Cairns Treehouse Wedding – Brendon and Sarah

Cairns Wedding Photography

Nestled away in a beautiful treehouse located in the tropical surrounds of Cairns, a small collection of people got together to celebrate the wedding of two people in love. The mood was joyous and intimate, and even more so due to a light sprinkling of rain.

Everyone was beyond excited for Brendan and Sarah as today there was going to be a wedding! Not just any wedding, their wedding!

Due to the recent COVID restriction couples everywhere have had to rethink their original plans just as these two had. And as a result, the guest list was significantly smaller for in-person guests. However, it was not significantly smaller in attendance! Friends and family connected virtually from near and far. And despite the distance, their presence was certainly felt in the room.

Both, Sarah and Brendan wrote beautifully personal vows that were not just heartfelt but also filled with little quirks that are unique to the two of them. This made the vows even more special for us all to witness.

After the ceremony, we all enjoyed an incredible spread provided by Sarah, an incredibly warm and generous friend to Sarah and Brendan. The rain made the whole atmosphere even cosier for the small group of friends.

This Cairns Treehouse Wedding had all the feels of an old school wedding. One that I remember from my childhood where those around a couple would support, nurture and provide a beautiful space for them to get married and share their love.
