Brodie & Will. A Broken Head Wedding.

Brodie & Will. A Broken Head Wedding.

Brodie and Will ventured north to Byron Bay from the ACT for their big day. The boys made a road trip of the journey and spent a leisurely week working their way up the NSW coastline.

The couple relied on Byron Bay Weddings to handle most of the arrangements, and as always, they certainly delivered! The boys prepared for the big event onsite at Barefoot at Broken Head, while the ladies readied themselves at one of the neighboring bungalows.

There was not a cloud in site on this spring morning as Brodie and her bridesmaids made their way down to the dunes off Broken Head beach, to join the rest of the bridal party and a hundred or so family and friends, for an intimate ceremony officiated by Helen Riminac.

After the ceremony, everyone made their way back to Barefoot for plenty of great music, amazing food, heartfelt speeches, hacky-sack and general goodtimes.

As sunset approached, the boys from Byron Wedding Visual, the bridal party and I, all ventured up to the Byron Bay Lighthouse, to make the most of the late afternoon light and the setting sun. Once again, Byron Bay delivered with an incredible sunset… and a simply perfect way to cap off a beautiful day.

Brodie & Will. A Broken Head Engagement Session.

Brodie & Will. A Broken Head Engagement Session.


I love engagement sessions. They are generally a casual stroll with a fun couple in a really picturesque location. Brodie and Will’s session was no different except that we got to explore a beautiful location we didn’t know existed. As a kid I quite often went to Broken Head and would have explored the tracks throughout all the surrounding bushland, but it has been decades since I ventured very far up the Two Sisters Track, that leads south from Broken Head. During Brodie and Will’s shoot, we kept venturing further and kept discovering beautiful countryside. Couple this with gorgeous weather and an ocean full of playful dolphins, and we were guaranteed to have a wonderful afternoon.

These guys are to be married on the beach in September and I can’t wait to share their special day with them.

Courtney & Jacob. A Byron Bay Elopement.

Courtney & Jacob. A Byron Bay Elopement.


Some people like to make their wedding day a huge, lavish event with hundreds of friends and family along to share in their celebrations. Others, like Courtney and Jacob, choose a more simplistic path. Courtney and Jacob flew up from Victoria and were joined by their witnesses, their celebrant and myself for a very private ceremony on Little Wategos Beach, Byron Bay. Susie Figgis ( delivered a beautiful service, complete with sand ceremony, in a manner that suited the couple perfectly. After the ceremony, some brief showers passed by, lasting just long enough to add a little variety to the images of the day, but not long enough to disturb anything else. Courtney, Jacob and I then had a great time exploring the landscape of Australia’s most easterly point… which would also be as close as we could get to Jacob’s hometown of Reno, Nevada without getting wet.





Nikki & Shaun. A Lighthouse Beach Wedding.


I love beach weddings… and there is no shortage of beautiful spots to host one in this part of the country. This was my first time shooting a wedding at Ballina’s Lighthouse Beach though, and it proved to be absolutely gorgeous. It was a hot, hot day in Ballina the morning of Nikki and Shaun’s wedding and I’m sure the guys were rethinking the three-piece suits there for a while. Fortunately though, by the time the ceremony started, there was a lovely gentle breeze cooling things down in this protected corner of the beach.

The day started with a quick visit to E’Clips Hair Salon in Ballina where the girls were all being styled by the amazing Emily and her team. Then it was off to Nikki & Shaun’s place where the boys were donning their suits. The girls had the incredible Alex Ouston taking care of their makeup in a luxury room at Ballina’s Ramada Hotel. Flowers were supplied by the Alstonville Florist and the reception was hosted and catered by the Lighthouse Beach Cafe.

Paula & Patrick. Broken Head Wedding.


I hadn’t shot at Barefoot at Broken Head before Paula & Patrick’s wedding. This hidden oasis is just a short walk to the beach and provides a very secluded, relaxed atmosphere which was absolutely perfect for this wedding. The entire afternoon felt much more like a fun backyard BBQ with friends then your typical wedding (except in this case, instead of a backyard BBQ, Eat Drink Catering provided a wonderful selection of canapés and a sensational Singapore noodle bar!).

Entertainment consisted of a fancy-dress DIY photobooth, giant Jenga and the acoustic delights of local singer/songwriter Luke Vassella. The very fitting wedding cake was supplied by Eat that Cake, flowers by Liz North and the ceremony was officiated by Kath Murphy.
