Mango Hill Farm Wedding Photograpy Sam and Jono created a truly beautiful wedding at Mango Hill Farm, Sunshine Coast. This venue provides a gorgeous natural backdrop for couples who are after a unique, fresh and stunning place to marry (it’s also an absolute favourite for wedding photography – just saying!).

Mango Hill Farm Wedding Photograpy Mango Hill Farm Wedding Photograpy Ok, so this part is really cool: Jono made this box in his shed (very handy of him!). It is a time capsule which contains a love letter from Sam to Jono and Jono to Sam to be opened on their 5th wedding anniversary. How seriously romantic is that!? They both nailed it shut – not often a hammer is a prominent feature of a ceremony of love.

Yandina Station Wedding Photography – Melika & Dan

Yandina Station is one of the most coveted Wedding Venues for couples and photographers alike! UK couple, Melika and Dan, crafted their wedding from abroad and created a unique vintage-styled day for their Australian nuptials.

As it happened the 10th of the 11th 2012 (see that – 10-11-12!) was one of the first downpours in months. Lucky for our couple, we had a few original undercover locations for their Yandina wedding photographs.

A true English Gentleman!

_MRP1772w Yes, so the ladies get to wear cool shoes and accessories, but these gents didn’t miss out on having a bit of fun. Different socks displaying a touch of colour gave more than a hint about Dan’s humour and the boys were more than happy to share in the laughs.

Immanuel Lutheran Church – Forest Sanctuary – Wedding Photography – Chloe & Kenny

Sunshine Coast Church Wedding Photographer, Matt Rowe was in high spirits for this Winter Wedding on the Sunshine Coast. Chloe and Kenny shared their vows at the beautiful Immanuel Lutheran Church with a reception at the Forest Sanctuary to follow.

Church Wedding Photographer Immanuel Lutheran Church boasts floor to ceiling windows with an elevated alter. For wedding photography it is a dream if you’re after a religious service as the light is perfect and the cross remains a central focus as you both take your vows and make your promises to one another in the presence of your friends, family and faith.

Church Wedding Photography Sunshine Coast Just loving coloured bridal shoes at the moment!

Church Wedding Photographer Reflections are one of our favourite ways to involve elements in an image. (If you follow our photography, that will be pretty obvious by now!). The Church windows created the perfect opportunity to get some action shots of the bridal party while Chloe and Kenny remained in the foreground for their super-cool wedding photographs.

Church Wedding Photographer Church Wedding Photographer Church Wedding Photographer So yes, there was a spot of the rain (hello weddings 2013!), but did this dampen the mood? Never! Little spots of reflective brilliance add another quality and dimension to wedding photography.

Church Wedding Photographer Church Wedding Photographer Chloe and Kenny are such a gorgeous couple of love birds – super sweet and super in love. It was a pleasure to photograph their wedding day.

Church Wedding Photographer Church Wedding Photographer Church Wedding Photographer We do like a bit of quirky fun on a wedding day – and while the ‘tin solider’ pose is not for everyone it can provide a little variety in your wedding photos and give you a laugh in years to come. This car timed its drive perfectly for a fun photo.

Little White Wedding Church Photographer – Melissa & Douglas

Little White Wedding Church Photographer, Matt Rowe Photography, was chomping at the bit for Melissa and Douglas’ Hinterland wedding. (I know, the expression is a little off-putting, but honestly, he was really excited!).

Having met Melissa and Douglas for their engagement session earlier in the year (click here to see it – you will be patting yourself on the back that you did; it is THAT cool!), everyone was a little more relaxed in terms of wedding photography.

Melissa and her gorgeous bridesmaids prepared in style in the Hinterland. Because Melissa is a make-up artist (Cixi make-up) she was in the zone and everyone looked divine. Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel Melissa is French, and we all know the French have some pretty romantic ways of doing things – French-kissing, eating snails.. need I go on? – well they also have a very cool wedding ritual. Ribbon cuttings have long been traditional components of European wedding ceremonies. In France, the bride might cut ribbons that have been stretched across the road/ aisle , which symbolizes the couple overcoming obstacles (Read more).

Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel-37 One very happy groom!

Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel-46 You will notice a pretty lovely lady here on the right. Meet Kari from Kari Celebrations, she is an all round legend, beautiful spirit and very genuine person (all might fine qualities to find in a celebrant).

Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel-55 As well as being a super cute little church, the Little White Wedding Church boasts two beautifully manicured acres, with an undulating slope leading down to a beautiful dam,  landscaped gardens and a boutique style orchard. It is perfect for Wedding Photography.

Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel-60 The day itself, while being the middle of winter, was actually a rainy one. Many couples would find the prospect of a rainy wedding day a little frightening, but we actually embrace whatever the day provides. You can plan almost anything and everything for a wedding except the weather. Rain is actually quite cool for fine art photography as it plays with light in so many cool ways – think about rainbows.

Matt Rowe Photography Little white wedding chapel-76 The drama of the scene intensified with a little fog and made these Fine Art Wedding Photography images complete.

Hinterland Wedding Photography – Sharelle & Partick – Engagement Session

A perfect afternoon was set for Hinterland Wedding Photographer, Matt Rowe and the gorgeous soon-to-be-wed Sharelle and Patrick.

The Sunshine Coast has so  much to offer in terms of couple’s photography. Engagement sessions are a fantastic way to bond with your wedding photographer and get a feel for how the photographic element of your wedding day will be.

Sunshine Coast engagement shoot photography Meet Sharelle and Patrick: One A-Ma-Zing couple from the big smoke who have decided to tie the knot on the spectacular Sunshine Coast – Noosa to be specific –

Sunshine Coast engagement shoot photography Early on (in fact when we met at the it’s my wedding expo in Noosa) we discussed the awesome opportunity to showcase their love and the Coast with an engagement shoot in the Hinterland – Montville to Maleny, and a wedding in Noosa

Sunshine Coast engagement shoot photography Sharelle and Patrick’s relaxed style and sense of fun made the afternoon an absolute delight.

One reason for choosing to have their pre-wedding shoot in Maleny was certainly the view. The Glasshouse Mountains (viewed from the Hinterland) are a big draw card when it comes to wedding photography and, yes, they are pretty cool.

Sunshine Coast engagement shoot photography When it comes to Fine Art Wedding Photography there is no limit to style and fun. A quirky series in an old milking shed was exactly what Patrick wanted and showcased yet another side to this adorable duo.

We just adore Maleny Botanic Gardens as a Sunshine Coast Wedding venue. We also love to photography awesome people, so it’s no doubt that Tess and Glen’s Hinterland Wedding was a blast.

Tess looked perfect with makeup by Tasleema Nigh Makeup and hair by Love and Obey Hair.

Tess and Glen are not a ‘conventional couple’ by definition. They created their day to the beat of their own drum, which resulted in a clear focus on their relationship with each other and their guests. Tess and Glen were more than happy to meet each other before their ceremony to maximise time with their guests.

Tess & Glen-59 Tess & Glen-69 Yes, the Maleny Botanic Gardens are truly spectacular for Sunshine Coast wedding photography. Tess & Glen-80 Tess & Glen-108 Tess & Glen-109 Tess & Glen-110 Tess & Glen-119 Tess & Glen-133 This shot has become one of our all-time favourites.

The Montville Village Hall is one awesome venue. It provides vintage charm for intimate wedding receptions.

All the best guys, the only regret we have is not being able to open that darn phone-booth to get the Superman shots!

Maleny Botanic Gardens – Wedding Photography – Taylor and Tristan

Maleny Botanic Gardens provided the sensational backdrop for Taylor and Tristan’s Sunshine Coast Wedding. With all their majesty the Glasshouse Mountains were certainly on display as these two love birds tied the knot.

_MRP4796

A couple with an obvious connection to nature chose Sunflowers as their floral focus.

_MRP4831

Colourful bridal shoes as quite a conscious fashion choice to maintain the theme and reflect the personalities of bride and groom (though boys tend do this with some styled-up socks!).

_MRP4929

_MRP0445-2

These are the moments life is about: Dad waiting to see his little girl ready to wed.

You can see the obvious strength of this father-daughter relationship by their emotion. Makes you warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it?

That’s what we are talking about!
