Jess and Celia say I Do

A snippet of Jess and Celia’s perfect wedding day in Yamba, NSW.

“My darling Celia, ever since I met you, I’ve wanted to tell you everything. I share with you a part of myself that no one else sees. I find you hilarious and you never cease to delight me with your silliness. Your intelligence and your constant curiosity and growth amaze me. I can’t wait to meet you again and again in the years to come. Discovering you is so exciting. And you are beautiful – the most babin’ of babes. Looking into your eyes as I hold you in my arms is one of the best things in my life. I am whole, a body onto myself, but I am drawn to you with gravity that I do not want to resist. I want to marry you because you are a bright star in my sky and I want to stargaze forever. All my love, my soon to be wife”.

Jess and Joe say I Do

Jess and Joe met in Canada when Jess was there traveling. Since then they’ve lived in a few places around the globe, had a beautiful boy and recently tied the knot in Patong, in a beautiful intimate ceremony overlooking the water with gorgeous backlighting. Their wedding day was relaxed, playful and intimate; here are glimpses of the day…Jessmyn and Joe_Breathing Light_Thailand Wedding_001 Jessmyn and Joe_Breathing Light_Thailand Wedding_002 Jessmyn and

The universe is made of tiny stories

“And we are the scientists, trying to make sense of the stars inside us” Christopher Poindexter.
Dana and Daniel share a quiet moment whilst their guests can be seen dancing inside the Granary in Belgenney Farm. The expansive grounds, the light around them – it is all so symbolic of the love and adventure that awaits them.

Bianca and Russ say ‘I Do’ at Mali Brae Farm

I want to start this wedding off with an excerpt that Bianca sent me from the novel Jane Eyre. It is beautiful reflection of her and Russ:

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you. You are my sympathy – my better self – my good angel; I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you – and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one”. Charlotte Bronte

Bianca and Russ said ‘I Do’ at Mali Brae Farm. It was my first time there and hopefully not my last. They got ready in cosy little cottages with a view of the whole farm and had a warm open fire going inside.
The ceremony was short and sweet before we explored the farm and took some photos under the magical sun. She had a mother-daughter dance which was incredibly special as they have a bond you can spot a mile away.

It was a wonderfully intimate day, below is the story from my eyes.

How beautiful is this light?

Persia and Josh’ intimate exchange of vows

This is a special little blogpost for me. I have known Persia for a little while now, in fact, since I fell in love with yoga 5-6 years ago! She is a wonderful yoga teacher who brings an intention to all her classes. Without knowing it, her presence and open-hearted classes have helped me view the world with more grace and gratitude. Two elements which have shaped my approach to life and photography. It was wonderful to meet Josh and to document their intimate exchange of vows in front of close family and friends.

Katie and Andrew say ‘I Do’ at Gunners Barracks

One of my favourite parts of a wedding are the speeches. I get to see into the couples lives that led them to make a lifetime vow to one another. It’s a special treat to see their parents up there, speaking animatedly of embarrassing childhood tales, ending with a story or two of just how special their child is. It’s heart-bursting material. I almost always leave with a new philosophy to go by so I want to tell you what touched me with this particular wedding.

Katie’s dad got up and after mentioning all her achievements he finished off with a story about a lesson his daughter had taught him. In times of stress, Katie always said “Don’t waste a worry”.
It doesn’t sound like much til you think about it. That perhaps, in life, you get a jar of feelings similar to a pack of Allen’s lollies (on a side note, please read this very funny complaint to Allen’s about their lack of variety). And in this jar of feelings, you only got a few ‘worries’.
When you think about it that way “Don’t waste a worry” becomes such a wise attitude. That we have to use our ‘worries’ sparingly as we only get a few. It is a seed to plant a more positive and trusting outlook to life, and a mentality many people are only able to have in retrospect.

Here are some of my favourite photos of the lovely Katie and Andrew, followed by a slideshow of their sweet day.

Much love and blessings to you both!

Natalia and Adam

Natalia and I met when we were both studying Nursing. She is now a Registered Nurse at Westmead’s Children’s Hospital and I can’t think of a more perfect career for her. She is so warm and I just know she makes all the little ones in the hospital and their parents feel comforted and at ease :) I love hearing her stories of the kids and their amazing parents and the intimacy of it all. So anyway a few months ago Natalia told me she had gotten engaged! We met up for coffee and had a chat and then she asked me to photograph her wedding day! I was so giddy as her warmth and smiley nature really shines through, as you will be able to see in the photos below. I left this shoot feeling so happy and I think they did too! Natalia and Adam I can’t wait for your special day! Here are a few pictures to hold us off til then :)

I love this post-kiss-lipstick-wipe-off  :)And I love Adam’s expression hereLots of love to you guys :) Can’t wait for September! Tessa
