Over the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Steven and Melinda. It was such a gorgeous day! I must admit with all of the rain that we had on Friday, I was a little worried that the weather was going to be a little damp, but luckily it held off and we only had a few showers during the reception. We started out the day with Steve and the boys at their home for some photographs. The boys were looking dashing in their Studio Italia suits. The boys were very relaxed and a joy to photograph. Then we were off to The Links at Hamilton to see the girls. Again, everyone was cool calm and collected and Mel was very relaxed and excited for the day ahead. Mel’s stunning Wendy Makin gown was something I had never seen before and she looked absolutely stunning in it!!! And the gorgeous flowers from Northside Flower Market complimented the colour scheme beautifully! After some gorgeous photographs in and around the hotel and Portside, we headed off to the Brisbane Racing Club for the ceremony.
Their beautiful ceremony was held under the gorgeous fig tree outside the Tote Room at the Brisbane Racing Club. Jamie from Brisbane City Celebrants conducted the short but sweet ceremony where Mel and Steve became husband and wife. Their two Mums witnessed their marriage officially, then with a kiss and some confetti they were husband and wife. After a gorgeous group shot and some family photos, we were off around the BRC for some bridal party portraits. I absolutely loved the diversity of locations we found in and around the grounds. And luckily for us, we had the most magical sunset to finish off the shoot.
Then we headed back to the Tote Room where the party started. A beautiful night of festivities ensued with dinner, speeches, cake, dancing and some sparklers Mel and Steve celebrated the night away! Oh and I have to mention the absolutely stunning wedding cake made by Cake My Day by Jo. It looked absolutely amazing and the little taste I had, it was just as divine!!!
Thank you both for such a magical day. It was such a privilege to witness how much love you both share, how loved you are by both your friends and family and how welcoming you made us feel. Both Mary and I felt like we were part of your family. We hope you enjoy your little sneaky peek!
And again a big thank you to Mary for being my second shooter again!
