Jess & Blake’s Byron Bay wedding was one I had dreamed of for many years! Their ceremony was held at Ewingsdale Hall not far from Byron Bay followed by a beautiful reception set up at The Belongil.
I loved every part of this beautiful Byron Bay wedding! Everything from the intricate details of the boys’ wooden ties, engraved with anchors to reflect Blake’s navy background, through to the fine lace dress Jess adorned with such grace and style.
Ewingsdale Hall and it’s surrounding grounds was the perfect location for their simply elegant ceremony (by Kate Priddle-Civil Celebrant), petals graced the grass isle right up to the arbour decorated with roses and Australian native leaves, the perfect contrast to the massive camphor Laurels behind. Their ceremony was simple and sweet, capturing their lasting relationship and adoration for each other.
We used the Figs that overhung and lined Ewingsdale Rd as our first backdrop for their portraits. The sun casting it rays through the leaves gave the most incredible soft lighting and created a great mood. After we headed to a private property I found with a beautiful old farm shed which Jess had dreamed to have photos at. We laughed, giggled and had a great time at the farm as we captured some truly special moments between the two love birds.
The reception was styled with great attention to detail, Leaves hanging from old wooden ladders, strung to the ceiling and light bulbs peeking through from every angle.
There was laughter like no other night, singing, lots of dancing, some funnier that others and all round lots of fun!
I absolutely loved shooting this wedding and hope you enjoy the preview of their special day.
