Engaged: Lauren + Lee in Mooloolaba

13th July 2015

“Lee and I met in 2006 on Sylvan Road Toowong at West Rugby Club. I had a group of girls wanting to play mixed touch football, so I contacted the company and asked if they could put us in touch with a group of guys who were also interested in also playing mixed touch football. They gave me a guy’s number (Dave – a friend of Lee’s) and he and I were the co-managers. We all met about five minutes before our first game and that’s where I met Lee, but it wasn’t until 2010 we actually started dating.  …

Engaged: Aislinn & Kevin

8th July 2015

Aislinn and Kevin are blissfully engaged, and they’ve had themselves a splendid photo shoot with Bonnie Jenkins at their local dog beach with their two pooches. Here is what Aislinn, the bride-to-be had to say about meeting the love of her life in Ireland…  “I met Kev in 2007 when I was living in Ireland.  I had been there six months and wasn’t really enjoying it, so I had plans to move to Edinburgh in a couple of months.  While attending my  friend’s engagement party at a local pub, I happened to spy a guy getting a drink from the bar.  I asked my…

Engaged: Casey + Andrew on Emu Mountain

22nd June 2015

Recently we published a very lovely engagement shoot atop Mount Coolum with amazing views. Another local mountain that makes a delightful setting for an engagement shoot is Emu Mountain, which resides between Coolum and Peregian. It’s an easy trek and is abundant with unruly prettiness all along the way.  Casey and Andrew live in Toowoomba, but their love of the Ocean draws them to the Sunshine Coast frequently. Andrew proposed to Casey on a visit to Coolum, and so they planned their wedding here. It made sense to have a memorable engagement shoot in their favourite place, too. Their photographer,…

Engaged: Fiona + Chris in Caloundra

14th June 2015

I love a creative, funky engagement shoot. And today we have something that can truly be considered out of the box. Fiona and Chris decided to involve another in their memento of their engagement, and my oh my is George a handsome lad! He looks perfect in every shot, almost as though he were a model. In fact he is not a model, but a full-size bi-plane.  I enjoyed that little trick I just played on you, friends, almost as much as I enjoyed these photos from Willow and Sage. ////

If you’re looking for an extra special local spot to have your engagment shoot, you can’t get more special than atop Mount Coolum.

Engaged: Penny and Nathan with Puppies!

29th April 2015

Puppies! We love puppies and love, and indeed puppy love, here at The Bride’s Tree. How gorgeous are Frankie and Archie, the French Bulldog fur babies of Penny and Nathan. So deeply adored are these pooches, that their parents phoned their photographer, Tanya, of Chesterton Smith Photography, to ask if it was alright to bring them along to their engagement shoot on the Sunshine Coast. Unsurprisingly, it was a resounding yes from Tanya!  I don’t know about you, but I adore Penny’s dress as much as this pup. Want to see more from this amazing shoot? Yes, of course you…

Engaged: Bec + Paul in the Forest

20th April 2015

When Paul took Bec to the Palazzo Versace for their sixth anniversary (swanky Paul, nicely done!), the little lady got more than she expected. The rose petals, candles and champagne were present, romancing up the joint, but the heartfelt proposal that followed took things to the next level.  Adriana Watson shot this earthy, organic engagement shoot in a local pine forest. Bec and Paul are due to wed at Spicers Clovelly later this year.  View Bec and Paul’s full engagement shoot album.

Alice in Wonderland Engagement Shoot in Buderim

14th April 2015

Of all the silly nonsense… an Alice in Wonderland themed engagement party? It seems everything it is, it isn’t, and contrarywise what it isn’t it should be. What a strange world we live in… Amy and Josh’s engagment shoot concept was born from Amy’s lifelong fascination with Alice in Wonderland. I must agree, we can all learn a lot from Lewis Carroll’s famous children’s book. Melanie McNiven helped the couple’s dream come to life with this shoot at Wirreanda Park in Buderim.  “I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I…
