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! 😀
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!
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!
