Ashlea and Johnathan’s Noosa North Shore wedding proves that there’s nothing quite as magical as a glamorous teepee celebration! The couple’s wedding reception featured a gorgeous dessert bar, live music, and a cocktail-style dinner to encourage a laid-back atmosphere and mingling between their family and friends. We think the soft draping and dramatic beading on Ashlea’s Pallas Couture gown was the perfect touch to complete her casually glam bridal look. Photographer Bonnie Jenkins captured the couple’s day beautifully, including some gorgeous beachy couple portraits shot at dusk!

Beach Road Holiday Homes, Noosa, Australia
For us, it was important for the day to be relaxed and for all of our guests to have fun and mingle with each other. We wanted somewhere we could do our own thing and not be forced to choose certain things and Beach Road Holiday Homes were great with this. It was the perfect place for the teepees to be set up and most of our guests stayed at the venue so it was so convenient for everyone.
Our photographer Bonnie was amazing before and on the day. She was so professional and made us so relaxed on the day. She captured some perfect moments and we cannot thank her enough.
Our advice: Don’t stress about the little things – on the day you actually do not even notice. Easier said than done now that it’s over but it’s so true. We had a wedding coordinator on the day and we would definitely recommend to have one. It takes all of the stress away and you can just enjoy getting ready and the rest of the day. Also stay true to what you and your partner really want your wedding to be, it may not be everyone else’s ideal wedding and it can be difficult to accommodate everyone but as long as you are both happy with it that’s all that matters.
We wanted to the day to be relaxed and fun and we wanted all our guests to mingle so we decided on a cocktail style reception. We absolutely love the look and vibe of teepee weddings and we chose live music to create that chilled atmosphere during the day and a party vibe at night. It worked perfectly.
