The first weekend in October found us in Ipswich for Louise & Tom's special day. Despite the dismal forecast Louise and Tom perservered with their plans and proved the power of positive thinking as the rain abated just before their ceremony at the Kholo Botanic Gardens. The emotion and passion of the day was really apparent during the ceremony and we knew at that point that we were going to get simply fabulous photos during the location shoot. We started off around the Kholo Gardens before heading down into central Ipswich and the River Heart Parklands and we actually got some wonderfully welcome sun as the day progressed :-)
The time went all too quickly before we had to head to the reception at the Metro Hotel but we took advantage of the great evening light to capture some shots around Ipswich's classic buildings. Another really fun and enjoyable day and thanks to Louise & Tom for letting us be part of it.
The last weekend in september found us up at Highfields, near Toowoomba for Jackie & Steve's special day. I'm guessing that the new Queensland Tourism slogan - "where Australia shines" was conceived before this Wedding season because once again the weather gods were out to make life tricky for us!! Jackie & Steve had chosen the Pioneer Village at Highfields for their ceremony and reception and after a really fun e-shoot earlier in the year we were all looking forward to a great day and it certainly didn't disappoint. In the end the rain actually stayed away and Jackie & Steve were able to enjoy a magical day with their friends and family amongst the historic buildings. nadine will have a video from the day on her blog soon and we'd like to say thanks to Jackie & Steve for letting us be part of their day.
