Laura and Haydn knew each other back from school. Once they finished school, they crossed paths regularly at after work drinks and house parties.
Slowly, their friendship blossomed into Love.
Laura and Haydn chose the stylish Fig Tree Restaurant for their location. After a roller-coaster ride of a morning, Ben Carlyle, their calm and collected celebrant, kept the spirits high as the rain sprinkled down upon everyone.
Heart felt vows were spoken. There were tears all around. It was all then sealed with one hell of a kiss!. And Laura and Haydn were married. These two were meant to be one.
We saw the sun was about to come out so we drove out to a gorgeous little spot up on a big hill in nearby Coorabell. This was one epic photo session, the mist sitting in the valleys, below an intense golden sunset.
Haydn, you were looking very stylish, in your Tom James royal blue suit, no doubt. It was noticeable that you were barely able to take your eyes off your gorgeous new wife the whole time!
Thank you to you both, for such a great day, for inviting us to come along on your adventure.
Our day then turned into night and everyone enjoyed lots of beautiful food and wine. It continued long into the night, with dancing to tunes, by musician Oscar Richardson.
I would also like to send big thanks to my partners there taking amazing pics with me on the day. To the lovely Kate Holmes, and to my awesome sister Hannah, thank you for your talent and support.
Also, hats off to the team at Byron Bay Weddings for putting on such an amazing event.
There wiil be more to come of this stunning day very soon, but for now, we hope you enjoy these.
The Fig Tree Restaurant is one fabulous Byron Bay venue, if you have an upcoming wedding. There is also a great feature article that we recently wrote on some other top Byron Bay wedding venues HERE. It’s worth a peep, no doubt.
It was “LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” for these two when they met.
Amy was working with explosives, and Mick was a driller.
Mick couldn’t talk to Amy for a whole year, he was just too shy, despite Amy’s efforts! He would walk away from her!
They slowly saw how much they were alike, that they adored each others qualities, and eventually became good buds.
Mick called Amy “the bomb chick!”
When Mick was forced to move to the other side of the country for work, it got to them both, they couldn’t live without each other.
Amy chased him all the way to W.A.
The rest is history. The epic backyard party in the super friendly country town of Dubbo NSW was a party I will not forget.
My whole trip and my experience with these wonderful bunch of people, is something I am very thankful for.
Amy and Mick, it’s still explosive, as much as I can see love can be.
…and as for the drilling…
Hope these few keep you keen for a while until more come soon.
Thank you for letting me be a part of such a memorable day, and weekend.
…Also, everyone keep an eye out for dinosaurs around here, they may pop up at any time!

Oh where to begin!
Whilst I’m chipping away editing Gaurav and Minal’s epic Sydney Indian Hindu wedding, that for me spanned over 8 days, with several thousand photos taken, I thought I would pop up one to show off.
This one pretty much came straight out of the camera like this. I’m really loving my new Fujifilm X-T2’s, they are serious weapons.
Many more to come soon.
Hope you like this one as much as I do.
Big thanks to my bestie Rachael Muller for her flashy help on this too, you’re the best Rach!
