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.
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.
simone & joel
Porteño, Surry Hills Wedding
As always, it’s the little differences that go a long way.
Simone and Joel got ready at the same house in Redfern, before Joel went off to the pub for a few cheeky pre-ceremony beers with his family and some mates. Simone had both her parents and both her nieces walk her down the aisle, because some gendered traditions don’t make a whole lot of sense anymore. They had no official bridal party and just hung out with some of their closest friends and family before the ceremony while getting ready…read more.
MARTYNE & DAVE
Centennial Parklands, Sydney
Typical boy meets girl story. Girl see's boy wearing double denim on a dating app and rewards the bold, fashion-forward thinking with a hello. Fast forward a few conversations and catch ups and the two were donning full-body lycra and galavanting around Centennial Park on their bicycles (a passion they found out they share is pushing themselves beyond their limits of endurance - both have completed multiple triathlons). Maybe not so typical...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
BELLE & MATT
Seclusions Blue Mountains Wedding
Both from Sydney and it’s surrounds but impatient to properly start their lives together, Belle and Matt up and moved to Perth a few years ago to escape the big city lifestyle. Now they have a house, a rescue dog, a garden, and endless hikes and long stretches of undeveloped coastline all around them, something which makes them both very happy. They haven’t looked back since..read more.
madz & kurtis
Mulla Villa, Hunter Valley
A boy fancies a girl at his stereotypical teenage workplace, but she doesn't seem to know he exists. Finding himself on his last day before he leaves for good, at a loss and desperate to make contact, he calls a friend in search of advice. Taking what he's given, he walks up to the girl and asks "Hey, do you know where the men's underwear is?", a question to which he already knew the answer...read more
em & jonny
Royal National Park, Sydney
This was a textbook example of doing things your own way, of eschewing tradition and embracing the aspects of a wedding day that mean something to you. Both living in Hong Kong, they don't get a chance to see all the people they care about all that often and so they decided to do a first look and get a bunch of the photos done early before hanging out with their guests, drinking champagne and eating canapes for half an hour with everyone before gathering for the ceremony. Far from detracting from the big moment of everyone seeing Em for the first time walking down the aisle, or lessening the impact of the big emotive embraces that came after they were formally declared husband and wife, it simply served to highlight that the two of them valued the people around them more than they valued tradition for its own sake...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
