It does not surprise me that a couple who met rock climbing would ask us to climb over rocks to get to their ceremony location and take a 4WD only route for more than half an hour. I might be a little dramatic here but I was less scared standing in the middle of Bridge Street in the city for a portrait session in peak hour ;). What was guaranteed was a location like no other and without another soul in sight! It was truly beautiful and only a few close friends were there to be a part of the nuptials. Tamzen and Sam also brought their almost one year old little girl, Violet to celebrate. She was certainly attached to mummy all day long! Tamzen is an incredible floral designer with Alba & Ebon and she created her own arrangement which I fell totally in love with. We spent a small time at their holiday ‘shack’ near Freycinet National Park (will be a holiday home for rent in the coming summer if you are interested) before heading on the 4WD track to Bluestone Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula.  My always amazing sister/celebrant, Marnie Bicknell, officiated the ceremony and it was certainly memorable with the documents being signed on the rocks – no way we were bring table and chairs across those rocks! If you are interested, Tamzen’s goregous dress can be found here – Oasis Oriental Bird Dress. Don’t forget to check out Tamzen’s beautiful floral, photographic and design work at Alba & Ebon. The gorgeous rings are by Hobart Jewellery designer Melany Franklin.

WOW! When my assistant and I arrived at Brooke and Michael’s Wedding location at Echoes Boutique Hotel and Restaurant our jaws kept dropping open. The view was ‘faint-worthy’ and then we met the stylists and what they were doing with the dining room was just spectacular. All the amazing little details to go with a classy gold and black theme. The bridesmaid dresses were stunning and Brooke’s dress was gorgeous with it’s added pearl beading.

Brooke was super relaxed and despite the groom and groomsmen not being there for the start of the ceremony (miscommunication), it all ran perfectly to plan. And yes the boys arrived after I stopped the first bridesmaid walking down the stairs. It was quite funny!

There was one thing for certain on this day, the huge amount of love Michael has for Brooke, he looked at her all day with such admiration. It was really an “Awwwwww” moment all day. A big thank you to my amazing assistant Renee Bowman for taking the incredible shots of the view during the ceremony and the reception. Also thanks for constantly fixing Brooke’s dress, veil and holding all our stuff!

Please enjoy looking at this gorgeous wedding! Let your jaw drop, it’s OK, mine is still like that!

Merribee is a lovely little countryside property just outside of Nowra. It is a blank canvas for you to decorate as you will. Samantha and Luke put in so much effort to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Family and friends also helped. Sam’s sister created all the floral arrangements which was a mammoth effort! Everything looked so magical, like a true fairytale. Their devotion to each other is admirable. I wish them all the very best for their married life together! Thank you for putting on such an amazing day for all of us to enjoy! Thanks to my awesome assistant Renee McGrath for capturing some of these shots.
