Gold Coast Wedding Photography

Saturday 10 November 2012 was always going to be a popular wedding date,  who could forget 10.11.12 :)

When Theresa and Derick first came to meet us,  we knew their wedding day would be epic.  They knew exactly what they wanted and Theresa was leaving no stone unturned when it came to organising her big day.

At first these guys had booked us for the 3 November as unfortunately their dream venue had already been booked.  Its amazing how early venues (and us photographers) book out so planning your wedding years in advance isn’t as crazy as it seems!

A month or two after catching up with us,  Theresa was so excited to inform us that their venue was now available on 10/11/12 and we quickly locked in their new date. Luckily we were still available too :)

We see all types of weddings from stunning intimate gatherings to amazing extravagant affairs.  Theresa and Derick’s wedding day would definitely fit in the “amazing extravagant affair” category.

Having a bridal party of 16 (our biggest yet) we knew these guys were going to be super fun and boy did we have a fantastic day….even the rain didn’t stop us!

After leaving home super early,  we arrived at the Radisson Resort to set up our gear for the night’s special treat….a reception slideshow.  Theresa and Derick had a massive room for their reception and we were really excited to see the enormous screens which would be displaying their gorgeous wedding photos later that night.

Theresa and Derick were both getting ready at the Radisson so we kick started our day with capturing images of the boys as they were getting ready for the big event.  The boys were all chilling out when we arrived (as boys usually do) and Derick was pretty cool, calm and collected.

As for the girls,  now that was a different story.  Having 8 ladies to get ready for a 12:30pm ceremony meant that the girls had to get up at the crack of dawn.  It was activity central in the girls room and I think they started at 5:30am.  That’s crazy :)

While the ladies were finishing off with their final touches,  we got busy capturing images of Theresa’s details and her stunning wedding gown.  Once Theresa’s hair and makeup was finalised,  it was time to get our gorgeous bride into her wedding dress.  Theresa truly looked amazing….such a beautiful bride.

The time had finally come for us to head off to Theresa and Derick’s ceremony which was being held at St Augustine’s Catholic Church in Coolangatta.  This church is amazing and the ceremony photos were really beautiful.

Following the ceremony and some quick family photos inside the Church,  we all headed outside (it was only slightly raining) and watched Theresa and Derick release some beautiful white doves.  It was a really nice end to the service.

Now it was time for some fun in the sun…..or the rain as it was. Having read the weather forecast for the day,  we came prepared with our big black umbrellas as we knew we’d get a little bit wet on our location photos.  Although it was raining, it was mostly only a light shower here and there.  Rainy overcast days actually make for some pretty awesome photos.

Theresa, Derick and their bridal party didn’t let the rain ruin their fun.  Thanks so much for being good sports guys :) We had these guys climbing up the side of hills and up unto concrete walls (where massive waves were crashing onto rocks just metres away).

We also had the pleasure of working with Scott and Gabriel from ST Videography.  These guys were great fun on the day and we’d certainly recommend them if you’re looking for videographers for your big day.  After having some car trouble,  Scott and Gabrielle jumped in our car so we all got to know each other pretty well.  Looking forward to working with you guys again in the future!

Our location photo adventure finished up with some gorgeous shots at the Gold Coast Botanic Gardens.  This was a really great little spot and certainly somewhere we’ll be visiting again.

So it was time to head back to the Radisson Resort and allow our bridal party some time to relax and get ready for their reception introduction.  We had around 30mins before the couple were being introduced and when we walked into the reception room,  we were blown away with our gorgeous it looked.  The team at the Radisson had done an amazing job….definitely one of the most beautiful venues we’ve seen.

Theresa and Derick were certainly treating their guests to an awesome night and they kicked it off with a 7 piece Latin Band and Salsa dancing lessons for their guests.  How awesome is that :)

We see all sorts of reception introductions and the award for the 2012 best wedding reception introduction has to go to these guys.  Each of the bridal party couples got “a little jiggy with it” and did a funky little dance as they walked in. The crowd was in stitches (including the photographers and videographers) and it was so much fun to watch.  Well done guys!

We all had a massive night celebrating Theresa and Derick’s wedding and we’d like to thank everyone for the round of applause that followed the reception slideshow which showcased some of our handy work from the day.  We were truly touched and have to say that these guys made our job that much easier :)

To Theresa and Derick….Tina and I would like to say a massive thanks for allowing us to be part of your wedding.  We are always humbled that people entrust us with capturing their wedding day memories and it means the world to us to be part of this special day in people’s lives.  We truly had a great day and we hope that you love your images as much as we do.

All the best for a fun and healthy future together.
