Being an Alexandra Hills-based Wedding Photographer means that I have a soft spot for photographing weddings in the Redlands! One of my favourite wedding venues anywhere in South-East Queensland happens to be in the Redlands; Sirromet Winery!
Sirromet Wedding Photography is amazing and I am always incredibly excited to head there to photograph a wedding. The venue is a one stop venue, with beautiful accommodation, several fantastic wedding ceremony locations, several amazing opportunities for bridal party wedding photos, and some incredible wedding reception options.
I was lucky enough to photograph Kelly and Mark’s amazing Sirromet wedding in May this year and the day was absolutely perfect! Kelly got ready in Merlot House on location at Sirromet Winery. I arrived early to photograph the hair and make up, then headed to photograph the boys in nearby Birkdale.
The boys were suitably relaxed and looked dapper in their matching black suits and ties. Mark’s Dad Greg was even good enough to make me lunch! What a guy!
Back at Merlot House, the girls were ready so we did some final prepping photos and got some pre-wedding family photos before taking those deep breaths and heading to the wedding ceremony.
The ceremony took place at the laguna, a quieter area away from the winery, and beautifully located on a mirror-flat lake.
The ceremony was perfectly officiated by Natasha Hill (https://www.hillscelebrant.com.au/), a celebrant with whom I have worked several times. Natasha is amazing, relaxed and always fun to work with!
The ceremony had tears, smiles, and laughter and was the perfect location for this beautiful couple to say ‘I do’.
After a group photo and some family photos on site, I dragged the bridal party to the secret area behind the laguna which has the most amazing light in the late afternoon, and is well away from prying eyes! I had met most of the bridal party a few years earlier at the wedding of Amanda and Chris (who were also in the bridal party) so it was a very relaxed shoot, and with a bride and groom as good looking as Kelly and Mark, it was a very easy task!
And so to the wedding reception; the part of the day when everyone can finally exhale and let their hair down! Sirromet has some amazing options for the perfect wedding reception. Kelly and Mark’s reception took place in the amazingly photogenic Barrel Room; one of my favourite reception venues to photograph!
The night was electric and so much fun! The speeches were heart-felt and sincere (and not overly long!) and the first dance was incredible!
I left the party once the dancing had kicked in and after a long but fun day I drove home; a mere 7 minutes away! No wonder I love Sirromet Wedding Photography!
