Cliffs and Mel’s wedding journey began with a legals only wedding in Melb CBD, where I met them for coffee at @highergroundmelbourne, and we made it official whilst ‘Jump Around’ played on the background. (There may have been some dancing at this point in time, while Mel exclaimed-this is our wedding song! 😂)
A few months later, came their wedding day, which began with a beautiful traditional #chinesetea ceremony, where Cliff and Mel celebrated with their families, embracing their cultural heritage and wedding day traditions. 🍵 🇨🇳💕
This was followed later that same day, by their ‘BIG’ wedding, down by the sea at the stunning @jackrabbitvineyard , where we stood facing the stunning fields of green vines and foliage, with the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula as our backdrop, it was breathtaking... 🍷🍃 🌊 .
During the ceremony, Mel was pleased to see her groom Cliff shed more tears than any of us expected! (Happy tears, of course ) and they shared their powerful wedding vows before friends and family.
For the finale, as I was heading over to the side to pronounce the beautiful bride and groom husband + wife, a huge and unexpected gust of wind blew up, and my dress turned upside down! 😂🙈👗(yes, really!) It was a hilarious moment, and we all belly laughed, cheered for the newlyweds, and the joyful party mood was more than set for what was to be an incredible and memorable evening.
The funniest things about weddings? The unplanned, unexpected parts are often the parts you remember most-don’t be afraid of them but embrace them, and you will have the best day of your life x
My favourite part of a wedding ceremony is hearing the promises the couple make to each other. When else in life do we get to publicly pledge our love and commitment to someone or something? It really is a sacred moment. Amelia & Iman have one helluva love story. Captured here beautifully by @emilydafter
Aaahhhh sorry so many pictures ~ but I love these so much ~ mainly because they were taken by our dear friend Daniel Sharman and Father Bruno a priest from the Vatican (recruited by our Priest) to take them. Lol!!! 😁Believe me, my old self would have had everything so planned out for this day, but time has taught me that you can lose what is really important by trying to have everything just perfect. We were going to be happy to just have these memories in our hearts but angels showed up to help us never forget this day with the gift of these photos. 🙏🏼🕊#grateful precious unplanned moments in #roma#wedding#vows#ido#vaticano Fun facts about this photo: our priest is wearing a Robe that was worn by Pope John Paul 🙌🏼🕊~ the handsome one next to me can be seen soon on Netflix’s Medici as King Lorenzo ⚜️💫
This was 4-years ago! Captured my facial expression of one of the happiest moments on of the happiest days of my life. I couldn’t believe it happened! God was, is, and always will be so, so good! 🙏 And I will forever be grateful to @beachesresorts for the amazing vow renewals at their Turks and Caicos resort.
Hope you enjoyed my 12-photo grid spread of tropical paradise and breathtaking beach weddings we’ve experienced. It was great reflecting on all of the amazing places we traveled and got to experience.
Yesterday marked 8 years that I’ve been married to this stud. In the past I’ve made some pretty incredible sentiments. That 5 year one though?! JK! I can honestly say that because I publicly acknowledge your goodness often because you deserve that and more! So, @mister_bistor you already know... #youdabaddest and I’m the luckiest to get to navigate this life with you! I love you BIG! Anddd for the record thanks for dealing with my meltdowns, anxiety, so many HORMONES, and my just plain bat s**t crazy over the last 8! Somehow you handle that alone with all the grace and then manage all the things! It’s legit impressive how you handle it all. You’re a boss and I do NOT deserve you! My goal is to be more like you each day! Seriously. Wish you could have relaxed like this first picture yesterday, but you got way too many kids for that! 😂😘🤗 ....#husbandsofinstagram#marriage#happyanniversary
A-men. Came across one Meme and then remembered the Meme from hubs. Marriage is a choice. Loving is a choice. It takes work in every relationship. It takes patience and listening and understanding. It can be hard to live with another human. Sometimes it actually isn’t easy to love 24/7 even though you know you love someone deep down. It really isn’t a fairy tale. But you can make it da BEST. #friendship#Raw#Relationships#marriage#LetsBeReal#vows#husband#wifelife#imperfections#perfection
The weekend is finally winding down.
I know that in this age of technology, experts always tell you it's healthier for kids to go out and get some fresh air. BUT we also want to let you know, we understand when you can't do it ALL the time. Being a parent of one, three, or even ten little ones can be difficult and sometimes even impossible to take everyone out. (multiple diaper bags filled with many different water canisters, snacks, and a chance of clothes anyone?) So if this weekend was an in home adventure for you and your kids, it's okay. .
But if you did have a chance to go out, I hope you were able to get your picture perfect moments with your loved ones. 🙂
Remember, Always Celebrate in Style

Oh.em.gee. I think I have found a little hidden gem of a service in my business that I REALLY love doing! Pre-wedding Bridal Sessions! Briana and I met a few weeks before her wedding and we captured images of just her without the pressure of a wedding day timeline. I am certainly looking forward to photographin more of these unique sessions 😍
If rain on your wedding day means good luck, you are staring at some LUCKY newlyweds! Congratulations Daniella & David!! A special thank you to every single vendor that pulled this day off with the added elements! Tap for tags of the vendors you should 100% hire!
