Adelaide Beach Engagement Shoot

Bentinmarcs Photography is to thank for this super adorable engagement shoot…and for the big goofy grin on my face. From the moment I opened this stunning shoot, I simply couldn’t help but smile – and you can see all the reasons why right here.

From Bentinmarcs PhotographyJonathan & Tricia travelled all the way from Singapore to Adelaide for a casual engagement shoot with Bentinmarcs Photography. The shoot started at a pine forrest they walked past daily when they both were studying at university. Before reaching the beach for a beautiful sunset we stopped off at a private location.

Elegant and Relaxed Garden Wedding

Every now and then I’ll look at a wedding and literally feel the couple’s abundant love for each other pouring out of the photograph.  Just keep scrolling and try to not feel your heart swell a little. Little touches like polaroids of past adventures, jubilant colors, DIY signage, added to the beautiful celebration.  Thankfully photographer Nicolle Versteeg‘s photos do the day justice. Take a look at the whole gallery here.


From the Bride… Niall and I met when our year 9 homeroom teacher made us sit together despite us trying to swap seats with our other friends. Over time we became great friends and after much flirting we became a couple. Since then we’ve grown up together, traveled to some amazing destinations and fallen even more in love

We’ve been taking trips down south for years so it seemed fitting to look there when it came to picking a wedding venue. We wanted a relaxed yet stylish venue for our wedding. As soon as we saw Chandeliers on Abbey in Yallingup, surrounded by beautiful forest and with a rustic barn we knew it was the perfect place for us.

When it came to styling the big day we tried to keep true to ourselves and the setting. Wedding blogs and Pinterest were a huge inspiration for us. In keeping with the rustic theme we collected wood pallets for a few months to create cocktail dispenser stands, table numbers, crates and a welcome sign. The font for the table numbers and sign were made from wool wrapped around cardboard cutouts.

We were pretty excited to find an old window frame by a skip bin which we managed to squeeze in to my small car. Once we got it home we replaced the glass and touched up the paint so it could be used for the seating plan.

As a small way of including our love of travel in the wedding, we decided to use a photo from our travels for each of our guest’s place card. We created the Polaroid look using the Poladroid app then added the names to the bottom before printing.

Using craft paper we designed and printed menus to wrap around our guest’s napkins.

Instead of a traditional bomboniere, we decided to donate to a great Cambodian charity Let Us Create, a day centre for disadvantaged kids. They provide a creative outlet for the students so we printed a couple of their paintings on a small piece of card for our guests.

Instead of a DJ or band we created our own playlists for the day (pre-ceremony, post-ceremony, dinner and dance floor). We were also very lucky to have a friend play acoustic guitar for the ceremony.

Tips: Enjoy yourself, know that something will go wrong but it won’t be the end of the world. The day will go ridiculously fast so be sure to make some time for just you and your new hubby at some point in the day. With so many great ideas on the internet it is easy to get carried away but try to pick a theme/colour scheme and then ask yourself if it matches. I think it goes without saying but set a realistic budget and stick to it. DIY aspects help to keep costs down and add a nice personal touch. If you plan to make your own dance floor playlist make sure there’s something for everyone and don’t leave it to the last minute. I also found that writing a run sheet was a great way to ensure all the boxes were ticked and to make sure everyone knew what they were doing.

Palm Beach Waterfront Wedding

It’s crazy to think that this gorgeous day was planned in just three short months, but let me tell you, loves: when you pair up a fabulous team of vendors with a bride and groom as awesome as these two, anything is possible.  Think a breathtaking waterfront ceremony meets hundreds of happy faces meets all kind of amazing moments captured by David Campbell Imagery.  See them all in the full gallery.


From the Bride… Kenny and I have been together seven years, but marriage still wasn’t high on our radar… at least I thought it wasn’t, until Kenny proposed during a trip to Switzerland last year.

Due to family circumstances we decided to have our wedding as soon as possible and to keep it local.

Scrapping our original plan to get married in Italy, I started calling venues and luckily The Boathouse Palm Beach had an opening, on Valentine’s Day no less!

For two people who had never envisaged their wedding day we knew we had quite a feat in front of us throwing a wedding together in three months! So the theme pretty much chose itself – simple and elegant. One thing I knew I did want was a bouquet featuring roses as homage to my Grandma, which Wedding Flowers By Renee put together along with simple baby’s breath for my bridesmaids.

The day started early with Zada Hair in charge of hair and makeup, making the girls look even more beautiful than they already are. We had a short, simple ceremony with Jessie Cacchillo, styled by The Wedding PA and Waves & Weddings for 85 guests on the Northern Beaches.

Our wedding photographer friend couldn’t take the photos as he was in our wedding party, so he put us onto Dave from David Campbell Imagery who was a joy to work with and did a fantastic. He also has an amazingly fast turnaround time!

The Boathouse looked stunning when we got to the reception and far exceeded any expectations we had. I didn’t have a chance to eat much on the night but I am so glad I had a piece of our wedding cake created by Cakes Plus as its one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. And it held of raining long enough for everyone to dance the night away!

So much love went into this wedding and we can’t thank our friends and family enough for all the help and time they gave in putting it together.
