I dont normally read trashy gossip magazines but recently read a story in TV WEEK and I thought ‘WOW’  TV WEEK is still going in our digital age. Anyway, the story was about Sarah Roberts  and how last year, her life was completely different. The actress had just moved to Sydney from Melbourne and made her debut in Home And Away. I thought about how so much can change in year.
Sarah Roberts said she met the man of her dreams on the sands of Summer Bay in the form of her H&A co-star James Stewart. I also thought ‘that’s a bit glamourous’.
Being a wedding photographer in Toowoomba I am a long way from summer bay you could say it’s a ‘flamin’ long way.

When I photographed Kieran and Jasmyne for their engagement session. I noticed how much these two people really are in love and are so excited to start sharing their lives.
They have both lived in various locations all over Australia but love the bush; so a rural location was the best choice to reflect who they are and where they spend their time.

While most new couples are quick to profess their love in public, Jasmyne and Keiran, opted for a low profile location for engagement session. But Jasmyne and Kieran are also quite open to public displays of affection.   

The location that we used reflected who they are. The Oakey Meringandan road is a quiet road that is just outside Toowoomba. There are open paddocks are creek which is lined by big gums trees. It is a location that is private and where we could have fun and they can be relaxed without feeling they are on display in the view of the public.

I had to be mindful of time during this session. They were about to move towns and going to start their new lives after they had finished their engagement session. They were still keen to have their engagement even though they had a four drive ahead of them.

We did talk about their wedding and where they are thinking of have their wedding. One location they talked about was the sunshine coast. I have photographed a lot of weddings there and it is a gorgeous place to get married but when you live 4 hours outside Toowoomba and another two and a half drive on top of that can make it a little awkward to plan a wedding.

Since they have a outdoor lifestyle I did suggested was Columboola Country http://www.columboolacountry.com.au/ which is located Ryalls Rd Miles Queensland 4415 Australia. Ph/Fax: 07 4665 8293. This isn’t a paid add. But they have a great range of accommodation options at Columboola Country. Cabins, cottages, caravan and camping facilities are all on offer for our guests. Fishing & crayfishing are available at your door in our large natural "rockhole" lagoon. They have wedding ceremonies overlooking the lagoon. Many guests like to relax by wetting a line, and there are plenty of fish and crayfish to be found in the rockhole or other nearby waterways.

Pets are welcome at Columboola Country. Dogs are not the only companions our guests bring with them on holiday. Those with horses are also welcome, as they have well-built stables available for your animals. The stables make a great spot for wedding photos for couples who love their horses.

Columboola Country is ideally located for the traveling holiday maker. They are a four-comfortable drive west of Brisbane, just off the main Warrego Highway. We are also only two hours north of Goondiwindi, which is the major inland crossing point between Queensland and NSW.

In this country setting they can ready for their wedding and have the ceremony and reception all in one place. It also has the added advantage of guests can stay and not have to drive after attending the wedding reception.

One thing they did say their wedding "We just wanted to keep things special between us." Which I always feel is a important to keep in mind when planning a wedding.
