Natalie & Shaun’s Uki Country Wedding

022-NatShaun

There was so much to love about Natalie and Shaun’s country wedding – it was small, simple and so much fun. The ceremony was full of warm-hearted heckling from their closest friends and family; their wedding jewellery symbolism extended beyond the rings to a gorgeous necklace for their daughter Bianca; there were tears and jokes and perfect sunshine fading over the lakeside lawn as Mt Warning slowly cast it’s shadow over Uki. There’s nothing quite like a winter wedding.

Thank you to the fabulous vendors who helped make the day completely stunning!

Ashley & Curtis’ Brisbane City Wedding

001-Boyle

I have a slightly unusual stance on traditions. I love the idea of following a tradition that was set down by family, that carries meaning, and that brings with it wonderful memories of days gone by. I don’t love the idea of following traditions for traditions sake, without understanding the meaning – and that’s why I’m all for throwing tradition out the window if my couples wish to do so.

Ashley and Curtis began their epic love at age 18 – just like Ashley’s parents. A lovely (if not somewhat coincidental) tradition. Ashley proposed to Curtis at the Grand Canyon, and of course he said yes. A lovely break from tradition! Their wedding day was very similar – a mixture of the traditions they loved and some new traditions of their own;  of old world glamour with a 2016 twist; of tears and laughter and family and friends. It was a joy to capture and I’m so excited to share their images.

The Spuravs Family

I first met Kristy and Oskars when I photographed Kristy’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, and I had the honour of photographing their wedding in 2014 too. It was great meeting up again to capture their growing family – when we shot these photos Kristy was just days away from giving birth to their new little angel Emily, and Rose was super-excited to meet her new sibling! It was a lovely afternoon of smiles, snuggles and the most spectacular sunset.

Jen & Dave’s Crystal Creek Wedding

When Jen enrolled in a cooking class in Crystal Creek with Artisan Wholefoods, she and Dave thought hey, maybe we should get married while we’re at it. Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is famous for being an incredibly romantic elopement destination, but Jen and Dave decided to have their closest friends and family around them for their big moment – including a long-distance Skype connection with Dave’s son. Technology! Jen made her gorgeous button bouquet herself (and Dave’s little buttonhole), the ceremony was officiated by the lovely Lucille Van Ligten of Ceremonies by Celebrant, and the cake was crafted by Jen’s friend and teacher Jean Martinez of Artisan Wholefoods.

Ashley & Curtis’ Mt Coot-Tha Engagement Session

015-AshCurt

There’s just something about these two. Both old souls with young hearts, and an old romance to match, Ashley and Curtis’ April wedding day is set to be a spectacular event with a 1920s flair and all the love you could dream of. We spent an afternoon touring the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-Tha, capturing these delicate and dreamy images and sharing stories. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding day in just over a month!
