Kate and Luke said hellz yeah to marriage yesterday in the soggy hills of Montville at the incredible Spicers Clovelly Estate. It did indeed rain on their wedding day, thank you Alanis Morissette, but not during the most important outdoorsy bits of the day, so the only real victim of the wet weather was Kate’s beautiful gown (and Kate, who carried her sodden dress like an absolute professional and didn’t let it get in the way of a good photo or a good time).

The days where all of the things happen at the same location make decisions like ‘let’s wait until this shower passes to start the ceremony’ a hell of a lot easier on a wedding day, and being able to run for cover at the bridal cottage mid-portraits where the champagne is waiting is definitely a major pro to an all-in-one venue like Clovelly Estate.

It was awesome to spend the day with Kate and Luke and their beautiful family and friends, including a bunch of gals I hadn’t seen since high school (!!!). It was so awesome and humbling to be chosen to be by your sides yesterday, recording this next step in your adventures.

And then, the dance floor. Can we talk about the d-floor for just one second. You guys are ANIMALS. I have photos, do you wanna see? Let’s do this thing:

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

Kate and Cam
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

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.

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….

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!

Beck and James

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!
