Lots of happy tears, laughter and a relaxed and fun party - that's how we will remember Sarah & Toby's Lake Macquarie wedding!
They chose a holiday rental as their venue, one that they use every year for family get-togethers, so it was the perfect choice for them. The houses had plenty of room to accommodate those guests that had travelled, and the place was already bustling when we arrived. It was all hands on deck, with family and friends setting up the marquee, arranging the flowers or baking up a storm to keep the kids occupied. It was a homely and relaxed atmosphere, which also helped Sarah and Toby settle their nerves.
Unfortunately the weather took an unpredictable turn, with heavy winds making a ceremony amongst the beautiful trees too dangerous (two parked cars were actually hit by falling branches!), so the ceremony was held in the marquee instead. An emotional ceremony with lots of humour was followed by even more happy tears and laughter in the speeches. The couple requested the bridal shoot to be kept very short - having lots of photos of their guests and celebrations was more important to them. We took them for a quick walk to the waterfront and onto a small walking track - after all you got to have a few photos of just the two of you!
We hope you enjoy a small peek into their unique day.
