Carly + Chris – Cocos (Keeling) Islands

Where to start with this incredible journey.

Cocos (Keeling) Islands is like nowhere I’ve been before.  The purity + clarity of it’s water seems literally unreal.  It’s raw beauty is a sight to behold with it’s millions of palm trees, abundance of coconuts + numerous tropical beaches (27 islands to choose from to be precise).  We saw magical multi-coloured sunrises, deep pink sunsets + crazy black storm clouds transforming the ocean into an even brighter iridescent turquoise.  And don’t even get me started on the magnificent marine life.  An ocean lover’s paradise!

The entire West Island came together for this wedding.  Like everyone!  It was beautiful to witness.  Everyone pitching in, working for days to set up the very magical wedding it was.  Months of collecting drift wood, shells, flotsam such as the glass bottles used for table decorations, painting signs.  You name it.  When you live where most goods need to be brought over by barge or plane it’s pretty amazing what can be created from what is already there.

Carly was a dreamy island Goddess in her bohemian Spell & The Gyspy Collective dress as were her bridesmaids in their lace gowns from the same label.  And yeah, the boys looked pretty darn tropical + handsome too (oh and muchas gracias for the many hours of additional photoshopping horrendous sunburn outa some of your faces fellas).

Anyway, as you will see it was a beautiful celebration of the LOVE these two have for each other.  They met working side by side on a mining site in the dry + stinking hot Pilbara surround by red hot dirt!  So it seemed only fitting they would marry surrounded by blues + greens of cool breezy water + dance the night away in white sand with everyone they love.
