As this year’s Ballina Bridal Expo draws closer, you’ll begin to see the level of marketing activies promoting the event increase. Here is a sneak preview of the television commercial that will start gracing our screens over the coming weeks. It features imagery from three of my recent weddings as well as some shots from local photographer Suze McLeod. Congrats to all my brides that were selected for the advert. Below is a brief synopsis of each wedding.
Louise – the Face of this year’s Ballina Bridal Expo. Louise and James were married in Brisbane on the 24th September 2011. Come and meet Lousie and James at the Expo and discuss their real-life wedding experiences.
Kobie and her Grandma – Kobie and Phil were married at Ballina on the 7th January 2012. A beautiful garden ceremony and the reception all took place at the Ballina Beach Resort.
Philippa and Scott’s Bridal Party – their ceremony took place at St. Bartholomew’s in Alstonville and the reception on Philippa’s family’s property at Rous. This shot was taken amongst the Macadamias on the property.
Don’t forget the expo takes place 9am-4pm Sunday 25th March 2012… see you there!
Last week the above image was chosen to be ‘The Face’ of the 2012 Ballina Bridal Expo. This was one of my favourite bridal portraits from the wedding of Louise and James last September. During their wedding day, we had quite a bit of time between the end of the ceremony and the start of the reception, so to cool the nerves and escape the midday sun for a while, we all went to Bistrot Bistro for an hour or so. Bistrot Bistro is a gorgeous little French Bar and Restaurant in Woollongabba, Brisbane. The upper level is very elegantly styled while downstairs is quite rugged and rustic… perfect for a little variety during a shoot!
The above image was a last minute grab… almost an after-thought. As everyone was packing up and preparing to leave for the next location, I noticed some gorgeous light spilling in through the northern windows. I quickly asked Louise to take a seat near the window and managed to snap off about three frames before we had to move on. I love the image and am proud to have had it selected to be this year’s face of the expo. If you come along to the Ballina Bridal Expo this year, make sure you stop by our stand and meet Louise and James in person. It all takes place at the Ballina RSL Club on March 25th between 9:30am and 4pm. See you there!
