Mt Coot-tha Sunset Wedding

Mt Coot-tha Summit wedding by affordable and creative Brisbane wedding photographer, Sue Reilly Photography.
This couple were married in mid-Winter, but if you hadn’t looked at the calendar, there was no way you could tell. There were brilliant blue skies bathed in temperatures in the high twenties. The sunshine and warmth were particularly appreciated by some of the couple’s guests who had travelled from Britain to be present at this beautiful and hear-warming ceremony.
The very lovely and stylish bride got ready at her home and then travelled with her bridal party to the Mt Coot-tha Summit and Restaurant.
They were married in a small, intimate ceremony, surrounded by family and friends in the glassed pergola. The pergola, which is just outside the restaurant provides wonderful, uninterrupted views of Brisbane city.
A beautiful touch to the ceremony was the inclusion of a “ring-warming” ceremony which occurred at the beginning. The Best Man passed the wedding rings to the couple’s guests. Each guest held the rings and provided a personal blessing or good wishes for the couple.
The celebrant was the effervescent Renee Wilkins who personalised the ceremony to suit the couple and imbued the ceremony with the special joy and warmth that she brings to all her ceremonies.
Location photos were taken with the bridal party before canapes, and group photos. Then location photos with the wedding couple only were taken after canapes, so that we could have sunset photos including the city in the background. We were also able to take photos with the groom’s party car – a gorgeous, red-hot Chevrolet. (The lean in the car photos is due to the steep side-ways slope of the parking area – not because my shooting angle was off)!
The reception followed in the Fountain View Room, set aside for the exclusive use of the wedding party. The Room was beautifully lit with twinkle lights, with the bridal waltz and dances enhanced by a wonderful lighting display by the DJ.
The food and service at the Mt Coot-tha Summit was superb. The staff even accommodated a late afternoon visit earlier in the week so we could test out our lighting for the ceremony.The couple really wanted to have some ceremony photos with Brisbane city clearly in the background. As the ceremony location is very brightly back-lit on sunny days, we could only achieve this effect for the couple by use of off-camera lighting. We were very grateful to the Summit staff for assisting us in this goal.
