RiverLife Brisbane Wedding Photo & Video - Ryan + Kelila

Having been told from the mother of the bride that Kelila had been frantically watching over the weather for 3 months prior to the wedding it couldn’t have been a more perfect day. There was no wind, hardly any clouds & beautiful sunshine warming everyone up on a cool winters day. 

Greeting Ryan at the ceremony location which must I add looked FANTASTIC! Styled by Sweet Petite Weddings & Elopments they did an amazing job, the arbor was definitely my favourite part! 

Ryan seemed very calm & collected, when I asked him if he was nervous he said not at all. Asking Kelila the same question when she arrived I got the same answer, you could sense between them without even seeing them together they were perfect for one another. Its not often I can say I get that kind of vibe from couples without seeing them together but in this instance I think just about everyone could feel it. & Might I just add she looked stunning in her Gladstone Bridal gown! 

As the ceremony went on, the sunlight was perfect. Giving us  good variety of shining through the back of the arbor whilst also hiding behind clouds to give us some nice even light. Celebrant Sheila Aplin delivered this beautifully. 

Soon after moving onto the photo’s & video section ( our favourite part ) we had such an amazing sunset happening in the background. With some beautiful pink highlighted clouds & a beautiful couple before us it really doesn’t get much better! As the night slowly crept in the city lights revealed themselves &… it did get better! A the sun finally set the reflection on the water was just beautiful. 

All of the Bridal party had such beautiful flowers, I loved the vibrancy of them & it certainly creates a bit of contrast to the images which we love! Flowers supplied by Wild at Heart Flowers.

Throughout the ceremony we had some wonderful speeches & some heartfelt yet humous words said. The cake was cut, the dance was done & in came the funky dance moves of family & friends. We had such an amazing time creating life long memories for the two & cannot wait to be sharing them all with you. 

From the team here at J’adore, we thank you both for having us be apart of your special day. We wish you both nothing but the very best in this life. Congratulations!
