Yesterday Ashlinn and Ben and their absolute closest, nearest and dearest family and friends (plus some chooks, and a dog) gathered under a big fig tree. I’d typically say something about their solemn vows, but those of you who know Ashlinn and Ben know there’s not much solemn about them. Ashlinn had warned us about Ben, but she need not have worried! He was being relatively well behaved and most importantly keeping his beautiful bride laughing the whole time.

I don’t know if it was the Harvest sourdough, or the warm and uncharacteristically bright sunshine all damn day (it rains a lot in Byron!), or the macadamia groves or the big old figs or the long green grass or the eternal blue of the ocean on the horizon, or those dodgy swiss-cheese back roads, or the beer in the champagne glasses we were handed post-ceremony but Byron Bay is hearts’ home to Lara and I, and we were both so freakin’ happy to be there and welcomed into this wonderful tight-knit gang.

OMG GUYS!!! they are so fabulous!!

James hasn’t looked through them all yet – he’s only seen a handful but he’s in love already. And me – well I’m ecstatic! they’re wonderful guys – we love them and we love you! They brought back all the feels and we’re so happy and thrilled with the day and the photos. I’m laughing in nearly every photo – I clearly had a good day! hahahaha!!! Thanks again lovelies – you truly are just the best and are total babin’ Queen camera ninjas!

Hello cloud catchers,

All I can say is wow the photos are amazing and everything we wanted out of the day. The finer detail is incredible thank you so much.
Nikohl and Ben

When we first started planning this wedding just a few months ago, finding a photographer nearly did my head in because I was so hell bent on finding someone who would capture the day in a way that truly reflected us and our relationship. Well, we had to go to Brisbane to find them, but Alyce and Ash have surpassed my wildest dreams! Can’t wipe the grin off my face right now….

These are AMAZING! I can not even begin to thank you enough! These pictures are beautiful and are totally everything we were hoping for and more. Thank you again!

I just wanted to say thankyou so much for Saturday. We had a blast sharing the day with you. You are such talented photographers but also awesome, caring and top women. We had such a magical day and you helped make me feel as beautiful as I ever will. Your care, love, effort and pride in your work did not go un-noticed. We would recommend you to everyone.
Lots of love xxxx

Hiiiiii,
Thank you so much for your email. You’re probably going to laugh reading this but I was finally able to access this email after I finally achieved one of my life goal of taking a selfie with a llama and was like “yasssss best day EVER”. As we finally connected to wifi for me to upload one of my 500 llama shots I saw your email. Poor Brett thought I had really lost the plot as I burst into happy tears in the hotel lobby and then showed all these random Peruvian hotel workers the pictures saying “holy shit, this is us’.
I was so so worried on the day as when I get nervous / anxious I screw my face up like an angry potato and was silently freaking out I had ruined your pictures but your pics make me look nothing of the potato variety! They are stunning and both Brett and I can’t believe we scrubbed up so good haha.
Thank you for capturing those tender moments between us. I’m so in love with the pics!
Cheers,
Nat (and Brett aka her kiwi gentleman lover) xx
