Lauren + Chris | Austinvilla Estate Wedding




Shooting Mr and Mrs Law’s wedding at Austinvilla Estate made me feel more like a guest than a vendor - that’s how relaxed and fun these two were to be around! I had to giggle when Lauren joked at our coffee date that Chris lovvved photos and his ‘colgate megawatt smile’ was something I was to look out for on the day, what I wasn’t expecting was how much of a softie this big, authorative copper was going to be! It was also one of the most emotionally charged weddings I’ve been to and Chris’s reaction to seeing Lauren walk down the aisle will probably go down in LOBRIDE history as the best ever! EVERRRR! (And once you see Lauren you’ll understand why! SHE IS GORRRGEOUSSS!)

Lauren and Chris met working at one of the happiest places on earth.. a theme park on the Gold Coast! Lauren was a guest supervisor and Chris a rides supervisor. After a few small pushes from fellow work colleagues and friends they realised this thing they had going was going to stick! A quick trip to Airlie beach and an engagement later and here we are! Not only do they share their love for the beach - so much so that when an opportunity arose to move to Yeppoon for work, they jumped on it! (And rightly so.. Google Yeppoon right now!) - but also their two fur babies, Nelson and Benson!

Being that they live away from many of their family and friends the entire wedding day was what I think weddings should be, a huge celebration but also a really good opportunity to catch up with your loved ones! Both Lauren and Chris put sooo much effort into their day.. anything that could be done DIY by Lauren was and she put her beautiful touch to everything! You’d think that with everything going on and all of her little details to be organised that she would be a mess… nope! Calm and collected. Crazy woman even had time to get a custom watch made, engraved and shipped.. which didn’t arrive until the morning of the wedding.. and she barely batted an eyelid.. what a legend! To be honest these two just made my soul happy, haha, they were that lovely to be around and I’m so glad I got to be part of it!! These are the kind of people that make me love my job!

Thank you so much Lauren and Chris, you rocked our socks off and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both!
All my love!! x
