Brooke and Grant

March 13, 2012

On Saturday the 3rd March, I had the priviledge of photographing the wedding of Brooke and Grant.

I’d already known Grant a little for quite some time so was really excited to be part of their big day. We travelled up to Yamba early Saturday before arriving at the location of where Grant was getting ready. Fletcher and Jordan the two groomsmen made for a really fun portrait session. A while back we photographed Fletcher’s brother Myles and the two boys were such a blast then. There were heaps of really funny shots of Grant and the boys getting ready (won’t mention the odd socks). The cufflinks that Grant wore had been worn by his father on his wedding day which was pretty cool!

After the boys I went over to the house where the girls were getting ready, Brooke, Lahnee and Thea were there and we were able to get straight into the photos. After doing some of the dress hanging up and all the details we did some portraits of Brooke and the girls along with her mum and dad. Before long it was time to head to the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at the Maclean Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Grant’s father Wayne had the priviledge of delivering the marriage talk before handing over for it to be officiated. This made for a nice and personal ceremony. After the signing of the papers and the kiss it was time for everyone to congratulate the happy couple and then family photos.

We headed over to a few locations for the photo shoot, there was a cool little dirt road surrounded by trees which made for some beautiful natural light, the a really nice old house which Brooke and Grant had organised for photos too.

After our two more formal locations, it was down to the beach in Yamba for some more relaxed photos of just Brooke and Grant. Time just flew by and before we knew it, it was time for the reception.

The reception was held at the Yamba Shores Tavern, a really nice venue with plenty of space and great facilities. We don’t normally put many reception shots on the blog but the speeches were so funny we just had to show some of the reactions to them!

Thanks for letting me be part of the day, I had a really really good time! Grant had prepared a surprise honeymoon for Brooke which he kept a secret, never did find out what you had organised but I’m sure you’ll let me know when you get back!!
