Mik and Phil
Phil and I had our wedding on the Central Coast of New South Wales, alongside Wamberal Beach and on top of Kincumber mountain. We both wanted to create a day where we and our guests felt relaxed and cozy with good food, good music and a laid-back vibe.
During the process of getting ready, we both loved being able to chill out, and enjoy the company of friends and family on the morning of our wedding. Phil and his mates hung out in the shed in their backyard and the girls and I laid around the house for the morning. Having people I knew to do our hair and makeup was awesome – they understood my vision of keeping things nice n breezy.; I didn’t want someone I didn’t know being part of my intimate morning.
The ceremony was held at EV Church in Terrigal. Phil’s grandpa married us and Phil’s dad performed the sermon which made the day very personal for us both. We had a big cheese platter, honey buzz cake from the local bakery and coffee for afternoon tea for all our guests that came to be there for us.
Our photographer, Daniel Ferris, decided to take us up to Kincumber mountain for our photos; he had us trekking into the middle of the bush (barefoot) for some of our photos, we had a ball of fun!
We also were lucky enough to have a full moon at our wedding! (unplanned) So we took that opportunity and went down to our local beach for some full moon beach shots with family.
Our reception was on the same beach at Wamberal Surf Club. We had a cocktail celebration but we tried to provide enough couches, bar tables and cafe seating for everyone. We had a local band, The Soul Traders play at the reception; they played soul music and Motown classics that everyone had a big boogie too. Dresses were hitched, ties came off and everyone had a big boogie. The dance floor was definitely a highlight and created a very relaxed, low-key, get silly vibe. Our cake was banana cake, and was made by an awesome lady who has known me since I was born. Keeping friends in the planning of our wedding made it super easy and heaps more personal!
