Creating a look for your wedding is a chance to express yourself and make your wedding not only reflect you, but an artistic representation of yourselves. It’s a chance to make your wedding uniquely yours. Quick disclaimer before I continue: Floristry and wedding styling can be a big task in organising your wedding. I want to caveat this by saying most florists ARE worth it if you have the cash. When planning a wedding, one of your goals should be on making things as easy and simple as possible. (Canberra Events Management and Styling is my favorite provider for this by the way. They make sty ..read more

I’m going to throw an opinon. Maybe rattle some cages. Many vendors will think I’m stating the obvious. But I think this needs saying, to help Canberra’s couples get the most out of their big day. Planning our weddings, we spend months or years perfecting who we choose as our vendors. Who will make the cake, who will officiate the marriage, who will spend all day with us photographing everything? (Protip: Me ;) )  Will we get live music, or a DJ? Someone who does both? Which venue should you choose?   CBR Celebrant Pat Coelho running MC duties at The Boat House All too often ho ..read more

Whew! Your vows are something to prepare for, especially if you’re writing your own. Do not wing it. If I could give one bit of advice for this, it would be PREPARE AND PRACTICE. People who publicly speak regularly will find this easier than most, but that doesn't mean you can't nail it too. Some of the most obvious (an ..read more

As a wedding photographer in Canberra, I may be a bit biased. Canberra is a fantastic place to live, but also a fantastic place to tie the knot. Let’s explore the reasons I think Canberra (and surrounds) make an excellent option for your wedding.  1: Accessibility   Canberra is one of the most livable cities in the world. That means for your wedding day, getting from one place to another on your wedding day is going to be a cinch. This is so important for your wedding day I can’t overstate it enough. A wedding day is one of the fastest days of your life. Spending more time than need ..read more

2020 Threw our collective expectations of how weddings run (Or if we could even have them) off the rails. My bride and I had to postpone our own wedding, and even after that, we were constantly worried about all the limitations that may be imposed on us for our own safety, and how they might affect our planning. Having said that, there’s always opportunity to be found in times of change or adversity. This is no exception in planning your wedding! One of the best ways to have a wedding in my experience, is to keep them small and intimate, with the people you care most about, as opposed to large ..read more

4 places to spend and 4 places to save on your wedding

Hi everyone, Saving money on a wedding isn’t just about being austere and tight on the wallet. It’s also about getting the most out of your wedding for what you can manage. I’m a big advocate of being responsible when planning weddings. It’s all too easy to charge it to the credit card, but you’ll have to deal with that debt when you’re newly married and very few costs from the day are something you will have after the day. When my wife and I were planning our wedding, we had come off the back of buying our first home, and it was 2020 with the Covid pandemic in full swing. Safe to say: money ..read more
