Katie and Gerard chose to elope- only instead of keeping it a complete secret, they invited their immediate families to join them.
Katie looked so incredible in her lace sleeved gown and her stunning hair and make-up by The Powder Room.
After their marriage at the registry office, we took a stroll together to the Brisbane botanical gardens for some gorgeous couple photos before heading back to their reception dinner in the spunky Blackbird Restaurants Champagne Room on Eagle Street Pier.
(PS we were stoked to find a gorgeous bus stop “sprinkled with fun”! The slogan just complimented Katie and Gerards happy personalities so well )
The morning started with Remie getting dressed surrounded by her girlfriends and her mother, and was made complete by the delivery of a rose and a sweet note from Paolo as she got ready to head out to marry him. (That’s a bit cute!)
Paolo and Remie were married at Old Government House in Brisbane. What a beautiful venue! Of all our years photographing weddings in Brisbane, this was the first time we had shot a wedding in Government House, needless to say, we were impressed
The photo shoot was a mad rush, from QUT, to Brisbane’s Powerhouse, to the streets surrounding the Marriot at Sunset! The bridal party were fantastic as were Paolo and Remie (if you remember their engagement shoot you will remember it was shot in around 15mins due to manic traffic!!!).
Oh and the the interpretative dancers at the reception deserve a special shout out- they acted out scenes from Paolo and Remies lives. Very very hilarious- and it also shows how loved Paolo and Remie are by their friends.
It was a pleasure to meet you both Thanks for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day!
We were looking forward to Michael and Tegan’s wedding after their amazing Engagement shoot last year (almost a year to the date before the wedding).
I think my fave image of the day would have to be the rose petals… the wedding co-ordinated decided to throw petals at the happy couple as they walked back into Tattersals Club after their wedding photo shoot. Michael looks a little… confused hahahaha! Honestly makes me laugh every time I see it!
Thanks for trusting us to photograph your wedding guys- it was great meeting you and sharing the experience with you. All the best!
