Deannah and Jeremy’s Saturday wedding was at Buderim Golf Club with the Ceremony outdoors. After I had photographed the Groom and Bridal prep, I arrived at the golf club and met with Jeremy and his boys. The staff were busy setting everything up for the ceremony when mother nature stepped in. We had basically been in drought for months but found ourselves looking at the radar on our phones at a massive storm heading in. The last minute decision was made to go to Plan B and move the ceremony undercover. I must say I really felt for Deannah and Jeremy. They went from a gorgeous outdoor wedding to undercover. To their absolute credit they later told me that they long ago decided that no matter what happened it would not affect their big day.
So with the Ceremony hastily moved undercover and completed, the storm to the west was not moving. We made the decision reorganise the day and get the formals done as quickly as we could. With rain spitting and with the help of the family we got through the family formals at the speed of a shopping centre Christmas Santa photographer. Not ideal, but we wanted to keep everyone dry and have the beautiful backdrop of the golf course for those photos.
The plan from the get go was that we would take some golf buggies and get some creative shots around the course with the Bridal Party. After much chin scratching, looking at the radar and anxious looking to the west it was Deannah that made the decision. She said that she was now married and she didn’t care about about the storm. The worst that could happen was she would get wet. Bless her. So we all jumped in the buggies and headed down to the golf course and got some photos. All of the bridal party were a hoot and we had a great time.
The rest of the day went off without a hitch. The reception was a beautiful affair filled with love and laughs. I felt privileged to have been lucky enough to photograph their wedding and feel I have left making new friends.
