Renee & Aydin….a day of love….

Renee and Aydin are a very special couple to me. I have had the pleasure of getting to know them and their family over the past few years.

They decided to tie the knot in November last year at Burnham Grove , a stunning heritage venue near Camden.

It was a beautiful wedding…

Aydin and the groomsmen dressed at his parents home in Cecil Hills. We had so much fun, thanks to Aydin and all the groomsmen for making my job so easy!

Renee and the bridesmaids dressed at Aydin and Renees home in Bradbury.

She looked absolutely stunning and the girls looked gorgeous in pink and silver….

We took lots of pics and before we knew it, it was time to go…

Aydin arrived at the ceremony on his Dad’s Harley, fully escorted by some other Harley enthusiasts.

The groomsmen were in a Red chevy and Renee arrived in a pink cadillac (envious, aren’t you?)

It was just fantastic!!

Lots of dark rain clouds threatened but held off for the entire afternoon.

The ceremony was lovely, it was held in a hedged area of the garden.

We then spent the next few hours taking pics of the bridal party, the cars and of course the happy couple.

The reception was held inside a beautiful marquee on the lawn and was complete with some very funny speeches (by the best man), wonderful food and music and a real party atmosphere.

Congratulations again guys, I wish you all the happiness in the world..

Rikki & Tom….a Wedding to Remember

Rikki and Tom are a gorgeous couple. They married recently at ‘Bella Vista Farm’- a venue which dates back to the 1700’s and holds great significance for the Bride’s family. Rikki’s paternal grandfather and his siblings were born and raised on this beautiful property so it seemed ‘just right’ to hold their wedding there.

The theme was country/rustic. The ceremony (performed by Celebrant Alexie Mckeith) was held under a beautiful tree near the original homestead. Rikki looked absolutely stunning! Her dress was ‘Brides desire’ by Airs and Graces from Fashions by Farina. Her hair and makeup (by Renee Elizabeth Wanna) was gorgeous. Tom from Iridescent weddings was the wedding co-ordinator on the day.

The guys were in grey and Tom could not take his eyes off Rikki for the whole day!!

We had loads of fun with the location photos – we walked all around the property, it was such a beautiful day and the light was superb!

The reception was held in the old packing shed and was lovingly decorated by all the bridal party the day before the wedding. There were gorgeous white flowers on every table, bales of hay were turned into couches and lots of hessian around the room  – it definitely had a real ‘country feel.’

Fabulous finger food was served by Icon Event catering and the crowd didn’t take long to get into the festivities…everyone had a great time dancing and letting their hair down.

The speeches were some of the nicest (and funniest) I’ve heard….

Congratulations again to both of you…and thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome…

love and best wishes

Jodie & Michael’s Wedding…

I really do have the best job in the world – I get to meet the NICEST people and check out the most amazing places!

Jodie and Michael were married at ‘Lovedale Cottages’ in the beautiful Hunter Valley late last year. They have being staying in these fantastic ‘rustic’ cottages for years and decided it was the perfect place for their wedding.

We were blessed with fantastic weather and the day started with Jodie and Michael both getting ready in their separate cottages!

The bride was then driven up to the ceremony in a rolls royce (I mean through the paddock, right up to the ceremony!!!) and afterwards we had a ball taking lots of shots around the property.

The day was topped off by a fantastic ‘party’ style reception.

Thanks everyone for making me feel so welcome.

Christine & Robert….

Christine and Robert are a beautiful couple and we had a ball on their wedding day. The day started out early at Christine’s parents home at Croydon. We photographed the girls getting ready and Robert decided to surprise Christine by sending their beloved dog over to see her whilst she was getting ready – she loved it!

We then headed off to Curzon Hall at Marsfield for the Ceremony and Reception. We had so much fun, I’ve never seen a full dance floor doing the YMCA at a day time wedding before!!

The skies really opened up for our location shoots at Blues Point Reserve, Martin Place and The Rocks. It didn’t dampen anyones spirits though, no-one in the bridal party seemed to even notice the rain….

Congratulations again guys….thanks to everyone for making the day so special..Dont forget to click on the images to enlarge them.
