MITCH & LEXI | THE BOWER ESTATE

A misty mountaintop wedding up in the Gold Coast hinterland

The image shows an aerial view of a wedding ceremony at the Bower Estate in the Gold Coast hinterland. The setting is serene and picturesque, nestled among lush greenery with mountains in the background. The wedding guests are arranged in neat rows, each holding a white umbrella, likely due to a slight drizzle. At the center, the wedding party stands, with the officiant and the couple at the altar. This monochromatic photograph captures a beautiful, intimate outdoor ceremony, where nature itself seems to be a guest of honor. The elevated perspective from the drone adds a unique and expansive feel to the captured moment, highlighting the grandeur of the landscape surrounding this special occasion.


Where do we start... our anticipation had been building for Mitch & Lexi's wedding ever since they booked us a little over a year ago. Their easy-going nature was infectious, and we instinctively knew their day was going to be extraordinary.


There's a unique joy in photographing weddings up in the mountains - it ignites creativity and excitement like nothing else. Mitch & Lexi's celebration unfolded at the Bower Estate in the Gold Coast hinterland, a location transformed into a misty mountain top wedding venue for their special day. Once a simple grassy area, it was reimagined into a venue with an outdoor bar, an al fresco dance floor, and a cozy ceremony space. We were in awe of its transformation; it was simply breathtaking.

The image is a close-up of an elegantly set wedding reception table. A white plate is adorned with a neatly folded white napkin and a place card with the guest's name, showcasing a touch of personalization. The gold cutlery adds a luxurious accent to the table setting. In the background, a bouquet of white hydrangeas and other flowers is arranged in a clear glass vase, contributing to the table's classic and sophisticated aesthetic. The soft, natural light and the use of white and gold create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the guests.

Lexi got ready on-site, in the elegance of the venue itself, surrounded by her closest friends and family. With the skilled assistance of Makeup Artistry by Natalie Lucas, Lexi was a vision that left everyone speechless, adorned in a luxurious silk dress. Her bridesmaids complemented her beautifully, dressed in blue, perfectly in sync with the wedding's simple yet elegant theme.

The entire day was a spectacle of beauty, from the meticulous details and colour scheme to the overwhelming love and energy that enveloped everything, including the heartfelt ceremony officiated by celebrant Lauren, who even provided heart-warming shots of Fireball for Mitch & Lexi.

Feeling incredibly honoured to be part of their day and to document such a beloved couple was a highlight for Tropical Romance.

A heartfelt thank you to Mitch & Lexi for allowing us to capture the essence and joy of their wedding day.


With LOVE, Konrad









Tell me about your The Beginning! We met in Bali at some random dodgy hotel we were both staying at, both weren't looking for anything serious and then he followed me back home and here we are 9 years later getting married with a 8 month old.


When and where did you get engaged?

We got engaged on 23/04/22. We took our dog for a walk on the beach and Mitch proposed there. The beach is my favourite place in the world, so it was beautiful. He also got our friends to hide and take photos and now we have some lovely photos of Mitch proposing.


What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?

Simple, black and white not going too crazy.



What are you most looking forward to on the day?

Seeing Mitch's face at the end of the isle.


Top Tips!

Don't create a seating chart haha!
