Bec & Nathan

A gorgeous wedding at The Springs Peats Ridge – The Springs Wedding Photography – Central Coast Wedding Photography

Bec and Nathan tied the knot on a perfect Autumn day at The Springs. The boys arrived in style at the ceremony… by helicopter! What an impressive way to make an entrance, and all of the guests were impressed! The ceremony was beautiful, with Jeff Hindmarsh helping to make the ceremony lots of fun and very meaningful for the newly weds. The Springs beautiful grounds never disappoint either, and the sunset over the rolling hills created a beautiful backdrop for some photos of the newly weds.

When it was time to enter the reception everyone was ready to have fun. The speeches were filled with heart felt words and laughter, and then everyone packed out the dance floor to dance the night away.

It was such a fantastic day and I was very thankful to be chosen to be a part of it. Thank you to the newly weds for choosing me as your photographer, and I hope that everyone loves this snap shot of the day’s festivities as Nathan and Rebecca became husband and wife.

If you were a guest at the wedding you would have received a card with a password on it so that you can view all of the images from the wedding day. This secure gallery is now live so you can view the photos here. Until then though, enjoy the teaser photos below, which show just how special this wedding day was!

Tanya & Nick

Central Coast Wedding Photography – An Intimate Wedding at Terrigal Haven

Tanya and Nick planned a beautiful wedding with their closest family and friends at Terrigal Haven. With the sun shining down with hardly a cloud in the sky the backdrop of Terrigal beach was the perfect setting to exchange vows.

After the “I do’s” we headed off for some photos exploring a few different spots this area has to offer. The final shots taken right in front of their reception at the Reef Restaurant. Shoes were off and dresses hitched up to enjoy the last of our warm weather on the beach just before they made their entrance into the Reef for their lunch reception.

Thank you both Tanya and Nick for sharing your day with me. Even if Nick doesn’t love photos you wouldn’t be able to tell as he was smiling ear to ear with Tanya on his arm and they both made my job not only easy but fun too!

I hope you love these few images from their day and for those who want to see more their online gallery is now live. Head over to www.vibephotography.net.au to see many more images from their big day. Remember you will need your online gallery password to gain access to these photos.

Danielle and Daniel

Daniel and Daniel’s beautiful summer wedding at Magenta Shores – Central Coast Wedding Photography

Congratulations to Danielle and Daniel on their beautiful wedding! With just about everything at the one awesome location of Magenta Shores Resort, Danielle and Daniel had planned a day to remember!

Carla was with me shooting their wedding video, while I was capturing their day with still photography. I was lucky enough to have already had a photo shoot with Danielle, Daniel and their three girls earlier at the beach. The girls were full of energy and having a great time running around while Danielle and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day. The boys were just around the corner getting ready in a nearby villa. It was a busy morning with lots going on, and before we knew it, it was time to head to the ceremony.

Their ceremony was set by the lake at Magenta Shores Resort. It was a clear and warm Summer’s day and was the perfect setting to exchange their vows.

After the ceremony they jumped in their enormous truck for a trip to the beach for some more photos. This truck was huge, but made for a great backdrop in a couple of the location photos. The beach photo shoot was perfect and really complimented the photos we already had captured from the resort.

We headed back to their reception, and it was party time! A break out “dance off” between the newly weds half way through their bridal waltz had everyone smiling! It was a lot of fun to watch and it looked like they had even more fun during it.

I hope these few photos give you a glimpse into their day. For all of the friends and family who were part of Danielle and Daniel’s amazing wedding day, you can now log in to their online gallery HERE. Don’t forget you will need your password given to you on the night of their wedding.

I hope that you love all of the photos that you see, and that you check back soon to watch their wedding video highlight!

Tom & Tara

Tom & Tara’s amazing wedding at The Forest Chapel and Gracelands – Central Coast Wedding Photography

I first met Tom & Tara at a recent bridal show and soon after I was lucky enough to be a part of their day, and what an amazing day it was!

Tom requested not to have “getting ready” photos but can I meet him at his favourite barber while he and the boys get tidied up. We met at the very cool looking Cutt n Edge Barber Shop in Erina and it felt more like a man cave then a barber shop and actually made for a cool place to capture their morning together.

The whole day just ran like clock work which really made everything easy and fun. The girls all looked great and it wasn’t long before we were getting ready to head to the ceremony.

After around 600 weddings over the last 15 years I sometimes feel like I have been just about everywhere but Tara and Tom had found The Forest Chapel, a beautiful little oasis right in the middle of the Coast. This seemed to be the perfect setting for there day.

With a few photos after the ceremony using the grounds it was time to jump in the cars and head to the beach.While it was part of the Australia day long weekend, we were able to still hide the huge crowds and get some great shots.

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.
