tiffany’s may be quite new, the place is ancient. The spectacle of the Glasshouse Mountains is the backdrop and the main character in this story. Unions have been made on this ridge for millenia, so it is apt that couples choose this magnificent view as the backdrop to their nuptials.
The new Tiffany’s wedding chapel frames the view through huge glass panels, as the backdrop to a couple for their wedding ceremony.
Alison and Graham chose this place for their wedding, a place of unusual splendour, and a magical quality to lend to special occasions such as this.
Flowers by Kelly and her team complemented the chapel, with a bright coloured floral scheme chosen by the couple.
On a personal level this place is very special to Alison and Graham. Every time they have driven to this area has been a special occasion, a time of personal celebration.
They had their first picnic outing together at Mary Cairncross Park just down Mountain View Road along the ridge.
They were engaged close by in Montville.
Their wedding day was a day of extra celebration and sharing with the people they loved. And no-one could be missed out, so they filled the chapel brimful of their friends and family. Every chair and pew was filled.
As part of their ceremony they chose to “tie the knot”.
When I asked Alison and Graham their favourite colour they both answered blue. Then Graham clarified his choice as navy blue, and Alison as ocean blue. It is very fitting, that whilst they have much in common, the two blues symbolise that two individuals are also different. Their marriage will be strong from their similarities and gain further strength from their individual differences.
Using two cords, one of navy blue, and one of ocean blue, Alison and Graham tied their lovers knot after the exchange of rings. May their knot never come unravelled.
Todays’ story is accompanied not by photos from a professional wedding photographer, but some snaps I took on a glorious day, as they left the Chapel for official photos.
