Shannon and Shade, August 29th 2009

August 29th was a busy day for us here at Savvy Studios with two weddings on the books. We were fortunate enough to have the very talented pair of Katie and Matt from Shadowplay come out for the weekend to help us out. It ended up being "Boys vs Girls" with Alex and Matt heading out to Sirromet Winery for a wedding and me and Katie heading to An Island Hideaway on South Stradbroke Island.

The day started out looking a little miserable but by the time we all set out, it had cleared up completely to give us perfect weather... which was great for the island wedding as we all had to travel in water taxis to the venue.

I've never shot at An Island Hideaway before but it is a lovely venue for intimate and casual weddings with a great relaxed feel. The bridal party were well looked after by the lovely venue owner Benny (who was also the boat driver for the girls on the way to the island).

Shannon was dressed by her mother and sister and looked amazing as she was walked down the aisle by her father. Shade has the most radiant smile and he certainly lit up when he saw his bride walking towards him.

Katie and I had a great day shooting together with a few laughs along with the bridal party as you can see in this photo captured by Katie of me showing them a few images in the back of the camera.


A huge thank you goes out to Katie for coming along for the day and capturing some truly amazing photos and and even bigger congratulations to Shannon and Shade on your marriage. All the best for your future together and I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek slideshow.
