Welcome to our Real Life Weddings page !
This is where the spotlight shines on all of the amazing weddings that we shoot !
Today the spotlight is on Amy & Ashley’s beautiful Noosa Wedding !
Ashley had planned a romantic proposal at Lee Point beach in Darwin,(champagne and cheese in the Esky to celebrate), however, after a long day at work, the last thing I wanted to do was go to the beach. Ash finally dragged me down there and tried to have a romantic picnic on the sand, but all I wanted to do was go home and relax on the couch, so I got up to leave for the car. After trying to “trick” me into going back to our little picnic site several times by saying he’d forgotten something there, we left for home.
Ash had finally given up trying to be romantic, so while I was in the bedroom looking for something, I turned around and saw Ash down on one knee and started screaming “Not here, not here!” After I had the ring on my finger, Ash told me all about his romantic beach picnic proposal and how hard he’d tried to keep me there. Instead of Champagne and French cheese to celebrate, we had Pizza and watched movies on the couch.

Ben wanted a photo of my veil flying in the breeze, but because it was quite heavy it needed some encouragement. After Ash’s brother Dave trying unsuccessfully numerous times to fling it up to catch the wind and duck out of the way of the photo, my sister Bec said “What’s so hard about throwing a veil into the air!” and decided she could do it better. On her second attempt, she managed to completely rip the veil from my hair and throw it into the sea.
Favourite Wedding Day moment:
When all the legalities were out of the way and we could sit down with our friends and family and enjoyed our first meal as husband and wife.
Special thanks to:
My mum for all the effort she put into the invitations and guest favours, and Ben for helping the boys get ready.
