A family affair – Flaxton Gardens wedding photography
Ultimately family is with us from the beginning of our time, throughout the laughs and falls and there with us at the end. Family (as a concept and in reality) is dynamic: it grows and changes. Within a wedding family, along with friends, support and celebrate each couple as they connect, enhance and enrich this ever-changing family unit. Sue and Peter’s Flaxton Gardens Wedding certainly championed the full importance of family.
In our pre-wedding photography discussions, Sue did specify that she wanted lots of photos of Peter waiting, waiting, waiting… but the day before she said there was no chance she would be late as she just wanted to be there with him and get married. There is always a heart-pounding urgency in the emotion of love xox
Kathy a.k.a The Sunshine Coast Celebrant adores working with couples that are open to ideas, creative and have a genuine desire not just for a big event but more to just simply be married to their best friends.
In-line skaters, Sue and Peter, enjoying their life together and with their grandchildren. Flaxton Gardens is always beautiful due to the inspiring backdrop and architectural features throughout the venue. Built and cared for with love, Flaxton Gardens remains a top choice for Sunshine Coast weddings.
Now if it isn’t obvious that grandchildren are a huge party of this celebration then it will be soon! Flaxton Gardens is just a little bit of candy for the creative eye. With so many beautiful vantage points in the one location, it is both stunning and convenient for couples who want beautiful wedding memories captured in art and desire to maximise time with their guests without location travel. Double points!
Often people wonder what young children will find to occupy themselves at a formal event. The answer is quite simple: each-other, games, food and technology. We just love the series of photos of all the children as they are allowed to entertain themselves in a myriad of ways.

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. 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).
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).
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.
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.
While Melissa and Douglas were out on their wedding shoot the rest of the wedding party had their turn to show their best looks :). What a fun bunch of people! (Thanks to Karena for second shooting these bridal party images)
A dance of love to celebrate the day, the ritual and of course the love at the ever-spectacular Flaxton Gardens

We just love a couple who know what they want! Jessica and Matt married at the ever-beautiful Flaxton Gardens on the Sunshine Coast. For a wedding photographer, Flaxton Gardens hosts many great benefits in addition to the awesome view. Though the weather was a little dreary Jessica looked divine and certainly brought a sparkle to Matt’s eyes when he saw her for the first time. Just got to love a ‘brollie’ – especially such an elegant one! The rain did clear just enough to capture some beautiful moments, interrupt a heard of cattle (yes, that’s right!), and create some true life art.You’ve got to agree that the moment below is a stunner. We were so very happy and impressed that this image remains Jessica and Matt’s favourite (ours too). Therein lies the importance of sharing a vision and choosing the photographer whose style is going to be one reciprocated in your plans and desires – and beautifully on your wall to greet you each day!
