Well, first and foremost …. I apologize for the sheer amount of images displayed below.

But, can you blame me?

These two friggin’ rad love birds got hitched at the Samsonvale Hall and I’ve simply been dying to share the day ever since – better late than never, right?

These gorgeous creatures had one of the coolest, laid back weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of being a part of. From the guests, to the run-sheet – the whole day oozed … “who cares what happens, so long as we get married”. And that is the kind of day that I love to be a part of.

I haven’t added a whole heap of detail images below – because, well, to be honest …. their glowing faces are much more interesting. To see more of the day – you can pick up a copy of the latest Hello May Magazine and check out some further detail shots, info’ on where they got their gear, how they got hitched … all that jazz. But in the meantime, feel free to fall in love with Kristie & Luke.

The amazing wedding of Jess and Sam – complete with killer dance moves.

These two got hitched not long after a stack of rain; …. and some minor flooding. That, mixed with the heat and humidity, you’d thought would slow them down slightly. But, alas, no. Not even 30 degree heat (86F’ for all you yanks out there reading) at 10 o’clock at night could stop them or their guests from partying like it was 1999 and Prince was on the dance floor with them. Thankfully, the day rolled around and they had the most perfect weather, ever (even with the heat and flop sweat-inducing humidity) and nothing but blue skies and gorgeous sunshine prevailed for majority of the day. They got hitched on a property in Mooball, NSW not far from Byron Bay – and sorry future brides and grooms, it’s a private property (d’oh!). But what a stunning venue to get hitched — and lucky for me, they let me go 4×4′ing up the back of the property to take some killer shots of Jess and Sam being cute as hell.

Also, you can have a big read of all the amazing, finer details, styling and how it all came to be (including the stunning dress deets) over on Hello May if you’re so inclined – the link will be after the photos, so keep an eye out and be sure to go have a read – and even grab a copy of the mag’ in store, Australia wide and in most newsagents near you :-)
