From start to finish, Therese and Timothy’s wedding was everything they imagined it to be… and 100% THEM! The boys started the day with a few quiet drinks at the Bangalow Hotel while the girls prepared for the big day at the couple’s house in Suffolk Park. The ceremony was held at St Kevin’s Catholic Church and Therese’s family priest made the trek to Bangalow to officiate the ceremony. After a few bridal party and family photos around the church, the couple and I headed up to a private property overlooking Byron Bay. Although it was rather overcast, we still had spectacular views over Byron Bay… and the moody clouds were great for photos!
The reception was held in Bangalow’s historic A & I Hall. I have been to and photographed many events at the hall and it often looks fantastic when styled well. On the night of Tess & Tim’s wedding, I had never seen it look so good. Pip from Byron Audio truly out did himself this time. The place looked absolutely magical. During the reception, the best man gave a speech that I’m sure the guests will be talking about for years to come. Delivered in the form of song and dance, with a Steve Carell-esque feeling to it, he had the entire hall in fits of laughter while poking fun at Tim, but knowing exactly how far he could go without harming the tight bond these guys have. I’m giggling again now just thinking back to it.
For the couple’s first dance they totally rocked out to Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, performed to perfection by The Feramones. It was the quickest I have ever seen all the guests jump up to join in and they were all still rocking long after I hung up my cameras for the night.
