Lovedale Wedding Hunter Valley – Matika & Joe

Lovedale Wedding Hunter Valley

 Lovedale was the location for Martika & Joe’s fabulous Hunter Valley wedding. We started the day off shooting at Martika’s parents house in Rutherford. The girls were just finishing up hair and makeup as we arrived. After spending a lovely morning with the girls we headed straight over to the chapel at Lovedale to catch up with the boys before the ceremony. The boys arrived in the biggest ute that I have ever seen! They needed a step ladder just to get up into the tray. I can see this vehicle being very popular for weddings.
Monty King conducted a beautiful service inside the chapel and then afterwards we stayed onsite for photos. The grounds are beautiful at Lovedale so there is no need to head off anywhere else for photos.  Mother nature also looked after us that night producing a beautiful sunset just for Martika and Joe. Thank you guys for a fabulous day we loved every minute x

Scottish Wedding Hunter Valley – Lochlan & Allie

Scottish Wedding Hunter Valley

It’s been a long time since we have photographed a Scottish wedding so I was thrilled when Lochlan & Allie booked me to capture their special day. We started the day photographing Lochlan and the boys getting ready at a stunning little cottage that was part of Hunter River Retreat. I loved all the Scottish details that I got to photograph and didn’t the boys look fabulous in their kilts. After spending the morning with the boys we met up with Allie and the girls at Harringan’s Irish Pub. The girls looked amazing, Allie in a stunning soft pink wedding dress and the girls in gold sequin dresses. The ceremony was held at the Hunter Valley Gardens chapel. The sound of Bagpipes welcomed Allie and the girls right up to the front doors of the chapel setting the scene for everyone inside. Phil Greentree conducted a very special service honouring many of the traditional customs that are part of a Scottish wedding ceremony. It was a very dark overcast afternoon so we made really good use of the light we had left for some beautiful photos around Hunter Valley Gardens. Before we heading into the Garden Terrace for the reception we had a play in the dark and the rain to create some beautiful romantic night shots. Thank you Lochlan and Allie for a truly wonderful day we loved being a part of it.

Autumn Wedding Central Coast – Glen & Amy

Autumn Wedding Central Coast

Glenn and Amy didn’t want a big fancy wedding. So instead they tied the knot at home with Kate from Celebrate with Kate. I then met up with them later that afternoon to capture some beautiful memories for them. Amy and Glenn wanted a more country, autumn colour feel for the photos and I found the perfect spot for them. To finish up we then headed down to the lake for some sunset shots. It was FREEZING down there! Amy was such a trooper, she was totally covered in goosebumps but determined to get some great photos. It was a good excuse to get all cuddly and close for the shots. Thanks guys, so thrilled to be a part of your special day. x

Seacliff House Wedding – Gerringong – Gary & Rebecca

Seacliff House Wedding Gerringong

Road trip wedding down the South Coast to Seacliff House in Gerringong for Gary & Bec’s beautiful wedding day. I was super excited for their big day as we had also photographed Bec’s sister Georgia’s wedding a couple of years ago. Seriously I’m so lucky to be invited back to photograph siblings I must be doing a good job! lol. I loved how relaxed and laid back the whole day was. The boys and girls all shared the main house and got ready together. I could see straight away why Gary & Bec chose Seacliff House for their wedding. What a stunning venue with the most beautiful views. It’s like being in the middle of the country but with beach views, and with all of Bec’s beautiful boho themed styling it looked fabulous. I couldn’t believe it when I found out that Bec’s mum made her wedding dress! Seriously what a talented woman you are Debbie. With Bec being pregnant as well it worked out so well with having to amend the dress right up to the last minute. I also have to mention the amazing dance that Bec and her bridesmaids did after her speech. All the girls got up and did a beautifully choreographed dance for Gary. Not wanting to be left out the boys did their own human pyramid while the crowds cheered on. What a night guys. It was so good catching up with everyone including three other couples that we had photographed. We are seriously becoming part of the family. Thank you so much for sharing your big day with us x

Green Point Reserve Wedding – Lake Macquarie – Delyce & Brodie

Green Point reserve wedding Belmont

You might remember Delyce & Brodie from their gorgeous love shoot that included their beautiful fur baby Zoe. They picked the most beautiful location to get married on the shores of Lake Macquarie at Green Point Reserve. We had the most spectacular afternoon and the best light for photos. Celebrate with Kate did a beautiful job on the ceremony and I loved that Delyce wore her mum’s wedding veil to walk down the aisle. After the ceremony we didn’t have to travel anywhere for photos the reserve was just perfect. The reception was held at the Belmont 16’s just a minute drive down the road. Thank you so much Delyce and Brodie for a truly beautiful day, we loved being a part of it. x

Equine Portrait Photographer – Hayley & Donny

This very last minute shoot came about as Hayley just found out that she had to give her gorgeous boy Donny back to his original owners. Hayley had put many hours into Donny and built a truly special bond that only a horse lover can understand. Donny taught Hayley so much and she has only grown from this experience and is ready to apply it all again to a new four legged friend. This was a really special shoot and I feel so privileged that I got to capture the last couple of special moments these two had together.
