Anna & Anthony {Moree wedding}

I can’t think of a better way to get back into blogging my recent session, than with Anna & Anthony’s beautiful wedding. If you don’t follow me on Facebook, you may have missed their gorgeous farm engagement session back in June. Earlier this month, Moree turned on it’s best weather for my first wedding for the 2015/16 season.  I knew it was going to be an awesome day when I walked into the motel and discovered Anna is a girl after my own Austen-loving heart:

I love personal touches in weddings, and they don’t come much sweeter than this addition to Anna’s bouquet – her “something blue”, a beautiful ring gifted by her soon-to-be-mother-in-law stitched onto her bouquet:bouquet of flowers - Moree wedding

By “beat weathr”, of course, I mean stinking hot, as only Moree can be in October. It could have been worse though – while I was dressed in dark colours, I did have short sleeves, unlike these dapper gentlemen I found when I arrived at St Xavier’s Catholic Church:Moree groom and grromsmen outside St Xaviers Catholic Church

 

After the ceremony we headed back to the same location we shot their engagement photos, and revisited some favourite spots:blog-6921-007-2edit

Congratulations Anthony & Anna, it was such a pleasure to be a part of your special day.

 

Lisa & Tim :: {wedding}

Lisa is from England, Tim, from Inverell. So with family on opposites sides of the world, they decided to have two weddings, and I was lucky enough to be there to photograph their Australian ceremony. A flower-draped tea-length dress, gingham table runners with flowers in jam jars, a choreographed first dance, and a dress-up photo booth, their wedding oozed personality. I first caught up with Lisa and her lovely sister-in-law/bridesmaid Laura (better know to you Inverell locals as Miss Laura of Craze Dance Academy fame!), as they put the finishing touches on their preparations. A few beautiful bridal portraits, and then we left the girls to gather their thoughts as we headed to the Inverell Salavation Army hall for the lovely ceremony, before all the guests piled onto a bus to the Pioneer Village. And what a great spot for a party, and plenty of photo opportunities! Congratulations Tim & Lisa, and thank you for having me be part of your day.

 

You can also find Lisa and Tim’s photos on Facebook, and a slideshow on Vimeo.

 

 

 

 

 

Logan and Katrina {slideshow}

I woke at 2am to the sound of rain gently tapping on the roof above me. At 6, the soft grey light of morning filtering through the curtains was dulled by cloud, and the tapping continued. With my bags packed, an umbrella included, I turned up the CD player and headed toward Gravesend, watching the skies all the while. As I came through Delungra, a hint of blue was peeking through in the distance. The road was dry by Warialda. Though the sky remained cloudy, the outdoor ceremony went off without a hitch, and just as the ceremony ended, a light drizzle started. We managed to get through the family photos, and the rain started to get a bit heavier. And yet, just 5 minutes later, it was gone, and soon enough, the clouds parted and we were surrounded by blue skies, and later, partied under a star-lit sky.

Congratulations Logan and Katrina. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful, and it was a joy to be a part of it.
