Henzells Chapel Wedding
Welcome to another Real Life Wedding !
Wedding season has been crazy this year and next year is looking to be just as busy, if you’re getting married anytime in the next two years please contact us as soon as possible as dates are disappearing fast !
I wish I could blog every wedding that we shoot as they’ve all been amazing but it’s just impossible with the time required on each post, so I’m restricted to one wedding per week !
Today the spotlight is on Amy & Andrew’s beautiful Country Wedding !
Amy has taken time out from her busy schedule to give us some wedding day background !

Favourite Wedding Day moment
When Andrew finished his speech & gestured to the door, where our 10week old hand-raised orphaned lamb, Rambo, trotted in to a chorus of surprised squeals & a paparazzi of flashes!
Special thanks to
Everyone who cut, hoisted, glued, ‘poofed’ & prepared both us & the venues for the day.
In your experience what did you value most about using Ben
The patience, gentle guidance & obvious experience that kept things rolling on time AND came out beautifully in photos. Nothing was too much trouble & nothing was left out.
Advice for other brides-to-be
On the day of the wedding, give up trying to control anything & everything. Oh & potentially write your speech prior to 2.07pm.
Thanks Amy & Andrew for taking the time out on your Honey Moon to give us your wedding story ..
I had a ball with you guys and look forward to seeing you when you’re back in Brisbane Town
