I first met kristy about twelve months ago when she stumbled across my gallery while up here with her parents doing wedding research. I knew then that this was going to be an amazing wedding so really hoped that they would book me. They did . A year later the wedding has come and gone and I was right It really was an incredible day.
The day started with the men getting ready, a few shots of them putting on their suits and then down to Rex Smeal park for a few more, Justin and the boys were down to earth and confident, no worries here, lots of fun had by all.
Then out to Bali Hai to hang with the ladies. When I arrived the crew from Port Douglas Catering and Events were hard at work setting up for the Reception and Rachel Gregory was applying the finishing touches the girls make up. I went about my business getting some shots of Kristy’s wedding details. Bali Hai is a perfect venue to photograph in, it always has beautiful light and lots of warm timber and nice tonal and textured walls. I’ve shot quite a few weddings there now, it feels a bit like my third office ( Pretty Beach being my second )
Kristy dressed and was picture perfect, a few more pics and then back to St Mary’s by the Sea in Port Douglas for the wedding ceremony.
St Mary’s by the Sea, Port Douglas is and amazing little wedding chapel. It’s a small timber non denominational wedding ceremony machine, it get’s busy ! If your reading this and considering a sea side chapel then I definitely recommend St Mary’s by the Sea.
After the ceremony there was a flower shower, a group shot and some family portraits. Then while the rest of the guests enjoyed some bubbles by the sea, Kristy, Justin and I went for a stroll through the park for a few shots. We then gathered the bridal party and slowly made our way back to Bali Hai in Stretch Chrysler style, stopping and starting along the way for more photo’s.
Port Douglas Catering had done it again, the reception under the bamboo looked magic. Fantastic band, fire eaters and a song from the groom, what a night.
Thanks very much guys for having me along to record this all for you. Awesome.
The pic’s – Enjoy
