Lydia & David

Lydia & David had such a cool & unique wedding that was filled with so much love.....The venue was transformed, the speeches were heartfelt & the dance floor was EPIC!

The Yacht Club became a tropical paradise with plants dotted about, ferns on the tables & stretching down the aisle & even a DIY ceremony backdrop. A flag that Lydia & David had made was hoisted onto the flagpole & the threat of rain & some blustery winds brought the ceremony inside. Their friend & celebrant, Shine, created a beautiful ceremony & everyone together.

Following family photos out on the beach, we visited Lydia & David's fur babies in their tropical rainforest of a garden & then hit the beach to chase & revel in the autumn sunlight. Our last stop was the breakwater where they got engaged, before returning to the reception.

I often cry at weddings & this was no exception! The speeches were both hilarious & moving. There were plenty of roaring laughs followed by streaming tears....such an emotional rollercoaster!

When I first met Lydia & David, they told me that the dance floor would be filled & it was an important part of their day, & boy, were they not wrong! The first dance finished, Tim hit the decks & the dance floor went off! It was such a mega party of souls & love, thanks for having me on for the ride.
