Funniest Moment

My brother’s speech at the reception. We had named all the tables after Transformers as this was something we had grown up with and loved. Matt started off his speech with the opening from the Transformers movie and somehow tied it in! Funny for those who got it although there were some blank faces.

Favourite Wedding Day moment

Seeing each other at the church for the first time. I don’t remember the walk down the aisle as Brant and I didn’t take our eyes off each other and we were both crying.

Special thanks to

Everyone who helped along the way to make it such a great day.

In your experience what did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?

After seeing all Ben’s photos we had complete confidence and trust in him capturing all the special moments of the day. Everyone said to us what a great photographer he was on the day, he always let others take their photos and was lovely to all our family and guests. It made it so much easier as we were able to let him do his thing and we didn’t have to worry. After the day the photos are what’s left to remember and Ben always captured the special moments.

Advice for other brides-to-be

Everyone always says it but the day goes so quickly! Enjoy all the lead up and make the steps along the way special too. Also take some time out with your partner before the wedding as sometimes it can get hectic and you don’t have too much time on your own.

 Cat & Brant it was a real pleasure hanging out with you guys on your special day, looking forward to seeing you when you’re back in Brissy.
