Wedding of Emma & Michael at St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane24 Nov 2010, Posted by Weddings in
Wow, wow, wow !!!!!!
We had such a great time photographing the wedding of Emma and Michael on Saturday 20th November 2010.
Our day started out with a warm welcome from Emma’s parents when we arrived at their stunning Woolstore apartment over at Teneriffe. Emma and the girls were running a little behind schedule with their hair and makeup (can’t rush these things!) so Emma’s Mum and Dad gladly let us get cracking on photographing the dress etc while we waited for the girls to arrive. It wasn’t long before a very nervous Emma arrived with her girls and cracked out a bottle of bubbly to calm those wedding day jitters.
After we’d finalised the prep images of the lovely ladies, we headed over to St Johns Cathedral to meet up with Michael and the boys. We usually find the Groom is a bundle of nerves when we arrive (us photographers usually mean that the Bride isn’t far away) however Michael appeared to be cool, calm and collected.
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of peaking inside St Johns Cathedral, you are missing out. This Cathedral is incredible! What an amazing location to get married.
Once Emma and Michael had been announced as husband and wife and the day’s formalities were completed, it was time to head off and capture some location photos of the happy couple.
Now Emma was a very organised bride (we’re sure Michael helped too) and gave us a list of the some fantastic photo spots around Teneriffe. We were super excited after seeing the location ideas that Emma gave us and we seriously could not have been happier with the results.
We also stayed on to photograph Emma and Michael’s reception at Eve’s on the River. Everyone had fantastic time helping Emma and Michael celebrate their wedding day and I have to say, Michael’s brother gave poor old Michael a bit of a ribbing during his speech – which of course was hilarious.
We managed to also surprise Emma and Michael with a quick slideshow of the images from their special day and we certainly received some wonderful feedback. One of their guests was even screaming out “oh my god” at every image that came up and said she was going to cry. How’s that for feedback!
Emma and Michael – we truly can’t express how happy we were to have been part of your special day. You were both fantastic and its people like you guys that make our job so much fun. We’d like to wish you every happiness for the future and we look forward to catching up with you again soon.
We hope you all enjoy the sneak peak below.
