Beach Bridal Shoot

So, your favorite pet happens to be a majestic horse that looks mighty fine in a gorgeous floral wreath.  It also happens to be a horse that you weren’t able to include in your Big Day.  Fear not, loves, because there is always the post-wedding bridal shoot option to make sure all is right in the world.  Think stunning images from Raconteur Photography all set against a breathtaking beach.  See it all here.

From Raconteur Photography… Luke and Carly were married just over a year ago in a beautiful ceremony at Melany on the Sunshine Coast. Unfortunately Carly couldn’t include her big baby Bacardi in the ceremony or the wedding photos. I new Carly loved her horse and when I saw she instagrammed some photos of her riding on the beach, I immediately wanted to do a styled shoot with her in her wedding dress on the beach with her horse. Carly was all for it as she never got photos of that on her wedding day, but her mother wasn’t after spending an excess of six hours hand cleaning her dress after the wedding. I think her words were “I will kill you .”  I contacted Lee of House of Serendipity Gowns Gold Coast to see if she could help and she was more than happy as she had some beautiful gowns that she wanted to showcase.

I also contacted Charlotte of Skeleton Leaf on the Gold Coast to see if she would like to do something for the horse and Carly, she had wanted to do a floral reef for a horse for a while and came up with the amazing piece. We wanted to keep the shoot simple and not overdone to reflect the beautiful location and the people within the images. Hair and make up was beautifully done by Elle of Glamamour Make Up by Elle. 

The weather on the day was not supposed to be good with storms predicted, but we traveled down to Cabarita Beach to the Pony Club across the road where we met with everyone to get ready.  Being an actual couple and not models was great for me, as I could interact with them and get the chemistry they have to flow. A storm did eventually roll through as we packed up and dashed for our cars it hammered down. I hope you love the images as much as Carly did and all of us making them.

From Tealily PhotographyChloe and Nathan had an amazing wedding and despite the summer heat, they had a day to remember surrounded by their families and closest friends. They chose vendors that helped them create a classic wedding with a twist of the 1920′s – a pastel palette with splashes of gold. To top off the fun, Chloe and Nathan had a photo booth set up with a custom golden backdrop.
