A few weeks back while I was up in Coffs Harbour for the Bonville Golf Resort Bridal expo I caught up with Tiga and Brian for their engagement session. Their wedding is less than 12 months away now! I can’t believe it was more than 6 months ago that you guys first made contact!! My goodness time is flying.
We did the session later int he afternoon thankfully the rain held off for most of the session. It did decide to pour right at the end of the session!
Thanks for an awesome session guys! I hope that all the wedding planning is going well.
Here are just a few images from the session.
A few weeks back now I photographed the wedding of Tiffany and Nathan in the beautiful Coffs Harbour NSW. Tiffany and Nathan are an adorable couple and like all couples have a sweet story to tell about. Tiffany and Nathan were introduced to each other by mutual friends- they still agrue to this day who should take credit for setting them up. Friends play a huge part in the lives of Tiffany & Nathan. I don’t think life would be life without our friends. This very cute couple had a large bridal party made up of their closest friends :-)
Before the wedding I always like to ask a couple about the proposal. Here is what Tiffany said:
We had been enjoying an amazing cruise with beautiful friends when Nathan took me snorkelling to help me overcome my fear of open water. Then he got me to follow him as he swam down to a beautiful bed of coral and then he turned around and got on one knee on the ocean floor! It was amazing! I think I just laid in the water for a minute trying to comprehend it!
I started the day with Nathan and his boys who needed a little assistance with their ties!! Obviously these boys didn’t work in a office with suit and ties LOL After ensuring the boys were ready for the ceremomy I headed over to the girls who didn’t need much assistance!! Tiffany looked so amazing in her dress. I think it was very special that Tiffany show her girls the dress prior to the wedding and she made the bridesmaids wait in the room while Tiffany’s mum but her into her dress!! What a special moment between mother and daughter. The girls sturggled to hold back the tears when they seen Tiffany in her dress for the first time!! I can see why too – she looks soooo beautiful. It was such a pleasure to photograph her bridal photos :-)
The ceremony was held at the Botanical Garden’s in Coffs Harbour which was followed by family photos. The photos were taken at both the Botanical Gardens and Coffs Harbour Jetty.
It was an amazing day guys- I enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks for sharing such a special day with us. A pleasure to capture!!
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting Joss and Mel at Birrarung Marr Bells for their engagement session. It is a gorgeous spot for photos. This place was choosen as this area of the city is Mel’s favorite spot! I can see why. During the day their is a serenity – amazing really when it’s so close to flinders station and the heart of the city!
Joss and Mel have a real spark and the session felt effortless. They are such a cute couple! I hope that you both enjoy the wedding planning process! It’s such an exciting part of a young couples life.
Here are just a few images from the session!!
A few weeks back now I had the pleasure of attending Avril and Keegan’s wedding. It feels like only last week I met with Arvil and discussed all her wedding plans! I can’t believe now the wedding has come and gone. What a perfect day it was. I hope that it was everything you planned it to be :-)
I started the day with Keegan and his boys. They needed a little assistance preparing for the ceremony but most boys do. Keegan had a thing for watches. I was privileged to photograph a small part of his collection! The boys also had cogs from watches as their cuff-links – A really cool touch!!
After giving the boys a hand and capturing a few images it was soon time to head out to Bonville Golf Resort where Avril and the girls were getting ready! The girls looked amazing! I was so excited when I arrived at the girls everything was so perfect. Avril your dress was stunning I hope you felt amazing as you looked absolutely incredible :-) Your gorgeous bridesmaids did a great job assisting you preparing and they looked beautiful too :-)
Keegan and Avril exchanged vows in the gorgeous rainforest at the Golf Resort. The staff at Bonville do an amazing job keeping the rainforest beautiful and stunning for wedding ceremonies all year round!!
After the ceremony we worked through some family photos and then headed to a few locations around the resort. The light was so amazing the afternoon of the wedding and really enjoyed capturing such a cute couple in such amazing light :-)
Here are just a few images from the day.
A huge congratulation guys :-)
If there ever was a wet weather wedding… Anja and Tom’s was one! Not that the rain made the biggest impression on the day but the weather in Coffs Harbour on that weekend was pretty bad… you know, flooding and road closures and stuff! The thing with Anja and Tom is that they weren’t fazed by it at all. You guys were an absolute pleasure to deal with on the day, and it made it really enjoyable. The entire wedding was held at the beautiful Pacific Bay Resort in Coffs Harbour, NSW. There was no chance to have the wedding outside so we had to settle with the ceremony indoors… not a bad thing though as there are plenty of facilities for it at the resort. Many of the guests travelled far to be at Anja and Tom’s wedding which made it very special. The ceremony and photo shoot were great as the bridal party braved the weaner as best as anyone could. The photos were great, the weather set a very nice tone for it, and everyone had a good time. The reception was fun too, the series of photos of the garter and bouquet being thrown (whilst not all shown here) were awesome too. Here’s a few pics from your day Anja and Tom, although you’ve already seen them all as you have the photos! – Mike
We have just finished a very busy wedding season and are set in for the winter months now, I recently photographed the wedding of Kel and Todd at the Aanuka Beach Resort in Coffs Harbour. It was a stunning day and the ceremony was held overlooking the ocean from the lawn just outside the resort. As you will notice from the photos Todd and his groomsmen are avid cricket fans, they also grew up in the country town of Casino in NSW. It was great being able to catch up with people that I hadn’t seen in a number of years. As has been the case with a lot of weddings of late, our brides and grooms have been opting to have their entire weddings at the one venue, i.e. accommodation, ceremony, reception. All of the photos were done on the grounds as well. I had a great time photographing your special day Kel and Todd, I hope you have enjoyed your photos, here are a few for others to see too! – Mike
Last weekend I caught up with the very cute Jess and Matt at Fitzroy gardens in the city!! I’m so pleased we had some very pleasant weather for the session. It was raining and it wasn’t too cold. A real bonus for Melbourne. I loved the this because Jess and Matt are so adorable together. It’s always such a please to photograph a couple that are truly in love. Sorry Matt that I didn’t wear black and white for the session!!- I might show my support for your team at the wedding by wearing a black and white dress- maybe I can convince Mike to wear their colors too! LOL.
The Garden’s were so gorgeous for the session. I love photographing this time of year. The trees losing their leaves are so beautiful!!
Thanks for an awesome session guys!! Looking forward to being part of your special day :-)
