Chantal & Ricky's wedding photography

Every wedding has certain elements to obtaining the perfect day. whether it be traditional or casual, every small aspect plays a part in one of the most important days of your life. On October the 2nd 2015 J'adore had the Privilege of shooting in the heart of the Gold coast hinterland of Mudgeeraba at Boomerang farm. The wedding venue features a fully furnished vintage style barn with an old rustic theme that perfectly complimented the two personalities that were Ricky and Chantal. 


Before the ceremony J'adore travelled to Broadbeach to shoot the bride getting primed with her wedding party. Between three photographers Chantal's Bohemian Bridal composition came to life as she flawlessly accentuated her vintage styled lace wedding dress, with babies breath and lavender flowers. It was a beautiful day outside, so we were able to capture exquisite and sentimental moments of the Chantal's father seeing her for the first time. Chantal's bridesmaids collaborated her bohemian theme with knee length lace dresses and simple yet sophisticated flats.



The ceremony was positioned out in the natural light. Beyond the deck and passed the gully laid a remote treehouse. It created the perfect setting out under the tree top canopies as Chantal and Ricky made their vows surrounded by the natural elements. 


The Boomerang farm has some exquisite spots for photos.  The wedding group gathered with us to capture memorable moments as we toured the many areas. From the entrance way between two ponds the light was perfect for seizing some great photo's. The bridesmaids felt a little spontaneous as they were adamant on getting the rustic theme photo in the shed. It was a fun filled afternoon catching the hilarious group as they shared jokes in between with gleeful appearances. 


As the sun was starting to go down, we decided to take Chantal and Ricky away to the venues most intimate spots. From out in the open on one of the holes of the golf course, to the visually beautiful tunnel under the tree top canopies. 


The reception was glistening with fairy lights that hung along the ceiling. Small vases of babies breath flowers were situated around the venue.  Drinks were poured around as delicious salads and wood fired pizzas by Crusta Woodfired were delivered throughout the night.


By nightfall it was time for Chantal and Ricky to take their first step together as husband and wife on the dance floor.  The upbeat sound of Riptide written by Vance Joy surrounded the outdoor dance floor. The drums were beating, and it seemed like they were in their own world of pure bliss as they laughed, it was such an enriching moment to capture as these two carefree souls came together to create something special. 


Capturing Chantal and Ricky was more than pleasure. Their vibrant and laid back nature let the J'adore team create something sentimental.  Capturing two people coming together on one of the most important days of their lives is more than a job. We are experiencing a day where family and friends gather to join in on a blissful encounter.
