Steph & Mitch had an epic vision of getting Hitched In Paradise at their fav place, Dreamtime Beach, in the paradise of Fingal!! Fingal is a gorgeous small village on the Tweed River, a true gem!! With views south to Kingscliff, out to Cook Island and North to Point Danger, there's so many beautiful locations within a 5 minute walk!! They wanted to bring their pooches along for the ceremony and luckily this beach is Dog Friendly!! With just 10 VIP's along for the ride, this was a perfect Tweed Coast Elopement on such a perfect day. The sun was shining, the sky blue and the glistening ocean breaking just meters from the ceremony space. Table of Jewles set up their chairs in a semi circle, alleviating an "aisle" and it made everyone feel inclusive of their importance in this experience!! Lolas Wildflowers created some gorgeous blooms for our Bride and our driftwood arbor.
Steph & Mitch's awesome Love Story began thanks to their mutual love of creating Music!! In the last couple of years of High School they were in the same circle of humans who performed as musicians. Mitch was in awe of Steph's singing abilities and told her one day he would make her his wife. She mentioned that he'd have to wait for that chance and we soon find them on their first date. Mitch was busking in Byron and asked Steph to come along with him! It was on this date in Byron, where they got hilariously lost on a country road, as Mitch was trying to find the right place to ask her to be his girlfriend. She said yes, he was stoked, he busked and made a total of $8.00 that night!! They soon shacked up after school, got themselves a fur child and then Mitch finally had the chance to ask Steph to be his wife, the time just right!!
This ceremony was really awesome, honest and heartfelt!! There were happy tears in the Vows and a huge cheer when they became husband and wife!! Their dog high threw down High 5's in the ceremony, to top it all off!! We played some Metal in the ceremony, which reflected back to their early days when Mitch was playing this particular song in his car. I Love me a bit of Metal, so I was throwing down the horns!! The photos around the Cylindrical Volcanic rocks are just breathtaking!! Our wizard photographer Bird & Boy Photography definitely knows all the secret spots from here to Byron Bay!! The experience was finished with a ride in Vintage Wagen Kombi, where the night was celebrated in Coolangatta with the wedding guests!! Our hearts were so full after helping Mitch & Steph achieve the perfect elopement experience!!
What the Couple said: Tarnie, Ben and our HIP vendors made our dream wedding a reality!! We didn't have too many specific requests, except for that we wanted a relaxed and fun vibe for our ceremony, which Ben gave effortlessly!! We had so much fun on the day but what made it so special was that throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding, Mitch and I were able to focus on each other!! This was due to Tarnie's impeccable organisation!! Our wedding was EASY and INEXPENSIVE and just so darn beautiful!! I don't know why anyone would want to do their wedding any other way! Thank you HIP Team, you're absolute legends!!
