Gold Coast weddings
With a big adventure ahead of our team with this amazing couple we were all excited to get started. Having had our team meet Sid & Karlee prior to the wedding, we knew they were going to be feeling extra comfortable with us on not just one, but on TWO of their wedding days.Read More
Heading down to the chapel in preparation for Meagan's arrival you could see just how excited everyone was to see the beautiful bride. The ceremony was just perfect, Announcing Mr & Mrs Boyce for the first time, the entire chapel stood and cheered for them as they walked back down the isle as husband & wife.Read More
We had such a great time shooting for Rhys and Abbey's wedding, that by the end of the night some of the crew was on a joking basis after the formalities were conducted.
As we turned up to Rhys's house we were excited as today was a full day of both photo and video. Having only three goomsmen. The first thing we did was go outside and start an epic bucks night cards game that consisted of drinking and a few punches if chosen the wrong card.
We pulled up a few blocks away from the ceremony to get some extra footage of the girls ,what I was avidly excited/surprised to see Abbey's wedding gown. As it clung to her body, the white lace elegantly collaborated with the pink underlay matching perfectly with her chosen bouquet of wild flowers. Here we got some great moving footage of the girls just joking around and being themselves, it was great to just get some natural emotion on camera, and boy it was amazing! because the girls weren't camera shy at all, which made great footage.
As we turned up at Advancetown in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, we were delighted to note that it was an outside ceremony, this makes for great lighting. It was a wide and open setting to which meant we had a lot of room to muck around with, even with all of Rhy's and Abbey's closest friends and family watching. With our tripod's set up and our groom audio'd up we were ready!
Abbey turned up in the combi van, and watching Rhy's as she descended down the aisle after her beautiful bridesmaids wearing a shade of dark grey. It was here we got to learn a little more about the couple. and it's also one of our favourite parts of any day, the vows! We got a little teary even at the whole process, and all too soon it ended with a kiss and the signing of the offical documents.
As the rest of the afternoon was setting out to be rainy with showers starting to sprinkle on consistently throughout the day, for the photo section we went to an array of different locations across the hinterland of the Gold Coast. Our first area to play around in though was an open lake above a dam. This provided some amazing intimate shots of the couple with an amazing background showing the hues of purples and blue that a storm creates.
We then started to travel back to the reception but not before stopping at another photo section where an we had a wide an open lake to get creative with, and the rain definitely didn't deter us from getting those killer shots of this awesome couple.
The Markette was set up and everyone was in full swing of starting to the party, with a list of congratulations were being thrown around. This quickly escalated into a party game that kicked off the start of the reception. With a series of questions that the crowd had to start answering, this caused a few laughs to erupt from everyone.
when the day is setting out to be perfect around the Gold Coast, our team is always excited to be apart of another wedding. This beach side wedding was going to be full of colours with the natural light and a fun crew set out to fill the day was epic moments!
As we were doing video for Jackson and Amy, we set off to Jacksons apartment by the beach in Coolangatta. The moment Jess got there with Matt our other videographer. Jackson and his crew of groomsmen were getting ready at Reflection Towers Two in Coolangatta, which made this soo much easier for the J'adore crew to plan time accordingly between the two individuals
The girls were getting ready in the penthouse at Mantra Twin Towns in Coolangatta, this set us up for some beautiful outside portraits once Amy was finished getting ready. When you're making that commitment to say I do, you want everything to go perfectly, and how can you go wrong with an exquisite Karen Willis Holmes bridal gown? You can't it's just that simple, And Amy's sequenced dress so beautiful! First though, hair and makeup was done by Tina Kristen Weddings, to which did a superb job highlighting Amy's big beautiful blue eyes. she complemented her looks perfectly with a Bits & Buds white bouquet.
Turning up at the ceremony, it was the perfect day for video and with Beautiful Weddings helping Amy achieve perfection on her big day, the sun played into everyones favour perfectly. This made for amazing vibrant colours throughout the whole video as their ceremony/photos section was near the beach. For Jackson & Amy's wedding ceremony, they hired the funny and enthusiastic celebrant Anne Campbell , whom conducted the ceremony/legalities with poise and elegance while also keeping the crowd hanging off of her words.
The photo section was held outside along the beachside at Coolangatta, this always excites the team, as we love playing with the natural environment, what was even better was the bridal party we had to work with. You could tell Amy picked well with her choice in brides maids as they brought the fire and energy we needed for video, this was accompanied with Jacksons funny half of groomsmen that were keeping the time we had upbeat and fun.
It was time than to head towards the reception and that was held at Twin Towns Resort Gold Coast. It's impressive location, stylish appointed romans and elegant decor perfectly complement the panoramic ocean views that around this luxury venue.
Jackson and Amy are such a sweet couple, and you can tell from the way he looks at Amy that he adores the ground she walks on, this sweet love is what we are all hoping to achieve.
