Groom awaiting his bride

After the formalities of your ceremony, getting together with your bridal party for photographs is a time to relax and have fun as Brendan remembers about his Lord Howe Island destination wedding to Paula.

“Apart from seeing Paula and our daughter Harper walking towards me down the aisle, my favourite memory from our wedding day would have to be travelling around the island after the ceremony for the location photographs. We set out with our closest friends to find the coolest spots on the island whilst having a drink enjoying the great views, great company and great sunset.”

Simple, relaxed tailoring is always on trend and looks so smart. When choosing his outfit for his mountain top elopement, Joel decided upon a subtle window pane check patterned Brent Wilson suit and a buttonhole for understated elegance.

Yarra Valley Wedding

That perfect moment when you see your bride for the very first time on your wedding day is one that you will treasure always as Hamish remembers when thinking about his Stones of the Yarra Valley wedding to Vanessa.

“We decided to have our portrait photos taken before the ceremony, so we could maximise the time we spent with our guests. The first time I saw Vanessa in her dress was in a ‘first look’ sequence we shot at our accommodation. It was just the two of us, plus our photographer.”

“I could hear Vanessa approaching from behind, and by the time she reached for my hand, tears were welling in my eyes. My breath really was taken away in that moment. It was, and she looked, unbelievably perfect.”
