It was such pleasure to photograph Ricardo and Emmas wedding. We photographed Emma’s sister Sarah’s wedding quite a few years back now, so it was nice to catch up with the family again, and be trusted to document such an important family occasion again!
Charlie and Emma decided to rent a house for the week of their wedding. Living in North Queensland, and travelling to the Gold Coast for the celebrations, renting a home to spend time with loved ones was such a great decision! There was so much laughter from upstairs where the girls were getting ready, and downstairs where the lads were scrubbing up, and it made for such beautiful photographs of their morning wedding preparations, and I’m sure such great memories of time spend together.
Charlie had wanted to go bare foot to the wedding (considering it was 40degrees, it would not have been a bad idea!) but Emma didn’t like the idea… so Charlie decided to get creative hahah!
Yes these are the shoes he wore ALLLL day, and Emma was none the wiser until it was revealed at the Wedding reception. I don’t even know how he kept these on straight all day- that is some mad skills!!!
This is what 40 degrees looks like on a wedding day! This little bad boy was snapped up seconds later;)
Peep toes!!! So funny! Chatting about this later, Emma said she thought it was weird when Adam directed Charlie to put his legs out straight in front of him. Once she found out about the souless shoes, it all made sense;)
Charlie is an engineer and designed this incredible cake! Their cake maker did a beautiful job of putting it together!
Their reception was held at the Southport Yacht Club.
This spunky whanau came to us wanting to capture some family portraits, and to also to have a gender reveal portrait taken- for those wondering what on earth a “gender reveal portrait” is, it’s basically a fun way to let your friends and family know the sex of your bub without just coming out and telling them straight up! So this time, it meant a photo of the family with a cute little bunch of balloons in a colour representative of bubs gender. Cute!
So Dave and Kate you say? Yes, this is our third “Dave and Kate” couple we have photographed a wedding for- it seems the names are just made for each other. Somehow we didn’t notice until a few weeks ago, they also shared the same last name as one of our other favourite “Dave and Kate” couples which gave us a bit of a laugh!!!
So here we are, playing catch up again. Dave and Kate were married back in January, and we can’t wait to share some of their pretty pictures, but everything in order! First here are some of their beautiful engagement photos we took late last year on a warm summers afternoon on the Gold Coast. Dave’s gorgeous son stole the spotlight in a few photos too- what a cutie!
Fiona and Kate used to work together years ago at Photo Continental when Kate was still in high school, so it was so lovely to get the call to say she was getting married and wanted Deep Grey to photograph her wedding! Kate is such a sweetheart – it was an honour to photograph these two tie the knot!
