Q Station Wedding: Aislinn & Luke – Part 1

Recently Jeff and I had the pleasure of photographing Luke and Aislinn’s (pronounced Ash-linn) wedding day at Q Station in Manly Beach. This beautiful, classic affair and all their happy, smiling guests were a delight to capture on camera. Aislinn and Luke told us that they were more “pub food and beer” type people, but they certainly went très elegant for their wedding day! We started off the day with Aislinn and her bridesmaids. We just love the location she chose to get ready. Lots and lots of natural light spilled through the big windows making it perfect for makeup and portraits. What a beautiful home! Aislinn chose a very elegant gown with an intricately beaded bodice and gorgeous Grecian draping at the waist.

Aislinn was looking gorgeous even before her makeup and hair were complete.

The make-up artist and hairstylist (not to mention us photographers) were all loving the natural light!

Outside it was damp and grey, but the weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! Everyone was already in a celebratory mood.

Aislinn chose these beautiful suede shoes as her “something blue”, although she could almost have already ticked that box with her amazing blue eyes!

Aislinn’s bridesmaids were also looking stunning, each with their own distinct hairstyle.

The surrounds of Q Station are quite unique! Although it’s just a minute or two outside of Manly, Q Station feels like a relaxing retreat with its bushland surrounds and harbour views.

Back in the wedding suite, it was time for a quick outfit change before the ceremony!

Each of the guys had their own custom cufflinks, designed to represent their nickname! So clever! This stethoscope was for “The Doc”.

With the ties tied, jackets on, and rings ready to go… guess what was next?  The weather had failed to lift, and so the ceremony was moved to a lovely indoor space. The harbour was so choppy, we all watched as the giant ferries bobbed up and down as if in a bathtub. We were all glad we weren’t on board!

As you can see, everyone was still all smiles despite the rain!

The anticipation began to build with the ceremony just moments away. I love this shot of Aislinn and her father. What a special moment between father and daughter.
