Young & in love, what better place to be. Meeting with these two only a few months before the wedding at the photos section location we went for a stroll, spoke about potential ideas for photos on their special day. I could just tell these two love birds couldn't wait to be happily married.Read More
Not so long ago now we had the pleasure of shooting a stunning styled wedding reception on one of the many beautiful Wyndham cruise ships. As you could imagine it was sea themed & just breath taking. The Wishes events team never fail to go above & beyond when it comes to event styling, always providing 110% effort to provide quality settings just about anywhere!
With a highly dedicated team their work is without a doubt, the best of the best. Featuring a beautiful ceremony on the roof of the boat it was defiantly one of a kind, not your every day wedding ceremony location thats for sure! & thats what we liked the most, something so unique that still had that special feel to it, weather you kept it small or had a larger guest list Wyndham Cruises has boats to cater for your needs.
Taking wedding receptions to a new level, or sea level should I say this was a spectacular way to spend the rest of your special day. As the Gold Coast’s longest-running river cruise company, Wyndham Cruises pride themselves on they're combination of quality, service, immaculate cruise vessel and passion for what they do best. They're company focuses on providing on the best possible cruise experience for our customers, rather than taking shortcuts.
Departing from an easy & convenient to reach access point in the heart of Surfers Paradise, they're cruises offer a combination of value, service and comfort that we believe is unmatched on the Gold Coast. Also, don’t forget to keep them in mind for any special occasions - Wyndham Cruises offers a variety of additional cruise options such as Christmas Parties, Hen’s Nights, Corporate functions & much more, providing a wonderful venue to hold such events on the waters of the Gold Coast.
Going for a quick cruise along surfers paradise river we had the opportunity to get some great shots of both our bride & groom. Despite the rain & heavy wind everyone worked together effortlessly to create some quality images for all vendors involved. The bride having her hair & makeup done by the one & only Holly Bell she looked just stunning. Makeup done to perfection we would recommend holly to any bridal party looking for a quality MUA. With the beautiful airbrush look she looked like a princess, didn’t fade one bit! Even with the all wind & the rain our bride looked immaculate all the way through. For those of you who aren't familiar with holly & her many talents head on over to her IG or follow this link to her website to check out some more of her flawless work. Having the stunning gown supplied by none other then Serendipity gowns our bride looked like a AMAZING! Featuring gorgeous beaded detail, custom designed specifically for this dress you can't get much better then this.
We love working alongside our well known & trusted vendors, always providing quality products & services that are just to good to pass up!

Big thanks to all the vendors involved; Wishes events, Wyndham Cruises, Holly Bell MUA, House of Serendipity Gowns & also Tanya & Pete for playing our beautiful bride & groom for the day.

Untill next time,
We love shooting at the Intercontinental on the Gold Coast, as we are avidly familiar around the whole venue we are well aware of all the best spots for the photo's section. This was exciting for us as we got to be apart of another wedding at the beautiful Sanctuary Cove chapel. The gorgeous non-denominational chapel features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Coomera River, featuring a mezzanine floor for unique photography opportunities. Designed for privacy from the rest of the resort, the chapel also offers cushioned pew seating for 80 guests, an ornate pipe organ, glass-topped registry table, & a white marble aisle.
We readily turned up at the glass chapel, videography gear in hand ready to start the day. As we quickly set up the tripods, while also checking to make sure the audio was in check, we decided to get some more detailed shots of the chapel for the couple’s video, as it's always great to have and look back on.
The chapel quickly filled up, which meant the beautiful bride was going to be arriving very soon, we were excited to see what the ceremony had in store for us all. After some personal vows that had some tears glistening with many of the guests, we were outside conducting a butterfly ceremony in honour of Melisa's sister that had passed. This beautiful butterfly releasing tradition. Releasing butterflies at weddings has also become a popular new tradition. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to rice, confetti & balloons … which is a beautiful way to celebrate your union!
As we used the Intercontinental to our advantage we got to use some of the best spots available throughout the whole venue including the reflection pool. We eventually left to go to the LakeLands Golf Course for the beautiful reception. After some very heartfelt speeches, everyone got right into music & the dancing begun, very positive we left the night on a high. We wish Adrian & Melisa their very best in their newly married life!!
