jennifer and vaughan / sirromet winery

things don’t always go to plan.

how you imagined your wedding day and the reality of what mother nature provides are often two different things.

embrace it. it’s no big deal.

love the elements within your control, and let go of what you can’t.

often it’s better than you could have imagined.

this is the day your family becomes official.

savour every. precious. moment.

khaila and clinton / a letter to her 10 year old self

a letter to her 10 year old self…

“I am giving you permission to slow down…

to just be.

to embrace each moment and feel it fully, rather than already move on to the next.

to know that life can be only lived in the present moment.

and our soul can only be heard when we are still enough to listen…”

khaila and clinton.

sinta and anthony / byron plantation

planned from start to finish in under 6 weeks.

just incredible.

anthony + sinta + little imani had visited byron plantation just over a month prior to plant a tree when they decided it was time to make their family official.

it was an easy choice for them where it was going to happen.

and to say I was fortunate to be available to be there is indeed an understatement.

anthony’s preparations byron at byron; planning by roxy from frank and joy; flowery goodness by estelle from the french petal; ceremony performed by audrey fisher; photography by kate from bushturkey; feast by jane + team from the harvest cafe; transport by the london bus; party sounds by matt from north coast entertainment; and a special huge thanks to peter and wendy from byron plantation for opening their doors + hearts to allow this celebration

Philip Bradley - Thanks cinta and anthony for putting your wedding on Facebook I really enjoyed watching it thanks again byexx

Melissa Bovill - Made me cry! I wish we could have been there xxxx

Maria Birch - Amazing work as always Matt, your captured Sinta and Anthonys day beautifully! x

a wedding kept under wraps / rachel and chris

it has to be said…

planning a wedding yourself can be a major, sometimes even a daunting task. it can take a huge amount of time and attention and challenges. it’s not for the fainthearted and this is why great wedding planners exist.

so – imagine doing all of this, all by yourself, and at the same time keeping it all under wraps. barely anyone to bounce ideas off, allocate various tasks to or confide in.

this is what rachel and chris undertook. rachel is a photographer herself so she knew what she was up for, and she just did it.

they didn’t want anyone to go to any trouble…no cards, no new outfits, no gifts, no fuss.

‘come to our engagement party’ they told their friends and family.

‘just come celebrate with us’

it was only 2 weeks prior that they told their parents what was happening. and that they didn’t need to do a thing.

everything had already been organised.

add to all this a first look, some secret messages read around a corner from each other, a cracking party with a sparkler lit first dance, and it’s very rare that you’re a part of a celebration like this.

in the rhetorical words of chris’ dad ~ ‘how good is life?’

rachel and chris’ preparations at lyndoch by the lake; making up by house of glamour; hair by shannon from glamour hair design; flowers and ceremony arch by alstonville florist; ceremony performed by jo kilburn; photo taking goodness by lauren + tara; sky daddy trio rocked the party; and a massive thanks to tony + kim from down converys lane for opening their place and making everyone so welcome
