On April 15th we had yet another gorgeous wedding at the Intercontinental, located in Sanctuary cove on the gold coast shooting for the gorgeous bride & groom, Todd & Jill. Having meet with the love birds only a week prior to the wedding to sort out the finer details we found that we got along quite well, with the wedding just around the corner it was all getting very exciting! Although the relaxed nature of the both of them was very calming, a very easy going couple they were more then happy to go with the flow, just what we love! We like to make any encounter had with the J’adore weddings team to be enjoyable, stress free & most importantly a quality experience. Bringing a calm, fun & enthusiastic team this is always achievable.
Starting with the boys we made our way over to the ‘Queenslander Suite’, setting up the gear while Todd rounded the boys up we started shooting near instantly. Playing around with the wedding detail photos, getting creative as always it wasn't long before the fun began. chatting away about this mornings round of golf the boys had played it was a funny conversation, they really were a great bunch of blokes to be shooting with. Never a dull moment to say the very least. When it came time to read the letter Jill had written for him you could see just how much those words meant to him, as he read it out loud there were definitely tears starting to flow.
Now it was time to head on over to the gorgeous bride Jill, walking in the first thing we noticed was Jill absolutely glowing with beauty. Meeting the bridesmaids and the two little ones Charlotte & Ivy who might we add all looked gorgeous we settled in with the gear and got right into it. While James got started on the brides details, Isla organised the girls on the couch and got some group shots capturing all of those moments of happiness while the reality of it being Jills wedding day started to really soak in. Little Ivy was having fun giving us all a little show of her roley polly skills, of course capturing all the smiles in-between. Having worked with children for many years I personally always enjoy getting to take photos of the little ones, always a challenge the get those cheeky smiles on camera in-between all the distractions around them, but I love it none the less. The time had now come for Jill to put her gorgeous dress on, turning her into a real life princess. It was safe to say we all were admiring Jill and how stunning she looked in this moment. Opening Todd’s letter, reading out loud it is never easy for us to hold back the tears of joy & happiness we feel for our couples on this special day, & this was no different. The love these two shared with one another was infinite, we were very thankful to have been apart of their special day.
Before long we could see guests arriving by the chapel, which meant it was nearly go time! Heading on down to the chapel to set everything up in preparation for the big moment, as guests starting to find their seats the boys made their way up to alter anxiously awaiting Jill to make her entrance. As the bridesmaids made their way down the isle you could see the happy/anxious & excited Todd was more then ready to marry the women of his dreams. Making her way down the isle there wasn't one set of eyes that weren't set on Jill, looking absolutely beautiful it was time to become husband & wife.
Following the ceremony we had our photos section, getting in the amazingly talented Dean Agar for this part of the day was an absolute pleasure. Shooting alongside Dean is always a great experience. Choosing all of the best spots the photos were effortlessly beautiful & we cant wait to share them all with our viewers.
It was now time for the more relaxed part of the day, the reception. Where our couples take the time to really let it all sink in, & enjoy some great music with family & friends along with the heartfelt speeches from their nearest & dearest. We love hearing the speeches of close friends & family, always so heart warming with a few funny stories here & there its always a good laugh along with a few tears shed. As the nights festivities continued on as did the cameras, rolling on through the night the reception was a blast.
Wishing this awesome couple nothing but the very best from the team here at J’adore, it was an absolute pleasure getting to shoot yet another successful wedding at the Intercontinental. May the rest of your marriage be filled with happiness, love & laughter.
Until next time
