I was super excited to be shooting my first Eagle Farm Wedding at Brisbane Racing Club for the awesome Lauren and Michael. These guys know how to have fun, so being the slightly quirky fun-loving gal I am we hit it off right away!
The preparations began at the Brisbane Marriott Hotel, before we made our way to Eagle Farm Racecourse for the ceremony and shindig that followed into the evening. Lauren and Michael wanted a relaxed day with a great vibe. There were a few important things added into the mix for their wedding, so naturally we made those happen too.
Lauren and Michael are car lovers from way back (way, way back to matchbox car days, love it), so it was a given that their newly purchased Holden Kingswood took pride of place in escorting Lauren to the ceremony. Nice touch. It got better.Lauren and Michael met over a feisty game of handball, followed by some serious totem tennis. It would have been irresponsible of me to leave that fact out, so we had some fun with it. I love shaking things up a little, so those photos are a great creative way to keep me on my toes, and Lauren and Michael get some excellent mementos of their day also. Everybody wins! The third must was for their guests to have fun. That was thoroughly taken care of by the always rad Benjamin Carlyle Celebrant, who injected the good vibes into the ceremony, and it was kept rolling by McGee Entertainment and one very delicious gelati cart, which was actually a pretty awesome combination.
Hats off to the Brisbane Racing Club staff, we were granted access to (almost) all areas, and their hospitality and yummy food was to die for. Great fun was had into the night and there were definitely some dusty partygoers as I made my way home!
