I love coming across cultures I have never really experienced before… this happened a few weeks ago when I had the delight to document a Greek Orthodox wedding here in Brisbane! While there are many aspects that are different to the weddings that I have photographed in the past, I love that it always comes back to one, very important thing. Family united by the love of a very special couple… On this beautiful Brisbane day, Joe & Elleni became husband and wife, surrounded by their closest friends and family! It was a day that I will never forget… followed by a night of the most crazy dancing I’ll also never forget!! These guys sure know how to party!
Here’s a peek into their Wedding Day story:
While the groom calmed his nerves with a glass of whisky (or two), the bride & her bridesmaids were having their own morning fun at her family home…
I love the morning of a Wedding Day – there are just so many beautiful moments, shared between the bride & the people she loves most in the world. It’s such a beautiful way to start the day!
Their Ceremony was held at their local Greek Orthodox Church, here in Brisbane. Such a stunning church which made for an equally amazing Wedding Ceremony…
The Bride, Elleni wore the most beautiful smile, complete with her smiling father in the background!
Husband & Wife…
After the Ceremony, we ventured into the City Botanical Gardens for some bridal portraits with the newlyweds & their bridal party! It was such a beautiful winters day, there was honestly no place I’d rather be!
As the last light faded, we made our way back to the Brisbane Convention Centre for their Wedding Reception… that had been styled just beautifully.
… and the room was made complete with city views! Check out the Eye of Brisbane from here!
After Joe & Elleni’s first dance as Husband & Wife, everyone took to the dance floor! These guys sure knew how to party… and dance!
I stole them for one last photo before I left, with the city view as a backdrop. Introducing Mr & Mrs Curtis! Joe & Elleni, thank you so much for trusting Nick & I to photograph this very special time in your lives and we just cannot wait to see what the future holds for you both! I just know how amazing it is going to be!
