Jen & Brad | Bram Leigh Wedding Photography Melbourne

What can I say?  The GORGEOUS Jen & Brad…. sigh;)

I met Jen about 3 years ago when she sang at my brother’s wedding.  A surprise from my beautiful sister-in-law to her new husband instead of a speech.  Jen brought the house down.  (And I still get teary whenever I hear that Keith Urban song, although Jen sang it better!)

When Jen & Brad announced their engagement I think everyone squealed in delight!  I know I did!

Joining them on their wedding journey has been so much fun.  Alex took to his video camera once more, and I got my awesome photography buddy Mandy to help me on the day.  It was like one big happy family:)

Their wedding day was amazing.  I can’t tell you how full of love, adoration, joyful tears and (of course) fun it was.  From start to finish, it was just a day to remember.  From the bee getting symbolically trapped in Jen’s dress, to the look in Brad’s eyes every mili-second he looked at his new bride, to the party at the reception – with instruments for the guests to play along with the band!

Congratulations my beautiful friends, a wedding I’ll never, ever forget xx

Jes & Paul | Botanical Gardens Wedding Photography

 

Once, a little girl I remember; so wilful and assured,
A friend, a sister; so caring and adored
Inseparable, unbreakable;  the bond that we shared
So special, integral; It’s just how we faired
This friendship and love; is from which one builds
The understanding, the strength, the trust, the guild
For future relationships; to grow and flourish
For true love to prosper; To nurture, encourage
This once little girl; my friend for life
Is now this incredible woman; soon to be wife
to this wonderful man; Her one, her other,
Her partner forever; her equal, her lover
They share something so; many will want and envy
A love and respect for; one another, so very
undeniably real and true and raw; Built on trust and admiration,
banter, laughter and more

My heart is so happy for my
wonderful friend,
That once little girl who’s
found love til the end.
To Jessica and Paul,
if you remember each day
Just why you fell in love,
that love will undeniably stay.
May your marriage be full
of love, light, and laughter
May you grow together
May you live happily ever after.

Poem by Jenna Corcoran

Congratulations Jes & Paul!

Ebony + Michael | Williamstown Wedding Photography

Ebony and Michael met through friends and after 3 years of dating got engaged, on their anniversary at Queenscliff Beach.  This gorgeous couple were surrounded by family and close friends as they exchanged their wedding vows in front of Michael’s Uncle, Paster Allan Herman at Westgate Vineyard Church.  Together we ventured around Williamstown’s gorgeous Botanical Garden’s and of course Williamstown Peir for their wedding photography.

Their reception at 501 Receptions in Footscray was themed as an Asian Banquet due to their love of Asian cuisine, as guests were treated to course upon course of amazing food!

Their wedding had many personal touches, of course being married by Michael’s Uncle, the stationary was all made by the groom (and how fantastic does it look!?) and two of Ebony’s Bridesmaids took charge of all things beauty!

Congratulations again Ebony and Michael!

Sarah & Jay | Brisbane Wedding engagement photography

I caught up with this gorgeous couple recently in Brisbane whilst Alex & I were visiting friends to go see the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.  (Yep, I’m admitting that, we are in fact NERDS.)  I must say Sarah & Jay were very patient with me, as I was struggling a little.  I believe it was a good 35 degrees that day and HUMID!  Although I once lived in Brisbane, it always takes me a day to get used to the weather again!  Photographing them in Brisbane was really special, as this is where they met and now live.  So we choose Southbank, as the photo opportunities are endless!  All we really had planned was a quick trip around to Kangaroo Point to capture the Brisbane Skyline, which we did just before a refreshing light rainshower!

We are so looking forward to capturing your big day!  See you soon at the Werribee Mansion! xx
