Raes on Wategos Wedding

Raes on Wategos WeddingMary and Scott’s Raes on Wategos wedding was deeply intimate, romantic, and kinda saucy. I mean, how many couples would say their “I dos” in the bathtub? Mary and Scott did. And it rocked!

A big shout out to Ali Rollinson from Weddings by Ali for putting my name out there to Mary and Scott. with her warm personality and relaxing, yet fun demanour, Ali was perfect for Mary and Scott’s vision for a deeply intimate and dare I say, quirky ceremony. I absolutely love mixing things up and doing things differently. And Mary and Scott certainly didn’t disappoint. I can’t quite remember how the bath idea came up. From memory I suggested to Mary that they have a pre ceremony bath ‘romantic type’ shoot in the bath. And from there the idea just evolved with Mary, a few days before their ceremony, suggesting they say their “I dos” in the bath. And it’s amazing how far a little bit of bubble bath can go.

There were tears shed, lots of laughter to be had, and perhaps a few nervous giggles. I wouldn’t change anything about Mary and Scott’s ceremony. It was very unique, did I mention deeply intimate and amazingly picturesque with the stunning architecture at Raes. A big high five to Mary and Scott!

Another shout out goes to Ava Belle for doing a kickass job with Mary’s hair and makeup. I worked with Ava on a recent wedding at a Deux Belettes wedding and every time the results are phenomenal.

Looking back, it’s amazing to think how fortunate we were to be able to do our little post ceremony shoot at Wategos. Or even get in to Byron Bay for that matter). The following day a hurricane rolled in and flooded Byron Bay. You can see the skies looking pretty ominous (yet eerily beautiful) in the pics at the end of this gallery. It certainly gives these images a whole another depth of meaning.

Thanks for having me as your photogpraher Mary and Scott and for not being too shy about giving something different and deeply personal a go. It was the prefect combination of pure magic and bliss!
