Hello Sunflower


We harnessed the vibrance of the summer sunshine to capture a truly radiant shoot in the Hunter Botanical Gardens. What can I say about this one… it was amazing! We were so blessed to be working alongside some of the industry’s most incredible talent, such as Julia and Dan from Swoon Weddings and Abbey Love.

I didn’t know much about the Hunter Botanical Gardens until this shoot, let alone that Newcastle has Australia’s biggest cacti and succulent garden. It was only by chance that we stumbled upon this breathtaking site and were totally blown away. We were so surprised to see such an amazing array of cacti and succulents. They are given so much love by the wonderful volunteers of the gardens, which is not an easy task when the site spans 140 hectares in total!

Ali, our gorgeous model, walked bravely and barefooted amongst thorn and prickle and shone in all her bridal glory! And we were so grateful to the lovely ladies at Octopus’ Garden for supplying some rather spectacular florals … bright, fruity and totally perfect for a summer wedding! Enjoy the pics to follow!
