A beautiful sunny Brisbane wedding

This was a day filled with so much sunshine, love, smiles and laughter.

Trish & Matt are a lovely couple who have some of the loveliest friends & family you could ever hope to meet. You could tell from the guest’s beaming smiles during the ceremony, and the heartfelt speeches at the reception, just how loved they are, and how pleased their loved ones were that they had found each other, and fallen in love.

We had such a relaxing day taking the bridal party photos around the beautiful grounds of the University of Queensland, and then drove the short distance to Hillstone, St Lucia for the reception. I love Trish’s dress by the way – the length, the design…just gorgeous!

A Byron Bay Wedding – Conan & Natalie

This wedding was held underneath a beautiful old fig tree, at the aptly name ‘Fig Tree Restaurant‘ in the hills overlooking Byron Bay. Natalie was walked down the grassy green aisle by her two handsome sons, which was followed by a lovely ceremony, personalised with Conan & Natalie’s own (quite amusing!) vows.

In typical Byron Bay style, we had blue skies interspersed with heavy downpours of  rain. They couldn’t have timed it better though – the rain cleared as guests arrived, until just after the ceremony when the entire wedding made a dash for the restaurant…and then after some mingling & congratulations, I headed outside with the wedding party for some photos just before the sun set. Natalie braved the wet ground with her gorgeous dress (thanks Natalie!) and we ducked back inside just as it started raining again! The food was fabulous, the speeches were funny & heart-felt, and then everyone danced the night away to some great music.

Natalie & Conan, thankyou for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day and allowing me to capture such special memories for you.

A sunshiney barefoot beach wedding

Here are a few of my favourite images from the wedding of Logan, a dear friend of 20-odd years, and Miriam, the love of his life. Perfectly matched, they started their day with a sunrise surf session & ceremony and were wed under a big blue sky on a beautiful beach on Stradbroke Island, surrounded by the immense love of their dear family and friends.

Aahhh, a wedding…

I recently went to the wedding of my soon-to-be-cousin-in-laws at Lake Bennett – just South of Humpty Doo in the NT- and was the unofficial photographer. I couldn’t resist putting a couple of pictures up of the gorgeous couple…
