When I first met Georgie and Chris, I just knew their wedding day was going to be a whole lot of fun… and it certainly was. I spent the day surrounded by some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. The bridal party was full of larrikins and lovely ladies and felt more like a day out with friends than a regular ‘ol workday.
Alex Ouston looked after the hair and makeup for the girls and as usual, she and her team did a wonderful job. Alex has spent many years doing makeup for TV networks and it really shows. Her work photographs beautifully. The ever-lovely Michelle Shannon worked her usual magic and delivered a beautifully heartfelt ceremony. After the formalities, the guests were treated to the musical delights of The Paper Flowers, while the bridal party and I headed offsite for photos in a few locations around Byron Bay… travelling in style in a pair of 1964 Kombis supplied by The Vintage Wagon.
The team at The Wedding Shed certainly put their mark on Fig Tree. This venue always looks incredible, but for Georgie & Chris’ wedding, it was a whole new level of amazing. The couple encased their outdoor dining area with a marquee frame, decorated with soft fabrics, gorgeous chandeliers, and beautiful flower arrangements by the uber talented Estelle from The French Petal. This was the first time I have ever seen Fig Tree dressed like this… but I’m sure it won’t be the last.
Gabrielle and Mitchell arrived in Byron Bay last week from Port Hedland and will be married at Fig Tree Restaurant & Rooms tomorrow. The guys spent quite a bit of time travelling around the country and during their travels sought out the perfect location and venue for their special day. It’s no surprise they chose picturesque Byron Bay and the team at Fig Tree are certainly some of the best in the business! Gabrielle and Mitchell… you chose well.
On Monday afternoon we all spent some time together watching the sunset from The Pass. These guys are such a fun couple and have great chemistry which always makes a shoot like this so much fun. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s wedding!
Welcome to the wedding of Erin & Evan. Sit back, relax and grab a beverage because this is quite a long post. As a Byron Bay wedding photographer, it’s always great to shoot a wedding that shows off much of what the local region has to offer and this wedding did just that. We shot in a few new locations that I’d been wanting to shoot in for quite some time and the weather was simply fantastic… so great in fact that Erin, Evan and their family and friends all got to enjoy their meals al fresco under a moonlit sky. The team at Figtree did an exceptional job as usual, ensuring the day ran without a hitch and from beginning to end, the day was simply magical.
Oh and if you are wondering where Erin got her stunning dress from… it was handmade by Evan’s mum!
What a beautiful wedding! A team of Hollywood producers couldn’t have planned Kate & Magid’s day any better. Firstly, the event was staged at the magnificent Figtree Restaurant & Rooms. The bridesmaids preparations, the ceremony and the reception all took place at Figtree and the staff were sensational during every aspect of the day. The weather was spectacular and we had wildlife in abundance all day. During the family photos, a small rabbit popped over to see what was going on. Just off the coast of the Byron Bay lighthouse, we had numerous whales putting on quite a display during the location shoot and several wallabies down by the beach at Belongil.
They say good things happen to good people, so it is no surprise that this was a truly sensational day… Kate & Magid are two of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever have the pleasure of meeting. Congratulations guys! See you when you return from your honeymoon.
