Jacqui & Bryce were married in April at the incredible Orara Valley Estate near Coffs Harbour.

Jacqui wore the most beautiful lace dress that fit her like a glove.

The ceremony setup was simply divine. I loved the way they incorporated the surfboard into the hinterland backdrop.

Nothing like a beaming bride and groom as they see each other for the first time.

Instead of exchanging their vows verbally, Jacqui & Bryce handed each other a piece of paper and read them in silence. It was one of the most incredible things to watch, seeing their emotions change over and over without having a clue what was actually written.

After a few quick bridal party & couple portraits, I spent the rest of the afternoon capturing everyone mingling in the afternoon sun and playing lawn games.

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.
