Having met the couple previously we had a bit of an idea as to how the day was going to go. Turning up at Spicer's Retreat, 20 minutes away from the ceremony location. As there were three of us shooting all together between photo & video, we wanted to capture the best possible footage, so we opted for Steven to get ready outside. With the surreal sounds of Gardner fall breaking along the rocks just behind the cabin. Alongside Steven was his entourage of groomsmen and best friends all their that morning to provide a positive experience, right before the Groom was off to marry his bride to be.
After getting a few quick shots of the groom, we sprinted off to Janina's place, a cute cottage tucked away where her bridesmaids were helping her get ready.
One interesting thing about Janina's wedding dress & what it made is all the more special besides the fact that she was abut to marry the man of her dreams wearing it was the history behind it. This dress prior to Janina's big day has been worn by her family members which made it all the more special. In saying this, we can say for sure that she looked exquisite, Steven's jaw would be dropping to the floor the moment he see's his beautiful wife to be!
As we got to Wedding at Tiffanies in Maleny we were excited to be able to shoot a chapel ceremony. Tiffany’s Chapel offers you & your guests an unsurpassed, sweeping view to the magnificent Glasshouse Mountains & beyond to Brisbane & Moreton Island. Tiffany’s Chapel has been exquisitely & elegantly decorated in neutral tones with antique pews, chandeliers & polished hardwood timber flooring. Tiffany’s Chapel can seat 120 of your closest friends & family members in air conditioned comfort. We were right, As soon as Janina walked through those doors, we were sure to see Steven's heart stop, if only just for a moment. We love doing our job alone just to see these beautiful key moments in peoples lives.
Skipping ahead, we were lucky enough to have an awesome crew together for our photos sections, what was easier was the fact that the guests were close by so we were able to not only get some amazing intimate moments for Steven and Janina, including the bridal party, but we also. Between getting the car and chapel photo to the swing set challenge that made for some AMAZING footage, we were left with soo many wonderful options at the end.
The first thing you noticed when you walked through those reception doors overlooking the Maleny hinterland with exquisite views was the sweet smell of caramel that just infiltrated the whole reception area. We had a large number of guests trickling in, all people that influenced and shaped Steven & Janina's life in some way, so it was excellent that the catering service provided ample room for us to place the tripods in place before the speeches started. Looking back at the speeches, they were all so wonderful, one that mainly stood out along all of the others was Nina's little brothers speech, between the humour.
The night continued to move along, as the cake was cut and served, and their first dance as a married couple was conducted. Everyone came out onto the dance floor to show the camera a few of their moves, and it was a sure tale sign that Steven & Nina were having an Amazing night!
We can only hope our love for capturing your wedding both with photography, and videography has been shown through these images.
