Nina & Rob’s Sydney wedding

Nina and Rob are two of the most tremendously gorgeous people, inside and out.  Seriously.

With so many people coming to join them from New Zealand, Holland and all over the globe, they were determined to spend as much time as possible on their wedding day celebrating with their friends and family.

We’d had a killer engagement session together a few weeks beforehand (which you can see here), so today was to be all about the party.  The dance floor was heaving and all kinds of amazing.  I knew it was going to be one hell of a hootenanny when the bridal party all swapped out their heels for trainers.  And Nina’s pristine bridal cons….sigh, love.


Ceremony – Centennial Parklands

Reception – Bar No.5 Alexandria

Aleks & Thomas’ Blue Mountains Wedding

It was a vintage inspired wedding for Aleks & Thomas in the gorgeous Blue Mountains.

Did I mention Aleks has the voice of an angel? She sang a surprise rendition of “I wanna hold your hand” for Thomas at their reception which brought the house down…in German no less (his native tongue).

A special night I won’t forget any time soon x

Josie & Jason’s Sydney Wedding

Josie is Italian.  Jason is Irish. To say their wedding was a celebration would be understatement.

These two life-loving people had a really beautiful, rustic winter ceremony for close family and friends at Centennial Park, followed by a kick-up-your-heels hootenanny at The Gunners in Mosman.

The laughter and celebration flowed freely all night for these two.  Thanks for an amazing night J&J – I laughed so much I thought my face would fall off!

Katie & Ash’s Hunter Valley Wedding

Katie & Ash had beautiful ceremony at Adam’s Peak in the Hunter valley surrounded by family & friends.

The hills rolled on in the background, while everyone played giant yard games and celebrated hard.

Clear blue winter skies.  Katie’s amazing red hair. Ash’s can’t-stop-touching-it-oh-so-soft velvet jacket and so much love around these two.

Did I mention there was a giant bonfire?

Happy days.

A beautiful location.  A remarkable dress.  Buckets of rain and a seriously pumping dance floor.

Sandra & Dan – Southern Highlands Wedding

When Sandra told me that she and Dan planned to get married at Bendooley Estate in the Southern Highlands, well my little photographer’s heart skipped a beat.  It’s such a stunning part of the country with rolling hills and fields of long grass…*sigh.  The fact that it was two amazing people who clearly adore each other getting married there made it all the more special.

As it turns out, Sandra’s beautiful daughter was a key instigator behind the whole idea of these two getting married – so not only did Sandra and Dan become husband and wife on this day, but the three of them also became a family.

Glasses and hearts were full, and tears and champagne flowed freely.  Grab yourself a cuppa, sit back and enjoy  x

Gaby & Grant’s Inner City Wedding

Now living in Melbourne together, Gaby is originally a Sydney girl.  When met together, and Gaby and Grant told me of their plans for an intimate inner city wedding in Sydney.  Their locations would all pretty much be in walking distance from each other – Darlinghurst, The Hilton, The Strand Arcade – would I be ok to do some travelling on foot?  Hell yes I would.

I travel pretty light (I like to be super-mobile when I’m working) and the locations Gaby and Grant were talking about were making my little photographer’s heart sing.  Beautiful pictures can be made anywhere – in the corner of a messy room, down a dirty street alley etc – but when there are beautiful and interesting locations involved in a shoot, things get a little bit exciting 🙂

Gaby and Grant’s wedding day was such a fantastically happy affair.  You can see for yourself from the smiles coming from all directions. x

Dewi and Malindi’s Wedding

Malindi & Dewi were married in Sydney at the British Consulate at Circular Quay. They had been doing a lot of liaising with the Consulate in the months leading up to their wedding, and had (graciously and) apologetically let me know that we would only know the actual date of the ceremony a few weeks in advance.  This was due to a combination of ongoing official Consulate business, together with the scheduling and booking of other same sex weddings (a service the British Consulate was legally able and absolutely thrilled to be able to provide those eligible and seeking it).

Their wedding party however, had been months in the planning and was firmly locked in place.

As luck would have it, the Consulate advised Dewi & Malindi that their ceremony would happen a few short days before their reception was planned – it was perfect timing.

Their ceremony was intimate and beautiful, and held in the Consulate’s offices overlooking the Harbour.  Their following party a few days later was brilliant.  So many friends and family filled with so much love and happiness for Dewi & Malindi.

And the cake…..well imo the cake itself embodied pure happiness (you’ll see what I mean – seriously).  Best.  Cake.  Ever.

I was honoured to be asked to capture their wedding and to meet these two incredible, accomplished women.

Malindi and Dewi’s make-up was by the very talented Lindsay Carignan


Ashleigh & Nick’s Wedding

Ash & Nick are pretty private people, and they had a gorgeous wedding at Nick’s family home reflecting that.

Sydney was putting on some of it’s infamous crazy Summer weather on the morning of the wedding.  You know the kind – sunny one minute, blackened skies and sheet rain the next.   Then miraculously the skies turn blue again, & the whole cycle repeats itself.

The rain literally only stopped that day about 10 minutes before Ash arrived for the ceremony.  It held off just long enough for us to take some pictures together before bucketing down again.

There was home-made brew, a cookie table, lawn croquet & hay bales.  It was such a beautiful affair, no-one minded the rain.  Not even the horses.
