Mount Barney Wedding Photographer

Anne and Neil’s wedding was a simple and honest DIY affair but with plenty of care and attention brought to every detail. Rustic signs, hand crafted by Anne’s uncle, dotted the dusty roads, guided the guests from far and wide to an intimate scene under the pines.

A lone storm passed over the landscape as we set off in a 4WD for the couple’s portraits. For one perfectly timed moment, the sun emerged through a gap in the clouds, the golden glow softly backlit the couple and the spitting rain as it fell over the hills and valleys below.

“We will be married under pine trees overlooking the beautiful mountain range and dance the night away under a sea of stars.”

These were the words Anne sent us in her initial contact. Anne and Neil did indeed get married under pine trees on the family property adjacent to Mount Barney, an imposing and breathtaking mountain that forms part of Queensland’s Scenic Rim region. By nightfall the clouds had dispersed and the couple danced under a sky so clear and star-filled, one could only stand and observe in awe.

There was nothing that could dampen Anne and Neil’s mood. The imperfect was perfect as far as they were concerned. The red wine spilt on Anne’s dress as the night revelry drew to a close was just the next detail in a story of their lives they can one day laugh about.

Describing their effervescent relationship, Anne told us:

“Not a day goes by without us having a full belly laugh at each other.”

We certainly wish them many more belly laughs in the future! Thank you, Anne and Neil, for having us along on this incredible adventure with you both.
