Riverfire, the ultimate celebration of this beautiful city we live in. Brisbane comes alive. Nothing beats it.
The only thing better than standing at the water’s edge, favourite drink in hand, special person by your side, watching the sky light up over the Story Bridge with all your closest mates, is starting your married life this way. A Riverfire wedding is something special. Jacinta and Douglas knew this and took full advantage, creating a wedding day that was nothing short of spectacular.
Given that this year was the “QBE Riverfire”, with the whole shebang sponsored by QBE Insurance, and QBE also happens to be Douglas’ employer, I was expecting that this might be a pretty amazing wedding. I was right.
After their ceremony at the magnificent St Stephen’s Cathedral, Jacinta and Douglas chose the perfect venue for a Riverfire wedding, holding their reception right on the Brisbane River at the stunning Stamford Plaza Hotel.
Jacinta’s dress and headpieces were a perfect mix of classicaly elegant and modern sophistication. I couldn’t help but reflect this in the images by mixing it up with some timeless, classic shots as well as doing something a little more modern in some new locations.
Thanks Jacinta and Douglas for giving me one of the best spots in Brisbane, for watching the QBE Riverfire and seeing the F111s fly our skies for the last time. Most of all, thanks for letting me be part of one of the most beautiful, memorable weddings. What a wonderful way to start your life together!

I spend most weekends capturing the memories of other families. Just a few weeks ago my nephew Kris married his high school sweetheart, Shannon. It was a great feeling knowing that this time I was capturing moments that will become part of my own family memory. It was a very special day. Even though I love to have my camera in hand on occassions like this, the wedding of someone so special to me is also something to be part of (not just observing), so Adam came along & took the lead to record the day. It was great to just be able to be a guest at a wedding, yet still join in to shoot when I want, and especially still be able to do the location shoot. I’ve posted one of the location shots at Currumbin below. It was weird though posing for Adam in the family shots! (No you won’t get to see them). Thanks Adam for capturing this day for Kris & Shannon, and for the rest of the Bell Family. Kris & Shannon, Penny & I have loved watching your love blossom. A world of shared experience is in front of you, may your love grow more through all of it.
