A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to capture Nick and Emma’s wedding. When I caught up with them the week leading up to their big day I knew it would be a pretty special one and it didn’t disappoint! Chris and I also photographed Nicks brothers wedding last season, its always awesome working with couples that you have met at previous weddings. Guess we did a good job the first time around!
Nick and Emma chose Low Head as the location for their wedding. With both sides of their families having strong ties to the area, and in fact it was at low head that they first met!
We were blessed with a comfortable sunny day which started off with Nick and his boys playing some golf, activities like this are an awesome way to start the day, gives me a good chance to get to know all the boys and everyone have a bit of a laugh about their lack of golf skills, or maybe it was just the wind.. I then went and caught up with the girls who were well into the long and exciting process that is hair & make up on wedding mornings. Emma and her girls got ready at her parents shack just a few hundred meters from what would be their ceremony location, the light house at Low Head. It was also at this point in the day that I met their beautiful Golden Retriever, Wally, which as anyone that knows me could tell you was a huge distraction for me, haha! Wally also wondered around the ceremony at the light house, going to all the wedding guests for pats & love and even visiting his owners to say hello a few times during the ceremony which was pretty cute!
The Light House at Low Head offers many beautiful backdrops for photos. Its one of my favourite locations to shoot for sure. We got some great photos here and moved on to another location just down the road on the golf course, this was also the location of their reception. I should also mention that Nicks father, John, had been kind enough to lend 6 of his beautiful cars for their day, the collection also included an e-type jaguar which is one of the most beautiful and most respected cars ever built.
Nick and Emma had probably the most incredible marquee set up that I have ever seen. With a very unique clear marquee taking full advantage of the ocean side views that are significant to the couple. With a huge amount of light inside showing their beautiful decorations. One of the advantages of a marquee is that you can determine when the celebration ends. The couple didn’t want to be limited to a 11:30pm finish and encouraged their guests to celebrate their wedding into the early hours of sunday!
A huge thanks for having me along to capture your day guys, it was really enjoyable for me and we captured some photos that I really love and am proud of. I wish you all the best for your future together!
