Whilst on the Island of Laucala for Sam + Marks intimate wedding, we were lucky enough to be taken on a tour of the vegetable garden with renowned chef Jean Luc Amann. By golf cart, we went from the herb garden containing seemingly every herb under the sun, to the banana plantation which included an introduction to the gigantic coconut crab. We then sped off to view the vanilla bean plantation which was severely damaged in the last hurricane and the tour also included the green houses containing the more delicate vegetables like heirloom tomatoes and perfectly gown Japanese lettuce.
Here are a few of our snaps.
Brunch with the newlyweds! Annie and Andrew held a beautiful recovery brunch at the Swiss family chalet situated amongst the rolling hills of the Yarra Valley. Guests strolled through the impeccably maintained gardens, to be welcomed by a lavish selection of patisseries at the bakery. The morning continued as everyone recovered from the night before, basking in the sunshine, sipping champagne and enjoying a lawn game or two.
Guests were then invited to fill their plates from the seafood bar & harvest spread before taking their seats at the long rustic wooden tables which were adorned with dusty blue linen, lush green foliage & peachy florals.
Annie, Andrew and the team from Ruby & James pulled together all the perfect elements for a gorgeously relaxing recovery session.

Kylie gave her fiance Evan a honeymoon photoshoot in Rome! Isn't this the most beautiful wedding gift ever?!
Beating the heat and the crowds we met these two newlyweds at Trevi fountain - the perfect way to start any day! After tossing our coins into the fountain, we then explored some Roman alleyways on our way to the Colosseum where the walls glowed with golden sunlight as the sun began to peak over the horizon. From the Colosseum we then ventured toward the vine-covered laneways of Trastevere. This photo shoot made us fall in love with Rome all over again. The incredible history, epic backdrops and golden summer light.
To those of you looking for the perfect wedding gift for your fiance, we'll be based in Italy throughout July 2018.
Ciao Ciao until next year beautiful Rome!
Introducing one of the most beautiful weddings and couples we have ever had the pleasure of photographing. The stunning and so very down to earth Paris + Alex chose to have their wedding on the coastline of Southern California at the incredible Pelican Hill Resort. Perched beside a golf course & subtle ocean views, Pelican Hill maintains the perfect balance of luxury & relaxation, providing the ultimate setting for this special occasion.
The couple teamed up with EXquisite Events to create an opulent LA/Parisian inspired setting. Their ceremony was held under the arbour which was adorned with chandeliers and white flowers - white orchards, white hydrangeas and white roses to match the incredible vases that lined the aisle.
The outdoor sunset reception dinner at Mar-Vista was a lavish affair with gold accents and an abundance of white flowers. Incredible 'palm trees' with rose covered trunks, peppercorn foliage and dripping crystal chandeliers, stood between each table. The 7 tier wedding cake with white icing was decorated with French-inspired gold motifs.
Post dinner, guests were invited into the ballroom. Continuing the luxurious yet effortless party vibe - the ballroom styling emulated a chic Parisian apartment, paired with a disco ball covered ceiling.
A huge thank you to Paris & Alex as well as all their family and friends for being so kind and welcoming to us both. We had an unforgettable time and truly enjoyed every minute of photographing your moments.
We cannot wait to see the video captured by the incredibly talented Artisan Production.

Daniel & I absolutely fell in love with every detail at Borgo Santo Pietro. Trattoria Sull'Albero, their more casual dining experience won our hearts. We think it has something to do with the fact that this beautiful restaurant is built around a 700 year old black oak tree. The tree is the heart of the restaurant, it's huge trunk growing straight through the centre. With a tree house vibe and a spectacular view of Valle Serena, Trattoria Sull'Albero serve up deliciously fresh traditional Italian dishes. The perfect place to enjoy local produce while watching the sunlight fade in a pastel haze.

To celebrate their US launch, Leaders of Style II, Samuel Leetham and Saasha Burns of BEAR brought together a community of thought leaders, entrepreneurs and digital directors for an intimate event in Palm Springs, California. Guests arrived at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club from Los Angeles in the early afternoon and basked in the sun by the pool with views of the Coachella mountains, before being being transported in vintage Cadillac’s to Frank Sinatra’s 1947 Twin Palms estate.
Guests relaxed by the infamous piano shaped pool and sipped hand-crafted ‘pink moon’ and ‘desert shadow’ cocktails made with Chareau, a natural California Aloe Liqueur distilled in small batches with botanicals from local farms. As the sun went down, guests dined along two long tables finished with natural linen, wild desert flowers, vintage cermaics, Malfatti Glass, and Humble Ceramics artisan pottery. The effect was clean and minimalist, yet warm and inviting and evoked the subtle sensibilities of the desert and California’s Golden Age.

Alicia & Lucas married in late June and were blessed with the most beautiful and sunny winters day. Crisp and fresh with the warmth of the sun until last light. Their wedding ceremony was held at The Chapel at Stones Of The Yarra Valley and we adore all the beautiful moments shared between these two as they strolled from the chapel to the dairy, then onto the Barn to celebrate their new titles, husband & wife.

Daniel & I have been waiting for the right couple to photograph in the Arid gardens at Melbourne Botanical gardens and these two gorgeous babes were pure perfection. Photographed in early June, the light was fairly cold & moody but we felt blessed by the hint of sunset that popped out to give their photos a golden kiss. Both Lena & Theo wore custom made outfits paired with beautiful high end accessories. The gorgeous flowers were by Boutierre girls featuring roses imported all the way from Columbia - INCREDIBLE <3 These girls are insanely talented - a must follow for your daily dose of floral inspiration - @boutierre_girls.

We fell completely in love with Donna's styling. So much thought and effort went into every detail. She didn't overload her accessories, but instead carefully selected quality items & brands based on style, colours & textures. An ivory based tone paired with soft pastel mauve featured throughout, from the flowers, to the shoes, to the perfume and even to the stunning wedding dress by Steven Khalil. Donna also put alot of thought into her preparation venue, including making sure she picked the hotel room with loads of natural light.

These two high school sweethearts are two of the kindest souls you could ever hope to meet. Their wedding day was a beautiful afternoon in the Yarra Valley (At Stones Of The Yarra Valley) surrounded by love, laughter and support from all their nearest and dearest.
Their epic Dirty Dancing themed first dance, featuring their entire bridal party was totally absolutely awesome and really showed the love & support their friends and family shared for these two lovers.
