I first met Andrew and Lavinia back in 2011. We met over coffee in a cafe in Graceville and it was so nice to hear from them again in early 2012 for their wedding on October 26th.
I was once again joined by Michelle Morrison to photograph this wedding, which she enjoyed immensely, being good friends with Lavinia’s sister.
We ventured out to Pullenvale where Lavinia was getting ready and she was as cool as a cucumber during hair and make-up. So relaxed and looking forward to her big day!
It was here that we met Lavinia’s little niece and flower girl Georgia, who really didn’t want to miss out on any photo opportunity…..she was just so cute and popped up quite regularly in a lot of the shots 🙂
Lavinia’s family and the bridal party all enjoyed some lunch while we moved onto Sherwood to photograph Andrew, his groomsman and his parents.
I forgot to mention that Andrew was actually Scottish, so it was so nice to turn up and see all the men dressed in their traditional Scottish dress. There’s no doubt that their outfits added a touch of class and splendour to the photos.
Their wedding ceremony took place at Christ the King in Chelmer. Such a quaint little church and the perfect size for all their friends and family that had travelled from around the world to witness their special day. My favourite part of this ceremony was hearing the piper out the front of the church, dressed in his traditional highland attire playing the bagpipes. It was such a lovely way to begin their wedding ceremony.
We then moved onto the beautiful Laurel Ave in Chelmer for the bridal party photos.
Thanks again to Suzi at House Proud Home and Living for letting me borrow a chair for the wedding party to sit on. It was a lovely prop for the couple to rest as the sun went down behind them.
Their reception then took place at the lovely Rosewood Room at St Lucia Gold club. The room had been decorated so lovely, it was a photo opportunity not to be missed!
My favourite shot of the day would have to be when Andrew and Lavinia were holding the LOVE scrabble letters. I love the way Lavinia is scrunching up her nose and Andrew is looking straight down the barrel of the camera. It’s just one of those moments you can only catch within a single frame!
Lavinia and Andrew, I wish you all the best! It was lovely to meet you both. I wish you both a long and happy life together.
