shan & ben.. super chilled..

A wedding should not be a stressful thing.. It just shouldn’t.. If your wedding is a stress to organise, then you’re doing it wrong..

Shan & Ben are a perfect example of how to do things right..  Their wedding was in Rainbow Beach, a quiet seaside town on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast – close to where they both grew up.. Their hotel , the ceremony, and reception venue were all within 100 metres of each other.. This might even be the least stressful wedding I’ve ever been to..

It was an amazing day for sure and what I love most about Shan & Ben’s wedding is how they included their two sons in their celebration – it was beautiful..  For Shan & Ben, their wedding (as awesome as it was), wasn’t even really about the wedding – it was about relationships..  Life-long friends & super-close families sharing good times & cutting loose for a day to party on.. It was freakin’ amazing to see.. And for a day, they embraced us like family too..  I just wanted to hug everyone there, but I didn’t because that would seem a little weird I think  :)


Shan & Ben’s wedding is also featured on Polkadot Bride so check it out for more of their story..

Big highfives to my co-pilot Alyda, and Shan & Ben for being awesome.. (ps.. Shan wears Karen Willis Holmes)


love from todd..

Jazzy Jeff Hi Toddy and Lades! I had big, fat, soggy tears (happy tears) rolling down my cheeks reliving Shan and Ben’s day. The photos with those gorgeous nephews of mine especially hit me hard, real hard – they made the day all the more special. Once again, you guys nailed it. Love and hugs to you Team McGaw :)
