Binna Burra wedding photographer

Lisa & Jimmy…what can I say about their wedding day? It was by far the most unique wedding I’ve photographed. These two incorporated their love for heavy-metal music into their wedding day, which is perfect as it was at a heavy-metal concert the two first met.

Apparently after they met Lisa was quizzing Jimmy about a band she’d heard of called ‘Bonesaw’. Seemingly amused, Jimmy said…”They’re alright”. It was only later that Jimmy’s friends told Lisa he was the lead guitarist in the band!

This pair were clearly made for each other & 5 years later became husband & wife in front of family & friends at Binnu Burra Lodge in the stunning Gold Coast hinterlands.Hand painted shoes!!!Stunning titanium rings from  The unconventional (but super-fun) bride…I just love this popular new tradition of the ‘first look’…Lisa’s advice for weddings guests is totally awesome!

Lisa says…”Leave your phone or camera in your pocket. Couples pay a lot of money for professional photographers and the last thing they want is a photo of all their guests trying to take pictures on their phones. It was wonderful to be able to look up during the ceremony and see everyone’s faces – not the back of their phones or cameras.”

‘Unplugged’ weddings are becoming hugely popular for all the reasons Lisa mentions & you’ll notice there are NO iPhones in sight in the next pic 🙂

This makes me so happy 🙂

LOVE this idea!Thanks Lisa & Jimmy for choosing me to capture your day for you. Thank you for the many, many laughs we had & for the rather ‘unique’ wedding poses you gave me. I loved every second of it!
