Wedding Reception at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel | Brenda & Daniel

Wedding Reception at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel | Brenda & Daniel

Brenda and Daniel deserved the wedding celebration of a lifetime. They're two of the most generous people you are ever likely to meet, and their friends and family are testament to this. I was fortunate enough to meet them before they were engaged for a couple session in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, and then again for some engagement photographs at Turimetta Beach.

We started off the day with Brenda getting ready at her mum's house. A surprise letter from Daniel, dad's first look of Brenda in her Grace Loves Lace gown, and all the finely tuned wedding preparations saw us ready for their beautiful ceremony at the Multicultural Bible Ministry. It was a ceremony full of laughter and happiness - and perhaps a few anxious nerves - but mostly big smiles, hugs, and pure celebration.

Wedding at Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley, NSW | Kat and Josh

We've said it before, there's just something about a country wedding (especially a Hunter Valley wedding) that brings out the good times! Kat and Josh's spring wedding was truly wonderful - a fantastic blue sky day, amazing ceremony and reception venue, their cute Yellow Labrador Luna acting as their ring-bearer, and a very easy couple who were quick to laugh and enjoy the day.

The day started at Bluebush Estate in Lovedale, where the couple and their bridal party got ready in separate houses. Having bride and groom prep in the same location is such a great idea; for photography purposes it saves time on travel between locations, meaning more photos for you! The bride and bridesmaids were driven to the ceremony in a cool Kombi Van

Brenda + Dan: Turimetta Beach Engagement Session

I met this lovely couple at one of our favourite secluded beaches in Sydney; Turimetta Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches. The combination of treelined walkways, stunning rock cliffs and golden sand makes this beach ideal for an engagement session.

This was our second photography session with Brenda and Dan. The third one will be coming up shortly at their wedding this spring! Can't wait to see them again and take part in their special day.

Leah + Rob: Peppers Creek Barrel Room Wedding, Hunter Valley

Leah and Rob's wedding was a beautiful day through and through. We’ve known Leah and her family for many years, and it was such an honour to be able to share it with them. There was a lot of raw emotion on the day (cue tears from Lindsey whilst editing the photos), which really shines through in the images.

We also really love this venue! Peppers Creek Chapel and Barrel Room were so lovely and full of character, and the gardens and lake were the perfect place for portraits. 

Nora + Ben: Cornwallis House Wedding, Hawkesbury River

Nora and Ben’s wedding was a magical event. Held completely outdoors at Cornwallis House Estate, the couple was blessed with a beautiful day and dinner under the stars. I loved their relaxed vibe, and their clear connection with each other, which shines through in the photographs.
