When Brianne got in touch with me over email and explained that her & her fiance wanted a big, fun – and hopefully romantic – wedding at Riverlife in Brisbane, I was instantly in love. I’m also a romantic at heart and just adore taking photos that are filled with love, romance & a little bit of magic. Plus, having documented her cousins wedding 9 months earlier, Bri had seen me at work – albeit heavily pregnant at the time – yet hustling to get amazing images for her cousin. It means so much to me when my JFL couples recommend me to their friends & family, so finding that out made my heart so happy!

Fast forward to October this year and it was time for Brianne & Ashley to become husband & wife… it was a perfect spring day here in Brisbane!

Here’s a peek into their stunning wedding day:

The morning started off with Brianne and her two lovely sisters, Sian & Renae – getting ready at the lovely Oaks Felix in Brisbane.  While they were getting pampered by the amazing team from Blush & Bangs, I got to work photographing all of Bri’s beautiful wedding day details…

I was so in love with the lace on Bri’s gown – isn’t it just divine!

Ashley & Bri also have a little human, Remy that had just turned one a month before the wedding. He’s such a handsome little guy and gave me all the baby cuddles I wanted – which as I now miss Spencer on wedding days when I’m away for so long – I really appreciated! Thanks Remy!

After a lovely ceremony & the group photo, I took the bridal party and newlyweds for a short stroll around Kangaroo Point for their bridal portraits. I love this area of Brisbane as there are some really beautiful spots for photos and they are all really close together… making it so much more relaxing for my couples! Win, win!
