I’ve known Cassie since grade one, We would both cry together as our Mum’s left us for the school day ahead at Stafford Heights State Primary School. We were both budding swimming athletes always in the pool, especially once Cassie had a pool at home, many sleepovers in our Tweety inspired bedrooms took place.
As happens in life, you go to different high schools, try to stay in touch but lives head in different directions and some even move to Emerald!
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when I received a facebook message from Cassie asking me to be her Wedding photographer, I didn’t even email back, I just picked up the phone and squealed with excitement! And of course then I rang my Mum to share this awesome news, Cassie’s getting married!
Not too long later and a plane ride back to Brisbane we met over coffee and hit it off just like the good old days, sharing 15 years of catch up life tales and reminiscing on the past.
Which brings us to 26th November 2016, a mild summers days at Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. Bridal prep in the morning at Breeze Mooloolaba including more blasts from the past with two fellow Stafford Heights kiddies Jane and Ailie as maid of honour and bridesmaids, Cassie’s older sisters Rachel and Jodie, It was pretty darn special to know everyone!
A limousine to Annabella chapel, the sprinkles of rained stopped, final touches of makeup were fixed and a very proud emotional filled Dad Gary walk his stunning little girl down the aisle to the lucky groom, Mark followed with a beautiful ceremony by Lisa Parkinson.
Annabella chapel is filled with beautiful locations for photos, a lake, bridges, cute cows and a rope swing for loved up photos amongst the greenery.
Reception followed at The Lakehouse with family and friends from around the world. Speeches that had everyone in fits of laughter and the bridal party all with tissues at the ready.
It was truly a pleasure to be a part of your big day Cassie, means to world to me! To be there with your family and closest friends.
Wishing you all the happiness in the world,
