Thanks to Stephen from Grapeshot for having me along to lend a hand on Sophie & Nathan’s wedding in Brisbane which I thought encapsulated wedding photography with sophistication & fun! That was down to the wedding party of course, who needed little coaxing & were really keen to enjoy the experience. I think it shows in their wedding photos gallery which I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I enjoyed taking the photographs! The day started out with a few bubbles complete with strawberries of course and just check out the colour of those bridesmaids’ gowns. Speaking of gowns, the beading on Sophie’s wedding gown was bridal bliss! The gown looks fabulous on Sophie & the girls were on hand for the final touches.
Speaking of colour, these tulips made for a stunning floral wedding display, each one so perfectly formed. Pretty soon the girls were all looking fantastic and ready for a few photographs on the striking staircase at the beautiful family home. The light in the room made for captivating photography of the girls.
Before we knew it the cars had arrived and it was time for Sophie to take a deep breath to calm all her excitement & step out into this majestic day that would be her and Nathan’s to treasure.Meantime, the guys were having their fun back at the hotel. Nathan was calm & collected, looking pretty cool for his photos & it was a scream taking those luggage trolley shots in the foyer!Magnificent St Stephen’s in Brisbane was the setting for their ceremony. Stepping inside the church, the significance of the moment was upon us all and we waited with anticipation, none more than Nathan, for the bride to arrive.It was a heartfelt ceremony filled with love & there were happy tears from family and guests alike. The mood on the front steps was joyful for their wedding group photographs & even ‘Teddy’ wasn’t missing out on having his photo taken.We made our way to Newfarm Park for some memorable artistic photography on that gorgeous afternoon. It was splendid!But could it get better than that? YES! Who knew that right on cue, Brisbane would come to the party with fantastic fireworks on the northern bank of the river! Wow! I just love fireworks. Of all the weddings in the world that day, Brisbane shone for Sophie & Nathan.
