Ryan and Mel were married late last year at Peppers Salt Resort & Spa in Kingscliff. It was such an amazingly bright and happy day. We photographed Ryans sister, Katrina’s wedding a few years ago, so it was lovely to catch up with her and “Danger” and meet the new addition. (She is gorgeous guys!) It was also so great to catch up with Melissa’s family again – we took some family photos for them early last year so felt rather at home with so many familiar friendly faces around.
There is lots I could say about their day, but I’m going to do it through photos instead- and also through the amazing videography by Geoff from Motion Art (If you are even remotely considering having video taken at your wedding you must check out his beautiful work!)
Oh wait, there was one thing I had to say- the purple undies! I laugh every time I catch a glimpse of those last photos haha!
We had a lovely surprise a couple of weeks back when Kim and Nathalie contacted us after 3 years to let us know they love their photos, and had decided they wanted to get a wedding album:)
As Adam went through their images with them, there were so many they had forgotten about! Yes, they had a CD, but that really doesn’t compare with having an album you can cosy up on the couch and look through with your kids in 20 years time.
As I’ve been looking through their photos designing their album, I just can’t help but reminisce a little! Sooo here we go! It really was one of the most beautiful heart felt weddings we’ve ever attended. It was small and intimate. The people were gorgeous, the venue (The Fig Tree Restaurant) was just beautiful and for dinner, everyone sat together at a long table that stretched the room. Couple that with Byron Bay to play in for the wedding shoot how could any of it go wrong? (And it was a mid week wedding- they always seem so much more relaxed, I think because everyone is in holiday mode perhaps?)
You will see in the images below the amazing rain cloud that came over during the photo shoot. It absolutely poured at the venue while we were out taking photos- we didn’t see a drop of it!
And now for some pictures 2007 style:) (Lots of them!).
