Some of you may remember Michelle and Ben from their stunning engagement session at the Coffs Harbour Jetty last year. They were such a gorgeous couple and I had been looking forward to photographing their wedding for a while.
Towards the end of last year I had the privilege of attending their wedding and capturing their memories. I arrived at Aanuka and headed over to one of the Villa’s were the boys were preparing. I adored the boys hipster suits! Well done in seeking these out! They were great. The girls looked so beautiful. Michelle you looked stunning, your dress was amazing, your hair perfect and the flowers accompanied very well.
The preparation time goes so fast and it was so time for us all to make our way to the lawns at Aanuka. The lawns make for a beautiful and romantic backdrop for a wedding. Michelle looked incredible and Ben was dazzled when she walked down the aisle. The ceremony was performed by Cindy Pocock. Cindy as usual did a beautiful job! She is such a sweet lady.
Following the ceremony we tackled family photos next to the lagoon at Aanuka and then stayed on the grounds for their photo session. The reception was held in the breakers room. The reception was alot of fun.
Thanks so much for sharing your special day with us. Here are just a few images from your day.
Not too long ago now I shared the most beautiful and amazing day with Courtnee & Jason at the beautiful Opal Cove Resort in Coffs Harbour. The weather was beautiful and everything was just perfect for this stunning couple to celebrate their special day. :-)
I started the day with Courtnee in the morning to grab a few photos of the girls getting their hair and makeup done and then I headed back in the afternoon to start their wedding coverage. Jason and his boys were super organised and looked awesome. I absolutely loved the poker-dot bow ties!! They were super cute. Navy and brown are two of my favorite colours together. Boys you looked great.
Both Courtnee and Jason got ready in the apartments at the front of the resort so made it really easy to go between the two apartments for photos. When I arrived at the girls I started by capturing some of the details that made up Courtnee’s appearance. The flowers were perfect, your dress amazing and the bridesmaids dress were beautiful.
The ceremony was held on the lawn overlooking the lagoon at Opal Cove. Margret and Peter from special occasions did such a beautiful job at decorating the ceremony and the drinks station was a great touch.
The ceremony was followed by family photos and then the photo session. Courtnee and Jason, thank you so much for sharing your day with us. We loved every minute and it meant a lot to us to be able to capture your special memories. Although you have had your images for some time I still wanted to share these few images with everyone. I just love them.
I made a trip over to Port Macquarie a few weeks back to photograph the beautiful wedding of Steph and Dylan. As always we started the photos doing the groom prep and then on to the lovely bridesmaids and of course the bride.
Steph and the girls all looked stunning for their photos, the bridal prep was so relaxed and everyone seemed to be simply having a good time. Sure enough though it was time to head over to the ceremony.
Steph and Dylan picked a nice little spot on the beach, sheltered by the dunes and with a great view of the lighthouse in the background. Once finished it was time for the family photos, of which the families were very accommodating.
The photo shoot too was fun and we were able to get many nice and intimate images of our happy couple.
Once the reception started it was time to kick back and enjoy the night. Thanks for having me as part of your day! Here are a few photos from their big day!
Last month I had the privilege of attending the wedding of Alison and Tom. I started the day with Tom and his boys who were preparing for the ceremony in East Melbourne. When I first met Tom and Alison earlier in the year I don’t think Tom was overly excited about having his photo taken, but he did good and we got some awesome images.
After capturing Images of Tom I headed over to Alison who was in Richmond preparing with her gorgeous bridesmaids and Tom and Alison’s little ones, Eve and Jimmy! I must say they are little cuties and they both loved the camera.
Alison’s dress was beautiful and the girls dresses were stunning :-) The bouquets were beautiful! Alison did such a good job putting everything together.
It was soon time to head over to the church were Alison and Tom would exchange vows. Tom’s Uncle married our gorgeous couple. After the ceremony we took a few family photos before heading just around the church grounds for photos.
It was such an awesome day and was made rather relaxed by the fact we didn’t have to travel once we arrived at the church. The photos and reception were all within walking distance of the church.
Thanks so much for a really enjoyable day. I wish you both the best for your future together.

A little while ago now the gorgeous Alison and Andrew were married in Coffs Harbour at the Bonville Golf Resort! Both Mike and I attended the wedding!
I started the day with Alison and her girls who were getting ready in Alison’s parents home! It was a beautiful Atmosphere at the girls!! I thought it was really special that Alison’s younger brother with the help of her dad flew home from UK to surprise Alison on her wedding day!!! Good Job boys!- I think Alison was super excited but Mum was particularly overjoyed!!
While I was capturing the happenings of Alison getting ready Mike was over with Andrew and his boys!! They looked like they had an awesome time :-)
The ceremony was held in the rainforest at Bonville Golf Resort! The rainforest is such an amazing place to be married! The tall trees and the soft light make for such a romantic location.
After the ceremony family photos and a group photos were taken in the rainforest before heading around the resort for photos!! The reception was held on the terrace lawns and the flooded gums resturant.
Thank you for sharing your day with us both! We had an awesome time and we wish you both the best for your future together :-)
Here are just a few photos from the day :-)

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of Jess and Toby at the beautiful Aanuka Beach Resort. It started off as a humid but pleasant Day. I visited Toby and his groomsmen Shane first and captured a few images of them getting ready. Before long it was time to head over to where Jess, Kira and Little Jasper were preparing for the ceremony.
Jess was so excited when I arrived to be finalising her preparations before the ceremony. Jess looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to start photographing her preparation photos.
The ceremony was held on the Lawns at Aanuka Beach Resort and was preformed by Cindy Pocock. The ceremony was so beautiful but towards the end of the ceremony it started pouring and we had to make a quick dash for the varendas at Aanuka for shelter. Cindy quickly got things in order to finalise the ceremony once everyone was out of the weather. Jess, Toby and their guests did really well to keep a sense of humor while the storm passed.
Once the ceremony was completed under the balcony at Aanuka we then did family photo here also while we waited for the weather to pass. Thankfully it passed quickly and we we able to capture some gorgeous images of Toby and Jess at Aanuka and on Diggers beach. The beach is a very special part of Toby and Jess’ life so it was important that we were able to spend the time capturing images for them on the beach.
Thanks for an awesome day guys and thanks so much for being great about the weather as it did make things a little challenging for you both.
Here are just a few images from your gorgeous day. Ill put some more on facebook shortly!
A few weeks ago now I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of Cassie and Aaron at Aanuka Beach Resort in Coffs Harbour. Aanuka is a beautiful beach side resort that is very seasoned in hosting weddings.
Some of you may remember Cassie and Aaron from Alana and Trent’s wedding a few years back. Alana and Aaron are siblings. It was so good to catch up with you both Alana and Trent and I hope that the birth of your little one goes well! We are so happy for you both :-)
I started the day with Aaron and the groomsman. There were super organised which made my job rather easy. It didn’t take too long at all to capture a few images of the boys before heading over to Cassie and her girls where it was all happening!
Cassie you looked beautiful. The girls did an awesome job doing your hair and makeup. You dress was so beautiful and the girls too.
The ceremony was held on the lawn at Aanuka Beach Resort. Cindy did a beautiful ceremony which was then followed by family photos. The family photos were so easy- I think everyone was trained from Alana and Trent’s wedding.
We had a nice amount of time for photos so we were able to capture images at both Aanuka Beach Resort and the Coffs Harbour Jetty.
Cassie and Aaron selected a beautiful team to be around them for their wedding day and it made for a perfect day. Thank you for trusting us with your wedding day. It was a real pleasure to share your day with you.
