Alyssa and Robert: Brisbane wedding photography

A sweet and charming wedding in Woolloongabba, Brisbane.

The couple: Alyssa and Robert
Tell us about your proposal: (Alyssa) “Robbie proposed at a special picnic spot at Mt Coot-tha were we used to picnic when we first started dating. It was a great day – Robbie had a little camping stove to make tea, we drank champagne and ate all of my favourite pastries! Then we celebrated with dinner and a  boat ride along the river.”
What’s your wedding theme? (Alyssa) “Our wedding day was full of things that we loved and things that were made for us. We wanted the decorations to be simple so decided on lots of fresh flowers that my besties put together the day before and my mum made the sashes for the pews. We made our orders of service, keeping everything simple and our antique box was Robbie’s great grandfather’s who travelled in the 1920s. Obviously I adored my dress that my mum made.”
What was your favourite part of the day?
(Alyssa) “The walk down the aisle as husband and wife.” (Robbie) “Seeing the happy faces while signing the register”.
Do you have any advice for future brides and grooms? (Alyssa) “Just have fun. Honestly, so many people told us it’s just about you two and I didn’t believe them until the church when all I could focus on was Robbie and I. I forgot about all of my little worries, I honestly didn’t notice the decos or who was sitting where.  Secondly, make sure the celebrant knows your  name! This didn’t happen to us but a friend of mine was married to a guy called Steve throughout the ceremony and her husband’s name is George!  Lastly, don’t doubt yourself! You made the choices for a reason so stick to it!”

The wedding was at the beautiful Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Woolloongabba.
