Jake & Rebecca – Pullman Magenta Shores: 14.9.19

A wonderful day for Bec and Jake who married at Pullman Magenta Shores on Saturday. I was recommended to these guys by past couples and their families and it’s so nice to see familiar faces. A big thanks from me! Jake and Bec were getting ready in separate townhouses at Magenta – makes it easy when it’s all at the one location. I went to Jake and the boys first and it’s always great when parents are there too to get those all important family photos. Jake was to read a card from Bec so myself and videographer Kara (from Way Up High) took him outside and lets just say his reaction bought myself and Kara to tears. Off to the girls who were getting ready for the big day ahead and soon the ceremony took place officiated by the bubbly Lauren Teys. Her ceremonies are awesome and if you’re wondering why I took a photo of the guests with hands on hearts its because she was making them pledge they would have the best day and night – and everyone certainly did. Also, check out the little Page Boy cruising down the aisle waving at everyone – this was the absolute cutest. Once Bec arrived, Jake’s reaction was just as I expected. Full of love for his bride. 

It was a wonderful reception – a little something different with a cake ceremony on entry, where they cut the cake, soon followed by some heartfelt speeches, great food, bouquet and garter toss and some epic moves on the dance floor. 

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Ida and enjoy your honeymoon!

Scott & Amy – Gracelands Forresters Beach: 13.9.19

This wedding was so much fun! Amy and Scott tied the knot at Gracelands Forresters Beach on a sunny spring afternoon. I started off with the boys for a few prep shots and over to the girls at Bateau Bay. Everyone looked absolutely stunning. I met Amy when she was a bridesmaid last year for her friend Sarah who’s wedding I shot, and this time Sarah was Amy’s bridesmaid along with sister Kate and friend Bec. Lots of giggles with these girls – Amy you’re an absolute crack up with a big smile and so fun to be around. The ceremony was out the back of Gracelands and after it was all official we headed up to Crackneck for  photos with the bridal party. The reception was cocktail style, lots of fun, kids were having a ball and these two were just simply all loved up!

Thanks for having me there ! Wishing you both every happiness.

Adam & Janice – Best Western Plus Apollo International Charlestown: 25.8.19

Congratulations to Adam and Janice who were married at the Apollo Charlestown on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. It was such a pleasure to be there and be a part of this wonderful day. This is the first time I’ve been to this venue and what a truly lovely spot for a wedding. The gazebo out the back was the ceremony location with the beautiful bushy backdrop. What I particularly loved about the ceremony was when Adam sang a song to his soon to be wife and he really did a brilliant job despite a few nerves. This takes a lot of courage and I was truly moved that he did this. I think everyone was. After the ceremony and guest congratulations, we did some photos amongst the trees and then headed up to a nearby lookout. I’m sure you will see by the photos that Janice is a true fashionista – she really made the dress her own by adding her own personal touches and check out the red boots! Not only did they look fantastic but it was easy for her to walk on the walking track to get to the lookout. The reception was lots of fun and here’s a first – a thriller dance! Not only is Janice into fashion but also specialised make up – I love a bit of something different and it certainly was that! 

Congratulations to the newest married couple I know!

Michael & Stevie – Rafferty’s Resort: 10.8.19

Congratulations Michael and Stevie who married at Rafferty’s Resort on a chilly winters day. Due to the winds, the ceremony was moved indoors (wise choice), and lucky I managed to find a couple of spots a little sheltered. Once the bridal party were announced, there was only one speech made by Maid of Honour Sam and then a father daughter dance that Stevie did with her grandfather in memory of her Dad – what lovely moments to capture. 

Congratulations again and wishing you two all the best as you begin married life.

Daniel & Gemma – Rafferty’s Resort: 3.8.19

What a great way to kick off wedding season! A perfect day at Rafferty’s Resort for Daniel and Gemma’s wedding with the sun shining upon them so brightly. Gemma walked down the aisle with her Dad to her extremely happy groom who was quite emotional as he looked at his bride. A lovely ceremony delivered by Tracey Walsh and to end it with the releasing of some butterflies. The day was lots of fun, heartfelt, and a wonderful first dance choreographed by Your First Dance Co to surprise the guests. Other shout outs go to: Jenna Mclean Make Up Artist, Brides to Be, Olivieri’s Florist for those stunning bouquets, fantastic MC and DJ from Tim from Timeless Weddings, Brad from Coastal Prestige for the photo booth and of course Rafferty’s Resort for their wonderful service and venue. 

Congratulations guys – wishing you both a beautiful life together.

Jason & Nicole – North Entrance SLSC: 15.6.19

I think fun is what most couples aspire to have on their wedding day. There can be a lot of stress organising such a big day and hopefully each couple just forget all the organising and enjoy it! This wedding was certainly all about catching up with family and friends and everyone having a wonderful time. You can tell by all the giggles Jason and Nicole did just that! There’s lots of laughing moments in these images and I truly think that is what a wedding is all about. It was great to be a part of this special day. 

After ten years they made it official! Congratulations Jason and Nicole and thanks for having me a part of this wonderful celebration.

Wade & Sarah – Tocal Homestead: 25.5.19

What can I say about this wedding? Absolutely beautiful in every way. So many moments filled with lots of love, a bride and groom who you couldn’t wipe the smiles from their faces if you tried. Fun, muck about pics but so many sweet moments between Sarah and Wade. A brilliant Autumn day (felt more like Spring) at this amazing venue they call Tocal Homestead – a wonderful place with stunning country views. A shout out to one of my faves Fiona Rogers for her hair and makeup talents and also conducting yet another heartfelt ceremony. Another one to Your First Dance Co – totally nailed the first dance to a Johnny Cash song. If you’re wondering about these amazing flowers – The Naked Florist is your girl!

Also, have a look at Sarah’s dress made by her very talented Mum Kerry. How special to have an original and absolutely gorgeous dress. And a shout out to Wade’s Mum Debbie for a wonderful wedding cake and that awesome stand that Wade made. 

I hope you enjoy this slideshow as much as I loved choosing the photos for it – it’s a bit long this one but I’m a terrible culler. I want to show all the love and happiness that was so obvious on Sarah and Wade’s special day. 

Congratulations and thank you for choosing me to be a part of it! I’m super lucky to be a part of all these awesome weddings.

Alex & Jade – Kangy Gardens: 14.5.19

My autumn weddings have been so lovely and this one was no exception! What a gorgeous midweek wedding for Alex and Jade who were married at Kangy Gardens. Let me just say – I am so impressed by this venue. My first wedding here, however I did check it out the week before with Jade and knew the colours would look absolutely stunning. This place really has so much to offer and if you’re looking for a venue – check it out!  Alex and Jade got married in the wonderful chapel like building made all official by celebrant Gabe, we did a few photos around the grounds and with their beautiful girls and finished it off with some family and friends photos. Everyone enjoyed a few beverages and canapes.  This was a short and sweet amount of coverage, but we packed in some great shots in the time we had. 

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Patterson!

Dayle & Dimity – Wyong Golf Club: 11.5.19

Who doesn’t love a surprise! Dayle and Dimity held their ‘engagement party’ on Saturday at the Wyong Golf Club – throw in a ceremony not long into the celebration and what do you know, you’re at a wedding! What a great way to do it. I met these two for some photos prior to the party. We got in the golf buggies and off we went around the course. Perfect weather at the best time to shoot. After an hour we headed back inside for a change of clothes for Dimity and guests started to arrive soon after. We did some photos with guests and shortly after Dimity disappeared to put her wedding dress back on. Meantime the celebrant arrived and announced to everyone that they were getting married. Lots of surprised faces! Dimity then walked back in escorted by her Dad. A lovely ceremony, followed by guest congratulations, family and friends photos, dinner and lots of celebrating. It was an awesome vibe and everything went perfectly to plan.  

Thanks for having me be a part of this super fun engagement/wedding!

Amanda & Sarah – Magenta Shores: 4.5.19

Magenta Shores was the backdrop to Amanda and Sarah’s beautiful wedding day. I started coverage from the ceremony and stayed to capture the formalities and of course the guests having a great time. What started off as a bit of a cloudy morning turned into the most beautiful autumn afternoon. After the ceremony we did some family photos and jumped in the carts for a quick session around the golf course as the sun was going down fast! 

Once again the room at Magenta looked absolutely stunning. 

Thank you Sarah and Amanda for having me a part of your day and after all these years of being together, I’m so happy that you two have made it official. 

My very best wishes to you both.
