Welcome to another Real Life Wedding !
Today the spotlight is on Dani & Sam’s beautiful Brisbane Wedding !
Theme if any: Simple and Elegant
Tell us how you met
I (Dani) invited a friend of mine to my 21st and because he wouldn’t know anyone I suggested that he bring a friend… that friend was Sam! Sam then did the gentlemanly thing and invited me to his 21st and the rest is history.
The proposal: After getting permission from my Dad, Sam organised a 4 day holiday away to Noosa, this trip turned out to be his planned ‘moment.’
We took a walk through the National Park, which is something we often do when in Noosa, little did I know that under Sam’s surf hat (which I paid him out for) was a gorgeous engagement ring. When we got to the top (Hell’s Gates), Sam got down on one knee and asked me to marry him… I of course said yes!!

During the ceremony, Sam had difficulty getting my ring on and Fr Gillen made the remark “You’re not resisting are you Dani, there is still time.” The whole church stopped and laughed!!!
Favourite Wedding Day moment
For Sam it was seeing Dani walk down the aisle.
For Dani it probably was walking out of the church being able to see everyone and thank them for coming.
Special thanks to
Our parents, Bridal Party, Guests and all involved for making it so special.
So what did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?
The relaxed, humorous and easy going approach to the photos. It was heaps of fun and that clearly shows in the photos, they really suit us!
