A love story for the ages! These two meet while Risa was learning English from none other than her tutor Simon! Despite being so far away from home these pair have made it work and just a few short years later decided to tie the knot and become husband and wife!

Risa and Simon were married at Saint Augustine’s Anglican Church, Merewether then on to their reception which was hosted at Noah’s by the beach. WE had such a fabulous day running around Newcastle going to many different locations to capture some stunning images for the pair. We were so lucky the rain held off!

These two had seen a post on my Instagram featuring the iconic Newcastle wedding location, Hickson street lookout and were keen to go there for some wedding photos. When we arrived on the day and as we walked down to the spot they both looked at me in surprise, just realising that this was, in fact, the same place they had been on their very first date all those years ago! They both hadn’t realised but it made this location extra special for them both! ⁠

The reception was tear-jerking with appearances, via video chat, from family and friends who couldn’t make the wedding (bloody covid).

It was such a privilege to be at this wedding with my whole team providing photo and video coverage and I will always have a special place in my heart for this wedding.

Much love,
