Mel and Chris embarked on a massive road trip across Australia and travelled over 5000km to Broome to tie the knot. Having never been to Broome before they somehow knew Cable Beach would be the perfect location for their intimate beach wedding. This gorgeous couple braved the midday heat and glary sun and exchanged their vows at high tide, with the Indian Ocean lapping at their feet. For their portrait session we waited until the afternoon, when the light was soft and beautiful at Gantheaume Point and Riddell Beach

The day was relaxed and absolutely lovely – just like Mel and Chris. I really do have the best job in the world! Photographing beautiful people in love on the most perfect beach with palm trees and all – oh yes please!
