“A DREAM IS A WISH YOUR HEART MAKES” – CINDERELLA
Oh. Em. Gee. Sometimes I have to pinch myself that this is work for me. Getting to play & create with other talented vendors to bring a vision to life is so much fun and something I wish I could be doing every day (especially the days that are filled with admin & emails – I promise there are bits to owning a business that aren’t quite as fun as this!)
When Mandi from Ivy & Bleu Events contacted me to photograph an inspiration shoot she’d be dreaming of at Victoria Park, a stunning Brisbane wedding venue, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. Mandi is not only super talented, she is SO lovely – seriously, there is a reason I recommend her at every chance I get! The concept of this shoot was based all around the magic of the well known Cinderella fairytale (which is so romantic!) and translating that into a classic wedding style that brides could adapt for their own wedding…
Here is a glimpse into our version of this fairytale:
Victoria Park Weddings has so many options for couples to hold their ceremony, anyone getting married there really is spoilt for choice! As one of their preferred suppliers, I have photographed quite a few weddings there, Craig & Rach’s is still one of my faves.
This time, I was in love with the flowering Bougainvillea so Mandi created a space up near the bistro to hold the ceremony…
One of my fave celebrants Sarah May Alexander joined us as well (I love her so much I recommended her to my sister who chose her for her own wedding… she made her ceremony perfect, I have so much love for this talented lady!)
We then took the newlyweds through the grounds for some bridal portraits – starting with the cactus garden for something a little bit different…
… then ending up on the course for sunset!
There are so many gorgeous trees on the course at Victoria Park – this one making the photo that much prettier! Honestly, it’s just perfect – even when it’s not in flower!
The gown from Jennifer Gifford Designs had an stunning overlay that could get swept up in the breeze, much like a veil does for a bride. I love movement in images and think these have to be my fav!
As we wrapped up the portraits on the course, the finishing touches were being put on the stunning reception setup by Mandi at Ivy & Bleu Events… such a pretty setting!
The gorgeous signage was created by Love Notes, adding even more elegance & romance.
p.s I wish my handwriting could look like this!
The perfect way to end a perfect day!
I’d love to hear what you think – leave me a comment below (it honestly will make my day!)
