Sophie and Neil – 23 AUG 2018
Sophie and Neil were married in August of 2018 at Branell Homestead in Laidley. Laidley is a town situated in the Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland, Australia. It lies about 90 minutes west of Brisbane and about 30 minutes out of Toowoomba.
Branell Homestead is one of those old fashioned country venues. Cows roaming in paddocks, wide open fields, lakes, beautiful sunsets, what more could a wedding photographer ask for?
Both Sophie and Neil got ready for their big day at Branell Homestead as it has several lodges that can be used for accommodation. The actual house where Sophie and Neil got ready was huge, and was actually opened up for all of their guests after the ceremony so they could enjoy drinks and canapes before the reception.
Sophie and Neil had their ceremony overlooking the lake and pier, a beautiful little location that was full of character. Being a winter wedding, it was the perfect temperature and not to hot. Sophie and Neil had drinks with their guests after the ceremony for around 45 minutes, and then we started the location shoot.
We made our way around the estate to the mango trees, oak tree, lake and barn. We accomplished all these locations in around 60 minutes and managed to get some fantastic wedding photos. We managed to catch the beautiful light as the sun dipped behind the horizon as you can see in the wedding photos below.
Sophie and Neil had their reception onsite as well, allowing everybody to relax and have a few drinks. They partied on into the night, and I left after the cake cutting and first dance. I wish Sophie and Neil all the best and thank them for trusting me as their wedding photographer.
