Unpredictability is one word for weddings. I arrived in Chinchilla on the Friday, the day before the wedding, and it was stinking hot. The plan to have large outdoor umbrellas to shade the bride and groom from the hot sun one day, the next day the umbrellas served to shield the bride and groom from the raindrops during their ceremony. Before we knew it, the sun was shining again. I am one of those rare people that thrives on change, so unpredictability works for me!

If any bride had the right to go all bridezilla, it was Dani. At 1pm the day before the wedding, the makeup artist cancelled on Dani. Chinchilla is a country town close to 4 hours drive from Brisbane, so it’s not like you have loads of resources to call upon. The makeup artist was coming from Toowoomba about 1.5 hours drive away too. But thankfully the amazing Stacey from Mirror Mirror Makeup Artistry in Toowoomba answered a desperate bride’s call and was luckily available on short notice. 3 cheers for Stacey!

As Chris was the first of four boys to get married in his family, we did a lot of family portraits as well as many portraits on Dani’s side too, during groom and bride prep. But to keep the blog size down so the page loads faster, I have to cut lots of photos which tends to be the portraits to leave room to focus on the story telling images, but they have been provided in the couple’s image gallery. But check out those crazy bold socks Chris and his groomsmen were wearing!

I don’t think I will ever get sick of the wedding gown in the tree photo. I know it’s becoming very cliche and even some people think it’s odd to hang a beautiful gown outside in a tree, but it looks pretty :). I love the preparation part of the day, it’s a chance to get to know who the main players are in the couple’s lives, the bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents and grandparents. It’s also the time where the bride, groom and bridal party, get use to having a photographer around documenting basically everything they do.

Dani & Chris had organised a beautiful spot on a private property beside a river for their ceremony and photoshoot. Apart from their 100 guests, we had the place all to ourselves.

It was almost as if the moment Dani and her mum walked down the aisle towards Chris, the clouds decided to release some sprinkles of rain. And as quick as the sprinkling came, it was gone again just in time for the family photos.

There were so many locations around the property I would have loved to have photographed Dani & Chris, but there is never enough time on a wedding day to indulge in such beautiful countryside before dashing off to the next location.

Our next pit stop was the Chinchilla Footy Club where Dani & Chris are heavily involved with their footy team and the location for their wedding reception. Advantages of a small country town is you know the owner of the venue and they let you in a week ahead of the wedding to setup. Big congrats to Dani & Chris and their team of helpers who transformed the footy club into what looked like the inside of a white marquee. All the DIY styling looked amazing and I love their cake sitting on top of a pile of pallets. We couldn’t leave without a bridal party photo in the grandstand.

Our next stop for photos were the grounds of Laurels, a bed and breakfast, on the outskirts of Chinchilla town centre. When doing some Google research of the property ahead of the wedding, I decided I was going to book my accommodation at Laurels. Well all I can say is if you are passing through Chinchilla, make sure you stay at Laurels. The accommodation has several quaint cabins or choose a room of the main house that open onto a big communal screened verandah filled with big comfy lounges. The grounds are photo perfect with lots of little nooks and crannies. The owners are lovely and make you feel right at home – make sure you say hello to Coco the dog too. And before we get back to the wedding, make sure you grab a delicious smoothie from the shop next door and pizza from the takeaway on the other side and you are set.

Again another location where I could have photographed for hours using up all the locations around the property, but we had a party to get too.
