Thalia Haven | Tasmania Elopement Photographer

A Tasmanian Elopement At Thalia Haven

Thalia Haven was on my bucket list of places to shoot a wedding at. I had seen an elopement there and thought it would be amazing to document a wedding and a few weeks later the next thing I knew I was there. All thanks to Gabbie from Event Avenue who is a local wedding planner.

This location did not disappoint. Ocean views, beautiful house, pockets of light and a perfect intimate elopement.

Neville did all the wedding planning, (with the help of Gabbie) This does not happen very often where the groom does all the work. When I was talking to Lisa she was pretty happy with Neville’s hard work and loved her special day.

Tasmania couples session | Launceston photographer

Tasmania couples session, Greens Beach

Marcus and Sarah might have been the easiest couple I have photographed. At the start I gave them my speech on how I want them to only have eyes and hands for each other. 

I always have a few prompts up my sleeve to make my couples loosen up and get some fun natural photos. I didn’t have to use any of these. As soon as I held my camera up they went for it. You can tell they are so in love.

The location was just perfect to get some movement in Sarah stunning hair and not to mention the colour in the rocks almost matching. I mean how can I not get excited about that.

Thank you Sarah and Marcus for giving me such awesome moments to capture. I am so excited for your wedding day 

I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.



Tasmanian Winter Wedding At Strathlynn | Tasmanian Wedding photographer

Tasmanian winter wedding.

These two love winter, so it only makes perfect sense to have a Tasmanian winter wedding.

I love the little touches of Disney princess and Claires shoes glitter when she walked and her dress was just gorgeous. Claire sure did look like a princess walking down the aisle to her prince. Their gentle energy made it such a breeze to work with them.

Claire and Shaun got married at Strathlynn . It may have been in the middle of winter but the love from these two filled the venue with warmth.

The beautiful flowers and backdrop were from Event Avenue

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

What if it might rain on your wedding day? | Tasmanian Wedding Photographer

What if it might rain on your wedding day?

You may or may not have taken into consideration while planning your wedding. What if it might rain? As a Tasmanian wedding photographer It does happen, but it doesn’t mean your day has to be ruined. Having a rain action plan in place can take the pressure off of something that is completely out of your control and use the rain to your advantage. Should the rain appear, take a deep breath and embrace the positives a rainy day can bring. Here are some tips so you can make your rain-day action plan now.

  • Congratulations! You’re getting the best light a bride could ask for.  Just about every photographer will be wishing for some cloud cover on your wedding day. It's consistent, soft, colours are beautiful, no shadows or squinty eyes. So rest assured you have the perfect light for the most gorgeous wedding shots.

  • Have the appropriate gear and have fun with it. I always bring a clear umbrella in the back of my car to every wedding. I also encourage you to invest in enough umbrellas for you and your wedding party, if you're worried about the rain. Clear umbrellas are a great choice because you won’t get weird colour cast or shadows on your face. Your photographer will love you for that. I mean those clear umbrellas are so cute. Whats even cuter would be some fun colourful gumboots in your wedding colours for your bridal party. Now that’s a photo I’d like to take. Be prepared your wedding dress is going to get messy. Also think about handing out umbrellas or blankets to your guests. You can get creative here too and decided if you want to incorporate your wedding colours.

  • If it looks like rain think about wearing your hair up. Updos work better in the rain, they stay in place and you don’t have to worry about your curls falling flat.

  • Discuss with your makeup artist ways your makeup can stand up to the weather. Water proof mascara for one.

  • Check with your venue to see what they can do if you’ve planned an outdoor ceremony or reception. Some venues can easily move everything inside. If you're doing more of DIY wedding consider renting a tent.

  • Sometimes being prepared to adjust your wedding day timeline can be a blessing. Just by moving your portrait session to a later time when there is a break in the weather. Half an hour can mean the difference between a downpour and cloudy skies with the sun popping through. Have an idea for your portrait session to be taken inside until you wait for the skies too clear.

  • Sometimes the weather is just miserable all day. If it's not possible to get any beautiful portraits inside anywhere. Go enjoy your time with your guests and discuss with your photographer to take pictures another day. I know I would be happy to do this.

  • I know you’ve heard the saying before. Its good luck if it rains on your wedding day. In some cultures this is true.

So it might rain on your wedding day but that doesn’t have to mean everything will be ruined. Embrace it! Don’t let the details you can’t control ruin your special day. You only get married once so take steps to make it the best day of your life, rain or no rain!

Here are a few pictures from a wedding I did recently and guess what? It rained. Adelle and Dean had their wedding at Entally Estate. I feel this venue has some great options if it rains on your wedding day.
