On a warm and windswept day, Mel and Troy were married on Clarkes Beach, Byron Bay. It was an exciting wedding for me as I've known Mel since pre school and I was so thrilled to photograph her wedding. Anthony came along to help out and I have to say thank you to him for carrying all the gear all day, holding the reflector (even though I don't think I unfurled it) and doing the 150m sprint up the beach in soft sand when I left my second camera body in the car! Flowers on the Run did a lovely job of Mels flowers, her bouquet was filled with beautiful peonies.
The Blue Hulas entertained the guests before and during the ceremony and their music is wonderful and perfectly complemented our location. So worth clicking through on the link to hear their music:
Mel and Troy stood beneath a driftwood arbour contructed by Mels father as Brent Jones officiated the ceremony.
I'm afraid I can't tell you what happened to get this photo with this being a family blog and all, but I just love the laughter!
The light that afternoon was seriously yummy and it took all my will power to let Mel and Troy go so they could go their reception. I could have kept shooting all afternoon.
The reception was held at the Byron Bay Beach Cafe
The reception was heaps of fun! Mel and Troy had hired a karaoke machine, and to say it was popular would be a great understatement!
Congratualtions again, Mel and Troy. Sooo happy for you!!
Until next time,
