AMY + MATT

WEDDINGS

Far out… where do I start? This wedding was FUN, laid back, and sweet. All day I heard Amy say to people ‘just do you’ and I totally love that. Their wedding was 110% about them and that’s how it should be.
They wrote their own vows-Matt’s were a little short and a tad funny but his speech made up for that; there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
I love hearing all the stories about this pair, totally hilarious. Like the ‘poo bush’.
I won’t say no more. Take a scroll through and re-live their day through my eyes.

JESSIE + ROBERT

WEDDINGS

These guys are super cute, madly in love and truck loads of fun!
I headed off to Trundle for their wedding, if you haven’t heard of it…it is a groovy little town with a population of a few hundred…The town is known for its unusually wide main street- At 60 metres, it is one of the widest main streets in the country. It needed to be as wide as this to accommodate turning bullock-trains. The Trundle Hotel also claims the second longest hotel balcony in New South Wales at 86 metres! ( enjoy those fun facts off trusty Wikipedia? LOL)
Awaiting Jessie’s arrival Robert was looking nervous and told me he had never been to a wedding and was super pumped for his to be the first, once he turned and seen Jessie (who looked like a total goddess) he cried and laughed at the same time-so sweet!

The bridal party were all so fun and kept me entertained, thanks for the fun in Trundle Mr & Mrs Boyd!

RENEE + GAVIN

WEDDINGS

When a Pommy falls for an Aussie ❤ these guys are perfect for each other, always giggling and just loving life together!
I used to work with Renee back in our Maccas days, she has always been a genuine relaxed person and their day was just that- genuine + relaxed.
Gavin asked Renee to be his girlfriend four years ago at Mayfield Gardens, they returned from the UK to tie the knot in the same spot, it was pure bliss.
Every moment included a laugh, especially by all the guests when Renee was starring at Gavin so intently she blocked the celebrant out whom she was meant to be repeating her vows after (LOL)
I hope all those in the UK that couldn’t make it, can re-live their day through these images.

Beneath some beautiful trees in a intricate garden they said their I do’s for the second time (if this makes no sense to you then you really should go and check out our previous blog post of their first wedding).

LOU + GARRY

PORTRAITS, WEDDINGS

I could write a novel about this wedding….but I wont. I hope my images tell the story well enough.
I got a phone call from Lou the afternoon before, her Mum was in ICU at Orange hospital and not looking so well. My heart sank…they moved their July 14th wedding forward so her family could be together and her mum could be present at their wedding. It is every girls dream to have their mum there, watching them marry the love of their life!

There was so many smiles, so so many tears and a hospital full of excited nurses. It was perfect. I cried, they cried, the celebrant cried, beautiful moments. A bittersweet time.
Lou’s mumma made sure her wishes were known and that Lou + Garry still HAVE to have their original day too, with or without her there.
A day about love. Perfect. ❤
Wedding two to come….and you’ll be SOOOO pleased to know that Lou + Garry got to have Mumma bear at THE ACTUAL WEDDING and her health has improved ❤ blessed.

ALI + SAM

WEDDINGS

 

The couple of days leading up to Ali & Sam’s wedding it was overcast, freezing cold and raining, luckily enough on their special day the sun came out to play! Ali kept me updated with the weather forecast for about a week, to say she was pleased with no rain was an understatement.
Both beautiful families that came together to celebrate this magical love story which I learnt all about (5 different versions of it) throughout the entertaining speeches.

The story I took away from it all was that Ali and Sam dated on and off in year 7, 8, 9, 10 and again in year 11 and it wasn’t until they met up again later after finishing school that their love really blossomed.
The party kicked on at IKON in Parkes; there was live music, dancing around a fireplace, grazing boards, singing and so many laughs.

I hope my images tell some of their remarkable story.
