Take note, grooms who think they can DIY at their wedding. If you're not prepared to custom build an altar and a tree-house for your big day, then you've got nothing on Joseph.
Liz and Joey's wedding was a perfect example of paying homage to young love, and creating a relaxed celebration centered around family, friends, and pets! Every wedding should have pets! Even if they break out of the fence frequently during inopportune times.
Set in the beautiful beach side suburb of Portalrlington where Liz and Joey grew up and got together as a couple, each part of their day was only ever a small walk or drive away, and the collection of classic Aussie muscle cars made each short trip a totally stylish blast! Perhaps one of the sweetest parts of the day though was returning to the street lamp that Liz and Joey got together underneath years before for a few quiet moments. So simple yet so significant. Love it!
My sincerest appreciations go out to Liz & Joey for having me capture such a wonderful, warm day in Australia. Every bride and groom could learn from these two about how to rock it in relaxed DIY style.
WHAT A BLAST!
From start to finish, Anna & Chris created one of the most memorable and fun weddings I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. They won me over even more by feeding me a deluxe meal, not once, but twice! Yep, it's that simple with me.
Having spent a few occasions getting to know Anna & Chris before their big day (engagement session here) I knew they'd just have an amazing vibe to their wedding - chilled, full of smiles, food, and oh so much love! The elegant and stylish simplicity of their attire, the jovial loving bounce they had for each other all day, and an absolutely blistering first dance! It truly was the perfect balance of organised and footloose fun. I cannot thank them enough for having me capture it all!
Much love and one big ol' blog post of joyful images,
Shout out to the fine venue folk at The Farm Cafe for being on point and keeping me well hydrated!
HOLY SMOKES! What a blast this wedding was!
Right from the beginning of the day, Nikki & Kesh set THE tone for a celebration of their love, great friendship and family, then wrapped it in generosity, incredible food, insane partying, and a desire for raw industrial wedding photos.
It's not every wedding where the couple says 'We want you and Nat to feel like our guests' and follow through by trying to get you to drink beer and special rum cocktails in the first hour of the wedding day. Emphasis on 'trying'. They also hounded us with food!
From the preparation, to the ceremony, and right through to the reception, there was such a genuine sense of love and respect between all of Nikki and Kesh's family and friends. Even their celebrant, Kay, was a great friend of theirs!
However, the most touching aspect of the wedding (aside from their marriage) was Nikki & Kesh's noble support of cancer research through a very beautiful gesture. Take a close look at the polaroid station. Each shot that guests took and placed was then matched with a donation by Nikki & Kesh to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. Can you imagine if every wedding was this selfless?
Natalia and I cannot stress enough how much this wedding was an absolute pleasure to capture, especially since we've made acquaintances with so many people from the wedding too!
Lots of love to you both, Nikki & Kesh! Thank you!
What a way to start 2016.
An ever handsome and gregarious 6'8" groom, and a classically beautiful and eloquent bride made for a truly unique and stylish wedding at the Werribee Mansion in Victoria's south west. There was always a truly endearing look in Benson and Jacqui's eyes whenever they looked at each other. That of a love that is true and deserving of great celebration.
We are incredibly grateful for Jacqui and Benson having us capture their exceptionally well planned and down right fun wedding day. They will most certainly enjoy a love filled and life-long marriage together.
