Lee and Katia were married on the 14th June 2008. A crystal clear Brisbane winters day was the forecast with temperatures in the low twenties, just idyllic for a wedding.Lee and Katia now live in Malmo Sweden and returned home to Australia for their wedding. Their week before the wedding was busy with final arrangements; it was at this time we met and discussed plans for the day and photography styles. Lee and Katia wanted their day to be a celebration and a wonderful opportunity to catch up with special friends and family; many from interstate. Lee and Katia have played handball for Australia and many of the guest list were people they have met through handball.

Mid morning on the big day, we caught up with Lee at his parent’s home relaxing with his groomsmen with a bottle of champagne in a sunny corner of the yard. The weather today is as good as it gets in Sweden in the summer! Brisbane has a wonderful climate… most of the year.

Lee ad Katia had chosen Sirromet for their wedding venue. Loving food and wine and good times, this venue promised to be perfect for their day and indeed it was. Katia prepared at a nearby guesthouse before making her way to Sirromet in fully restored (and modified!) 48/215 Holden.

Lee and Katia had chosen the Laguna at Sirromet for the wedding. Guests mingled with Lee before the wedding. This was a great time to for Lee to catch up with guests and receive best wishes.

Katia arrived, a little nervous and definitely excited. Walking down the isle was a special moment, in fact the the whole ceremony was wonderful. After signing the register, Lee and Katia were greeted by their guests with lots of hugs and kisses. A group shot of everyone there (yes, I climbed the tree yet again for the perfect birds eye view), some family photos and it was time for the bridal party to head off for some photos around the property and catch the last rays of sunlight.

The bridal party joined their guests for drinks at the cellar door as the cool the evening arrived. Watching old friends catch up is a great spectacle and the perfect subject for candid photos.

The Barrel Room had been set for Lee and Katia’s wedding just as they had arranged. Lee and Katia had chosen two MC’s for the reception; well dome to Matt and Karim for a job well done. It wasn’t long before the Barrel Room was filled with the noisy chatter of guests having a wonderful time over dinner. The food looked amazing as always, Executive Chef Andrew Mirosch and his team of talented chefs excelled again.

Sadly, it was time for us to leave, as we walked up the stairs, I looked back through the glass window at all the guests having a wonderful time and though; what a wonderful day we have had. How lucky are we to be able to share such precious moments with our clients.

The team at Reyment Photographics pass all our best wishes to Lee and Katia for their married life together. Even they live so far away, they are surrounded by a community of people who love them and value their friendship. “Snaps” for you both.
