Over the years I’ve come to think that my work and style is best showcased at vineyards, farms and venues with big open spaces… I just love big compositions and landscapes for portraits! Braeside Chapel Weddings are a perfect example of that, with Braeside having some of the most gorgeous grounds that I’ve ever seen on a private property. Dan & Caitlin, highschool sweethearts were married there last Friday and needless to say, we were super excited to be documenting their day through both photo & video. Not only because we were excited to shoot somewhere new for us, but also because of how sweet these two are. I know I say that about a lot of my JFL couples, but how I got so lucky still astounds me!
Dan & Caitlin, I know you’re enjoying your honeymoon over in Bali – but I wanted to take a minute to say thank you. Documenting your first day as husband & wife was incredible – I hope you love these photos as much as I loved taking them and we simply cannot wait to show you more!! All my love, K xx
Here is a glimpse into their Wedding Day story:
GOLD COAST WEDDING PREP VENUE: PEPPERS BROADBEACH
Caitlin’s morning started with her lovely mum and 4 gorgeous bridesmaids – Maddie, Jocelyn, Wendy & Mel. There were plenty of giggles, glasses of bubbles and good memories being made, while the girls all got ready for Caitlin’s big day! Like always, I started documenting her beautiful wedding day details…
After some champagne photos with the girls in their robes, it was time for Caitlin to get dressed into her stunning Grace Loves Lace Wedding Dress…
GOLD COAST WEDDING CEREMONY VENUE: BRAESIDE CHAPEL, MERRIMAC
Meanwhile, the finishing touches were being put on Braeside Chapel in preparation for Dan & Caitlin’s Wedding Ceremony…
The moment everyone had been waiting for – especially Dan!
Introducing Mr & Mrs Blair!
After their Ceremony officiated by James Mclauchlan (a celebrant – and all round lovely guy – I’d highly recommend!) it was time for their bridal portraits! With storms forecasted, we decided to take their portraits using the grounds at Braeside Chapel and my goodness, am I glad we did! They have so many great spots for photos, we were honestly spoilt for choice!
These quiet moments are what it’s all about – after the Ceremony, taking time with your new husband or wife to reflect on the day so far and take some pretty bridal portraits with just the two of you!
We also took photos with Caitlin and her girls…
… and with Dan & his guys – Luke, Nick, James & Sean!
GOLD COAST WEDDING RECEPTION VENUE: BRAESIDE CHAPEL, MERRIMAC
As the storm clouds rolled in, it was time for Dan & Caitlin to join their guests for their Wedding Reception! Braeside Chapel have a gorgeous silk lined marquee, perfect for celebrating (and staying dry!) long into the night! After Mr & Mrs Blair made their entrance, it was time for cake cutting, heartfelt speeches and lots & lots of dancing…
Congratulations again you guys! Here’s to your adventures together as a married couple!
