Last month we were privileged to shoot long time friend Rani and her British mail order husband 😉 on their special day. While the location on the Noosa river was a lovely choice, little of it could be used with the “good luck” rain being unrelenting for most of the day and night (and the whole week leading up to the day!). We literally had just enough time to grab a couple group shots before it was a mad scurry back inside to the function room but that had no effect on the beaming smiles and laughter shared by all… and the food, oh boy the food. There are positives and negatives when you have a couple foodies tying the knot!

A couple that cuts the cheese together will be pleased together… or something. Congrats to the couple on the start of their new life (officially) together (:
(and thanks to Rani for sparing me our traditional crash tackle greeting! Haha -T)

Two of our good friends, essentially “The cat” and “The bat” on the day, were married long before James popped the question. This day was more of a formality to make it official as they are pretty much two peas in a pod with excellent taste in cars and footwear 😉

Congrats to the couple and all the best for their honeymoon trip to Japan later in the year!

Venue: Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens

Here are a bunch of our faves from the day…

We don’t normally shoot weddings but when we do, the celebrant does stand up material and the ceremony has more swearing than Reservoir Dogs!
Ok contrary to what you may think, it wasn’t “What really happens in Bali – Wedding edition” but a light hearted and intimate affair full of smiles and laughter and if you ask us, its how a wedding should be.
The light faded fast but the couple still managed to shine it on with Kat and her gown trying (not) to steal the show 😉
edit – I don’t know when dresses become gowns but hot diggity, that has got to be the living definition of one!

It was a wonderful day and we wish them all the best in their new bonded life together (:

Reel Big Fish said it best when they sang “It’s so nice, I want to hear the same song twice” which is exactly what Papada and Aaron did when they had two weddings, a big traditional one overseas and a small casual affair at home for their local friends. None the less beautiful and tears were still shed even if it was the second time round. Photos were requested to be kept simple to go along with the day (and they already had a bunch from the -other- one!). Here are a few of our faves and we wish the best of prosperity to the happy couple (:

Held at the lush little restaurant, Ebb on the Sunshine Coast, it was a perfect little wedding with the bride arriving by punt and the weather turning it on for pretty much the only clear day in nearly 2 weeks!

Congratulations guys, we wish you all the best for the future.

Some more highlights and shenanigans from the ceremony and reception of Tiffany and Brendan’s wedding

More highlight photos here

Tiffany and Brendan tied the knot at the exclusive Deux Belettes country guesthouse in the northern NSW hinterland last month.

A beautiful ceremony and fun reception filled with rose petals, black and white lace style decor, cupcakes, balls of roses with Phalaenopsis orchids and one hell of a ribbon mobile centerpiece.

Congratulations to the happy couple who have just returned from their honeymoon to New Zealand. We wish you the best of happiness and the brightest of futures together!
