Amelia and Clint

If I lived by the beach, you can bet I’d be rising every morning sunrise, coffee in hand to watch the day break and the waves roll in. Amelia and Clint were joined by photographer Kristy Toepfer Photography at Manly Beach one cold Winter’s morning to capture their engagement photos as the sun rose over the water.

Of their funniest stories, the couple tell, “ Once Clint was trying to fix the washing machine, and forgot to put the hose back into the sink….the next time Amelia put a load of washing on, the whole apartment got flooded and she nearly broke her tailbone falling over in the kitchen!”

On what she loves about Clint, Amelia tells, “I love Clint’s amazing sense of humour – I am constantly laughing with (and at) him! I also love his passion for his work (he is a teacher), and his extreme loyalty towards me, his family and his friends.”

When Clint popped the question, it was a complete surprise. The story goes, “Clint surprised Amelia with a romantic weekend away at the beach…as they were watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand, Clint proposed while ‘their song’ played in the background.”

On what he loves about his future wife, Clint tells, “I love Amelia’s selflessness and empathy, that she loves me unconditionally and I love her beauty, inside and out!”

As the couple live together on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Manly was a natural photo spot. Amelia and Clint telling, “We live on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, so there was never any other option than a beach style shoot. We are also quite camera shy, so didn’t want to shoot to look forced or unnatural. The 6am start time on the first day of winter was definitely not our idea though, but the sunrise was absolutely gorgeous and the photos turned out perfectly!”

The temperature is dropping and this shoot inspired by the Winter sunshine seemed just the ticket to round out the true start to the colder seasons! This gorgeous winter sun wedding inspiration is to promote Sunshine Coast wedding fair A Darling Affair to be held at The Chapel Woombye on Saturday July, 19th.

Designed to be a wedding fair with a difference, visitors can enjoy a relaxed picnic in the Winter sun with live music while enjoying the vistas of the chapel and seeking out new wedding ideas from a talented bevy of wedding vendors. To give you a peek into what the wedding fair will be like, the team joined together a group of their talented vendors to create a shoot inspired by the relaxed Winter sunshine!

Fair organiser Carrie walks us through the shoot. “The Beauty Case painted Lani’s gorgeous lips with a fire engine red. Ladies if you have lips like Laini, flaunt it! It’s your best asset.”

Willow Bud created gorgeous floral arrangements for the shoot, Carrie telling, “A Darling Affair always thinks of practical things…sometimes bouquets get in the way and we love adorning our model brides with flowers. This time instead of the floral crown or a hand held posy of flowers Laini wore a large wrist corsage. This gives brides the hands free option to enjoy their day and gives it a more prom like feel and sweet little gift from your loving admirer – your husband to be.”

Love My Food  catered a decadent picnic. “Jordan being the lovely gentleman that he is, was sharing and dishing out the more-ish picnic food supplied by Love My Food. With our love gauges hitting an all time high and food in our bellies we were all inspired to go forth and create up a storm for the next event.”

Of course it can’t be a Queensland event without a pineapple right? Carrie tells, “To give it a quirky modern twist that A Darling Affair’s events are known for, Hayley from Wholehearted Studio added pineapple cushions, a bush radio, whimsical giant balloons, and the newest supplier to hit the scene - Frozen Sunshine with their oh so delicious handcrafted ice block range.”

Lucky couple Laini and Jordan acted as models for the shoot, captured by When Elephant Met Zebra. “Real life couple Laini & Jordan are one of those loved up couples the ADA team swoon over. Photographer Brian from When Elephant Met Zebra said this has been his favourite shoot ever. Laini & Jordan naturally slipped in and out of poses and their deep love and connection seeped through the lens of the camera.”

Of course, it can’t be a bridal fair without gorgeous gowns and dapper suits. Both of which made an appearance in the shoot. Carrie remarking, “Laini was dressed in a gown by Judy Copley Bridal, the gorgeous tulle layered dress sent off a vintage and flirty feel. Jordan was head to toe in Urbbana Men’s Style Studio. Looking dapper with his suspenders.”

The final finishing floral touch from Willow Bud was a beautiful door wreath. “Willow Bud florist Sandi, blew us away with a gorgeous wreath to be hung as a back drop feature on the big chapel doors.”
