Arjun and Meera

We have been looking forward to sharing Meera and Arjun’s incredible Brisbane Hindu wedding- we had a crazy fun time photographing their two day wedding extravaganza. We loved the colour, the culture and the beaming smiles at every turn.

Arjun and Meera, you host a mean party!

Thanks to Tanya for coming along to help out over the two days:)

When Arjun and Meera told us they were having a Barat parade we were crazy excited. It’s pretty much a fancy street party! Arjun arrived by horse and carriage, and was greeted Bollywood style by his family and friends, who then accompanied him in a street parade, complete with drums and dancing to the door of the Temple.

The wedding ceremony was full of traditions and customs that were so beautiful to photograph. Arjun and Meera decided to combine elements from both Gujarati Hindu and Punjabi Hindu wedding traditions, to reflect both of their heritages.

As part of the wedding ceremony, Arjun lead Meera in Saptapadi, the first 7 steps they take in their journey of life together and each step signifying their vows to one another:

1. Together we will nourish, honour and respect each other

2. Together we will cherish each other in sickness and in health, in sorrow and happiness, and through life’s trials and triumphs

3. Together we work hard and achieve success by righteous means and diligence

4. Together we will value and respect each other’s feelings and needs

5. Together we will love our children as our parents loved us

6. Together we will aim in this life to grow socially, intellectually and spiritually

7. Together we will live a long, healthy and a happy life filled with love and laughter

Sam from Perfect Media flew up from Sydney to film Arjun and Meera’s wedding. (He is the BOSS of Indian weddings). We had a ball working alongside each other and riding the horses up and down the road waiting for the Barat parade to begin;)

Steven and Amanda

Amanda and Steven were married in the ever lovely Montville in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, in a quite little park, just tucked away out of view of the busy hustle and bustle of the sweet little town.

We love the vibrant colours they incorporated into their wedding decor and wedding threads- and love they they stayed true to their personal styles. The day was bright, beautiful and fun, just like the couple themselves:) (Steven I love that you got to wear high-tops to your wedding:D)

Amanda looked stunning in her one of a kind Sew Bespoke dress with flowers in her hair. The incredible floral wreath and bridal bouquet were created by Willow Bud, and Amanda lovingly made the bridesmaids adorable colourful jewellery. Amanda gave her bridesmaids free range with their dresses, and saw the dresses all together for the first time of the day of the wedding- it all came together beautifully! The sunflowers mixed with the bright red and coral orange bridesmaid dresses looked amazing.

The reception kicked off at Wild Rocket @ Misty’s in Montville, which provided the perfect atmosphere for their intimate reception.

Congratulations to you Steven and Amanda, and also to your beautiful girls! You have such a lovely little family:) We can’t wait to finish off your wedding album for you to relive your wedding day day with your girls for many years to come.

Geoff and Rachael

We were really looking forward to photographing Rachael and Geoff get married. They are two beautiful souls, and the whole wedding was just a massive ball of sweet emotion. We have known and worked with Geoff on a number of occasions over the past few years, as he kicks around the Brisbane/Gold Coast wedding scene as a kick-butt wedding cinematographer (He is the creative genius behind Motion Art). We were excited to finally meet Rachael in the lead up to their wedding. She is just as stunning on the inside as she is on the outside:)

Geoff (being an American and all- we forgive him, mainly just because he married Rachael so is pretty much a bona fide Australian now) and Rachael decided to have a “first look” (which is a bit of an American wedding trend) prior to heading off to Sirromet for their wedding ceremony – to get out the jitters and have a few moments alone… It was so beautiful. We headed to Gold Coast’s Pizzey Park, which set such a romantic scene. The looks on their faces when they checked each other our for the first time in their wedding wares, was just priceless:)

I love how awestruck Geoff looks even though he and Rachael had already spent some time together for their First Look… It was like he was seeing her for the first time all over again… adorable! :D

Geoff’s first and only choice as their wedding celebrant was Clarah Luxford who is a fantastic celebrant, and dear friend to he and Rachael- they too met through the wedding industry working together on countless weddings!

Geoff and Rachael opted for classic simplistic styling for their ceremony and reception decor, and employed the help of Beautiful Wedding Australia to create this for them. I must say I’m impressed- Geoff and Rach didn’t want any input into the design- they basically just told their stylist to create something simple- Rach didn’t even know what her bouquet would look like!Sirromet Wedding Photography_72Sirromet Wedding Photography_70 Sirromet Wedding Photography_71Sirromet Wedding Photography_74Sirromet Wedding Photography_73Sirromet Wedding Photography_75GR-584 Sirromet Wedding Photography_76 Sirromet Wedding Photography_77 Sirromet Wedding Photography_78 Sirromet Wedding Photography_79 Sirromet Wedding Photography_80 Sirromet Wedding Photography_81 Sirromet Wedding Photography_82 Sirromet Wedding Photography_83 Sirromet Wedding Photography_84 Sirromet Wedding Photography_85Sirromet Wedding Photography_87 Sirromet Wedding Photography_88Sirromet Wedding Photography_89Sirromet Wedding Photography_86
And last but not least, you must check out Geoff and Rachael’s wedding story captured by the incredible Abe from Untitled Film Works. He is based in Sydney, but Geoff who’s work and passion is wedding cinema, couldn’t resist flying Abe up to Brisbane capture the occasion!…
Check it out- it’s wowzers!

Matthew and Amy

Amy and Matthew couldn’t have asked for a dreamier wedding day! Surrounded by incredible people, amazing weather, and picture perfect surrounds. They were married in St Mary’s Catholic Church in Beaudesert which is a hidden gem! The beautiful chapel made for a stunning backdrop for them to be married. The Father was such a lovely man, and preformed a sweet & touching ceremony for Matt and Amy.

I find it funny that Amy and Matthew were so nervous about being photographed prior to their engagement photo session- you can read about that (here). Once again, they rocked it out in front of the camera with nothing but graciousness. They are so comfortable and relaxed around each other which always make for beautiful photographs.

After the ceremony and some photos around the chapel, Amy and Matt headed over to their reception venue Albert River Wines. Albert River is always a favourite wedding venue of ours – there is always so much colour and character in the landscape all year round no matter what the season, and always plenty of space for a rockin’ party once the formalities are finished! (And who doesn’t love a pony at a wedding:D)

Enjoy!

Daniel and Sara

How do we sum up Daniel and Sara and their wedding day? I think mentioning the first time we met them they were dressed as Mario and Luigi and had massive smiles on their faces probably sums up their personalities quite nicely! Their wedding day was a joy to photograph. Sara was a rock-star princess dressed by George Wu, Dan dressed in Wil Valor looked incredibly dashing and couldn’t wipe the smile off his face upon seeing Sara walking down the aisle. He was mesmerised.

We love it when we meet a couple who wear their hearts on their sleeves. Every emotion felt is radiated on their faces, and it is what makes us fall in love with what we do again and again.

Daniel and Sara came to us by way of fate- they entered “Race to the Altar” and as luck would have it- they won their dream wedding!

We loved spoiling them with incredible prizes from us- Deep Grey, and also a string of fabulous Brisbane wedding suppliers including Spring Brisbane, Xennox Diamonds, Motion Art, Wil Valor, George Wu, Sofitel Brisbane Central, Shoes of Prey, Creative Little Studio, The Beauty Case, Mayfield Chocolates, Blossom Beauty Studio, Ceremonies & Celebrations, Styled Events, Gillian Bell Cake, Butterfly Lounge, Holden Oldies, Main Event Weddings, Weddingstar!

We hope you enjoy looking through a snapshot of their wedding day!

Sara and Daniel we wish you all the best as you start your lives together as husband and wife- we are glad you entered Race to the Altar- it was a pleasure to get to know you both, and to photograph your love on your wedding day!

I thought I would post a few photos of the beautiful album we created with Daniel and Sara. We never feel like our work is truly done until we hand over these incredible keepsakes. Daniel commented how he loved the tactileness of the album, how it looked, felt and the thickness of the pages… It’s true- seeing and touching your wedding album for the first time is pretty exciting. Images displayed on a screen will never quite compare to the vibrancy of a photographic print, lovingly bound into a handcrafted leather album and the feeling of taking it home, snuggling up on the couch and reliving all of your crazy antics and romantic moments all over again, and again, and again:)
