Bribie Island Wedding (...the full post)
We posted a sneak peek a week or two ago of Crystal & Kirk's wedding.. so, now we're ready to go for the full post.
Beach weddings can be risky affairs... not much room for error in the event of bad weather, thankfully though, the weather was beautiful (I was just setting you up to think it was going to be a wash out). That all said... the team at Beautiful Beach Weddings were ready to move the whole operation indoors should things have turned bad (awesome service). Alas...
Things turned out perfectly on the day. Kirk's father (and uncle) both have old British cars, which they used on the day (and seriously, check the picture out, Kirk's dad was born to be a driver) - but it went down to the wire, and thanks to some good chaps back in the United Kingdom who expressed some car parts over... were able to get the old girl (car) registered in the nick of time, for the wedding. But the luck continues...
It truly was like mother nature was out to please. Through out the ceremony dolphins could be seen playing and jumping out of the water, so close to the shoreline behind us... and as if it were to be a good omen.. an Eagle was circling overhead, and then continued to follow us for the rest of the day whilst on the bridal party shoot. It was like an episode of Dr Doo Little (though some what less chaotic).
We did most of the bridal shoot at Pacific Harbour Golf Course... which is a pretty sweet course (well, it looks good anyway... not much of a golfer myself..) it's nice to be able to shoot in the one location, but also get a good variety photos.
Kirk and Crystal's reception was one of the most emotional that we have been involved with.. and sure had its share of tears and laughter. The celebration of marriage and the celebration of the memories of those that could not be there, made it a reception that will always be special for us (and no doubt Kirk and Crystal).
Thanks for letting us being a part of your day!!
