What an incredible afternoon it was on Sunday in Ballina for Louise and Tiernan’s engagement session. As I was driving into Ballina, I came very close to calling these guys and rescheduling the shoot as there was plenty of rain and heavy storm clouds all over Ballina. I’m so glad I didn’t! We started the shoot at Shelly Beach and although there were storms raging off the coast, the air was still… eery still… and so the risk of getting caught in the rain was pretty low. We were just winding up and heading back to the cars when we caught a few sprinkles. Great timing! The same thing happened at North Wall and the light was simply superb. We finished the afternoon at The Serpentine where things were really starting to look a little grey, but as we were on a winning streak, just as we were about to finish up, the sun poked through the only hole in the clouds and just showered the entire landscape in an amazingly rich golden glow. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better performance from the Weather Gods!
I spent a beautiful afternoon with Melissa & James recently at Bangalow’s newest wedding venue Forget Me Not Weddings. This venue is a hidden little oasis with gorgeous grounds, a great pond with rustic jetty and set amongst the rolling hills and countryside that make this part of the world so popular with wedding couples.
Melissa & James are to be married at the end of the month at the equally spectacular Fig Tree Restaurant & Rooms, overlooking beautiful Byron Bay. If you are planning a wedding and happen to be in the area next weekend (June 20/21), pop into Fig Tree to see myself and many other wedding vendors at this year’s Byron Bay Wedding Fair. I’d love to discuss your wedding with you, so come along. I’ll be there all weekend.
