Erin & Michael

I never get tired of the beauty of the Glasshouse Mountains and Erin  & Michael’s elegant wedding celebration highlighted the beauty of their surroundings matched only by how special their wedding day was.

Erin tells their story. “We met at high school. And first got together at the end of year 12.  We went our separate ways a number of times but always came back together. It took 12 years to finally tie the knot.”

Photographs today are by Luke Going Photography. Luke’s taken really interesting captures of Erin & Michael’s day- different perspectives, unusual moments and beautiful imagery.

Michael wore a suit from Myer with shoes he found in an op shop. His groomsmen borrowed their suits.

The bouquets and floral arrangements were styled by Wedding Flowers in Maleny.

Erin wore a strapless gown Made by Helen K- Designs of Distinction Sunshine Coast. She added Diva Peeptoes in Fuschia from Betts and Swarovski jewels. Her bridesmaids wore dresses from Review with tulle added underneath and shoes from Wittner . The girls did their own makeup and had their hair styled by Taleah from Bianca’s Hair Studio Caloundra( 07) 5491 1599.)

The wedding was held Weddings at Tiffany’s in Maleny Erin recalls “The groom arrived early for the ceremony at 3pm, but him and his mates had forgotten to have lunch. Weddings at Tiffany’s were kind enough to make him a roast beef sandwich so he didn’t pass out during the ceremony.”

Erin walked down the aisle by herself to “All I Want is You” by Barry Louis Polisar.

Erin and Michael were married by Elaine Hick ((07) 5476 3197 ) and wrote the entire ceremony themselves.

Erin describes the wedding as “A stylish, but relaxed celebration. with beautiful people in an exquisite setting.”

Of their photographer, Erin remarks, “Friendly, easy going, unique, dedicated, unobtrusive. The photos were truly amazing and better than anything we could have hoped for. The album we received really does tell a story and captures some special moments, personality and emotions. I have had a chance to go through them a few times now with different friends and family and I notice something different each time. I am pretty sure I will look back in 5, 10, 15 years etc. and remember it as clearly as I do now because of the way Luke put it together. Michael was never very keen to have a professional ‘photo session’ posing for photos whilst the rest of the reception started drinking and partying. Afterwards he said that it was much more fun and less formal than he imagined. We feel privileged that Luke has put so much time and effort into making our album and photo collection. “

The invitations and stationery were made by Erin’s mother using Cristina Re paper.

Congratulations Erin & Michael! Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us! Thank you also to Luke Going Photography for sharing today’s photographs!

    The goal is to display the personalities and even the moods of the subjects.

    The couple should discuss with the wedding photographer about their expectations, the format of
    the wedding photography, and the moments in the wedding that they want the photographer to capture.
    The switch over to professional soccer wasn’t as
    hard as I first thought it would be, the hardest part
    for me was learning the players’ tendencies on the field.
