What part of the day are you most excited about and why?
Chantelle: I am most excited about looking down the aisle and seeing Joel standing there waiting for me and being pronounced as officially married.
Joel: I am most excited about seeing the doors at the chapel open and seeing Channy for the first time…and my super hero cufflinks!

Chantelle kept a secret from her mum. She had stored her mum’s veil in secret for a long time and secretly wore it on her wedding day. The capture above shows the moment that mum realised. Chantelle invited us into this beautiful gesture and we even got to help with some of the stealth moves to ensure her mum didn’t find out until she walked down the ailse, “I am using my mum’s veil for our wedding but this is a surprise to her. I have managed to keep it a surprise this far and am hoping she won’t see it until I’m walking down the aisle. I have purchased a decoy veil just in case she asks or thinks I’m not wearing a veil…as a mum, she knows me well and would see right through me if I gave an excuse like not wanting to wear a veil and would want to know why! Hahaha She assumed it must have been accidentally thrown out or lost somewhere along the lines and this is the story I have let her believe. I would really like some photos of it without her knowing and may need some help in carrying this surprise out on the day.”
Matt Rowe Blog Collage 9Weddings at Tiffany’s was the perfect ceremony spot for these two love birds. The clouds and rain even held off throughout their ceremony to let us all see that divine view of the Glass House Mountains. Matt Rowe Blog Collage 10A special element of their nuptials was that Joel’s dad was their Pastor and officiated their ceremony. Matt Rowe Blog Collage 11 Matt Rowe Blog Collage 12 Matt Rowe Blog Collage 13 A Hinterland WeddingWhat defines you as a couple?
As a couple we are pretty much inseparable, there aren’t too many times when we’re apart. We are both light hearted and love enjoying each other’s company but we really struggle with making the big decisions… like, what’s for dinner! We take everything in our stride and try to make the most out of every situation with as many smiles and laughs as we can.
Above all we are really great friends, we enjoy making each other laugh and we know that we are both there for each other to provide love, support and encouragement even when we don’t need it!
