Melissa and Brett

April 23, 2012

Just over a week ago now was the beautiful wedding of Melissa and Brett (no, not the same Mel and Brett that we photographed two weeks before, this is a different Mel and Brett in case you’re wondering!)

The bridal prepeartion, groom getting ready, ceremony, photos and reception was all held at the scenic Opal Cove Resort in Coffs Harbour.

The three guys were first up for photos, and that was a breeze, then it was to the girls for the bridal prep photos. Mel was so organised, everything was ready, the dress hanging up, and all the shoes, flowers, etc neatly placed and ready to be photographed. As usual the time flew by and before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at 4pm just next to the lagoon at Opal Cove, and this made a beautiful backdrop to the wedding. All the more impressinve was the big storm clouds looming over the ocean. Diane Egan was the celebrant for Mel and Brett and she did a lovely job. Once the ceremony was over, our happy couple were officially husband and wife and some of the guests had given them congratulations and hugs it was time for the photoshoot.

With the rain just starting to sprinkle we started our photos around the Lagoon and some of the beautiful surrounds at the resort.Then it was to the beach for some shots of just Mel and Brett together, it wasn’t long before the rain started bucketing down and we were off back into the cars and over to the reception! We were fortunate the rain held off as long as it did and we cut it pretty fine, but the lighting was just brilliant to work with so that more than made up for it!

After drying off a little and doing some family photos it was time for the bridal party to enter at the reception. The speeches were very touching and in some cases hilarious (as with the groomsmen speeches) and these made for a very nice evening.

Thanks for sharing your day with us, hope you enjoyed your honeymoon in Fiji! Looking forward to sharing some more photos with you.
