Fiona and Artie were married on the beach at Ettalong, Central Coast, NSW.  It was a windy day that had threatened to be very wet and windy right up until the morning of their wedding, but it stayed fine and we were able to make the most of this beautiful beach for our formal photos.  Here are a few photos from their beautiful wedding day:

Sophie and Gonzalo married at her paren't beautiful property in Matcham, Central Coast, NSW.   It was a day threatening to rain and just after the ceremony a few spots of rain came down, but cleared again which enabled us to spend longer outside.  Sophie's beautiful rustic wedding was held mid morning and a lunchtime Reception was held at The Haven, Terrigal.  Here are some photos from her recent wedding.

Saturday 14 October was a busy day for me, I managed to capture two weddings in one day!  A first for me and Chris and Steve were my afternoon wedding.  Earlier in the day I had captured Emily and Simon's wedding (previous post), and with careful planning and assurance that neither couple would change their ceremony times, all went to plan.  I travelled from Terrigal after finishing Emily and Simon's wedding at 1pm and was at Point Wolstoncroft to capture Chris and Steve exchange vows by 2.30pm for their 3pm wedding.  Here are some photos from Chris and Steve's lovely wedding day:

Emily and Simon were married in Terrigal on a very wet day, but that certainly didn't dampen their spirits on their wedding day.  They had formal photos in the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Terrigal followed by their lunchtime Reception.  Here are a few photos from their special day:

A First Wedding Anniversary Idea - Trash the Dress

Caves Beach, Central Coast, NSW


The idea to many brides of "Trashing their Wedding Dress" sounds absolutely dreadful, but it really depends on how you plan to do it!  I have captured many Trash the Dress Photo sessions, which I like to do either at sunrise or sunset as the light is the most beautiful and romantic and always at the beach.  Often a wedding dress is quite dirty around the bottom (especially if it has a train), and brides worry about whether the dirt will ever come out, even with dry cleaning.  I have had brides arrive for a trash the dress photo session at the beach and the bottom of the dress is dirty, but by the time the photo shoot is over, it is clean, apart from a bit of sand which nothing but a hose down will fix at home and then maybe if you still want to, take it off to the dry cleaners and it's ready for storing.

Yesterday I captured a couple who chose to Trash the Dress on their first wedding anniversary.  I suggested a beautiful nearby beach on the Central Coast as they had traveled up from Sydney and weren't too sure of a good sunrise location.  I chose Caves Beach, which has a beautiful rock cave and is absolutely beautiful at sunrise.  We arrived at first light and the dawn revealed some cloud in the sky which is an added bonus. For the next couple of hours we had a lot of fun and the "groom" surprised the "bride" and presented her with an eternity ring.  Here are some photos from yesterday morning, which I would like to share with you.
