First kiss against the breathtaking backdrop that is @suzarosabluemountains 💫💫 Beautiful Megan and Marcus are probably two of the most grounded and gorgeously humble people I’ve ever come across and despite a day where nothing went to plan (hello insane gale force winds forcing everyone inside 😅🕺), I have never seen two people who worked so hard to keep their humour intact and laugh (often helplessly) through the unpredictable events of the day ❤️❤️ I’ll be honest, I’m yet to see a day that goes exactly according to plans and I think if you go into your wedding with an open heart and focussing on what’s actually life changing levels of importance here (ie you get to marry your love, all your family and friends are here cheering you on), you will never regret going in with that approach 💫💫 Things will go “wrong”, at that point there’s nothing else you can really do, be like these two and laugh your way through it and have an amazing time anyway ❤️
Suz and Justin 15.2.20 | In such a short time Suz and Justin have established their shared values and base for starting a life together. Importantly this is without compromise to the wonderful family and friends around them, a great base for supporting each other to try new things, challenge their comfort zones and really appreciate the wonderful life they have established over not one, but two continents.
So, Justin decided to make it all official and ask this beautiful Scott to marry him with a flamingo card (Justin rocked some very cool flamingo socks for the wedding flamingo 🦩) and a very nice necklace on Christmas Day in 2017…
In Suz’s own words… “He gave me a necklace. It was very nice, he did very well. Then someone asked about a ring. I said I hadn't ever really thought about what kind of ring I wanted and that we'd need to go shopping. He whispered - "that's an expensive necklace, it was kind of instead of the ring". I said "thanks, its lovely, but I'll keep the necklace and we'll get a ring as well" 😂. ….and the rest as they say is history as we found ourselves at @paxtonwines on Saturday recognising the wonderfully natural and down to earth evolution of this awesome couple. Congratulations Suz and Justin #imarrythebestcouples ❤️🦩 Check out this incredible team...

I’m currently updating my website so it’s giving me a push to go back over images from the last few years. This one is a real favourite. Ashlea & Sam on the amazing tulip staircase at @rmgvenues Queens House.
Sunday night contemplation▪️
The end of a week is a good time for reflection and preparation
I'm spending this one thinking about progress made and plans for the next six months - also ordering some BEAUTIFUL ribbons (40 metres of silks and velvet to be exact) in preparation for my next wedding!
How are you spending yours?..
✨All the feels✨A lovely human bean said this reminded them of a Thomas Hardy novel- can’t really get much more of a compliment that that! (@justjoeyonthemoon 😘😘) .
The idea with this design was to keep it fresh & minimal - perfect for a modern backdrop such as the ceremony room at @millbridgecourt . I literally wanted it to look like I had dug up a section of meadow from a field, bringing the outside in ( don’t worry I didn’t dig up a field) A late summer chilled vibe methinks.
