Hayley and Richard’s Aanuka Wedding!

October 17, 2012

After a crazy busy couple of weeks its back to blogging for me!

Hayley and Richard were married at the beautiful beachside resort of Aanuka in Coffs Harbour. The day started as usual with us photographing the boys where they were getting ready, everything was at Aanuka so it made it super easy for us to get around.. so convenient! I had Nick with me photographing as well, making sure everything was captured. The boys were great fun to photograph, from the beers right down to the matching boxer shorts…

After that we went to the girls room where Hayley, her girls, and mum and dad were getting ready. Kelli T did the makeup and did a wonderful job as usual. And everything happened smoothly and efficiently, a great thing on a wedding day! Hayley told me how here husband to be Richard writes beautiful poetry, so here he was tough and manly, with a soft side too, she was so happy to be marrying her man and he certainly felt the same. Hayleys mum and dad also couldn’t hide there pride, and for us it was really special to be a part of it. Eva and Jonah were the cute little flower girl and page boy, so well behaved too! Except for a little hiccup during family photos with Jonah lol they were absolutely brilliant kids to work with.

We next headed to the lawn at Aanuka, it was a beautiful day, blue sky, sun shining, ocean in the background, a perfect spot for a wedding. Sam from Married by Sam was celebrant for the day and did a really nice job, very intimate and relaxed. Soon it was time for Hayley to walk down the aisle, the tears certainly flowed as dad walked her along, and we got to capture them.

Of course, once the ceremony finished and everyone congratulated our happy couple we did a group shot followed by family photos and then to the photo shoot. Aanuka had all the places we needed for the photos within walking distance so we started with the gardens and then went to the beach for our final shots there as the sun was softening over the hills.

Reception was next on the agenda, with the official entrance of our new married couple, a delicious meal and on to speeches. The speeches were great fun to listen to, and very heartfelt too, so lots of emotion there for us to photograph! The cake cut was then cut and then it was time to dance!

Thanks for having us as a part of your special day, it was an absolute pleasure.

Here are a few images from the day for now, all the rest will be sent to you shortly!!
