Jade & Khyles Wedding 17th July 2016


17th July 2016

In a huge DIY effort, Jade and Khyle were married in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Brisbane couple, Jade and Khyle, tended as lovingly to their DIY wedding as they do one another on the daily. The pair enlisted the help of family and friends to decorate Obi Obi Hall for their catered reception, attended by 70 guests, to their exact vision. It was to be a sweet country affair, which first kicked off in a picture perfect ceremony at Anna Bella The Wedding Chapel.

When first planning their wedding, unfortunately there was a change of date, because the groom was deployed! Australian Defence Force Mechanic, Khyle, did his duty and a new date was chosen this year in April. Their Autumn country hall wedding in the Sunshine Coast hinterland turned out absolutely beautifully.

“We were so proud of our (decorating) effort, and it looked exactly the way we wanted it to. We had “The Spit Roast Company” come out and do a massive buffet with a selection of roasted meats, vegetables, salads, and desserts. It was amazing!”

Wedding Secrets:

Biggest splurge: Photography for sure! We wanted to have something special to remind us of our amazing day, and I believe we couldn’t have done better than Matt and Amanda Rowe! The photos speak for themselves. 

Best money-saver: We decorated the entire reception ourselves, and planned everything. We had fake flowers for all the decorations, and fresh only for our bouquets.
