Sally and Neil (two of the sweetest souls I’ve met) got married at Sally’s family holiday home at Coasters Retreat. It’s a tiny community tucked away on Pittwater that can only be accessed by boat from Palm Beach wharf. It’s a very special place for their family spending the summer here for a few generations. Now made even the more special having tied the knot here in front of the ones they love the most.
Because it can only be accessed by boat there was a lot of hard work logistically that went into getting everything just right with lots of family and friends chipping in.
The relaxed atmosphere of their picnic wedding was so much fun to photograph. If you’re thinking about an afternoon picnic wedding you should definitely do it. One of my faves for sure!
