When I met Craig and Sarah a few years ago I knew I was the one to shoot their beautiful Peppers Salt Resort Kingscliff wedding right away. I love these guys. They are fun, laid back and love a bit of vintage class. Northern NSW weddings are always beautiful. There’s an energy that permeates through the whole area that raises your vibration the minute you leave the hustle of the Gold Coast and enter the magical bubble that encapsulates the entire region. So I guess I was looking forward to it 🙂
Despite the warnings of rain and thunderstorms our spirits were high (probably as a result of aforementioned awesome energy field). The boys got ready at the resort while the ladies made their preparations in Pottsville (another gem of a place, visit there!) before being escorted by two stunning silver mocha Rolls Royce Silver Cloud cars to the ceremony back at the resort.
Sarah and Craig opted for a mix of both coastal and rural location photos so after the formalities we drove down to Cabarita headland which provided a gorgeous stormy setting (no sand though, yes!) with waves crashing against the rocks and beautiful grey skies. We followed that with some fun roadside pics (how could we not with those divine cars!) and cane field lushness before heading back to the elegant reception at Peppers ballroom. Sarah just loves peonies, so she had them feature in almost all her floral arrangements throughout the day, and weren’t they just stunning! Shout out to the most excellent Kate at Opium Wedding Flowers for her hard work sourcing and arranging some of the most beautiful flowers I have had the pleasure of photographing.
The night featured many things. Laughs, drinks, man-bonding, buffet deliciousness, weird finger print placement on the guest register and some killer dance floor moves. The rain finally set in, which was perfect timing (and we were incredibly lucky it held off that long) as the night ended with a quick night photo, and a kiss.
