Bilpin Resort Wedding Hayley and Rob

Bilpin Resort Wedding Hayley and Rob is the home of the famous Secret Cirle, a beautiful pine tree forest in the Hawkesbury NSW.

The rain was bellowing down and the mist rolling in and it made for the most magical day.

I was in awe of the little droplets of rain on leaves as I walked by, the hum of laughter from the guests and the sound of the rain pounding the ground.

Rob arrived with his groomsmen with the biggest smile, greeting all the guests ever so nervously!

Carly the celebrant got the ceremony underway efficiently after creating makeshift shelter for her PA! dedication right!! (you should totally hire her!!)

Hayley and her bridesmaids braved the pouring rain and gracefully walked the beautiful long aisle.

The ceremony was extra special with Rob offically adopting little Ayla she even took his surname, what a beautiful moment to witness! I mean tears right here!

The rain stoped just as we began portraits! I had to work double time to ensure we got it done before the heavens opened up again! We had so much fun making beatiful memories! so many laughs.

The reception was in the beautiful marquee, heartfelt speeches, reducing many to tears. Hayley and Rob wowed with their first dance and both her and Ayla danced with their Dad’s! I mean can I get an awweeee!

I wrapped up my evening with some dancing and left the couple partying the night away!

1908 Wedding Zoe and Jayson

1908 Wedding Zoe and Jayson. From the moment I met these wonderful humans I knew I adored the. Everything they wanted for their wedding day is exactly what I want for my clients. They wanted small and intimate, chilled, fun and simple. Their wedding dream sounded a dream! and it was. I found myself in paradise as Salmon Haull reserve overlooking the crystal blue ocean in Cronulla as guests started to trickle down the path I new it was going to be perfect. Jason came down the path looking so nervous, he wanted it to be perfect for Zoe.

Zoe’s best friend Brandon walked her down the aisle, he held her tight and was her strenght in a time she would want her Mum by her side.

Jayson’s cheeky smile grew the closer Zoe came, they said their I do’s infront of their family and friends.

Their guests were lost in the moment with them and were so delighted for squishy cuddles and photos after the ceremony.

After all the hugs we took an adventure for photos, we had an absolute blast laughinh so hard we could barely breathe.. they are definitely the kinds of memories I want fro them.

We headed over to their reception at 1908 Cronulla and what a venue! guests were able to mingle, drink, laugh and get crazy! what I loved most was the room was filled with amazing tunes with a constant hum of laughter and joy.

I finished off my night capturing the speeches and a little dancing. I may of been having a little dance myself. it’s how I get the good shots!

Zoe and Jayson thank you for inviting me to capture your day, I love you both dearly and it was my honour. x

Settlers Mulgoa Taylor and Jayden

Settlers Mulgoa Wedding Taylor and Jayden. Taylor and Jayden were high school sweethearts and after 13 beautiful years, 1 baby and 1 house later they planned a wedding on the spur of the moment while enjoying their breakfast one day at the beautiful Settlers Mulgoa. Because they loved the venue so much they looked at one another and said, “let’s book a wedding”.

And so they did! They planned a wedding in 6 months! They had a small intimate wedding at the stunning Settlers Mulgoa. They were married by their Pastor from their family church.

Jayden was reduced to tears when his little boy and soon to be wife walked down the aisle.

Everywhere I looked; there was that warm connected feeling. It was truly one of the most memorable weddings of my career. I cried behind my camera and I’m not sorry!

I’m so honoured that these humans let me into their life. Taylor even asked me at the end of the night would I be her friend? Omg yass! I love that she felt so comfortable with me to want me to be her friend!

We captured some magical group shots. Their bridal a party were amazing to work with. We had an absolute blast! Her bridesmaid Liz loved it so much she wrote on my facebook wall the next day! Thanks Liz xx

The couple portraits with golden hour in the background setting over the Blue Mountains was absolutely stunning.

The reception was a grazing board style where you could pick what you loved, the food was stunning, styling absolutey gorgeous with natives running the entire length of the tables. The speeches definitely my highlight! They finished of with their first dance and garter/bouquet toss.

Taylors facebook review may have made my eyes leak a lot!

“Words can’t describe how happy we are to have chosen Lauren to capture the moments of our big day. She has an incredible ability to make everyone feel so comfortable, and we had so much fun with the entire process that we felt like the wedding would have been incomplete without her presence. Thanks to Lauren, we have the most beautiful photos from our day and we will absolutely never stop telling everyone how amazing she truly is. Such a talented, genuine human being who we consider ourselves lucky to have crossed paths with”.

After the ceremony we enjoyed a big group photo. This was followed by beautiful portraits of the couple and they bridal a party in the grounds of Appin House with the Golden Sun kissing their skin.

The most magical moments were captured for this couple.

The Reception was a massive party with a father and daughter dance  that touched everyone’s heart and Tegan and Gary’s first dance as Husband and wife, which had left the room with not a dry eye in sight.

The day was finished off with some stunning night shots out in the gazebo in the Appin house garden. What a truly magical day for these stunning humans. I’m so glad I was able to capture this day for them. I hope that their day was their dream come tru. They now have magical memories to cherish forever.
