A Currumbin Wedding - Kristy and Noah
I started the day with Robin as she photographed Kristy, her bridesmaids and her mum get ready and just as the girls were about to get dressed, I hopped in my car and set off to find Noah, his groomsmen and sons in Currumbin who were getting prepared for the ceremony.
I arrived with the boys to a slight bit of uncertainty as the normally very predictable Gold Coast weather had decided that it needed to rain and dark clouds were brewing overhead. The original plans for a beach ceremony on Currumbin Rocks were changed in favour of being guaranteed to keep dry and it was decided the ceremony would take place on the balcony of the Beach Shack instead.
It’s always tough having to make decision such as this on your day, especially when all through your planning you have a very clear vision of each and every part of the day. Kristy dreamed of being a barefoot bride and whilst she still got to walk down the aisle barefoot, it was on petals rather than sand and we could still hear the sound of waves crashing behind us... but this way no one had to worry about rain. The saving grace was that both Kristy and Noah had done well to have a strong back up plan thought through in preparation for bad weather. Any couples planning their day should always ensure they do this!
Here are some of my images of Kristy and Noah’s day, from the prep to portraits… I hope you enjoy!
