Melissa and Chris had an awesome wedding a few weeks back now. It was on such a beautiful day, and the venue was the amazing Bonville Golf Resort. We started with the photos of the boys and the girls getting ready first and then headed to the resort where the rest of the wedding was to be held.
The ceremony was held on the terrace lawn overlooking the beautifully landscaped golf course. The sun was just peeking through the trees giving us some incredible light to work with. It was an intimate ceremony and so full of emotion, I have to admit I loved getting the shots of Melissa’s granddad who was just so happy on the day.
We shot around some of the great locations in the golf buggies at the resort including the rainforest where many ceremonies are held.
The Reception was in the Classic room, and was a lot of fun, the meals were great, the speeches, and the dancing was good too!
Heres a few pics! Enjoy!
During March I travelled up to Bek and James’ wedding in Armidale. Armidale has a special place in the heart of Bek and James as it was were Bek grow up and it’s were Bek’s parents live!!
I really enjoyed photographing this wedding it was very quirky and cute!! I started the day with James and his 3 groomsman, Chris, Dom and Adrian who were preparing for the ceremony in the Peterson’s guesthouse. The rooms at the guesthouse are stunning and was a great place to photograph the boys.
James had the suits custom-made. The fabric was to die for. So soft and felt really comfortable. The ties and bow ties the boys wore were also custom-made. Loved the fabric you chose James. It was a great choice. Boys you pulled off the vintage look well!! Loved it.
The time with the boys just flow by and before long it was time to head out to the girls who were getting ready a Bek’s parents home. My favorite part of the house was the blue doors!! They were super cute!! Bek your dress and the girls dresses were stunning so beautiful!!
The ceremony was held at Ursuline Chapel which is behind the St Marys and St Josephs Catholic Cathedral. The church was cute and had beautiful light- Made for stunning photos. After the ceremony we stayed at the chapel for a group photo, family and friends photos before heading out to the Gostwych Chapel near Uralla. This was my first time photographing at Gostwych … It was pretty cute and the surrounding area was gorgeous!!
After photographing at Gostwych we headed over to Peterson’s Vineyard for the rest of our shoot, drinks and canapes before heading into the reception. The reception was so beautiful and loved what you guys done to decorate the venue.
I hope you both had the most amazing time in Italy on your honeymoon. Thanks so much for sharing your day with me. It was a real blast and pleasure capturing your memories.
Mel and Jason got married at the beautiful Aanuka Beach Resort in Coffs Harbour a few weeks back. The whole wedding was held at the resort, they got ready there, the ceremony was held on the beautiful lawn area, the photo shoot and reception was all on the grounds too.
We started out in Jason’s room where he and his groomsmen were getting ready. After a few pics it was onto Mels room. The weather was perfect and we soon headed to the lawn for the ceremony. It’s a beautiful location overlooking the beach, and the rich blue sky made the day even more special.
It was great fun photographing your wedding, the bridal party were awesome fun and everything ran so smoothly!
Heres a few pics!
March was certainly a busy month for Mike and I. Catching up on our blogging and facebook sharing is a real mission at the moment. While I was up in Armidale for a wedding I caught up with Leisia and Mitch which are a couple who Mike actually captured their special day. He wasn’t able to make it up to Armidale for the wedding so I capture a few images during their engagement session for them.
I met Leisia and Mitch at the old teachers collegue in Armidale. I love this old building and the gardens surrounding it. It makes for such a gorgeous backdrop for a session. Mitch and Leisia were good fun! I was great to capture a few images for them and finally met them after all my email corresponance with Leisia leading up to the wedding. It’s always nice to finally put a face to a name.
Looking forward to Mike sharing your wedding photos shortly. I hope that you guys have enjoyed looking through them.
Here are just a few images from the engagement session
A few weeks back now Rachel and Stephen were married vn Golf Resort. It was such a gorgeous day. Stephen and his groomsman Andrew at Bonville. There was only two of them which made for an easy grooms prep session! The time before the wedding always goes so fast!!
Before long it was time to head over to Rachel who was getting ready in Stephen and Rachel’s house with her Maid of honor Katie and her family. Rachel was so cheerful and happy when I arrived!! It was surprising considering how stressful her morning was. Rachel’s hairdresser forgot about her wedding even though Rachel had confirmed it with her only a couple days before. It was so stressful finding another hairdresser that could fit the girls in. Rachel im so glad you took it all in your stride and didn’t let it wreck the happiness of the day.
Rachel made for a stunning bride. She looked so beautiful and it was a real pleasure to photograph the preparation photos for her. I loved your dress Rachel too it was gorgeous and your shoes were super cute!
It was soon time to head over to the ceremony which was being held at the 1st Tee at Bonville Golf Resort! The first Tee is so beautiful… It was really awesome that Rachel’s Dad had arrange for one of his Mates to drive them to the ceremony in his Hotrode.
The ceremony was performed by Sam from “Married By Sam”. Sam does a beautiful ceremony. It always makes me so happy to hear her ceremonies for couples. She is a gorgeous lively person!
After the ceremony we did some family photos at the first Tee and then headed around the resort for some photos of our gorgeous couple and their best man and maid of honor. There are so many beautiful location around Bonville for photos! It’s always really hard to choose where to go.
The reception was held in the floodedgums restaurant. It must be one of my favorite reception rooms. The backdrop of the golf course and the gum trees is breathtaking. The dancing is done on the lawn which I think is a beautiful touch.
Rachel and Stephen had such a beautiful day despite the hiccup in the morning things ran beautifully.
Thanks for sharing your special day with us. It was so enjoyable to capture your beautiful memories.

Recently the gorgeous Regan and Josh were married in Woolgooga. We started our day with Josh and his groomsman at their place apartment. The boys were awesome. A lot of fun to photograph!!
After photographing the boys we headed over to Regan and the girls who were getting ready at Regan’s parents home! I loved the bridesmaid dresses. The concept of having dresses in two different colours was great. Both the blue and purple were a great choice. They looked awesome on the girls. I loved too that Regan wore flats. So practical!! Girls heals look good but they are a real killer having to wear them all day!
After capturing the preparation photos it was soon time to head to the ceremony. The ceremony took about half and hour which we then did family photos at the ceremony location.
The ceremony was held in Woolgooga. Regan and Josh had planned the day well and allowed heaps of travel time to get down the busy highway into Coffs for the photos. All the photos were taken around the Jetty area. It was such a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. Perfect for photos. We had an awesome bridal party! They made for some great group photos.
Thanks guys for such a great day.
In the month of March Samantha and Blake took the plunge and exchanged their vows at the stunning Pacific Bay Resort.
The weather was beautiful after the rain we had experience the week prior to the wedding the ground was a little wet on the betting tee but not enough to stop this gorgeous couple from having their ceremony on the tee.
I started the day with Blake and his boys in one of the Penthouses at Pacific Bay. The boys were great… So organised!! I think that Sam must have had something to do with that LOL!! Samantha and Blake’s little boy Copper got ready with Blake. He was super cute!!
It was soon time to head over to Samantha and her girls. They were organised too. Kelli T did an amazing job of the girls makeup as per usual! She has a real talent for making girls look their absolute best which certainly wasn’t hard for this group of girls!! They were not only stunning but such a great bunch to work with!!
It was soon time to head to the ceremony. It is one of my pet things to have the bride at the ceremony on time. I always say … if you wont to be late you need to plan to be late not just run late because you can!! Samantha was perfectly on time!! She looked so beautiful as two of the most important man in her life (her biological father and her step Dad) walked her down the aisle!!
The ceremony was beautiful but was so hot as the sun came out about half way through. It was really steamy… I felt really sorry for Sam during the family photos as her dress was rather sticky on the inside because of the humidity… but the joy of finally being married was far more important and didn’t stop this gorgeous couple from smiling during their family photos.
After the family photos we headed around a few locations at Pacific Bay for photos before it was time to head into the reception which was being held in the Harbour View Room at the resort.
It was such an awesome day guys. Thanks so much for sharing it with me.
