Having met up with Alex & Shell a couple of months beforehand for their engagement shoot I was really excited to be there to capture their Factory 51 wedding! Having shot there a few times in the past year I know what a fabulous spot it is (and what yummy food they have!).

We started off at the gorgeous Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments in the valley for getting ready photos before heading off to Factory 51 for their ceremony. Guest of honour Nutmeg (Alex & Shell’s dog) was there, sitting in the front row.

For photos, Alex & Shell wanted to stay pretty local so they weren’t spending ages travelling and missing their party. We went to a couple of spots nearby in Coorparoo so we got a variety of looks for their photos. By the time we got back to Factory 51 the amazing staff there had transformed the room for the reception and had everything looking gorgeous. Everyone enjoyed a lovely meal, some fantastic speeches and danced the night away.  Enjoy a little peek into their special day!

Alex & Shell: “Kirsty is amazing, I cannot recommend her enough! We knew she was the right fit for us as soon as we met. Kirsty has an incredible ability to make you feel at ease in front of the camera and feel like you’re just having fun, not getting your photo taken. Our engagement shoot and wedding photos are simply incredible. Book Kirsty now! You won’t regret it :)”
