Tanya & Anthony. A Secret Garden, Byron Bay Wedding.

Tanya & Anthony. A Secret Garden, Byron Bay Wedding.

Tan & Ant knew exactly what they wanted their wedding day to be… a relaxed gathering of their closest friends and family in a beautiful location with plenty of great food and drinks to ensure everyone had a great afternoon… and that’s exactly what their special day was.

With the couple’s families located mostly in Sydney and Brisbane, Byron Bay made the perfect choice as a location and for their style of day, they couldn’t have picked a better spot than The Secret Garden. Although this venue sits on the main street of Byron Bay, unless you have been there, you wouldn’t know it even existed (hence the name). It provides a private, casual, relaxed environment and is scattered with eclectic artworks and sculptures.

Michelle Shannon delivered a beautiful ceremony, as she always does, and the couple wore enormous grins all the way through. In fact, they both spent a good part of the day laughing as you will see in the images below. It is so nice to see a couple that make one another so very happy and I’m sure their laughter was infectious… everyone, it seemed was having the time of their lives!

Tan & Ant both looked gorgeous, but as stunning as they both were, there were many times throughout the day when they were totally upstaged by their beautiful little girl, Maya. Maya spent much of the ceremony in her parents loving arms, which made me reminisce of my own wedding where I held our daughter Asia for the duration of the ceremony.

I’m sure the couple and all their family and friends kicked on long after I left for the day, and I am just as sure that they are still making one another (and possibly everyone around them) continue to laugh. Congratulations guys!

Jacqueline & Martin. A Bangalow Wedding.

Jacqueline & Martin’s wedding day was nothing short of magical. The ceremony and reception all took place at the gorgeous Cedia House, high on the hills surrounding Bangalow, with uninterrupted views that stretch as far as the eye can see. Attending a wedding at a venue like this reminds me not only of why I live in this amazing part of the country, but also, why so many couples travel from all over the world to host their weddings here. We locals truly are blessed.

The couple were joined by an intimate gathering of kids, grandkids, family and friends to witness a beautifully, heartfelt ceremony, officiated by Audrey Fischer.

Once the formalities were out of the way, everybody enjoyed some amazing food, cool drinks and great conversation as we watched what was a beautiful day pass into an equally gorgeous evening.
