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 at Bluestone Bay. We had to take a 4WD only route for more than half an hour off the main road just to get there – it was certainly an adventure! And the location was absolutely spectacular – blue skies, sparking water and peace and quiet.
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 (which 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 able to bring a table and chairs across those rocks!
If you are interested, Tamzen’s gorgeous 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.
