James & Bec

I first met the lovely Bec when she was a bridesmaid for her sister-in-law Phil who's wedding I photographed a few years back [check out that wedding here!]. Bec contacted me last year to let me know her and her equally lovely man were getting married this year, so of course I grabbed the opportunity to see her and the rest of the Quinlan fam and was so looking forward to their day! James and Bec were wed on a beautiful April day at The Landing at Dockside. Bec looked like she was absolutely made for the When Freddie Met Lilly dress that she wore - she looked exquisite! Venita Manning officiated their wedding beautifully, and there was nothing but smiles and happy tears during the ceremony. After the ceremony, we jetted down to near the Story Bridge for photos (WHAT A BACKDROP!), before returning to the couples gorgeous reception - welcomed by a tunnel of sparklers at dusk! [Can I just say that Sparklers at ANY time of the day are a happy event! YAY!] I had strict instructions to keep the photos down to a quick session so that the couple could return to their family and enjoy the canapĂ© hour with their people [yep, they really are THAT lovely! <3] I absolutely loved the styling of the reception - stripes are SO cool!! The couple opened their reception with a gorgeous champagne tower followed by heartwarming speeches, delicious food, and the sweetest first dance! I could not resist ending the night with some of my favourite photos of the day: the brides cousins (I think) singing "Greece Lightning" as a family unit - gotta love those traditional wedding dance-floor must-haves! Good job fam!!! [Also don't hate me for letting these images see the light of day!] James and Bec - THANK YOU so much for having me share in your day, and welcoming me back to another Quinlan wedding! What a privilege and honour to see you all again, and share in another wonderful family milestone! I hope your future is filled with further over-achieving moments, many more travelled miles, and endless towers of Champagne to share! So much love to you both! xxx
