Amanda and Ben

It was a great honour for me to be invited up to the NSW coast to film Amanda and Ben’s beautiful wedding. This couple first met on a beach, so it was only fitting they celebrated their union on the sand, even if the in-coming waves meant the bridal party had to shuffle a few metres away from the water half-way through the ceremony! I loved the interplay between Amanda and her 3 sisters (and niece), the gorgeous locations at Huskisson beach and Merribee homestead, and the attention to detail the couple gave every part of the day. One small example – the seastar/starfish ‘flowers’ that Ben and his groomsmen wore on their jackets. Plus there were many hilarious and emotional moments, as you’ll see in the video – particularly Amanda’s Irish wedding vows which she incorporated into her speech. I challenge anyone not to tear up at this moment!
