Todd & Hannah | Wedding | Thornton | 27th September 2014

Over this past weekend, I had the pleasure of heading out to the country for the beautiful wedding of Hannah and Todd. And wow! What a wedding it was. I have actually been really struggling on how to word the experience of being part of their special day. I honestly have never felt so special as a wedding photographer and every single person at the wedding made both Mary and I feel incredibly welcome, like we were also family. Todd and Hannah only made the decision just over 3 months ago to plan and have their wedding due to some family circumstances and I was completely blown away as to how beautiful and well it had all come together in such a small timeframe. From Hannah’s gorgeous lace gown, to the hand made ring boxes to the cute little signs throughout the day. Every thing was perfect – including the weather. We had such blue skies, a sprinkling of cloud and while everyone else was ducking for cover from storms, the storm appear and went around. It truly was a magical day.

We started the day with the boys getting ready just down the road from the ceremony. The boys were so much fun to photograph and Hannah had thought a lot about all the little details. Todd and each of his groomsmen all had little survival kit goodie bags just to make sure they had everything they need (including their toothbrushes) to relax and enjoy the day. I know that this is one of the many reasons why Todd loves Hannah – she is so incredibly thoughtful and caring. Then it was off down the road to photograph the girls getting ready. Hannah was just finishing off her makeup (by Kara from Ella Bache Ipswich) as we arrived. Again, there was so many sweet details and I just loved the unique look of the bridesmaids!! Hannah was super excited to be getting married and was such a joy to photograph!

After some gorgeous photos with the girls, it was off to the Lavender Farm for the beautiful ceremony officiated but the lovely Cathy. There were so many gorgeous moments throughout the ceremony – Hannah’s Dad walking her down the isle, Autumn the little flower girl hesitating walking down the aisle only to then stand in front of everyone and say “Ow’, followed by the beautiful personalised vows that Hannah and Todd wrote for each other and a gorgeous rope hand fasting ceremony where they ended with a sparkly kiss.

Then it was off around the farm for some beautiful bridal portraits. We had the most amazing afternoon sunlight in the barley fields where Todd loved running through like a Giselle. A few more schengians and a whole lot of fun we worked out way in and around the farm and back to the Marquee where all the guests were mingling while we were having photos. Todd and Hannah then rocked it out with an epic dance to enter the reception. After a great (and super filling) dinner, we headed outdoors to play around with some sparklers and the stars before we headed back in for some beautiful speeches, a very special father daughter dance and we ended the night with an epic sparkler run.

Thank you again so much Hannah and Todd for the privilege of asking us to photograph your wedding day. We seriously felt like photographic royalty all day and just had an absolute blast. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and I can’t wait to show you the rest!

Amy & Matt | E-Shoot | Gatton | 21st September 2014

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful engagement session of Amy & Matt. We met out on a farm just south of Gatton at Amy’s Grandparent’s farm. The farm has been in the family for four generations and is the location where her Mum and Dad were married. Amy spent a lot of time during school holidays at the farm so it was special for me to be able to head out there and capture their love in a place that holds such special meaning. Amy & Matt are a gorgeous couple. They were so easy to photograph and are totally in love with one another. They would also do anything for anyone. I am so looking forward to photographing their wedding in the new year. I know it is going to be an incredibly special day. Thank you so much for inviting me out to the farm. It was such a fun afternoon and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.

Paul & Emily | Wedding | Springfield Lakes | 20th September 2014

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Paul and Emily. Paul and Emily’s love story is a unique one. They met as kids, became friends, lost contact and with the invention of Facebook, reconnected and fell in love. They had been planning their wedding from afar and after many months and lots of hard work, a beautiful day was had.

We started the day with the boys at Paul’s parents place. The boys were all cool calm and collected and Paul looked very spiffy in his 3 piece suit. I just love the little leggo cufflinks that he had on his jacket. We were lucky enough to dodge the shower of rain that came over as photos were happening and before we knew it, it was time to visit the girls. The girls were getting ready at the beautiful Stamford Plaza where there was a lot more happening. Emily was looking beautiful in her gorgeous gown and veil and all of her little flower girls were just too cute! After some gorgeous photos, we were off to Springfield Lakes for the ceremony.

A gorgeous ceremony was had while over looking the Lake, the celebrant Barry officiated a beautiful heartfelt ceremony where Paul and Emily became husband and wife. A new little ceremony that I had not witnessed yet as a wedding photographer was the love lock ceremony. Both Emily and Paul had a little love heart lock on a chain that they locked and then threw their keys into the lake. This symbolised the love and commitment that they made to each other at that moment would never be broken or unlocked. Such a beautiful sentiment. After some beautiful personalised vows, Barry pronounced them husband and wife.

Then it was time for some family photographs before we headed off around the Lake for some beautiful bridal portraits. The photos were lots of fun and the littlies were such troopers and gave us some fun photographs. After the sun had set, it was time to head up to the Springfield Lakes Hotel for the reception to celebrate with the newlyweds. Emily was incredibly thoughtful by providing a kids table that I was envy of with games, activities and kid specific food. I think the kids throughly enjoyed the reception (and the dance floor). And speaking of dancing, Emily and Paul had a beautiful, fun choreographed first dance that was just awesome to watch. After some fun dancing, it was time for the newlyweds to depart through a sparkler run and start their life together as husband and wife.

Thank you Paul and Emily for inviting me to photograph your wedding day. It was my absolute privilege and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos!! I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!
