‘You know you’ve found the right wedding vendors when…’

Was the title of the email that came through at 8.12am on a Saturday morning from Tim. CC’d in were Cloud Catcher Studio, Tim’s fiancé Elaine, and Cut a Rug DJ. The email had screen shots of our respective websites – our Biggie and Tupac enquiry form page, and Cut a Rug’s shot of Kanye. Elaine and Tim love their old school hip hop and RnB, and we are so so lucky that they managed to find us on the wilds of the internet all the way from the US of A.

Although Elaine and Tim were half a world away at their home in San Francisco when Tim shot us all that email, we swear they must have heard the Cloud Catcher and the Cut a Rug teams pumpingggggg RnB music obnoxiously loud at a ridiculous hour of the night at the inaugural #officeparty… we’d only locked the studio doors some hours before that email came through (you guys should totally come next year. We will get more beer next time to save us all from the gin hangovers)

And so, from the get-go, we knew this was going to be a hell of a party. Elaine and Tim wanted their wedding day to feel like a backyard BBQ that celebrated their combined Aussie and American backgrounds. They also wanted to celebrate their wedding in a place that was a holiday destination for every single guest – so they converged on Byron Bay for a few days of maxin’, relaxin’, and partying very very hard. Oh, and Elaine got the chance to meet her idol Braveheart – the insta-famous poster-cow for The Farm. We were very kindly allowed into the cow paddocks (!!!!) so that Elaine could get starstruck, cry a little, and exclaim ‘THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!’ (marrying Tim was a close second to this particular moment).

Do you wanna see this wild party? The cows? The food? The dranks? The styling? Heck yes you do!

Shout out to our favourites Cut a Rug for making this D-Floor an 11/10. These d-floor shots are proof that when you find the right wedding vendors who just ‘get you’, this is where the wedding day magic happens.  Bonus points if you can find their lead photographer Alyce’s Tupac socks on the dance floor in amongst all of the craziness.

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….

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.

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!
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!
