I’m pretty excited to share a few images from Jacinta and David’s Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat Wedding. With its stunning mountains and enchanted rainforests, Crystal Creek is a seriously epic location for wedding or elopement photos.
But before I get too carried away, let’s take a few steps back to where Jacinta and David’s special day began. These two lovers got hitched at one of my favourite Gold Coast/Tweed wedding venues – Pioneer Country. The beautiful chapel in which they got married is surprisingly light and airy and was perfect for Jacinta and David.
Like many of my recent couples, Jacinta and David and had a small and intimate ceremony with their close family and friends. Sadly, due to covid, Jacinta’s bridal party couldn’t make it over from Perth. Nonetheless, the small numbers made for a very cosy ceremony.
Jacinta and David forewent a wedding reception and went straight to their honeymoon location after the ceremony. Not a bad idea when you think about it!
Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat Wedding Photography
The whole way from Pioneer Country to Crystal Creek it was bucketing down rain. I was having doubts about whether the photo shoot would even work. But almost as if by the will of the universe, the rain stopped and held off for just enough time for Jacinta and David’s newlywed photos. And yes, towards the end of the shoot it did start to rain again. But as you will see, this added a whole other level of epicness to their photos!
Jacinta and David were a super lovely couple to spend the day with. Like many couples, I don’t think having their photos taken came naturally to them. But I hope I was able to make them comfortable and relaxed and that this showed in the photos.
As for me, what an incredible start to 2021! When I can get killer drone and rain shots in one shoot, well, that’s a massive double whammy that rarely happens. Fingers crossed for more of that this year!
