Erin and Paul’s Beautiful Dayboro Wedding

This year has been an exciting one in terms of weddings!  But there has been one wedding I have been waiting for and that is this one.  I felt so priviledged to be invited to photograph this special couple’s wedding as I have known the bride since I was 10 and she was 5!  Her sister is one of my best friends and I have watched her grown into an amazing young woman and meet this fabulous man who were now getting married!


The wedding was taking place in a tiny little Catholic Church in Dayboro, St Francis Xavier Church, a beautiful country church in the Petrie Parish.


Quite possibly the most excited groom ever!

Then we were off to the always stunning Glengariff Estate for a stunning reception complete with oversized games on the lawn and the most beautiful armchairs to welcome this fabulously unique and happy couple.  Although we only had 45 minutes we raced around those grounds and captured some beautiful images – it was lucky the bride and bridesmaids were all wearing their running shoes.





But after the cake and the dancing there was still one more surprise from this awesome couple.  After the birde had thrown her bouquet, rather than the traditional garter tossing, instead the bride was treated to a mariachi style serenade by her husband and the groomsmen.


Congratulations to Erin and Paul!  Wishing you every happiness in your long future together!



Kelsie and Calvin’s Lovely Petrie Wedding


It was a beautiful day in the northern suburbs of Brisbane when I arrived at a lovely little house in Bray Park with a stunning white Cadillac out the front.  Inside the bride and her bridesmaids were all ready to go, with just a few finishing touches to add.


There was a lovely moment when the groomsmen showed up to drop off the bouquets and the blushing bride hid inside while also peering out to see her groom.

Calvin and Kelsie met at high school but it wasn’t until they met later on at a youth group that they started seeing each other – and so began a beautiful love story.

Tamara and Spencer’s Gorgeous Country Wedding {Dayboro – Mt Pleasant Wedding Photographer}

On the 13th of December, the day was slightly overcast but this made for an absolutely beautiful day to get married at Henzell’s Chapel at Dayboro, Queensland.  Tamara and Spencer are a beautiful couple and I hope they enjoy this little preview of their wedding photos.

Tamara and Spencer have actually known each other for 8 years through good friends but didn’t actually start dating until the 15th April 2011.  On the 28th of August 2012 Spencer picked Tamara up in a Ferrari and they drove to Mt Tamborine to enjoy the sights and a coffee before heading to the lookout where Spencer proposed.

From that point on the wedding preparations started revolved around this and their story. They choose a country theme to celebrate their day and their love of the country. Tamara has been a resident of the scenic Dayboro area for over 20 years so the choice of Henzell’s Chapel for the ceremony was an easy one. Spencer fell in love with Henzell’s chapel at as soon as he saw it.   The reception at Mt Pleasant Hall was beautifully and elegantly decorated by the family with a focus on hessian trim and natural materials and was the  perfect place to have a gorgeous country reception.
