Laura and Haydn knew each other back from school. Once they finished school, they crossed paths regularly at after work drinks and house parties.
Slowly, their friendship blossomed into Love.
Laura and Haydn chose the stylish Fig Tree Restaurant for their location. After a roller-coaster ride of a morning, Ben Carlyle, their calm and collected celebrant, kept the spirits high as the rain sprinkled down upon everyone.
Heart felt vows were spoken. There were tears all around. It was all then sealed with one hell of a kiss!. And Laura and Haydn were married. These two were meant to be one.
We saw the sun was about to come out so we drove out to a gorgeous little spot up on a big hill in nearby Coorabell. This was one epic photo session, the mist sitting in the valleys, below an intense golden sunset.
Haydn, you were looking very stylish, in your Tom James royal blue suit, no doubt. It was noticeable that you were barely able to take your eyes off your gorgeous new wife the whole time!
Thank you to you both, for such a great day, for inviting us to come along on your adventure.
Our day then turned into night and everyone enjoyed lots of beautiful food and wine. It continued long into the night, with dancing to tunes, by musician Oscar Richardson.
I would also like to send big thanks to my partners there taking amazing pics with me on the day. To the lovely Kate Holmes, and to my awesome sister Hannah, thank you for your talent and support.
Also, hats off to the team at Byron Bay Weddings for putting on such an amazing event.
There wiil be more to come of this stunning day very soon, but for now, we hope you enjoy these.
The Fig Tree Restaurant is one fabulous Byron Bay venue, if you have an upcoming wedding. There is also a great feature article that we recently wrote on some other top Byron Bay wedding venues HERE. It’s worth a peep, no doubt.
As a Byron Bay Wedding Photographer it doesn’t get more amazing than the day Joanne married Mike, on Clarkes Beach in Byron Bay.
We had sun, clouds, rain, sun, sunset, waves, magic light, these two are blessed.
The always charismatic Ben Carlyle kept the spirit high as the rain came down in the ceremony. Everyone held strong though and the clouds passed.
We took a stroll down the beach for a few pics after the ceremony. We managed to find some rocks with the waves crashing in the background, it made for a stunning backdrop.
After the sunset, everyone partied the night away at Beach, Mike strutting his skills on the guitar.
It was all one epic rollercoaster ride. Jo and Mike, thanks for having Hannah and I along on your day in Byron Bay.
More to come soon.

I love Byron so much, I long to be there so I can truly tell myself I am a Byron Bay Wedding Photographer.
I get down there a lot though, so I’m close!?
Well Pete Oakman, my partner in crime, and I got down, and back to the epic Earth House last weekend. The sweetest lovebirds Amelia and Chris were married, under the fig tree, on a just beautiful Byron Bay sunny winters day….What a Kiss!!
These two Met on tinder! They fell in love with each others love of travel, snow, good times and great food. 3 and a half years and a kitty cat named Rosie later, now they are together forever.
Thank you for such a wonderful day guys.
I hope these few teasers keep you excited for whats to come soon.
Thanks once again to Munro for the perfect venue, 100 Mile Table for the mouth watering food, the always smiling Cara Gallagher for the beautifully spoken ceremony, the girls from The Events Co for a perfectly co-ordinated day, the boys from McGee Entertainment for the awesome tunes and Wilderness Flowers for the mind blowing flowers! There is just so much talent in the Byron Shire. *love*
Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – James and Brooke – Earth House
Just looking at Brooke all I saw was smiles, they were there from the moment I walked into see the girls, and they did not stop all day and night – Have a look, seriously!
Brooke’s insanely gorgeous gown is by Leah Da Gloria. WOW, I’ve rarely seen a dress suit a woman so perfectly.
I have always been amazed by beautiful dresses, they really are pieces of art in themselves.
The elegant and subtle rose bouquets, and the unique ceremony floor, are by another Byron Bay super wonder, The French Petal.
James wears a custom suit by InStitchu, he just matched Brookes elegance perfectly. James is a very lovely man too, he is such a pleasure to be around.
That is just James and Brooke, elegance, they are matched perfectly.
The words they speak together, about each other, and the emotion from all their loved ones at the reception speeches, I’ll openly admit creates a feeling of humbleness in me.
James and Brooke will be happy together forever.
I also feel privileged every time I am invited back to The Earth House. Thank you to everyone for making it happen for me again, so much love to you all!
A huge thanks to my good friend and superb Photographer, Pete Oakman. Pete helped out on the day when my very pregnant sister Hannah was not able to make it along.
The following Byron vendors are also fabulous. Thanks for bringing Brooke and James’ day together.
We are also looking forward to seeing some screenplay of the day that was captured by Videographer – Gold Bear Wedding Films
It was lovely to get back to the stunning Victoria’s at Ewingsdale last weekend, a Byron Bay Wedding Photographer dreamscape.
The weather was full of character, sun, clouds, rain, lots more rain. But Ben and Alanna embraced the day and there wasn’t a moment when they didn’t have smiles on their faces.
These two are in Love.
Mostly, Alanna did well to hold back extreme tears as she said her vows to Ben, although there were a few. Ben just gazed at her with so much love.
We found some shelter from the rain on the Victoria’s grounds for a few romantic snaps before we headed off to the beach to celebrate.
The reception was at the funky Belongil Bistro in Byron. The food was beautiful. We snuck out onto Belongil Beach over the road for a couple of photos of just the two of them and some time to themselves as newlyweds.
Everyone drank and chatted and danced the night away.
It was one wonderful day. Thanks to everyone for having me along to be a part of such a celebration of love and romance.
Just a couple of teasers for now to keep up the suspense until the rest come very soon.
