Information :: Sharla Park Country Weddings & Events

Six months ago, we did a photoshoot at Country Weddings Queensland. We fell in love with the venue and the shoot was memorable for all the right reasons. Country Weddings Queensland then became Sharla Park Country Weddings & Events and, during the past 6 months, the team behind Sharla Park Country Weddings & Events (David & Kerri) invested a lot of effort into this brand new venue. It now features a pontoon jetty, silo bar, and a white marquee (with more to come!). A huge thank you to Carissa & Serena from Emunah Events for organising this shoot. Furthermore, they are responsible for the gorgeous styling and head-turning floristry. The model was lovely Ainslea Barnes and the beautiful hair & makeup was the expertise of Courtney Cusack. The stunning dresses were provided by My Bridal Centre; really enjoyed shooting these! Thank you to everyone who joined in. :)

B&W Love

At first glance, black & white photography, or perhaps more accurately 'grayscale' as images are rarely truly black & white, can appear to be boring. Outdated or nostalgic perhaps. Or less expressive. Even forgotten. Black & white photography is synonymous with descriptors such as 'raw', 'stripped back', 'honest', & 'subtle'. In some cases, 'powerful', 'exquisite', 'iconic', & 'beautiful'. In a world full of colour, it can be challenging to fully appreciate all the variants of the colour grey (found somewhere between absolute black and absolute white).

Diane Arbus once said, “I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them”. We agree with the sentiment. As post-processing is such an important element of photography, we feel that there are things nobody would see unless the images were processed in a certain style. As Georgina Green, a fellow photographer, states, "Black and white images are defined in the art sphere by their ability to convey emotion. When colour is removed from a photo, the aspects that people take for granted, such as a brick wall or a blade of grass, take on a new texture and a new presence".

We're sharing some of our recent favourite grayscale images below. Typically we deliver our full albums with some colour and some grayscale. However, feel free to let us know if you have a preference one way or another and we'll accommodate. Enjoy!

“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black & white, you photograph their souls.”

~Ted Grant

“Black & white are the colours of photography. To me, they symbolise the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

~Robert Frank

“Colour is deceptive. Black & white is interpretive.”

~Elliott Erwitt

"Colour is everything; black & white is more."

~Dominic Rouse

Lavender & Berries Wedding Inspiration at Country Weddings Queensland, Australia

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! We are thrilled to share one of our most recent shoots. The shoot took place at an exciting new wedding venue: Country Weddings Queensland. This stunning property is located on Maitland Road, Burpengary 4505. David & Kerri, the personalities behind it, are a delight to work with; their warmth and hospitality is memorable. Any couple that chooses to celebrate their big day at Country Weddings Queensland is in for a treat.

The entire team behind this shoot made the process seamless. Special mention, though, of the talented duo behind Emunah Events. Carissa & Serena are responsible for the 1) planning, 2) styling and 3) floristry! Thank you, once again, for all the hard work (mostly behind the scenes) that goes into a project of this size. It all came together perfectly - thanks to your determination and efforts - and matched our initial vision to a T! Emma Blakey & Dorrion Kroon made shooting a breeze; such a delightful couple. Finally, a big thank you to each of the businesses; we enjoyed working with all of you and your individual outstanding products/services! Looking forward to seeing each of you around in the near future.

Publication :: Becoming One

We hope everyone had a great weekend. :) We have some exciting news: we are published in Becoming One! You will find plenty of inspiration and fantastic vendors in the magazine. You can find the publication here (pages 172-187). Our feature was from this shoot: Pantone's "Parisian Pâtisserie" Palette Wedding Inspiration at Mirra in Brisbane, Australia. So proud of the teamwork that went into that shoot! Hope everyone has an enjoyable week. :)

Vow Renewal: G+C <3

Greg & Claudine renewed their vows at beautiful Newstead Park, Brisbane. When we had coffee with them initially to make sure we would both be a good fit, we were struck by how family-oriented they were. Nearly everything came back to family. They were renewing their vows as family had been unable to make their overseas wedding. They wanted the focus of the images to include candid family moments. On the day, we offered to over-deliver on time but they were concerned that they would keep family from going out and celebrating together. A truly special and lovely couple. We wish them many adventurous holidays around the world on their motorbike. The location was beautifully styled by Beach & Garden Ceremonies and we worked alongside Simply Special Events on videography. Here are just a handful of highlights from the day. <3

So proud of the teamwork that went into that shoot! Hope everyone has an enjoyable week. :)

Brisbane Weddings :: I'm Engaged! What Next?

This post was last updated: 30th of May, 2019. (We will update this post regularly as we interact with more vendors.)


If you are engaged and reading this, congratulations from us! If you live in Brisbane, we want to make your new life of wedding planning a little easier by providing you with a list of some vendors we have either worked with previously or have hired for our own events. When we were getting married, everything went smoothly more or less. Except for the flowers. We were stung. We purchased our flowers from a florist at a local market. We agreed on the types of flowers, amounts and total cost. We paid in full. All good. That is... until the day before our wedding. We went to pick up our order and the florist said that she was not providing us with anything until we paid $$$ more. Her story was that she was unable to get the flowers from her usual wholesale supplier and that she had to pass her extra costs onto us as the client. We did not believe her story then and we do not today. We paid the extra as we were in a vulnerable position (time poor). If we can help to reduce these types of incidents with personal recommendations, we will. (No, you won't find this florist in the list below!)

Furthermore, our mission statement is this: "Provide a quality, bespoke service while supporting our local community". We enjoy supporting local businesses, preferably located in and around our hometown of Brisbane, Australia. We have listed our preferences below in alphabetical order. We are keen to hear your recommendations and success stories, too! If this list takes only a little bit of stress out of your planning and helps to minimise future regrets, we have been successful. Enjoy and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Cake

When your list of honourable mentions includes a feature in Food & Wines "13 Macaron Artists You Should Be Following On Instagram" list, it doesn't really matter what our Mr&MrsAverage opinion is but Monika's cakes, cake pops and macarons are delicious and you need to experience it for yourself. Here are some pretty images to seal the deal. You can see more from a shoot we worked on together here and here.

The Sweet Society Co (specialty: defying the traditional white wedding cake with a bold modern cake - simplicity at its best!)

Diana, the warm & friendly personality behind The Sweet Society Co, is a delight to work alongside. We have been lucky enough to sample her cakes. Em highly recommends the lemon coconut and Pete highly recommends the chocolate (ask him about how it brought back childhood memories of somewhere special in Perth!). We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cake vendor and have absolutely no doubt that Diana would look after you!

Car

Roaring Twenties Vintage Wedding Car Hire

Moe & Samantha, the owners of Roaring Twenties Vintage Wedding Car Hire, are a delightful couple. Moe & Samantha are easy to work with and excellent with communication - so incredibly important when weddings can involve a lot of emails and paperwork. We recently worked with Bonnie, a pristine 1928 Chrysler, and she is memorable & full of character - just like her owners. Check out Moe & Samantha’s website here.

Catering

Platter to Plate

At Platter to Plate, lovely Rhiannon will look after you. Rhiannon puts a lot of thought into the entire grazing board experience and it is certainly reflected in the end product. The food is delicious, fresh and colourful. We have been lucky enough to enjoy Rhiannon's grazing board for lunch and it was memorable for all the right reasons. We have worked with Platter to Plate here and here.

We have worked with Sam (owner) & Jacqueline (catering planner) from Something for Catering. At the time of writing this feature (30th of May, 2019), Something for Catering has a 5-star review from 140 people on Facebook. This is amazing! It is not surprising, though, as the hard-working staff are friendly and keen to please and the food is memorable and worth telling all your friends about. Highly recommend.

We have worked with Carissa & Serena from Emunah Events and we have a couple of things to say about them. Firstly, they are a dream team. It is true that two heads are better than one; Carissa & Serena work off each other really well and bring out the best in each other. Secondly, they are determined and resilient. We have worked on a couple of tough projects together and we are yet to see anything get in their way. It is rare for weddings to go absolutely smoothly and without a hitch; you need a team that can hack it and back you all the way. You will get this AND stunning styling and floral designs from Emunah Events. We featured the team here. We did a bridal shoot together here. You will find our Parisian-inspired shoot here. Highly recommend.

Clutch by Raw Cotton. Photography by Poppy & Sage Photography.

We like to keep our recommendations as close to our hometown of Brisbane, Queensland, as possible. Raw Cotton is based in Perth, Western Australia. HOWEVER, we are so impressed with Anna's products that we simply have no choice but to include. Just some of the applications that we can think of for Anna's beautiful clutches: thoughtful gift for bridal party, suitable solution for bridesmaids to store phone, keys, etc, on the big day, and - of course - perfect for any stylish bride! We featured Anna's clutches here and here.

Copper plate by Sophia Mulheran Designs (these plates are made by hand and take more than 12 hours to complete). Photography by Poppy & Sage Photography.

We have filed this recommendation under 'gifts' but there are a couple of applications for Sophia Mulheran Designs (click here for a shoot we worked on together). Sophie, the artist behind and owner of Sophia Mulheran Designs, creates and produces beautiful & unique homeware, giftware and stationery (we interviewed Sophie here). The Sophia. brand is easy to support as the business model is both sustainable and ethical; Sophia. strives for a happier, cleaner and greener earth. Follow Sophia.'s instagram for updates on good deeds the team undertakes for causes they are passionate about (clearing rubbish, planting trees and recycling materials, to name a few of their interests).

All of the Sophia. brand products are thoughtfully executed. We worked with the copper plates (pictured) recently for a shoot (looking forward to sharing more in the coming months). Not only are these plates stunning but they are something you can use time and again after the wedding is all done and dusted! In Sophie's own words, "When it comes to weddings, I have a few unique things to offer. The first being custom-designed wedding invitations and menus to suit your flowers, style and wedding layout. I’ve also introduced wedding hire items. These include my hand-crafted copper bowls and plates, which bring a striking colour and texture to the wedding dining".

The Bridal Box Co
