GABRIELLE + AARON
Twenty Eighth May . Twenty Sixteen
Mackay . Queensland
A surprise wedding, the first look, UH-MAZING bridal party, epic venue, sunset ceremony, out of this world rustic|vintage decor....yup - these are just a few of my favourite things...and Gabby and Aaron had it all!
This wedding really was my dream wedding. Aaron and Gabby had me giggling with excitement from our very first meet!
The morning started with "normal" wedding preparations, hair styling, make up, a few beverages, maybe some happy tears escaped as well and some sneaky boudoir shots of Gabby. We then ventured off to a hidden location where Aaron saw his bride to be for the first time... I adore this concept and encourage couples to consider "the first look"..why??? It is all about the two of you! It is intense. It is intimate. It is emotional. It is LOVE. Aaron was certainly WOW'ed at the sight of his queen! We had a lot of laughs during our photo shoot (I swear these guys are top models secretly)!
A surprise sunset ceremony...Guests arrived at The Paxton Warehouse expecting to celebrate the engagement of this gorgeous loved up couple.... "surprise....we're tying the knot!"
The decor and planning was perfection, incorporating, dusty pinks, navy and gold... be sure to check out Gabby's brand new Wedding Hire business: Just Smitten!
I am blessed - Gabby and Aaron - thank you! What an honour!
