A couple of weeks ago I had the immense pleasure of being Bianca and Michael’s wedding photographer in Yamba. I’ve got a soft spot for Yamba because it reminds me of holidays I went on as a child to places like Woy Woy, Umina, Kiama and Merimbula. I love how some parts of Yamba have no kerb and guttering. The grass turns to sand and the sand drifts into the road. Kerbs are like having a tucked in shirt and tie. Yamba’s roads are like a loose tshirt hanging over a pair of wet board shorts. Every day is a holiday in Yamba.
It was holiday mode for the boys as they got ready for the wedding. There must have been 10 or a dozen surfboards stacked up near the front door of their apartment and the beers were flowing. Things got serious quickly though when one of the groomsmen discovered he had left his suit back at home on the Central Coast. Of course Yamba isn’t known for an array of fine couture so they couldn’t just go buy something. It was time for a pants swap and everything worked out nicely in the end.
Bianca and Michael had their ceremony on the headland beside the Yamba lighthouse and the reception at the Yamba surf club. They got ready for the wedding just around the corner so there was no need for bridal cars. We just walked everywhere. It was a superbly relaxed, laid back, beachside wedding in perfect weather. And a super attractive couple for great wedding photographs.
You can check out a bunch of images from their wedding on my Facebook page here. Here’s a peek at a few of their wedding photos.
There was a decent swell running on the wedding day and I didn’t want the bride and groom getting swamped so positioned them poolside well out of the way of the waves.
And then this happened ….
Just some damp feet. It was all good.
