Jay and Alvaro’s two day wedding down in Sydney was kicked off by their official Hindu ceremony in Glebe Hall. Jay is Indian and Alvaro is from Spain, so this was a true multi-cultural affair, full of bright colours, amazing traditions and a group of really lovely people. I’ve never photographed a Hindu wedding before, so was really excited to head down to Sydney, meet this awesome couple and capture their wedding for them. I caught up with Jay at her Dad’s home in Ryde in the morning where she was getting prepared, and from there we headed to Glebe Town Hall for the ceremony, before heading off to Shark Beach for a photoshoot. Here are some of the photos from the day… how beautiful does Jay look in her traditional wedding clothing?

Shauna and Sam kicked off their 2016 with their beautiful wedding in Mt Cotton, held in Shauna’s Mum’s extremely well kept garden.  They’ve gone and set the bar preeetty darn high when it comes to garden weddings, as this was a cracker. Every minute detail was taken care of in a stylish, rustic, warm and inviting way…. from the whiskey bar to the cheese platters and the coffee station, it all looked fabulous. Even the life size storm trooper had an element of class… as did Ironman, who made a couple of appearances in the early parts of the day!

At the heart of the wedding though was the genuine love and esteem that everybody there holds these two in. Shauna is from Zimbabwe and Sam from New Zealand, so their  family had come from all around the world to share their wedding with them. It was awesome to see that, and to see the love, respect and closeness that Shauna and Sam share with each other. Have a look at the images below and you’ll see what I mean.

Thanks and recognition needs to go to these suppliers: Jane Zwar did an amazing job as the celebrant, Hodgepodge Hire provided the vintage decor and furniture, Shauna’s stunning dress came from Stella York, Mt Cotton Retreat did all the catering and provided the bridal prep location, and Supermum Carrie and Superaunt Janet took care of the flowers :)

Emma and Troy did things their way for their wedding… and they totally nailed it. From Troy’s burgundy velvet jacket, to the Dr Seuss readings at the ceremony, to the magician at the end of the night rounding of the festivities, these two created a classy and super fun day. I’m pretty sure they decided to have it on a Monday so we could get the shot of them kissing on a busy intersection too :) Well, maybe that wasn’t the entire reason…  but the photo turned out good! The ceremony was held at the Brisbane Powerhouse and conducted by the inimitable Josh Withers, and the reception was at Malt Dining. For the photoshoot we wandered the Brisbane streets, attracting a few surprised looks and lots of well-wishes. Have a look at how this wedding unfolded below… Look out for comedic magician Mike Tyler blowing a few minds in the last few images. Thanks to these other fine suppliers:

Flowers: Kate Dawes Flower Design

Dress: Monique Lhuillier

Suit: The Cloakroom

Opportunities to photograph a wedding in the US don’t come up too often, but the opportunity to photograph Toby and Megs’s wedding will only come up once in a lifetime. And they really put on a once in a lifetime event. A stone’s throw from Ludlow, Vermont and just around the corner from the home of two industrious beavers and some guy with a magical hat; surrounded by lush forests, thousands upon thousands of friendly bears, and friends and family from across the world, Tobez and Megs got hitched. Everyone there partook in three days of emotion, love, smiles, tears, general good times and enough Bloody Mary’s to fill Echo Lake twice over. Friends became family, families became family, and everyone present left with enough warm fuzzies to last them until Thanksgiving 2042. Amazing wedding guys, keep those smiles going, your happiness and enthusiasm rubs off on everyone you cross paths with. (Except the bears… the existence of which is still up in the air!)

Sam and Telisha travelled a long way to exchange their vows… all the way from their home in sunny London to the beautiful beaches of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. They brought a bunch of their friends and family with them too… a happy group of souls intent on making the most of their Australian jaunt, and they started by making the most of this amazing wedding day. With the wedding ceremony at Maison La Plage Grove, and the lunchtime reception at Sails Restaurant, it was a true Noosa affair… even the weather was perfect. Lunchtime receptions are awesome I reckon… we could squeeze in two photoshoots and the light was perfect the entire day. A highlight for me was Sam and Telisha’s ‘first look’ moment… not a dry eye in the house (or Grove, in this case)! Congrats guys, and good luck with your life in London.

The vendors involved on this day were pretty spot on. Eloquent Weddings did all the planning; Mondo Floral Designs took care of all the flowers; Claire from the Beauty Spot did the makeup and Bethany was in charge of the hairdo’s; Ketrina Coffey did a fine job as the celebrant; and Trudy from Love Bird Weddings made sure all the styling fell into place. Oh and the photographer was some guy from Brisbane.

Emma and Troy are awesome for a number of reasons. One of the many is that they decided to get married on a Monday… shooting a wedding on a Monday was like a breath of fresh air, it was such a cool dynamic. One of the things it allowed us to do was head to the Edward Street intersection at Brisbane City peak hour and get a shot amongst the people crossing the road… it’s a shot that won’t always work on a weekend because there aren’t so many people walking around. I can’t wait to share the rest of this super cool wedding with you, for now I’ll just share this shot that I love.
