High Church Wedding, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

The proposal: After I slightly foiled Conor’s attempt at Kondalilla Falls because I was tired & cranky, he asked me while we were enjoying a drink & a cheeseboard at a beautiful hotel in Maleny. 

Hen’s night: Treated to a weekend away at Mt Tamborine with my closest girls | Buck’s night: Weekend in the city, stayed at an AirBnB in Teneriffe. 

One of the best things we did was hire a 12 seater bus as our bridal car. Parking was limited at our venue so it only required one space and it allowed us all to be together!  | Honeymoon: Renaissance Hotels Koh Samui 

Funniest Moment on your wedding day: The Shoe Game!

Special Memory: Heading to photos after the ceremony, in our Bridal Bus, surrounded by our entire bridal party, feeling blissfully happy and relaxed.

Special thanks to Jacki for making our ceremony everything we wanted! To Lisa for capturing the day. To the entire team at High Church for working so hard to make our day run smoothly and making the whole process so easy!

The day goes so quickly you will forget things!  The second piece of advice from both of us would be to go on your honeymoon as soon as possible. Everything else can wait, you need to spend some time with each other celebrating your marriage, and relaxing!

After meeting with Lisa, we immediately felt that Lisa knew exactly what she was doing. Her photos were a beautiful mix of candid and natural. We felt comfortable that she would capture the best parts of our day and make us feel completely at ease – which she did! 

Thank you so much Steph and Conor – I had a wonderful time capturing your beautiful wedding, you’ve got such a great bridal party, family and friends, it was my absolute pleasure.
