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.

I hope these few teasers captured just a brief glimpse of what your day was all about.

More to come soon.

Southern Highlands Wedding – Jade and Sid – preview

Southern Highlands Wedding – Jade and Sid – Bendooley Estate, Berrima NSW

 

Southern Highlands Wedding Photography

 

Jade and Sid join together as one, on a breezy spring day, in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW.

You are two of the very loveliest humans I’ve met in a long time, such a pleasure to be around.

Your day was full of love, laughter, dancing, great food and wine, lots of kissing and thoughtful words being spoken all around. Your families were so extremely happy for you two to be spending the rest of your lives together, the tears showed it. I’m so glad you guys found each other, and I am so thankful that I was part of it all, I feel blessed. Jade, what a dress! Oh my you looked stunning!

So lets skip along to the story of the day now for a few sneaky pics.

Sid stands proudly at the amazing historic St. Francis Xavier chapel waiting for his bride to be Jade to join him. A very proud father walks Jade down the aisle to meet her man and gives Jade away, what a moment. What more could a Wedding Photographer hope for than a start like that in such a beautiful old church!

After an amazing ceremony, the party moved to the absolutely epic Bendooley Estate.

Jade and Sid and I managed to sneak off to take a few pics around the Estate, before we all joined their crew to celebrate on into the night.

You guys were blessed with a gorgeous spring day in wonderland. It sprinkled down for one short moment (what I think was God shedding a tear of happiness for you) then the sun shone on us for hours as we wandered around one of the best wedding venues in Australia. The sun went down and the sky was full of stars.

One truly memorable day. Thank you, thank you to you two!

For now here are a few teasers that caught my eye when browsing through the story of your day. Hope you like. More to come soon!

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Josh and Robyn

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Josh and Robyn – Earth House

 
Byron Bay Wedding Photography

Robyn and Josh married last weekend on a glorious day in paradise, two wonderful lovers and soulmates.

What more could a Byron Bay Wedding Photographer hope for!

Speaking of wonderful…

This was from Robyn and Josh after I thanked them the other day for having us along.

“Hi Matt,

Well, what can we say? Thank you seems inadequate but we sincerely thank yourself and Pete for your amazing effort last Saturday for our special day. You guys rocked! Thanks for making it easy for the both of us, because truth is we both hate photos (but love looking at them of course).

We hope you both enjoyed your day with us and we can’t wait to share your work with all our family and friends (and whoever will look or listen! Hehe).

Cheers Matt!

Robyn & Josh”

 

So here are Pete and I again, at this breathtaking Earth House place. Thank you Munro for everything you do, Earth House really is a slice of paradise (actually, I think I might just start calling you ‘Sir Munro’ from now on)!

BUT, this place is kinda EXTRA spesh to me…it’s where my sister Hannah and I photographed our first wedding together.

Hannah usually shoots along side me but has recently had a baby. He’s Tex. He’s very cute, I love him to bits…etc, etc. Tex is a bit little yet and so Hannah wasn’t with me on this day, but our good friend, celebrant, Katrina Holt, (sporting a baby bump herself) was. And with such memorable elegant words Katrina bound these two lovers together.

So a few little things like this, kinda gave me extra smiles on the day. Thanks Katrina!, Babies!, Babies all round!

 

Babies aside, I would really again like to thank my friend and confidant, Pete.  Your work is amazing, your support is priceless, plus you got me some photos a bit earlier than usual, hence being able to show off a few today!

Robyn and Josh, no, really, thank YOU, for allowing us to be a huge part of such a special day.

It is lovely, thoughtful, happy, thankful, and of course super cool humans like you guys, that not only make our jobs so very easy, but also incredibly satisfying and fulfilling.

Big thanks also to all your friends and families, what a great bunch of people!

 

I’ve decided to make this an extended teaser session, firstly to really say thanks again for those kind words you gave us, even before seeing any work we had done with you, and secondly also to show off some of Pete’s faves too.

Here’s a small bunch from the day, random choice for emphasis at times, others not so random! Enjoy!…and can I just say, “what a bloody great day you got married on hey!?”
