Belinda and James’… Beach Wedding Palm Cove Cairns

Belinda and James started dating when they were 17.

Little did they know then that five years later they would be engaged and saying their vows on a beach in the tropics at the same time a Category Two Cyclone was bearing down on the Far North Queensland coast.

But Cyclone Zane amounted to zip and the wedding went ahead as planned on the golden sand under the palm trees just north of Cairns.

From Melbourne, the high school sweethearts decided they wanted a destination wedding and Palm Cove was the place.

Belinda asked Rhiannon, her cousin, to be her bridesmaid and families from both sides made the flight from Victoria to Cairns to celebrate this special day with Belinda and James.

Booked into Island Views that’s where we went to do hair and makeup for Belinda, Rhiannon and the mother of the bride Lisa.

Both blonde, Belinda and Rhiannon had beautiful long hair which we curled and pinned to protect it from the winds of Zane.

Rhiannon wore a lilac bridesmaids dress so we chose a gorgeous purple eyeshadow to match and for Belinda we worked browns, bronzes and soft pinks to create a natural glow.

Having had the pleasure of doing makeup and hair for weddings in Far North Queensland for quite a number of years now it’s not often you meet a new face in the industry but on this occasion Tamara popped up and boy are we glad she did!

Tamara Kate Photography is her business name and Tam told us she was just starting out…the wedding of Belinda and James was to be her first on camera and she was so grateful for the opportunity and faith they had in her.

No faith necessary – Tam did an amazing job and has such a bright future ahead!

Congratulations Belinda and James! It was lovely spending the morning with you… thanks for letting us share one small part of your special day!
