Simone & Sam’s Wedding | Mike & Amy Photographers | Aanuka Beach Resort

September 3, 2016

Last Saturday we photographed the wedding of Simone and Sam at the incredible Aanuka Beach Resort. It was a perfect winters day for a wedding, mostly blue skies and warm, we were off to  a good start before we even began!

Amy photographed Simone and her bridesmaids whilst I photographed Sam and the boys. They were almost next door in the resort so that made it super easy logistically, except for the fact that they couldn’t see each other beforehand!

The boys suited up just nicely with the groomsmen in two piece suits and the groom in a  three piece (another reason why winter weddings can be a great idea!). The girls of course looked stunning and Simone’s dress was just beautiful.

The ceremony was held on the lawn area of the resort facing the beach, there’s beautiful gardens and a lagoon nearby which make great spots for photos. Ken Palmer officiated the ceremony and did a fantastic job as usual. Ben Francis provided music at the ceremony as people mingled which set the scene perfectly as Simone walked down the aisle. Simone’s dad Anthony looked like he just couldn’t be happier as he greeted Sam and handed over his lovely daughter.

After the formalities and family photos we started the photo shoot. Coffs Coast Love Letters provided the props for many a photo and looked superb when placed alongside such a great looking bridal party! We were able to make use of them right through the day and into the evening.

The reception was held in the Lagoon room at Aanuka and catered perfectly for the number of guests. Ben Francis looked after the role of MC and DJ providing the entertainment for the whole evening. After the food was served we headed out for some night photos, returning after a few minutes for the speeches, cake cut and of course dancing!

Here’s a few images from the wedding! 🙂
