If you’ve scooped up a copy of our third annual Real Wedding Special, you’ll remember Queensland pair Jess and Riz, whose big day was captured by photographers Trent & Jessie.

This awesome couple loved the idea of having a big, romantic party and wanted the the beautiful scenery to do the talking – and, man, did they pull it off flawlessly! Despite the challenges of planning a DIY celebration of a private property, Jess and Riz were even inspired to launch their own business, Indigo and Ivy, specialising in event styling and absolutely delicious grazing tables.

Another essential vendor for this wonderful wedding was Joel Tronoff (you can learn more about him here!). This Brisbane based cinematographer has an obvious passion for creating stories through complex light and shadow imagery and prides himself on the authentic quality of his work.

Joel likes to create wedding films which are a true reflection of you and your lover, and is a sort of videography ninja – fading into the background so that he can capture the moments that are real and true and yours…no posing, no pushing, no parading. Just you.

Keen to see more of Joel’s work? Check out Esther and Jake‘s wedding video here as well as his behind the scene’s look of our Laidback Bride Editorial Shoot, featured here.

And, of course, if you haven’t already…be sure to pick up a copy of our 2017 Real Wedding Special at your local newsagent. This year’s Special features over 250 pages of never before seen real weddings, all boasting unique styling ideas and inspiration, a sh*t tonne of awesome vendors and one heck of a competition (thanks to our friends at Grew & Co!).
