Sweet Kingscliff Family Wedding

I hate to say it, but I think the Bride & Groom’s sweet baby girl sort of stole the show. From that sweet little smile to the “Daddy, here comes your Bride” sign, it’s one adorable moment after another, and lucky for us Angie Branch captured every last bit. More wedding gorgeousness in the gallery right here.

From The Bride…I loved every precious second of our wedding day. From the moment I stepped out for the final time as a single woman on January the 11th to leaving as a part of a married couple late that evening.

Just short of four years after that first nerve racking date at 4pm we stood in front of 90 of our closest friends and family including our precious 20 month old daughter and finally became husband and wife. Many traveled from around the globe including Richards parents, two sisters, nephew and best friend from the UK.

My extremely talented brother Brent Osborne played acoustic and sang Wonderwall by oasis (Richards favourite band) as my loving dad walked me down the isle. We took a moment during the ceremony to present our daughter Autumn with a gift. She may have been too little to remember our wedding day but the petite bracelet will forever remind her if our never ending love and devotion to her.

Our celebrant Michelle Shannon was brilliant. She instantly made us both feel comfortable and was willing to go above and beyond to ensure our ceremony was a reflection of us a couple and made sure we were 100% happy before our big day. All of our guests could not praise her enough. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

Our photographer Angie Branch was also lovely. After only a few short seconds we all felt a ease with her, it was as though we had known her for years. She was extremely patient and worked beautifully with our daughter. Our photos are simply stunning. Each and every photo is like a piece of artwork.

I wanted to go with simple flowers for myself and my bridesmaids. Eden Palace (a local supplier) did a fantastic job with putting our bouquets together. The talented mother and daughter duo also made our beautiful cake. 

The day couldn’t have been more perfect and we would both jump at any opportunity to do it all again.

From Sunshine Wedding FilmsPaula and Mike are from Minnesota and told us that when planning to elope, they decided to come to New Zealand because of our films. There was a little bit of pressure involved! They enlisted the help of a local Queenstown heli-wedding planner who helped them with all the logistics, accommodation and vendors.

Paula and Mike stayed in a beautiful, small boutique lodge in the heart of Queenstown. Scott spent the day with them from getting ready, their helicopter flight and mountain-top ceremony followed by a short film shoot by the river when they landed. The morning with them is a quiet, calm time without many people where Scott can chat and really get to know them – forming a rapport that hopefully adds to their experience and enjoyment of the day. One which also translates to the film.

The scenery around Queenstown is simply breathtaking. They were planning to land on The Ledge, Cecil Peak which is a popular spot for weddings because of the amazing views back over the town. Due to weather the ended up landing a little lower down the mountain and although it was raining for the flight, the sky cleared for their ceremony and view revealed.

The reason this wedding and wedding film is a special one for us is largely because of the feedback we had from Paula.

From The Bride… The reaction at the reception was wonderful. Tears, and laughs and a lot of “can we see it again?” or “That was amazing!” So I’ll definitely be sharing it with everyone again. It’s funny, because it occurred to me how what you do is so very special. While everyone loved the photography, the immediate reaction to a still image from a wedding like ours is “What beautiful scenery!!” As it should be. But your work is what captures the emotional element to the day and is what leaves people really understanding the relationship between us. This may seem pretty obvious, or straightforward to you both, but to give you a little insight, my family is spread all over the United States and although we’re very close, they’ve had little opportunity to get to know Mike. We’ve been spending a lot of one-on-one time with family since the elopement, and them seeing what a great guy he is and how happy we are certainly calms any nerves, but seeing the video and ‘spending the day with us’ was really the icing on the cake.

Bridal Inspired Fashion on the Sydney Coastline

Photographer Mike Larson said it best; nothing is better than a sun-drenched photo-shoot on the cliffs of an Australian beach. Unless Danae Grace Events is on the scene, that is, to make the oh-so dreamy visions really come to life. With this pair styling and shooting, a gallery visit to see all the couture looks is an absolute MUST.
