Gold Coast Bride

The Abbey Cobakai Wedding with Nestasjja & Jai

The luxurious vibe of the Palazzo Versace kinda smacks you in the face…

Surrounded by monogrammed, well, everything, Versace forces you to leave the bride-prep stress at the door, and the result is a super-chilled session as everyone just gets on, seemingly inspired by the ambience of the prestigious suite…

Then it was off to the gorgeous The Abbey, Cobakai. Peeping its way through the clouds, we had some amazing diffused light that simply oozed itself through the open-air design… Close-knit family, and some high-spirited guests rounded-off the affair; but a close second behind the gorgeous bride for wow factor was flower-fur-baby Coco the Frenchie, snuffling about, and just being super-cute OMGoodness…

Despite a spot of rain in the air, we managed to scramble around and captured some quick-fire epic-ness down by the lake… I could have stayed there longer but the mozzies took to our bride like devilish, vampiric micro-beasties, so yeah, after a few quick setups, we skipped out and back up the hill to safer grounds!

Then came the most epic drunken-uncle speech, ever! Seriously this guy missed his calling; when the laughter subsided, it was straight into the newlyweds strutting their stuff on the ‘dance-floor’ and the party was kicking-off well as we were rolling out, so no doubt there were some sore heads the next day, and in my world, that’s a wedding well spent!

Much love, and big thanks for the memories!

Palazzo Wedding | Kassandra & Bobby

Okayyy, just putting it out there that, yep, Kassandra and Bobby are absolutely gorgeous, but if you throw in a cute-as-chips little daughter [who just so happened to be getting christened on the same day in a two-birds kinda deal], an orthodox ceremony, a styled-shoot in the forest, and then a loud-as-hell traditional dance-fest (in the glitz and glamour of the Versace ballroom, no less), then you’ve really got yourself the makings of something truly special…

Forget all the style, and charismatic flair that these guy’s seem to have in abundance; what struck me most was the fact that never have I been to a wedding were the bride and groom simply did not once stop smiling and flirting with each other – all day, and all evening long! 

I’ve mentioned that they had a traditional drummer/DJ leading the dance-action? And did I mention that this cat was loud? The spoilering legato of incensed saxaphonic runs stirred the blood to inspire something akin to a hyponotic Dionysian trance… The music was pumping, the champagne flowed, and folks came together in a most enviable celebration of love, family, and Macedonian lore.

’twas a total honour to share some time with these beautiful people…

Much love,

xx
