OUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

CARLY TIA PHOTOGRAPHY

Available Byron Bay/Tasmania/New Zealand

My approach to wedding photography is relaxed and simple. I like to tell the story that’s already there in a photo-journalistic style. I love to capture real people and their natural emotions amidst all of the crazy celebration. My aim is to be somebody who is there hanging out at your wedding, taking the time to capture all of the important stuff and to create images that you will have for years to come. Above all, I want to create beautiful images to tell your story.

My name is Amelia Fullarton. I’m a wedding photographer based in Byron Bay. I’m attracted to moments that invoke emotion. I like to document weddings in a real and honest way and create images that will tell a story.

BECK ROCCHI

Available Byron Bay

Hello!!! With me, you will let your guard down. You will smile a whole-of-face smile. You will laugh from somewhere that’s true. You will set yourself free to come play with me. And when I’m done, you will be holding images of who you really are. I capture real moments because I’m a real person who inspires authenticity and joy.

CASSIE SULLIVAN

Available Tasmania

My favourite part of a wedding day is connecting with the people I’m photographing and telling the real story of the day. I’m an observer of moments and a feeler of emotions. I love to document how things are, your love, your home, the smallest change in your facial expressions, where you choose to have your wedding day, who you choose to surround yourself with. I love mood and warmth and intention. I think it’s important to truly feel and notice all those things in order to best tell your story. Having the honour of sharing a wedding day with my couples never really feels like work. It’s a privilege to be welcomed in to someone’s whole world and be trusted to capture all that that includes.

OUR VIDEOGRAPHERS

RABBIT AND THE BEAR

Available Byron Bay

Founded by Andrew and Jordyn, Rabbit and the Bear started off in Tynemouth, United Kingdom as a daydream and a sweet little sketch. The idea of a  company that would harness all of our creative assets under one brand and produce exceptional wedding films in the process.

Not a lot of people can say with their whole hearts that they wouldn’t change their job for the world. We are in the 1%, we are those people, we live and breathe weddings and think ourselves infinitely lucky that we get to share in the happiest day of your life.

The ‘oh-god-my-belly-hurts’ laughs, the tears, the hugs, the family, the friends, the kids, the pets, the quiet moments and the madness, the sun, the rain, the heat, the cold, the look, the kiss and the party. We love it all, every moment of every day and we love that we get to do it together.

YELLOW BULL

Available Byron Bay

Our passion is capturing beautiful and cinematic imagery, then cutting it together to tell a unique story and what story is more unique and beautiful than two people joining together for the rest of their lives? We have both been trained in the art of filmmaking and audio and bring our knowledge and creativity to each wedding we have the pleasure of filming. We are unobtrusive in our shooting manner and do our best to be a calming yet fun influence to you on your day.

Before your wedding day, we will take you on a coffee date where we can meet each other and get to know a bit about you and also to get a grasp of your style and what you might like. On the day we are on the ball and friendly but unobtrusive. We don’t think of your day as “just filming another wedding”, we think of it as creating something that you will watch and cherish for the rest of your life.

OUR CATERERS

FIG TREE

Available Byron Bay

FIG TREE RESTAURANT HAS LONG BEEN REGARDED AS THE BEST RESTAURANT IN BYRON BAY, BEING NAMED “BEST RESTAURANT” & “BEST WEDDING CATERER” BY THE RESTAURANT & CATERING ASSOCIATION YEAR AFTER YEAR.

Che Devlin (chef & owner of Fig Tree) is truly obsessed with food! He’s travelled the globe with little more than a map, a saucepan and a knife and fork! He has cooked in countries as diverse as Sri Lanka, Japan, Turkey, France, Scotland and Finland, and brings these global influences to your wedding day through a selection of individual dishes that will leave you and your guests raving about the food. The menus change to reflect the whims of nature – what is landing off the boats; what is picked from the Fig Tree’s garden and what is reared in the paddocks which surround Byron Bay.

The Fig Tree has crafted a selection of individual dishes that will leave your guests raving about your wedding food. These menus form an ideal place upon which to build a personalised wedding menu that reflects your taste, style & dietary requirements. Whether it is a cocktail canapé reception, a formal sit-down meal or even a more elaborate table banquet feast or tasting menu.

We have never eaten such delicious wedding food in our entire lives! The kitchen crew at Fig Tree Catering are to be commended on their delicious menu. The biggest hit of the wedding was the food and the quality (and to mention the quantity of the share platters!!), where not a single soul was left hungry. The meats were tender and the vegetables and sides just to die for!

THE WILDERNESS CHEF
