Alyce and Brendan

Raffertys Resort Wedding Photography – the perfect spot for a wedding!

It was sooooooo fantastic to be a part of Alyce and Brendan’s special day at Raffertys Resort. They had the perfect weather, overlooking the lake as they exchanged vows. We then headed in to Catherine Hill Bay for some location photos and found the perfect field for some romantic shots of the newly weds. Then it was back to the reception at Raffertys Resort. There was lots of fun to be had here, and a few tear jerkers for the speeches also. Everyone enjoyed a dance to finish off the night, and all round it was a perfect wedding for two great people!

I’m excited to let you know that their wedding photos can now be viewed at their secure online gallery here. You will need the password which was given out on the night of the reception to access the gallery. We do hope that you love all of the photos, and once again, a huge big congratulations to the newly weds Alyce and Brendan!

Jasmine and Paul

A gorgeous Magenta Shores wedding – Central Coast Wedding Photography

Jasmine and Paul tied the knot at the start of December at the always gorgeous Magenta Shores Resort. While there was a little rain on the day, this didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits… you literally couldn’t wipe the smiles of their faces. While we did have to dodge the rain for the location shoot (and umbrellas came up for a little bit during the ceremony), it made me think of some alternate photos, and I captured some lovely indoor shots at Magenta. Rain on a wedding day is good luck, and not something to worry about, so it was so great to see Jasmine and Paul embrace everything on their day and just have the best wedding day ever!

I loved being a part of Paul and Jasmine’s wedding day, and am excited to let everyone know that their wedding photos can now be viewed in their secure online gallery here. I hope that you all love them!!!

Ange & Matt

Ange & Matt are Married – Magenta Shores

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph Ange and Matt’s wedding at Magenta Shores just a few weeks back. It was great to see some familiar faces at their wedding too with Gareth and Jodie both playing roles as MC and Matron of Honour. I was also part of Gareth and Jodie’s wedding back in 2013.

In the lead up to Ange and Matt’s big day we caught up for a pre wedding photo shoot at the beach and after this shoot I knew it was going to be a great wedding. The boys were a lot of fun and they really made my job easy and the girls all looked beautiful. With Magenta Shores as the backdrop it was the perfect setting.

After the photo shoot it was back to the reception where the party began and it was great to see everyone up on the dance floor having a great time.

Below are just a handful of images from their day, if you attended the wedding you can now use your online gallery password to log in HERE and see many more images from the day.

Thank you again to Ange and Matt for inviting me to share your day. I hope you love these images as much as we do!

Natalie & Jamie

Central Coast – Magenta Shores Wedding Photography

Natalie and Jamie are married! They celebrated their big day at Pullman Magenta Shores on the Central Coast.

What a day it was, The wind was crazy strong and a little cool but that didn’t stop Natalie and Jamie from having the time of their lives. There are some things you can’t control at a wedding and the weather is definitely one of those things, but the way they handled it just made my job so easy. We found as many different areas to use to both stay out of the wind and of course get some pretty cool shots.

Back at the reception, and after a fun entrance it was pretty much straight into party mode for everyone. Funny speeches and a vibrant crown made for a fantastic atmosphere during the night.

Below are just a few images from the day but follow this link www.vibephotography.net.au to lead you to Jamie and Natalie’s online gallery. Here you will find many more images from the day. Remember to access the online gallery you will need the password given to you on the night.

Hope you love this preview from their day!

Somersby Gardens

Somersby Gardens a hidden treasure.

Somersby Gardens Estate really is a hidden treasure. I recently met Amy and Andrew at a bridal fair, and I am fortunate to now be a part of their country styled wedding. For their engagement photo shoot they wanted a country setting and Somersby Gardens Estate was the perfect backdrop for their photos.

The crazy thing is, even though I have heard of this venue, in the 14 years I have been a full time wedding photographer, I have never been there before. I met Brenda from Somersby Garden at another recent bridal fair and before I knew it I was scouting out their gardens for Amy and Andrews photo shoot.

Brenda took the time to show me around the property. This truly is an all in one wedding venue. With a large house to get ready in, multiple areas where a ceremony can be held, even a wet weather option. It has an amazing reception area and there are endless photo opportunities around the property.

After seeing everything there was to offer on the property, I couldn’t wait to meet up with Amy and Andrew for their photo shoot. During their shoot we really only used a fraction of what is available. There were so many other areas I could have used, and I think I could spend many hours shooting around the area.

If you are looking for a wedding venue which feels like you could be in the middle of nowhere but you are still on the Central Coast, a venue with both gardens, a real country feel and bordering a National park facing awesome sunset opportunities, then Somersby Gardens Estate is a must see.

While our paths have not crossed yet for a wedding I really cant wait for my first wedding at the Estate!

For more information on Somersby Gardens please visit http://somersbygardens.com.au/

If you’re looking for a venue, I’m sure you will love it just as much as I did. It’s a must see!! And, if you are still looking for a photographer for your wedding day, then I think I can recommend some one to cover that too… :)

Below are just a few images that I captured during Amy and Andrew’s engagement photos shoot on site. I hope that you love them!

Lauren and Peter

Rafferty’s Resort Wedding Photography

Lauren and Peter are married! What a wedding it was, with wind, rain and a glowing and always happy bride and groom.

I quickly got the feeling as the rain was coming down during the morning preparations that no matter what the weather was going to do, Lauren and Peter were going to have an amazing day. It was great to see the smiles and laughter  regardless of the weather.

Rafferty’s Resort offered the perfect location for their day and with a relaxed and fun bridal party it made the photo shoot lots of fun for me (even if I did get a little wet in the process) and I just love how everything turned out.

After a quick trip out in four very cool Holden Monaro’s we were back at Rafferty’s for the reception for good food and to celebrate a beautiful day.

Hope you love these images. To see even more images from their day head over to their online gallery HERE. Remember to view the photos in the gallery you will need the password given out at the reception. For everyone else here is a small sample of Lauren and Peter’s Rafferty’s Resort wedding.

Nat and Andy

Central Coast Wedding Video

I’m so excited to show off Andy and Nat’s highlight wedding video. Their full length feature is over an hour, so this highlight gives you a taste of how wonderful their day was!

They exchanged vows at South Kincumber Catholic Church, and then had some photos along the Coast before heading to their reception at Kooindah Waters.

Thank you again for letting us capture it and we hope that everyone loves this highlight and can see the love that they have for one another and their family and friends.

 

Nat & Andy

Natalie and Andrew are married! Holy Cross Kincumber and Kooindah Waters Wedding Photography

Nat and Andy, our latest happily married couple, had an amazing wedding day! Their ceremony was held at the always stunning Holy Cross Church in south Kincumber. You could not wipe the smile off Natalie’s face as she came down the aisle, and Andrew’s face was just smitten. The entire day was more of the same, with beaming smiles and laughter all round!

For our photo shoot we headed over to the beach first, then back to Kooindah Waters for the reception. As the sun set and it we started to loose the light, it became the perfect time to step outside for one or two more shots. The reception continued with more laughter and fun as everyone hit the dance floor.

We now have their online gallery up and live and you can view more photos HERE. Remember to have your password ready to be able to access the online gallery. For everyone else we have a small sneak peek right here. Hope you love! Check back in a week or two and we will also have a little video to show of their perfect wedding day too!

It’s a new year!

Happy new year!

As another year goes by we are excited to start 2017 with some exciting changes and times ahead. Heading into our 14th year as VIBE Photography we feel blessed to be able to do what we love, and share so many moments with our couples on their special day.

We often run into couples out and about from some recent and not so recent weddings and it’s always great to see them as their lives change and grow, sometimes with new additions to the family or stories of adventures they have had.

For 2017 we have a bunch of awesome weddings lined up and we are also excited to meet lots of newly engaged couples around this time of year. There is no question New Years and Valentine’s Day (which is just around the corner) is when a lot of people “pop the question”. For us this is great, as we get to meet lots of newly engaged couples planning their wedding.

So if you have just found yourself with a ring on your finger and are getting excited about planning your day then get in quick and make a time to have a chat with us to see how we can help you on your day.

To all of our previous couples, thank you again for your support and we will have a little surprise offer coming your way in a few weeks, so keep an eye on a email from us soon. We love to reward our couples and this is possibly the best reward we have ever offered, more to come soon. ;)

There will be a few exciting changes in the coming weeks but I’ll post more as things develop.

Here are a few images to look back on from some of our 2016 weddings.
