Bella Amante Image Art Specialists

Fall in love at first sight with Bella Amante. Bella Amante is a team of photographers and make-up artists based on the Gold Coast, who also enjoys travelling within Australia and world wide for destination weddings. Their intention is to tell a beautiful story for you through images that you will hold in your heart and hands forever. They custom design their approach to suit your style, while always striving to capture the intimate moments of your day with memorable artistic vision. An experience that will last forever, this is Bella Amante's solemn vow.

When asked to choose a favourite image from last year, this image of bride Yvette was the top pick of many beautiful wedding images shot during the year.

“I love the mood we created and the barefoot, elegant feel to this image. It was pouring rain on Yvette and Liam’s day and we had limited time before the reception, so we ducked off to Broadbeach Sofitel’s lobby to create something memorable. I wanted to showcase the layers of Yvette’s stunning Vera Wang and capture her elegance and natural beauty. The rain didn’t dampen her mood and the images that followed created a story for them to cherish. It’s the special little moments that I look back on, reminding me of how much I love what I do.” - Jessica McDonald, Bella Amante Image Art Specialists

A Dreamboat For Your Dream Boat...

When it comes to your big day, you want it to be like a dream - and the aptly named Noosa Dreamboats is a sure way to make that even more likely!

Specialising in romance, from surprise proposals to wedding transportation and pre-reception photos and cruises, Sunshine Coast based 
Noosa Dreamboats Classic Boat Cruises has recently been acknowledged for its amazing contribution to so many special moments. Last month recognised as a Finalist in the 2012 Queensland Tourism Awards, Noosa Dreamboats also recently won the 2012 Tourism Award for best tourism experience at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards.

Owners Michael and Sandy Guthrie are a great example for the love struck couples they spend so much time with, choosing to move to Noosa in 2007 and then starting Noosa Dreamboats together after juggling separate careers and raising a family in Sydney. Now, on private guided tours of the Noosa River and Lakes, their guests experience the glamour, style and excitement of a bygone era on board a gorgeous 1940‘s style speedboat. In addition to wedding cruises, romantic private sandbar picnics and unique special occasion packages with leading Noosa restaurants and spas, Noosa Dreamboats provide the perfect tour of Noosa’s waterways – making any occasion a special experience.

Says Michael, “One of the most rewarding aspects of what we do is helping people to celebrate the special occasions in their lives, such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and marriage proposals. It’s an absolute privilege to be involved in these occasions and to help create memories that can last a lifetime.”
