Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned, & sometimes weddings don’t either. Matt & Jess had booked in a beautiful open stone chapel surrounded by rolling, lush hills & had organised a gorgeous country-themed outdoor reception furnished with haystacks & vintage goodness. We visited all the locations, organised all the different spots we wanted to take photos in & hoped for good weather. But as much as QLD is the ‘Sunshine State’, it is also the state of floods & torrential, unexpected rain; all of a sudden the stone chapel was flooded, the roads blocked, no sunshine & definitely no outdoor country themed reception. Our plans were in vain… & yet, the best part is, that even though we didn’t get a country, rolling lush hills & stone chapel wedding, with God’s divine intervention, he provided Matt & Jess with another chapel that somehow was still available, & we got ourselves a chic rock’n'roll, 1950s, Coca-Cola lovin’, gumboots & umbrella’s in the rain wedding instead & collected memories we didn’t plan, but that we adore whole-heartedly!
I wanted to especially thank my amazing husband for being a massive help on this day – he bore the wet weather, stood in the rain for me & covered me & my cameras with umbrellas for hours on end. He’s pretty amazing :) Mostly though, this day couldn’t have turned out so beautifully without God, I have no words to describe how little control we had over the circumstances of this day, & how much God played a part in putting it all together again for us.
