Kathryn & Brett | Wedding

It’s hard to know where to begin to describe Kathryn & Brett’s wedding.

Arriving at the house in Byron Bay the day before and being greeted by a family I already knew was extremely special. You see, I’ve photographed Kathryn before, when she was Carly’s bridesmaid back in March.

Being able to witness, capture and be a part of two major chapters in one family’s book is a great privilege.

The weather on the Friday was a little dicey with pretty strong winds, and while the forecast said it’d be gone by morning, everyone was pretty doubtful. When I woke in the morning however, it was perfectly still, setting the stage for one incredible day.

The girls got ready at the Tree House just up the road from everyone else. There was not a hint of stress in the air at all.

The ceremony was held on Wategos Beach in the pre-dawn light, with the sun appearing over the headland just as they began their vows!

A divine champagne breakfast followed on the deck back at the house. I adored the elegance in it’s simplicity.

By midday the formalities were over, and it time for naps and a swim at the beach. Bliss!

Congratulations again Kathryn & Brett!!!!
