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 )
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:)
Mother Nature played kind for James and Jaynes wedding day! The skys were blue and it was the perfect day to brave on foot. They wandered down to their ceremony in the lovely Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane. After their ceremony (created by Burnt Orange Events) we meandered around the gardens for a while taking photos, before making the pilgrimage by foot with the wedding guests across the river to the reception over at the stylish Queensland State Library.
The vibe of the wedding was perfectly relaxed, just like James and Jayne:)
Tom and Siobhan’s wedding so much fun to photograph, there were quite a few shenanigans which kept us laughing all day;)
The day was seamless, with Siobhan getting ready with her girlfriends at her parents beautiful home, to the wedding ceremony being hosted at the picture perfect Stuartholme Chapel in Toowong. The stairs of Sturartholme were adorned with colourful springtime flowers creating such a pretty backdrop for the formal photos! Not to mention the inside of the chapel- the architecture and stained glass was incredible!
The wedding reception was held at Gusto da Gianni, a funky little Italian restaurant at Portside, which had a great vibe for them to party away into the night with their guests:)
Siobhan and Tom, thanks for allowing us to capture your wedding day!
We were really looking forward to photographing Neil and Chiara’s wedding. They live in Western Australia, so we had many conversations on the phone with Neil, and had met with Chiara briefly, but didn’t get a chance to get to know them as a couple until their engagement shoot a couple of days prior to the wedding. (Which was awesome!). They are so adorable together- their smiles radiate off each other into one big ball of crazy happiness!
Brisbane city shone on their wedding day! The bridal party got ready at the gorgeous Hilton. Chiara was adorned in a delicate off the shoulder princess gown looking like picture perfect bride in a romantic fairy-tale Then it was off to the ceremony at the beautiful Holy Spirit chapel in New Farm.
While taking the formal portraits at New Farm Park, we were visited by a small furry guest… Thankfully he refrained from marking his territory!
Once the sun went down, we took a quick stroll on the lit up streets of Brisbane and took some rockin’ night portraits around the city.
We soon arrived back at the Hilton which set the amazing scene for the reception party. (And the bullet elevators provided a bit of fun!) Smiling faces and multi-coloured streamers screamed party time as guests hit the dance floor.
Thanks for inviting us to photograph your wedding!
