Oh my, how beautiful was Bernadette and Jay’s wedding at Brookfield Hall in Brisbane! It was simple yet so elegant and classy. Getting married is about the love and connection between the person you love the most and celebrate this with your most other loved ones. This is exactly what this gorgeous couple did!
The plan was to have the ceremony initially outside in front of the Brookfield Hall, but luckily they had a backup plan on the day as the weather didn’t turn out as we hoped. If you have an outdoor ceremony it’s always good to have a backup plan as even though we’re living in one of the sunniest countries in the world, the weather can be quite rough at times (think of cyclones, hail and dust storm etc.)
Now, this cute couple didn’t have “love” on the cards straight away. In fact, they knew each other for a long time (about 5 years) going to the same high school together. It wasn’t until after they both graduated that their paths would cross again at a birthday party. Jay was celebrating his 18th and because they had mutual friends, Bernadette was invited too. It was a good job she came, as something must have ignited in Jay. He asked her not long after out for a date and I bet it didn’t stay with one as the rest is history…
Bernadette and Jay were the absolute bombs during their portrait/location session. Before the wedding, Bernadette and Jay kept me well informed about where they wanted photos since the location they chose wasn’t near the Hall but at the Gold Creek Reservoir nearby. This really helped with the timing and planning on the day. Another cool thing is that they took their time for these photos, which is great as these are the ones you’ll hang up in your living room in the end.
It’s so wonderful when your couple trusts you completely and let them do what you do best, it defiantly shows in the photos. Also, a big bonus was that this loved up couple couldn’t keep their hands to themselves so you could feel and see the love! On the day the weather was pretty bad in the morning but changed pretty quickly in our favour. As soon it was time to spend some time outside for group photos and the location session, the weather turned 180 degrees. Even the sun decided to show it’s facing at some stage.
It has been a while since my last blog, too busy shooting and editing images which is wonderful. I wish the young newlyweds many years of romance, happiness & fun, just like their wedding day! XxX Karin
What Bernadette & Jay think of Karisma Studios:
“Karin photographed our wedding and we couldn’t be more blown away. She was incredible from our first meeting, warm and open to our ideas and so intent on making sure she got the sense of our vision for the day. On the day of the wedding, Karin was direct, organised, and exactly what we needed in the chaos of group photos! I don’t know how she did it, but she captured incredible shots of our family, which means so much to us as that was one thing we wanted a focus on besides the big moments.
We can’t believe the quality and style of these photos and honestly are so overjoyed we chose Karin for our day as we’ve such amazing photos to remember our wedding for the rest of our lives. We got the sneak peek photos back so quickly and are so excited to see the rest. We could not recommend Karin more, and anyone who books with her will not be disappointed!“
