Shannon & Cale

wedding photographyAmanda McDonald1 Comment

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.

Kayla & Thomas

The weather kept us guessing as Kayla & Thomas prepared to become husband and wife at the amazing Roscrea Estate. And even though it was a bit all over the place it held off at all the right moments. For the most part anyway, we did get caught out briefly as we heading off for Kayla and Thomas' photos... but hey, what can you do! Both of them took it in their stride and never let it dampen their spirits. Despite the weather, the day was exactly as they planned it, relaxed, fun with a focus on family and friendship and we felt honoured to have been part of the day. A HUGE THANK YOU has to go to Alanna from Alanna Kate Photography who photographed with me all day. I couldn't have done it without you!!

Ben & Olga

What a crazy, fun-filled wedding this one was!! Ben & Olga really showed us a good time :)

The wedding ceremony was at Speers Point Park with the reception back at Ben's parent house in Warners Bay. They very generously agreed to host the event in their beautiful garden. It was a mad rush getting everything set to perfection with Ben himself running around putting last minute touches on. I think he ended up getting ready in about 5mins flat before rushing out the door with his freshly written speech in hand! They had so many amazing helpers all pitching in to get everything done, I know they wouldn't have been able to do it without them.

The day had a whole mix of cultures and traditions. The night for us was capped off watching the whole room break into traditional dancing. It was something that we hadn't yet experienced at a wedding but one we absolutely loved. Every single guest had the biggest smile on their faces.
