Mel & Ben - A Boonah Wedding

An English boy and an Australian girl. They grew up worlds apart but somehow through fate or chance or a lucky turn of a corner they met, and became close. Ben being as wise as he is, knew the weather was better down south and it's here they are making their home. And speaking of homes, where better to get married than somewhere that symbolizes home.

Mel's parents live in a stunning little spot, snuggled under the foothills of Mt French near Boonah. As Queensland country as Queensland country could be. Sounds like a perfect spot for a wedding, and was it indeedy!

The chooks and guests looked on as they made their vows. The cows moo'd and poo'd. The sun went down and the party went on...

Vanessa & Clint - as if a million voices hi-fived

"I love you"

"I know..."

If it wasn't enough that these two beautiful crazy kids are dear friends of mine and wanted me to capture their wedding, how can an unashamed, self confessed nerd like me not get all misty-eyed with lines like that. All geeks know those words are reserved for the most sacredy-of-sacred moments. Truth!

Vanessa (aka Red Devotchkin, aka Miss Perfect Pinup Australia) and Clint (aka Thirteen Seventy frontman and pedal stomping axe wielder) blend  cool and classy with tongues firmly in cheek. A romp through the Brisbane backstreets. A stop at Rocking Horse to flick through some vinyl. A sneaky kiss or three, then on to party at one of Brisbane's most beautiful and historic venues.

The force is strong with these two.

Feel it I can
