The gods must have had a tough night before Candy and Ruffy’s big day. Pete and I drove down from QLD through bush-fires, sweltering heat and with the prediction of 50km/h winds the next day, we were braced for a crazy day.

Well it was one crazy day, but the force was strong!
Here’s a few elements to give you an idea.

Coffs Harbour Wedding – Alex and Rachel – a few frames

Coffs Harbour Wedding – Alex and Rachel at Villa Vivanté

 

Last weekend Rachel and Alex were married in a very beautiful part of the world, up in Villa Vivanté, a stunning spot all the way up on the top of the Coffs Harbour hilltops.

Along side them were their two beautiful little girls, gum-nut babies!

Rachel and Alex chose a first look up at the Villa. Alex was in shock as his stunning bride Rachel walked down the stairs to him.

We were able to sneak away down to the beach for a couple of pics, just the two of them in their lovely space, with each other.

We then headed back up to the Villa for the very emotional ceremony, touching and charismatic words by Alison Bartlett.

…and then of course, a huge party that went all night long.

 

Thank you, Rachel and Alex, for the privilege of being able to be a part of your epic day in paradise.

More of the whole wedding, and some of the best Coffs Harbour wedding photography I have seen, will be coming your way very soon, but for now a no doubt eagerly awaited few pics of the day.

Country wedding in Dubbo NSW – Mick and Amy

Country wedding in Dubbo NSW – Mick and Amy – a few frames

 

It was “LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” for these two when they met.

Amy was working with explosives, and Mick was a driller.

Mick couldn’t talk to Amy for a whole year, he was just too shy, despite Amy’s efforts! He would walk away from her!

They slowly saw how much they were alike, that they adored each others qualities, and eventually became good buds.

Mick called Amy “the bomb chick!”

When Mick was forced to move to the other side of the country for work, it got to them both, they couldn’t live without each other.

Amy chased him all the way to W.A.

The rest is history. The epic backyard party in the super friendly country town of Dubbo NSW was a party I will not forget.

My whole trip and my experience with these wonderful bunch of people, is something I am very thankful for.

Amy and Mick, it’s still explosive, as much as I can see love can be.

…and as for the drilling…

 

Hope these few keep you keen for a while until more come soon.

Thank you for letting me be a part of such a memorable day, and weekend.

 

…Also, everyone keep an eye out for dinosaurs around here, they may pop up at any time!

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Brett and Kirsty – teasers

 

It was a romantic rainy day in paradise the day Kirsty and Brett were married, their gorgeous kids aside them all the way, with

There was lots of emotional tears all around, the rain made it such an intimate gathering.

The Earth house in Clunes, Byron Bay gave us a spectacular backdrop with clouds rolling through the valleys off in the distance.

Kirsty wore a stunning Grace Loves Lace dress and her elegant and very fragrant Bouquet was by the talented French Petal. The energy was high as the rain came down, thanks to the always charismatic Ben Carlyle.

Everyone dined on lovely food by The Fig Tree and danced the day away to great tunes by North Coast Entertainment.

Thank you guys and also to all your friends and families, for having Pete and I along on such a wonderful day.
