Ash and Hamish’s beautiful wedding at Friday Creek Retreat went down over the weekend without a hitch (well, they got hitched, if you wanna get technical). Anyone who was at the wedding is probably reading this, scoffing  and going ‘uh, without a hitch? What about the hail? That storm? The heavy, driving rain? The mud? Geez guys, those things are not ideal!’

Well, it’s probably fair to assume that when planning their wedding, Ash and Hamish didn’t put hailstones on their wedding day pinterest board (although if they did, they nailed it), BUT. In between lashings of rain, we had a moment of serenity in which the ceremony went ahead as planned by the lake. We forewent our usual mingling/congratulations time to rock through family photos (keeping an eye on the clouds rumbling overhead) which left us with precisely 22 minutes for wedding party portraits – which, by the way, these guys absolutely aced – before the heavens opened once again. We high fived and raced back to their stunningly beautiful clear marquee and the warmth of a room full of the people they love most in the whole world.

So, if you wanna take a little peek at a preview of  how we through four seasons in one day and one wonderfully epic wedding, let’s do this:

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

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!

Hello cloud catchers,

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!

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….
