Perth Family Love

I photographed Jeni & Chris’s wedding in November 2010 and felt soooo truly honoured when she asked me to capture these family moments.  We were blessed with a beautiful Autumn morning at Perth’s northern beaches, no wind, no flies, no other people.  Nothin but lurrrrrv and squeals of delight from their adorable children.

Thanks Jen, for choosing me to take part in these very special moments xxxx

Jimmy & Cindy’s Amaaaaazing Wedding – Nelson, New Zealand

When I bought my house in Doubleview just over 5 years ago I had no idea of the extra joy that would come with it.  That joy being in the form of my beautiful, adorable, hilarious neighbour Cindy & her man Jimmy.  Cindy & I are born a day apart (and ah-hem about 11 years in between).  She constantly makes me laugh & brings so much happiness to my life.  We remain close friends and I was even present when Jimmy popped the question, underwater (yep) in a little secluded bay at Rotto during Australia Day weekend last year.

I can’t tell you how amaaaazing it was to be part of their February wedding in the South Island, New Zealand in an adorable town called Nelson, their home town.  The small portion I saw of that breathtaking country has surely left me wanting to explore more.  I had wrist, neck and back ache from constantly picking up my camera.

Cindy & Jimmy wanted a casual, intimate ceremony with closest friends and family present.  People trecked from far and wide to witness their love and all were awe struck by the incredible views from the venue…a retreat high up in the hills owned by friends of Cindy’s parents.  Mother Nature turned it on and timed her clouds beautifully….slightly overcast for the ceremony and loads of sun for partayyyy time.  We were surrounded by rolling hills, endless water vistas, mountain goats, mooing cows, sheep of course, buzzing bumble bees, singing cicadas, good vibes, DJ-ing kids (gangnam style an extreeeemely obvious favourite groove), laughter, chatter and when the sun went down there was the glow of the town lights in the distance.

I am sooo glad I was there and feel blessed that I could capture the day for them.  Love you guys…long time…mwahhhh xxx

Cindy’s beautiful Mum spent countless hours making this LOVE HEART welcome sign plus other crafty decorations like the hay bale covers and bouquets.  Amazing 🙂

A sip of wine before Cind’s heads up the alter.  Wahhh…love it!

 

The moment of a very unique engagement @ Rotto.  Jimmy secured this note under a rock in the water and asked Cindy to go snorkelling.  She swam down and saw it and was so surprised she sucked her breath in and choked on her snorkel….awwww bless xxxx

Bali Wedding – Karma Kandara Resort – Uluwatu

Wow!  I have to say Karma Kandara in Uluwatu is THE most amaaaazing wedding venue I have seen to date.  The views, the cliffs, the hazey light, the architecture….breathtaking.  I was flown over in September to capture the lurrrrv between the effervescent Marcus and Brooke and had an amazing time.  Soooo excited, running around like a mad woman trying to choose between the copious options of where to photograph them.

There were crazy monkeys, a broken leg and a minor earthquake (a day later) which all added to the awesome time I/we had in the beautiful Island of the Gods.

Thanks guys for inviting me to be part of it xxx

It’s Rainin Love, Hallelujah!

Oh yes indeedy there was rain all around Mark & Jess on their wedding day….rain from the sky, raining tears, raining vibes of happiness, laughter, hilarious moments, etc, etc…you know the drill.  Whilst I was a tad paranoid about getting Jess’s amaaaazing dress by Kevin at Galleria Couture wet or muddy she was not concerned in the slightest.  Absoluuuuutely nothing was going to put a dampener on their happiness….sooo in love and happy and perfectly suited for each other.  Their jaw-droppingly beautiful reception at Frasers in Kings Park was the perfect window to watch the rain painting all sorts of colours and patterns over Perth.  What a beautiful day it was.  Just goes to show that my beloved rain can make backdrops even more majestic.  Mwah xxx
