‘We’re pretty easy going’ Jemima shrugged as she told me about their guests a few weeks before the wedding. ‘I dunno, everyone just really likes each other!’. Fast forward to about 11.30pm last Saturday night when everyone was in a group huddle on the dance floor at Jemima and Sean’s wedding belting out You’re The Voice and the love in the room (if not the passionate singing/yelling) was enough to blow the roof off the Yamba Surf Club.

Yamba has been a special and significant place for so many of the guests – the older generations had holidayed there, brought their partners there, eventually they all brought their kids there. So much of Yamba retains that sweet, sleepy beachside town nostalgia we’ve all heard our parents all yearn for now that the Goldie is ‘chockers with skyscrapers’ and Byron is ‘full of yuppies’. So, on the headland, next to the lighthouse that has likely witnessed all of these generations coming and going and goodness knows how many marriages, proposals and touristy selfies, Jemima and Sean and their beloved families and friends all gathered for the official bit of the wedding, and then partied hard – and I mean HARD – at the Surf Club.

Jemima and Sean both described each other at different points of the day as ‘strong’. I’d also chuck ‘generous’ in there, generous with their time (which is a very precious commodity on a wedding day, and how lucky are we to have a little piece of this time with them!), with their laughter, and their affection for the people around them. It was so hot on Saturday you guys, and no request was too much (not even, hey guys go climb that massive hill or hey guys, can you stand really close to those crashing waves on that rock over there). We went home after midnight sweaty AF, packed off with a few bottles of wine tucked under our arms at their insistence, and hearts so very very full.

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….

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.

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

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!

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!

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
