At the begining of November last year Mike and I made a trip up to Port Douglas for the wedding of my Dad’s only sister, Our Aunty Kerrie and her then husband to be Rod. It was such an awesome trip!
My Aunty Kerrie and Rod live in Melbourne. They love Port Douglas so much that they decided to formalise their relationship up there. It was quiet a hike for some of their guests but it was certainly worth it for them. It was such a gorgeous weekend in every way.
The wedding was held on the Sunday which was awesome as we spent the Saturday hanging out and doing touristy things around Port Douglas.
We started the day as per usual with preparation photos of both our Bride Kerrie and our groom Rod. Mike headed over to the boys and I spent the morning with my Aunty Kerrie and Cousin Lara and my Aunty’s best friend Trish. It was such a fun morning and was awesome to catch up with my Aunty during such a special time for her.
The wedding was held at the Ramada Resort which is only one street over from the famous 4 mile beach at Port Douglas. The ceremony was held in the same location as the reception. It was so beautiful overlooking the pond. We captured a few images of our gorgeous couple around the resort before heading back into the recepiton.
As you would all agree Aunty Kerrie looked beautiful! The dress suited her so much and the purple orchards were to die for … so exquisite! They accompanied the stress so well. Lara my youngest cousins on Dad’s side of the family looked beautiful in her bridesmaid dress as did Trish.
It was so lovely catching up with you all and such a pleasure to photograph your special day Aunty Kerrie. We will be down to visit soon… and can’t wait to catch up … So excited
Mike and I are going to be apologising for a little while yet.. We still haven’t finished blogging sessions from October. Guys we are sorry that it’s taken forever to share your special day. It’s been a very unsettling time… I hope that you enjoyed looking through your images over the Christmas break and that you really enjoyed Italy!!
Beck and Scott were married in Tamworth at St Nicolas church. We were excited to travel across to Beck and Scott’s wedding as we knew a few at their wedding and they are so sweet It was so awesome to catch up with you all!
We started our day with Scott and his boys! They were super organised and such a pleasure to photograph. Both Mike and I attended Beck and Scott’s wedding … We love shooting wedding together especially when we have such an awesome couple to capture. We loved the house Scott got ready in!! Thanks so much for organising such an awesome place.- Made for great photos. It was great to see Trent again also who was best man for Scott. We photographed Trent and Alana’s wedding in 2012.
Beck and her girls were getting ready at her family about 20mins away so after Mike and I finished with Scott and the boys we headed over to Beck. It was so awesome to catch up with Alana while we were at the girls. Both her and Trent were in the bridal party!!.
Beck looked amazing! Your dress was stunning and suited you so well! Both Mike and I had a great time capturing you getting ready … You were so excited and full of life and it reflects in the photos!! The time with the girls goes way to fast… There is always so much happening.
Mike and I headed into town slightly before the girls so we could capture the going ons on the church before Beck arrived. After the ceremony we did a group photo and family photos at the church before heading to our photo locations. We visited the old post office, King George Avenue before heading out to Tanengatta Vineyard. I love the vineyard it’s an awesome location for a wedding.
Thanks so much for an awesome day and being so good about us not sharing the photos on the blog sooner. Hope you are both well!!
Can’t believe how long ago Nicola and Mark’s wedding was! Time certainly flys. It feels like only yesterday I met with Nicola and Mark in Bello on a Sunday afternoon for their engagement session and already their wedding was a few months back.
Nicola and Mark are one of those couples that are super cute and are really sweet! I really enjoyed spending their special day with them. It was such a please sharing their day with them.
I started the day with Mark and his boys who got ready in the reosrt. The boys were so co-operative and we certainly had a good laugh! Boys you looked great and made for such an easy start to the day. I did feel rather bad for you though it was so hot with your suits on.
After capturing what I need to with the boys I made my way up to the girls. Nicola was beaming. She was very excited and Im sure a little nervous. The girls were so helpful in getting all the bits and pieces sorted for me so we could capture all the details or Nicola’s dress, shoes, flowers etc. I adored the simplicity of Nicola’s dress. It was so gorgeous and suited her so much!!
The ceremony was held at the betting Tee at Pacific Bay. The backdrop at the betting tee is beautiful. It was a warm day so it was a little struggle for the guests in the sun but everyone was so wonderful and co-operative particularly during family photos. Thanks so much to everyone
Nicola and Mark’s photos were taken on the resort grounds as well as charlesworth bay. So beautiful! It was an amazing day and Im sure it’s all Mark and Nicola dreamed it to be.
I Hope you are both well and life is treating you well. Sorry it’s taken forever to share your photos.
Finally Mike and I are working our way through our October shoots! Only a few more to go for October. Mel and Chris received their images already but it’s just taken us a while longer to blog their Engegement Session.
Mel and Chris are super cute to photograph! The Session was so easy… Lighting was perfect and couple easy going! We met Mel and Chris at Chris’ parent’s property in Bonville for the session. It made for a perfect backdrop for the images!
Loved this session was great fun! Im really looking forward to the wedding guys… Here are just a few images for your friends and family to see.
The wedding of Katherine and Matt was one that I have to admit was a lot of fun. From the location Katherine got ready before the ceremony to some of the location shoots out near the ‘Pavillion Function Centre’ it was a great day.
I started the day with the pre-wedding photos before heading to the Pavillion for the ceremony. The weather was beautiful, when we photographed this wedding it was in the middle of a real dry spell, not that we were complaining though, sure makes my job easier!!
After family photos we did some shots around the beatiful garden areas before heading to a few locations. A property with a cool dirt road, a hill with awesome long (and very brown) grass and King George Ave. Katherine and Matt allowed plenty of time for there shoot, and we were able to get some awesome shots.
Soon enough it was the reception, the cake cut, dance,etc. Thanks for having me photograph your day, I had a great time and am very happy with the result!!
It’s been a rather crazy few months for Mike and I. We are now recovering and catching up…..We have so many gorgeous weddings to blog … most of which have had their wedding images for months.
Way Back in October Heidi and Grant exchanged vows at the gorgeous Valla Beach. I started the day a Heidi’s fathers property were Grant and his boys were preparing for the ceremony… The boys were in charge of ensuring the wedding ceremony location was perfect for the arrival of our stunning bride. I was able to photograph some images of the boys getting ready amongst the chaos of the boys preparing for the ceremony.
It was soon time to head over to the girls who were getting ready at the Valla Beach Tourist Park. The girls were great fun. Full of excitement the girls were ready waiting for me to arrive. I photographed the girls dresses hanging, the shoes and flowers before the bridesmaids slipped their dresses on. Once our girls were ready they assisted our very sweet bride to put her dress on.
Valla Beach Hotrodes were waiting patiently outside the Cabin were Heidi was preparing for the ceremony to take the precious cargo to the ceremony. It was soon time for the girls to travel over to Heidi’s father’s property for the ceremony.
The ceremony was in a gorgeous location. It was located a the back of the property down near a dam… Such stunning location for a ceremony. After the ceremony we headed over for a group photo and then family photos. Most of the photos were done on the property… we only had a little time to do some photos near the resort.
The reception was awesome fun. It was held at the Woolshed at the Valla Beach Resort.
Here are just a few images from Heidi and Grant’s special day. We will post some more on facebook soon.
Sarah and Johnno had their beautiful Sawtell/Coffs Harbour wedding a little while back now, I’ve finally got a chance to do some blogging now!!
Johnno got ready at the Pacific Towers apartments in Coffs Harbour, right on the beach and with a stunning view of the coast, we did some groom prep shots. Sarah and Johnnos little girl Lucy was on hand getting ready, which made for some really cute shots.
After that it was time to photograph the girls, and then head out to the ceremony. The ceremony was held at Sawtell, right along the beach near the surf club. Unfortunately the wind was pretty crazy so the location had to be changed slightly last minute! A few metres back and we were mostly out of the wind so it was all good!
‘Married By Sam’ did a great job looking after the ceremony for our happy couple. Sarah and Johnno did have a big wedding, a lot of guests their, so straight after the ceremony we went into a group photo and family portraits. After that it was a few shots of the bridal party, our couple, etc around the beach before we headed to a nice little spot on the way out of Coffs Harbour that was sheltered from the elements and offered a nice country backdrop.
Once this was done we headed to the reception at the Coffs Harbour Yacht Club.
Here are a few pics!
