{Teejay & Tegan} 29.6.13

I fell in love with this gorgeous couple as soon as I met them. Both such lovely & loveable people 🙂

Tegan & her girls got ready at the gorgeous Ridges (Southbank) What a stunning place for photos! Reception were kind enough to let us use the function level for some beautiful photos (usually you have to have your full wedding booked there to use it but my hubby used his charm)

Their ceremony & bridal photos were held at Colmslie Beach Reserve which is a gorgeous park in Murarrie.

Teejay & Tegan wanted a classic look for their wedding with mostly black and white & a touch of blue in the girls flowers and of course Tegan’s super cute blue shoes!

I have to admit I love SO many of their images.

{Ben & Candace} 6th July 2013

Ben & Candace were married in July and the weather was absolutely beautiful! It didn’t at all feel like winter 🙂

Candace & the girls got ready at her parents placed and then she married her sweetheart Ben at St Johns Anglican Church where we also had some of their bridal party photos before heading to Tygum Lagoon Park as the sun was about to set for some gorgeous golden light photos.

Candace looked gorgeous in her Allure design wedding dress & her bridesmaids in their custom designed dresses.

It was a beautiful wedding & every detail was thought of  & looked after by the very organise bride 🙂

They lived happily every after… {Sleeping Beauty}

This is one of our gorgeous fairytale/fantasy inspired photoshoots we now offer. This session was inspired by the SLEEPING BEAUTY fairytale. We loved doing this photo session with one of our most loyal clients, definitely one of our favourite shoots so far!

Also check out the amazing video my husband created – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlkXpFULXPQ

Once upon a time there lived a good king and his queen. They had no children for many years and were very sad. Then one day, the queen gave birth to a lovely baby girl and the whole kingdom was happy. There was a grand celebration and all the fairies in the kingdom were invited. But the king forgot to invite an old fairy. She came to the celebrations but was very angry. Soon it was time to gift the baby with special wishes. The good fairies wished her well and said, “May she grow to be the most beautiful girl in the world! She will sing sweetly and dance so well! She will live happily!” All the fairies blessed the baby and gave her beautiful gifts.
When it was the old fairy’s turn, she said, “When the baby is sixteen she will touch a spindle, and die!” The king and queen were shocked and begged the fairy to forgive them and take her words back but the fairy refused to do so. When the other fairies saw the king and queen crying, they said, “We cannot undo what the old fairy has spoken. But we certainly can make it different. Your child shall not die when she touches the spindle. But she will fall into a deep sleep for a hundred years. Then, a prince will come along and wake her up.” Hearing this, the king and the queen were relieved. The king forbade everyone from spinning so that the princess would never touch a spindle.

Everybody loved her. Years passed. When the princess was sixteen years old, she was walking in the woods when she saw an old lady spinning. “What is this? May I try?” she asked The old lady said, “Of course, my pretty little child!” And the princess sat down to spin. But the moment she touched the spindle, she fell to the floor in a deep slumber. The old lady took her back to the palace and the king and queen laid her on her bed and tucked her in. They were very sad and called the good fairies. The fairies felt sorry for them and cast a spell over the whole kingdom so that when the princess woke up after a hundred years, she would not be alone in the palace. Everyone, including the guards and the servants and the animals were now fast asleep. For a hundred years, they all slept soundly.
A hundred years passed. There came a prince from a far off land. He, along with his servants, went deep into the forest and crossed many rivers. Once the prince lost his way and was separated from the rest of the travellers. He came to the sleeping kingdom and was amazed. The guards, the servants, the cats and the cows were all fast asleep and snoring.2013-04-15_0017 2013-04-15_0018 2013-04-15_0019 2013-04-15_0020 2013-04-15_0021 The prince reached the palace and entered it. No one moved. The prince then found the sleeping princess. She was such a beautiful girl that the prince kissed her. By that time, a hundred years had passed by and everyone was waking up, one by one. The princess yawned and opened her eyes. She saw the prince and smiled. She asked him “Are you my prince?” He was happy to hear her speak.2013-04-15_0022 2013-04-15_0023 2013-04-15_0024 2013-04-15_0025 2013-04-15_0026 2013-04-15_0027 2013-04-15_0028 2013-04-15_0029
The prince and the princess fell in love with each other. The prince wanted to marry the princess so they went to ask for permission from their parents.
The king and the queen arranged for a royal wedding. All the clothes the bride wore were a hundred years old, but she looked beautiful. Soon, they were married and then they rode away to the prince’s kingdom far, far away.
