Cathedral of St Stephen Wedding | Helen & Micheal

Helen and Micheal’s wedding was a lot of fun to photograph. You could just tell  that everyone on the day was up for a good time.

The day started with Micheal at home with the boys ( and two cute dogs!). It was then off to Helen who was getting ready at the Marriott in the city.

The ceremony took place in the majestic Cathedral of St Stephen in the city. We then took a little tour around town with the bridal party for photos before finishing up at the Marriott for the reception.

The festivities kicked off at the reception with the whole bridal party dancing on entry and then everyone hitting the dance floor. They also had one the most amazing Candy Bars I have ever seen (/tasted  :)    ).

I also want to give a big shout out to Santo and the crew at Paper Cranes Productions. They were a blast to work with on the day and if you ever want one of the best wedding cinematographers in Australia to video your day, give them a call.

I loved Helen’s Shoes

I got lucky with a guest’s flash going off as I tripped the shutter

Some Reception Details

Now thats how you do a candy bar!

We also had some photobooth fun!

Newcastle Destination Wedding |Ashley + Nathan

I love shooting in new and different locations and recently I had this opportunity when I photographed the wedding of Ashley and Nathan down in Newcastle.

Both were originally from Newcastle but have since settled in Brisbane. So they thought it fitting to have their special day down in their home town amongst close family and friends.

Both Ashley and Nathan have strong family ties and it was lovely to capture this closeness throughout the day. It was also a pleasure to capture the close bond between this great couple. As you will probably notice in the photos below, we had a lot of fun throughout the day.

Ashley wore a gorgeous Darb dress

The look on Dads face seeing Ashley in her dress for the first time:

Nathan and the boys got ready at Ashley’s Grandfather’s home.

Which conveniently was right across the road from the church

Nathan’s dad sharing some last minute ‘advice’

Laura the Flowergirl/ring bearer did a great job

I loved shooting at the old buildings in downtown Newcastle

Did I mention that we had a spectacular day

Once the sun had set there was this beautiful soft glowy light down near the old swimming baths

Brisbane Wedding | Vicki + Quang

I have been really looking forward to photographing Vicki and Quang’s wedding. I love when I get the opportunity to photograph and experience weddings from different cultural backgrounds to my own.

The day started at the busy home of Quang as he and the boys prepared for the up coming Tea ceremony. The house was bursting with excited and happy family who gathered to then make their way to Vicki’s home for the start of the ceremony.

Following the fireworks and the gift giving, everyone gathered inside for the Tea ceremony.

After the tea ceremony it was then time for a quick change for Vicki into her gorgeous wedding gown and then off to start the western ceremony.

We then had some fun around town during the location shoot before heading to the always impressive Landmark restaurant in Sunnybank for the Reception/Party.

The food and entertainment flowed throughout the night with dancing performances and some rather interesting games :)


The boys thought that the photograph needed some added drama..

I love how busy this image is!


Bretts Wharf Wedding | Alissa + Chris

The day finally came around for the wedding of Alissa & Chris.

Amazing afternoon light shone through the stain glass windows of the Brisbane Grammer School great hall during their ceremony.

The bridal party then headed off to Newstead park for photos before continuing on to the reception held at Bretts Wharf restaurant at Hamilton.

Some details from the awesome reception:
