“We just wanted to say, thank you so, so much for our gorgeous piccies. We absolutely love them!! We had the most amazing day and you managed to capture that perfectly. Camilla and Alice were absolutely incredible. Not only are the images gorgeous, they made us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day. We both aren’t huge fans of getting our pictures taken, yet they made the experience fun and memorable”

Tell us a little about your day…
We woke up early on the day of the wedding, too excited to sleep. It was a beautiful summer morning at Hillview Homestead in the Currumbin Valley, where we’d spent the past few days with our wedding party. Apart from the groom not seeing the bride before the ceremony, we tried to steer away from the “traditional wedding” rituals and really make the day our own. We were lucky enough to have freedom to do this by having the wedding at Hillview and were organize and style the entire wedding ourselves. Everything about the wedding was very ‘us’, from the the ‘cake’ being a shot of our favourite tequila served to the guests during the speeches to our celebrant being Adsy’s sister. We wanted the wedding to be a casual celebration with our closest friends and family, and having it at Hillview Homestead really gave it that cocktail pool party feel. The stunning Currumbin hills were the perfect backdrop to our special day. It was everything we dreamed it would be. And more.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
The entire day – there wasn’t a moment our faces weren’t plastered with the biggest smiles (as you can see in the piccies and vid)

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Enjoy and try to soak in every moment – don’t sweat the small stuff. Take a moment to look out to the guests during the ceremony – it’s a pretty amazing feeling to have all of your most loved ones in one space purely for the two of you – plus the looks on their faces is pretty incredible.

“Yay!! These are all so so amazing, thank you so much. I don’t know how I am ever going to choose my favourites.
The team at Figtree were fantastic, so professional, friendly and enjoyable. They blended in with our guests so well that we didn’t notice that they were there for most of the day and night. They made us so relaxed and comfortable, which is visible in the stunning photos they took of our day. They have provided us with the most valuable memories of our day and we couldn’t be more thankful.”

Tell us a little about your day…
From the beginning, the main inspiration for our day was for it to be a relaxed celebration with all of our family and friends. We wanted to be comfortable throughout the entire day and to look and feel like ourselves. The reception felt like a big family dinner where we sat in amongst our guests sharing great food with plenty of drinks and laughter. We took a fairly minimal approach to styling, Osteria is already so stunning with their courtyard and fairy lights we felt white florals with lush green foliage complimented the space perfectly and was all we needed. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day, we were blessed with amazing weather and everything went to plan, the only disappointment was how quickly it was all over!

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
We had two clear highlights of our day. The first was seeing each other for the first time at the end of the aisle, it was so overwhelming at the time but looking back on it we felt like the only 2 people in the venue and couldn’t have been more excited. The second would be the entrance to our reception, seeing how fantastic it looked and also seeing all of our friends and family in the one room ready to party with us really got the excitement levels up!

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. It is your day and while Pinterest and Instagram are a great source of inspiration make sure to incorporate personal touches that are just you. It is these touches you will be proud of that will make your day special for years to come.

Rebecca + Sam // Bonville Golf Resort Wedding Photography, Coffs Harbour Wedding Photographer

Tell us a little about your day…
We were blessed with beautiful weather at the amazing rainforest setting at the Bonville Golf Resort. The girls and I arrived in my great grandfathers Rolls Royce, it was so special to see everyone’s excited faces as my father and stepfather walked me down the aisle. We had a gorgeous long table setting overlooking the golf course where we partied the night away. It was great to be able to share such a special day with our family and friends. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?

Our favourite part of the day was seeing all of our guests up on the dance floor having the best time.

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Our advice would be to just enjoy every moment. Take the time to sit back and enjoy everything that you have worked so hard to create. And most importantly, just have fun.

We would love to hear about your experience with Figtree Wedding Photography
