The aisle was framed by a thick row of shells and church candles, and the couple cheekily got around the Park Ranger’s 6 seat restrictions by custom making 6 extra long log benches for their guests to sit on. Belle and Dan were married under a wild, stick arbour constructed with elements from the island. And not to miss any pretty little details, Belinda even decorated sunscreen, parasols and windmills to give their guests relief from the sun.
The couple share a love of four-wheel driving, and so little touches of this were evident throughout the day. Their wedding rings were presented in a case of mud, their cake was decorated to resemble tyres and customs rings were made by treadz, all symbolizing their second favourite past time. In fact, when we went out for Belle and Dan’s engagement shoot earlier on in the year, guess what we did? We went four-wheel driving with them! Check out their engagement images here.
The bride is one of Brisbane’s best florists. She created her own bouquet with shells from the island. But she didn’t stop there as her creativity knows no bounds. Her guests’ name tags were oyster shells with their names written in calligraphy, there were spare tyres, crab pots, and hand dripped candles. Old ladders, ammunition boxes and over-sized bullets. Fishing baskets, animal skins, and chunks of barnacles. Every single part of this Fraser Island wedding was styled right down to the deer antler toilet roll holder.
Belinda arrived driving her pride and joy “Pradalicious” to a perfectly curated playlist by DJ Brad and the couple said, “Heck yes!” officially tying the knot. This was one of the liveliest receptions we’ve been too, complete with games, emergency evacuations performed by an air steward, and even a streaker! Welcome to Belinda and Dan’s love story.
