Brisbane Wedding Photographer: Elopement photography at the Brisbane Botanical Gardens

Simone and Joe, just minutes after tying the knot.


There’s just something so romantic about an elopement. There’s no doubt that these two people are here for each other. No pomp. No production. Just two people who want to declare their undying love and commitment.

Simone and Joe’s ceremony, officiated by celebrant Kylie Starr, was simple and sincere, witnessed only by wedding planner and stylist Sweet Petite Wedding and Elopements’ Caroline Foster and their favourite Brisbane wedding photographer, me ?.

Simone requested fun and romantic, but simple styling and Sweet Petite Weddings and Elopements certainly delivered, with white and blush elements popping against the dark green backdrop of the trees.

Simone’s pastel bouquet , a creation of Floraccasions, was the perfect accompaniment to her blush, sequined dress. Understated with a touch of glamour – it was the perfect elopement dress.

Simone and Joe were nervous about their bride and groom portraits, but when we got to it, they did wonderfully. Any newlywed couple will make a beautiful portrait just by being in that special moment together. Afterwards, Simone wrote to thank me for the photos and mentioned, “We were so nervous and you made us feel comfortable!”. I was so glad to read that! It’s so important to feel comfortable with your wedding photographer. Not just because you need it to make great images, but more importantly, because you want to enjoy every part of your day, including the portraits. This is true whether you are eloping or having the wedding of the decade. (She also said, of her wedding photography “definitely beyond happy!! Thank you”.
