I met up with Kieran + Lanise toward the start of Spring at their venue, Wingham Golf Club.
They took me on a little tour of the golf course and where they planned on having their ceremony. We got some photos in as practice and found the spots for their wedding photos. As we walked around the grass crunched under our feet, it was so hot and dry and everything brown. I distinctively remember saying “Don’t worry guys, come October it will rain for a few weeks and by December it will be beautiful and green”. So, when it got to the end of November and the entire coast was on fire with no rain in sight, I felt so guilty for pepping them up and it was still brown come their day. It honestly didn’t matter on the day, the photos turned out just as beautiful as if it was a green golf course – Lanise stole the show and the brown grass no longer an issue 😊
I arrived that morning to room no.1 where Lanise and her girls were getting ready, walked in to see that beautiful face smiling back at me, didn’t seem one bit nervous just pumped the day had arrived. Kieran getting ready in a room across from the girls with his guys. It was a bit of a laugh while the groomsmen got ready and as we were getting photos one of them noticed his pants were too long which was when the other noticed his pants were showing his socks…. I couldn’t contain my laughter while they tried to figure out what happened only to realise, they had swapped pants accidentally, not sure the photo will bring back the laughter that was shared but it’s got to be close.
Their ceremony was conducted by Emily Hickson from Love Kiss Confetti and it was full of happiness with the guests showering them with confetti to conclude. We strolled around the golf course under the fig tree and into a little shack for photos, a super fun bridal team.
The best part of the day was Lanise’ fathers’ speech. I cried, it was beautiful and straight from the heart. It was genuine and so full of love and reminded me of the amazing relationship I shared with my Dad. I loved watching them dance, both their eyes filled with tears as he gave away his little girl.
Kieran + Lanise, I have busted my butt to get these to you before I take two weeks leave, I could have written so much more about your wonderful day but I just really want you to see the photos and I’m 100% that my words cant reflect the day that was had, the photos will bring back the emotion and happiness you shared!
