Hunter Valley Wedding - Andy & Ellen

Andy & Ellen’s wedding was at the beautiful Redwood Park in Wollombi. What a superb venue! Ellen and her bridesmaids stayed on site and got ready in the Barnstay, a beautifully renovated 140 year old barn. Their ceremony was held on the grounds of Redwood Park, followed by photos and their reception in the Woodhouse, a gorgeous timber building purpose built for weddings and events.

This wedding was extra special for me, having known both Ellen and Andy since before they were “Ellen & Andy”, and Andy since he was a baby.

Ellen’s dad walked her down the aisle and there wasn’t a dry eye. Then Ellen and Andy were married by Ellen’s uncle as friends and family watched on, followed by canapés and lawn games while enjoying the beautiful music from acoustic guitarist, Georgie James. Then it was off for some photos (and many, many laughs), before heading to their reception to dance the night away.

These two make each other so happy and it was such a special day for them and their families. The exceptional attention to detail and personal touches created a wedding that was truly ‘them’, right down to the designer cocktails for the evening, the “Ellen’ and “Andy”.

Congratulations, you two. You deserve all the happiness in the world x

Central Coast Wedding - Chantelle & Josh

I love a wedding where you can see and feel the love between two amazing people who compliment each other to make a truely memorable day.

Chantelle and Josh’s wedding was at the beautiful Shelly Beach Golf Club on the Central Coast, where they were surrounded by special family and friends from all over. Their gorgeous daughter Ruby embodied the supportive and loving relationship Chantelle and Josh share. Seeing Josh’s face light up as Ruby was carried down the aisle, and again as he saw his wife for the first time, was a sight that tugged at the heartstrings of all their guests. I’m sure there were very few dry eyes at the ceremony...

The picture perfect reception overlooking the beach was topped off by a beautiful cake that had been made and decorated by the bride herself. The whole evening was full of love, laughter and some entertaining dancing.

A wedding to remember

Blue Mountains Wedding - Lauren & Tom

Lauren & Tom's was my favourite kind of wedding - the all weekend kind of event where family and friends stay together overnight. 

Lauren and Tom were married at the picturesque Chapel Hill Retreat. What a perfect place for a wedding, with a gorgeous on site chapel, elegant function room and beautiful accomodation, including a private bridal suite! Nestled in the Blue Mountains, the grounds are stunning. 

Lauren and Tom decided they wanted to spend as much time with their guests as possible after the ceremony, so switched things up a little. Rather than seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony, they had an intimate 'first look' earlier in the day. Then it was time for photos before they headed off to get married.

Lauren and her Mum are both teachers, which showed in their attention to detail. Everything was done to perfection. The decorations were stunning, and the reception venue twinkled with fairy lights, chandeliers and mirrors. And not to forget, a colour coordinated lolly bar.

Lauren made an absolutely gorgeous bride, and she and Tom are the sweetest couple. The whole weekend was so full of love, and the two of them couldn't have looked happier. What a fabulous wedding!

Dubbo Golf Club Wedding - Emma & Luke

 

This could not have been a more perfect wedding day.  Emma was possibly the most relaxed, down-to-earth bride I have ever come across, a true blue country girl. When she and Luke saw each other, you could truly see the sparks fly.  They were so relaxed and easy going in front of the camera that it really let their love shine.  

They were married at Dubbo Golf Club.  Their ceremony and reception was beautifully set by event designer, Tara Taylor of Taylormade Weddings & Events and every detail was impeccable.  

Emma and Luke's day was so personal and full of love, with Emma being attended to by her brothers and Luke by his brothers and Dad. After the ceremony, Emma & Luke jumped in their ute for a quick trip out to their cattle, who of course had to feature in their photos. And not to forget, their fur baby too. Cowboy boots, cows, a dog, gorgeous afternoon sun and perfect weather - heaven!

Lazy River Estate Wedding - Lauren & Brenton

Lauren & Brenton's wedding was a special one for us - our first wedding back after the birth of our son. And to make it more special, it was at the spectacular Lazy River Estate, where we ourselves were married. 

The love and respect that Lauren and Brenton have for each other just radiated from them all day. Any nerves Lauren may have had in the morning vanished the moment she laid eyes on Brenton. Throughout the day, they were just so happy to be in the moment together and soak up their first day of being a married couple.

Back at the reception, everyone let their hair down and much fun was had. The decorations were stunning, and the catering by Lazy River was heavenly.
