I would say 80% of our bridal clients are travelling Internationally or Interstate to wed. This often means we have to be creative throughout the process with Skype/Whatsapp call’s and lot’s of emails! I try to complete a photography consultation alongside a hair & makeup trial when our clients arrive for their wedding, often the week OF their wedding. Obviously there is a lot of trust between all parties. We are use to this process but not every bride can handle this. Well… Cindy could! I literally met her ON her wedding day! This is always fun trying to pick the bride when you first walk in – hehe. I did cheat and ask for photo’s of Cindy & Luke prior so I had an idea. Cindy and her maids were chilaxed and ready to party! I wasn’t a ‘fly on the wall’ by an means… I was laughing the entire time with the girls. When going through all the images delivered there definitely were more laughing shots than anything else. A pretty good representation of the day itself.
It was a pretty iconic Kingscliff wedding. Everyone got ready at Mantra on Salt Beach, Kingscliff. Ceremony at Hastings Point and reception at Babalou, Kingscliff Hotel. The weather forecast was TERRIBLE. Thunderstorms and floods. Oh the joys. Lucky for us (AGAIN?? Thank you Mother Nature!) the day turned out better than perfect. Blue skies and warm sunshine. I was really happy they got their dream ceremony outside.
The thunderstorms did hit after the creative location shots. I did some research prior and found these amazing paper bark tree’s that recently had been burnt. Giving a harsh contrast against the beauty of a bride. The storm held off until literally 2mins after we drove off – I couldn’t see 2ft in front of my car! One side of the highway was black and they other bright blue! Pretty cool.
Cindy’s dress itself was iconic. Exploding Gold Coast designer ”Made with Love” bridal gown, Frankie. The spilt was everything! Perfect gown to float and dance the night away.
Congratulations Cindy & Luke!
