Pelican Waters | Jenna & Adam
15 June 2017/ Wedding
Pelican Waters Golf Club
Congratulations to Jenna & Adam!! We had the most awesome time with them on their wedding day. As a bit of background, Jenna & Adam live at Mt Isa so enlisted the help of wedding planner Laurel from Platters Catering to help plan the Wedding Day of their dreams. Well this it certainly was!
We started off at the gorgeous Crowne Plaza Pelican Waters Golf Resort to photograph Adam and the guys getting ready. They were so much fun to photograph and loved the way we mucked around to ensure great candid shots. Then we went to where Jenna was getting ready in the same hotel with her bridesmaids. As we walked through the door and laid eyes on Jenna….she looked absolutely breathtaking. We took some stunning shots of her and her gorgeous bridesmaids with lots of laughing in between.
Then came the ceremony….overlooking the pond with a little bridge over it, there were those cute little sails flapping in the breeze, and then Jenna and her darling brother who walked her down the aisle. Was that dust in your eye, Adam, that you had to wipe so quickly?? Maybe. Or maybe it was that you just couldn’t believe just how stunning the love of your life is, until this very moment. Jenna & Adam had chosen a wonderful celebrant, Kerry Brandenburg, from the Sunshine Coast. Kerry was amazing! She even writes poetry especially for your ceremony to suit your lives and things that are important to you. Her poetry is completely original and comes from the heart.
So after a wonderful ceremony we moved to the large group shot and family photos. Then we took the bridal party away for some fun photographs around the golf course. We had the bridal party in fits of laughter while we captured them having fun.
Now it was time to spend some quality time with Jenna & Adam at the beach. So we left the bridal party to indulge in some refreshments with the guests while we went off to Kings Beach. As we walked down to the rocks I spotted an awesome rock pool which I knew would be fantastic for some great reflection shots. So with the aid of some extra lighting equipment we took some stunning shots of Jenna & Adam celebrating their love for each other with the roaring ocean in the background and the peaceful rock pool in the foreground. Unfortunately we actually only had about 15 minutes at the beach because of time constraints so then back to the reception we went. All the guests were excited to see Jenna & Adam enter the reception and join them in a night of fun and frivolity.
Congratulations Jenna & Adam, and thank you so much for choosing Helen McConnell Photography to capture your Wedding Day. Here is your gorgeous wedding album design so that all your family and friends can enjoy!
Love Helen xoxo
