SITA & DAN | Montsalvat
Sometimes you meet people and you just connect. Just like that, you have a million things to talk about and can't stop giggling about random things. That's exactly what happened yesterday with these two lovers.
We had such a great time wandering around talking and taking photos all afternoon. The connection they share is truly beautiful and Sita has the most infectious laugh and positive energy.
Montsalvat in Eltham was the perfect place for us to spend the afternoon and the weather seriously couldn't have been any better. I can't wait to capture their wedding a little later in the year.
WINTER ROMANCE | Editorial
“Love's stories written in love's richest books. To fan the moonbeams from his sleeping eyes.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Think of old worldly charm and winter romance. The ghosts of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' hang heavily over this shoot but as a much darker and moodier version, romantic and mysterious.
I really wanted to shoot in a European forest which we were lucky enough to find near Creswick in Victoria. The burgundy and claret tones combined with forest greens helped create a whimsical, mystical and utterly romantic feel. Moss and mushrooms which we collected in the forest also helped create a raw and natural feel.
The location was paramount to this shoot! I really wanted an ancient and majestic grandfather tree in a beautiful European autumn/winter forest to be the central point of the setup. The entire team worked incredibly hard pulling this crazy vision together. It was a mammoth effort given the remote location and everything we needed to bring in for this shoot. We needed a generator, smoke machine, all the props, sweets, cakes and everything else in between but it was absolutely incredible to see this vision come to life!
In the end, the team from One Big Day Event Hire who played a major part in putting this shoot together were rewarded big time and named as one of Australia's Top 25 Wedding Stylist! Congratulation team! This is so well deserved.
Please make sure to watch the incredible film created by my good friend and all-around awesome guy, James from Zephyr Productions at the start of this post.
Here is a list of all the amazing vendors involved in this shoot. Make sure to check them out if you are on the hunt for suppliers for your big day.
A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of working with an incredible team of creatives to bring you some winter wedding inspiration.
It's no secret that the Lorne Beach Pavilion is one of my favourite venues on the Great Ocean Road and I was so delighted when Pania asked me to do a shoot with her. We gathered an incredible team of creatives and the Autumn months inspired us to create a cosy and intimate affair with rich deep colours, plenty of candle light and a touch of gold. The talented team also transformed the venue to show a side of the Lorne Beach Pavilion that has not been seen and I am flat out in love!
Take a peek at this magical shoot and be sure to check out the stunning film my good friend James from Zephyr Productions created.
This is a subject very close to my heart as I have many friends in the LGBTI community that are still waiting for the day when they can finally legally marry the love of their life. I was so excited when Renee asked me to join her creative crew for this amazing cover shoot. Love Drum is the first wedding magazine in Australia to showcase a lesbian couple on the front cover and I'm so excited that I got the opportunity to capture it.

When I was scouting for a venue to shoot ‘Summer Romance’ – I immediately fell in love with the beautiful garden wedding venue, Dalywaters Rose Farm and Garden.
Growing up in Europe, I was struck by how closely the property resembled the countryside in the South of France. We used to holiday there on weekends when I was young and all the visual and sensory elements of the rose garden, the lake and gorgeous little chapel brought all those childhood memories straight back to me. It’s such a romantic and incredibly elegant place to hold your wedding ceremony and I wanted to showcase my vision of how an intimate, vintage styled wedding day could be crafted so beautifully in this serene environment.
I have had the pleasure of working with an incredible team to bring this vision to life and I can highly recommend any of them for your big day.
