On Friday I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding day of Samuel and Veronica. It was such a beautiful day to be part of and if I could sum up the wedding in a few words it would be – fun, love, family and friends. It was so beautiful to witness the love between Sam and Von and also how loved they are by their family and friends.
Jess and I had a little bit of an early start heading up to beautiful Noosa to capture the boys getting ready. They all looked great in their navy suits from Stewart’s Suits. The boys were all very relaxed and it was super easy and fun capturing some prep photos. It was awesome to be able to capture Sam’s reaction when he opened his gift from Von – 3 custom designed records filled with songs they both love!
After some prep photos with the boys, it was off to Montville to see the girls! The girls were just having their hair and makeup finished off in the Lawdy Miss Clawdy hair and makeup van. It was such a cool idea!! I loved how the girls could come in and out of the van for their hair and makeup throughout the morning. Plus it made for some fun photos! Before long it was time to get dressed. Von looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous lace gown from White Lilly Couture and the beautiful flowers were from Hudson Floral Couture! They looked so good with all the dresses. Before long, the beautiful classic cars from Kenz Classic Car Hire had arrived and it was time to head to the chapel.
The beautiful Catholic ceremony was held at The Chapel, Montivlle which is an absolutely stunning chapel. Made from sandstone with the most beautiful stain glass and beautiful views over the valley. Father Bob conducted a beautiful ceremony where Von and Sam were wed and it was lovely to see family and friends included in the readings and both Mums signing the register. After the ceremony we captured a beautiful group photo and some gorgeous family portraits outside of the chapel before it was time to head down towards Yandina for lunch.
Along the way we stopped with the bridal party to capture some gorgeous photos of the coastline from Montville. The beautiful lunch reception was held at The Rocks Yandina outdoors under the beautiful trees. It was a beautiful banquet lunch which felt a little like a garden party. Von and Sam really wanted the reception to be relaxed and fun so they included a few little games and a text hotline where guests could text in funny messages to be read out to the crowd. Throughout the reception we also had the most amazing sunset over the nearby paddock. I was so excited for that yummy golden light. And right on sunset, the cows even came over for a sticky beak. Before we new it, the sun had set and it was time to celebrate the first dance. Then it was time to head back to Noosa where the after party continued well into the night…
A massive thank you to Von and Sam for asking me to photograph your wedding day. It was such a special day to be part of and I felt incredibly privileged to be part of your day. A big thanks to Jess for getting up bright and early and the endless car karaoke on the way home. Enjoy your sneaky peek and I can’t wait to show you the rest!
