Morgan and Kurt | Beneath the Sperry Tent
Gathered from near and far friends of long-time lovers Morgan and Kurt, watched in anticipation as the duo shared their vows, and exchanged rings, promising each other a lifetime of love.
In awe of the sprawling grassy fields, natural lakes and serene wildlife, the couple took a route less travelled opting for a Sperry Tent. The white roof and all-white decor shone against the lush greens of the Gold Coast hinterland.
Straying away from the wedding norm, this fun-loving couple put directly into their mini wedding cake and kick-started the night with a tequila take on a champagne tower.

After being together six years and having two children together, Kurt decided it was time to propose. Whisking Morgan away on a Valentines Day beach date, he meticulously planned how he was going to ask her to marry him.
However, things went astray when the beach was far windier than anticipated. While Morgan sat on the hill watching the waves and eating fondue, Kurt was off trying to find a ‘sheltered spot’ but instead got busy carving the words ‘Marry Me’ in the sand and filling it with candles.
After waiting some time, Morgan wandered down to the spot, past a guitarist and met with Kurt who was waiting to ask her to be his wife.
Before Morgan could even mention the man serenading the couple, Kurt said ‘I have no idea who this person is, he was just serenading some girls.’
Morgan is best described as an indecisive perfectionist and spent the best part of their six-year engagement looking for the perfect venue.
When Morgan found Gold Coast Farm House on Instagram she booked a viewing immediately. Upon first viewing the couple were awestruck with the beautiful and picturesque views, and booked their wedding that same day.
Our ceremony was hosted by the hilarious and charismatic Married by Michael, he knew exactly how to keep our guests engaged in the ceremony.
We wanted our wedding to be unforgettable so we made sure to have only the dream team of vendors. Our day kicked off with a surprise gelato cart post ceremony by Wheel and Spoon. Our guests got to choose from delicious Pistachio, Choc Mint or Ferrero Rocher gelato to enjoy in the sun.
Cocktail hour and dinner was hosted by In Season Catering, with their delicious shared dining menu providing stand out food and beverages. The mood was kept lively all night with tunes played by We R DJ’s.
The day was captured by the talented Black Palm Collective Co and videography done by Luke Bickley Weddings, this duo created the most magical memories of our day that we can’t wait to frame on our walls.
Bride Morgan glowed as she walked down the aisle to a cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story’, a song that represents the couple’s relationship well.
Later the couple shared their first dance to Kurt Hugo Schneider and Alex Blue’s cover of All Of The Stars by Ed Sheeran.
Keeping to the all-white theme, Morgan trusted no one other than Baby Doll Blooms for her floral arrangements and bouquets. With full blooms of baby’s breath and the occasional white orchid decorating the arbour and Sperry Tent, these arrangements were likened to being surrounded by clouds.
Bride Morgan looked all the part of classic elegance in a simple white gown with flowy sleeves and V neckline by Destiny Chic. Natural hair and makeup by Blush’d Brides kept Morgan looking stunning and effortless all night. Not afraid of a statement accessory, Morgan added bold floral earrings to complete her look.
Kurt kept to the all-white look with a cream suit from Politix. The bridal party kept to neutral tones in their muted green and tan dresses and cream suits.
Of course marrying the love of your life is a big highlight, but we felt truly blessed to have the clouds part moments before our ceremony and to have the sun shining down throughout the rest of the day.
We wanted to go just left of centre for our reception- doing a tequila tower instead of a champagne tower. This was a fun take that had all of our guests partying all night long.
Everyone who goes to weddings knows that the cake rarely gets eaten, so we opted for a small cake that we bit straight into instead of cutting. This made for super fun photos and was very us.
If we could only give one piece of advice to any future couples it would be to just stop and take it all in. The day goes so fast, so make sure to whisk yourself away for a special quiet moment together to really soak in the newly wed moment.
The moment it hits you- that you are finally husband and wife- is the most exciting and loving moment you could possibly share together.
