stef + col | feature film | byron bay

When we wrote Stef + Col a little thank-you card, we thanked them for being crazy. Good crazy. But crazy none-the-less. It definitely rubbed off on us when putting together their film.

But it’s really no surprise that their film turned out the way it did – it’s a reflection of Stef + Col and the amazing experience shared by everyone on that day.

Perched high in the hinterland of Byron Bay, guests assembled under an amazing bamboo forest. The ceremony was Stef + Col to a tee – heartfelt, hilarious.

There was confetti, there were smoke bombs, there was drinking and dancing. There was an experience we won’t soon forget.

It’s the little things where love truly lies.

Like most things in life, weddings have evolved with time.

There’s no rules anymore. It’s your day, and you can do whatever you want.

So if you feel like throwing a wedding festival in Bambra on the surf coast, then you can. And you should.

Meet the Maloneys. They’re truly one-of-a-kind. And they had a one-of-a-kind wedding – an event teeming with love, laughter and joy…a jumping castle too!

Large open spaces dotted with Belle Tents for guests to sleep in, colour as far as the eye could see, a whiskey bar, dance floor and more. It was a sight for the senses and for the soul.

Lyra the wonder dog – looking resplendent in her tu-tu – carried the rings to a beautifully heartfelt ceremony officiated by a friend.

Up the road a bit, we found a beautiful golden field which offered a few intimate moments for Caitlin and Johnny to share…but before too long, the party beckoned, and as the sun set over a delicious vegan feast, the dance floor exploded.

THIS, is what it’s all about.

kate + anthony | feature film | florence, italy

We’ve lost track of time. All we know is the sun is setting, the champagne is flowing, and we’re surrounded by terracotta tiles on a rooftop in Firenze, Italia.

We’re at the welcome drinks for Kate + Anthony’s wedding atop the Grand Hotel Cavour. Kate + AJ greet us with a warm embrace, thrust a glass of bubbles into our hand, all before we’ve had a chance to put our bags down. It’s a gesture that sets the tone for the next few days.

Cut from the same crazy cloth, Kate + AJ truly are wonderful people, and you couldn’t wipe the smile from their faces all weekend. It was such a treat to spend a few days with them.

If you google image search, ‘incredible wedding venues in the Tuscan hills’, we’re pretty sure a picture of an ivy covered Castle would pop up. And that’s exactly where our couple decided to tie the knot.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful outdoor ceremony and drinks in the gardens before being ushered into a truly breathtaking walled courtyard for the open air reception. It was pinch yourself stuff.

What a gift it was for us to share some time with Kate + AJ, to tell their story, in Florence, Italy. Grazie, guys. We had a blast.
