Megan and Steve’s Romantic Brisbane River Wedding

So I have been a bit busy of late, what with trying to renovate a house and clean it up for sale whilst working full time, chasing after 3 kids and playing taxi driver. It’s been hectic and I’m sorry, but hey it’s better late than never right?

I shot this fantastic, romantic and utterly brilliant Brisbane River wedding in November (where the hell did that 7 months just go!). Megan and Steve are lovely, laid back people who just wanted to get married down by the river and hang with their friends and family. So, they did just that. I was so chuffed to be able to capture this special day for them, and my god the locations down at Riverlife Kangaroo Point are awesome! Brisbane city skyline against dramatic rock faces, lush trees and the beautiful Brisbane River. What’s not to love!?

Megan wore the most amazing Theia dress covered in sequins, just stunning with a touch of vintage. #perfect I loved the little organic touches throughout the day too, with native flowers, kraft invites, and timber additions to the old boathouse reception setting. This wedding was my kind of shindig. The sort of celebration that makes me want to do my own wedding all over again so I can get dressed up and not have a satin dress or roses (yep, that’s what was trending 10 years ago), and for god’s sake not shoot on the beach with a cranky and rather underwhelming photographer! Anywho, here is the Brisbane River Wedding of Megan and Steve….

Alex and Chris get hitched at Braeside Chapel

Alex and Chris are two of the most laid back people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We met, we talked about their wedding, and that was that. We waited for August to roll around so I could capture their day.

Alex and Chris chose the well-manicured lawn at Braeside Chapel in Merrimac on the Gold Coast (a personal favourite of mine, shout out to John and Judy who are excellent hosts) for their garden wedding at the end of winter, and what a great choice it was!

Details began to come together, and we were excited. I was especially stoked with their transport, a giant red double decker bus from Magic Bus Hire in Byron Bay  . Both bride and groom travelled to Braeside with their bridal party, the boys taking the bottom level (with Chris blindfolded all the way) and the girls on the upper deck.

This day was about fun, love and family and friends. So naturally, I had a blast. Lawn games, beer wagons, converse, and the official #cutestparentsever was a recipe for an amazing day.

I should add here that poor Chris had the worst bout of pneumonia resulting in a stay in hospital the week prior to the wedding, so he was feeling super craptacular, but it didn’t stop him from marrying his bride, and despite the fact we almost had to carry him a couple of times he made it through the day like a champ. I have to point out here also, the messages they sent each other with the lightbox were completely unscripted. No coaxing or hints from me. I was more than a little amazed. These guys were obviously meant for each other.

Here is the wedding of Alex (or if you are their ring-in celebrant, Alexander lol) and Chris…
