Cedar Creek Lodges ~ Tamborine Mountain Wedding Photographer
Hannah + Liam
Hannah + Liam chose the gorgeous Cedar Creek Lodges for their special day, with its intimate charm and moody nighttime Island Glade, stunning backdrops with nature at its best, it was the perfect setting for their wedding.
We were lucky enough to Photograph and Film their day capturing all of their special moments, with a Bride that had such unique style and a dress to die for, to a collection of odd socks and much more, it was beautiful from start to finish.
We absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous Bride, her hair choice created by the fabulous Di from Di’s Hair Design, her unique jewellery and gorgeous shoes, but honestly her dress from Chic Nostalgia was just so perfectly made for her and so so gorgeous!
This venue, hidden in its Tamborine Mountain valley, surrounded by lush rainforest and babbling creeks is just so picturesque! It does lose light early so timing is everything and having a photographer that knows the spots is definitely helpful.
“Our experience with Niki D Photography and Film was wonderful! Niki, Nicole and Sean were all fantastic to work with. Besides that, they were open to ideas and quick to find solutions to any problems that arose. It’s such a valuable skill to be flexible, and I can’t imagine it the day would’ve gone as smooth if they weren’t! We certainly had no idea what we were doing, and in terms of a timeline… we didn’t really have one, so we feel very blessed to have had them there.”
My advice to brides is to remember, first and foremost, that you know yourself best. There is lots of great advice out there, and you hear a lot of the same stuff, like slow down and enjoy the moments, but that is hard to do when you’re trying to mould yourself into some perfect image! For example, when I’m excited and nervous, I get lots of energy and can’t sit still – but it’s very relaxing for me to do things (clean, cater to everyone, organise), so ‘relaxing and put my feet up’ would only frustrate me!
You know yourself. You know what stresses you out, what annoys you, what would ultimately ruin your mood for the whole day. Some of those things might be unavoidable! But, you probably also have a good idea of what calms you down, makes you happy and puts you in the best mood. Try to implement those things into the morning prep. If you know your bridesmaids well too, you could bring along some things you know will calm their nerves and make them happy as well!
