I was part of a collaboration between some incredible Canberran wedding vendors for a shoot to feature in Hooray magazine. The concept was to bring to life the free spirited bohemian bride that embodied the Wiluna Studio aesthetic, with wedding day styling inspiration shot in the Wiluna studio space, and the ‘day after’ story shot in the Naked Cubby ( see the next blog post for the images!). Earthy toned fresh and dried florals feature in the ceremony and reception styling, as well as a gorgeous bouquet and floral hat!
The talented (mostly) Canberra based vendors that formed this team included : Larissa from Wiluna Studio, Kate Anderson from Kate Lily Dressing Hair, Jessica Peris from The Beautique by Jessica Peris, Brow Lab, The Paper Botanist, Mrs Fray, The Naked Cubby, and our real life couple Linlin and Ben.

When Chloe and Dylan contacted me saying that they wanted to make the trip out to Lincoln’s Rock for their elopement, I was over the moon! This clifftop location near Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains is one of the most beautiful places I have photographed in.
Their elopement was so incredibly beautiful. They were joined by their Mums, their celebrant Charmaine, and a handful of random bystanders - who seemed genuinely touched by the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we braved the cold and wind and explored the gorgeous scenery surrounding Lincoln’s Rock and the sun went down. Here are some images from the day…. Read More
Kirrily and Jesse are the sweetest pair. I first met Kirrily through the creative community in Canberra- she is a talented model and actress (check her out on instagram- @kirrilynoble) and we had worked together on an editorial. I spent an incredible afternoon wandering around Lincoln's Rock in the Blue Mountains with Kirrily and her husband Jesse earlier in the year.
Lincoln's Rock in Wentworth Falls is the most magical spot- the white rock, the blue hue of the mountains, and that dreamy late afternoon haze gives the place an ethereal, otherworldly quality. A minimalist lover's dream location (except it was the weekend so there were lots of tourists around on the rock, but I think we did well to shoot around them). Read More
We had a run of wild weather in November and early December this year. On the Friday of Oumaya's and Jonathan's wedding, it absolutely bucketed down- we ended up getting rained out of our option A (A pergola at the Old Parliament House Rose Gardens), and also our option B (a small undercover area nearby), and had to come up with an option C real fast.
Luckily, our couple were quick-thinking and creative. We moved the wedding to their Burbury hotel room, and had the intimate ceremony with their 22 guests on their balcony. The girls laid out a flower petal aisle leading from the bedroom to the balcony, and Oumaya's beaming father walked her down to meet Jonathan on the balcony. It was one of sweetest, most touching ceremonies I've seen. Read More
Sandra and Daniel got married at St Gregory's Church in Queanbeyan and then had their reception at The Fitters' Workshop in Kingston. I felt honoured to spend the day with them and their closest friends from the start of the day while they were getting ready, to the beautiful ceremony, exploring forests in Piallago with the bridal party, and then joining in the celebrations at the Fitters' Workshop.
