Soph and Andy’s North Stradbroke Island Wedding

We always love it when people that we know ask us to shoot their wedding, but when Soph and Andy asked us what date was good for us we were especially pleased.

These guys are alot of fun and we just knew that their wedding and the weeks (months) leading up to it would be bordering on outrageous.

And we were right.

From the surprise engagement leading into the surprise overseas birthday holiday

to Sophies surprise ten girl, five day hens extravaganza in Cairns (of which I attended) to Andys Gold Coast Boys weekend (of which Stu is pleased to say he got out of alive… only just)

to the second hens and stag parties to the leadup with all of the english friends and relatives arriving the actual wedding the the grand finale of what seemed like a never ending party since the beautiful art deco engagement ring was slipped on Sophies finger (I am sure everyones liver will agree)

And what a lovely wedding it was… So many amazing people who went in strangers and came out firm friends and so many amazing finishing touches

Sophies mum hand made her dress, the vast array of bridal party all lended their talents and played a part and the whole thing was pulled together beautifully (despite the rain)

The reception went well into the night and I left as the bride and groom were doing jager shots on the bar… I would have expected nothing less.

Amber and Jay get married

We love it when someone special likes our work so much that they ask us to travel to shoot their wedding.

So how excited were we when gorgeous Amber and her handsome man Jay asked us to come to Byron Bay…eeeeekkkk!

Byron is awesome. And practically made for wedding photographers. Oh we were in heaven.

Nestled amongst the rolling fields with a panoramic view of a distant ocean is the Fig Tree 

Oh Wow, what a place. Beautiful. So many little spots for photos, it was great.

Amber is a local Straddie girl and I have known her for years but was lucky enough to become friends with her when we were the photographers for her sister Emeralds wedding  – check it out here

(Emerald, Pattie their son Pax and baby on the way also live next door to us!)

It was a real family affair with brother Lincoln as MC, Emerald as bridesmaid and mum and dad closely involved.

My sister Emma was on the ladies makeup and styling was DKS Weddings 

It was touch and go with the rain in the morning but Mother Nature came though and gave us some of her best work in the afternoon.

It really was a very fun day, leading into a fantastic night… and do these guys know how to party!
