The Stables of Somersby – Wedding of Kim and Steve

stables of somersby1

 

First blog for 2019! We have been busting to blog Kim and Steve’s The Stables of Somersby wedding. Our first time shooting here at The Stables of Somersby and omg, what a venue!!
We started off our day at a homely Terrigal Air Bnb sipping scotch whisky and suiting up in bow ties and suspenders shortly before heading over to catch up with the girls at the The Stables of Somersby. The girls were busy getting ready at The Stables of Somersby in the very rustlcly sheik barn accommodation conveniently located upstairs to where the entire day’s celebrations were to be held. After a few champagnes and tears from mum and dad (and the girls) we were ready to head down stairs at The Stables of Somersby to where Steve and the guests eagerly await.
A beautiful ceremony led by Steve and Kim’s good friend at The Stables of Somersby was enjoyed by family and close friends before they head off for canapés, and the bridal party set off by foot for some photos at The Stables of Somersby.
As the afternoon came to an end and the rain, that held off all day, arrived it was time to head inside to start the party at The Stables of Somersby! A night of dancing, over flowing mismatched glasses and Mexican food truck food was enjoyed well into the night. Lots of sore heads to be expected the morning after… but definitely worth it!

Kangy Gardens Wedding – Hannah & Sam

kangy angy wedding1

We were very excited to be shooting at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast for Hannah and Sam’s wedding as it was our first time shooting at this stunning location. Perfectly set up for a wedding, Kangy Gardens offers lush gardens, rustic styling, an undercover ceremony venue, gorgeous reception marquee and so many little hidden gems for guests and the bridal party to enjoy champagne and to take beautiful photography as well, of course! We usually start our day with the boys, however we started with the girls first at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW getting ready for the celebrations that await before heading over to Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW to catch up with the boys shortly before the ceremony was to commence at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW. A lovely ceremony surrounded by close friends and family was enjoyed by all before guests enjoyed canapés and champagne in the gardens whilst we head off for some bridal party photos. Such a gorgeous location meant we did not have to venture offsite for the shoot and spent the sunny afternoon at Kangy Gardens, before kicking off the party in the beautiful wedding marquee. Guests partied the night away to the live band and were also treated to a song by the bride herself!

It was an honour and pleasure to shoot fellow photographer and friend, Charms and her husband, Mark recently at Bouddi National Park Central Coast NSW. Glowing and expecting their first child very very soon it was so much fun catching up with this couple who we haven’t seen in ages and it was with such enjoyment that we got to catch up before their world is turned upside down, in a good way of course! We started our shoot at one of our favourite beaches on the Central Coast NSW, Putty Beach, before talking a walk up to breath taking views in Bouddi National Park Central Coast NSW and then making our way back down to Putty Beach, Central Coast, NSW and making the most of the gorgeous afternoon with a few water shots. Thanks again Charms and Mark and all the best with the birth and we can not wait to see some photos of your little mini soon!

Can not believe that is has been almost a year since we shot Jessica and Blake’s gorgeous Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley Wedding. This has got to be one of our favourite wedding venues in the Hunter Valley, Wandin Valley Estate. Jess and Blake were married with close friends and family by their side at Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley. It goes without saying that Hunter Valley weddings are just beautiful and it was no surprise our lovely couple chose such a stunning location for their wedding day at Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley. After their wedding ceremony amongst the wine barrels, we walked in and around Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley and took some fun photos with their bridal party before enjoying the evening at the famous cricketers pavilion located near the entrance of Wandin Valley Estate, Hunter Valley.

Peppers Creek Hunter Valley Wedding of Chere & Tim

peppers creek hunter valley wedding_001

We first met Chere and Tim in February 2016 when this lovely young couple just got engaged and we were fortunate enough to spent a gorgeous afternoon at Norah Head, Central Coast NSW for their engagement photos. (Can be viewed here: https://www.coastweddingphotography.com.au/norah-head-weddings-chere-and-tims-engagement-photos/)  Not much had changed in the two years since this shoot, Tim and Chere still clearly adored each other and after two years of planning their Peppers Creek Hunter Valley, NSW wedding day had arrived! It was a warm and bright day at the Hunter Valley, NSW where we caught up with Tim and his boys at Peppers Creek Hunter Valley, NSW who seemed pretty relaxed and were just enjoying their morning at Peppers Creek Hunter Valley NSW. We then headed over to the girls who were getting ready for the day ahead, exchanging gifts and where Chere spent some quiet quality time with her parents and her bridal party. The ceremony time quickly came round so we all made our way down to the Peppers Creek Hunter Valley NSW chapel where an emotional groom met his bride and they exchanged vows in front of their most loved ones. One of the perks of shooting in such a stunning location is that we don’t have to venture far to find picturesque backdrops, Peppers Creek Hunter Valley NSW provided it all and this very large bridal party spent the afternoon among great company and gorgeous vineyards before heading back to the reception at the Peppers Creek Hunter Valley NSW Barrel Room to enjoy some good food, good wine and good company…. and dancing of course!

Abbey and Nathan celebrated their wedding day on a gorgeous Summer’s day at Mereweather, Newcastle NSW. This perfectly warm day started at the Crown Plaza Newcastle, Merewether Newcastle NSW where both the girls and boys were getting ready for the day. We floated between both parties at the Crown Plaza Newcastle, Merewether Newcastle NSW who were excited yet relaxed for the ceremony and celebrations ahead at Merewether Newcastle NSW.

With a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in the gardens of Crown Plaza Newcastle, Merewether Newcastle NSW nestled behind the hotel, Abbey and Nathan exchanged vows in front of their loved ones before heading out to Hickson Street Lookout, Merewether Newcastle NSW and Merewether Beach, Merewether Newcastle NSW for some fun during the bridal party shoot.
Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun and so it wasn’t long before we headed up to the Merewether Surfhouse Merewether Newcastle NSW for dinner and drinks and to continue the celebrations into the night at Merewether Newcastle NSW. We did get a chance to sneak of the Merewether Surfhouse, Merewether Newcastle NSW out for some night shots though!

The Sebel Kirkton Park hunter Valley Wedding of Carly and Matt

The Sebel Kirkton Park hunter Valley_001

We first met Carly and Matt in 2011 when we shot Carly’s best friend’s wedding when we were still living in Cairns. We were so excited that we were able to cross paths with these beautiful people again now that we are located down on the Central Coast, NSW. Carly and Matt held their gorgeous nuptials at The Sebel Kirton Park Hunter Valley.

Carly looked stunning in her elegant Winter dress and though Carly and Matt married in the middle of Winter, The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley shone with its magnificent backdrop and beautiful sunlight. With both Carly and Matt’s brothers by their side, the couple exchanged vows in front of their dearest and there was not a dry eye in the house as these two beautiful souls became husband and wife at The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley.

The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley is truly an amazing location and we certainly hope we have the opportunity to shoot there again. Thank you again Carly and Matt for having us their to capture all the fun!
