A few weekends ago now we were lucky enough to be apart of the Marriott Surfers Paradise Wedding Open day. Inclusive of many wonderful vendors such as
Featuring a gorgeous wedding reception set up in one of Marriott 's spacious events rooms by W Events Group, they yet again have surprised me with another unique set up. The creativity of this amazing group never disappoints. W Events group had also set up a beautiful wedding ceremony upstairs in another of the Marriott reception rooms which is a great wet weather option, always good to know you have back up! Displaying a beautiful ceremony which was featured in another of the W events groups styling for the Marriott that we were lucky enough to shoot a few months ago.
Moving on, the day was great! with yummy little treats that were impossible to say no to supplied by Marriott it gave us the little sugar hit we needed! Sarah & Donna did a great job of putting together the Marriott's very first wedding open day.
Throughout the course of this day we had a little competition going, to win $1000 off you're wedding all you had to do was write down few simple details and put them in the glass box. We also had a few runner ups as we couldn't let the good deal pass anyone by!
All in all we had a great day mingling with some other wedding vendors and displaying our favourite weddings. We thank the Marriott for having us & cant wait for the next one!!
Until next time…
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
