Married at Sandon Point Beach, Bulli

wedding combi Sydney
Amy Jane and Steve were married on the lawns above Sandon Point Beach, NSW. They were married on a beautiful Spring day with a strong southerly wind. The wind was strong enough to blow over their white wooden arbour during set out, but stayed firmly anchored into the lawn during their wedding ceremony. Access to Sandon Point Beach Park is from Blackall Street, Bulli NSW. It is an easy walk to the beach for the bride and groom and their guests. It also means that you get to enjoy the best parts of a beach wedding without having to tip the sand out your shoes at the end of the day.

Following the ceremony we chauffeured the bridal party to Sandon Point headland for their wedding photos. Their hero shots were taken on the headland. For something different their bridal party traversed the cliff face to access the rusty boat sheds. The rusty boat sheds are located at the bottom of the cliff and are regularly used by local photographers as a shoot location.

Their reception was held at the Harbour front restaurant. The harbour front restaurant is a spectacular reception venue that boasts 180 degree views of Belmore Basin, Wollongong NSW. Stand near the window with a drink in your hand and you will witness the fishing boats and sailing boats entering the harbour on dusk and during big seas you have front row seats to watch the waves crash over the break wall. As the sun begins to set over the Illawarra escarpment you can take family photos on the jetty. The jetty is used by local fishermen and swimmers and is located directly outside the entrance. It is a spectacular reception venue with a great food menu to match.

On the way to their reception we stopped at Wollongong lighthouse for photos. The council gate was open so we took the liberty to drive Rusty Kombi up onto the break wall. We parked him in front of the lighthouse and thanks to T-One Image Photography we managed to get some beautiful sunset photographs of the bridal party and our car.
It was an exciting day and a beautiful wedding. We all had fun. Amy’s father offers the following recommendation for bridal parties considering our wedding car service;

“You will have the most amazing time, a thoroughly professional and fun service. Recommended by the father of the bride.”

The Driftwood Shed

This is the first wedding Rusty and I have done at the Driftwood Shed, and yes we really want to go back! For those of you looking for a wedding venue that isn’t run of the mill, then the driftwood shed maybe the space for you. It’s character filled, charming, clever, simple yet interesting, vintage, rustic and eclectic. In fact there are so many more words that I could use to describe this venue because it really does have so much going on in the one space. The owners have spent years collecting and strategically placing all of their vintage treasures inside the old chicken shed (barn) and its grassy 5 acres surrounds. This place has a rocking cool vibe that will fit in perfectly with your rustic or bohemian theme. The location is beautiful and there is so much to look at an explore, your guests couldn’t possibly be bored. As you can see in the photos, Rusty really does look great at this venue.

Corey’s surprise 30th birthday

Corey grew up around air cooled VW’s, and according to Sarah (Corey’s wife), he has future plans to own a splitscreen bus of his own. Sarah also mentioned that Corey loved the original patina or rat rod style of buses similar to mine which made it easy for me get involved and assist Sarah to plan Corey’s surprise 30th birthday drive. The basic structure of the day involved a surprise pick up at their home followed by a 45 minute cruise through the picturesque Jervis Bay national park to make our destination which was Honeymoon Bay. On the way I offered Corey the opportunity to switch into the drivers seat. After a few early engine stalls and once he shrugged of his nerves Corey was confident enough to drive us all the way up to the picnic spot. The day was overcast and it had been raining during the morning which had left the ground wet and unsuitable to throw a picnic blanket. So what did we do? We set up Corey’s birthday lunch in the back of Rusty;)

Collaboration with Charlize the Label & Sea of Candi Bikini

We were lucky enough to collaborate with Charlize the label and Sea of Candi Bikini to launch their 2016 range of butterfly kaftans, bridal robes, kimonos and ladies swimwear. The weather was sunny and then really wet and then sunny again but that didn’t stop us from setting up some creative scenes and hunting down some beautiful photographs. Everyone agrees the shoot was lots of fun and an overwhelming success!

Children of the earth

AJ accompanied by his two best mates, kicked off their wedding day with an early morning surf at Bulli Beach. It was a picturesque morning with a great sunrise, offshore winds and perfect waves. Whilst AJ was surfing, Sammy was at home getting her hair and makeup done with her bridesmaids by her side. During this morning Sammy and AJ found a calm space to sit and opened an envelope containing a heartfelt letter written by the other. They read out the words aloud for all to hear. The words of each letter brought tears to their eyes. It was a simple gesture that got their emotions flowing and set the scene for their day ahead… It’s probably one of the coolest things I have witnessed on a wedding day. This hard hitting moment was beautifully captured by ripple films.

You may notice from the photos that the weather wasn’t the best, but it didn’t hinder the bride and grooms spirits. In fact it made the photos moody and the coastline look green and lush. Dressed in her expensive and beautiful Rosa Clara wedding dress Sammy made the most of the rain and kicked off her shoes and let her hair down. AJ and the bridal party followed her lead opting for bare feet over shoes and wet hair with a cheers between friends over a glass of champagne and a cold beer. The happiness was contagious and memorable and lives on in their photos and video. The locations chosen by the photographers were coastal, unique, interesting and easily accessed of Lawrence Hargrave Drive between Bald Hill lookout (Stanwell Tops), Coalcliff, Thirroul and Bulli.

Bohemian Wedding Style

Personally I think Jess and Lachy nailed the look of their wedding. Both Jess and Lachy are awesome people, young and free spirited. Their goal was to have an outdoors wedding ceremony with vintage bohemian style and flare. To do this Jess found her inspiration by searching through pinterest and particulary liked both Hello May and White Magazine pages. Jess ended up finding her perfect dress, a Demetrios brand strapless lace with an A line skirt at Sposabella Bridal in Fairy Meadow.

In regards to their hunt for a wedding location and according to Jess “it didn’t take long to find the perfect wedding location. When we saw Audley in real life and not just through the internet I knew it was the perfect place for us to get married”.
