Alex and Kerry's Enchanting Day at Fleay's Wildlife Park
Hello, and happy New Year!! Today, I'm beyond excited to share with you my first wedding of my 2024 wedding season - the magical union of Alex and Kerry. This wasn't just any wedding; it was a celebration that perfectly blended nature, humor, and style at the breathtaking Fleay's Wildlife Park on the Gold Coast. Every aspect of this day was meticulously crafted to create unforgettable moments.
The Ceremony: A Touch of Humor and Heart
The ceremony, curated by the incredible Lauren Maree from Lauren Maree Celebrant, was nothing short of spectacular. Lauren's vibrant personality and amazing sense of humor brought light-heartedness and joy to the occasion. Her talent for storytelling and making everyone feel included turned the ceremony into a deeply personal experience for Alex, Kerry, and all their guests.
One of the most touching elements was the gorgeous ring blessing. Lauren conducted this with such grace and sincerity, adding an extra layer of meaning to the exchange of rings. It was a beautiful testament to the couple's love and the journey they were embarking on together.
Musical Elegance by Chris Hutchison
The atmosphere was further elevated by the musical talents of Chris Hutchison Weddings. His selection created a harmonious backdrop to the day, filling the air with melodies that resonated with every moment. From the processional to the reception, his music was a perfect match for the day.
A Culinary Masterpiece
No wedding is complete without a stunning cake, and the creation by Milk and Butter Bakery was a sight to behold! The three-tiered masterpiece was not only visually captivating but also a delight to the taste buds. It was a perfect symbol of the sweet journey upon which Alex and Kerry were about to embark.
Florals and Styling by Klara's House
The visual feast continued with the on-trend florals and styling by Klara's House. Their work transformed the venue into a dreamy landscape, intertwining the natural beauty of Fleay's Wildlife Park with chic and stylish elements. The floral arrangements were a tapestry of colors and textures, setting a romantic and enchanting mood throughout the day.
Hair and Makeup Artistry by Boho Brides AU
Boho Brides AU played a crucial role in enhancing the elegance of the day. Their expertise in hair and makeup artistry ensured Alex, Kerry, and their bridal party looked stunning, complementing the day's aesthetic beautifully.
A Private Moment: Bridal Boudoir Session
In addition to the public celebrations, we also captured a more intimate side of the bride with a bridal boudoir session. These special moments are a beautiful and private keepsake for Alex and Kerry, treasured memories for their eyes only.
As a wedding photographer, capturing the essence of Alex and Kerry's wedding was a joyous challenge. From the laughter-filled ceremony to the elegant touches in decor and the lively reception, every moment was a reflection of their love and the vibrant journey ahead of them. This wedding was more than just a day; it was a celebration of love, laughter, and the start of a beautiful new chapter. I almost forget to mention, Daisy the Koala, who woke up adorably from her nap to be apart of the bride + groom portraits.
And to Alex and Kerry - thank you for letting me be a part of your incredible journey. Your wedding was a testament to the beauty and joy that love can bring into our lives.
