Lucy Spartalis and Alastair Innes - a destination wedding photography & videography duo based between Byron Bay and Melbourne, creating cinematic films and breathtaking photographs in a creative, modern style.

Introduced by a mutual friend outside a local pub, we soon began dating and sharing our work with each other, immediately realising how perfectly suited our styles were. Very quickly, ‘She Takes Pictures He Makes Films’ was born.

We work stealthily and unobtrusively, capturing real moments as they happen, and helping you to relax and enjoy your day. Never overcrowding you, or asking for awkward smiles from you and your guests, you won’t even notice we’re there. After all – your day shouldn’t be one big photo shoot, or feel like a film set! Your day is a celebration for you and those you love.

When the time comes for the portrait session, we’ll help guide you through the process (we know how hard it can be to pose for photos) and will help you to create truly unique, artistic images to frame and treasure. Alastair’s 6-8 minute films are beautifully edited to music – the perfect way to share your story online with friends and family.

We’ll capture all the details; the little things that you miss, the huge moments you never want to forget – and we’ll stay as long as you need us to. We may even join you on the dance floor. We feel truly honoured to work with incredible couples around the world and would absolutely love to hear from you.

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.
