St Bernard’s Hotel Wedding | Doug + Belinda
As a Gold Coast based wedding photographer I meet so many wonderful couples and photograph weddings at some of the the most gorgeous locations and this wedding is another I will remember and loved being apart of. St Bernard’s Hotel is one of my favourite wedding venues with so many photo opportunities. I love all the special moments and stories shared, and being apart of a special day.
Belinda and Doug first met when they were 18, and both had partners at the time. They spoke on and off over the years and lost touch as their lives took them in different directions. In 2014 they came in contact once again and were great friends with lots to discuss both having children of their own. Belinda was never set on getting married but would bug Doug with the idea just to annoy him. Doug asked the kids what would they think and to Belinda’s surprise, one morning when hanging out with the kids he asked Belinda to marry him. The rest is history.
Wedding days bring so much emotion and anxiety and Belinda’s was through the roof (in a good way) and Doug, well Doug was there for everything but the photos, and look at how amazing they did and how fantastic their day looks.
A massive congratulations to you both. Belinda, you did it! and did so well… and Doug thanks so much for hanging in there with the photos. You both looked amazing and so happy to together and your family is gorgeous.
