Despite a drizzly day and ominous skies, Jill and Kai’s rainforest wedding at Montville’s Secrets on the Lake was still picture-perfect and we can’t get enough of Janneke Storm’s gorgeous frames. With the pitter-patter of rain, Jill’s celestial gown and some possums and kookaburras dropping by to seek shelter, this wedding couldn’t have been more magic.
We love a creative proposal and Kai’s certainly meets the criteria. With a reservation at their first date restaurant, Kai presented Jill with a box of customised Lego people made especially to look like them, the female one even wore a tiny argyle diamond! “When I opened the box all I could say is “What is this? What are they doing?’” Laughs Jill. “Kai said, “They are doing what I’m about to do…” then got down on one knee in the middle of the very busy restaurant!
This nature-loving pair wanted an intimate ceremony and relaxed reception and although they’d planned to hold the entire wedding outdoors, the rain only held off long enough for them to say “I do”. The rest of the evening was relocated to the onsite restaurant and they kept the good times rolling post-wedding, inviting their guests to spend the following day with them on the Sunshine Coast at Aussie World – what’s a wedding without a little adventure?
