Straddie Wedding Photos & Inspo
Minjerribah, North Stradbroke Island in Queensland, or as it is known by most, Straddie, has some of the most picturesque wedding photoshoot locations! We have teamed up with our friends over at Stradbroke Island Photography to show off just some of what this beautiful place has to offer for your wedding shoot.
Totally PIN-able moments to share with you and a great way to show you some wedding inspo. Stradbroke Island Photography is just one of the incredible local photographers to the Island, they take the awkward out of wedding photos – because yes there are those cringe-worthy photos out there. And some of us aren’t born ‘models’ – here’s a look at 20 of the best ideas for wedding photos on Straddie!
Don’t forget top PIN, PIN, PIN your favourites.
1. A Dash of that Afternoon Light
Straddie Sunsets are one of a kind – and there are so many places where you can capture them from around Straddie. But just before Sunset there is a time where the lights is just right & the result is something pretty magic.
2. Dancing with your Lover on the Sand
The simple most relaxed vibe. Adding that romantic twirl – so much more fun capturing a movement rather than a stiff posed photo.
3. The Long Stare
Romantic and effortless – taking professional photos can be a little awkward sometimes for couples – but it tends to be the most simple moments which are the cutest.
Make sure you celebrate – because that is what the day is all about!
Maybe just one for the nimble couples out there – But it does look like Oh So Much Fun!
6. And Dip
7. Bring your Furry Family Members
Straddie is also a holiday destination for your furry friends – why not involve them in your special day as well.
8. On Location – The Natural Stroll
Great for the non-posers a simple walking shot with you two & the most beautiful backdrop.
9. Kick the leg
Simple yet elegant
Not only beautiful beaches and Headland’s but also the simplicity of the natural coastal bushland, providing a whimsical aesthetic to your photos.
11. Incorporate the Wildlife
Don’t feed the wildlife – but there’s plenty of sea life, bird life & our Aussie friends about that they might steal the limelight.
12. Get Blown Away
Not literally – but a gentle breeze captured in this epic photo – South Gorge & wind in the veil!
Celebrate your own way
14. As the Sun goes down
Classic & timeless the Sundowner shots are some of our absolute favourites. Like we said a Straddie Sunset is not to be missed!
15. Hay Gelato!
Incorporating the MUST-DO Straddie icons – The Oceanic Gelati Bar plus our favourite type of wedding transport – the COMBI VAN.
16. The Long Kiss
That When Harry met Sally moment – “I’ll have what she’s having”
17. Be relaxed with Family & Friends
The hectic running around on a wedding day can easily mean you let the moment pass you by without fully appreciating it. Make sure you have some down time.
18. Be Silly
Always good to remember not to take yourself too seriously – silly & fun photos are a joy to look back on.
Something about the moodiness of stormy days and wedding photos – they’re so artistic!
Not always a bad thing a bit of rain on your wedding day!
20. Trash the DRESS!!!
Not sure when this came into style but definitely a really fun way to DEFINITELY not take the day super seriously & just ENJOY yourselves – trash the dress is usually shot the following day after the wedding.
Trash the dress.
Rock the Frock.
What an amazing way to finish up your Stradbroke Island wedding celebration extravaganza.
And why not… You are looking HOT, your dress has red wine down one side, black marks on the bottom and buttons missing from the back (you have no idea where your veil ended up… or is this just me after my wedding!)
The pressures from organising your awesome wedding is over, most of your guests have left the island by now, the hangover has subsided and your dress is in a ball in the corner (oops)
Pick it up, put it on, convince your new husband to get back into his duds, grab a bottle of champers, find your bouquet and meet us down the beach for a definitely wet, certainly sandy but very, very fun shoot.
It must feel so freeing, officially ending the ‘festival of you guys’ with a cuddle in the ocean with your man, plus the photos are pretty amazing.
And don’t worry… the dress doesn’t actually get ‘trashed’ just a bit wet and sandy and the photos you get out of it (plus all of that stress relief and fun) are totally worth it.
Stradbroke Island Photography are all over this.
Add the shoot to one of their wedding photography and videography packages to top off your crazy awesome Straddie wedding.
Couldn’t you imagine your special day here?! We LOVE love, and enjoy everything we do!
