BRODIE + TREVOR // SAMSONVALE HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

A rustic DIY country wedding at Samsonvale Hall in Samford

Brodie & Trevor’s Samsonvale Hall wedding under the two big trees was romantic with a simple rustic theme and a gathering of two families from across the country.

Their love story had the beginnings of a fairytale as Brodie told me when describing how Trevor proposed “Trevor never does things in a traditional way and its one of his best assets! We were in the middle of moving into our first home together & i was flustered with getting everything packed when he grabbed my hands pulled me close to him and asked “do you love me?” I replied with “yes, do you love me?” And to my suprise he said…”yes, so much that i was wondering if you would marry me?” And within a blink of my eyes he was down on one knee. I was in utter shock thinking it had to be a dream but as trev looked up at me with his beaming smile, i nodded and fell into him with tears streaming down my face. It really was the start of our fairytale.”

I met Brodie & Trevor about 2 years ago when they booked me to photograph their wedding. I feel in that time, I have come to know these two in more than just in a business relationship. I’ve had the priviledge to photograph their engagement photos, a Valentine’s Day portrait session, a portrait session with Brodie and now the wedding day … and I’m pitching for the future baby and family photos too ;). As you can imagine, this wedding was a super special one for me to photograph!

I have photographed at the Samford Lakes Accommodation and Samsonvale Hall previously.  I love both these country style locations just outside of Brisbane as wedding venues.   The accommodation property offers a variety of locations in short walking distance, perfect for the both the bride and groom getting ready photos and a few options for the bridal party location shoot, from the boardwalk around the lake and the cattle farm next door. Under the trees at Samsonvale Hall is the perfect spot for a garden ceremony, well so long as you pick the right time of day and year, and the weather plays nice :). Then the quaint vintage community hall provides a homely feel for the reception, that I know Brodie & Trevor wanted for their wedding.

The day started with Trevor, the groomsmen along with his mum and dad at the cottage, before heading over to Brodie, the bridesmaids and other family members in the room overlooking the lake. There were lots of personal details and gifts. Gift giving is always one of my favourite things to photograph. The surprise on the faces, especially Brodie’s as Trevor gave her a fishing rod complete with pink fishing line so she could join him on his fishing expeditions.  Trevor didn’t come off half bad either with a watch, a framed family portrait illustration {which is my personal favourite because Brodie used the same Brisbane illustrator that was behind my logo and they also did all the wedding invitations and stationery too} and Trevor also scored a beautiful album of the photoshoot I did with Brodie.

The morning seemed to fly by and before we knew it, we were at Samsonvale Hall ready for Brodie & Trevor to make their vows to each other.  Brodie walked down the aisle on her father’s arm, he was dressed in the traditional family kilt, to Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years Part 2’. Even the local dog thought he would crash this awesome wedding, but he was polite enough to just wander through and kept on his way. The lovely Ciara from Brisbane City Celebrants was in charge of making it all official with the I-do’s.

The couple tell me their best memory from their wedding day was “Hearing one another’s vows as we wrote them to personalise the ceremony, it was a really meaningful moment for us both.“.

Following the ceremony, congratulations and family portraits, we returned to Samford Lakes Accommodation for the bridal party photos. I could photograph Brodie & Trevor over and over again, the chemistry they share is so sweet and shines through on camera.

Brodie tells me the funniest moment from her wedding day was “When my bustle broke on the dress and Trevor, the best man and the car driver were trying to jimmy a hole with a pen through her gown to make a new hole haha!“.

Then it was time to return to Samsonvale Hall to get this party started. Brodie & Trevor danced to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Tenerife Sea’ for their bridal waltz.

Brodie & Trevor honeymooned in beautiful Tasmania.

What advice would you give other bride or groom’s to-be? “Enjoy every second because it flies by faster than you’ll realise! Make sure you take 10 mins out of the wedding day with just the two of you and take it all in!“.

Anything else you would like to share about your wedding experience, other wedding suppliers or other special mentions? “We were so blessed with every single vendor we chose, everything came together more perfectly than we could have imagined. We are also so thankful for all of our loved ones who helped with the lead up, the wedding day/night and the days after, without their support we wouldn’t have been able to pull together such an amazing day!“.

Deb has fulfilled our dreams and hopes with her relaxed and bubbly personality, she was incredible from the day we met her and we really do feel so lucky to have found her! The way she captured such beautiful images is exactly the way we want to remember our day! She is so professional and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, we really cant thank her enough! Thank you thank you thank you! We have definitely found our photographer for life, we have already planned to have Deb document other major parts of our life, so bring on the babies! Haha“.
– Love Mr and Mrs Hooper
