Hanh and Wilson got married on a wet rainy Saturday but amazingly these two wonderful people didn’t worry about the weather. They didn’t worry about rain puddles or drizzle, they didn’t worry about slightly damp runs between locations to the cars they were so gosh darn excited to be married that I think if we asked them what the weather was like they would be surprised that it wasn’t a perfect blue sky day!
Hanh surprised Wilson with a beautiful card and gift while he was getting ready. He had always wanted a pocket watch for his wedding day and when they couldn’t find one locally that they both liked he put it aside and focused on other planning for the day, Hanh searched and scoured the internet to find the one he had been lusting after and arranged for it to be delivered to him while he was getting ready.
We travelled to the Bride’s house after playing around with Wilson and getting some great shots to find a beautiful Darb dress ready for our bride along with some fun Alan Pinkus shoes beautiful Bliss Floral flowers, I knew it was going to be a good day!
After Hanh was dressed and her family had fed Steve and I so much lunch we wanted a nap 🙂 we jumped in the cars and went to the Ceremony location which was Hanh’s old school All Hollow’s. They were wed in the beautiful chapel with a fun and sincere wedding service. We then wandered about the grounds for a bit before going to a few locations before heading to the magnificent Brisbane Convention Centre’s new function rooms. The reception room was amazingly set up with help from Dream Day Weddings, the staff so attentive and the food superb.
With all these amazing details and happy couple you think it would be hard to pick a favourite part of the day wouldn’t you – well it’s not! Wilson’s speech to his bride was nothing short of an emotional roller coaster. For a man who is quiet and reserved he certainly had the majority of the guests with a tear or two. I love it when the speeches are touching, the boys especially sometimes feel silly for speaking such emotional words but I know personally I can still quote parts of Steve’s speech to me on our wedding day and I know Hanh would have a hard time forgetting Wilson’s unbelievably poetic speech. Wilson’s mum was in tears in his speech (as was his new wife and most of the guests – I only had a wet eye as I accidentally poked myself while taking a photo, I was not crying, honest!) and I have to respect a man who gets up and publicly declares who he is and his feelings for his new wife. Wilson kudos.
