Sarah and Jordan were married amongst family and friends at Byron Bay’s popular Fig Tree Restaurant. It was a glorious day in this part of the world and every element of the wedding was thought out and executed to perfection. The gents were all looking very dapper and the ladies very elegant in their beautiful gowns. There were tears aplenty during the ceremony and an abundance of laughter during the rest of the day. This was the coming together of two New Zealand families and so there were touches of Maori tradition throughout the day… including a traditional haka initiated by the bride’s brother.
I had such a fun day with this beautiful couple. Annie and Denham were married amongst family and friends on Annie’s parent’s macadamia plantation in Alstonville. It had long been a dream of Annie’s to be married on the property and Annie’s parents had spent many months working on the gardens to have the place looking it’s very best… and it looked spectacular! After the garden ceremony, the guests enjoyed a lavish tea party while the bridal party and I visited a rustic old farmhouse on an adjoining property for a fun bridal shoot.
The reception was held back on the family property and we rounded out the day with a wonderful sunset shoot at Boulder Beach. It truly was a gorgeous day from start to finish.
Sarah and Jordan braved the long weekend traffic to venture into Byron Bay last Friday for their engagement session. Being the long weekend, most of the location options for such a shoot were flooded with visitors to the area, so I took the couple to a very quiet and private part of Belongil Beach. It was a gorgeous afternoon and possibly the calmest one we’ve had for quite some time. The inlet at Belongil Creek was like a mirror… so we made the most of it with several reflection shots.
It is now less than two weeks until these guys tie the knot at Byron’s famous Fig Tree Restaurant and I can’t wait to capture the big day!
