BESPOKE COUNTRY COUTURE WEDDING AT GOONOO GOONOO STATION, TAMWORTH NSW

Under the shade of a beautiful tree, beneath a hand-crafted native arbour, Megan and Andy were the picture of style at their recent wedding at Goonoo Goonoo Station in Tamworth NSW.

The bride was radiant, dressed by Anna Campbell who also handcrafted many of the fine art details, while the bridesmaids popped in the tastefully chosen Camilla dresses.

Beautiful native blooms complimented the spark of personality that was provided by the gorgeous gowns of the bridesmaids. While Megan may have been nervous about the splash of cheeky colour, the bride’s sister persuaded her to add a signature touch and incorporate her bright & beautiful personality through these pieces.

Friends and family from across the globe travelled to celebrate this beautiful day in the prestigious grounds of Goonoo Goonoo station.

Tropical Feminine and Natural Wedding Vibes in Hawaii

Our vision was to create an elegant, romantic tropical Hawaiian wedding vibe without the traditional too bright and harsh colours and pineapples. The floral arrangement and table scape were combined with a few pops of bright tropical foliage softened by a natural colour palette. Touches of coral and seas element were used to enhance that costal and tropical vibe.  Ka La’i Aloha Estate reflected the Hawaiian elegant beach bride charm perfectly.

Natural Earthy Wedding Tones - Destination Wedding Hawaii

You may have guessed by now that I am very fond of tropical island destination weddings and elopements.  The thought of having the most intimate wedding amongst your closest 10-30 friends and family.  The people that truly matter in your life, the ones who have been there and will continue to be there.  To me these are the people you should be sharing this moments with. 

Another fact you may know about me is that I am obsessed with soft natural colour palettes and tones.  This stunning ethereal bridal shoot on the Hawaii island of Oahu creates the perfect vision for your dream destination or elopement wedding.

Destination Pre-Wedding - Sydney Australia

Why you SHOULD book a pre-wedding photo session.

Pre-Wedding photo sessions are my absolute favourite.  The time you get to spend with your clients in a relaxed, easy and no rush environment, being able to create romantic images and deliver a gallery of the most beautiful and intimate wedding photos, why would you not!  

This was an incredible day spent with Jo and Dylan around the beautiful Sydney Opera House and The Royal Botanic Gardens.  Jo flew in from Singapore the week of to meet up with her fiancé Dylan in Sydney so we could capture their love before their big wedding day in January next year, which will be held in their home country of Singapore amongst family and friends.
