Bucklands Beach and The Rydge Hotel, Auckland

In front of the magnificent Bucklands Beach in Auckland, Zara and Rom have promised to love and cherish each other forever. It was on Valentines Eve 2015.

They first got married in France where Rom grew up but this second wedding was equally magical. Shiny sunny with a beautiful blue seas background were here to illuminate the bride and groom, their bridesmaids and groomsmen and their smiling guests.

The reception was held at The Rydge Hotel, which has a picturesque view on Auckland city. The bride and groom had planned lots of fun activities for their guests: a photo booth, a happy hour, a delicious dinner and an after party. It was one of the happiest weddings I attended. I wish a lot of love and fun to this amazing couple, Zara and Rom. Click here to see the mini clip video.

Australia’s North West Eco Beach Wedding Photojournalism by CloudFace Photography

Anna and Simon invited me to document their Wedding 100ks south of Broome in the north west of Australia. This is one of Australia’s most remote regions. It’s red desert country with more cattle than people – either way less than one head per square mile. The ocean is alive with marine life of all shapes and sizes, and on land the red sand warms the barefoot soles of winter’s feet. It’s an incredible place to get married. This was shot on May 25th, 2013 at Eco Beach Resort.

Beautiful Couple Get Hitched in Kangaroo Valley, Australia

I love these guys. It’s been about 4 months since their Wedding, and I still feel the warmth that they generate for each other and everyone that crosses their path. Ros is a nurse, Ryan a Butcher and they live in a small farm out the back of Kangaroo Valley which is on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. They’re simply incredibly genuine people as well as fun, cool and completely in love with each other. I hope these shots allow you to feel that little sparkle that makes the world go ’round, and if nothing else put a smile on your face.
