Stormy Beach Wedding – The Spit, Main Beach

Jess and Trent came up to the Gold Coast to get married, have a holiday with their family and mates, and just generally chill. Well, that’s exactly what happened. In true Qld fashion, it belted down, but boy was it a spectacular location shoot! Mansions, balcony ceremony, drinks and sandy barefoot walks on the beach during kick-ass storms. We did it all, and it was awesome. Here is the short and sweet stormy beach wedding of Jess and Trent.

Clint & Karla’s Colourful Waterside Wedding

As with a lot of my lovely clients, Karla and Clint just wanted a laid back wedding with their family and friends that incorporated the stuff that makes them happy. For Karla, that was their family and their brand new home, and for Clint, it was the waterside. So they combined the two and voila, a fun, joy-filled, sunlit, water-surrounded day ensued!

We began the day at St Margaret’s chapel outside the Arts Centre in Bundall on the Gold Coast. It’s the cutest little chapel, and I love the old school feel of it – no literally, it feels like an old turn-of-the-century school. The guests all piled in and we had a beautiful intimate service that suited Karla and Clint perfectly.

After the ceremony, drinks were served in the gardens where the gorgeous cake was cut and speeches were made. It was a nice change to an evening reception and I loved being able to shoot in the afternoon light, so much nicer!!!

Location photos took place at Bum’s Bay on the Spit in Main Beach, perfect for our photos with its mix of greenery and water views (which our couple loved). Honestly nothing beats a beautiful sunny afternoon for golden hour photos. Just magnificent!

Roll on to the waterside reception. Actually, make that boat on to the waterside reception. We took a ride in Clint’s banana boat as the sun set (just magic) along the Gold Coast waterways and arrived at their home-made reception via the canal. I love a bit of something different so I was keen as!

These guys were lovely. Such fun and just nice people. My people. Awesome.

Alisha & Garry’s Super Fun Hinterland Wedding

Alisha and Garry are awesome people. They had a gorgeous and hilariously funny hinterland wedding at St Bernards Mt Tamborine. Here is their story.

I had the pleasure of meeting Garry in Grade 9 of high school when he moved to the Gold Coast. We were partners in shenanigans from the outset, united in our quest to get through year 9 social studies in any way we could. Others joined in. We had an awesome time. The teacher left the school shortly after (I feel a little bad about that, but she was super ill-equipped to deal with a bunch of bored 14 year olds).

Bearing all this in mind, I was stoked to be asked to shoot Garry’s wedding to Alisha, his lovely and equally funny fiance. These two are gold. They have two munchkins, love the outdoors and love a good sense of humour. So we were solid.

The location was set, the Gold Coast hinterland was calling, and I couldn’t wait to be involved in this shindig. Many laughs were had, many moments were captured and the hinterland turned it on like never before with a sunset to rival Hollywood blockbusters.

Here is the super fun hinterland wedding of Garry and Alisha. Congrats guys x

Boho Chic Wedding for Earth Day

The stunning Boho Chic Wedding of Sam and Michael took place in April, fittingly on Earth day. Coolibah Downs in Nerang was chosen as the venue, as the couple loved the garden setting and were more than happy that their guests could share in their day and not have to travel to the reception. Win!

Sam loves to DIY, so almost all the decorations were lovingly made by her (or family members) over the few months prior to the big day. Even the succulents given as gifts to the guests were grown by her uncle and friends of the Maid of Honour, with Sam and Michael growing more from cuttings (which is a great personal touch) , all used to style the ceremony and reception areas. The fresh greens and natural timber tones used were understated yet elegant, just like the couple.

Michael is a super keen fisherman, so this was incorporated into the day via his excellent choice of socks and some very unique cufflinks, which apparently took months to track down. I love when a couple puts personal touches like this into their wedding. It makes it more memorable, and certainly more fun for me! Bring out the crazy cufflinks I say!

So a beautiful ceremony was performed, some gorgeous photos were taken (while some serious fun was had and one particular kookaburra was kept at bay – no kookaburras were harmed during the making of these photos), and a wonderful reception followed. What more could you ask for? Oh, there was cake too. CAKE!

Here is the wedding of Samantha and Michael.
