Minim's Rest - Bridal Shoot

Earlier this week I had the very considerable pleasure of travelling up to the Sunshine Coast to an estate near Mount Nebo called Minim's Rest.  I was part of a substantial crew of professionals who were there to help with the production of the Aurum Bride Hair & Makeup video.

This beautiful estate provides a luxurious experience for visitors and accommodation to make even the most discerning guests feel very well looked after indeed.  Our Hosts Dave and Shelby were gracious and generous in every way and this made the whole team feel relaxed and substantially pampered.

We worked throughout the day to generate the narrative of a Bride's big day from waking up in the morning and having that first sip of coffee to settling into the makeup chair to have her face put on and her hair styled ready for the ceremony.

Our Videographer Glen worked his socks off running around with his rig getting all the shots and B-Role he needed and still finding time to help others out when required.  

With many thousands of dollars of jewellery arriving from Le Gassicks Jewellers (along with a security detail), a stunning wedding dress by Leonard Derecourt and flowers from Wild Lotus Florists our Bride (the very beautiful Charlotte Anne Burbidge) was complete.
