Lavender Bay is a perfect Sydney Harbour wedding ceremony location, with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the beautiful surrounds of Clark Park. The reception was held at the Palais room at Luna Park, in a room that has glass floor to ceiling views of Sydney Harbour. It was to be a dream Sydney wedding.
A wedding and reception by the beach, less than an hour from Sydney. It's a dream situation for most couples and surprisingly very affordable at The Lagoon Wollongong. I have been fortunate to shoot here a number of times and I have to admit it is close to the perfect wedding location near Sydney.
A Lord Howe Island Wedding is a destination wedding paradise. Lord Howe Island is a place where walking and cycling are the major modes of transportation. Whilst cars are available for hire, the island pace lends itself to a more gentle and relaxed method of exploring the island.
Nicole and Jason decide to write love letters to each other as part of their First Look.
As I read the letter it made me think of why we had arrived at this moment, it was a reflection of our lives together prior to our wedding day and reaffirmed to me that we should take time to enjoy the day together.
As an Army medic, Luke had seen enough heart ache to fill a lifetime. After being injured on an overseas deployment, Luke returned to Australia to see the rest of his life fall apart. During a painful recovery Luke met Jess through an online dating service. After just a few dates it was clear that she had reignited his soul.

Sam explained that it was popular in America for a number of reasons, but the one reason that attracted me the most was that it provided an opportunity for us to meet each other in a calm, private environment and settle our nerves before the big event. From the moment of the ceremony onwards we would be in public view, and probably very busy talking to people and enjoying ourselves, right through to the end of the night.
I was really against the idea at first but as I thought about it more it actually made a lot of sense in our situation. Having so many close family members who have passed away I was worried about how emotional the day would be. I thought it would be good to get some of that emotion out of the way while with just Bill and me there.
Brad and Jacqui had their first date exactly 12 months before their wedding day. Yet after meeting them you would think they had know each other for years. When I asked the groom why she was 'the one' he described someone that he could easily spend hours talking about anything and everything.
