Sarah and Jeremy, a fabulous couple, ‘danced’ up from Melbourne to have their wedding day at Villa Botanica, most probably the jewel in the crown in the gorgeous Whitsundays. Taking a much needed break from their busy lives as dancers with Burn the Floor, Dancing with the Stars, and too many (!) numerous acclaimed Broadway and West End productions, they chose to have their ceremony overlooking Airlie Beach, joined by much loved family and great friends. Here is only a small sample of wedding photography from their wedding and celebrations, created by Just One Moment Photography, based in Mackay. Below is a small photo gallery and you’ll also find a photo-video of this wonderful, happy day.
There are video highlights from Sarah and Jeremy’s wedding day – and you can view the photo skideshow here:

What’s old is new again! Themed weddings, vintage wedding dress styles and much more …
Swaying tassels, teardrop pearls, feathered glamour and all that jazz… if you’re into vintage there’s never been a better time to recreate the pin-up romance of a bygone era. There’s been a huge swing towards vintage weddings in recent times, and it’s not hard to see why. For starters, there’s something deliciously elegant about having an excuse to experiment with silk mittens and scarfs, siren-red lipstick, real curls and bowler hats for the boys. Then there’s the fact that it’s just so much fun.
Wedding trends featuring a vintage look and wedding themes based on fifties styles are a great way to really hold a memorable ceremony and celebrations for your day. When everyone from the guests to the groom have spruced up in a bit of old-time attire, it’s incredible how atmospheric the day can be – and of course for your wedding photography! There are many shops and places in and around Mackay where you can pick up some vintage gear – clothing, shoes or accessories to make your wedding really unique.
It’s nostalgic, it’s different, it’s memorable and you can really let loose in the century you’ve always wanted to see. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to vintage. You can adopt any era to suit your day – or even blend a few.
Vintage 20s: The French called it the “années folles” (crazy years) and it wasn’t known as the roaring twenties for nothing .This was the age of swinging, silken, oh-so-cool elegance. Think flapper dresses, tassles, pearl strings, cloche hats and bobbled hair. A great look for fabulous vintage wedding dresses. Style icons include Coco Chanel, Louise Brooks and Al Capone.
Vintage 30s: An age of long, wide skirts and narrow waists – or (for the first time) tailored trousers for the girls. Evening wear took on a shimmering luxury with gowns of colourful chiffon or backless halter necks. Style icons included Greta Garbo and Bette Davis.
Vintage 40s: It was the war-time era but that didn’t stop some of fashion’s most notable trends from emerging. The classic 40s was padded shoulders, a trim waist and shoulder length curled hair, styled into exquisite up-dos in the evening. Style icons were Ingrid Bergman, the sultry Rita Hayworth and Fred Astaire.
Vintage 50s: A hugely popular fashion era, the 50s are renowned for both Marilyn Monroe soft curves and glamour, and Audrey Hepburn’s sylph like style. Think anything from tight waisted polka dots to stunning off-the-shoulder gowns. Icons included Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and James Dean.
Whatever theme or idea that you would really love to have for your wedding celebrations, whether vintage, fifties style or something else – we can help. For beautiful and affordable quality wedding photography, please do get in touch. Remember – your wedding day is not just just to be treasured by yourselves, it is to be held in the hands of the generation that follows you both.
