Versace Luxury Wedding Photo & Video - Aaron + Donna

Working with Donna quite closely leading up the the wedding was great. She was on the ball 24/7 and planned the wedding in what seemed like a heartbeat. We had a lot of communication throughout the planning period which was awesome! We love to keep communication as frequent as possible. Being a wedding photographer is more then just taking pretty pictures, to us its about creating relationships & delivering the very best that we can.

RACV Royal Pines Gold Coast Wedding Photo & Video - Mitch & Bonnie

Meeting with these two a short while before the wedding you could just tell they were easy going, down to earth, lovely people. The first initial meet went quite well, we all got along great & in the blink of an eye it was they're wedding day. 

Making our way to one of our most visited wedding venues, RACV Royal Pines we were eager to get into the action. Starting with Bonnie & the girls i think its safe to say for the first time in her life she was nervous. & apparently for Bonnie this is a big deal, so we knew we were in for a great day. With the emotions running high, we could see she just couldn't wait to marry the man of her dreams. 

& might I just add she was looking just gorgeous, having her makeup done by Abby  hair by one of her talented bridesmaids Kelly Coleman with a beautiful head piece to finish it off words couldn't explain. It was definitely her day and she looked nothing short of a princess.

Making our short way over to the boys who were just down the hall, it was no different. Mitch just couldn't wipe the smile off of his face. Just the way we like it!! Getting some quick shots of his preparation it wasn't long before we needed to start our journey down to the chapel.

Originally it was supposed to be an outdoor ceremony, but with the weather as it was this made it a little difficult. Luckily we had the great team from RACV & W Events to save the day with a gorgeous indoors set up. Featuring a big wooden arbor covered in some beautiful floral the set up was still amazing non the less. 

In no time at all, Bonnie was walking through the doors with her father by her side & all eyes on her. As she made her way down the aisle there were tears, smiles and nothing but love flowing her way. Having the celebrant being the infamous Shane Vincent the ceremony was full of laughs. Thus being our first time working with Shane we enjoyed it just as much as everyone else. 

Before long, the vows had been said, the rings had been placed on one another fingers & they were named man & wife. Nothing could bring these two down, not even a little bit of bad weather. 

Walking out of the ceremony we moved straight into family photos, followed by the photos section. Which i think its safe to say all parties loved! we had a special visit from their fury baby Sonny who was just GORGEOUS! Getting Sonny  in the photos was just perfect, a sweet little family portrait for both Bonnie & Mitch to treasure forever. 

After e finished the photos section it was time for the reception, coming straight into the first dance yet again there was nothing but smiles and love filing the room. Moving beautifully around the room to the sweet sound of Chris Hutchison it was definitely a moment to remember! 

Moving onto the speeches they were kept short & sweet, although Dad’s speech was very special as they always are. Listening to the love he shares for his daughter Bonnie was pure love, one of my favourite parts is hearing the speeches. Out comes all of the heartfelt beautiful words of wisdom, love & appreciation. 

It was now time for us to head off shortly after speeches had completed, saying our goodbyes we wishes Mitch & Bonnie the very best!! Cant wait to get them into the studio to show them their wedding gallery, album design and wedding video!! :D 

Gold Coast Bond University Wedding Photography - Naim & Shamiez

On April 1st we had the pleasure of shooting Naim & Shamez’s wedding located at Bond University, doing only photo I was excited to get back into the photography side of things. Mostly doing video which is my primary interest, its always nice to go back to photography as to me it feels new again, an exciting challenge non the less. 

Meeting the couple a week prior to the wedding at Bond we had a brief walk around the premises, viewing the reception area & discussing the visions Naim & Shaimez had for their wedding day. Shaimez loved the architectural aspect of Bond University, thus being our main aim we used this to our full advantage. This being my first wedding shot at Bond University I was very excited ti be creating some unique images.

Getting there an hour early we had a wonder around the University, scoping out as much as possible to find the best locations around the university for the photos section. Having two hours to capture these images was amazing! Really having the time to nail each & every shot. 

Naim & the groomsman had arrived it was time to get straight into it, starting with the guys we wasted no time in getting the ball rolling. Getting some nice group shots, also a few fun ones with the patterned socks they all had on we breezed right through it.

Not long after we had finished shooting the groomsmen it was time for the first look, Naim waiting patiently to see his gorgeous bride Shaimez, you could see just the excitement building with each moment that passed. Walking up behind him with her giggles in the background his smile continued to grow bigger & bigger. With a few words he turned around to be in instant ore of his beautiful wife. I think at this point we were all in ore of how beautiful Shaimez looked, this truly was such a special moment & we felt very privileged to have been there to witness & capture this wonderful moment in time for the both of them. 

It was now time to start shooting the Bride & Groom together, this really is one of my favourite parts of photo, getting creative and capturing the excitement of love combining. & In such a unique location who wouldn't have been excited?! Starting with the tower this was a bit of a mission but it was well worth it. This image will have definitely been one my favourite shots of the day! I am very excited to be sharing this shot with both Nail & Shaimez the following day. Taking some more shots down below the magic continued to flow. 

Once the entire bridal party had arrived we began the group shots, which for me is always a highlight. After completing this section we got a few more of the bride & groom before heading up to the pine forrest, which with the sun setting at this point we were able to get a beautiful golden background. 

By this stage it was now time to head up to reception and get prepared for the entrance of the bridal party & the gorgeous bride Shaimez. Naim & the rest of the bridal party entered with nothing but huge smiles and beams of happiness as everyone awaited the big moment. Soon after Shamiez & her father walked through the doors, you could see the emotions in the room rising as she made her way to Naim. 

The reminder of the night was filled with beautiful vows to one another, heart felt speeches, awesome dancing & smiles all round. It really was a true pleasure to be apart of such an amazing experience & share in this with Naim & Shamiez. 

From the crew here at J’adore, we wish them nothing but happiness, love & laughter as they begin their journey as husband and wife. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our blog, we appreciate it greatly. Feel free to share with friends & family to share in this wonderful experience.
