Lisa & James’s Secret Garden Byron Bay Wedding was an incredible summer beach wedding fiesta!!!  These two legends and most of their tribe hail from Adelaide, so it was a treat for them all to escape to a Byron Bay destination wedding.  Held on a hot, 35 degree January day (phwar!), the Bay totally turned it on and it wasn’t hard to tell “who wasn’t wearing sunscreen” by the end of the night!!!

Lisa & James are childhood sweethearts, and like most in this category they have already faced many of life’s unexpected turns together, strengthening their bond forever more.  The sweetest of sweet couples, their wedding was vibrant, super relaxed and oh so fun!!

I especially adored the colourful flowers by Alstonville Florist (can you spot the pineapples in the bouquets?), which worked so well with Lisa’s “fuschia pink” lipstick and the “sand” coloured bridesmaid gowns.  I also loved that Lisa & James’s 2 “fur babies” weren’t to be forgotten either, making an appearance (of sorts) at the reception!  A rendition of the “Haka” was a surprise performance by two Maori friends later in the evening, which was so powerful I had tears in my eyes.

The Secret Garden Byron Bay was the perfect reception venue for these guys.   In the heart of Byron it has such a fantastic creative vibe featuring colourful murals by David Bromley throughout (that old bus!!).   The Events Lounge were also brilliant in working their magic to make sure everything ran without a hitch from start to finish.

Awesome work team (full supplier credits below) and congratulations again Mr & Mrs Day on your spectacular (..ahhhum..) day!!!  :-))

Looking back on the images from Amy & Pete’s Victoria’s at Ewingsdale Byron Bay Wedding , I’m struck by the emotion clearly evident on their faces throughout the day.  The early nerves and excitement leading up to the ceremony, Pete’s tears as Amy walked down the aisle.  Then the pure unabated happiness, relief and joy in finally being able to call each other “husband and wife”.  No surprise they were so happy, when you find out the “back story”.   Pete has done not one but 2 tours of Iraq while Amy waited patiently for his return.  Thankfully she had their gorgeous pug “Sunny” to keep her company!!

Amy & Pete’s number one wish was for their wedding day to be super SUPER chilled.  With a moderate number of guests, no bridal party and a very quick ceremony, the emphasis was on soaking up the stunning grounds of Victoria’s at Ewingsdale Byron Bay while enjoying scrummy food and the company of their closest family & friends.  Let me tell you, they absolutely nailed it.  We went off site for a couple of photos, again with the emphasis on candid, natural shots.  Both Amy & Pete were surprised to comment later how much they appreciated a little “time out” for the two of them to soak up their new titles of “Mr & Mrs”.  But there was plenty of time to party on with lots of moves on the d-floor!!

What a gorgeous day to be a part of.  Congratulations once again Amy & Pete on your stunning celebration of love!!

There was so much to love about Lucie & Rich’s Beach Byron Bay wedding!  Lucie & Rich are from the UK and chose Byron Bay for their destination wedding, having fallen in love with the bay on previous trips.  The weather totally turned it on with one of the most spectacular winter days you could ever experience.  I’ll let the photos do the talking, but massive high fives to everyone involved (credits below) and congratulations again to Lucie & Rich!!

Liz & Ben’s Belle Helena wedding was simply an epic day.  Liz chose a “tropical” theme which resonated throughout all aspects – the invitations, the flowers, the ceremony location and surrounding grounds of Belle Helena, just to name a few.  We even managed to sneak off for sunset photos at the beach in Coast 58’s super-cute kombi.  I have no idea how Liz & Ben managed to find the time to learn a choreographed routine for their first dance, but they did, and it was spectacular!!

Congratulations once again to Liz & Ben, your wedding was mad and completely magic  :-)

When I first met Sarah & David to chat about their Osteria Casuarina wedding, I knew their day was going to be a hoot!!  Such a warm and happy couple, with a wicked sense of humour to boot!  While they live at the Gold Coast Sarah & Dave prefer cooler climes, and therefore chose a “winter woodlands” theme.  Not interested in using the beach nearby for photos, I was excited to discover the most perfect location nearby complete with tall pine trees to give that “alpine vibe” they envisaged.  Special credit must be given to the magnificent arbour and Sarah’s bouquet, superbly crafted by Pollen Flowers.   Full credits below, fantastic work team! x Ann-Louise
