Vendor Of The Week- Nerida McMurray Photography

by | Blog News, Bride


Could we be breathing in the first scents of Spring in Australia? Is that sunshine I see? And in the other hemisphere, are the leaves starting to turn? It’s Monday morning and time for our Vendor Of The Week! A nod to the supporters who make posting wedding goodness every day, possible!

This week’s Vendor Of The Week is Nerida McMurray Photography! Nerida’s fine art background led her to New York City where she fell in love with wedding photography. Nerida’s shooting style is crisp and clear with a beautiful mix of posed and unexpected moments captured.

Her fresh style makes her the preferred supplier or many of Sydney’s leading wedding venues and she’s been widely published in Australian wedding publications.

To learn a little more about Nerida, we asked her five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after five drink?

Summer time… Lychee Martini, Winter … glass of Kaesler or any red from the Barossa Valley :-)

Your favourite weekend getaway?

South Coast, Berry

Favourite restaurant?

Ventuno 21 Walsh Bay .  My husband and I love going here – all the staff are super friendly with great Italian food, coffee, wine, situated on the water… Just perfect.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

Well … If I’m not shooting a wedding I’ll be eating a breakfast tagine at Kazbah – it doesn’t get better than this and it’s walking distance from my house :-)

Your favourite wedding story?

Mine ! (You can check our Nerida’s wedding we featured here)

Snapshot Sunday – Stars In Her Eyes

by | Bride, Snapshot Sundays


I love this beautiful moment from Gill & Keith’s wedding (see more here) captured by Lillian & Leonard Wedding Photography.

There is pure gold in that moment. The one where you look into your loved one’s eyes for the first time on your wedding day.

Lisa and Dan Engaged

Lisa and Dan

A funky rock n roll engagement shoot today from Adelaide photographer Ryan Polei (and we can say rock n roll because he really does shoot a lot of it!) as an added bonus, you can even see the shoot in 3D here (using those 3D glasses you got at Avatar…or like me Toy Story 3).

There are lots of special places for Lisa & Dan in this shoot- a favourite cafe, a familiar stairwell, an antique market and the beautiful architecture of Adelaide.

Sunshine Yellow Bouquets

by | Bride, Flowers


With the rain that has come down this week and the sun that has struggled to peek through, I thought we needed a little piece of summer to get us through until Spring!

Yellow is such a beautiful colour in a wedding bouquet. There’s calla lilies, daffodils, daisies, roses, frangipanis, orchids, sunflowers, marigolds, snapdragons, freesias, honeysuckles, tulips and so many more!
