It was a morning of pure wedding bliss with a friendship that will last a lifetime, I was so honored when Clare asked me to do the makeup for her special day, I was bursting with excitement! We spent the months leading up to her wedding discussing dress ideas and flower options over late night cups of teas and spontaneous trips to Sydney. A time in our life we had certainly been looking forward too and had most definitely been discussed! It was a bittersweet morning for me, as the lead up had been so exciting though I was offered an opportunity to head overseas to work on a shoot, wait for it... on the SAME day! So after her incredible morning I scooted off to the airport and waited anxiously to receive these captures from Emily Jane Photographer and see Clare and Ben's magical day come to life.



Love and salt was in the air as Clare and Ben prepared for the day they had been waiting for.  Clare was quite literally dancing around the room with excitement, as one by one they were all prettied up and off to get set in their gowns. There was endless laughter, lots of tears and huge smiles that beamed throughout, lighting up the bright little room set in the coastal town of Palm Beach. When the flowers arrived, the excitement kicked in and it was game on, the room was infused with scent of native flowers and sweet smelling roses that splashed colours of pink and champagne which perfectly complimented the morning mood. I could sit here all day and speak of this incredible bride and how magical our morning was, but I will let the stunning captures from Emily Jane Photographer speak for themselves. 

To Clare - Thank you for choosing me to be apart of your special day. The love our little Mooney family has for you and Ben is beyond words. We can't wait for a million more years of memories with you both. Love B + D + M. xx
