Over the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Ramon and Sheydin up at Maleny. We started out the day at Remingtons Homestead at Maleny where both the boys and girls were getting ready. The boys were in the cottage and the girls were in the main homestead. It was such a beautiful property! The boys were all ready and were keeping Ramon nice and relaxed. We stared off photographing Ramon opening a letter and gift from his soon to be wife. It was very emotional. Then with some help from Dad, Ramon got dressed and we headed out in and around the property for some groomsmen photos.
Then it was off to the homestead where the girls were getting ready. Hair and makeup was just finishing up and the girls were ready to get in their dresses. We started off photographing all of the beautiful details including Sheydin’s custom made shoes and of course photographing her opening a beautiful letter from Ramon. The love between these two was clearly evident by their reactions when reading each others reactions. The girls were so much fun to photograph and looked absolutely stunning in their gorgeous purple gowns. Their beautiful flowers created by Tiffanys were absolutely divine.
Then it was off to Weddings at Tiffany’s for the ceremony and the reception. The ceremony was such a beautiful ceremony filled with laughter, wisdom, beautiful vows and fortune cookies. There were many giggles and laughter throughout the ceremony and a very special song played by the Groom’s Dad and friends band while they signed the register. After the ceremony we were a little rushed for a group and family photos as the weather was looking like it was about to rain cats and dogs at any moment. Luckily it held off during family photos and bridal party portraits before pouring just as we finished.
We started the bridal party portraits around Tiffany’s before we headed down the road to a street filled with beautiful Jacarandas for some portraits, then off to the Agapantha Farm, a quick stop on the side of the road with a bush full of the most gorgeous purple flowers then off to One Tree Hill. We worked really quickly and packed a lot of photographs in to a short amount of time as we were super worried about the weather. Luckily the bridal party was awesome and the weather held off but gave us enough to create some absolutely stunning portraits.
Then it was back to Tiffanys for the beautiful reception. After a buffet dinner (amazing of course!) there were so many beautiful heartfelt speeches, slideshows, more music from the band, the cake cutting and of course the first dance. There were so many laughs and good times had by all.
A big thank you to both Ramon and Sheydin for inviting us to be part of your wedding day. It truly was a beautiful day. And of course a big thank you to Mel for second shooting with me again! You’ve been awesome!
