Mr & Mrs Mangano - 6th July 2019 - Home Hill Wedding QLD

Recently I traveled to Home Hill to capture a gorgeous couple who first met in year 2! The connection started when Andrew looked at Kaitlin’s feet and said “They are boys shoes”!

After school they were close friends for many years and in December 2014 they caught up again and Andrew yelled “Kaitlin’s the love of my life” on Christmas Eve at the local pub and that was where their real love began!!

The love these 2 have for each other was evident throughout the day and spending it with them and their super fun bridal party was an awesome day all round! The reception was held in their backyard in Home Hill and it was a stunning setup with a clear ceiling marquee, gorgeous flowers and decorations complete with an awesome custom made neon sign at their entrance. The dance floor got a little slippery with the cold night air and the lads took it upon themselves to make the most of this slipperiness and came running from the sides and started foot surfing across the floor which was hilarious!

Kaitlin & Andrews day was amazing and I had a ball being a part of it!! :)

Congrats Mr & Mrs Mangano!!

Mr & Mrs Armstrong - 29th June 2019 - Townsville Wedding

Last weekend Sharni-Lee and Blair said I do in Townsville and I was there to capture their special day!! Such a fun laid back couple who bounce off and compliment each other well and it was evident throughout the day these 2 are in love!! Had a ball with Blair and the boys in the morning with some cheeky jokes and some really bad dad jokes shared! Hey Fergo!! LOL!! Sharni-Lee’s gorgeous bride tribe were a pleasure to capture and help Sharni-Lee into her stunning gown ready to meet her husband to be! Sharni-Lee is a gorgeous young lady inside and out and was such a pleasure to capture. I loved how she couldn’t stop smiling even when I asked for a non smiling shot!

Gorgeous ceremony in St Joseph’s church followed by a fun and relaxed afternoon with the newlyweds and their fun bridal party on our photo locations!! The reception was held at The Ville which did not disappoint and I absolutely loved their bomboniere’s which were individual jars of honey from Blair and his parents Bee hives!! YUM!!!

What more can I say than, awesome day and awesome couple!!

Congrats Mr & Mrs Armstrong!!

Mr & Mrs Binder - 22nd June 2019 - Townsville Wedding

Last Saturday the awesome couple that are Cheryl & Tyler got hitched and I had the pleasure of being invited along to capture their awesome day! The weather was on point with clear skies and a coolness in the air!! Such a fun day with an awesome couple and their fun and cheeky bridal party!! What I love about Cheryl and Tyler is that they are so polite and nothing was an issue and the love they have for each other is very present especially when we setup a first look before their ceremony and Tyler turned to see his gorgeous bride to be with a smile that was not fading!! The ceremony was held at the Ryan Community Centre with Father Dave Lancini who is always a pleasure to work with and I just love the special gift he gives to all the couples he marries! We chose some great locations and one of the locations was being used by another photographer and their couple when we arrived so instead of using our intended location I improvised and didn’t waste any time in creating some great shots of the newlyweds in some amazing long grass nearby and the afternoon light was amazing!!!! Couple of shots to finish off on the side of Castle Hill for sunset (which was amazeballs) before heading to The Ville for their reception. Shout out to Julie and team at The Ville for yet another awesome wedding reception setup!! Michael from In The Booth Photobooth was very busy with all the guests jumping in for some fun!! At the end of the night we were lucky enough to have a clear view of the fireworks display that was part of an event that night! Free fireworks display on your wedding day… yes please!!! Such an awesome day with such an amazing couple!! Thank you Cheryl and Tyler for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!

Congrats Mr & Mrs Binder!!

Mr & Mrs Kruze - 15th June 2019 - Ayr Wedding

 

I captured the most fun couple say their forever’s to each other last Saturday in Ayr!! Such an amazing day and such an awesome couple!! I first met Ashleigh 8 years ago when I captured her sisters wedding and she was her bridesmaid! Fast forward to last weekend and it was her turn to marry the man of her dreams with her sister by her side! Now I usually only post about 80 – 100 images for each wedding blog post but Ashleigh & William’s day was such an amazeballs day I just had to share more!! It started with laughs and tom foolery with the men in the morning, more laughter with the bride tribe, gorgeous ceremony location coupled with amazing light filtering through the trees, great photo locations in Ayr, Home Hill then to end up at the lookout of Mt Inkerman Hill for sunset………well I think the images speak for themselves how gorgeous this couple are and how much fun their special day was!

Big shoutout to their awesome bridal party which made the day so much fun and gave me plenty of fun photo opportunities!! Congrats Ashleigh and William and it was hands down one of the most fun and best weddings I have had the pleasure to capture and it was an honour to be a part of your special day! 😊  Cheers to Mr & Mrs Kruze!!!

Mr & Mrs Dugmore - 1st June 2019 - The Farm - Townsville

Last weekend I captured the awesome Campbell and Cassie say I do at The Farm Plumeria Road at Black River!! This was my first wedding at The Farm so I ventured out a week out from the wedding with Cassie and the owner Sandra for a photo location tour of the area and we found some great spots! Fast forward to the big day and it was very overcast and it had rained the day before so we changed our locations on the fly and I found some great spots while shooting the groom and just looking around the grounds close by! Cassie looked stunning and I had a fun time capturing bridal prep with Cassie and her sisters who were her bridesmaids which was very special! Quick couple of shots with Campbell and the men before the heading to the ceremony with them rolling up on the back of the Buck’s Truck which I thought was an awesome way to enter your wedding!! The ceremony was gorgeous with close family and friends watching on under the gazebo and lush lawns!

After a quick mingle and a drink with their guests we headed out on the bus they hired with me at the wheel to a location I chose when driving in. Awesome afternoon with finding a couple of sweet spots on the fly and then heading back to the barn to start the reception! Such a relaxed vibe the whole day and into the night and there was no time frame to packup and very handy with the glamping options for their guest made it very easy to party on well into the night! The Happy Kitchen was serving up a selection of amazing food for dinner! I had the brisket burger and OMG it was AMAZEBALLS!!! There was a smores station setup conveniently next to the open fire pit which was most welcome on the cool night! We ended the night with the shot of the newly wed Mr & Mrs Dugmore with the chess pieces and as I took the shot it starting to lightly rain which was awesome and added another element to the image!

I can tell you I haven’t laughed so hard in a while then I did with this lot all day and on location photos!! Such a fun cheeky B&G and bridal party which made the afternoon very enjoyable!! Congrats Cassie & Campbell and thank you for choosing me to be a part of your special day! 😊

Mr & Mrs Sheriff - 23rd May 2019 - Magnetic Island

Short overseas trip to the gorgeous Magnetic Island last Thursday to capture the gorgeous and intimate union of Alexandra and Kirby!! This was such a intimate day with Alexandra & Kirby’s parents and their children as their wedding guests and it was amazing! Such love was present and Kirby’s vows almost had me tearing up!! Such a relaxed day and the setting for their ceremony on the beach of Horseshoe Bay was stunning!! The relaxed atmosphere of the ceremony was most evident with their cute son Finley who played with his truck in the sand and wandered amongst the guests throughout the ceremony! He loved the camera and is such a cute kid! Kirby’s daughter Amelia is such a well mannered young lady and was a joy to photograph and kept an eye on her little brother! After the ceremony we headed back to their rented holiday home the Villa Kembali (stunning!) for some cronuts, nibbles platter and to pop a bottle of bubbly. We then headed off on location in their hired mini moke to the Boulders for some shots and were surprised how close the rock wallabies came to us and that they love to eat wedding bouquets!! LOL! We finished up with sunset shots back on Horseshoe bay which was amazeballs!!!! I then boarded the ferry home while the newlweds joined their family at the Barefoot Art Food Wine for a celebration dinner!

I really loved capturing this intimate wedding with Alexandra, Kirby and their lovely family! Congrats Kirby and Alexandra and thank you for choosing me to capture your special day! :)
