Robyn & Guy’s Kunghur Creek Wedding

If you’ve never been for a drive through the hills behind Murwillumbah, you’re missing out on some spectacular scenery. Mt Warning is usually captured as viewed from the coastal side, but it’s just as beautiful from other angles as well and it provided the perfect backdrop for Aussie expat Robyn and proper Englishman Guy’s wedding ceremony, from the vantage point of the homestead balcony on Robyn’s brother’s property in Kunghur. With a playlist curated by Guy and Robyn looking incredible in a classic lace tea-length dress, their wedding was far from the beginning of their story – instead it was a very important chapter, with plenty of adventure before it and plenty more to follow.

Thank you to Kerry Nijam for a lovely ceremony.

Jenna & James’ Byron Bay Wedding

Things have been quiet on the blog recently – not because I’ve had nothing to post, but because there has been too much to do! Sometimes being a sole trader, things can get away from you – but I finally have some time to catch up and reflect on the first half of the year, and it has been a pretty incredible six months.

Let’s start with Jenna and James, a long distance love story turned happily ever after. Their wedding day was a combination of rain and sunshine, laughter and tears (happy ones, of course) and with family and friends having travelled to Byron Bay from interstate and overseas, it was overflowing with love in every moment. The Figtree was the perfect backdrop, and in absolute Jenna-and-James style (as you may have noticed from their West End Engagement Date shoot) we even made time to stop for a coffee and a few snaps in their favourite local cafe. A beautiful Italian feast was served, glasses clinked, and a lively Tarantella danced – what more could you add to the recipe for a perfect wedding day? Special thanks to Kerry Nijam for a beautiful ceremony.

Faith & Heath’s Ewingsdale, Byron Bay Wedding

After a super-rainy start to the year like we’ve had, the golden sunshine that lit Faith and Heath’s glorious wedding day felt heaven-sent. It bathed the girls suite at Victoria’s at Ewingsdale in a soft, elegant glow to match the luxurious rooms. It sent rainbows over Eureka Uniting Church’s pews and Faith and Heath’s guests through the beautiful stained glass windows. Then it sank behind the hills in a blaze of red and gold just in time for us to grab some spectacular images at the Byron Bay lighthouse. It felt like fate to have such a perfect day… for such a perfect day.

Here is Faith and Heath’s perfect, sunny wedding day.

Faith and her girls got ready at Victoria’s at Ewingsdale. They made their bouquets themselves.

Amanda Palmer Goes Down Under – More Specifically, to Byron Bay

Way back in February I had the honour of photographing Amanda Palmer during her interview with Mel Bampton for Yen Magazine. It was my first super-important shoot of anyone I really idolise, of anyone REALLY famous (this woman has over 50,000 Twitter followers!), and way outside the realm of live music that I’m used to shooting. Lucky for me, it was not so far outside of the realm of portraiture! So I figured, what better way to kick off my brand new blog than with a little AFP?

It was all very casual – I just shot while Amanda and Mel chatted, and I was really happy with how the photos turned out. Someone else must have been too – one of the shots was printed on a full page in last month’s Yen Mag, and another quite large on the page facing. Maybe one day Amanda will see them, and I hope she likes them too.
