After a weekend meeting couples at Maleny Manor for the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Wedding Showcase, I can’t help but share a wedding that I shot at this gorgeous location a few months ago. I’ve been meaning to share this wedding anyway. It was honestly so much fun and the couple, Gloria & Raymond, are fantastic. I loved every minute shooting this wedding. There was a lot of love at this wedding and a lot of laughter. Gloria is a dentist & Raymond a plastic surgeon and their bridal party couldn’t help but make this into a bit of fun. Turns out that even blindfolded, Gloria knows Raymond’s teeth & Raymond knows the touch of Gloria’s hand (you’ll know what I mean when you get to the photos). Maleny Manor was the perfect venue for this rainy day with an undercover area for their ceremony andd then a reception space encassed in windows, they always got to take in that view. The weather was perfect for some romantic location photos highlighting the green in the landscape and bringing out just the right amount of mist and soft light. There was something kind of gentle about the landscape that day. I thought it was much like the way Raymond is around Gloria -strong and gentle all at the same time. Tender, beautiful.
Raymond & Gloria, thank you for letting me be there as the love and laughter flowed so freely but also for letting me witness the quiet moments between you – those moments that said so much in so few words.
