Honeymoon

Centura Grand Resort – Maldives

Funniest Moment

Father of the Bride Speech, ‘Pistol Pete’ joke, the dance floor antics

Favourite Wedding Day moment

The entire day – It would be hard to pick one. Even though it was absolutely huge to do everything ourselves, Pete and I would do it all again in a heart beat. The next morning we woke up and said to each other – lets get married again!

Special thanks to

Francene and Monique Ridley AND if you have built, drawn, packed, baked, sewn or stitched, cooked, played, decorated, driven, organised, printed, folded, spoken or turned up, then thank you!!

Thank you for the part you have played and are playing in celebrating the journey we are about to embark on.

What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?

Ben is unbelievable!! His eye for the ‘good picture’ is impeccable. He made that part of the day so effortless and easy. He is an absolute dude!!

We can not thank you enough Ben

Advice for other brides-to-be

Firstly – Try and find a venue that has no time curfew or a late curfew.

We didn’t have a curfew and partied till 330 in the am. We didn’t want it to end!!

Secondly – If you are willing to take it on, we highly recommend a DIY wedding. You get complete control over everything and can ensure the wedding is totally you.

Beware –  it is a big job though and you need to be organised. Definitely have someone there on the day as a co-ordinator and to ensure everything runs smoothly so you (the bride and groom) are able to relax and enjoy your day.

Thirdly – Get a live band!! A DJ will never create the same atmosphere as a live band and we suggest that you look no further then RUSH. Anyone who sounds like Michael Jackson when they perform is a legend!

Fourthly – you are obviously reading over this as you have either already had Ben photograph your wedding or are looking at him to photograph your wedding. Look no further, you’ll regret it if you do!!

Thanks Kate & (pistol) Pete for sharing your beautiful day with us !

I had a blast hanging out with you guys !

Hillstone St Lucia Wedding – Haley & Anthony

Welcome to another real life wedding !

This week Haley & Anthony have shared their awesome day with us !

Theme if any: Romantic

Tell us how you met

Our parents happen to be friends and this lead to Anthony coming over to my parent’s house to do some Electrical work. We hadn’t seen each other for a few years, but this time I suppose the timing was right and we organised a date and that was the start of it.

The proposal

We were at Sunshine Coast on holiday. Anthony asked my father for permission and then organised a picnic on a quiet beach where he proposed.

He got all dressed up which he usually doesn’t do so I thought there was something going on, but didn’t really expect a proposal.

The Details

Ceremony & Reception – Hillstone St Lucia – Gown: Sarah Seven – Wedding bands and engagement rings: Millroy Jewellers and Regency

Celebrant – Paul Vouge – Wedding Coordinator: Susannah Kerridge, Hillstone St Lucia

Hair: LivingDolls – Bridal party attire: Rodger David – Make-up: LivingDolls  Flowers: Bella Bloom Floral Designs

Stationery: The Print Fairy  Cake: Vanillapod  – Music: R3ndition – Transport: Kenzclassic

Honeymoon: Vanuatu

Funniest Moment: Best Man’s speech

Favourite Wedding Day moment: Seeing each other at the Ceremony for the first time.

What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography?

We valued Ben’s professionalism and how he was able to capture emotion from a moment.

We liked how Ben helped to put everyone at ease. This made the photos look very natural which is what we wanted.

Advice for other brides-to-be

Try to actually spend some time with each other on the night, instead of worrying about trying to talk to every guest.
