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!

Keippa + Jake

I first met Keippa and Jake at a wedding expo, and despite meeting hundreds of people that day I clearly remember my conversation with Keippa about traveling to some place called Drake,having no idea where it was and eargerly agreeing to travel there (I'm always up for an adventure) Fast forward several months later to May 2017, and Phoebe and I are on an eventful road trip to Drake,N.S.W for an amazing adventure wedding weekend! I have never seen a bride and groom put so much thoughtful detail into a wedding. This wedding required months and months of work getting a vacant property wedding-ready! No running water, getting the shed cleared, marquee set up, bringing in toilets, hay bails , each chair, table setting & glass collected and painted, trees cleared, a bridge built! It was epic..and so worth it! The whole wedding party, 100 people strong, came together to pitch in and get jobs done to create a rather spectacular ceremony and reception. With any great plan, things go wrong- it flooded the day before the wedding- no problem said coordinator Melissa- we'll put hay down, and build a stage for the Frankly Booth! The bride can no longer arrive via helicopter...no problem! We'll spray paint this old ute gold and still make a grand entrance! After firing his shot gun, Keippa's Dad showed his softer side, singing his little girl down the isle while I blubbered away like a baby and tried to keep my camera still! Family and friends chipped in to make it happen. They camped on the property that Keippa (Bride) spent her childhood visiting for camping trips, while the Bridal party got ready at the Drake Hotel. The big advantage of a reception like this is no curfew, no noise complains, which meant they could party long into the night, dancing away to the band, Occa Rock(so awesome!)with family members also busting out a tune (and I mean busting, like woah, this family has pipes!)  and enjoying a delicious country roast by In Good Taste Catering.

Keippa & Jake- it was all so worth it! What wonderful memories you will have. Thank you for the country hospitality- we'll come back any time!

The best of 2016!

As 2016 has drawn to a close I took some time to look back on 2016 and all the incredible things I got to be a part of! It got a bad wrap, but for me 2016 was pretty wonderful-  I met so many amazing people, saw beautiful ceremonies and got to travel to some incredible places. Heres some of my favourite moments.  I'm so looking forward to 2017 and everything it brings!
