Sometimes in life it’s the simple things that mean the most and Sonia and Brendan’s idea to elope to Coolum one morning with no one but themselves was one of these beautiful moments.
Wrapped in a white bed sheet, (so that Brendan couldn’t see the dress) my beautiful couple jumped in their car to travel from Brisbane on a Friday morning and arrived at First Bay in Coolum for their secret ceremony. The touching ceremony was conducted by lovely Sunshine Coast Celebrant Kristy Ellis underneath the shade of a Pandanus Tree overlooking the surf. Kristy’s beautiful Mum came along to act as a witness and my wonderful husband acted as the videographer. (I have to point out that he is totally hopeless with holding a video camera still so this was a real challenge but he did his very best I’m sure). It was an honor for me to be asked to act as second witness and an absolute pleasure to share this very special wedding on such a perfect sunny day with such a beautiful couple.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Ruyg!
