Mr & Mrs Dunne… aka Lisa and Michael had the most glorious, beautiful day to be married. It was forecast to have 80% showers and not a drop crashed their wedding. We were prepared for rain, rain and more rain and we got clear skies, sunshine and sunset. We were headed for the most fabulous Flaxton Gardens Winter Wedding!
Everything about their day was special and significant. Lisa and her girls got ready in the home she grew up in. The vibe of the morning was bubbly, happy, and tons of love with all her bridesmaids and parents buzzing with excitement! It was a great atmosphere to walk into. Lisa was as calm as can be with a few happy tears (from her and those getting ready with her) scattered throughout the morning. Evalyn Parsons Hair did a spectacular job while Ruby Jade Makeup Artistry worked her brilliance!
That moment that Lisa’s father saw her as a bride in her Augusta Joan wedding gown for the first time will stick with me (Treens) for a very long time. The boys got ready as all boys do…they put on their suits, had some shots taken and were out the door. Not as big a lead up as the girls, but they still looked handsome and schmick! Kirk loved the lego cufflinks!
The ceremony was held at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Buderim. Lisa was lead down the aisle by her father to the beautiful tunes by Matt Fasso. It was an emotional procession as Lisa approached her soon to be husband. Both looked amazing and we had to hold back a few tears as we captured as many of those precious memories as we could. Every moment was filled with something beautiful. The church was adorned with impressive glass windows and a gold and white banner with their names hung behind them as they exchanged their vows.
Flaxton Gardens was a spectacular venue for their reception. This place runs soooo smoothly and they are meticulous with the set up and service! All the staff are courteous, helpful and cheerful – setting a really wonderful vibe for every single wedding we have ever photographed there! Always a pleasure to work alongside them. There were games on the lawn with a stunning view as the backdrop, canapés were enjoyed and drinks flowed, and our very own Selfie Studio was put to work by guests while we had the bridal party photos. It’s always so funny to look through these booth photos later on 🙂
Matt Fasso once again worked his magic as he sung and played a heap of wonderful tunes and he sounded amazing! It really set the mood of the entire night and we were very impressed with his professionalism and musical talent! The flowers were absolutely breathtaking and smelt amazing! All flowers for every element of Lisa and Michael’s wedding day were lovingly created by the very gifted Jaana from Ashka Designs. Our photo session with the bridal party was a hoot and as you can see in the photos below, Michael and Lisa’s bridal party were hilarious and full of laughs. A tight-knit group who had so much adoration for Michael and Lisa…it was beautiful to see.
The whole night was amazing and we didn’t want to leave. Their family and friends made us so welcome and it was a real privilege to be invited along to such a special milestone in the Hirisimaki and Dunne families.
Blessings and love for your future together Lisa and Michael! Thank you for having us and we are thrilled that you love the photos that you have seen already from your sneaky sneak peek 🙂

Lisa surprised her husband with her own re-worded rendition of Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’. It was amazing!
