Our Wedding

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary so it’s seems apt to write about one the happiest days of my life (equal only to the birth of our son)!

Both my husband and I grew up on the North Coast of NSW so early on it was decided that we would want to get married at home in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

We decided on a resort in Byron Bay which offered everything we were after; the beach, a relaxed atmosphere, a restaurant (as opposed to a stark function room) and the opportunity to celebrate the ceremony & reception in the day time! I always wanted a lunch time wedding, and we wanted to make the most of the amazing Autumn weather and have our guests enjoy the views of the area.

We held the ceremony & pre-lunch canapés on a beautiful grassed area right on the beach, and afterwards everyone mozzied on down to the restaurant. This is exactly how I imagined it would happen, I didn’t want people to be rushed so we ended up having pre-lunch go for about 2 hours on the beach, this was perfect for people to be able to catch up and just enjoy being in the sunshine! It was so nice to see the photos afterwards of all our guests wandering down to the restaurant for lunch, everyone looked so RELAXED!!

Everything was perfect, from the amazing sunshine, to the food, to the guests and of course to marrying my best friend – what an amazing experience!

A few of my favourite snapshots which capture the day……
