Mark and Laura

In the shade of the Pandanus Tree, tucked away in the southern corner of First Bay Coolum, Mark and Laura shared their vows and made their commitment to each other in front of friends and family. A beautiful summers afternoon for a Polynesian wedding down under. Let there be big colour, live music, traditional spoken words, water ceremony with recognition of the ancestors and our dear mother earth. The sun came out right at the perfect time as the eagle circled above. Before long the crew were cruising back to the Sunshine Beach Surf Club in the split window Kombi for the reception. Congratulations to both families, thanks for having me. Enjoy. N

Part 1. The Ceremony 

After what seemed like months of rain and soggy weather, something wonderful happened. The skies cleared for Nick and Emily on this day, the 7th of December 2017. In the moment it seemed like a miracle, the planets aligned and we scored Double Island point on the most perfect summers afternoon. It’s not the easiest place to get to but often the difficult path offers great reward. It seems fitting that Emily and Nick who spend their lives working and playing on the water would have the expanse of the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop for their day. Congratulations to both families it was truly memorable. Wishing you both all the best. N

Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

Inskip…continued. Ivan & Susanne – Kenilworth

What do you get when the Germans and the Australians get together to celebrate a wedding? One heck of a party. More atmosphere than a music festival, more  lighting than a U2 concert and more beer than Oktoberfest. Throw in live music on an amazing property in the Kenilworth hinterland on a perfect Autumn afternoon, classic country roast dinner and a moon rise over the valley. It was a real joy to document this day, good luck in the future, I hope you enjoy the images, thanks for having me. Nige

Ivan & Susanne – Inskip Point Qld.

On this perfect Autumn’s day at Inskip Point two families from opposite sides of the world joined together through marriage. Congratulations to Ivan and Susanne and their families as a new chapter in their story begins. The wedding was in two parts, a midday ceremony at Inskip Point and the after party at the Kenilworth farm two days later. One thing is for sure the beer will be cold, there will be dancing and one heck of an after party. After a month of wet weather, the planets seemed to align for these guys, the weather was perfect. Congratulations on a beautiful wedding, may you both always have sand in your shoes.
