Maroochy Botanic Gardens for an elegant picnic wedding …

Congratulations Gabby and Damon, and little Dominic.

Gabby is like a niece to me.  So when she asked me to assist with her Sunshine Coast wedding I was over the moon.

Not sure what you want for a garden wedding?

Gabby wasn’t quite sure what they wanted for a wedding, so we jumped in the car and went for a drive.

She wished for an outdoor wedding, a beautiful place with stunning gardens, a parkland for a wedding picnic, and a simply gorgeous place for a marriage ceremony.  So I suggested a Maroochy Botanic Gardens wedding, a perfect place in which to marry.

A Love Story

Gabby and Damon first met at a blind date set up by friends.  As soon as they saw each other, there was an instant attraction.  Something clicked.  She took his hand, to lead him to the buffet.  It was a gesture he will always remember; a gesture of kindness and caring, a sign of her friendliness.

A child

Little Dominic, their sweet young son, just loved the gardens.  He ran and jumped and played.  Seemed like he had chosen this place.  The Maroochy Botanic Gardens certainly suited a childs’ imagination and he felt free to play.  This wedding was to include several children, so the botanic gardens were perfect; a kids’ paradise and a bush haven with manicured garden beds as well.

A beautiful bride

With her stunning Chilean looks and long dark locks, Gabby made a stunning bride.  She was so proud to walk on her Dad’s arm to the ceremony along the gardens path.

A Wedding

They were married under the arch in the sculpture gardens, decorated with white tulle and ribbon for the day, against a backdrop of the infinity sculpture carved from marble. We designed an elegant wedding picnic, with picnic baskets full of nibbles and drinks, and blankets on the grass.
