Gold Coast Wedding Photography

Rainbow Bay, Gold Coast

Saki and Daniel certainly picked the right day for their Gold Coast Wedding; the sun shone, conditions were perfect and with a backdrop like this, nothing could be more ideal! I love Gold Coast Wedding Photography – being from the UK originally, I still pinch myself when i get to photograph a wedding on a beach as beautiful as this!

The guys chose Rainbow Bay for their wedding location, and what a stunning spot to say ‘I do!’ To say the wedding was casual is putting it mildly! Daniel arrived bare-footed and relaxed, and Saki followed shortly after. Her parents were visiting from Japan and appeared to love being in the Queensland warmth!

The ceremony was beautifully officated and was filled with laughter! With wedding photography, I use two cameras, one of which has a longer lens which allows for those more intimate and natural poses and manages to capture those belly laughs and tears without being invasive.

After a fantastic cheer from the congregation and a euphoric celebration from Daniel, we did a group photo and family shots by the rocks before I stole Daniel and Saki and whisked them away to Snapper Rocks for some wedding photographs.

And wow! What a session! Gold Coast Wedding Photography rocks! No more words needed – how amazing do these guys look?!

And after a amazing wedding photography session we headed to the hotel rooftop where the reception was in full swing and Daniel and Saki played catch up! The views were amazing, the day was amazing, the couple were amazing! All in all it was a great day for Gold Coast Wedding Photography!

Manly Wedding Photography

Manly Wedding Photographer

Date: 22nd October 2018

Location: Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club, Manly

I love photographing weddings in Manly! I lived there for several years and am still local so know the area very well! I have also been a member of Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club for many years so was delighted to be asked to capture Ray and Clara’s amazing wedding last October!

And what a day it was! It was a perfect day for Manly Wedding Photography – the sun shone, the wind was kind, and look at that for a wedding ceremony backdrop! The Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club is a pretty special place to be married! Oh and Clara and Ray looked pretty good too!

Ray was relaxed and smiling as the guests arrived and Clara was more relaxed than when I had met the guys a few days prior when she pulled up in the wedding car! And how amazing is that dress!

Debbie Thomas did a fantastic job as always, officiating the ceremony and even wove (see what I did there!) a knot-tieing element into the ceremony! I have photographed several weddings with Debbie and she is a star – always a lot of fun, very easy to work with and nothing is ever too much for her! You can check out her web page here:

Cheers indeed! Congratulations on the perfect wedding ceremony guys! And all the best for the future!

The great thing about Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club is that you don’t have to leave the premises for beautiful bridal party photos! We headed down to the boat ramp for some gorgeous bay and boat shots, and didn’t the guys do well!

And happily there was no need to head elsewhere for the reception as Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club have you sorted there too! And with amazing water views and outstanding food to boot!

Congratulations on the perfect wedding day guys and thanks for being so much fun to photograph! Best Wishes, Andy

Beth and Jason’s Old Petrie Town Wedding

Old Petrie Town Wedding: Beth and Jason’s Perfect Day:

Location: Old Petrie Town, Brisbane

Jason contacted me a few months prior to his big day asking if I was free to photograph his Old Petrie Town wedding. We arranged to catch up at Old Petrie Town for a chat about his plans and to scope out some photo locations. Happily Old Petrie Town is one of those places that looks good regardless of where you point your camera so we weren’t spoilt for choice, and there’s even plenty of spots to photograph should there be rain on the big day!

Fast forward a few months and I was back at Old Petrie Town for real! And it looked amazing! I arrived over an hour early as I usually do when I am photographing a wedding (you never know what the traffic’s going to be like, and it’s always good to check the place isn’t underwater!) and went for a wander. I had only met Beth a few days prior to the wedding as she had been away when I met Jason at the venue, but both bride and groom had been very laid back in the few months counting down to the wedding, as Jason was on his big day when he arrived with his dashing groomsmen!

The location for the ceremony was impeccable – beneath and in front of a gorgeous centuries-old fig tree. What an amazing backdrop! I snapped people arriving and taking their seats and the groomsmen looking nervous and anxious. I love the build up to the ceremony – the anticipation and nervous tension before the bride’s arrival! And even laid back Jason looked a little bit nervous!

But he needn’t have: Beth arrived on time looking stunning and her bridesmaids looked amazing in their matching blue and red dresses and bright red shoes! I took a few snaps of Beth’s Dad lowering the veil: I had been given the heads up that Dad was odds on favourite to shed a few tears on the day and he did; good on him!

And then there was quiet…and the aisle song started. Jason’s face as he saw his bride for the first time was priceless – and Beth couldn’t have looked any happier seeing her man waiting at the end of the aisle. Her dad did shed a few tears too!

The ceremony started with a prayer – during which I caught Beth’s Mum having a sneaky peek at her daughter. Sometimes the best shots are the spontaneous ones!

And for me, this wedding was the wedding of sneaky peeks and lingering glimpses! Check out these photos and the look of love on everyone’s faces! I love these shots – totally spontaneous, not posed or rehearsed, just genuine emotion!

And every wedding album needs a photograph of the parents during the ceremony – my kids are far too young to get married but I know I will be a blubbering mess when they do get wed!

Following a perfect reading of the vows the guys exchanged wedding rings (they fit!) and then came the part everyone was waiting for: the kiss! We headed to a table for the signing and a few more shots and then it was official: here is Australia’s newest couple! Congratulations guys!

Jason and Beth brought along their fur baby along for support – cute! – and he didn’t miss out on a photo opportunity! Then it was time for the hardest shot of the day: the group shot! Happily everyone behaved and using the fig tree as a backdrop we got some fantastic shots!

Jason and Beth had warned me the week prior to their wedding that posing for photos was not their favourite thing! No problems at all – I let the guys be themselves and picked on the bridal party instead who happily didn’t mind the camera one little bit!

Old Petrie Town is filled with amazing rustic barns and outhouses that make for incredible wedding photography backdrops. I could have spent all afternoon there! We did some fun shots, a few posed shots, some relaxed shots and some moody shots with no complaints or tantrums!! Time does indeed fly when you’re having fun!

Happily Beth and Jason are a very photogenic couple and incredibly easy going and made my job very easy indeed!

One of my favourite parts of the day was when Beth asked if we had done all of the ‘nice’ photos. Sure, I replied, why? The bridesmaids all ripped off their high heels and brought out some comfy bright red pumps for the rest of the afternoon! Outstanding!

The sky had been darkening for a short while and it did eventually rain – but I say this honestly: rain is not a bad thing! First of all rain is meant to be lucky, secondly an umbrella makes for an amazing prop and forces you to snuggle up to your new spouse, and thirdly: rain means rainbows! I don’t think I have ever seen anyone as excited as these guys to have a rainbow in their photos!

I used the rain as an opportunity to grab some shots of Jason and Beth sharing an umbrella and we headed towards the other end of Old Petrie Town, to the old train station: probably my favourite part! The rain eased off so we got some nice shots of the groomsmen and bridesmaids then I took off the pace and let Jason and Beth relax and be themselves. That didn’t mean I stopped shooting! I was just a little more inconspicuous about it!

But all good things must come to an end and I finally let the guys chill out and have a few drinks before the start of the reception, which was on site at the upstairs function room of the Heritage Hotel. I headed in first to grab some shots of the table settings and decorations, and a quick portrait of each of the guests.

Then the guys were called in and sadly it was time to leave, but not before a few glamour shots on the stairs!

“Hey Andy, I just wanted to say thanks so much for the photos. You did an amazing job with them, Beth was absolutely pumped!” Jason
