Abbey & Simon| Mike & Amy | Coffs Harbour

September 28, 2015

Recently on a trip up to Coffs Harbour I was delighted to spend a day with Abbey and Simon at their wedding. Such an awesome day it was! True to our generation Abbey and Simon met on an online dating website and after a few months of talking they went on a date. It was Abbey’s very first date- Very cute indeed!

I always love hearing about the proposal that leads to the most exciting day of peoples lives. Here is Abbey’s perspective of Simon’s proposal:

“Simon drove us to Sawtell headland one night (something we do regularly, to look at the stars and moon) We sat there for a while talking, watching the sky and listening to music. Being only a Learner driver Simon asked if I wanted to drive home. (I really didn’t want to and was hesitant) I agreed and went looking for my Learner plates in the glove box of the car. I quickly grabbed  my plates out completely missing and not seeing there was a box in there! Simon asked me to have another look and told me that I had missed something. I opened the glove box again and seen the box in there (still not completely sure of what I held in my hands)  And then Simon said some beautiful words to me asked me to marry him, I balled my eyes out at first and couldn’t even talk! And then of course said “yes” to him”

What a beautiful proposal!! Sawtell headland is a beautiful place and very romantic and peaceful at night!

I was excited to capture this special day with our very cute couple. I started with Simon and the groomsman who were getting ready at Simon’s parents home 🙂 The girls prepared for the day at Opal Cove Resort, which is where I headed after spending some time with the boys.

The ceremony was held in Japaneses Garden’s at the Coffs Harbour botanical Garden’s. The weather wasn’t perfect for us but we worked with the gorgeous light we were given and captured some very gorgeous images.

It was soon time to head back to Opal Cove for the reception.  It was such an enjoyable day and a real pleasure to spend the day with such an awesome couple!

Thanks for an awesome day! I hope that you are both enjoying your Asia Honeymoon!!!
