Amoni + Paul // Carriageworks Wedding, Sydney // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films

Amoni + Paul are a special breed of awesome.

Their Movemeber wedding was held at the incredible rail-yards-turned-art-space Carriageworks in Sydney, and was filled with laughter, line dancing, a trio of singing mums and aunties, an unexpected dragon, floor cheese, fair maidens, Monty-Python-esq groomsmen and many, many, many moustaches.

Alastair and I were there as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films… we loved every minute we spent with these truly special beings.

Tiff + Terepai // Byron Bay Destination Wedding // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films

Tiff + Terepai chose the perfect location for their three days of wedding bliss; the beautiful Byron Bay. Sun, surf, crystals, tipis… drumming and dancing, feasts and ferns… laughter, love and the moon.

Alastair and I were invited as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films to capture their amazing family’s love story.

We joined Terepai, his oldest son Tainui and his mates on an early morning surf; visited the healing surrounds of Crystal Castle with Tiff, her besties and her adorable little gentlemen Rocket and Fin; partied and soaked in the sun throughout the wedding day at the stunning The Grove Byron Bay; and relaxed at a chilled recovery breakfast at Secret Garden the following morning.

The wedding celebrated their diverse heritage with a special Polynesian ceremony performed by Terepai’s mum, sister and Aunts, laying brightly-coloured traditional linens around the embracing family. After a sun-kissed golden hour portrait session with the beautiful couple, everyone ate, drank and danced into the night (with special drumming solos from Terepai and little rockstar Fin).

We were absolutely honoured to have been part of it, and to have had the chance to meet so many incredible, fun and talented people along the way.

Anna + James // Portugal Destination Wedding, Quinta De Sant’Ana // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films

If it weren’t for Anna + James, Alastair and I may never have made it to Portugal.

If we could, we’d visit every corner of the globe – but the world is just too damn huge, and there are too many amazing places to see. Neither of us knew much about Portugal, and it might never have reached high enough on the list of ‘must-see’ places for us to make the time to visit; so thank god Anna + James decided to get hitched there. Portugal – WE LOVE YOU.

Anna + James’ destination wedding was part sightseeing holiday, part food-fest, part beachside getaway, part fiesta. They were joined by 80+ of their closest friends and family to celebrate in style in the quaint towns of Cascais and Mafra, basing their stay at the incredible fortress-come-hotel+artist community Pousada Cascais, and celebrating the wedding day in the charming canary yellow grounds of the  Quinta De Sant’Ana (the latter came with it’s own friendly flock of white doves. Of course it did.)

Gorgeous people, incredible atmosphere, a gypsy jazz band, wine tastings, a lifetime supply of cheese, and a rave cave.

This is how you do it.
