Our Wedding Photographer of the Moment - Sunshine Coast

Novotel Twin Waters Resort has had a long standing reputation for housing beautiful beachfront weddings, nestled in amongst our beautiful gardens. For years photographers have captured precious moments between newlyweds and their guests. But one photographer has recently captured our hearts with her warm, soulful photography.

Leah Cruikshank is a Toowoomba based photographer who worked on Sarah & Monte’s wedding back in March. When our bride Sarah shared some of the images with us, our whole team fell in love with how magnificently Leah was able to showcase the resort grounds in a romantic and rustic light.

Novotel Twin Waters Resort has often been the setting for very light, bright and summery photography, due to our coastal environment; however, Leah has expertly captured a different side to the property, highlighting the surrounding forestry which can sometimes be forgotten about. She reminisced on the day with us highlighting how much she “loved that just outside the gates of Novotel Twin Waters Resort there are some amazing forest locations... so, even though we were surrounded by the beach, I was still able to capture some natural and more 'country' style locations in the photos”.

Looking back on their wedding day, you wouldn’t have known that the weather had a mind of its own, as the heavens opened up before their ceremony. That certainly didn’t stop Leah from making the best of the difficult conditions, reassuring them to “never be afraid of rainy weather as it completely adds to a more moody and romantic vibe for your wedding day photos”.

When we reached out to Sarah, our lovely bride, she couldn’t speak more highly of Leah’s work, “We absolutely love her, and we’re so extremely happy with our wedding photos”.

We believe it goes without saying that you’re pretty much guaranteed to see beautiful, romantic wedding day photos by working with Leah. But, above all else, she is a photographer who will truly listen to what you want, and do her absolute best to deliver... even if that means standing out in the rain!
