Don’t let the title fool you, back yard wedding this was but stunning display of shabby chic inspired by the Bride and her mum.
Rain threatened the day on several occasions, but it was the wind the was the joker on the day. The second our beautiful bride stepped onto Queens Beach at Redcliffe, the wind took it straight off and away. Re-attached the bride proceeded down the beach with her father fighting his way through the veil. As the bride said to me.. ‘it was a great ice-breaker and broke the tension’ and of course made for some great photos too!
The clouds cleared for the ceremony to reveal a gorgeous blue backdrop on the beach for the wedding ceremony, but they storm clouds reformed and the onshore wind took it up a notch once the ceremony had finished and our plans for the bridal party photos on Queens Beach changed to the back up around the headland at Scarborough.
Protected from the wind, the clouds at Scarborough made for a dramatic backdrop for the Bridal Portraits.
We soon headed back to the backyard reception held at the Bride’s Parents house. They had done a fantastic job and made the place look amazing. It was relaxed it was personal and it was fun!
It was such a privilege to photograph your wedding day Katie and Heath and I wish you all the best xx
