Everything about Hannah & Mikey is non-traditional. They had originally planned to elope, but instead decided to have a party style wedding with friends and family before heading off on their originally planned elopement holiday. Their idea or a relaxed and fun wedding celebration was just up my alley. They decided to have a first look before the wedding and we had fun exploring the backstreets of beautiful Balmain which left more time to head straight to the party afterwards.
When asked who would sign their marriage registry, they couldn’t decide and so came up with the idea of drawing a name out of the hat to decide the two family or friends who would sign for them, Mikey folded 100 numbered heart shaped origamis to draw out on the day.

Jess and Ben kept telling their friends they were having an ‘elopement with family’. They wanted the day to be simple and elegant and incorporate all the things they love, including cake, coffee and family.
As Jess is currently training for a marathon, a normal weekend would include going for a run out to Brownlow Hill Loop Road and back into Camden for coffee and their wedding day was no exception… other than the lack of running. I think the day was exactly as they had envisaged it and was a beautiful celebration of love. The photos definitely make it look like something out of a page of a Jane Austen novel.

I second shot this beautiful wedding with the talented Gemma Clarke Photography at Merribee, a beautiful country homestead in Nowra. The effort Sam & Luke had put into every detail made for a photographers delight.Thank you to Gemma Clarke for allowing me to shoot this wedding as your second shooter, and to Sam & Luke for creating such a beautiful day to capture!
I second shot this gorgeous wedding with Gemma Clarke Photography in Finland. Gemma is a Sydney based photographer who travels quite often to shoot international weddings and is extremely talented at what she does. As I was living in London at the time, I jumped at the opportunity to be able to work with her on this side of the world! It was an amazing Finnish Barn wedding with lots of vintage lace, stunning scenery and gorgeous details and of course a lovely couple. Thanks for letting me join you for this most beautiful wedding, Gemma.
James & Vicky had the quintessential English wedding….well, at least I thought so, as it was the first English wedding I have been to.
I was particularly excited about her gorgeous juliet cap and the fact that they had a confetti recessional after they left the church…oh and a Piano man at the reception! This was definitely a fun wedding with some amazing people.

Matt & Liz were looking lovely and relaxed after their wedding in New Zealand and continued the celebrations back home in Sydney with friends and family at Matt’s family home, surrounded by candle lights and good food, especially the gorgeous cake made by a family friend.
My oldest friend, as in dating back to pre-school years, married the man of her dreams on her family property. Her very talented mum styled the whole event from chalkboard signs & cute games to carnival stalls with homemade lemonade, popcorn, fairy floss and ice-cream.
It was such a relaxed and laid back wedding, right down to them forgetting the rings at the altar! They were really lucky to escape the thunderstorms on the day, however the dark clouds made for beautiful photos!
