After a very warm and dry Summer, we were hit with weeks of rainfall. Kiara and James didn’t let a bit of rain dampen their spirits on their wedding day at Firescreek Winery and Gracelands Forresters Beach Central Coast NSW. Before heading over to Firescreek Winery Central Coast, we met up with Kiara and the girls. We kept the shoot indoors due to the rain however once we arrived at Firescreek Winery Central Coast and met up with James and the boys at Firescreek Winery Central Coast the rain settled to a light sprinkle and the beautiful lush gardens looked absolutely amazing for their Firescreek Winery Central Coast outdoor ceremony. After exchanging vows in front of their loved ones at Firescreek Winery Central Coast, the crew took a few shots at Firescreek Winery Central Coast before we drove off to Forresters Beach lookout. Such a stunning location , and our first time there, so thank you guys for introducing us to this little gem at Forresters Beach. The day closed in quickly, as it does when you’re having fun, and we made our way over to Gracelands Forresters Beach. Another first for us, Gracelands Forresters Beach is a lovely boutique venue where we enjoyed a cocktail style reception at Gracelands Forresters Beach. The guests danced, ate, drank and were merry on this superb day of days at Gracelands Forresters Beach.
Spent a lovely afternoon with the Elphinstone family at our fav location on the Coast ~ Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW.
We recently learned that in the Aboriginal language Bouddi means “heart”. Seems very appropriate that we shoot so many beautiful families and couples up here at Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW. Such an honour for us to capture so many pure and happy moments between family and lovers in this special spot. We surely do live in an amazing part of the world at Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW!
Though we have shot often at The Springs, Peats Ridge we always love going back. Laura and Liam’s wedding at The Springs, Peats Ridge was no exception, in fact it was probably one of favourite shoots there to date. The day began at Ettalong Beach, Central Coast NSW. The Mantra Ettalong Beach, was the perfect coastal setting for the bridal party to get ready for the celebrations that await.
Once we were all read, it was time to make our way over to The Springs, Peats Ridge where the beautiful ceremony of Laura and Liam took place on the greens of The Springs, Peats Ridge. Before long Laura and Liam had officially tied the knot and it was time to let our hair down and take the golf buggies for a spin around the always gorgeous golf course of The Springs, Peats Ridge. As the afternoon turned to night it was time to walk back up to the club house at The Springs, Peats Ridge, a photographers ideal day to have everything in the one spot! We celebrated Liam and Laura’s special day with delicious food and overflowing beverages before the crowd hit the dance floor at The Springs, Peats Ridge to dance the night away.
Always a pleasure to be shooting back at Glenworth Valley, Central Coast, topped off with beautiful, kind couple Tiarna and Tim. We started off the with boys at a property not too far from Glenworth Valley Weddings, where Tim was getting ready for the day ahead with the guys and his parents.
We then head over to catch up with the girls at Glenworth Valley where we did some bridal boudoir and where the girls got dressed and enjoyed some champagne. After Tiarna got into the most stunning gown, it was time to make our way to the ceremony at Glenworth Valley Weddings, where Tim and their guest were all eagerly awaiting her arrival.
After a beautiful ceremony with the lush green backdrop we spent a little bit of time strolling around Glenworth Valley weddings before the always magical Running Of The Horses at Glenworth Valley, when their 200 horses are mustered out of the horse riding yards every afternoon.
When it was time to make our way inside, the guests were ready to get the night’s celebrations underway with the formalities and of course Tiarna tearing up the dance floor, being a professional dancer and all! So much fun!
Yarramalong Wedding Central Coast – We absolutely love our Yarramalong weddings on the Central Coast. Though we love shooting by the beach, there are so many hidden gems on the Central Coast with Yarramalong being one of them! We hadn’t shot at the Hillview before so this shoot was one we were really looking forward too.
We met up with the boys at a house down the road from Hillview in Yarramalong, Central Coast. It really set the tone for the day with the boys of course enjoying their morning but chilled at the same time. We then headed over to the Hillview at Yarramalong, Central Coast to catch up with the girls who were sipping on champagne in their dressing gowns, getting their hair and makeup and just having a good ol time getting ready for the celebrations that lay ahead. Though it was an overcast day, the rain held off and the gorgeous lush greenery offered the vibrance we always seek in our images.
After a beautiful ceremony among the trees with family and friends, the crew went for a bit of a stroll in and around the grounds of the Hillview Yarramalong, Central Coast where there was so much variety in the one spot! Once we got back to the reception, the party was well and truly ready to get started and we enjoyed a night of entertaining formalities, good food and classic wedding dance floor tunes!
Such spoilt photographers we are – gorgeous couple, beautiful scenery, good vibes and lots of fun at Yarramalong, Central Coast.
Always love shooting at Kantara House Central Coast. The quaint little chapel, the big white window panes in the guest room, the lush green surrounds, and the spacious reception room and all down the road from home from Kantara House Central Coast!
We started off the day down at Long Jetty with Brenden and the boys before they travelled in style down to Kantara House Central Coast in a kombi shortly after catching up with Verity and the girls in the guest room at Kantara House Central Coast.
Once ready, looking beautiful but feeling slightly nervous and excited, we took a very short stroll over to the Kantara House Central Coast Chapel where guests and our groom were eagerly waiting.
Verity and Brenden said their I do’s within the company of their nearest and dearest at Kantara House Central Coast chapel. While the guests enjoyed canapes and champagne under the fairy lights at Kantara House Central Coast, the bridal party did not have to venture far for some photos of the newly weds after the ceremony. And as the old saying goes, times flies when you are having fun and it was time to head inside at Kantara House Central Coast to enjoy some delicious food and dance the night away at Kantara House Central Coast!
Chanelle and Brad’s wedding at the Springs Peat Ridge on the Central Coast started off with the girls at an Air BnB in Peats Ridge. With lots of family and children around and with the all the girls getting ready at the same time, it was organised chaos but you could feel the happy vibes and the excitement in the air. Even the roosters wanted in on the good vibes!
Not too long after we headed over to the boys who were already at the Springs Peats Ridge suiting up and greeting guests as they arrived at the Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast. The ceremony, that was held on the golf course of the Springs Peat Ridge Central Coast, was perfect. The warm afternoon sunshine and the love felt from all their guests was just beautiful at the Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast. After exchanging vows, the newly weds and their entourage took the golf buggies out for a spin on the golf course and enjoyed a couple of champagnes as the afternoon came to an end. Before long we all made our way back up to the reception at Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast where everyone went nuts for the photo booth and tunes whilst still celebrating and enjoying the formalities of the evening at Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast.
Thanks again Chanelle and Brad (and Mila) for having us!
We were so looking forward to Lani and Shirley’s wedding. Not only because we absolutely love Gunners Barracks Mosman, Sydney but because it was our very first same sex wedding since the law changed last year! Yay! It was a stunning day on Sydney Harbour, where I met up with Lani & Shirley ready for the celebrations that were yet to unfold. We spent our time enjoying the world class views of Sydney Harbour, capturing the love between these two before heading over to Gunners Barracks Mosman Sydney where Shirley and Lani were greeted by guests from near and wide. After a beautiful ceremony at Gunners Barracks Mosman Sydney, we went for a little walk around the grounds of Gunners Barracks Mosman Sydney before headings back to the reception at Gunners Barracks Mosman Sydney to get the party going. And it wasn’t long before the DJ cranked up the salsa tunes and tequila shots started making the rounds. Lots of sore heads in the morning, but loads of fun memories made too at Gunners Barracks Sydney Mosman.
As much as we love our Central Coast weddings, every now and then its exciting to venture outside the Central Coast NSW to new and beautiful venues such as Gledswood Homestead & Winery. Abegail and Jeric exchanged vows in a lovely church ceremony at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church before their loved ones before heading out to Gledswood Homestead & Winery. With ideal light, we went for a stroll around the grounds of Gledswood Homestead & Winery with the bridal party and enjoyed the lovely afternoon as well as some McDonalds! As day turned to night, we headed to the reception, conveniently located at Gledswood Homestead & Winery to enjoy a night of celebrating the newly weds!
We always love a Hunter Valley Wedding! And Sarah and Barry’s Hunter Valley Wedding was one we were looking forward to since doing there engagement shoot at Avoca Beach last year.

An ideal Hunter Valley on a sunny Winter’s day surrounded by smiling faces and the entire event all in the one location at Calvin Estate Hunter Valley. This was a super fun Hunter Valley wedding with international guests enjoying the happy couple’s day of days at Calvin Estate Hunter Valley. Thanks for having us Barry and Sarah!
