World Wedding Photography: Brisbane, Australia

Whether you’re a same-sex couple or heterosexual lover who wish to tie the knot, Brisbane, Australia is definitely on the list of many dream destination weddings. From catering to the venue to wedding photographers, in Brisbane, marriages are very much celebrated and organized well. A nine-hour trip up north from Sydney and an hour from Gold Coast, Brisbane is a beautiful and trimmed metropolis along the Brisbane River. It’s got a Sunshine Coast and is a common gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, an aquatic legacy that we may soon lose to climate change. 

This area boasts dozens of stunning locations and venues for weddings. There’s Stamford Plaza that overlooks the beautiful riverfront. For a ritzy outdoor affair, there’s Victoria Park. Of course, Brisbane’s Marriott won’t let you down if you’re looking for a hotel venue. And if you like wine, then City Winery Brisbane along Wandoo Street would be the perfect spot. Of course, these places won’t be as complete without a Brisbane wedding photography team to capture the moments!

Another wonderful reason to take your wedding to Brisbane is how much bang for the buck you can actually get. In the 2018 Easy Weddings Survey, Queensland is one of the most affordable states when it comes to wedding venues. Wedding photographers in Brisbane are also the most affordable with an average cost of around A$2,400. That’s A$1,000 cheaper than in NSW. The price is almost the same with videography as well. Overall, Queensland rates as a very affordable state to stage your marriage ceremony.

Brisbane is also not short of tourist attractions for you and your wedding guests. First of all, the Brisbane River is a sight to see. Going on a river cruise is definitely a must with your wedding entourage. (And do not worry for this can be a part of your wedding photography in Brisbane!) There’s the Brisbane Botanic Gardens in Mount Coot-ha where the flora and fauna are just as unique as the name. And while you’re there, get a full view of the city sunset as well. If you want something fun and adventurous, there’s the Warner Brothers theme Park in nearby Gold Coast.

In Brisbane, there is so much to uncover and so many spaces to carve out new memories with your special someone. It’s a city that can make your experience both intimate and social, contemplative and exciting, distant yet close. And there’s no better way to make these moments last forever than getting the best wedding photographers in Brisbane.

Chicken Restaurant Food Lebanese Restaurant Tips

3 Lip-smacking Chicken Dishes in Sydney to Try Now!

The COVID-19 Pandemic may have halted economic activity for many industries in Australia but definitely not the food industry, especially poultry businesses. Groceries, food shacks, meal prep deliveries, and even chicken restaurants continue to serve up delicious poultry, fresh or cooked. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, meat and poultry products account for 9.2 percent of the total weight of foods and beverages purchased in 2019-2020. It’s also the 7th most consumed sub-major food group just behind red meats (like beef, lamb, and pork) and bread.

While the data indeed tells us how much Aussies love their chicken, it doesn’t really say what our favorite chook shacks are. Here in Sydney, there are dozens of chicken joints that are both celebrated and have yet to be discovered. They’re also very diverse: you can try out a Chinese, Korean, American, or even a Lebanese restaurant in Sydney that offers their own version of a chicken dish (or dishes!). But when it comes to the best, here are three must-try chicken specials.

Fried chicken and donut

If you’re tired of the usual chicken and chips plate you’ve been having for weeks, this dish will make you appreciate fried chicken again. Somewhere in the riverbanks of Parramatta lies a popular chook spot among Instagramming millennials. The reason: it serves up a very unique combination of donuts and fried chicken on one plate. You got that right. It’s a fried chicken chop resting on a pillowy and golden brown donut topped with salted butter! This is not something you’ll usually get in a typical chicken restaurant so it’s definitely worth trying!

Korean roasted chicken

A few years ago, Australia caught up with the global Korean culture wave and was left with their version of boy bands and fried chicken. While we’ve had a taste of that many times, it’s their take of the roasted chicken that we never really got a hold of. If you’re curious to know more about it, there’s this chicken restaurant in Haymarket serving up some really delicious Korean roasted chicken. They even serve it in a UFO fondue of gooey and creamy cheese!

Lebanese roast chicken

Last but not least on this list is a taste of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. If your tastebuds have gone bland from eating your usual foodstuffs, there is a place that serves the most phenomenal charcoal chicken in Granville. Known as Farrouj Meshwi, this chicken is unbelievably marinated in a medley of spices including cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cumin, and paired with a garlic sauce to die for. While simply roasted in charcoal, the chicken explodes in so much flavor, you will forget what this dish is called in Lebanese!
