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 (www.lifeceremonies.com.au) 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.
