Gabrielle and Gareth’s Phuket Wedding 07.07.2014

When it comes to the wedding photographer lottery, this adorable couple struck it very lucky with Hilary Cam Photography.

Hilary Cam Photography explains that they too felt pretty lucky to capture this wedding, “It’s not every day we get to combine our two favourite things, travelling and photography, but every so often a generous couple like Gabrielle and Gareth provide us with that opportunity. We turned up in Thailand and were glad we had arrived with a day to acclimatise, as it was hot and humid. So much so that going outside our air-conditioned room caused all our lenses to fog. While the heat was an obstacle, we had on our side an attractive couple and scenery. [Also] the Jewish ceremonies scattered throughout the day were full of energy and warmth, matched by the stunning beach sunset that seemed to go on forever.”

Gabrielle is South African, while Gareth is Australian, so the gorgeous couple chose to wed in Phuket at Katathani Phuket Beach Resort, as it’s located between South Africa and Australia. Thus, making it easier for both families to travel and share the day. And what a gorgeous day it was.

Charles and Kathryn’s King Island Wedding 09.06.2014

Here’s a make-your-day Australian wedding that really amps up the sweet and gorgeous factor.

This lovely couple first meet in Darwin through a mutual friend and “hit it off immediately,” recalls Kathryn. Their relationship flourished through phone calls and text messages, as Charles was located in WA, whilst Kathryn was located in Darwin. Seven months after they first met, Charles surprised Kathryn with a trip to Darwin, where with the help of their mutual friend Anna, Charles was given the key to Kathryn’s house. When Kathryn arrived home, Charles dropped to one knee and proposed.

The adorable duo wed at King Island on Kathryn’s amazing family property, Fraser Bluff. The ceremony took place on the bluff, a breathtaking hilltop overlooking part of the eastern shore of King Island.

After a short service followed by a toast, guests walked back to the house for the cocktail-style reception. The reception featured a huge array of King Island produce from the iconic King Island cheese to lamb cutlets and crayfish. For dessert, the couple had a dessert buffet which was made solely by Kathryn’s girlfriends on the island and her two sisters. For their wedding cake, Kathryn’s mother made a gorgeous fruitcake.

Reasons to adore this wedding: Guests entertained themselves with a giant Jenga, which was handmade by Kathryn’s father. The reception had campfires. The bride carried a bouquet of flowers picked from the property the morning of the wedding. The impressive bride and bridesmaid did their own hair and make-up.

Rachael and Amon’s Fitzroy Wedding 31.03.2014

Tears of happiness, that’s how much we love this Melbourne wedding.

The stunning couple wed at the Good Shepherd Chapel where Rachael’s sister-in-law, Katie, sang ‘Fools Rush In’ as the bride walked down the aisle in a gown made by Melbourne couture designer Helen Manuel. Amon waited for her at the end of the aisle in a custom Cerulean Blue Ralph Lauren suit and black bow tie. The colourful bridesmaids picked their own dresses, while the groomsmen wore a floral print Paul Smith shirt and bow-tie and suits from their own closets. After the nuptials, the couple were whisked away in a friend’s 1975 black mustang convertible for photos.

Oli Sansom Weddings captured the charming wedding and commented, “The inspiration behind Rachael and Amon’s wedding came from their combined personality traits. The whole day mirrored the type of people that they are. Rachael being a whimsical creative type and Amon being a sophisticated traditionalist type, they wanted a wedding that felt both formal and informal at the same time.”

The lovely bride used her background in graphic design to design the silk-screened poster-style invitations, the reception decor and the overall styling for the day. She used a loosely applied floral aesthetic to achieve a little bit of cohesion in the bridal party, and let the colour do the rest of the talking.

The charming reception was held at the Fitzroy Town Hall, which encompassed both a formal and informal vibe. The bridal party decorated the steps of the Town Hall in colourful streamers as guests arrived and greeted guests with the couple’s favourite cocktails – the French 75 and the Cadillac Margarita.

The inside of the hall was adorned with unstructured bouquets of wildflowers in jars designed by florist Emily Bourne, while colourful fruit and vegetables were laid out on the tables to mimic a Dutch still-life painting. Table numbers and candles were a quick DIY project that involved painting white numbers on jars and taping parchment paper around.

As for the food, the couple chose a delicious tapas menu created by Sorella Foods. The menu including some of the couples favourite dishes like meatballs, mac & cheese, and meredith dairy goats cheese. To save a bit on catering costs, the couple also asked family and friends to make an array of delicious deserts and cakes.
