This is a (very) small selection of weddings I've done lately. If you like what you see and want to have a chinwag, get in touch here.
harriette & huw
Clovelly Bowling Club, Sydney
Having already been together for the better part of a decade and already committed to a life together, whilst holidaying in Denmark Huw took Harriette to Noma - literally the world’s top restaurant - and then for reasons unbeknownst to well, even himself, proposed to her at the bus stop on the way back to their accomodation. This set the tone for the wedding, I feel, where beautiful, grand gestures were made but expectations of a typical wedding day were somewhat subverted.
It was a masterclass in doing it your own way. They are both creative in their own fashion…read more.
rochelle & anthony
Botanic Gardens Wedding
The afternoon evolved into a beautiful low-key garden party, with a late afternoon, mostly barefoot dance floor in the evening sun and kids racing each other across the lawn, before one of Rochelle’s guests surprised them both with an appearance by one of the founding members of Aussie rock band Ganggajang who played an acoustic version of This is Australia, one of Rochelle’s favourite songs. In the midst of a heritage colonial cottage…read more.
emma & matt
Gunners Barracks, Mosman
Emma is a teacher. She loves her job and is, by all reports, really freaking good at it. It’s a source of joy, of an immense satisfaction borne of a feeling of contributing to the development of young minds. It’s her dream. And she’s giving it up for a few years to move to New York with Matt, and fulfil his dream of living overseas with her by his side, of having a big adventure together before moving back home and starting a family together.
I learned about this during Matt’s speech towards the end of the night. Upon starting to relate this part of their story he immediately became…read more.
honey & jairo
Merribee House, Numbaa
These two have one of the best how did you meet stories I have heard in recent times. Out at a bar with friends one night Honey spotted Jairo across the way and thought he was cute. Sometime later they struck up a conversation which - due to Jairo’s recent arrival from Brazil and at the time very basic English - went something like this “Do you have a boyfriend?”, “No”, ' “Do you want?”, “..No”. Somehow Jairo convinced Honey to let him take her out to lunch the next day and told her he would pick her up, whereafter she ended up waiting at home for over three hours wondering where he was…read more.
morgan & sam
Cafe Morso, Sydney
Sometimes it takes a while to realise what's right in-front of you.
These two had been friends for years, part of the same close knit social circle, until one day they started being consistently the last two standing on nights out, and realised an unspoken mutual attraction - which remained unspoken for a while. Until one night, after both confessing their feelings to a friend before each other, they had a sneaky smooch before being driven to their home's by said friend and grabbing some drive-through on the way home. Each of them awoke the next day nursing a hangover and both a joy that it had finally happened, and fear that they had messed up a beautiful friendship...read more
sam & matt
Superintendent’s Residence, Centennial Park
Relationships can be defined by different characteristics. Some are intense and cerebral, some are quiet and comforting. These two, to me, are defined by a shared, unrestrained joy of being. I always actively try to make the photo-shoot part of the day an affirming experience, an addition to the day that you’ll fondly look back on as opposed to something you have to get through, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone have quite this much unadulterated fun as this.
That doesn’t say, however, that it wasn’t without depth of feeling. In between all the giddiness Matt had to pause multiple times throughout the ceremony to dry his eyes and catch his voice…read more.
Bec & todd
Kittyhawk, inner city Sydney
They both live, work, and play in the city - they share an amazing apartment down by the Quay, and so instead of heading to the Botanical Gardens, or Mrs Macquaries Chair, we went for a wander around this most beautiful of cities, telling stories and making some magic along the way...read more
jess & andy
Mereweather Lookout, Newcastle
What a freaking cracking Newcastle day. The ceremony took place on a hill overlooking Mereweather Beach, the sun just dipping down over the hills on the horizon as they were joined in front of those they love. The reception took place at The Lock Up, an incredible new art / event space in the Newcastle CBD.
First looks always make me happy. The look on Jess' face when she saw Andy for the first time was magic...read more
