Daniel & I first met at our after-school job at the local pizza shop before realising we shared classes together & have been inseparable since. That was when we were 16 (& many years ago). We have shared many amazing memories, but one of the best would be the day he proposed to me at my new favourite lookout over the ocean at sunset. Topping that would be our wedding day, but before the happiness & fun times that we had there were a lot of nerves & planning.
Some people find that they know exactly what they want for their big day, but that just wasn’t us. We spent many weekends travelling around attending wedding expo’s, which is where we met the lovely Michelle who invited us to take a look at the venue & I am so thankful we did. Not only was it beautiful, overlooking the water, but everything was taken care of leaving little for me to stress about. I cannot emphasise how much Michelle has done for us – from assisting will all aspects of the day & helping with our menu options, to table layout & suggesting suppliers, even organising a quiet room for a breastfeeding mother.
What was important to us was having a small wedding with our closest family & friends & Pelican Waters Golf Club was the perfect fit. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather on the day against the many picturesque backgrounds that this venue has to offer. Most of our guests graciously travelled to our wedding & located perfectly next door is plenty of accommodation which housed nearly all of our guests. The staff were also spectacular leading up to our wedding, on our wedding day (we had so many amazing reviews from our guests, especially about Bronte & Alex, who ensured we had the most amazing time & we can’t thank them enough for all the help & laughs they gave us)
Pelican Waters Golf Club & Cloud Nine work perfectly together. Julie from Cloud Nine gave us so much inspiration & helped us transform a cut out from a magazine to something that was our own. Our colours of the day were blush pink & rose gold & Julie was able to match everything perfectly from our flowers to our chair covers.
We must give a very special mention to our amazing photographer, Lee Burgess, who gave us so much help leading up to the day. Going above & beyond by helping us plan our timeline, Lee has given us the gift of the most amazing wedding photos to remember & cherish for the rest of our lives. She offered us so much more than photography & for that we are forever grateful. Our magical day was thanks to so many people putting in the time & effort which we will appreciate forever because it has left us with lifelong memories of such a fantastic day.
