Isaac & Corinne’s Rockhampton Wedding Part II by Trent & Jessie Photographers








Isaac_and_Corinne-921How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding?
The guest list would have been the most difficult aspect. We were aiming to have 80 guests, it blew out to 120.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line?
We decided to go with the traditional vows. We had spoken about writing our own but thought there was something beautiful in making the same promises our parents and grandparents and others we admire have made.

What advice do you have for couples currently planning a wedding?
Just remember the day is about the two of you! Personalise what you can and don’t feel pressured by expectations. Then on the day, take time to take it all in.

Who were your suppliers?
We loved so many of our local supplies.
I absolutely loved our wedding cake made by COCOJO. Jo also made our favours, some sweet biscuits with lace which matched the cake.

We got married at the Salvation Army Church in Rockhampton with the reception held at the Heritage Village. The Heritage Village was perfect for the feel we wanted and for all our DIY’s.

I had some initial difficulty finding a florist but eventually found La Maison de Fleurs and was so glad I did. Nothing was too much trouble and they did everything I asked for.

We’ve had so many comments on our photos and it’s all thanks to Trent and Jessie from Trent and Jessie Photographers.

Our invitations were done by my exceptionally talented brother at Pure Design Studios in Rockhampton. I had my heart set on gold foil and they were worth the wait!

I did my own make-up.

My beautiful friend Beth from Katie Lauren did my hair and all the bridesmaids. Having someone I knew and trusted helped relieve stress on the day.

Accommodation was at the stunning Denison Boutique.

I really wanted giant cutout letters spelling the word LOVE but couldn’t find any suppliers in the region. O’Donnell Cabinet Makers were amazing and made them for us. They were a perfect touch to our relaxed, fun and romantic day.

Isaac & Corinne’s Rockhampton Wedding by Trent & Jessie Photographers – Part 1

You may have noticed a preview in this weekend’s Morning Bulletin and now here is Part I of Isaac and Corinne’s wedding day! This was a day full of joy, honour for their families, heartfelt emotion, and laughter. Despite living outside of Central Queensland for most of the wedding planning season, the stunning bride brought together an incredible amount of detail and DIY to make this a visually beautiful day so perfectly captured by her photographers Trent and Jessie.

How did you both meet? Tell us your love story.
We had lots of mutual friends so were always around each other. It all happened very naturally, we started hanging out together more and more and realized how much we had in common. His dad helped to play matchmaker.
Tell us all about the proposal!
We had spent the morning with our family. My parents who live overseas were in the country and that night was Zaac’s birthday party. We were busy with party preparations when Zaac kept begging me to go on a picnic. I thought we didn’t have time but somehow he pushed me out the door and into the car. Little did I know what was about to happen. He got down on one knee at our favourite spot on Mt Archer. With all of our friends and family together that evening celebrating Zaac’s birthday, it was the perfect moment to announce our news.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress!
I found it two days after getting engaged! I was a big fan Anna Campbell’s work and with my mum returning home overseas, we had one day to shop together. I tried on a dress I had fallen in love with online and when I walked out in it, Mum got teary. We bought it then and there, the only dress I had tried on.

 Why did you decide to have your wedding in Central Queensland and why are you glad you did?
We met in Rockhampton and most of our friends and family live there so the choice was largely made for us. Zaac also grew up in the Rockhampton area so it holds a special place in his heart.
What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in planning your wedding in Central Queensland?
I was working away at the time and was planning a wedding from a distance. I was flying up every second weekend in order to get the wedding details sorted within seven months. Amazingly, most things just came together. The guest list was probably the biggest obstacle with so many friends and family we wanted there.
Our favourite detail of the wedding was:
Having my dad walk me down the aisle and then officiate our wedding was pretty special. My late Nanna’s broche was attached to my bouquet – one special lady who I wished could have been there. Also just seeing all our DIY’s come together. (Ok – that was 3 things!) Zaac said, for him, it was just how beautiful the bride was and the sense of pride it gave him.
