Britt + Patrick's Wedding at St Mary's by the Sea, Port Douglas
May was the month of Port Douglas weddings. Over 4 weddings I have visited Rex Smeal Park, St Mary's by the Sea, Little Cove, the Sugar Wharf and Salsa Bar & Grill. These are the go-to spots when getting married in Port. The great thing about every wedding was that it felt totally different from the last. The couples personality, the bridal party’s energy and the hype of the guests makes each wedding different. The only thing that remained the same was the overcast weather… Tropical North Queensland wet season hanged around a bit longer. PRO TIP - Photographers LOVE overcast weather. The light is soft, balanced and nobody is squinting from the harsh sunlight.
When I arrived at the Groom Prep I could tell Patrick was 110% ready to become a husband to Britt. We was riding a wave of emotions, both excitement and nerves, this usually happens for the guys before the ceremony. While Patrick was preparing himself emotionally for the ceremony… Britt and her bridesmaids were having a party inside their hotel room! Burgers, hot chips and champagne were being passed around. We completed the bride prep with a bridal reveal that hit everybody in the feels.
Britt and Patrick (Patch)… two of the sweetest people I have had the privilege to photograph. Their kindness and hospitality blew me away!! They even had a place at the dinner tables for me, which is a welcome rarity. When it was time for me to head off home it felt like I was saying goodbye to two close friends. The love these two have for each other is so so evident! And I’m so glad they picked me to document their epic day :D
Love from the Bride;
“We first saw Jason's work at one of the wedding expos in Cairns and thought it looked amazing! We were able to book him in for our engagement shoot and wedding. I was very nervous going into our engagement shoot (having never done anything like it) but Jason made us feel right at home in front of a camera! When we got the photos back I was in love and knew we had picked the right man for our wedding! Can honestly say I'm obsessed with our wedding photos. Can't thank Jason enough for capturing our special day and will be recommending him to everyone!”
