Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Chris and Amelia – Earth House

 

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.

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – James and Brooke – just a hint

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – James and Brooke – Earth House

 

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!

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Ben and Alanna – a few frames

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Ben and Alanna – a few frames

 

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.

Alanna’s gorgeous two piece gown is by Pina Fiorenza and a special thanks to the celebrant Chiquita Mitchell for such a lovely ceremony.

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.

Destination Pre-wedding Engagement Session Australia – Dennis and Michel

Destination Pre-wedding Engagement Session Australia – Dennis and Michel

 

A tale of two lovebirds and their journey to Australia

 

This is the beautiful story of Dennis and Michel from Hong Kong.

These two lovebirds started their unique lifelong journey together back in Hong Kong, over their mutual love of sports. Dennis and Michel’s thirst for adventure brought them all the way to Australia for their pre-wedding celebrations. They mentioned that they scoured through a LOT of photographers before they both finally fell in love with our work. What an honour!

The Light Pictures crew took the adorable young couple on a 6 hour adventure, through Brisbane city, Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and to Hastings Point Lookout, Casuarina in Northern NSW.

What we weren’t expecting was for Dennis to throw on his “Magua”(His actual wedding suit for the wedding) and Michel her “Qungua” (the traditional name for the two-piece dress for the bride), these are the same ones they will be married in, in September in Hong Kong.

Then there was the very cute “Chen signature” matching mouth mask props (that they take with them everywhere) for a bit of a laugh, brilliant!

So how did these two meet?

 

“It has been said that maybe god wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet that person, we will know how to be grateful.

An ordinary question in the workplace sparked an extraordinary love story. Why do you stay back so late?

Michel and I love sports. Every time I got hurt, she is the one who would accompany me to the hospital. Michel is the most frank and well organised person that I have ever met and knows how to comfort me when I’m in a bad mood.

So after dating for six months, Dennis made his proposal to Michel.

It was quite embarrassing, the day I made my proposal. It was the lantern festival and she worked the whole day long. Michel told me that she would love to go home as soon as possible. So very frankly, I said that I had planned to make my proposal to her that night.

After that, she said, Well. Take your time then.

We might not be a perfect match, but we are willing to sacrifice for each other.”

 – Dennis Chan

Hastings Point Lookout – Casuarina

 

The sun was setting fast so we made a small trek up to the headland above Cabarita beach. Before long the entire sky was filled with thick storm clouds.

The dark looming clouds above our heads reminded me that being in love also has its storms, but if we can just hold on tighter then we will surely see the silver lining. Indeed these clouds above had created the perfect contrast for our epic surprise Kimono photoshoot!

Final words, and thank-you

 

It’s not every day that Light Pictures get to shoot a sweet international traveling couple like Dennis and Michel, especially when they came over here just for our little adventure.

We hope that we have truly captured the most important memories for you both, so that they will bring you, your friends, your family, much joy, reflection, and excitement building up to your BIG day and beyond!

THANKYOU and we hope to see you in Australia again soon..

Matt, Damien and Hannah.

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Mark and Stephie – a few frames..

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Toowoomba Wedding – Mark and Stephie

 

What a way to finish the year, with a New Years Eve wedding!

Stephie and Mark married each other out in the stunning Gabbinbar Estate in rural Brisbane, Toowoomba.

Such romance and excitement. Stephie was doing nervous squats most of the time right up until she climbed into that stunning dress.

There were clouds, sunshine, then rain, the perfect amount of romance the gods could cram into one day.

Proud father in arm lock, Steph walked down the aisle with the hugest grin on her face. Mark was awe-struck….and fair enough, Stephie was glowing with excitement and looked just stunning!

They said their emotional with a touch of giggles vows, kissed, were showered with rose petals as they walked back down the aisle, then rode off on a horse drawn carriage to take in the beauty of the estate and have some time for them, as a couple that just became one.

When they returned they drink champagne, play croquet, then partied the night away in style with amazing food, wine and live music.

There were fireworks at midnight welcoming in 2018, and them into their new life together as husband and wife. Stephs dad, with tear in eye, hugged his daughter so tightly…under a sky full of light.

The day and night was one I will never forget.

Thanks for having me and my insatiable 2nd shooter Pete along on your New Years Eve rollercoaster ride in the beautiful Toowoomba, what a pleasure and an honour!

Here are a handful of my picks of the day.

Many more to come soon.
