There are few things we love more than a golden hour wedding ceremony, so this sunset beach ceremony blew us away! Jade and Joe tied the knot at the Aleenta Resort in front of all their family and friends, then wrapped up the festivities with a spectacular party, amazing food, and a stunning lantern release at the end of the night. Jade wore a dramatic floor-length lace gown from Grace Loves Lace for the ceremony, then changed into the cutest short dress for an effortlessly beachy reception look! Studiokel Photography captured every detail of this sunset wedding with gorgeous emotion and light.

We wanted something rather chill & laid back, yet chic & comfortable, hence the ceremony on the beach. After visiting several venues, Aleenta‘s “villa-to-lawn-to-beach” layout was perfect for what we wanted to achieve. I chose a pretty neutral & sweet colour theme, as we didn’t want anything too over the top.
One of my favourite moments is the ceremony bit with my dad at sunset. It was a very emotional moment for us, I could feel his love & joy for me as we walked in to the instrumental version of Des’ree’s Kissing You.
My tips for other brides-to-be are: On your wedding day, relax, don’t forget to breathe, know that your bffs are all there for you and all there to help and have a great time. Take the time to soak it all in. Don’t get overly drunk and forget the night, like I did!
With months of preparation culminating in one big awesome celebration, we could hardly stop to take it all in with the barrage of merry making, speeches and performances. But when guests launched a sea of fire lanterns into the night sky and a sense of calm swept over the party as everyone paused, enthralled by the sight, it really allowed us a moment to soak in and savour that very moment of joy with all our loved ones around us.
