Last week's crazy Brisbane weather threatened to spoil the sunny Aussie wedding planned for Japanese couple Daisuke & Tomoko, but as I found out on the day, the sun always shines on important days for bride Tomoko...and shine it did!
A small group of close family and friends, mostly visiting from Japan, came together at Hillstone, St Lucia, to share the happy nuptials of Tomoko & Daisuke. In a garden ceremony spoken in both English and Japanese, these two beautiful souls were joined in marriage. Though shy and reserved, the two lovebirds are clearly captivated by each other and laughed and smiled throughout their entire gorgeous day.
Enjoy your sneak peek...

I think Daisuke is pleased!

The serious part.
Running the gauntlet of petals and rice after the "I do's"!
All the attending family and friends...time to celebrate!
Very coy...the thought of kissing for the camera made them laugh too much to achieve it!
Returning for a scrumptious lunch, speeches, toasts, laughter, tears and much good cheer!
Congratulations Daisuke & Tomoko!
Thank you for letting me share your day. Wishing you more happiness, new amazing adventures and maybe one day, you might even reach Croatia!
Enjoy Byron Bay and your time with family and friends. What you all have together is precious, a true treasure.
