What can I say about Caitlin and Alex’s big day? It was so fun, relaxed and full of laughter (and pizza, so much yummy pizza!). Caitlin and Alex met while a freind was working at a pizza shop, and their first date was having pizza at Fingal Bay beach, so there were subtle pizza hints throughout the wedding, like Alex’s awesome socks!
The day started with me photographing the girls getting ready on site at Wonganella and Mer with the boys further up the Bay. The ceremony took place under a beautiful rustic archway surrounded by a lush green forest and with an incredible view over Port Stephens. After the ceremony had finished and everyone had made their congratulations, we made our way around the property with the bridal party, shooting some fun images while the bridal party enjoyed some vodkas.
After we had finished on site, Mer, the couple and myself jumped in my car and made our way to the Birubi sandunes. It had been raining earlier in the day, so it was a tad hairy getting up the sandy track through the bushland, but I’m always one for adventure, and so were Alex and Caitlin, so foot down, we drove through a huge puddle (that I swear I thought I’d lose my car in) with a splash and up onto the sand. Alex and Caitlin were such troopers, climbing up a massive steep dune so we could take advantage of the awesome views from the top! And boy was it windy up there! Luckily Mer was able to catch Caitlin’s veil as it took off across the sand. Our next stop was Boat Harbour where the bride and groom showed me an incredible rocky area. It was spectactular, and made even more so by the super angry ocean crashing against the rocks!
After a few more little stop offs on the side of the road for some random portraits, we made our way back to the reception. It had been beautifully decorated by the couple! Everyone enjoyed a feast of wine, beer, pizza and vodkas!
What an incredibly fun day!
