Congratulations Leigh & Richard

I love Burleigh. Even if it rains a little, some cool things still happen – such as the rainbow that appeared on cue for Leigh and Richard for the photoshoot. Yes, very wedding I know, but cool nonetheless. This great couple were married in front of an adoring crowd of family & friends at St Andrew’s Chapel at Palmer Gold Coast (aka Robina Woods) followed by the reception at the always-amazing Oskars on Burleigh.  It was such a relaxed, fun-filled day and a very easy going relaxed bridal party too – great work everybody! It was such a pleasure for us as well to see some familiar faces from previous weddings we have to privileged enough to be a part of. (Congrats on the twins Andrew & Jasmin). The flowers and the reception styling was done by the wonderful Nikki at Style on Q. Thanks again for having us as part of your wedding day and we look forward to see you both again very, very soon. For now, enjoy and share your preview with everybody.

Congratulations Lily & Scott

Congratulations to the amazing Lily & Scott, a fabulous couple who were married at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Now, everyone loves a man in uniform, so Scott was married in his RAAF uniform and many of his colleagues wore theirs as well (who as you’ll see formed a guard of honour upon exiting the chapel). Well played boys, well played. The moving ceremony was presided over by the same priest who married Scott’s parents, so there were many laughs and many tears. Actually the tears got underway quite early after Scott arranged for some custom-made chocolates to be delivered to Lily that morning….

Congratulations Skye & Stefan

Congratulations to the wonderful Skye & Stefan, who married in front of an adoring crowd of family and friends at Ecostudio Fellini in the Gold Coast Hinterland last Saturday. After all the rain we’ve had it was so nice to see the sun shining, and the guests were able to enjoy the afternoon with canapes, drinks, garden chess and boules. Perfect! Skye looked ethereal in her vintage inspired dress, and her hair and make-up was done by the always-amazing Allure girls. Thanks so much for having us as part of your wedding day, it means a lot to us to be invited to share it with you families and see so many familiar faces.

Congratulations Alana & Brent

What do you do the day after you finish work for the year and the day before you head off to the Maldives? Get married of course! That’s exactly what Alana & Brent did last Saturday on a beautiful Gold Coast summer day surrounded by family, friends, a great bridal party and the Burleigh surf. It was a big day for Brent that’s for sure. He got a new surfboard that morning, married Alana in the afternoon and got to party all night at Point Break for the reception with Alana wearing that dress. It truly was a thing of beauty. Thank you for having us and we really look forward to seeing you both again very soon. For now, enjoy your preview and share it with the world. Best wishes, Andrew, Nicole, Lara and Cherise, Thurtell Photography.

Congratulations Sonia & Nic

Congratulations to the beautiful Sonia & the awesome Nic, a brilliant couple who were married at Emmanuel College Chapel recently in front of an adoring crowd of family and friends. Sonia looked incredible, and photographing those amazing eyes (see below!) with that fascinator was so much fun they shouldn’t be allowed to call it work. After the ceremony we spent the afternoon at The Glades, and even though the rain came, we carried on and had a lot of fun. Bridal party – you guys were great too! Thanks again for having us as part of your day, so for now please feel free to share your preview with all your family, friends and guests! Best wishes, Andrew, Nicole, Lara & Cherise.

Enjoy, and follow us on Facebook for future updates. It’s worth it. We promise.

Congratulations Libby & Tristan (and the kids!)

It was such a glorious day on North Stradbroke Island for the wedding of Libby & Tristan – even the whales came out to play. Beautiful blue skies, beautiful bride, their beautiful two children. It was the perfect combination. We had a fabulous day, and thank you both for having us as part of such a great event plus we got see an old friend or two (you know who you are!). Enjoy your preview and don’t forget to share it with all your family and friends! Best wishes, Andrew, Nicole, Lara & Cherise.

Congratulations Alesha & Tony (& Charlotte)!

There no doubt about it, if there is one thing that has the power to out-do the bride it’s a new born baby. At when that 6 week old is the couples child, it makes it even more special. That’s right, the beautiful Alesha gave birth to their stunning little daughter Charlotte just six short weeks prior to the wedding at yet here she was looking truly amazing on the day she married her man, and Charlotte’s dad, Tony. It was such a lovely thing to experience, so thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a great day. Tony and Alesha were married at Coolibah Downs. As you’ll know from previous posts, it’s a place we know well!. Alesha and Tony, enjoy your preview and don’t forget to share it with all your family and your friends. Best wishes, Andrew, Nicole, Lara & Cherise.
