Kelly & Lachlan | Wedding | The Ipswich Club | 28th September 2013
On Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Kelly and Lachlan out at Ipswich. We all awoke incredibly early on Saturday morning, to mother nature putting on a show with a thunderstorm, but lucky for us, after a little drizzle in the morning, the day cleared and turned out to be a beautiful clear day with awesome golden sunshine (you know how much I love my golden sunshine!). The day started off at the boys place for some groom preparation photographs. I love photographing the boys. It is always nice to document the full day from start to finish as a reminder of how everyone felt on the day. Lachlan was a little nervous when we arrived… not so much about marrying Kelly, but he was really nervous about making his speech in front of all of the guests at the reception. (Don’t worry Lachlan, you nailed it!). After some great shots with the boys, it was back to Brisbane to photograph the girl getting ready. Kelly and her gorgeous bridesmaids were looking stunning with gorgeous hair and makeup. It didn’t take long before it was time for Kelly to get ready. She was a little emotional putting her dress on and thinking about the day. She looked amazing in her beautiful gown. Before long, the wedding cars had arrived and it was off to St Pauls in Ipswich for a beautiful ceremony. Kelly and Lachlan were married in Lachlan’s family church – a place where his grandparents were married and attended regularly until they passed away. It was very special that Kelly and Lachlan were able to be married there. We then had the opportunity to photograph a group photo with some amazing eco confetti (It bio-degrades with a little bit of rain – great idea!). I just love these photos… although it took a little while to dust everyone off! Then it was off to Ipswich Girls Grammar and surrounds for some beautiful location photos with the bridal party. I was so glad to have the gorgeous afternoon sunlight to work with, and the bridal party were great to photograph. Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the Ipswich Club for the reception for dinner, speeches and dancing. Mel and I stayed for the entire reception and of course encouraged everyone to participate in the photo booth.
It was such a wonderful day! Thank you to Kelly and Lachlan for inviting us to document your very special day. We had a wonderful time. A big thank you to Mel for coming out and second shooting with me. So without further ado, here is a short sneak peek. Enjoy your honeymoon and I look forward to catching up when your back!
And of course, a sneak peek from the crazy booth!!
