I had the pleasure of shooting  a beautiful couple, Tess & Clint out at the famous Bonville Golf Resort in Bonville on the Coffs Coast. Although the location had to be changed at the last minute from out in the rain forrest to inside due to a big thunder storm, the rest of the wedding went off without a hitch. When I arrived at the brides preparation house there were a lot of details to shoot as this had been the family home for the past 20 years. So I decided to head out to the packing shed and find a few little locations to shoot around.

Tess seemed very calm for a bride who was only an hour or so away from saying “I Do”. Before Tess arrived the team at Bonville had worked hard to transform the inside location ready for the ceremony. This put us a little behind the scheduled 4pm kick off. But it was worth it. The room looked great and the ceremony was full of emotion.

After the ceremony the rain had passed and the sun shone brightly. We took advantage of the great break in the weather and headed back out to the family farm for the photo shoot. We had only 40 minutes to shoot a normal 1.5 hours session. But hey praise God for great lighting and a perfect location, not to mention a very accommodating bridal party.

Congrats Tess & Clint . Hope you like the pics!!!

Today was a very rare time for this part of the year where I had a weekend off. So I decided to head out to Bellingen with my gorgeous wife and have some lunch at Vintage Espresso Cafe, we then trekked out away from the town center for a few photos and a spot of fishing. I must say that she is the most beautiful pregnant wife you could ever pray for =) =)

Well this was the first wedding of the weekend and it was a great way to start. A beautiful location down by the lagoon at Opal Cover Resort Coffs Harbour. The weather was fantastic, it was pretty hot but when your on a location such as this you don’t seem to mind so much.

Amy’s dad would have to of been one of the most emotional father-of-the-brides I have ever photographed. He was amazing, from the moment he set his eyes on his little girl he was a goner.

We photographed the boys and the girls before hand and seems as though their rooms were only 25 meters away from each other we couldn’t risk going out side the doors. So all our before shot were done in their rooms.

After the ceremony we settled on location at Opal Cove and got some shots on the beach before we decided to head in to the Jetty where there were another 2 wedding parties lining up for photos. So we decided to do some shots on the beach first to give the others some time before we headed on up to get some shots for ourselves.

So a big congrats to the newly married couple and I can’t wait to catch up soon =)

The girls looked amazing….

Brendan got what he wanted with a southern cross in his wedding ring…

I love this little set up we had in the room =)

I love the emotion in this shot

Despite the clouds being around we got some really great lighting on some shots like this location…

We got a bit tricky here with a fish eye lens as the jetty was full of people. I think we did alright =)

Wow what a busy weekend! We had the honour of photographing 3 weddings. We were so blessed with the weather on both Saturday and Sunday, as the rain managed to hang off until we had finished our location shoots.

I decided to start with the Sunday wedding as it was the last of the weddings that I had imported.

The wedding of Bec & Jon was officiated by Wendy Haynes and the ceremony set of the lawn at the very popular Aanuka Beach Resort. The day started off hot and very humid. I felt sorry for the boys during our photo session before the ceremony. However, a few prayers and the prompt arrival of some gentle breeze and clouds before the start of the ceremony gave the boys a much needed reprieve.

After the ceremony we snapped a couple of photos of the bride and groom before we left for the Jetty as it looked like rain on the horizon. On the way we made a quick call to one of the local cafes to see if we could borrow one of their couches. So a big thank you to the boys at Urban Espresso Lounge for staying open that little bit longer to give us a totally rad red couch for a few creative shots.

Anyway I must say a big congratulations to Bec & Jon for your wedding and for letting me be apart of your special day =)

We grabbed a couple of shots on the lawn before we headed off to our locations.

What a funky colour for a lounge…Red!

What a beautiful location to have a wedding! Jones’ Park Valla Beach NSW… This place was very special for this lovely couple as it was the place where Michael popped the question to his gorgeous wife. We first met up with Carly and Michael a little while back to do an engagement shoot out at Bellingen. This was a great opportunity to get to know them and they could get a handle on my quirky style!

Carly wore an amazing dress, very unique. But the day would not have been complete unless we made a special visit back to the house to capture a few shots with their beloved parrot Alfie… Alfie and I had a great time together and he even managed to pose for a self portrait with me. What a champion =)

Anyway it was great to be apart of the wedding and I pray that Carly and Michael have a blessed and wonderful honeymoon! I can’t wait to catch up and give you the photos that are going to rock =)

These shoes really sparkled.

I really loved the flowers for the entire wedding…

Me and my new best mate Alfie….

Such a beautiful couple, they had this amazing love for each other that was just so evident in the photos that we captured.

Nice shoes ladies……

I loved the decorations, all thanks to Carly… WOW!!!
