I adore my JFL couples and Tim & Rachel are no exception… they have the sweetest personalities and were so focused on making their Up On Constance Wedding Day personal & unique to what they wanted, it was destined to be a beautiful afternoon! Held at the rooftop bar Up On Constance in Fortitude Valley, both Tim & Rachel wanted a sunset ceremony overlooking the Brisbane cityscape, as a lot of Tim’s family & friends had travelled from New Zealand to celebrate with them – what better way to show them the beautiful city in which they lived, then to have their ceremony overlooking it at the prettiest time of the day!
Here’s a glimpse into their Up On Constance Wedding Day story:
Rachel fell in love with a gorgeous Zimmerman dress for her Wedding Day – the lace detail on this dress was just gorgeous and was just perfect for her… and hey, choosing a dress like this for your Wedding Day, means that you can wear it again & again! Imagine, wearing it out to every anniversary dinner for the next couple of years – I love that idea!
Meanwhile, Tim was all kinds of composed while waiting for his bride… and just look at that floral tie! I was a HUGE fan!
Rach was walked down the aisle by both her mum & her dad – I love it when parents both share this moment with their daughter. It’s just so special!
Celebrant Renee Wilkins led them in a short yet beautiful Ceremony – there was laughter, a few tears and at the end, a husband & wife were made!!
Introducing Mr & Mrs Halligan!!
After a quick group photo, we ducked downstairs to use the last of the light for some quick bridal portraits! I generally like to allocate an hour for these photos, but being that we had about ten minutes before it was completely dark, we hustled… and luckily, Tim & Rach were complete naturals! Which when you’re as loved up as these two, is pretty easy!
I love using some of the cool buildings in Fortitude Valley – even this entrance to a carpark makes for an interesting backdrop… even if I had to live a little dangerously, standing on the road in peak hour traffic to get the shots! Totally worth it!
Wanting to join their friends & family pretty quickly, we then headed back up to the rooftop bar for drinks, dancing and celebrations with the newlyweds!!
There were some heartfelt speeches – and with this fun & energetic crowd, there were a lot of laughter & jokes to be told as well!
As the night continued, it was soon time for the cake cutting (p.s how amazing is that chalkboard looking cake by A Little Cake Place) and a romantic first dance, before every single guest crowded onto the dancefloor to join in on the fun…
Mr & Mrs Halligan, thank you so much for inviting me to document the day you became husband & wife – I loved being a part of your special day and just know, that together – your future is SO exciting & bright! Here’s to future adventures as a married couple! Love, K xx
