The wedding of Ricky and Casey was elegant, stylish and so much fun! Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful Hillstone St Lucia, where the professional staff enabled everything to run smoothly.
There was something magical watching Casey & Ricky’s baby girl being carried down the aisle by the matron of honour and then followed by Casey with a string quartet playing Pachelbel’s Cannon. It brought a tear to my eye – I can only imagine how Ricky felt when he saw his two girls walking down the aisle. Casey looked amazing in a Brides Desire wedding gown by Wendy Sullivan.
After a very touching ceremony, I was able to capture the newlyweds amongst an avenue of beautiful Jacaranda trees, which were in bloom. We then headed to the University of Queensland to use the sandstone cloisters as a backdrop for some stunning photos and also as a retreat from the impending storm. It was such a relaxed day and even the downpour of rain did not dampen anyone’s spirits, especially Ricky and Casey’s. We even had a storm trooper walk past our photo shoot who was happy to jump in for a photo! I’m still not sure why he was there … maybe he was lost.
At the reception, the wine flowed freely and guests were treated to fine dining. The speeches were full of hilarious stories (some a little embarrassing for Ricky – haha). I laughed so much from behind the camera! With Ricky being originally from New Zealand, there was plenty of friendly Kiwi-Aussie banter throughout the day. Many of the bridal party and guests consisted of Kiwis that had flown across the Tasman to witness and celebrate Ricky and Casey becoming husband and wife.
I had such a fabulous time photographing their wedding, they are such a fun down to earth couple and I wish Ricky and Casey a fabulous future as husband and wife.
