Byron Bay Hinterland Wedding


What can I say about Renee and Dan?
Every wedding is filled with love, but this wedding was somehow a little different.
You could feel happiness and love just oozing from every pore on every guest.

About half an hour from Byron Bay, nestled in the hills that surround the tiny town of Clunes, is a beautiful venue. Previously known as Suzanne's Hideaway, now called Byron Hinterland Villas, it is just spectacular.  I am not surprised at all that Brisbane couple Renee and Dan chose it to be the venue of their wedding.

Renee and Dan, as legend has it, first met when they worked together in a little supermarket as teenagers.  It was a pleasure to watch them get married and be their wedding photographer. Friends and family, who travelled from near and far to the gorgeous Byron Bay Hinterland venue were just so ecstatic that these two were finally getting married.

One of the highlights for me was Renee's grandmothers speech during the wedding ceremony.  This lady is a firecracker! She's so tiny and goodness knows how old she is, but she is full of life and adventure and just so damn inspiring!  The wedding guests loved her as much as I did and Renee looked at her with such love and pride; it was just adorable to witness.  One of the joys of being a wedding photographer!

Another absolutely beautiful part of the day was watching Renee and Dan's faces during the ceremony, nestled under a massive fig tree, lit by the golden afternoon light across the valley.  Truly, there was such love between the two of them, it was magical.

Renee and Dan were an absolute pleasure to photograph!  We walked about the gardens of Byron Hinterland Villas and took advantage of their luscious gardens and grounds to do some awesome wedding photography.  There were many laughs had with the bridal party as they posed for the wedding photographs, jokes shared... just a great afternoon between friends.

The reception was held in a beautifully decorated marquee in the grounds of Byron Hinterland Villas, not far at all from the ceremony site under the fig trees. The sounds of laughter could be heard ringing from the marquee all night as guests were enthralled by the very funny speeches as well as entertained by a band of monumental musical talent.

I was delighted to Dan and Renee's wedding photographer, in fact it was an honour for me.  They are such sweet, humble, beautiful people who are now the proud parents of a gorgeous baby girl.

Congratulations, love birds!
