Wedding Photography At Braeside Chapel

I first met Ashlea and Mark soon after I moved to Queensland from Sydney. I was so happy they choose me as their wedding photographer as they were such a happy and easy going couple. Ashlea and Mark were married at a beautiful venue called Braeside Chapel in the Gold Coast.

Stunning natural backdrops

Ashlea and Mark both rented out houses close to their venue which is an excellent idea. Doing this saves a lot of time travelling and makes your day a lot less stressful. I always recommend to my couples to do this, as seen on my Tips and Articles section.

Braeside Chapel is a beautiful venue which is home to amazing landscaped gardens, its own self-contained chapel, a marquee to host your reception and several bars located around the premises. We were very lucky as it had been raining most of the day, but cleared up long enough for the ceremony and for our location photographs.

As a recent Gold Coast wedding photographer, I was very happy to finally shoot a wedding a Braeside Chapel. It is excellent for wedding photography as it contains a number of rustic nooks, an an amazing old fig tree. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.
