Ben and Ashley – Hillstone St Lucia Wedding Photography
Ben and Ashley got married at HillStone, St Lucia in June. As a Byron Bay wedding photographer it was a refreshing change to travel to Brisbane and shoot a city wedding. Ben and Ashley both got ready at separate locations close by in the Kangaroo Point area. Once they had both got ready we separately shot both the boys and the girls in and around the heritage listed Yungaba House before heading off to the venue.
Hillstone St Lucia, is a golf course perfectly set up for weddings. Although closeby to the city centre the venue felt miles from the hustle and bustle and provided tranquil sorrounds perfect for a wedding. The ceremony took place in a discreet private garden, with celebrant Josh Withers (link to Josh’s site) rocking the crowd and kicking off the festivities as only he can. During the afternoon we were driven around the course in golf buggies finding stunning locations to shoot the bridal party and couple shots. The reception styling was absolutely incredible and included the most luxurious and decadent table styling I have witnessed as a wedding photographer. The first dance featured a dry ice spectacular and we even squeezed in a sparkler tunnel under the stars.
As well as being commissioned as Ben and Ashley’s wedding photographer I also organised and oversaw the production of their wedding video, which you can see below. Thanks to Donovan Simkin for his help with the video.
