Rae & Chad’s Villa Vivante Wedding

April 6, 2014

It’s a funny time to sit and reflect on a wedding…. 11pm on a Sunday night… after an accidental 3 hour sleep this afternoon I have too much energy for a Sunday evening and instead of our early night ive decided its a good to time share Rae and Chad’s wedding with you all.

Rae and Chad flew across from their home in Perth in February to met with some family and close friends to celebrate their wedding Rae and Chad’s wedding was really special and we feel so privileged to have been asked to capture their special day for them. Rae is an amazing girl and so full of life. Her story touches my heart! Thank you for sharing a part of you life with us.

Mike and I both attended Rae and Chad’s wedding. While I was photographing Rae and the main bedroom of the Villa, Mike was at the other end capturing a few images of Chad and his best man before they headed off to the airport to catch their chopper to the wedding.

Rae was alot of fun to photograph. I feel in love with her shoes! They were super cute! The colour beautiful!! The few hours we spend with the bride and groom prior to the ceremony always goes so fast. Before we know it, it’s time for the ceremony. Guests were gathered on the top balcony for drinks and to what Chad arrive in the chopper so once he had landed guests headed down to the veranda over looking some of the northern Coffs harbour suburbs for the ceremony.

The ceremony was really sweet and included a sand ceremony reflecting on the join together of two lives! Such a sweet idea. following the sand ceremony we headed down to Charlesworth Bay with all 19 or so guests and the bridal party for family/friend photos as well as the official photo shoot. We started with the family/friends photos first before having drinks and Canapes on the beach. After the delightful canapes had been enjoyed we started the official photos. It was awesome that the rain held off just long enough for us to finish our photo session and capture some really sweet images of Rae, Chad, and bridal party.

After our photos the guest as well as our couple headed back up to the Villa to enjoy Canapes and their seated dinner. Following dinner we had speeches the slide show of 100 or so photos of the day and then Rae and Chad opened their Carnival themed desert bar as dessert… I loved the opening of the dessert bar idea instead of cutting the traditional wedding cake.

Rae and Chad it was such a beautiful wedding. Both Mike and I had a fabulous day and enjoyed every minute of your wedding. Thank you for letting us share your special day.

Here are just a few images I would like to share with everyone… Hope you are enjoying looking through your wedding photos.
