Rainforest weddings whisper “elopement” gently in my ear – I would have said they scream “elopement” but they’re much more subtle than that. Beautiful shade, bird song, greenery all around and a touch of magic in the air (hey, I grew up watching Ferngully) all combine to make a moody and intimate backdrop for a ceremony, and we have all of that beauty in our backyard on the Gold Coast. I teamed up with an all-star ensemble of Gold Coast wedding pros to bring this wedding dream to life in the Currumbin Valley:

Knots of Love – arbour & styling, and all-around visionary
Coolrain Estate – venue
Lola’s Wildflowers – florals
Begitta Bridal & Couture – gown & crown
Elysia Walker – makeup & hair
Addax Feathers – feather bouquet
Leila Stead of the Single Mum Diaries – model
And of course, I took some photos. And here they are.
