Louise & Manzil married at their elegant beach wedding on May 5, 2018 with 50 guests at Jonah’s Boutique Restaurant and Hotel. By then, our couple had welcomed a baby daughter. “We needed our venue to be child-friendly and having accommodation attached was a bonus,” says our bride. “Most of all with a newborn and wedding planning I wanted to make sure it was budget-friendly but still spectacular.”

Our groom and his dashing crew were dressed by Ferrari Formalwear and Bridal.

When it came to the wedding dress...“My dress was the first dress I tried on and it matched my mother’s veil that has been passed on for generations,” says the bride.

Talking about their wedding venue choice, “Manzil surfs every weekend and I was envisioning a barn wedding – Jonah’s allowed us to combine our styles,” smiles Louise.

“Manzil [29] and I met in New York in 2012 we were both travelling with friends, and one day I was trying to take a selfie with a friend failing hopelessly when Manzil walked past and noticed our Australian accents and offered to take the photo for us,” says Louise, 30. The pair hit it off and agreed to catch up upon returning home. From there, they were a couple!

“I didn’t cry when I saw Manzil but I cried when I saw the florals that were created,” laughs the bride.

The pair had a day wedding and opted for an elegant but informal style. “I loved the barn door with pastels hung on the while wall, and I used wooden timber boxes to match them for the table florals,” says the bride. “The floral wreaths were so beautiful and made the small space smell like fresh flowers.”

We had a great time with the bride and groom after the wedding ceremony. The Northern Beaches of Sydney offers some of the best wedding photography locations with long sandy beaches and high clifftops and rocks.
