So, how does it all work .... y'know, the photography!Jan 13

Very. Good. Question.

When you think about it, having your photograph taken isn’t really the most natural thing in the world for most people and your wedding day may (or may not) be the only time in your entire life that it is done by a professional.

And sadly, many people are convinced they don’t like having their photo taken or that they look terrible in photos.

Truth 1: If you don’t enjoy having your photo taken, it’s more than likely only because you’ve never had it done by a professional photographer.

Truth 2: When done right, everyone can be photographed beautifully and look amazing in their wedding day images.

For the most part, I will be around you all day, however, it’s more than likely you will have totally forgotten I am there before your hair and makeup is even finished.

As for shooting portraits, well it’s slightly different but this is where the magic comes in…

People all connect in different ways, and for me, as your wedding photographer, it’s really just a matter of allowing that individual spark or connection to shine through so that in essence, what we are really capturing is a fourth-dimensional experience within a two-dimensional format.

In this way, worrying about how you ‘should’ be posing or feeling awkward about the fact you are being photographed seem to just fall to the wayside, and you will  be able to really ‘see’ yourselves and the people you were at this point in time as you look back on these images for the rest of your lives.

Trust me, when your photography is done right, you won’t even remember being photographed, only how you felt on the most important day of your lives. As it should be.

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not Weddings is the ultimate country destination situated in the Byron Bay hinterland, 10 minutes from Byron Bay and 5 minutes to boutique Bangalow.

On a scenic hundred acre working cattle farm, it is very private and tranquil. Overlooking a large lake with water lilies and a little row boat beside an old wooden jetty. Surrounded by prizewinning gardens and rainforest plantings. Turn a corner and find another secret spot, relax and listen to the running water of the natural little waterfalls amongst the rainforest.

Choices of ceremony spots, maybe overlooking the water or under the shade of the trees perhaps in front of the private outdoor chapel?

There is a large level grassed area to have your tipi’s or marquee. The site can comfortably accommodate 300 guests. A toilet block with rustic exterior and 5 star interior is provided. The farm with cattle, horses and the post and rail fence in the background frames the tipi’s which overlook the gardens and water, such a gorgeous view. As night falls, the atmosphere changes with all the lights reflecting onto the water. A magical place.

For the smaller wedding there is an undercover deck beside the homestead pool. This caters for about 36 seated or 50 standing guests and is a spectacular setting for canapés.

Our accommodation is an ideal place for your wedding party to get ready. It is also a special place to relax, reflect and enjoy after your special day. Beautifully furnished with period pieces. Air-conditioned bedroom with a comfortable iron bed. The accommodation includes an amazing western-styled saloon bar with billiards table, pinball machine and arcade system. Contains a separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a swimming pool, undercover deck and BBQ area, even an outdoor fire pit to keep the night warm and cosy. Sleeps 2-4 with one queen size bed and an extra double bed if required.

Forget Me Not Farm is a truly beautiful country location and is both private and spectacular. This is the ideal place for your destination wedding.

I would love to be able to share it for your special day.
