Coolangatta Surf Club
Luke and Kimberly were married on the Gold Coast in March 2018. It had actually been raining in the Gold Coast for two weeks prior to Luke and Kim’s wedding, so I could understand why Luke was a little bit nervous when I arrived at his place.

Myself, Luke and Kimberly ducked out of the reception for around 10 mintues to get some quick sunset wedding photos which turned out pretty well, despite the lack of sun.
I finished up at 9:30pm, as Luke and Kimberly opted for an 8 hour package. This allowed me to get everything from preparation to cutting of the cake and first dance.
