There is nothing quite like a designer wedding album. For me, the best part of my job is handing over the finished album and seeing the reactions of the bride and groom. The joy, the laughter, the tears as they relive their special day through the pages of a gorgeous storybook. During my time as a wedding photographer, I have used several album companies, but none have equalled the quality of the company I have now been using exclusively for a little more than two years. The colour, the clarity, the quality are all superb and make for a product that will not only be enjoyed by the couple, but also by their children, and quite possibly their children.
I haven’t been shooting much through February, which means I have been a little quiet on the blog. I have however been designing many albums, all of which I hope to share with you over the coming weeks. This album is of the wedding of Kate and Magid, held at Fig Tree Restaurant & Rooms last September. Kate and Magid are an amazing couple who I am very pleased to now consider friends. Their album has been printed on thick museum quality fine art paper and was too big for just one album… so we created two volumes. Here they are for your viewing pleasure… enjoy!

There’s something about weddings that is so uplifting. We all seem to be so crazy busy these days that I guess it is a very rare thing that we stop and collectively celebrate together. Perhaps, that’s why weddings are so fantastic, it gives us all an opportunity to take a moment – pause – and just feel the pure joy of two people in love.
I’ve been looking forward to Richard bringing home images from Carly and Coady’s Alstonville wedding. These two had me hooked from their engagement shoot, they are just a really sweet couple and we knew the wedding would be something beautiful. I’m a big fan of vintage weddings, accessories and colours and there are some really beautiful details in this wedding that just looked fantastic. Carly exuded classical beauty on the day and I just know these images are going to make a killer wedding album.
Carly and Coady, I’m glad your wedding day was everything you hoped it would be, we send our very best wishes for your radiant future together.
We love living in the Northern Rivers. I know, I know… I’ve probably said it all before but, really, this is one of the most beautiful areas in Australia. The beach, the rolling hills – what is not to love about this area? When Rich and I were living in Brisbane he used to always say that he never felt like he was home until he saw a particular stretch of sand down Lennox Head way. Now that I live here I can totally understand what he means. This area just has that effect on you. Even on our busiest days, all it takes is a glimpse of the coastline and I remember why we moved and why we work so hard doing what we do. I guess that is why we enjoy our local bridal shows so much. Not only do we get to meet lots and lots of local brides but we also get to meet other wedding service providers who work really hard to ensure that the Northern Rivers Area is a fantastic place to get married.
Hopefully all those who dropped by the Ballina Bridal Show last weekend were just as impressed by the array of services offered and the quality and passion of the service providers. Let’s face it, getting married is a big financial investment and you want to make sure you are hiring professionals who can deliver on your big day. We’ve all heard the horror wedding stories about things going wrong on the day and I guess that’s what makes a bridal show a great place to shop for your wedding service providers. We can vouch for quite a few of the providers around this area so, if you need any recommendations, feel free to drop us a line.
Here are a few shots taken by Richard at the “fantasy wedding” held on the day. All service providers are listed below. Big thanks go out to Vicki at the Ballina RSL for hosting and organising such a great event for our area. Thanks also to Ballina RSL staff members Allicia Blyth and Mark Gray who were our Fantasy Wedding bride and groom on the day.

As this year’s Ballina Bridal Expo draws closer, you’ll begin to see the level of marketing activies promoting the event increase. Here is a sneak preview of the television commercial that will start gracing our screens over the coming weeks. It features imagery from three of my recent weddings as well as some shots from local photographer Suze McLeod. Congrats to all my brides that were selected for the advert. Below is a brief synopsis of each wedding.
Louise – the Face of this year’s Ballina Bridal Expo. Louise and James were married in Brisbane on the 24th September 2011. Come and meet Lousie and James at the Expo and discuss their real-life wedding experiences.
Kobie and her Grandma – Kobie and Phil were married at Ballina on the 7th January 2012. A beautiful garden ceremony and the reception all took place at the Ballina Beach Resort.
Philippa and Scott’s Bridal Party – their ceremony took place at St. Bartholomew’s in Alstonville and the reception on Philippa’s family’s property at Rous. This shot was taken amongst the Macadamias on the property.
