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.

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.

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.

Josh & Jody – Cedar Brush Creek: 27.4.19

What a top day with Josh and Jody on Saturday. These guys hired two lovely properties at Cedar Brush Creek which is out past Yarramalong. I felt like I wasn’t even on the Central Coast anymore. I’d sussed it out the day before and knew it was going to be a fabulous location for a wedding. I started off with Josh at Knottapharm (the location of the ceremony and reception), then headed a little up the road to Jody at a gorgeous cottage where her and the girls were getting ready. Josh arrived soon after for a first look and took the girls to the ceremony in his pride and joy – a Ford Ranchero. A lovely ceremony conducted by celebrant Brad Tyler-Webber who was also MC for the evening and did a fabulous job. We headed back to the cottage for bridal party photos but with the sun going down quick we took off down the road for some shots with the last bit of afternoon sun which was just perfect. 

The reception was in a fab Teepee, fires were going surrounded by hay barrels – it was truly a great country wedding with a terrific bridal party, lovely family and friends and it was great to be a part of it. So much fun was had!

Luke & Paige – Yarramalong Valley Farmstay: 6.4.19

Two weddings for me this weekend. Saturday saw Luke and Paige become a Mr and Mrs Burns. My first time shooting at Yarramalong Valley Farmstay and what a fabulous ‘all in one’ wedding venue it is. Accommodation for the bride and groom to get ready, a ceremony amongst nature and a huge barn for a great reception with plenty of room to roam around, sit on the grass, listen to some music and party the afternoon away. A great arbour for photos of the guests. It was such a relaxing vibe with perfect weather to be outdoors. 

Congratulations and thanks for having me capture the day.

Marc & Daina – La Fiamma Ettalong: 23.3.19

What a wedding! A gorgeous day for Daina and Marc who married at Ettalong on Saturday with a huge celebration at La Fiamma. I haven’t been here before and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Half undercover and half outside with lovely festoon lights and lanterns. We had a little bit of rain which added to the atmosphere and I had to get the newlyweds out for a quick dance. A great band to provide the entertainment who had absolutely no problem getting the guests up dancing and even a little dance off with the guys and girls! It was a wedding with lots of laughs, tears of happiness, heartfelt speeches, and a very proud big sister. A wonderful bridal party offering support to the bride and groom and made the day lots of fun. 

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Tarring – I hope you absolutely LOVE your sneak peak.
