Alesha & Diniz's Love is so strong that it blew a storm out to sea for an hour, on a day with unpredictable weather. We had a Plan B lined up but we were confident in a small window of sunshine for their intimate Elopement on Cabarita Beach. Our lovebrids were staying at the amazing Santai Retreat, a short 5 minute drive in their Vintage Kombi, to this very special piece of Paradise!! We love that photo of Diniz & Benjamin Carlyle seeing the bride for the 1st time, coming down the stairs, a priceless image!! This ceremony was all about their timeless connection, their gorgeous family and the fact that 2 souls could connect out of the billions of others on Planet Earth!! Diniz is from Brazil and Alesha, from nearby on the Tweed Coast, how lucky we were to celebrate this connection!! Our bride's brother played accoustic tunes in the ceremony and everyone jumped in for a dance in the sand to celebrate their marriage!!
You will notice the light changing throughout the photo shoot, as our newlyweds climbed up the hill, which offers a stunning view. The storm was rolling in, but luckily they had enough time to capture some stunning moments before the heavens opened. We came prepared with umbrellas, so don't worry our couple were safe and dry. To finish off the Portrait Session they headed back to Santai Retreat, staying dry and dancing away in their bliss bubble!! We love the family photos in front of the Kombi, so much squishy Love in those images!! Alesha & Diniz shared a meal with their family at The Spice Den that night, a fantastic restaurant onsite at their accomodation!! This was the perfect Tweed Coast Wedding experience!!
