jake + lizzie

Alison CoskerComment

I met Jake and Lizzie through mutual friends. In fact, once upon a time, many (many, many) moons ago, I played clarinet in the concert band at Queechy High with Lizzie's biggest brother Dale. Lizzie was probably not even in kinder then. Fast forward, and she's a drop dead gorgeous bride, married to the lovely Jake (whose aunty I went to uni with, way back when I was a pre-service teacher). We have lots of connections. But boooooy, do they have a connection.

Jake and Lizzie (or Lizzie and Jake: debated ongoing) got engaged a while ago and when I found that out, I was like a puppy with toy. I HAD TO TAKE THEIR PICTURES. So we did a little pre-wedding shoot before they jetted off to Sydney to get hitched. Fast forward three weeks and they humoured me and my good mate (and partner in creative crime) Rich, and got dressed up in their wedding digs again and joined us in the Hollybank Forest, about twenty minutes from where we all live. 

It was a lovely lovely collaboration; Richie's wife (and my best pal) Amelia did Lizzie's hair and makeup. Richie and I had popped up to a local wholesale florist (Outside Flowers) and picked ourselves up some natives (omg billy buttons forever) and we fashioned a boutonniere for Jake and a beautiful crown for Lizzie. I'm rambling now. But I had SO much fun. Perfect light. Perfect couple (who make so many adorable and hilarious and loving and sincere and ridiculous faces at each other), gorgeous clothes. A dream. AND, what's more: Richie filmed it. See that HERE.

Ella and Lucas suuuure know how to throw a party. Their wedding at Sandridge Estate earlier this month was truly one the most heartfelt and lovely and hilarious weddings I've been to. I enjoyed the reception so much that half of the shots I took on their wedding day were taken at the reception. That never happens! What a fun party. Thank you Ella and Lucas. (it was also the first wedding I've been to that had prawn crackers! How good are prawn crackers?!)

John and Lenore pulled off one of the most seriously classy weddings I've ever seen. They're such a beautiful couple, their kids are super cute (and ridiculously well behaved), and the day was celebrated with a great bunch of people. Shene (extraordinarily run by Myf and her family team) is just crackerjack, and the Town Hall is so fancy (with incredible flair by the gang at Event Avenue). What a day! Thank you John and Lenore, you excellent babes.

I met Marian (and then Ria) nearly four years ago when we were both reppin' Kina Grannis really hard. I walked up to them in the line at Kina's show at the Sydney Opera House and they were holdin' hands and clearly just mega mega smitten with one another. Who'd have known that four years later, I'd be sneaking around after them at their wedding. They are a really special couple and I feel really privileged to have toddled up to Sydney to attend and shoot their wedding. (I cried all day).

I was also feeling pretty lucky to work along side the magnificently clever and charming Brooke and Bree from Light Noise Films. They put together such a whirlwind-y and gorgeous film from Ria and Marian's special day.

Marnie and Phil got married at Meander Dam and then onto the Tasmanian Conservatory of Food and Wine at Parramatta Creek. It was a blast and we were gifted with pretty excellent light in the evening. They are such a sweet couple who are clearly pretty smitten with one another. Thanks Marnie and Phil!

We trekked to the Central Highlands for this and I'm so glad we did. This is a gorgeous little family and they love each other to bits. They also look like they're straight out of a Country Road catalogue, so... I was happy.

I knew when I shot Sam and Leah's engagement photos last year that their wedding would be easy. Of course, standing up all day is not easy, but they love each other to bits and they're really damn attractive. What's not to love? Thank you Sam and Leah for letting me capture your day. (Thank you also for choosing a venue that has the boys and girls getting ready super close together!) (thus the blendedness of the story before the ceremony).
