Camilla & Michael

A beautiful Byron Bay wedding today infused with a bit of Britain! The celebration of Camilla and Michael’s marriage is intimate and elegant- with plenty of personal touches and love. The love that is evident in their photographs.

They tell their story for us. “Michael and Camilla met in a little bar in Clapham, South London in March 2009. Camilla had been living in London for 6 months and Michael had only just moved over to the UK, from Australia. They got together more or less straight away following their first date and after a period of dating, moved in together in East London. Following a trip to Australia in May 2011, the couple decides to relocate to Australia which they did in the September of last year. The couple spent the first 6 months of their time here with Michael’s family in far north Queensland.

Now Michael surprised Camilla with his proposal last November after he returned from a week-long work trip away – they drove down to Mission beach, enjoyed a delicious meal and then went for a moon lit walk along the beach – As Michael got down on one knee Camilla said she couldn’t believe what was happening and wanted to remember every detail – the next thing she knew Michael said ‘ok let me try that again’ because Camilla – a little stunned -hadn’t said a word!! She finally worked it out and …well ..we all know the answer was yes! The couple then began planning their Byron Bay wedding and, having met in London, a British themed wedding seemed the obvious choice and a fun one at that. ”

Photographs are by ngg studios who take such graceful, peaceful photographs. Just the right mood for Camilla and Michael’s celebration!

“Sometimes we don’t say a word.
If I am a goofus on the roofus hollering my head off,
You are one too.
HOORAY!
That’s because you really like me.
You really like me, don’t you?
And I really like you back.
And you like me back and I like you back.
And that’s the way we keep on going every day.

If you go away, then I go away too;
or if I stay home, you send me a postcard.
I like you a lot because of that.
If I go away, I send you a postcard too.

If you find two four-leaf clovers, you give me one.
If I find four, I give you two.
If we only find three, we keep on looking.
Sometimes we have good luck,
and sometimes we don’t.

I like you because
I don’t know why
but everything that happens is nicer with you.
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you.
It must have been lonesome then.
I forget why I like you, but I do.
So many reasons.

If we had some hats and some flags
and some fire engines,
We could be a HOLIDAY.
We could be a CELEBRATION.
We could be a WHOLE PARADE.
See what I mean?
Even if it was the 999th of July,
I would go on choosing you.
And you would go on choosing me.
Over and over again.
That’s how it would happen every time.
I don’t know why.
I guess I don’t know why I really like you.
Why do I like you.
I guess I just like you. because I like you.”
