Who did you choose to marry you, and why? Lisa Philipsen. She has done some of our friend’s weddings and she is just such a happy, vibrant and friendly person who we both get along with really well.
Tell me about your venue? What was the deciding factor? – For our ceremony at Greenway Chapel, we loved the surrounding high glass windows overlooking the natural background of trees, and not to mention we didn’t have to worry about a wet weather option
haha. For our reception at Ettalong Diggers, it was in our local area and we had heard many reports about their weddings and how good they were. Once meeting with the Event Managers we loved their friendly nature and their willingness to help which just added to us deciding that’s where we wanted to have it.
Why did you end up choosing Lisa Lent to shoot your day? – Mrs Lisa basically told us that we had to get married already haha. She was the one to kick us into gear and actually organise a wedding after being engaged for 6 years. So for us, there was no other option
than to have her shoot our day. We both get along with Lisa. We’ve been to multiple weddings that she has shot so we’ve been able to build a great comfort level as well as a friendship repore with her. Not to mention the final product of her photographs are always amazing!
