Jen and Scott’s church wedding, clifftop photo shoot and Wyndham Torquay reception

Wyndham Torquay Jan Juc wedding

Jen and Scott booked me for their church wedding and Wyndham Torquay reception wedding a couple of years ago. I had met Jen while she was working as the hairdresser on another wedding Iwas photographing (check out her work on the beautiful Ashley here), and after going back and forth on the phone and via email over the last several months it was a pleasure to catch up with her and Scott again this weekend for their wedding down on the Surf Coast at Torquay.

We started off with the guys at a private house right in Torquay, in fact everything was close by which meant it was so easy for everyone to get around between locations. The girls had decided to get ready at the Wyndham Torquay, so with it’s amazing views out over the surf and a brilliant big bright room it meant for some great getting-ready shots for Jen and her beautiful bridesmaid sisters.

It really was a great family wedding, with Jen’s Uncle, Father Michael, conducting the ceremony and then on to the clifftops for their bridal shoot. Check out Jen and Scott dodging the waves in one of the beach shots – this was NOT a set-up novelty shot! I had to head for the safety of a large rock myself at one stage to avoid the incoming tide 🙂

Check out the pics below and read on below the post for some more about the day.

Jan Juc Beach Wedding Shoot

Wyndham Torquay

The whole bridal party did brilliantly to get around the beach and boardwalk along at Jan Juc there – I always like to see a brave bride rewarded for her effort, and Jen was such a trooper climbing stairs, sandhills and boardwalks to get the shots they wanted, I hope the finished product lives up to the effort they all put in.

Of course, then it was back to the Wyndham Torquay to party for the night. With lots of family gathered from across the country and the UK, it was great to see them having such a good time.

Thanks again to Jen and Scott for the opportunity – hope you enjoyed the day as much as I enjoyed working with you all.

Naomi and Dean’s beachside wedding at Wyndham Resort Torquay

Wyndham Resort Torquay

Wyndham Resort Torquay was the location for preparations, ceremony and reception for Naomi and Dean’s beautiful beachside wedding in February 2014.

Both Naomi and Dean got ready at the resort, and we almost had an “incident” when Naomi was giving me an early tour that morning. As we came down out of the lift, Naomi spotted Dean and the groomsmen also coming out of a lift across the entrance. So as to avoid being seen before the wedding, we did a quick turn and headed straight back into the safety of the lift. You can’t be too careful!

I loved how that little shot of perfume was caught perfectly by the light coming through the window. Which was the intention, of course!

Black and white really worked for a few of the shots in this set, and I really liked the detail on the breaking little wavelets as well as on Naomi and Dean.
