Victoria Park Wedding – Bernie and Justin
Victoria Park Wedding – Bernie and Justin told me they had been looking for a wedding photographer when I first met them. They saw me with my camera at a mutual friend’s BBQ, and they asked me if I did wedding photography. I told them I did.
After exchanging mobile numbers, I met them again around 12 months prior to the big day to check out the best spots for photos. We went to the University of Queensland Medical school and saw a few sweet spots. On the wedding day, I found the Victoria Park gold course to be a very nice venue to shoot. The views towards Brisbane city and over the golf course were picturesque. The staff were very friendly but they couldn’t steal the lime light from the newly-weds.
When the reception came to a close, I drove them to Eagle Street Pier and we took a few photos with the Story Bridge in the background. There were many party goers on the streets as it was Saturday night, and nearly everyone stopped to congratulate them and take a peek at what was going on…
The rest is now history – Bernie and Justin have since become friends of ours and we invite each other for BBQ’s and pizza from time to time.

St Andrew’s uniting Church Brisbane wedding
My good friends Catja and Keane tied the knot in a beautiful St Andrew’s uniting Church Brisbane wedding. I was absolutely blown away by the lead lighting at the church, and the reception took place at the Brisbane International Hotel in Virginia.
They left their St Andrew’s Uniting Church Brisbane wedding in a shiny Rolls Royce, and man, that ride was sweet. When we arrived at the Brisbane International, I caught a glimpse of the most original wedding cake I ever saw. He is an AFL (Australian Football League) player and she is a Swedish Chef… huh, sorry I meant to say Swedish Viking. Yes, that’s absolutely accurate. But you could never tell from their wedding cake!
Although I was not the official wedding photographer (being a close friend and all) I managed to squeeze in a few shots here and there. I have included a few shots here for your enjoying pleasure.
It was a truly memorable day and it was so good to see Catja with such a big smile on her face. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH!!!

This beautiful couple had one of the most original wedding cakes I had ever seen.
It came complete with its own edible Viking and sugar coated little humans.
Maleny Manor Wedding Photos
Maleny Manor was where it was at. The green pastures, the cows, the undulating hills -personally, I think Maleny is reminiscent of the Swiss prairie at the foothills of the Jura. All you need are cowbells, a little yodelling and those fancily embroidered Lederhosen und Dirndl, and you are there!
The set up at Maleny Manor is extremely picturesque. A few magical touches make it an even more enticing destination for wedding location seekers. Vineyards, stacked wine barrels, a large pond with water feature and over water board walks are all there to make your day a proven success. Everywhere you turn, you see a new ideal spot to take those memorable wedding shots. The atmosphere is calm and serene. The only noise that could be heard (apart for the cows in the distance) were some of the wedding guests’ loud and drunken giggles. These could almost pass for yodelling.
Guests can also spend the night in this relaxing atmosphere. Imagine waking up to a view that stretches as far as the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful break taking sunrise? You can have something to remember these magical moments by if you engage Henry Gomez Photographer to take your Maleny Manor Wedding photos.
If you are looking for a spectacular European like venue that is not too distant from Brisbane, the you will cherish your Maleny Manor Wedding Photos. You will also love the drive to Maleny Manor, you will feel like you are heading to the European country side en route to a beautiful Swiss village wedding.
Maleny Manor is situated on the way to Maleny and is only 87.1 kilometres North of the Brisbane CBD on the Landsborough-Maleny road.
