Stacey + Nathan

This is a wedding I have been excited about for a long time.

I met Stacey nearly 18 months ago (very organized bride) and instantly had a connection. Her and her fiance Nathan were set to be my first wedding that I filmed at the venue I myself got married at a few years ago. Ever since my wedding day I looked forward to getting back there to shoot.

The Barn in Wallington was that location. An old rustic barn built on a beautiful property. Rows of gumtrees, festoon lights through all the trees and a dam with a jetty..what more could I need! The ceremony and photo session just snuck in before the rain came down and everyone headed inside. The speeches started a full hour before scheduled (did I mention Stacey was organized!) and we full of laughs and tears.

As you will see from their video Stacey and Nath were made for each other. Together you couldn’t stop them giggling about something and it rubbed off! We had such a great day hanging with these guys and won’t soon forget it.
Thanks again for having us!!

Hannah + Sam

 

The sun and the smiles didn’t stop all day for Hannah and Sam. From their recpetion at St Marys Church to a very windy photo shoot down at St Kilda Pier we couldn’t wipe the smiles from their faces. We then headed to Quat Quatta for reception and a dance session.

Bec + Bo

Couples like Bec and Bo make our job easy, super fun and super easy to work with.

We had a blast with them as they tied the knot in a little ceremony on the Torquay foreshore (decorated by the amazing Pepper Sprout Hire), and loved getting sandy with them in the most epic light imaginable throughout the photo session. Sun flares for days!

They had their reception in the new RACV Resort Torquay

Thanks for having us guys!

Amy + Paul

There is not much I can say about Amy + Paul’s wedding apart from it was hard to edit! It was such a perfect day. The location, the weather, the smiles, everything was perfect.

Set on the grounds of Werribee Park Mansion they tied the knot if front of the Greenhouse on the lawn and on a gorgeous January afternoon. Their first kiss will go down as the best moment of any wedding i have filmed to date, just wait to see it!

From start to finish this was one fun wedding and I thank you guys for inviting me to be a part of it.

Beccy + Shaun

Beccy + Shaun were married on a gorgeous December afternoon at the Qdos Gallery in Lorne. With crowd watching on from the venues natural amphitheater the professed their love, planted a tree and sealed the deal with a kiss. Growing up in Lorne, Shaun took us to some local spots and the light was perfect!

Back at the Gallery the night was full of laughs, drinks and dancing in the courtyard and although i didn’t stay all night i found out that they were the last to go bed..haha.

I had so much fun hanging with theses guys all day, they made me feel at ease from the moment we met and both of their smiles made every shot a winner. Thanks again guys, I had a blast!

Imogen + Lucas

All weddings are fun, but some are awesome. This one was awesome. Imo and Lucas are long time friends of the Love Soldier family so we new we were going to have a good night. What we didn’t expect was a perfect flat light day with amazing humans followed by an epic sunset. Score!

Imo and Lucas had their ceremony at St Peters Anglican church in Ocean Grove and then headed down to the gorgeous Jack Rabbit Winery on the Bellarine Peninusla.

After some standout speeches from father of the bride and the bridesmaids, the heat turned up on the dance floor.

Just another super fun night that makes me love what I do.

Liv + Trev

Being a friend of the Love Soldier family we knew we were going to have a boatload of fun hanging with Liv and Trev on their wedding day and that we did! They were married in an outdoor ceremony in the gardens of the Geelong Club with the ceremony to follow their into the night.

With a few classic styling touches from Nomad Styling the venue and the grounds were an absolutely gorgeous setting for the perfect wedding, even if the weather had other ideas.

Hope you enjoy.

Dale + Luke’s highlight video

You saw the teaser a few weeks back, now its our absolute pleasure to show you Dale + Luke’s full highlight video.

We traveled a few hundred kilometers up the Hume Highway to Dale’s mum’s beautiful property near Wangaratta. What a perfect location, for the perfect boho wedding.

Everything was styled to perfection from the crew at Nomad Styling, from the ceremony next to river on a hand built alter, to the party in a rad tipi that went all night long, it will go down as our favourite to date. And don’t even get me started on the light, we couldn’t have asked for better conditions!

Enjoy!
