When a long time friend you went to primary school with back in Africa asks you to photograph his wedding, you get a rush of nervousness and excitement all at once! I know I say this often but it is truly an honour to be a photographer for such an intimate milestone in someones life.
Brendan and Lisa are two beautifully kind and caring individuals, and together, in their words, "they are a loving partnership, not because it is perfect but because it is wonderful."
Brendan's parents were flower farmers in Zimbabwe and so his mother, Mandy, has always had the passion for all things floral. When you see all the amazing flower arrangements which she created with so much love and the odd tear, you will know why her family and friends have talked her into starting up Bespoke Bouquets!
After enjoying the morning photographing the girls getting ready, being beautified by the exceptional Beauty Case, capturing their lovely wedding details and then the boys getting up to no good at Flaxton Grove, it was time for the ceremony at Flaxton Gardens, with that absolutely breathtaking view of the Sunshine Coast.
Once all the confetti was thrown, the family portraits taken and some mingling, we snuck off to a secret spot for the bridal party to relax, enjoy some beverages and delicious canapés while the sun went down. The perfect recipe to take some stunning bridal portraits!
The reception was held in the barrel room, that star filled ceiling at Flaxton Gardens and as Brendan said, "the chef and proprietor Alan made sure the food was one of the talking points for all the right reasons."
Working on weddings all the time we certainly have our favourite vendors and BenJam we are huge fans of. Yes we recommend them to every couple who is seeking a band of their style. They get every guest on the dance floor, along with some shakers and a tambourine. Lisa & Brendan's wedding was no exception, the dance floor was packed right up until the sparkler exit.
