Anthony & Zoe

Zoe and Anthony was our last wedding for 2016 and it went off with a bang (literally)

Zoe and Anthony are living my dream of living on a real working Dairy Farm out in the countryside so before the getting ready could start for the boys there was milking to be done! and a beer of course. The girls weren’t working so hard, back at the house things were very calm and relaxed while hair and makeup was getting Done.

The ceremony was held at the amazing the convent chapel singleton, the grounds of the convent were so beautiful and quiet that we hung around for a little while to get some photos and escape the heat. We then drove into the vineyards for some photos, everyone was feeling much more relaxed - this usually happens after a few drinks and we can tell as the bridal party starts being a little cheeky :) With very in love newlyweds, some amazing weather and pretty good scenery we were able to get a few ok photos ;)

The reception was at the lovely Tamburlaine, they looked after us very well! I don’t get out much so we were pretty excited when we were seated outside for entrees AND mains, both were delicious. The food and wine looked like it was enjoyed by all, this was particularly evident as we watched on as almost ALL the guests belt out Horses (a personal favourite of mine) on the dance floor.

Thanks for such a fun day/night Zoe and Anthony!

We hope your future is as bright and happy as your wedding day

Shannon & Cale

We had the most amazing day with Shannon & Cale for their wedding at St Augustine's Church, merewether followed by their reception at South Leagues.  Shannon was the most relaxed bride, I think there may have even been a moment when they almost forgot they had to get dressed during a dance/singalong to Spice Girls. Not so much singing and dancing was had by Cale and the boys who took a more laid back approach to getting ready. It was a special moment when Cale's Pop arrived to see the groom for the first time.

After the ceremony we headed down to the Fernleigh track. We have to thank the bridal party for being very tolerant of our 'bush roaming' in the quest for some amazing photos... I think it was worth the end result ;) Even the girls feet might not agree!

At the reception everyone really let loose. By the time we left the whole room was packed onto the dance floor with Cale in the centre. From all reports it was the best night of Shannon & Cale's life and they didn't want it to end.

Luke & Nicole

After having rain the day before, Luke & Nicole were lucky enough to have a perfect sunny day for their wedding. Nicole was so calm and composed during the morning, even taking time to tidy up the house before her dress went on. I was very impressed :) With the boys all suited up, they headed off to the church in Luke's beloved car that had to have a starring role in the day.
After the ceremony we headed off to the Fernleigh Track. The bridal party were all good sports when we took a little detour off the track. Walking up little tracks in heels is never fun but they all had a laugh and think it was worth it in the end. I have to give credit to the limo driver who followed us on our walk carrying a plate of food to keep every fueled. We left everyone dancing the night away at the Newcastle Club. It was such a great day, thanks so much for inviting us to be a part of it.

Rob & Nat

Thanks to this gorgeous couple for being so patient with their wedding photos, we have been flat out!

Nat and rob are both so easy going and instantly felt like friends. As always my favorite parts of the day are getting to learn many new and amazing things about people and their amazing lives. Nat's winter swimming and time spent in Finland, and Robs NZ upbringing and love of tea.

The Day was wet and we had a last minute relocation to Merewether Surfhouse, which was beautiful, and the weather was kind enough to let the rain stop and get us some gorgeous photos.

Thanks so much guys for letting us be part of your day xx
