 Mt Tamborine Pethers Rainforest Retreat Wedding Videography - Trent & Donay

Arriving at a beautiful property located in Mt Tamborine in which the boys were in preparation for Trent's big day. Typical boys rushing around finding this & that, mucking around as they progressed through the morning it was great to see them all having a good time together. With such a big bridal party it's hard not to have a great time!

Tamborine Gardens Wedding Photography & Video Mount Tamborine, Drew & Samantha

This be my first friends wedding I had shot, I was super excited!! Having known the couple & there two beautiful girls made this wedding one of my favourite of all time.

With one person on photo and the other on video going to each the bride an the groom, we were more than ready to stat our day.

When I turned up at the boys apartment at the Q1 resort, the beats were pumping, & I was excited to get right into action, with Sunny as my photographer we got right into the action. The apartment was massive, so this gave us a lot of room to work with, & we could try different places to showcase the wedding accessories & the dashing groomsmen. After Drew gave his groomsmen an thank you present we made our way up to the observatory deck of the q1, which made for some amazing photos & videos looking out over the one & only Gold Coast.

At the girls place 2 beautiful little flower girls named Summer & Pippa were dancing around there beautiful mum as she adored her stunning dress. Mum helping with the lace up back as her lovely brides maid puffed and fawned over the blushing bride.   

It was finally time to leave for the ceremony that was held at Tamborine Gardens, but not before the guys got there in their awesome convertible classic car hydraulics and all!

As I set up the camera's for the ceremony I couldn't help but notice but notice Drew's nervous emotions pacing back and forth, constantly fidgeting I go up and tell a few little tips I have found over the years to help calm the nerves so he can concentrate on his beautiful bride minutes away from walking down the isle. Sadly the tips couldn't stop the most natural reaction to seeing the love of your life walking down the isle in her wedding dress & that was tears and lots of them even though he tried to hold them back the video doesn't lie. ( Sorry Drew )

With such a beautiful venue we didn't need to travel off site Tambourine Gardens has it all & with some of our go to moves accompanied by some of Sam's Pinterest inspiration we didn't have any hesitation in jumping straight in and they certainly didn't make it hard for us the group was so fun dancing a playing around & making our job so easy. 

They all kept the energy up beat and flowing throughout the night as the girls in the bridal crew didn't stop dancing, as Sam, Drew & they're closest family & friends partied, drunk & danced the night away it couldn't have been a more perfect way to end the night. 

I thank you both for providing me the pleasure of being apart of this special day, I felt very privileged to play my part.

Engagement Photography & Video Gold Coast, Mount Tamborine

We love engagement photography & video, there’s just something about it. The excitement of the upcoming wedding you can really see just how much it shows in the photos, the raw emotion & love our couples have for each other. Which is personally what I enjoy the most about what I do, capturing those precious moments of pure love & happiness. Its what we al aspire to have right? Surrounding myself by this creates a wealth of genuine joy & happiness for each and every one of my couples.  It is a no pressure, fun situation which makes for some great images. generally, with an easy going atmosphere I like to make this as comfortable as I can for my Mr & Mrs to be.

 It is also the best way to get to know our couples, spend the afternoon laughing while at the same time getting comfortable in front of the camera with out even realising it. More often then not we here the male say that actually wasn't as bad as they had originally thought. We have included a selection of our couples for your viewing pleasure. Contact us now & lock in your engagement shoot, We also have special offers for couples that book there wedding with us as well even if its at a later date you will get the discount of your wedding package, Winning!

We are open to any location but we have found a few that we really enjoy & feel that they are ideal for a shoot like this as they all have multiple options. The Spit is one of the Gold coasts most popular spots, with options looking both directions for sunrise and sunset overlooking the beach as well as the greenery inland. I also use this venue a lot for wedding photography and video as well.

Out next favourite spot is Tamborine Mountain Botanical Gardens, this is great for the couple that want to make a bit of a day of it and spend the day up at Mt Tamborine maybe have some lunch or visit a winery, Again the bonus of this spot is amazing gardens & so many different locations with different feels. I have been here several times now for weddings as well & I still find new spots I love every time I go.  

Our third & final is the Benowa Botanical Gardens this is also used as a wedding destination as well but is actually quiet enough to use as a regular spot, the lake is the highlight here with gardens & some interesting structures surrounding it. We suggest these 3 for our engagement clients as we know we will get at least 10 great different images from each spot.  

Engagement videos are only fairly new & they have dual purposes. I personally am going to be pushing more & more to do these as video is my primary passion as well as what I enjoy doing most here at J’adore. You can use as a build up to the wedding, tell people your love story of how you both met & the moment you both fell in love. Talk about how excited you are for the wedding & discuss some of the emotions that flow through you when thinking about the special wedding moments like walking down the isle.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. I love to know what your thoughts are.
