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!

Emma + James

I love that all my couples are different,and that my weddings don't fit the cookie cutter mould- white poofy dress scenario. Sometimes couples are low key & sweet, like James and Emma so it's fitting that their wedding was too! I met James and Emma the day before their wedding at Walkabout Creek. This is a bit unusual for me, as normally I have months to get to know and plan a wedding day, but James and Emma had popped over from the UK and decided to get hitched whilst home in Queensland, among family, friends and the gum trees! I loved them instantly and was super excited to be their photographer. They had an intimate mid-morning ceremony by the creek, followed by a lunch at local Ashgrove cafe, The Hub. A wedding doesn't have to be big, OTT or stressful to be beautiful and capture the love of two individuals and James and Emma's love shone through!  What a wonderful whirlwind it was- check out some of the highlights below...

Stef + Callum

Stefanie and Callum were married on the lawn beside the Brisbane River at The Landing at Dockside, followed by their reception under a sky of fairy lights. The couple had put a lot of work into their big day and it showed with a smooth and chilled wedding and reception. Just as they went to tie the knot, someone flew past on a jet ski yelling 'DON'T DO IT!' which had the crowd in hysterics. I'm certainly glad they did go through with it as they are an awesome couple and it was an incredible reception! Champagne flowed, the musician was awesome, guests enjoyed the Frankly Booth and the Groom Callum gave the best speech I've ever heard! Congrats Stef and Callum! xx
