Elle & Marc's Slate Phuket, Thailand Wedding Sneak Peek

It is not often an email comes through asking are you free to photograph a wedding in Thailand, umm ok, let me check my calendar, yep, turns out I'm available Elle and Marc, see you in sunny Thailand! I am utter and totally stoked to be part of their wedding day, the whole day was an amazing experience hosted at the luxurious Slate Resort in Nai Yang. 

Elle and Marc's story starts back in 2009 in Singapore, where a love blossomed but later ended up having oceans between them when Elle moved to Australia for university. Flying and Skyping became the norm for a while before Marc moved his life to the Gold Coast to join Elle. Fast forward to now, they have built friendships that span world (as well as family) testament to their 26 strong bridal party. I stayed until the end of the reception to capture the ultimate party under the stars complete with a traditional Tongan dance to cap off the night.

I hope you enjoy the sneak peek, if you would like to employ my services anywhere in the world, feel free to email me.

Naomi & Cameron's Swallowfield Vineyard Wedding Sneak Peek

In late December i was able to return to one of my favourite venues, Swallowfield Vineyards in Gembrook for Naomi and Cameron's beautiful summer wedding. Before the tear jerking ceremony under the majestic oak tree, we got to explore the luscious grounds with the tons of fun bridal party. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek, more to come soon.

Amanda & Nathan's Swallowfield Winery Wedding Sneak Peek

I love a short and sweet wedding, combined with incredible weather and the best styling I have ever seen, Amanda and Nathan's wedding was truly a special day. They gathered their closest friends and family and got to share a really fun day full of emotion with their two young boys Dion and Lachlan. I'd highly recommend Swallowfield Vineyards, there is something to experience in every corner of this beautiful part of Gembrook.

Kathleen and Shaun's Corowa New South Wales Chocolate & Whisky Factory Wedding - Sneak Peek

Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful wedding between Kathleen and Shaun on the New South Wales/Victoria border in the stunning country town of Corowa. The area has been hit with flood waters, but luckily it didn't affect their day. After a ceremony at St Mary's Catholic Church, the day was followed up at the gorgeous Corowa Chocolate and Whisky Factory. I could have took pictures for hours here. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned for the full blog post by following my social media pages.

Melissa & Matt's Richmond, Melbourne Wedding at Mountain Goat Brewery

I am pleased to bring you the full blog post of Melissa and Matt's gorgeous Richmond Wedding, a day that reflected their fun loving and relaxed style. The day started off with nuptials being said at the luxe Amora Hotel courtyard, followed by a leisurely stroll through Richmond on foot with no set locations or time lines, just good banter with the bridal party which made for photography gold. The party ensued at the Mountain Goat Brewery just down the road, styled to the max by One Day Your Way     where heartfelt speeches were heard and feet moved to the tunes. 

I loved capturing this wedding, a couple so in love with each other, awesome close family and friends and a truly easy going flow on the day....It is my best work yet I think.

Julie & John's Wedding Stillwater at Crittenden Wedding

You saw Julie and John's beautiful Temple Blessing at the Hoa Nghiem Buddhist Temple in Springvale, now it is time for their stunning wedding at the ever popular Stillwater at Crittenden in Dromana. All the styling from the dress to the table decorations screamed class and sophistication that was a dream to photograph, not to mention jostling for space on the dance floor with the most epic dancing I have ever seen at a wedding, dodging high kicks and swaying arms all jumping around to the Zorba tunes. The winter weather held off stunning day, right until sunset allowing us to capture some great formal portraits down by the vineyard and lake. 

Enjoy the images, I certainly do as I can't stop looking them! Contact me for availability at your wedding.

Sharni & Ryan's Vintage Melbourne Wedding

Every couple I photograph for a wedding is special in some way and I enjoy every single one, but with Sharni and Ryan, the cute as a button factor was through the roof! There is nothing I love more than a vintage themed wedding, with amazing and quirky clothing selections and cool decorations. Combined with the awesome people, venues and the light on the day, I could not have hoped for any better here for the results I got on the day. For links to the venues see the sneak peek previously posted on the blog. Also a big thank you to Alexander Gardner for his assistance and photography on the day, he went above and beyond and captured some truly special images. I really want to share this wedding around, so good karma vibes will be sent your way when you post a comment and share using the FB share button or by using the Social Media widgets at the bottom of this post. Thanks, and until next time....
