I love photographing weddings in Palm Cove. Everything you need for a wedding, within an easy stroll, plus a beautiful beach overlooking Double Island, framed by iconic palm trees and those amazing sunsets. How lucky are we to live in a place like this, let alone be photographing weddings here!
Lauren and Harrisen were originally booked for their wedding in 2020, but sadly had to reschedule to 2021 along with too many other couples. I just want to hijack this blog post to say firstly how very grateful we are for the trust placed in us during these crazy times, when the world was a scary place, and we were scrambling frantically to try and come up with new options for all our couples. It was honestly a hellish time for them and for us. But we made it through by making sure we were doing everything we could to help. So many couples who didn't even know if they were going to be able to get married at all, let alone when that was going to happen, or who was going to be able to attend. Oh yes, 2020 was our least favourite year all right!
Throughout all the phone calls and chats about best options, Lauren and Harrisen remained calm. Eventually they decided to change their date and we put their wedding on hold.
Then, 24th April 2021 arrived and they were able to celebrate their wedding day in perfect style. Their brief for their photos was simply a relaxed, chill vibe, totally enjoying their day and having plenty of time to celebrate with their family and friends. Oh, and some epic Palm Cove wedding photos would be great too.
Mission accomplished. What a brilliantly chilled day, surrounded as you should be, by lots of love and hugs. And some pretty cool photos in one of my favourite locations to go with it.
Thanks again you two. It was an absolute pleasure and we wish you all the very best for your future together!
