Charlie and Cookie

September 8, 2011

Last Saturday Mike and I photographed the Wedding of Charlie and Cookie.  It was such a beautiful spring day! What a great start to the first weekend in spring!! We made our way out to Sawtell to capture the happenings before the wedding. Cookie and his boys got ready at Charlie and Cookie’s home. It was very funny to see the boys madly get dressed when we arrived….. with the boys telling us ” Don’t tell Charlie we weren’t ready when you got here!” Boys we did tell Charlie and she just laughed! LOL!! 🙂

Charlie and her girls were making their final touches when we arrived at their preparation location and were able to capture some images of Charlie having her makeup touched up and dressed done up. It was such a great atmosphere at the girls place… all the excitement of the big day was just overflowing.

Charlie and Cookie chose to share their ceremony at the end of the Coffs Harbour Jetty. Beautiful Weddings arranged the ceremony. It was a gorgeous atmosphere at the Jetty with the slightest of a breeze. While Charlie was arriving with her bridesmaids, Charlie’s mum collected flowers from the couples guests for her bouquet.  I thought it was such an awesome idea. Charlie had asked her guests to bring a flower each for her bouquet… it was such a colourful bunch of flowers! 🙂 It was in Charlie’s word “A little surprise for the bride not knowing what flowers she would carry down the isle.”

After their ceremony we stayed at the end of the Jetty for a group photo of the guests followed by family photos. We than stayed around the Jetty area for the couple’s formal shoot. I know it’s sounds a little corny, but the lighting for Charlie and Cookie’s shoot was just magic!!  – Mike and I are both natural light photographers and use little to no flash when we shoot- so get pretty excited to work with lighting like that. What a perfect day it was for such an awesome couple.

Cookie and his boys had to have some photos with Leon while we were up near Gallows. Leon is Cookie’s beloved 1968 Valiant Safari. Charlie says that Cookie loves loading Leon up with his surfboards and heading to the beach for his own little endless summers. Charlie says that it has the perfect bench seats for cosy driving. Leon didn’t make it on the blog but there will be some photos up on the our facebook page.

Charlie and Cookie’s reception was at the Coffs Harbour Surf club- the very place they met. Cookie also does all his surf patrolling through the surf club. They thought it would be the most approirate place to celebrate their special day.

Thanks Charlie and Cookie and your bridal party for such a great day.  Here are just a few images from your special day 🙂
