Not too long ago I had the pleasure of capturing Jade & Tyson’s wedding at Emu Bottom in Sunbury while Mike was up in Yamba NSW at Courtney and Nathan’s wedding.
Jade & Tyson had a gorgeous Spring day to formalise their relationship and celebrate with their families and friends. I started my day with Tyson and the boys who organised which I always appreciate as it means lots more photos of this special part of the day.
It was soon time to head to Jade and her girls. Brian their gorgeous hound was with the girls. He is simply gorgeous to say the least! We captured some sweet images of the girls getting ready before the Taxi arrived to take Jade and her girls along with Jades family to the wedding.
The ceremony was held at Emu Bottom….. Such a perfect location for a spring wedding. The ceremony was followed by friends & Family photos along with a few quick photos with the car before heading to a few locations at the homestead for photos.
The reception was hosted in the woolshed and was an awesome party to celebrate Tyson and Jade’s union.
Here are just a few images from their awesome day.
I love capturing the expression of the groom when he sees his bride for the first time. …. It’s definitely one of the highlights of being a wedding photographer.
Last year amongst the chaos of wedding season we fell very behind on sharing our gorgeous couples weddings on our blog!
Jessica & Kris were married on a Sunday at the end of last year and I was delighted to be able to capture their day. Kris opted not to have preparation photos taken so I started my day with Jess and the girls. Poor Jess came down the tonsillitis on her wedding day but did very well to put a on brave face and enjoy the day her and Kris had spent much time planning for.
The ceremony was held at D’Olive at Point Cook as was the reception. It was a gorgeous out door ceremony. The ceremony was followed by family photos at break for the bridal party to eat and drink before capturing some stunning images of the couple and their bridal party.
The reception was a cocktail style and was full of dance and celebration. As the sun sets late this time of year at about 8pm we headed out for some photos in the last light.
Here is a little snippet of the photos Jess & Kris received. A huge congratulations to you both again.
Mike and I can’t believe we are already one week into 2017. Last year just flow on by. We have fallen a little behind with sharing our gorgeous couples weddings from the end of last year.
In November I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of Jenna and Heath. It was an amazing day for them both. The weather wasn’t the most pleasant with the crazy wind we experienced at Elwood but Jenna and Heath took it in the stride and made the most of the weather they were given.
I started the day capturing images of Heath and the boys getting ready in East Keilor. I loved all the little details there was to capture particularly the super hero socks…. a great touch.
The girls were getting ready not far from Elwood pier where the ceremony was to be held in a cool little air B&B. Jenna’s family had travelled across from the States as well as some of her bridesmaids. It was such a nice atmosphere with girls and the time flow on by. It was soon time to head to the pier for the ceremony, family photos and the photo session.
The winds at the pier were a little trying for Jenna and Heath and the bridal party but they coped so well and we were able to capture some awesome images despite the challenges of the weather. 🙂
The reception was hosted by Sails on the Bay at Elwood and was certainly a great Celebration of the love and friendship shared by Jenna and Heath.
Thank you for trusting me to capture your memories and thank you to the amazing team I worked with at their wedding. Here are just a few highlights from the day.
I’ve been looking forward to putting up Courtney & Nathan’s blog entry for a little while now, it was just a matter of actually doing it as there has been so many weddings the last few weeks!
We had a perfect day for the wedding in the beach town of Yamba, NSW. The houses where Courtney & Nathan got ready in were beautiful and so full of natural light but the garden where the ceremony was held was one of the highlights for me. It was absolutely beautiful, the sun was in just the right spot to give us rich colours and the rich green grass, trees and colourful flowers made it a perfect spot to get married. The ceremony & family photos were over before we knew it and after doing a few bridal party shots in the gardens we headed to a lookout overlooking the ocean.
The Angourie Lookout was our destination (after a quick drop of to buy drinks for the groomsmen!) which had amazing views and stunning blue sky as our backdrop. After that we headed to the Yamba Golf Course for the remainder of and in my opinion some of the best shots of the day. The sun was starting to go down leaving some nice glowing and soft colours to work with. Of course any lighting and location would be fine for a couple that looked this good!
The reception was also held at the Yamba Golf & Country Club, the huge reception room fitting Courtney & Nathan’s guests very well. The roominess also helped us catch some brilliant series of shots for the bouquet & garter throws. There’s a couple in our little sneak peek below.
Here’s a few photos to look at whilst you wait for your images in the mail!

Recently I had the absolute pleasure of capturing the wedding of Jess and Nathan at the gorgeous Witchmount Winery Estate in the western side of Melbourne. It was a glorious day and was a delight to be entrusted to capture memories for Jess & Nathan.
I stated my date with Nathan and his boys. The boys were so organised and a real pleasure to capture. Nathan was accompanied by two groomsman Rob and Damien. They did a great job keeping Nathan company and ensuring he was ready LOL.
After visiting the boys for their preparation photos it was soon time to head over to Jess who was preparing for the ceremony with her bridesmaids, her family and their little boy Lewis. Jess was a super cute bride and loved that she chose comfort over traditional heels and wore her Converses.
The ceremony and reception was held at Witchmount Winery at Plumpton. The ceremony was initiated by David Schneider who did an amazing job assisting me with the group and family photos.
All the photos were taken at the gorgeous venue before the coupled headed into their reception to celebrate with family and friends. Thank you Jess and Nathan for an amazing day. Delighted to share some more photos with you.
Love this image of Jess’ wedding dress and her mum’s wedding dress…… so gorgeous.
The converse’s were a great touch… so comfortable. 🙂
On one of our recent trips to Coffs Harbour we had the opportunity to photograph two weddings at the luxurious Villa Vivante mansion. Up in the hills surrounded by banana plantations and with a magnificent view of the town and ocean it sure is a great fantastic place to photograph a wedding! Peta from North Coast Luxury Weddings did a great job of planning the day for our beautiful couple Keira & Nathan.
Kiera & Nathan both opted to get ready at the house before it was time for Nathan to head into town so as to make a big entrance when the guests arrived. Keira looked stunning in her beautiful bridal gown as did her bridesmaids. Carmel from Makeup Box did the girls makeup along with Luxe Artistry who did a great job of the hair. The flowers were provided by Flowers By Bonnie
Once ready it was time for the girls to wait, wait for Nathan to arrive by helicopter from Precision Helicopters much to the surprise of their guests! The ceremony was nice and relaxed and the weather was fine, Nathan and Keira were able to soak it all up and enjoy the meaning of their special day. Clare Bath did a beautiful job of the ceremony and once it was sealed with a kiss and legally signing the papers Keira & Nathan were officially married.
For the photo shoot we stayed primarily at the grounds of this beautiful location but also spent time at the nearby Korora Beach. The reception was of course plenty of fun with music dancing and of course cake, cake from the Amazing Sweet Love Cake Couture which I might add was delicious!
Some of the dancing was brilliant, there is always someone who owns the dance floor and we had a great time photographing our lovely bride & groom, but also their awesome guests!
Here’s some of the shots from the day!
At the beginning of November I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of Ana & Daniel in the beautiful Dandenong ranges. After capturing some preparation photos of Ana and her gorgeous bridesmaids I met Daniel and his groomsman at Tatra in the bridal room for some preparation photos of them.
The ceremony was held in the chapel at Tatra. Ana & Daniel exchanged vows and signed all the legal documents which marks the start of their new journey together as Husband and wife. The first few images of them walking out of the chapel as husband and wife truly capture the happiness that was present on this gorgeous day. Although Ana was sick with the Flu she could not wipe the smile off her face for the entire day. All of the photos were taken at Tarta, outside the chapel and in the gardens. It was so beautiful.
Thanks for the most amazing day and congratulations on the wedding.
Here are just a few images from the day we would love to share with you all.
