A wedding at the City Botanic Gardens

The City Botanic Gardens is a heritage-listed botanical garden located on Alice Street, Brisbane. The grounds are surrounded by the towering cityscape of this modern metropolis and it also known as Queen’s Park for short time before its closure in 2008 due to structural issues with ageing trees that were unable withstand strong winds from tropical cyclones. Two best friends tied themselves into knots under an ancient fig tree where they got married; sounds dramatic when really two good buddies decided enough was enough!

Botanical Gardens wedding – Where is TOEby?

Sorry in house wedding joke….

This is about as close to home as it gets for me. A short hop across the Storey Bridge, over to Arise Apartments in West End for prep. Then back to the Botanical Gardens for the ceremony. My highlight of the day… After the ceremony we played a cheeky game of Chinese whispers with the bridal party. Strangely, somehow we ended up with “”an orgy in the zoo””…no idea how that happened!

The Garden Photoshoot

Then myself Luke (Photographer… boom box in tow) Katie and Tim did a lovely afternoon photoshoot around the Botanical gardens. Where “Tim the Legend “arose. Getting some wicked photos, video, some importune dancing and a smattering of affection. A stunning time of year to  be out in the Botanical gardens. Katie and Tim Smashed the photoshoot, making our job very easy

The reception was being held at the loft in West End. Frist time there for a wedding great little venue for a party! more to come…

The Wedding Teaser Trailer

I have so much great footage from the photoshoot I could have created 3 teaser trailers. But I’m saving Most of it for the highlight film…. An amazingly chilled out relaxing wedding in the heart of Brisbane city. Spending the day with two beautiful humans is always an honour and filming life’s most memorable moments

I apologies to Katie and Tim if there were expected to see lots of footage in the teaser. Sorry, but I am a lover of leaving you wanting more… ENJOY!
