Coffs Harbour destination wedding

It’s always an exciting time when you get to travel somewhere new to capture a wedding.

In this case, it was Coffs Harbour in NSW. Kimmie first came across our work when we photographed one of her family members’ wedding in Cambridge about 8 years ago now!

Ever since then, she’s been following Perspectives and was super stoked to find out that I was based in Australia during the time they were planning to get married – score!!

Kimmie & her Mum have a business creating bespoke wedding gowns … so it was natural that her dress was going to be a work of art! More than 100 hours of work went into crafting this epic dusty pink & white wedding dress, with stunning beadwork, beautiful jewels, and a gorgeous veil.

The day before the wedding, we scoped out this amazing headland just down the road from the wedding venue. It was going to be the perfect sunset spot – and we had arranged that during the evening we’d sneak out of the reception for 15 minutes to capture some sunset action.

However, on the day, the clouds rolled in and I decided that sunset was most likely not going to happen … so we hastily changed the plans for the location shoot and rolled the headland in with the other spots. I’m stoked we did – the moody clouds & stormy clifftops were so perfect. Kimmie and Tom were champions – braving the wind whipping veil & hair all over the place!

To wrap up this fairytale day in the most perfect way … the shot Kimmie initially fell in love with all those years ago was one of those epic backlit rain photos. Would you believe – a sprinkle of rain arrived late in the evening, just for a few minutes – long enough to capture that magical rain photo!

Here’s a little preview of the day – enjoy!
