When Danielle first contacted us saying that she was planning a surprise wedding, we knew then and there that we just HAD to photograph it!! After all, it had been at the top of our bucket list for a long time. When we asked them what made them decide to have a surprise wedding, Alex replied saying “I love playing practical jokes. I just really want to troll everyone”. That just made us even more keen to be involved!
The couple disguised their beautiful backyard wedding as an engagement party, and being a designer herself, Danielle made sure it was the perfect mix of Palm Springs and Spanish fiesta. The styling was completely on point, including a caravan bar, paella station, and when it came time, a gorgeous pop-up ceremony spot!
We spent the first half of the afternoon pretending to be Danielle & Alex’s cool photographer friends who they met one night at the Boundary Street markets when they first moved to Brisbane. It wasn’t until an announcement was made that they were getting married right then and there that we were able to whip into pro-photographer mode, and from then on we captured so many incredible moments!
We felt so special to be included in their secret, and it’s safe to say now that these two are definitely our friends for real! We look forward to spending more fun times with them in the future!
