Elyse + Ben



Elyse and Ben are both fairly reserved and whenever we had our meetings we spent most of the time talking about their fur babies (and mine!) - Arnie and Pablo - more than anything I think! Not that I’m complaining! Elyse told me about how Ben proposed.. he asked her to meet her in their midway built house to check on the ‘progress’ of the construction.. instead she found the entrance lined with flower petals and a nervously waiting Ben holding a huge bouquet of roses in one hand and an engagement ring in the other!

There was a few weeks this June where the rain would just not quit! I swear it poured down every weekend! When I arrived at Elyse + Ben’s house on the morning of their wedding it was drizzling and I couldn’t help but say a little prayer for the beautiful outdoor ceremony they had planned at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens in Brisbane. LUCKILY someone up there heard our prayers and the rain stayed away not only for their ceremony, initiated by Brent Jones, but also the entire afternoon, only when everyone was safely inside the reception did it pick back up again! Bloody beauty!

Elyse and Ben.. thank you so much for having us be part of your incredible day! I hope it was everything you wished for and enjoy looking back on it through my eyes!
