Byron Bay Wedding at The Earth House – Rhys and Eloise – a big tease


Brisbane Wedding Photographer


As a Brisbane Wedding Photographer, I cherish every chance I get to pop down to the beautiful, Byron Bay.

This week is the time to show off a little of the huge day of Eloise and Rhys’s Byron Bay wedding, and at my favourite spot of all down there, The Earth House.

The little Byron hinterland town of Clunes was a tad windy this day, but the sun shone like a gem every time we needed it. The beautiful 100 year old Fig Tree sheltered everyone for the ceremony, and caught their hats when they blew off.

Elo wore her stunning Grace Loves Lace dress perfectly. Rhys and his boys looked very smart indeed in their Blue MJ Bale suits, and not to mention the girls in their random designed, but all still matching, yellow spotted outfits, Awesome!

Elo’s proud dad walked her underneath the fig tree and down the aisle to her Husband to be. Rhys, eagerly waiting for her with a huge smile on his face.

There were kind and loving words by celebrant Roxy Hotton. Wedding rings were flying about. There was an epic KISS! It was all quite short but sweet! Thanks Roxy, quality not quantity right? 🙂

We wandered out and around the very dry, but still stunning, grounds of the Earth House for our “Expression Session”.

We also snuck up the road to the local macadamia orchard for some quiet time and a pic or two among the trees.

Then it was back to let the party begin! Eat Drink catering cooked up a huge storm. The atmosphere was fabulous, everyone was very appreciative indeed. Beautiful food guys, thank you!

The tunes were awesome too, the talented White Tree started rocking the house!

Then the sun decided to turn on a little “Golden charm” for us, so Elo and Rhys and I popped out again.

Then everyone just partied on really.  There were some sparklers, and the Magic Bus was there to take all home to bed.

Thanks so much to everyone who put this epic day on. Thanks for having me along. Love!

Sydney Wedding Photography – Paul and Laura – a few frames


Oh, beautiful old Sydney Town!  I’m so thankful that I get to travel whilst doing what I love.

Last weekend I got back to my old stomping grounds. I remember collecting Razor Clam shells as a kid, in the stunning spit area, whilst my dad was sailing.

I love where I grew up.

Thankfully, these two lovebirds Paul and Laura decided to get hitched just there.

They started their day out on the Northern Beaches, said their vows and sealed the deal with a kiss in a cute church nearby.

After their cute prance down the aisle together, we (the 10 strong bridal party and I) headed down to the Spit for some waterside photos.

Laura you looked just stunning in your detailed Abbey Bridal dress, and Paul of course fit you as the perfect accessory. He’s not a bad bloke to marry either, well done to you both.

The reception at Zest was a lot of fun too, thanks for having me along.

Thank you for the whole day, for my adventure to Sydney, you guys were perfect.

Just a few teasers below for now, more to come very soon though.

It was amazing to get back to the stunning Mavis’s Kitchen for Hannah and Kay’s big day.

The sun was shining, there was so much Love in the air.

After a beautiful ceremony up on the hill, with heartfelt words by Celebrant Roxy Hotten, we then ventured out for some quiet photo time in the beautiful mount warning area surrounding Mavis’s Kitchen.

We all had such a wonderful day.

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – James and Niamh – Teasers


“We had known each other since we were teenagers, but James was always the cute older guy that was just that little bit too old for me at the time. He moved to Melbourne shortly after and then years later we ended up at the same house party where we just couldn’t leave each others side. I was super nervous when it came to leaving and forgot to say goodbye to him, which he says left him no choice but to facebook message me asking me on a date, so I could make it up to him for my irish goodbye.
Within two weeks we were dating, for six years we travelled around the world and visited new countries, and on our 8th Year he popped the question in London.”

What a day to get married, and at the stunning Earth House in Clunes, Byron Bay.

Byron Bay sure turned on it’s charm on this special day, the day Niamh married her sweetheart, James.

They were married to lovely words by celebrant Cara Gallagher, under the huge Fig Tree with views out to the horizon. And what a kiss!

Most of the pics are on the stunning grounds of the Earth House, the rest are up the road at a beautiful macadamia orchard.

Niamh and James, thanks for having Pete and I along on your special day.

It was one day to remember.

  • Bronagh - It wasn’t even my wedding day and I couldn’t have asked for better photographers! You were both so polite, humorous (which helped us hold back the tears) and made us all feel so comfortable on camera. As a bridesmaid to Niamh, I know she wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to capture her special day.

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Munro and Fiona – The Earth House – A few teasers


I’ve been a bit caught for words as what to type down for this one.

So instead of any more “umming and ahhing”, I’ll just say…

Thank you! I am quite humbled that you two lovers, cool cats, soulmates, chose me to take your pics, and at the coolest venue in Byron!

I know it was such a big day for you, so thank you for the trust.

The love was just there, and so easy to snap.

So hard to choose, but here we are.

Just a few to tease you a little!

Much Love.
