Newcastle Wedding Photography: Ben + Sara Jane

We had honor not too long ago of capturing Ben and Sara Jane's special day. With clouds looming on the horizon the day before we did our sun salutations and prayed it would show up for the big day.

We were pleasantly greeted by the sun on our drive up and arrived to a house in full morning prep swing with the lovely Sara Jane already rocking her dress looking like she was ready for the Met Ball.

We were promptly whisked away to our destination in plush comfort of a stretched hummer ready to rock that ceremony. 

The boys looked quite relaxed as I imagine they had a comparatively mellow morning smiling and joking among themselves. Ben unrecognizable to me as the last time I had seen him he was sporting quite the beard.

With what seemingly was one of the quickest ceremonies I have every seen performed by the wonderfully entertaining and jolly Sue Cutts, the couple received their congratulatory hugs and kisses and the bridal party headed off to tear up the Newcastle surrounds with what can only be described as immense modelling prowess.

After doing their modelling thang we returned to the reception venue and let the festivities kick off as this crew were ready to party.

It was a wonderful day spent in the company of Ben and Sara Jane and their lovely friends and family. I had the pleasure of meeting Sara Jane's grandparents who have been together 60 plus year together despite her nan once being wooed by Nat King Cole himself... Unforgettable indeed and what a stellar role model by which to follow!!! I hope you enjoy these images as much as we did in making them. Have a lovely weekend.

Central Coast Engagement Shoot: Ben & Sara Jane

Wangi Wangi is not a place I have previously visited or heard of in all honestly but when Sara Jane asked if we could do her pre-wedding shoot there I was more than happy to say yes!

As someone who has his adventurous stats on max the thought of shooting somewhere new excites me. The added benefit is if it is somewhere special to the couple, they are often more comfortable and able to draw on familiar sense memories which add to the impact of images.

Ben is a towering gentle giant who exudes friendliness. Sara Jane is confident yet down to Earth and utterly lovely. They made for great company and tour guides as we explored their old stomping grounds and made these images.

Hopefully I managed to capture the love these two share and the beauty of this little gem that is Wangi Wangi
