Bree + Oli

Oh my heart! Not only was it stunningly beautiful, with some of the most touching words spoken and sentimental touches but the bride Bree and I go way back, which always makes it that little bit more special to capture. I had to hide those tears behind the camera often that’s for sure!

Bree and Oli have one of those lovely ‘whoops we did it backwards’ stories, finding out they were pregnant with gorgeous little Arden and then choosing to marry when he was old enough to be part of their day (or steal the show, deciding it was a great idea to hand rocks to Dad during the ceremony!) Their love for each other and their little boy shone so brightly all day.

Bree and her awesome bridal party got ready at in The Garden Burees of Byron Bay, while the groomsmen spent the morning on site at Fig Tree. Oli, being from England had family, including some of his groomsmen fly over for the wedding. His Mum giving him special gifts from relatives at home before the ceremony and explaining their importance was the sweetest.

Bree arrived, Byron style, in a funky forever kombi and was walked down the isle by her two bridesmaids, bridesmale and her Dad. A simple yet stunning ceremony followed by canapes and drinks for the guests while we stuck off to a nearby location for photos and then back to join guests for the party! As the sun went down guests were serenaded by the unbelievably talented Hailey Calvert and then enjoyed a festival style feast, tear-jerking speeches, first dance under the stars (and sparklers) many laughs in the Frankly booth and one heck of a dance off.

Oh what a night! Congratulations Bree & Oli & Arden!

Bethany + Adrian

Bethany and Adrian were married on Saturday 21st April 2018 at Stuartholme Chapel in Toowong. Bethany is a past student of Stuartholme, and at the moment only past students and their families are able to be wed in the chapel, making it a pretty special experience....seriously- that stained glass- Woah!

The guys spent the morning at Adrians family home, the girls at Bethany's mums place, coming together with family and friends for the ceremony in Toowong, bridal photos at Mt Coot-tha and the super beautiful reception at The Loft in Westend (I love this venue!) where they partied on with the Nick Trovas Band. It was a super lovely day and such a gorgeous, kind and chilled out couple! Congratulations Bethany & Adrian!

Jaclyn + Dan

I knew from Jaclyn's very first inquiry that I was going to love these two! Jac was so genuinely polite, and when she called me a few days later to thank me for being her photographer it was confirmed...I have the.best.couples!

Jac and Dan were married on Friday 25th August 2017 in the Brisbane City Botanical gardens. Everything was elegant and simple in the best possible way! Jac got ready at the Quay West Hotel just across the road, meaning she could literally catch the lift down and walk down the isle. With no bridal party, but a tribe of the cutest flowergirls and page boy the ceremony (conducted by Paul Redfern) went off without a hitch! It was truely a beautiful Friday afternoon in the park! After the formalities Jac and Dan wandered around the gardens for some portraits, with us all being in love with the beautiful big figs in the gardens!

We then headed down the road to Moda restuarant for their reception. They put on the most delicious paella and everyone enjoyed a relaxed dinner and drinks. Check out that cake, made by no other than the Brides mother! (Well done Mum!)

So much love to these two, congratulations Jac & Dan!
