Brittany and Tom had planned on having a larger wedding, but like so many couples in 2020 they were forced to rethink their wedding plans (thanks COVID), ultimately deciding to elope to Broken Head in Northern New South Wales.
It is considered good luck to have rain on your wedding day and it rained during the day and in true Byron Bay style the heavens opens for Brittany and Tom’s ceremony. So, we’re sure they will have so much luck going into their married life. On the plus side the 90% cloud coverage created a natural “filter” with soft, flattering light for our photos.
After their ceremony, Brittany and Tom had decided to book a styled picnic from @klaras_house to enjoy together. James from @karuahmusic serenaded the newlyweds during their beachside picnic setting the mood for romantic break between the ceremony and photos.
James, who played melodies during the ceremony, kept the romantic mood going with his beautiful melodies playing softly on the breeze as we walked along the ‘Three Siters Track’ for the couple’s portraits. We love using the headland at the end of the track for our wedding portraits, the vistas are truly breathtaking. However, as this area is Aboriginal land we are unable to perform ceremonies here, but the portraits are always magical. While we didn’t get a Golden sunset, the soft light was spectacular on the beach and on the cliffs at the end of the ‘Three Sisters Track’.

Locals to the Gold Coast area Lauri and Levi were looking for a simple Byron Bay elopement with just immediate family and their gorgeous little girl, Millie. The couple chose Signature Collection with styled ceremony package, and selected our newest property, Bramblewood on the Tweed Coast as the venue for their laidback wedding.
Located in the Tweed Valley this venue gives couples spectacular ocean views from Coolangatta all the way to Surfers Paradise! The rolling hills of this quintessential farm venue meant photography, done by yours truly, meant that we had quite the adventure getting photos and videography to capture the beautiful afternoon sun. Martin and I jumped in the back of Lauri and Levi’s car and we followed Bramblewood owner Daniel through cow paddocks and up to the top of the ridge for some epic sunset portraits.
Lauri and Levi’s first date was a picnic at Brunsweck Heads. Levi organised the date, but it turns out he didn’t really organise very much forgetting to bring a rug or any food or drinks. Instead getting fish and chips and sitting on the grass to eat. The images from their wedding pay homage to their first date. Sitting on a log in a grassy field imagining their lives together.
Congratulations Lauri and Levi!
