There is nothing like a Serbian wedding ceremony, with the folklore songs serenading of the bride at the church, the beauty of the church and the quietness, subtle movements of the priest with the couple that steeps with the solemn sacrament of marriage. The candles symbolise the perpetual light of Christ. The climax would have to be the crowning which is the sign of glory and honour. Before the couple take their first steps together the priest ties the right hands, the act signifying ‘oneness’. Once outside the heart thumping kolo dancing begins with Zlatomir and Biljana it was joined with fireworks and so so so much more...
"I believe that you make me better, I believe that you are my one. I believe that we can take on the world. Because of this and so much more, I believe I will always love you".
Josh and Ali were asked what was it that made them fall in love with each other. Ali said, "it was because of how special Josh makes me feel every day". Josh said, "I fell in love with her smile, her uncontrollable fits of laughter,I know there is nothing that could stop me from loving her for the rest of my life."
"Jade, I adore you and love you more as each day passes. I promise to always give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give. I always share with you my innermost feelings.....secrets......and dreams.
Brides are getting smarter! The one great thing about working in the wedding industry is the metamorphosis of planning your wedding venue. Long gone are the traditional wedding reception held in a hotel conference room with its up lights and white linen table cloths with white chair covers with a matching ribbon to your bridesmaid dresses. Thankfully we are seeing a huge move towards having your wedding reception in a community hall. Brides it is a blank canvas, where you can spend more money on the styling instead of the hire of the venue. Bring in your own caterers, have a burning fire pit for guests to mingle around, stay on the property. The Byron Bay wedding of Thomas and Jade was held on 400 acres at Midginbil Hill, which is an old working cattle farm with some amazing views with a country style barn. They brought in their caterer Francisco’s Table from Byron Bay. Finally your wedding day is so much more your creation when doing it this way and lets just say a lot cheaper too!
School yard sweet hearts are married at the Mudgeeraba Showground on the Gold Coast. Two teachers who fell in love at first sight and were married in front of there family and friends and an ice cream truck : )
After many years filming weddings we are very rarely surprised with new inventive way to add a different element to your wedding day, however Marnie and AJ nailed it by having a wedding ice cream truck arrive during their bridal party photo session. The couple had many children at their wedding day and once that familiar tune started playing the race was on for your favourite ensemble. A great new idea to rival the canapes!
True loves from Singapore wanted to be taken away to their own secluded island for their private wedding ceremony. They where flown to the beautiful Island Hideaway on the sandy shores of South Stradbroke Island, Gold Coast.
So from the moment we were matched on E Harmony I knew there was something special about you. Turns out Nick, you were the man of my dreams, my one true love.
Thank goodness for membership auto renewal.
The circle of love, physically and literally was Josh and Stephanies' wedding at Belongil Beach. Such a wonderful ceremony where the chairs where placed in a circle giving everyone a closeness to the couple as they said their vows.
What appears in the same amount of photos as the bride and groom? Flowers. Stephanies' wedding flowers appeared in every single photo : ) Her wedding flowers where amazing from the head piece to bridesmaids. Byron Bay wedding 'Flowers on the Run' did an amazing job. They have many years of experience in providing fresh flowers which will last longer than your Uncle on the dance floor. They only buy flowers from the local Byron Bay growers where possible which gives you such a beautiful community feel too!
"Tia, from this day forward I promise you these things. I will laugh with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow. You are my best friend and I will love and respect you always".
Best grooms arrival. Make a speed boat as your entrance to your wedding day, well jumping over the back of the boat your guests are cruising for a beach wedding at An Island Hideaway, South Stradbroke Island would be close to perfect. These grooms ripped it up with loads of jumps from the front and back of the boat. As a wedding videographer - somewhat nightmare as the boat flies past at super speed, luckily the speed boat driver did several jumps so that we did not miss a thing. Wedding Videographer Tips: The only thing to advise is that there is a bit of sea spray so make sure you have a little refresher for the boys at your wedding destination.
The cultural weddings always keep you on your toes, and the Serbian culture definitely know how to celebrate an occasion like no other. The wedding of Sasa and Mila was that occasion which demanded a major celebration of close family and friends and dancing....lots and lots and lots of dancing.
Words can not describe the atmosphere at a Serbian wedding. This Brisbane Serbian wedding did not disappoint. From the accordion playing from sunrise to sunrise, yes I meant to say sunrise again. The beautifully decorated bulkia being passed around with homemade rakija from sunrise to sunrise. Wedding decorations at the front of the bride and grooms house. A lonely apple hanging from an arbour at the brides house where the groom must retrieve the apple before he is allowed to enter the bride’s house. The fake brides which are sent out to the groom to trick him, on a side note, some of the fake brides range from a male cousin to the grandma. The bartering for the bride with huge sums of cold hard cash. With all of this happening even before the wedding ceremony, it truly is like watching an action packed movie with very attractive people having the biggest party of their lives. It must be seen to be believed.

We went on a date, had some dinner and drank some wine and seriously I knew from that point on this was one really special girl and here we are 6 years later at our wedding.

Elopement (marriage) Elopement refers to a marriage conducted in secretive fashion, usually involving a flight to a beautiful destination just what Lily and Lijiana had arranged. Held in the stylish Evergreen Garden Venue with a few selected family and friends sometimes is all you need to celebrate one of the most important days of your life.
Indian weddings are filled with rituals and celebrations that continue for several days. Jateen and Heena wanted theatrical, bollywood and rich with emotions, they definately did not disappoint.
The hidden surprises in Mark and Michelles wedding…an amazing dress…a helicopter (drone) with some spectacular shots…a groom who really wears his heart on his sleeve...The Wedding of Mark and Michelle at The Cove.
Life is a balance and Craig and Katrina have got it all worked out! Well not sure boys surfing 2 hours before the ceremony is hmmm! Not so balanced with the brides getting ready early at Fig Tree Byron Bay, but hey it has to be done.
Just love the peace and serenity of the bridal preparation house at the Byron Bay wedding venue Fig Tree Restaurant “The Diary” is nestled under the majestic fig tree with sweeping views out across Byron Bay and its big open plan living and master bedroom that allows the light to flow in, it provides the idylic location for you and your bridesmaids to get ready. There are three bedrooms with ensuites for your bridesmaids to stay the night before the wedding too : )
You know they say, in every man's life, there comes a time when you get struck by the arrow of cupid. Chris returned from work one day, sat on his lounge, removed his tie and looked at his Mum and said, "Wow, I've just met the most beautiful girl in the world".
