Terrigal is absolutely breathtaking this time of the year, add the scenery of Terrigal beach with the quaint cottage-like look and feel of Maccoa The Clan in Terrigal, and you get the perfect backdrop for us wedding photographers, an undisclosed wedding not too far from the big smoke of Sydney and at one of Central Coasts best known holiday destinations. The wedding of Ari and Luke at Maccoa The Clan Terrigal did not disappoint that’s for sure. Ari and Luke first contacted us many moons back before the world was in lockdown ‘ah yes the dreaded C word’, a year passed and we were thrilled to finally photograph their fun-filled wedding as restrictions eased and the dance floor opened up!
The wedding day started with us meeting the nervous groom at one of the rooms at Maccoa The Clan Terrigal, rehearsing his perfectly written speech on his laptop while his groomsmen approached. Such a fun witty bunch, big into their gaming and Dungeons and Dragons, always a treat as we could relate! Ari got ready not too far away at a private spot still part of Maccoa The Clan in Terrigal. Just like the boys, Ari’s entourage was ready to roll out and ready to party, much to celebrate about before they finally walked down the aisle with Terrigal Beach as their backdrop, just behind Maccoa The Clan.
After a beautiful, ‘laughter filled’ wedding ceremony, we quickly went away from Maccoa The Clan Terrigal and headed straight to the Skillion at Terrigal Haven, going over the rocks and boulders. The afternoon sun shining at Terrigal along with a perfect 24 degrees golden hour sunset light, provided just the perfect atmosphere for their wedding bridal pictorial photos. Along with their fun personalities, we were able to get a mix of serious and character filled wedding photos we know and love.
After spending some time around Terrigal Haven and the Skillion rocks, we headed back towards Maccoa The Clan Terrigal where their family and friends were eagerly awaiting for their formal introduction as husband and wife to kick off the night of speeches and dancing. Thanks to the great work of Everlong Weddings who styled the room and of course Maccoa The Clan Terrigal for providing not just an amazing location but exceptional service, Ari and Luke’s wedding reception was just perfect. After a few speeches and many beers and wines later, they had their first dance as husband and wife. But the party was just beginning and everyone enjoyed the night dancing away at Maccoa The Clan Terrigal.
Thank you for having the Coast Wedding Photography team capture your very special day. We wish you both all the best in this life!
