This sweet little engagement shoot (the engagement shoot of Emma and Nick) comes straight from Mike & Amy Photographers and was shot at an old train station in Glenreagh, just near Coffs Harbour on the NSW coast.

The sweet shoot has a lovely old fashioned feel to it and is simple., relaxed and beautiful!

Have a lovely weekend!

Kate & Mike

An intimate wedding on the Hawkesbury River is a relaxed way to end the week I think. I love this wedding- from the very happy bride and groom, to the gorgeous food, styling and sunshine! Oh and wait until you see the cake!

Kate and Mike loosely themed their wedding around birds, but there were a few sweet tropical touches!

Photos today are by Milk & Honey Photography.

Kate and her bridesmaids got ready in a private home on the other side of the river and traveled by boat to the venue Peat’s Bite. Accessible only by water, Peat’s Bite¬† is only accessible by water, making it a truly special venue for guests! Kate carried a bouquet of creamy whites and soft pinks by Litsa Flowers.

The couple’s “bird theme” ran throughout the reception, from the seating chart to the bird’s nest decorations placed in between succulents along the tables.

The couple’s love of cheese led them to choose a true “cheese” cake for their wedding day! Topped with fresh fruits it was a hit with the guests.

Glittering fireworks were the perfect way to end the night.

Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us Kate and Mike! Congratulations! Thank you also to Milk & Honey Photography for sharing today’s photos with us!
