Kim & Ben | Wedding | HV & UQ Ipswich | 20th April 2013
Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Kimberley and Benjamin. After the week of crazy afternoon storms, I was super excited to wake up incredibly early on Saturday morning to find that the day was picture perfect. There was barely a sky in the cloud and the sky was just a constant cobalt blue all day.
We started the day with the boys. After a bit of improvisation, we captured some beautiful getting ready shots in the awesome morning sunshine. Ben wasn’t too nervous and did extremely well in front of the camera (he hates having his photo taken, as most boys do). We even had a coffee and a quick chat before we headed off to the girls. The girls were all nice and calm with hair and make up just be completed as we arrived. Kimberley had a very unique satin wedding gown with lovely purple embroidery. It matched her gorgeous bouquet and the bridesmaids perfectly.
Then it was off to the Hatton Vale cathedral for a beautiful ceremony, family photographs and a lunch time reception in the church hall. A highlight of the reception was a beautiful pair of swans carved out of ice. They were beautiful and the centre of the swans were coloured! After lunch, lovely speeches and cutting the cake, it was off to UQ Ipswich for some location photographs. I was incredibly excited to be photographing in some gorgeous afternoon golden sunlight. (It had been a while!) We had a spectacular sunset. And to finish off the day we made a quick pit stop to catch Kim’s Grandma at the nursing home. I think we made a few people’s days. It’s not every day you get to see a bride wandering around the halls of a nursing home.
Thank you Kim & Ben for inviting us to be part of your special day. We had a wonderful day capturing some beautiful wedding memories for you. Enjoy your honeymoon and we’ll see you when you get back!
