Steve + Lauren

October 28th, 2014

Hooking up, picking up, hanging out, dating – scary stuff really, isn’t it?  I know I probably don’t get many single readers here cause, let’s face it, who wants to look at wedding photos when your own wedding seems like a potential distant dream.  So very far away you can’t even imagine it.  But you know, you can meet that person anywhere, anytime.  Tomorrow, you could be walking down the street and BAM – you meet the person of your dreams and start your life together.  If not tomorrow then perhaps the next day, or the next.  If you really think about it, your husband or partner was once a stranger like the people you see on the bus, or at the grocery store, or in the library.  Complete and utter strangers.  The jump from strangers to lovers isn’t really that big if you think about it like that.  All is takes is a spark.  The story of how you fall in love gets crafted over time.  Each time you tell it you both play your parts, say each bit as rehearsed so buy the time your kids are born it is like a fair tale, a story that has its own rhythm, its own cadence, just like your love does.  Lauren is a doctor.  A dermatoloigist to be precise so you can only imagine how many people come up to her with a rash, mole or spot and ask her opinion.  It’s got to be pretty annoying, standing at a bar kicking back when a stranger comes up to you and all of a sudden they are thrusting their finger or leg in your direction asking if they are going to live!!  Occupational hazard?  You bet.  And yet, Steve, he had a rash on his elbow.  From utter strangers, to looking at his elbow to falling in love and now being married.  Seems unlikely?  Yes.  But impossible?  Never.  Love is magical that way.  Strangers to lovers – nothing strange about that.

The boys’ suits are by Michael Innis Menswear.  Smart, sleek – a perfect fit, like Bond.  Martinis anyone?


All of the stunning flowers were by Kate Dawes Flower Design.  She is a master at work and these flowers were no exception!

Lauren’s dress was by the one and only Brad from Darb Couture.  Brad’s work is second to none and he makes the most beautiful gowns as you can see.  Stunning!

Steve and Lauren’s reception was held at Mirra Private Dining in the Valley.  A wonderful location with a great private club like vibe.  And a perfect place to get your boogie on, later on…

Paul + Annina

October 3rd, 2014

Can you feel it?  Summer is on its way!  The days are getting warmer, the nights, almost balmy. For some unknown reason to me, this winter has been hard.  Too cold, too dark, too…something.  Normally I dread the summer with its long, hot, sticky days but I can tell you this summer is going to be good!  My plan is to spend all of my time on the beach – plan?  Maybe dream, you know what I mean.  But before summer starts to really shine you get spring, her sexier, sweeter cousin.  And when you work in wedding photography, nothing heralds spring than wedding season.  I mean how could you not want to get married in this weather, with all its blue skies, bright sunshine, cool breezes?  So today on a gorgeous, simply perfect day, I give you Paul and Annina and their lovely, love-filled wedding.  With their ceremony held on the lawn of the Powerhouse and their cocktail reception just inside, Paul and Annina were aiming for a fun and casual wedding focussing on making it easy on their guests and giving them maximum time to party!  They were married by the one and only Paul Voge Marriage Celebrant who, a part from being an all round awesome guys, is an photographer’s dream by popping out of frame at those crucial, photo-worthy moments.  You may not be able to see him but I can assure you, he was there!  Annina’s dress was by Bertossi Brides, her spring flowers by Flower Lovers and her gorgeous hair and makeup by those super professionals, The Powder Room.

As you all now about my L.O.V.E. for any and all dogs, this here is Rueben.  He’s mighty awesome and features heavily in the wedding.  I’m happy to babysit this dude anytime, anywhere.  That face, GAH!

The stunning blackboard is by the always fabulous but better-get-in-quick-or-you’ll-miss-out, Blackboard Artworkx.  The lovely pot of daisies were for Annina’s dad who passed away a few years ago.  My mother was a lover of daisies too and now that she too has passed, I think it is such a lovely sentiment.  I’m sure your dad was there in spirit, Annina.

A CHEESE CAKE!!!!!! That is a cake made entirely of cheese.  Anyone who knows me well, knows of my love of cheese.  Any type, I’m not fussy.  So this new trend is rocking my world.  Paul and Annina’s version was made by Colin James Fine Foods.  I’m not sure who did their gorgeous cake topper but leave a comment if you want to know and I’ll ask.  Paul and Annina coupled this cheese cake with a ham bar.  Does anything go better than ham and cheese?  I mean, really??


Paul and Annina had a visitor’s book that consisted of hand written comments form guests and silly polaroids.

The band that got THIE PARTY STARTED was Radio Club Band.  Versatile, professional, fun – these guys can get your granny to get down!!!!  Funktastic!

Something totally unexpected and tremendous that Paul and Annina did was commission Soymilk Weddings to do an animation of their love story.  Not only is it a gorgeous keepsake from the day, it wowed their guests!  I simply love it – so please take the time to see “Paul and Annina – How it all came to be!”
