As fate would have it, Graham and Kerrie met on a night out in Melbourne and just happened to have a common connection – “He was from Hull in the UK, and my mum’s whole family had also been from Hull.” Kerrie tells us. It proved to be the perfect pickup and this brave bride took it upon herself to make the first move – “I definitely cracked onto him first,” she laughs, “that is his favourite part of the story!”
Laid back and casual, this couple wanted their wedding to be a reflection of them. With their littlest mascot – their son Billy – in mind, they carefully considered certain aspects of the day, “ Having our son with us, we wanted it to be relaxed and easy – I needed to be able to carry him in my dress, and knew he would pull at my hair! He was a huge part of our day, and our guests were so excited to meet him and see us as a little family”
According to Kerrie, Graham can be a little camera-shy, but with Kait Photography on the job, this groom had nothing to worry about! “We liked Kait’s style of taking photos of people in the moment, rather than smiling directly to the camera.” Kerrie tells us, “She spent time getting to know us, and our story which made such a difference. On the day we felt so comfortable!”
Our bride is proudly Brisbane born-and-bred, so these sweethearts made it their mission to show their interstate and overseas guests the very best the city has to offer. Their sunny ceremony was held in the exact spot where Graham proposed – on the waterfront in New Farm Park – while a recently renovated Watt Restaurant made for a stunning reception venue. With top-notch food, contemporary scandi-style and views of the Brisbane river, it was mission accomplished, if you ask us!
