Fairytale Wedding Video at Wedding's at Tiffany’s - Jesse & Holly 

Making our way out to Secrets on the Lakes where the boys were getting ready it was quite the cute little retreat. With wooden pathways above the ground it felt like a treehouse that never ended. Finding our way to the boys room there was nothing but smiles and joy. Starting them off with a few shots enjoying the beginning of this very special day they eased right into it. Having special groomsmen underwear this made for a uniquely humous section for our video. Before long it was time for the boys to get dressed, and get a few snaps together before it was time for us to head on over to the girls. 

Arriving at the ladies who were only just down the road at Lake Terrace, finalising the finishing touches they all looked gorgeous, but our beautiful bride Holly topped it off. She looked nothing less then STUNNING. In her gorgeous gown made by Richard De Chazal words could not describe the beauty of both combined. By far one of my favourite wedding gowns thus far. This talented man was responsible for hair, makeup and the dress design! & all three were flawless.

Whilst only doing video today we only had myself & Rob, our main videographer. Shortly after capturing all the precious moments of Holly & Jesse’s morning we started our short journey to the wedding venue - Weddings at Tiffany’s. Shooting Steve & Janina’s wedding at this venue not so long ago we loved our first experience there, our second was no less extravagant. We LOVE the chapel at Tiffany’s featuring a gorgeous view of Sunshine Coast Hinterland with wide open glass windows showcasing this beautiful scenery. Also offering accomodation this venue is definitely an all in one for an intimate wedding location surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery the glasshouse mountains has to offer.

Setting up the gear in preparation for Holly’s entrance you could see in Jesse’s face how nervous & excited all at the same time he was to be marrying the women of his dreams. As the time drew closer & closer everyone was patiently awaiting Holly’s arrival, and before long it was time. 

Walking through those front doors everything stood still, the essence of her beauty filled the room as tears of joy started to flow. Making her way to Jesse you could see the love these two shared for one another, I at this point was even welling up. 

Through these ceremonies as powerful as this one just looking at the reactions from both bride & groom is strong enough for me to get waves of emotion only imagining what it must feel like for the both of them. It makes me so happy to see such a beautiful love of two people becoming one, and I felt very privileged to have been apart of such a special day. 

Having the celebrant be a close friend of both Holly & Jesse his words were beautiful with a slight bit of humour here and there lightning the emotions it was the perfect ceremony. Im sure both Jesse & Holly couldn't have imagined anything more special for they're becoming of one. 

Walking back down the aisle as husband & wife confetti was thrown as everyone followed them outside for their well wishes. Shortly after everyone had said their congratulations it was time to head down the road to a beautiful little private property and begin the photos section. 

Working in well with the two other photographers we worked together to make sure we both were able to get amazing shots for both Jesse & Holly. & we both nailed it. With that fairytale feel to it we were excited to get home and begin the editing process the footage was that exciting for us. Gorgeous afternoon sunlight accompanied by a gorgeous big tree it was the perfect afternoon. 

Heading back to Tiffany’s the night kicked off with a bang, having G&M Dj’s as the MC & DJ they did an excellent job at capturing everyones attention with a good laugh. Moving on through the night the speeches were heartfelt & beautiful, hearing kind words from Holly & Jesse’s nearest & dearest. 

Shortly after dinner followed the first dance, it was quite an emotional time for the both of them as holly laid her head on Jesse’s shoulder close to tears. This was a beautiful moment for everyone who bared witness to the memories both Jesse & Holly will treasure forever. 

Throughout the rest of the night there was some great moves on the dance floor, and nothing but smiles and happiness as everyone partied on into the night.

We thank Jesse & Holly for having us be apart of their special day, from the team here at J’adore we wish you both nothing but the best for your future filled with happiness, endless love & the best of memories shared between the two of you. 

Congratulations!

 

Until next time,

Spices Peak Lodge Wedding Photography & Videography - Kerri & Tom

Beginning our two hour adventure to the wondrous location of Spices Peak Lodge we were pretty excited to be shooting in such a remotely gorgeous location. Arriving at around mid day we were anxious to get the ball rolling.  Perched upon the canopies, Spicer’s Peak Lodge in Maryville is one of Australia most awarded and luxurious venues, specialising in exclusive Destination Weddings, this scene is set 1,100 metres above sea level and on a perfect day, the sunset is tantalisingly perfect.  Perched at the peak of the 8,000 acre property and surrounded by picturesque mountain views, this place is perfect for both you wedding and honeymoon.

Finding Tom wondering around chatting with family & friends as he nervously awaited his big moment we caught him for a quick chat getting all the details for the girls and rooms they would be in for the preparation. Dean, Karen & Rob heading over to the girls which was in the Day Spa they got straight into it. Having her gorgeous gown made by Bertossi Wedding Dress's Paddington & hair & makeup made by Jessica-Rose Wedding Hair & Makeup she looked nothing short of spectacular.

Nat & myself started by setting up for the ceremony, which might I just add was more then beautiful, more then amazing & better then breath taking. With a stunning arbor trapped in which chiffon sheets accompanied by floral decorations either side In front of a tremendous view it was a wedding set up a girl could only dream of. Kerri & Tom had done very well to chose such a gorgeous location.

Shortly after setting up the ceremony we made our way over to the boys getting ready. Walking in to happy faces & lots of banter we wasted no time in getting started. Setting up all of the details knocking that out of the way we began to shoot the boys in their preparation, having a good mate on face time they were all having a good laugh & bonding over such a special day. We got to know the boys briefly, discussing the bucks party, and how a certain member went missing in the middle of the night. As everyone started to settle into the day a bit more, we got to getting the finer detailed shots that included the cuff links, shirt, jacket, shoes and tie. We then got straight into the getting ready part where you could definitely see Toms nerves were starting to settle in. Before we knew it, it was time for them to get down to the ceremony.

Making sure the camera’s were all good to go the time flew by and down walked the groomsmen with the bridesmaids, one of which had a bridesmaid on either side. Lucky guy! Kerri walking down the aisle you could see the emotions running wild, as time stood still for Tom as he watching his beautiful wife to be walk down the aisle I couldn't help but shed a tear at this precious moment In time.

Capturing these special moments for me is what it's all about, seeing the love two people have for one another is irreplaceable. I love what I do & I am so very lucky to do what I love.

The ceremony itself was everything they could have expected & more, with the sun just shining through the clouds as they exchanged their vows & promises to one another there was nothing but smiles & tears of joy. Throughout there were plenty of beautiful moments to capture, what made it more personal was the vows that they shared to each other, and the rings that they gave to their parents to hold until the time came to put the rings on each other fingers and seal the deal. 

Following the ceremony was the photos section & my goodness was it amazingly gorgeous out there! We are so excited to be sharing these images with you all alongside the wedding video which is bound to make hearts leap with joy. We ventured to many places throughout the photo section, while still staying in the HUGE acreage around Spicer’s Peak Lodge. While starting right out the back of the building where the mountain tops are easily to be seen surrounded by lush terrain, we wanted to go exploring up the hill. The Swing set provided different shots where we got to mess around with the positions of the couple. One of my favourite locations though was up at the Northern Lookout. We got their just as the sun was just starting to set; and with limited time and the temperature rapidly declining we all knew we needed to make the most of our time here. This area provided some AMAZING silhouette shots as well as some pretty great videography footage.  After the photos section was over it was time to get right into the reception, which might I add was beautifully crafted by Angie' s Angels.

Starting with a delicious first course provided by the talented chefs at Spices Peak Lodge everyone was enjoying the warmth & happy vibes. Before long it was time for the speeches, this is one of my favourite parts of the day. All of the funny stories, memories & times shared with loved ones being shared with the family bringing back those wonderful times like they were just yesterday. & for these two there were plenty of humours memories shared that night. Much laughter & many tears of joy as they continued on right through to the first dance. Taking place just by the fire it was gorgeous, slowly & gracefully they made their way around the room soaking up each moment as it came by. Wasn't long before everyone was on the dance floor with their partners enjoying the beautiful melody's playing in the back round supplied by none other than Joe Goodman . 

Such a beautiful way to end an amazing day! We are very thankful to Kerri & Tom have us be apart of their special day and capture those precious moments for them. We are super excited to be sharing the Images & video from this awesome day. 

From the team here at J'adore, we wish you nothing but pure happiness, love & joy throughout the rest of your lives together. 

Congratulations!!!

Moving on into the night I was stationed at the massive greenery wall for everyone to get their photos taken whilst Rob was making his way around the room with the video camera, mingling on the way we both had a great night. 

Before long Cindy went up and stage and presented us with a lovely little presentation demonstrating just how far they have come, displaying their journey along the way. 

Following this we had a brilliant fire twirler accompanied by some Fijian style dancers from Heilani Polynesian School of Arts, having a few of the guests get involved they had a blast.  Not long after this it was time to light the candles on the cake, whom were supplied by AV Partners, which by the way did a GREATjob!!. After the second one was lit there was an AMAZING sparkler show coming from the three huge stands behind the desert table which I am certain everyone was impressed by, I know we sure were.

Whilst also creating a good opportunity to meet new vendors or catch up with a few we had already worked alongside.

Listed below you will see vendors covering all area, from celebrants to cake designers, event stylists, dress designers and much much more it was a great day!! all below you will find additional images & short video of the day

With yummy canapés going around, champagne & happy vendors the excitement for all who are about to get married was beautiful to see. Chatting with couples & families as they would walk past, asking them about how they meet & hearing all the stories always puts a smile on my face. Discussing the exciting aspects of the wedding I was excited for them! 

Wishes Events putting on quite the gorgeous set up of floral hoops by the stage runway was just beautiful, not to mention the upstairs room they had decorated with two different styles. Both absolutely amazing! 

With vendors such as Holly Rose Couture here we were lucky enough to get a little fashion show from her latest & greatest. Which were just stunning, I know who I'll be going to for my wedding gown!! The girls on stage did an amazing job!! There wasn't a vendor or guest there that didn't have all eyes on stage. 

Shortly after this we were back by the stall conversing with newly engaged couple having a great time just chatting away, Rob loves a good conversation so he was in his element & loving it!

Before long it was time for us all to pack up shop & head home for the day, for us we couldn't wait to get home, upload the footage and get right into it! We look forward to sharing this with you & we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.
