Honeymoon

1 week relaxing in the Cook Islands followed by 10 days driving around the south island of New Zealand drinking lots of wine (while Chris drives).

Funniest Moment

The father of the groom’s speech.  I was expecting him to tease Chris a bit, but I seemed to cop it more in Geoff’s speech with a couple of stories from our younger years together!

Favourite Wedding Day moment

Accidentally going to kiss Chris as soon as I walked down the aisle and forgetting we had to wait until the ‘you may now kiss the bride’ part!

Special thanks to

Everyone who helped to celebrate with us and make it such a wonderful, happy and loving time – not just the wedding day but the days before and after that were spent celebrating and seeing family as well!

What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?

It was easy!  We told Ben what we wanted and he followed through perfectly and scouted some great locations.

We barely noticed him on the day as he was so efficient and he didn’t make us do any silly wedding poses!

Advice for other brides-to-be

Don’t stress!

We kept waiting for the stressful part of wedding planning to come, but it never did!  IT certainly was a busy time organising everything, but if you choose suppliers with great reputations, it lets you sleep easy knowing they are all good at their jobs! Just enjoy the day for what it is, which is basically a big party with everyone you love in the one room who are all very happy for you!

Honeymoon: France & Italy

Favourite Wedding Day moment: Our ceremony was very emotional and absolutely perfect.

Special thanks to:

Ben for doing such an incredible job with our photo’s, Clarah for giving us a perfect ceremony, Nicola for her amazing efforts and perfect day,

Charito for her gorgeous and yummy cake, and to Julie for her absolutely stunning flowers and decorations.

We really can’t thank all of our suppliers enough. Everyone went above and beyond and we would highly recommend all of them.

What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?

One of our favorite moments from the day was off taking photos with Ben. We do not normally enjoy having our photo taken however Ben created such a relaxed and enjoyable environment that we couldn’t help but have fun.

He captured the emotion, laughter, love and happiness from the day.

Advice for other brides-to-be:

The day goes so quickly so make sure you take a few minutes out to just enjoy it.

Funniest Moment

Our best man gave the most emotion packed speech and I would definitely say that despite the fact I was crying, I was also laughing until my stomach hurt!

Favourite Wedding Day moment

It’s really hard to just pick one but I’d have to say, we wrote our own vows and saying them in front of our closest friends and family was truly special.

Special thanks to

Weddings of Noosa – I could never have planned this wedding without their guidance throughout every tiny detail.

They were absolutely incredible.

What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?

Oh geez where do I start?

From the first time I spoke with Ben I could tell he was someone who you would want to have around you on your wedding day –

I’m not a huge fan of having my photo taken and neither is my husband so having someone who could make us feel relaxed and comfortable on the day was priority.

Ben is so good at what he does, you’d be excused for thinking it was one of your friends is behind that camera lens. We had so much fun and not once did Ben put us into some contrived pose – everything was natural and relaxed which is exactly what I wanted.

Our guests loved him too!

Advice for other brides-to-be

I’m sure every bride answers the same thing to this question but it really is true what they say – The day goes SO fast so try to take a moment or two to stop and take it all in.

Emily & Dirk thank you for being absolute legends and sharing your day with us !
