Love Story

Kangaroo Point Brisbane Wedding Photography - Shaun & Kimberly

Having meet with the couple a week or two prior to the wedding it was getting all very exciting as we spoke about some of the finer details. Being quite a laid back couple the meeting was easy going, which we love because we are such easy going people. Kim & Shaun having everything well organised it was now only a matter of time before the big day arrived. 

As we made our short journey from Gold Coast to Brisbane we had nothing but blue sky’s. Arriving at Dockside apartments we grabbed all of our gear and set off to the boys room. Only spending a short time here we were in & out quite quickly. 

Before long we were up at the girls and my goodness did they look stunning! Kim looking especially gorgeous on her big day I think just about everyone in the room was in ore of her, particularly her fasha. (father) for those of you who don't follow. Having her makeup and hair done by EEGO Styling she looked flawless!! Taking a short amount of time getting the detail shots, with stunning royal blue heels this finished the perfect look off with a BANG!

Once Kim was in her dress it was time for all 5 bridesmaids to begin the process of finalising those finishing touches, putting on a stunning belt with a gorgeous display of crystals centred on the front it made the dress from Luv Bridal look even more beautiful then before. Not to mention how well Kim wore it! After putting on the shoes it was time for some fun photos with the girls, and having 5 bridesmaids this made for some gorgeous photos, you could tell how much each of the girls mean to one another. Also having Kids little sister there as apart of the bridal party made it an experience for them both they will never forget. 

As the big moment got nearer it was time for us to head down in preparation for the girls arrival. Making our way down there was guests surrounding the ceremony patiently awaiting Kim’s presence, as Shaun stood there smiling awaiting the women of his dreams we got ready for the special moment. 

As each of the bridesmaids made their way down the aisle it wasn't long before it was Kim’s turn, with tears of joy she walked down to meet the man she was about to call her wedded husband. As the ceremony took place there was nothing but smiles and deep stares of love at one another. As Celebrant Kathy Dodd concluded the ceremony  every stood & cheered as they walked back down the aisle as Mr & Mrs Hunt. 

Getting into our fun part of the day, the photos section we went for a little walk on the path along the Brisbane River, getting a few cool group shots whilst we walked, by the seats and by the water this bridal party was a breeze to shoot not to mention a whole lot of fun! Now it was the for Bride & Groom, capturing some gorgeous sunset shots we often remind our couples that this is the moments they get to take in the fact that they are now Husband & Wife. Seeing them both soak up the moment was beautiful, making for some amazing images

Heading back to the venue we made our way around the tables taking shots of family & friends whilst they enjoyed the beautiful venue of The Landing Dockside. Following the meals it was time to get into the cutting of the cake shortly crafted by none other than Sugar Sister Cake Lab . After followed the speeches, which for us is always a good part of the day. Heading funny stories of childhood memories, & all the fun in-between… but this time we had a surprise speech from Shaun’s son Jameson, which was one of the most classic spur of the moment first liners I have ever heard, tops it all! Everyone was in stitches at this point wishing we had it on film. Priceless moments like this only come by here & there, heres hoping one of the guests was filming away. Too good to miss!!

Not to much longer after this it was time for us to pack up the gear & head on home. Giving our best wishes to both Shaun & Kim we made our short journey home. Cant wait to be sharing these photos with you all, we hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed taking them!

From the team here at J’adore, we wish you nothing but all the very best for your marriage & your beautiful little family. May you receive all the happiness, love & joy in the world & much much more. 

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Hunt



Until next time,

Braeside Wedding Photography & Videography Gold Coast

This is another one of J'adore’s favourite wedding venue's that we love. A wedding ceremony held in Braeside Chapel captures that nostalgic feeling as the vintage timber creates an air of simplicity to showcase some of the best country weddings. When ever we post one of our wedding Video or images from this venue to our facebook page there is always a big response. 

The Chapel seats 90 guests plus the bridal party, & lets not forget to mention it has its own audio system, which is great for the team at here if you're choosing to go with one of our videography packages, as there isn't much room left in the chapel we believe this is where a team like ours really helps as our photographers and videographers know exactly where to be & when. With different companies a space like this really can be difficult to work in as we often get in each other's way.

Braeside Chapel on the Gold coast is 15 minutes away from Surfers paradise & conveniently located 10 minutes away from Broadbeach. It's perfectly within distance to all major hotels for after the legalities. But why would you want to leave? 

The chapel is situated on the upper lawn and garden that's close to the large marquee for receptions. There are many photographic opportunities at Braeside venue, such as the games areas, the rustic old shed, the Southern Cross Windmill, just to name a few.

The large Marquee for receptions or any style or celebration, measures 15 x 12 metres and is fully lined. As you emerge into the reception area, it's lit up by two chandeliers at either end with the most attractive large chandelier being in the centre. Attached to the marquee is an additional tent measuring 6 x 3 metres, with lighting, electricity & water available for the use of your selected caterer. In front of the marquee is an area with seating and plenty of room for your guests to gather, relax & enjoy canapés as well as drinks from the nearby bar, whilst the bridal party completes their photos down on the lower lawn before joining their guests in the marquee.

The marquee will seat 120 at round tables that take up to 10 chairs.

We have been lucky enough to shoot lots including just wedding photography & just videography, but as mentioned it's always ideal when we can do our wedding photo & video combo at this amazing venue.

Ryan & Helen's Love Story......

I meet Helen at the end of 2012 before her and Ryan got married early in 2013 and I was given the job of doing the wedding video and flew over from the Gold Coast. I spent a few days with them and there close friends and family before the wedding and really felt at home.

So with another Adelaide trip booked, I was keen to spend some time with them again and after a quick chat with Helen decided on a couples photo shoot that then turned into a video/photos session. 

I also learnt that Ryan had recently received some devastating health news being diagnosed with lung cancer, I am emotional at the best of times especially with a couple like this that meant alot to me. There wedding video certainly helped kickstart my career. 

I love both these guys and I have put together a video that I hope will speak for itself as I am a little lost for words.

I really Hope you took the time to watch the video and that you enjoyed it. Here are a few of the Images from our catch up .
