Chuffed to be featured on Wedding Photography Select today – showing both a wedding I shot in the south of France a few months ago and also an interview on the life of a wedding photographer!
Nestled in the Camargue region of southern france, lies an idyllic 500 year old farmhouse run by the quintessential Frenchman Jean Claude. When Erin and James got engaged, they immediately thought of Le Mas de Barbut and knew it would make an enchanting wedding venue. Situated just outside Aigues Mortes, this place packs a punch when it comes to character and charm. Rustic and classically French, the vine covered walls, flowers, artefacts found in the natural grounds, ginger moggies, and stunning gardens added to this heavenly spot. Erin and James enjoyed their day with their six month old daughter Niamh and 50 other guests. A beautiful ceremony was followed by a naming ceremony for Niamh before drinks and canopies were served in the courtyard. The nearby beach and countryside provided a great backdrop to some shots before heading back for an alfresco dinner. The attention to detail on the dinner tables was exquisite, and following the amazing French food and wines, Erin and James did their first dance with little Niamh before old movies were played against a moonlit night sky – a perfectly romantic day for a gorgeous couple. Congratulations to both Erin and James! x
You couldn’t get a more idyllic wedding location than the Caribbean and I was over the moon to be photographing Nicki and Andy’s wedding in Barbados. Nicki’s parents married here so it seemed fitting that 40 years later she chose to marry on the same island. It’s testament to their popularity that over 50 friends and family made the trip out to Barbados and the week was full of laughter, fun and, of course, rum punch. Congratulations Nicki and Andy, it was a privilege to be part of your day! x
To have the opportunity to photograph a destination wedding in Sydney was a pretty special way to finish off a great summer of weddings. I met Nicki and Tris 18 months ago travelling in Rwanda and was over the moon when they asked me to be their wedding photographer. This is certainly the furthest I will ever travel for a destination wedding so it was a great privilege to be part of their day. In true Aussie style everything about this day was fun and relaxed, including a few hours with just the bridal party and an esky full of beer and champagne! The early Spring weather was perfect and seeing sunset by the Opera House and Harbour Bridge was beautiful. Congratulations Nicki and Tris, what an awesome day! x
What an incredible wedding photography location on the Cote D’Azur in the South of France.Shooting a wedding on a 90-meter yacht used in aBond movie was incredible! Tara and Matt are the most down-to-earth couple you could meet and they were so overwhelmed and happy to be given the opportunity to marry on this family yacht in Eze, near Nice. The ceremony was relaxed with no footwear allowed on the boat and it was beautifully decorated with fresh lilies and roses. With the stunning background of the Cote d’Azur this made for a unique and special wedding. Dinner was held on the shore at a seafront restaurant with a local band providing excellent entertainment. This was one to remember. I wish you much happiness in your future together Tara and Matt!
