Arjun and Meera, day 2

A while back we shared with you Arjun and Meeras incredible wedding day! It was a full on day, filled with colour, fun, culture and a whole lot of love! The celebrations spread out over two days. So today we are featuring the second day- the reception, where they partied Indian style!

To kick off the day, we caught up with Arjun and Meera at the Surfers Paradise Marriot on the Gold Coast and took a few photos as they got ready for their reception. We quickly ducked out for a super speedy formal wedding photo shoot at Pizzey Park on the Gold Coast. After some quick portraits, we headed back to the Marriot, for their opulent reception. The set up looked incredible!

Just like the day before we just loved the whole vibe of these amazing families. The love Arjun and Meera have for their families, friends and each other was so apparent in every photo. We love how much fun these guys have together and the joy written all over their faces:) So happy we could be there to capture it all for them both!

Enjoy!

After the wedding we had the honour of putting together the most stunning wedding albums for Arjun and Meera. We worked with them to personalise their albums to reflect the glamour of their Indian cultures. We mocked up a design sneakily pulling a motif from their wedding stationary and designed it onto the cover of their album in a beautiful gold leaf! I’m pretty sure they were wowed- well they said yes anyway- and with permission from their wedding stationary designer Little Moo Creative, our wonderful Brisbane based album craftsman had the embossing plate made up, and created for us the most perfect golden foiled wedding albums! We love being able to dream up pretty albums for our gorgeous clients, and have translated perfectly into stunning wedding heirlooms.

The way it sparkles when the light hits the golden foil is a wee bit thrilling! – I’m pretty sure releases endorphins! It seriously made Fiona squeal when she saw it the first time haha. We love our job! And being able to hand something like this over to our couples translates into some crazy work satisfaction!

Casual beach portraits

We love the chilled out nature of our portrait shoots, and how they allow our clients to feel comfortable and be themselves.

We love that these guys bought this quirky portrait for their wall :)

This stunning portrait of the girls also now takes pride of place in their home, along with their gorgeous casual family portrait, laughing together with their feet in the ocean.

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!
