Claire and Robbie Down Converys Lane Wedding photography

 

I met Claire and Rob at Veronika and Steve’s wedding at Boomerang Farm and my first impressions of these two were, they wanted to have fun, they were never far from the dance floor that night. Claire and Robbie wanted the same for their own wedding at Down Converys Lane to be relaxed and a fun celebration. They didn’t disappoint. Everything from the styling, the hand made bouquet to that dress!!! the little touches like they made their own candles, to Claire getting the kids in her class to write out the table name tags as best they can in crayon, just made this wedding so personal. The speeches floored me with the emotion and strength in every word. To add to all this, is Claire and Robbie's attitude to creating a fun relaxed environment for them to enjoy time with friends and family. A wedding but it was more like a family reunion where everyone was family at their wedding. 

 

 

How did he Propose? 

 

Robbie took me to the Cinderella chalet in Springbrook (Mouses House). The name of our chalet skyrocketed my suspicions of a proposal, but Robbie was a cool as a damn cucumber. We went for a romantic walk in the rainforest, the romance depleted once I discovered a leech on my leg. Upon this discovery Robbie realised he too had leeches- twelve to be exact.  We were screaming and laughing and running back to our chalet, then we were hit with a torrential downpour. Kisses in the rain are the perfect kind of kisses, so we monopolised on this downpour. We got back to the chalet and Robbie told me to dry off because we were heading out to see the sunset. I could hear the wedding bells chiming. I’m in the car looking out for the ‘proposal’ lookout then he pulls up at a house and tells me to walk up the driveway and ask for Amanda. I was totally bamboozled! Amanda turned out to be a masseuse. By this stage in our weekend away I was convinced of the imminent proposal. During the massage I was completely overwhelmed with excitement and happiness that I cried into the little rose petal bowl that you look at when you have a massage. The lovely Amanda drove me back to our chalet. When I opened the door it was filled with hundreds of candles – Robbie told me afterwards that 5 minutes before I was due back he opened the door and a gust of wind blew out the majority. He was frantically lighting them seconds before I arrived. I found a little letter on the floor. He had written out a little scavenger hunt! I was hopeless at solving the riddles. Robbie would often call out the answers from his hiding place to speed things up. Ha! The final clue brought me to Robbie on his knee!

 

Your Venue, and why did you pick it?

 

After meeting the owners Tony and Kimmy we were sold on Down Converys Lane. They are lovely and incredibly passionate about what they do. They care about every little detail on their property and it is a credit to them. They have impeccable taste!

 

Any funny stories from the day? 

 

After my Dad walked me down the aisle he assumed position up the front right next to Robbie and the Groomsmen. I am the first daughter to be married in my family, so Dad is a rookie walker down the aisler. Dottie (our celebrant) whispered his name with a subtle hand gesture to his seat. Dad in all his glory misunderstood this gesture as a, get closer to Robbie and the groomsmen signal. He repositioned himself nice and tight amongst the lads. After about two more attempts on Dottie’s behalf and a couple heckles from the crowd it all clicked and he bounded toward his seat. It was hysterical! There was a very real possibility I would be an emotional mess up there pouring out my heart to Robbie, so this little mishap broke the tension and let us all rejoice in a laugh. 

 

Advice for other couples planning a wedding?

 

For the bride- On the way to the venue we sang all our favourite songs. It was such a good way to release all the nerves. We started with wedding appropriate numbers like; The Chapel of Love, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough…then our true colours came out with Gangsters Paradise and (I’m ashamed to say) Meatloaf….  We were having so much fun we actually missed the turn to our venue. 

For the few nights before your mind is racing with all the little things you still need to get in order. Once you lay down they flood into your mind. Go to bed with a pen and paper really close so you can write the fleeting thought down and you don’t have to try and bank it into your wedding brain (which isn’t the greatest working brain) for the morning. 

For the boys- (Robbie typing here) The morning of the wedding the Groomsmen and I went for a run and threw a ball around to blow off some steam. 

Don’t stress the little things! We thought we would have a chance at getting Juzzie Smith and almost canned the idea thinking it was too farfetched. I decided to write him a little love letter to tell him how amazing his music is and let him know where and when we were getting married. He wrote back the next day letting me know that he had actually taken the weekend off to be with his kids but he would pop in for an hour set before dinner. This news was like winning the lottery. I actually wept when I read it…and afterward for about three hours. Having fun, energetic, dancing music before dinner created such a fun atmosphere. 

So, to make this piece of advice a little more concise- Nothing is too farfetched!
