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.
Then it was a quick trip down the road to see Tara and the girls. 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.
The ceremony was somewhere new for me too. 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.
Their reception was help at Gracelands Forresters Beach. This venue has been completely made over and has a very cool & quirky style to it. With a informal and relaxed style to their reception Gracelands felt like the perfect fit.
