I have been to the Botanic Gardens many times for photographs, but this was the first time I have actually shot a wedding in the gardens themselves. It was beautiful and simple and just perfect. Even the weather smiled upon us with gentle sun coming down on us.
As Emily and Matt live in the US, this wedding was a difficult to organise for them! It was also one of such joy and heartbreak that goes hand in hand with living away from parents, grandparents and other family and friends. This is one pain I know so well.
It was a delight to have Emily walk down the aisle with her Dad at the City Botanic Gardens to music of La Dolce Vita Music. The ceremony was simple but gorgeous standing amongst the beautiful surrounds of the gardens.
The reception was held at Moda Restaurant Brisbane, which again was beautifully presented. A cocktail style reception led for a casual feeling where Emily and Matt could talk and chat and enjoy the evening.
This was only a short package – 3 hours – but we managed to capture so many moments and create so many memories during that time.
