Ash & Sarah | Wedding | Royal Pines Gold Coast | 22nd November 2014
On Saturday I had the pleasure of heading down to the beautiful Gold Coast to Royal Pines Resort to photograph the beautiful wedding of Ash & Sarah. It was a beautiful day, although a little hot! Thankfully we were in air con for most of the day which made the heat a little more bare able. We started off the day photographing Ash and his best man and brother Brendan in one of the hotel rooms at Royal Pines. Ash looked incredibly dapper in his black 3 piece suit and was very calm. The boys were great during prep and Ash’s Mum who was there during the photographs couldn’t of been more proud. Then it was off to see the girls in the spa suite to photograph their preparations. Sarah looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous Strictly Bridal gown. I loved all the little details Sarah included on the day – a photograph of her Nana on her gorgeous Peonies bouquet (created by B Sweet Flowers), the little Mickey and Minnie “I Do” stickers on the bottom of her shoes and the gorgeous robes the girls got ready in. There was a little bit of a disney/princess theme throughout the day, and Sarah certainly looked like a princess.
After we finished photographing the girls, it was off to the Chapel at Royal Pines for a lovely ceremony officiated by Karen Maree Randall. The ceremony was filled with lots of love and special touches and the music incorporated Disney themes. It was a beautiful ceremony with heartfelt vows, readings from 3 friends and family members, the exchanging of rings and sealed with a kiss Ash and Sarah were married. A little surprise at the end of the ceremony was that both Sarah and Ash’s Mum’s were asked to sign the register. By the look of surprise on their faces I don’t think they knew they were going to witness the marriage. A beautiful touch to the ceremony. Then it was off for a group photo and some family photographs, before we grabbed some golf buggies and headed off for some beautiful bridal party portraits around Royal Pines. As the sun set, it was time for us to head inside to capture the beautiful reception details where the party continued.
Thank you Ash and Sarah for inviting us to photograph your wedding day. It certainly was a beautiful day to be part of and a privilege to be able to capture some beautiful memories for you. Enjoy your little sneak peek and I can’t wait to show you the rest!
