emily & dave {bendooley estate}

15th April 2014

I’m a wee bit excited to be able to share this wedding.

Emily and Dave live in New york and popped over to the beautiful Bendooley Estate last year to get married.

(Bride to be Emily traipsed through airports wedding bound with Vera Wang slung over her shoulder. Oh yes she did.)

Here are a couple of my favourites.

And… my awesome fancy friends are featured on US Style Me Pretty today!

Style Me Pretty is kind of a big deal in the world of weddings so make sure you click here to see what all of the fuss is about.

Thanks for having an amazing wedding Emily and Dave. I’m still buzzing x

blake & sam {ocean farm}

20th December 2013

if i was allowed to have a favourite wedding, this might be it.

this is such a perfect and fulfilling way to end the year. i am so in love with this wedding

a south coast ocean hideaway with eleven guests and a ceremony under a fig tree.

top it off with a dinner party fit for a king (She Designs plus team you blow my mind) and a view to die for.

oh. complete with whales.

blake and sam, i do try not to gush but you did make all of my childhood dreams come true.

sam, a girl who’s not afraid to throw on some gumboots and play in mud and barbed wire fences is my kind of bride.

johnathan & manisha {sydney wedding} day II

14th December 2013

i must start by saying manisha is a superwoman with superhuman wedding powers.

who organises two perfect weddings of this magnitude to take place over one weekend.

i must admit, once i left at 10pm i needed a lie down in the park next door with some dusty city party folk.

my assistant assured passers by that i was in fact ok.

manisha and johnno, trust me, I don’t say this to everyone,

you rocked my world.

thank you thank you thank you. let’s stay in touch because I think you’re awesome x

johnathan & manisha {sydney wedding} day I

13th December 2013

my name is michelle and i am a quiet, composed wedding photographer who stands to the side and shoots your candid moments.

your flowing veil, your casually draped bouquet, your runaway flower girl…

but not today.

today i was thrown into the middle of 500 plus colourful, singing, dancing, drumming, elated friends and relatives of Manisha and Johnathan.

And oh my gosh. I had the time of my life.

I was jumping, ducking, swerving, clicking, cheering and laughing.

At one stage I ended up on the ground on top of the grooms feet. But that’s ok. I just shot his feet!

I was about 64% under control because I had a run sheet and an assistant who would point and wildly gesture at what I needed to shoot.

But when I saw the bride arrive at the venue entrance to meet the groom I was thrown. She wasn’t supposed to be there.

My run sheet and my madly gesturing assistant specifically said she was not supposed to be there.

But that’s ok. We were all excited! I just kept jumping and snapping and laughing.

The run sheet was right. The beautiful Manisha was inside. She had a twin.

And when my heart rate returned to a normal functioning state, we all had a laugh.

I am so so SO honoured to have had this experience.

There was colossal amounts of colour and emotion and excitement and love.

And Manisha and Johnathan are the nicest couple you’ll ever meet. I’m not joking, I mean ever.

It’s a day I’ll never forget.

ps. this is only day one! wait for day two…
