As we arrived to The Horizons in Byron we were in awe by our surroundings. Sitting atop a hill ,Horizons looked out east over the rolling plains down to the world famous Byron Bay. We were greeted at the door by the managing director and shown around the establishment, this place was truely something special. Before long we bumped into Shayna in the lounge room, as the make up artist was applying the finishing touches. After a short chat Shayna moved along to get her hair done, the clock was ticking.. Jimmy and I moved around to scout more of the location, finding spots to shoot the wedding dress and rings. It wouldn’t be hard here..
Soon enough Hayden was back, along with a trickle of wedding guests slowly turning up. We were in the master bedroom shooting Shayna putting on her dress and making the finishing touches with the helping hand of her mother and sister, while everyone starting to congregate around the ceremony area, just next door. The time was near! Once Shayna was ready we took a few beautiful bridal portraits just before we headed next door ahead of her to await her arrival. The music started and everyone stood up in anticipation, slowly Shayna walked around the corner in sync with the soft music.. Hayden couldn’t take his eyes off her. Slowly, step by step Shayna made her way to the alter towards her husband to be, in the most beautiful picturesque environment a woman could ever hope for. A dream moment never to be forgotten..
After the ceremony we moved everyone over to a rather large open grassy area looking out over the surrounding landscapes for some group shots, before we took Hayden, Shayna and the kids for a walk through to rolling meadows for some couple and family photos. Such a beautiful kind hearted family, who truly seem happy with the lives they’ve created for themselves. Once we were finished down in the valley we walked back up to the venue. the celebrations were well and truely underway, the champagne was flowing and the tapas were incredible. Friends and family alike brought together, reunited once more on this momentous occasion. By love.
Before long the first dance began, a passionate performance by the couple, emitting their true love for one another. With speeches to follow and a little bit of house keeping, more drinks were served before we heard the Magic Bus coming up the driveway. This was a sign the day was drawing to an end, this was the party bus to take everyone back to byron. Before it did though we took the opportunity to take a few fun shots of the family inside, so much cooler, so much fun! Once everyone said their goodbyes, before long the bus was en route back to byron. Leaving just the immediate close family and friends behind. Time to get ready for dinner! Setup in the lounge room was a beautiful array of tables and chairs ready to take the celebrations on into the night. This is where we took our final family photos around the table and we left this amazing family to enjoy the rest of their special day. From start to finish the day ran incredibly smoothly without any stress, just good vibes all round.
