Bride's Testimonials

I think it is lovely to be acknowledged for doing a good job and I love it when I receive so many spontaneous testimonials from couples whose weddings I have captured.  Here are just a few I have received:

The photos are so lovely. You did a wonderful job capturing absolutely everything on our wedding day! It was so lovely to look back through all our magical moments. Thank you so much, and a big thank you for travelling to Sydney. The effort and passion that goes into your work shows through your beautiful images. Not only are your photos great, but you are an easy going person to be around, which we wall enjoyed and helped our day run smoothly. We highly recommend you to anyone.

I am so HAPPY with my wedding photos. You have done such a great job Nicolette. The way you have captured the essence of my family and friends is so artistic. Thank you so much, you have made my dreams of the wedding pics come true.
Central Coast Wedding Photographer
Tracey and Ron, Central Coast, NSW

Our Photos are amazing. Nicolette captured candid moments, frozen dance moves and a least one photo of every person that was at the Reception, and there were close to 100! Our formal shots are amazing, she used the staircase at Crowne Plaza for maximum benefit and the shots on the beach were perfect. We couldn’t recommend a better photographer
Wedding Photographer Central Coast
David and Rebecca, Central Coast, NSW

Thank you for playing such a huge role on our wedding day and capturing all of our special moments on camera. We absolutely LOVE our photos. You were extremely professional, prompt, relaxed and adapted easily to all of our needs. We enjoyed seeing the teaser photos online while we were on our honeymoon! We will be recommending you to all of our friends

Mack and myself along with our family and friends would like to say a massive thank you for the fabulous effort you put into our special day!!! From the pre wedding photoshoot to the actual day itself, you were very professional as were the photos, and everyone who comes across the pictures asks us who we went with for photography because they are all so perfect! We are very grateful and believe we chose very wisely!
Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer
Chantelle and Mack, Central Coast, NSW

Just wanted to say thank you so much for being part of our special day. The photos are fantastic and you have really caught every perfect moment. You understood and delivered exactly what we wanted. Every part of the day from getting dressed, walking down the aisle and dancing our first dance were captured. We are so pleased that we found you …. we not only thought you were amazing at photography but you are also an amazing person who was easy to have around. Once again thanks for everything and we will be recommending you to anyone and everyone

Sarah and Sam, Wellington (NZ)

John and I would both like to say thank you so much Nicolette Gregory for being our wedding photographer in April. The photos are truly amazing! I love all of them, and cannot believe how many you took. I thought the reflection photos in the mirrors were especially clever! John really loved the pre wedding photo shoot, as it helped him relax for the photos on the big day and also gave us many beautiful pictures to look back at. You managed to capture every single moment of our special day perfectly. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs a photographer. Again, thank you so much, and please feel free to use any of the photos you took on your webpage or elsewhere

Artistique Wedding Photography Philosophy

I thought it was time I wrote a little blog about Me, the Photographer behind Artistique Wedding Photography, so here goes: 

I am an Accredited Professional Photographer based at Toowoon Bay, Central Coast, NSW. Member of MPA (Master Photographer Assn), WPPI & AIPP.
Wedding Photography is my passion, there is something magical about capturing a couple’s Wedding Day and each wedding is unique.

There is no one style I photograph, but more a culmination of traditional, contemporary, mix of modern photojournalism, fun and creativity.  I capture the spontaneity, joy and excitement of your Wedding Day; nothing is more beautiful than real smiles and enchanting glances, creating memories that last forever holding sentimental value through the generations.

I have over 6 years’ experience, having captured over 150 weddings in many different locations and weather conditions, cultures and customs on the Central Coast NSW, Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Sydney, Wollongong and New Zealand.

I fit in like a guest at your wedding, have a relaxed yet professional style and for those who may be a little nervous, there is the added bonus of an inclusive pre wedding photo session.  You can be assured there are lots of laughs and couples often say to me how at ease I made the feel on their Wedding Day and how much fun it was. 

I am told my photographs look different to a lot of others; light and composition are also very important in capturing beautiful images.  I love working with natural light.

We are very lucky on the Central Coast with beautiful locations for beach weddings and an hour away the beautiful vineyards of the Hunter Valley.  I can help you decide the best location for your wedding along with other wedding suppliers, celebrants, make up artists, florists, cake makers etc.

I offer a range of affordable Wedding Photography Packages (recently updated) along with the option for a tailor made package.  I undertake Family Portrait, Maternity, Engagement and other photographic work also.  

I offer one of the best Wedding Photography experiences on the Central Coast, Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Sydney and beyond.

Chris and Katie's Pre Wedding Photo Session


Katie and Chris finally had their beautiful sunset pre wedding photo session on Sunday.  After (3) postponements due to wet weather on the Central Coast NSW over 2 - 3 weeks, I rescheduled the photo session yet again, looking at the weather forecast several days out from the previous booking date.  The venue was at the Crack Neck Lookout at the top of Bateau Bay, Central Coast and the weather just perfect.  We had a lot of fun!

Katie and Chris will be marrying in just a few days time at a beautiful church location in Gosford and I shall be posting a Blog of their wedding after next weekend.

Here are some photos from their pre wedding / engagement photo session.  I include this one hour (in the hour before sunset where the light is most beautiful and romantic) in my three standard packages for Wedding Photography.  Otherwise, I offer it as a separate Engagement Package also listed in my Photography Packages.  There are some beautiful locations here on the Central Coast, from beautiful Somersby Falls, to Norah Head Rock Platform/beach, Long Jetty and many other spots along the coast.

Artistique Wedding Photography - Chloe and Jordan's pre wedding Photo Session

Artistique Wedding Photography

Chloe & Jordan's pre wedding Photo Session

Sunday 12 March 2017 at Norah Head, Central Coast, NSW

It was a wild windy day, but fortunately no rain for Chloe and Jordan's photo session at the rock platform at Norah Head.  We had a lot of wind blown fun! 

 I include a one hour outdoor photo session in my 3 standard wedding photography packages.  This is a great opportunity to see how the couple relate to one another in front of the camera and a closer rapport is built between myself and the couple as well.  Couples often say to me at the planning meeting that they hate having their photos taken, but after their pre wedding photo session I ask "how was that" and the response is, "it was fun, you made us feel at ease", and they get approx 40 nice photos as well!  The pre wedding photo session is done in the few months prior to the wedding and at a location on the NSW Central Coast.  I have 4 locations that I recommend.

Here are a selection of photos from Chloe and Jordan's session and I am looking forward to capturing their beautiful wedding in the spring of 2017.  Hope you like the photos:

Artistique Wedding Photography - Rach and Will are Married

Artistique Wedding Photography

Rach and Will are Married - Wedding Ceremony and Formals.


Saturday 4 March 2017 at Bonnells Bay, NSW


Congratulations to Rach and Will on their beautiful wedding last Saturday. Everyone was a little apprehensive given the very bad weather report and no "wet weather" venue for their Wedding Ceremony. So, their Ceremony was to go ahead outside at Bonnells Bay on the shores of Lake Macquarie in rain, hail, wind or storm - and so it did! It rained heavily and umbrellas were held over the bride and groom during the Ceremony. I was grateful to my Assistant who was able to keep my camera/lens dry by holding a massive umbrella up and to know my every move in capturing their Ceremony for them and so keeping me dry! Guests were all huddled under umbrellas and the signing of the Register was done in the back of the Celebrant's car.

After the formal part of the day was over the bride and groom and my assistant and I moved to another nearby location for formal bridal party photos and took advantage of tiny breaks in the weather where heavy rain became drizzle and then it was back to heavy showers, wind and thunder soon began to roll in just as we were finishing off - good timing!  I always like to recommend to couples that they have a wet weather option, but we made it through, if not a little more than damp at the end of the formal photos!

After the ceremony Rach and Will had an informal Wedding Reception at their home just a walk around the corner from where their formal photos were.  You will see a photo of them walking home to begin their married life!

Here are just a few photos from Rach and Will's beautiful wedding day:
