Em and Tash met here in the beautiful Kimberley, both teachers who happened to cross paths whilst working at a remote school in Bidyadanga, about a 2 hour drive south of Broome. The couple wanted to create a relaxed and fun weekend for family and friends, many who had not yet met so it was important to them both that the weekend be full of celebrations and get-togethers. Making the most of Broome’s stunning Cable Beach was a must for these two and it was clear from the minute I started capturing their special day that this loved-up couple were keen to tie the knot to signify their commitment.

 

The practice of not seeing each other until the ceremony is a tradition that many couples are still sticking to, while others opt for a ‘first look’ for reasons that range from easing nerves to allowing for more time for photos. For Em and Tash their first look was something really important as it allowed them to not only ease their nerves on the day, but also spend some time together pre-ceremony. On top of that, it meant that they were both able to walk down the aisle.

Another small detail that made a big impact was the ring Em had received as a gift from her parents. It was her late grandmother’s engagement ring. After her passing nearly 2 years ago the ring was restored and gifted to Em just before her wedding day.

 

The couples’ wedding advice for others tying the knot is to do the things that you and your guests will really love and just forget the things that don’t feel important to you. Oh and having a great band and food truck offering delicious kebabs at your reception really helps, too!

Em and Tash’s Cable Beach wedding is one that I will remember for a long time. I loved everything about it.  Location, styling and people. Most of all, I loved the way you could sense the passion they have for each other. I call myself lucky to have been part of this special day.
