You know how it is when you meet someone and you just click… that’s how it was with Maddie and Nath when we sat down to chat about what they had in mind for their wedding day, almost a year out from
It’s impossible to really know what a wedding is going to be like, before the day kicks off. Sure, you can get a feel from the couple and a sense of the style of wedding they’re
When a bride-to-be says their wedding is going to be different… a lot different form the usual, it’s pretty easy to think… yeah, sure, I’ve heard a lot of couples say…

It’s no secret that Bells at Killcare is one of my favourite wedding venues on the Central Coast. I get excited at the thought of a wedding here because it usually says something special about the couple getting married. A couple that chooses Bells has super high values on how they want their wedding to be… elegant, classy, sophisticated and fun. Michelle and Liam and the day they were planning fit that ‘mould’ perfectly. Read, in Michelle’s words below, a little more about her
“Fairy tale wedding” gets thrown around way too often these days and it’s a phrase I tend to steer clear of except when a wedding really does feel like stepping into an imaginary moment that just couldn’t exist in real life. When Tahlia arrived (as a total surprise to everyone) in a white carriage pulled by two grand white horses into her Hunter Valley Garden wedding, it was a jaw dropping, air gasping, make believe moment. The day didn’t start like that though
Hey, it Andrew here… I’m the one that puts these blog posts together but Corey is the photographer for this beautiful Central Coast wedding. Although I wasn’t part of the day, the honesty, advice, love and helpful hints that Alice has put into this post makes me feel like I was there for every step of the way. Reading a few of the quotes, there’s absolutely no denying, this was a dream day for Alice and Joel at their Shelly Beach Golf Club wedding.
Below are some questions I put to Alice, along with her beautiful, helpful answers to help with your
It’s strange that after fifteen years as a photographer to still feel nerves on the way to a wedding. I definitely had a case of the butterflies on the drive down to this wedding. I was questioning (myself) why? I was guessing that is was a big Sydney wedding or that the ceremony and reception were taking place at the exclusive Royal Sydney Golf Club, or the gown was something very special by
Every couple planning a Central Coast wedding would do anything to have the day that Ash and Matt had at Magenta Shores earlier this year. Although I was responsible for the wedding photography and had a fair idea of how the day was meant to run, I think I can safely assume that everything went entirely to plan… the weather, the location, the guests, the bridal party, the speeches, the emotion and of course, two of the most gorgeous flower girls you could ever wish for.
Of course, with any wedding day, there are always things that can and do go wrong. In fact, it’s usually the
Finding a car park at Manly Beach on a Saturday lunchtime is always going to be a challenge, especially when you definitely have to be somewhere on time. I sniffed out a tight spot between a world famous Manly pine tree and a bunch of trendy motor scooters with plenty of time to meet Aaron and the guys making preparations for today’s wedding.
It’s always very cool for a wedding photographer to turn up and be greeted by familiar faces and that’s
The smile on Lauren’s face was one that left her just glowing as she approached Luke, patiently waiting in the shade of the large umbrellas on the warm sand. The sight of Lauren, on the arm of her dad Percy, was immediate confirmation that she
If ever there was a romantic way to describe a wedding day or imagine the courtship of two people, it has to be: the pilot marries the doctor. Just saying it out loud feels like scene from a hollywood movie. Although it’s been a little while since their wedding, I just had to share this perfect day on the blog.
What made it the perfect day? There were a lot of things; the laughter, friends and family, the locations, the gorgeous guests, an amazing gown but none of these are really what makes one wedding more perfect than another. What made this day perfect was the little hand squeezes between Luke and Chantelle, the quick glances and
Have you seen that look in the blockbuster movie wedding… the killer smile from the bride reserved solely for the groom. The groom gently squeezes her hand and returns that look for reassurance at the altar. You get that feeling that it would be a tragedy for them to be apart… THAT WAS THIS WEDDING! I was there, I saw it unfold. Except there was no
“Here they come… I think that might be them in the distance” I was chatting to the owner of Lucy, the biplane Racheal had organised for photos on her wedding day. I was standing on a dirt road beside a newish hanger at the Hunter Valley airport, not far from Peterson House, where the
Living the dream is a term that gets thrown around a lot. Usually though it’s in regard to to a great day out, sitting by the pool on a resort holiday or even kicking back with a beer on a weekday when everyone else is working. For Danielle and Ian, their wedding on the Northern Beaches earlier this year was the start line for the most amazing holiday/trip/experience… I don’t know what to call it but there’s a
Most wedding are fantastic, in my experience anyway. Most weddings though, are a compromise of some sort and the couple usually have to adjust things to suit. Megan and Dan though, were lucky enough to plan and experience the perfect Central Coast garden wedding with no compromises, it was
How good are weddings that stray a little from the usual – I can’t wait to share all the details. The wedding of Tiana and Ben was a stunning Hunter Valley wedding and one that will stay with me for a long time; not only for its little differences but for the fun, happiness and love that was shared by EVERYONE.
It was a spectacularly awesome day. One of the major differences was
