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.
