KATE + NICK // QUAMBY ESTATE LAUNCESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Quamby Estate Launceston Tasmania wedding

I actually started writing this blog post in my head immediately after I got back to my room at Quamby Estate where I was lucky to be staying after the wedding reception, because my head was buzzing after such a fantastic day.

I couldn’t escape the wedding, because guess who I found at the airport with me, Nick’s mum and dad, Narelle and Peter as well as Steve the videographer and his wife. Not that I minded at all as I really enjoyed spending time with both Kate & Nick’s family and friends over the weekend. It was also a good chance to catch up on what happened at the wedding after I left.  See the morning of the wedding, Nick lost his wallet which had all his credit cards. Now this was a problem because Nick needed the credit cards to take on the honeymoon which they were flying out for the very next afternoon. Anyway after phone calls and an early morning dash to the church to see if the wallet was there, all turned out and the wallet was in Kate’s car. Im bet you are all thinking, of cause it was in Kate’s car, cause us girls control the purse strings …. Haha … good news is they didn’t miss the flight to Melbourne to jump on their international flight.

I then actually started putting finger to iPhone as the plane waited on the Launceston tarmac to head back to Brisbane while the wedding and last few days were fresh in my mind.  The plane was delayed 45 minutes so gave me a good headstart on writing this post.

I’ve already blogged Kate & Nick’s lovebirds portrait session which we did 2 days before the wedding and was the first time I got to meet the couple face-to-face – check out there portrait session here. Kate & Nick both have infectious personalities, you just have to see Kate’s warm smile and I think that sums up both their families and the weekend. Yep one big warm smile!!

When I’m photographing a destination wedding, I tend to get more involved with the wedding events leading up to the wedding day, which is most definitely a privilege to have the family include you in family activities and I ended up spending the day with the family and got a good insight into Kate & Nick’s families and my heart goes out to them for treating me like one of the guests and not the hired help – thank you all!!

The day before the wedding, I met the couple at St Johns Anglican Church in Launceston for the wedding rehearsal. I took the camera along to test lighting as these big old cathedrals don’t tend to let in too much natural light and are quite dark inside and took a few snaps. Kate and Nick’s wedding was very much a family affair with Kate’s very talented friend/bridesmaid Sonja was to sing accompanied by Kate’s sister/bridesmaid Tegan’s husband Blaine singing and playing guitar during the wedding ceremony … and two songs by one of my favourite music groups Train.

After the rehearsal, I drove out to the wedding venue, Quamby Estate, to scout out the property for the wedding photos the following day. Quamby Estate is a photographer’s paradise with picturesque countryside, elegant interiors in the main house, lots of quirky little rustic corners everywhere, a golf course and even an underground cellar – how ever was I going to use all the spots I discovered. While I was there, I photographed them setting up the reception room. Kate’s sister Tegan is also a wedding florist in Brisbane, Blossom and Twine, and had organised the flowers for the Launceston wedding. There were hessian ribbons tied to chairs, lots of jars, a vintage typewriter, buckets of flowers, candles, posies of flowers, surrounded by a bedding of moss to break up the white table cloths … I do love me a table with moss!  Following the room setup, I was invited to join the family for dinner – the service at Quamby Estate was superb and the hats off to the chef as the food was amazing. Plus a funny thing happened, at the dinner I met the MC who  happened to be someone I had business dealings with some years ago in my previous life when I worked in media – shout out to Abe from Abe’s Audio.

It’s always great working with other creative people on a wedding day like Steve the videographer who had also traveled down from Brisbane and Tegan of Blossom and Twine who love what they do. While Tegan is the brides sister and had many bridesmaid duties, she also is the best Brisbane wedding florist and for someone who is new to the industry to organise flowers for an interstate wedding, did an amazing job styling the wedding reception room.  I have had the pleasure of working with Tegan several times before and highly recommend Blossom and Twine to other Brisbane brides.

What an amazing first visit I had to Launceston and the experience of meeting both Kate and Nick, and both their families who really made me feel welcome. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and see the reason why both Kate and Nick are the wonderful and kind individuals they are and make an even better couple.

This wedding was a photographers dream and ticked all my boxes {if I had such a list} from an affectionate couple, an awesome country wedding location, balloons, a brave bridal party and I use the word brave because it was a mighty cold windy Tasmanian day and they even ran for me … and something Im quite partial too, is a VW Kombi as the wedding car. With Nick growing up in sunny Brisbane and having lived there until he met Kate and moved to Launceston, the kombi was his way of bringing home to their Tasmanian wedding.

The day wasn’t even over yet – bring on the wedding reception.  The evening started with quiz time and how much the guests knew about Kate & Nick, then there were the speeches – yes there were quite a few tears but all happy tears, then it was time to hit the dance floor … Im not even going to say anything, you be the judge of how good of a time these guys had on the dance floor …

I feel very honored to be apart of capturing Kate and Nick’s love story and now can share some of their beautiful wedding day photos with you.
