Lets talk all things wedding ceremonies! In Noosa there are so many beautiful wedding locations to say “I do”. To have your ceremony in one of the gorgeous beach or river side locations you require a permit from Noosa Council. For more information on securing your permit for your wedding we have included a link to the application site with all the FAQ’s. Now this gorgeous shoot was taken at Laguna Grove, one of my personal fav ceremony spots located right on Noosa Main Beach, off Hasting’s Street.

I recently chatted with Mary Bruce who is an ABIA award winning Wedding Celebrant and she had some tips for all you brides to be. She says planning your ceremony is as easy as 1,2,3!
1. Find the celebrant who makes you feel comfortable and whom you feel confident will create the wedding of your dreams.
2. Meet with them and attend to the legal requirements. (Your celebrant guides you through this.)
3. Together you create a ceremony that is unique, personal, joyful, talked about for years to come; something you both LOVE; an experience both you and your guests will enjoy from beginning to end; inclusive, individual, wonderful and unforgettable. Easy!
In addition to Mary’s 3 easy steps…have you thought about how you can make your ceremony different? We have all heard about sand ceremonies and butterfly releases, but what about Doves? Doves share a commitment and a love of being home together. It is said that if White Doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured and good luck will come to all who witness their release. White Doves symbolise peace, love, innocence and purity. Sounds pretty romantic huh!
To help you with your ceremony planning here is an example timeline that might assist you;
1.30pm start of your permit time; your decorators can start setting up from now
2.45pm groom and guests arrive
3.30pm congratulations and group photos
4.00pm off for bridal party photos (think about organising something from 4pm-5pm for your guests to do before the reception starts)
4.30pm end of permit
