Some weddings simply take my breath away. Tara & Josh's big day was one of these!
Zane and I travelled down to Mantra on Salt Beach, in NSW for this one, excited to be sharing a big day with this beautiful couple. We've photographed so many women from Tara's circle of friends, with three of their weddings being included in the mix. Each one has been spectacular and I knew that Tara & Josh would be no exception.
A beach wedding. Yay! The trick thing with a beach wedding is that you just never know what Mother Nature is going to throw your way. This day she decided to bring the big winds and the threat of rain…. so plans were changed slightly. Instead of heading to the beach Tara and Josh said their I Do's on the parklands approaching the beach, giving them much needed shelter from the wind. We did manage to get to the beach shortly for some pics afterwards, though this had to be done in micro moments. Fortunately, Tara had booked us for the whole day, so we had plenty of time to make sure we were able to fulfil their dreams of beach photos.
The blessings for this couple continued as we headed back from the beach, towards their cars. A lovely gentleman from the Life Saver's club offered a Lifesaving Buggy for photos. Haven't seen that one before. This was so much fun! Then, when were getting images under the gorgeous entry of the Mantra a patron of the venue was leaving, in his hotted up V8, and offered this to the Bridal Party for photos as well. Wowsers! What a great guy! In the end Tara & Josh actually chose the photo with this car for their Wedding Canvas - you can see the image as you scroll down. It looked AMAZING in large print!
This gorgeous couple were smart enough to take up every moment they had with Zane and I. This allowed us to capture a full day's images and such a beautiful visual story for them to enjoy and share.
Thank you Mr & Mrs Huntley! It was an absolute honour to be there for your big day. We look forward to photographing your family as it grows into the future xo
