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, sparkling 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.
