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

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

katie and lee | mum – it says ‘happy wedding’

there’s something inherently beautiful about any family unit, whatever the dynamics or make up of it.

witnessing the energy and love that parents pour into their kids is something special.

katie and lee had booked me for their wedding quite some time ago but it was postponed for 12+ months when their family of 3 expanded by +1 with little daisy.

the day spent with them was as fun as it was inspiring – and that’s saying something.

“mum – it says ‘happy wedding’…”

K&C @ DB

this journey I’m on. these couples I meet…and these celebrations I get to witness and play some small part in.

amazing.

two people, two families and two cultures coming together. that’s what this day was all about and everyone involved was so, so fortunate to be included.

what a trip this journey is.

looking back, looking forward and georgina and rhys

~ looking back ~

if I was one for penning new years resolutions, on 1st january 2012 there’s no way I could have wished for a better year. it has been something special.

I could go on and on about it but I’d rather be brief. I have met so many special people, witnessed so many inspiring moments, and been let into so many families celebrations.

I’ve worked hard and grown a lot. I’ve also been constantly reminded how fortunate I am – it is something I don’t take for granted.

~ looking forward ~

as I look through my diary for 2013 I can’t wait for what’s on the horizon. I have one more wedding to shoot for 2012 and after that I’m taking an extended hiatus. it’s time to step back, rest, reassess a few things, and to reconnect.

a huge thank you for all of your support through this year. I wish you, your families and loved ones a very safe and happy festive season.

~ georgina and rhys ~

on christmas eve 2011 rhys proposed to georgina. shortly after that she contacted me and checked what dates I had available. I knew I had to be a part of it.

their day was immaculately styled, beautifully warm, and overflowing with reminders of the importance of family relationships.

I can’t think of any better way to finish the year than sharing their wedding film with you.

I loved it.
