Clare and Phil, Collingwood Children’s Farm

Clare and Phil’s wedding was very special indeed. When I first met them, they told me they wanted a relaxed outdoor wedding, a party for family and friends. In fact, the word “organic” was used.

Collingwood Children’s Farm was the location. The ceremony included some Dr. Suess and the speeches were real tear-jerkers.

We fed some lambs. They escaped. We chased them. Organic. Baby.

Freya - Wow, that is beautiful.
If i can make my own special day as anything near as emotive as these photos capture their day, i’ll be half way there.

paul - Thanks Freya! It was a very special day, glad you liked the images. :)

Sarah - OMG, so beautiful! Love the lambs!!

Lauren and Michael, Yarra Valley Lodge

I first photographed Lauren and Michael for a Beloved Session a while back on a rainy day.

Their wedding day at Yarra Valley Lodge was a sunnier affair. It featured an exceptionally long veil, bouquet tossing and some pretty crazy dance moves. Here’s their story…

Phoebe Wilson - Love it!

Kylie Stopp - Such a beautiful portrayal of a day filled with love, laughter and memories. You couldn’t ask for anything more.

Jac Shaw - Amazing guy, so beautiful xx

Maria and Steve, Brunswick

I do really enjoy my Beloved Sessions. These are sort of like engagement shoots – just not crap. They are cheese-free. Lactose intolerant, if you will.

Maria and Steve wanted to capture their time living in Brunswick before moving to Sweden for a while. It was a little bitter-sweet and there might even have been a little tear…

Gloria and Ricky, Brighton

It’s nice to be posting the rest of this awesome day! Gloria and Ricky had many interesting cultural aspects to their wedding. Being a Chinese and Cambodian wedding, I was expecting the tea ceremony. I wasn’t expecting the boys needing to adorn ladies underwear before entering the house- nice touch!

Their 350 guests had a ball and the end of the night was capped by a surprise appearance by Michael Jackson- amazing! Such a fun filled day- congrats guys.

Gloria Wong - Nice work! Thanks Paul!

Bernie Gallagher Amoo - Paul fab photos yet again. great work

Jaime Lee - Such beautiful photos xxxx

Jaime Lee - Can we order prints? I love the one of you on the dance floor!!!

Mini Dao - Congratulations to you and Ricky! You look stunning Gloria. Wishing you both all the best =] xo

Siew-Li and Bayden, Tatra, Mt. Dandenong

A first look at Siew-Li and Bayden’s wedding in Tatra Reception Mt. Dandenong.

Bayden’s a magician – so he demonstrated some card tricks for us in the morning. Siew-Li’s an avid icecream fan- hence the guys had an icecream cart.

They also pulled some funky dance moves. More to follow, watch this space….

Laura and Brett, Lorne Wedding by the Sea

Just a quick sneak peek at Laura and Brett’s wedding by the sea in Lorne last week.

There were high-winds early in the day but that didn’t phase this bridal party. I was introduced to the game of Finska -it involves throwing pieces of wood and arguing with your groomsmen about the rules. I also learned that Laura can pick things up with her toes, which is useful, I suppose.

The guys did a “first look” before the ceremony which was a particularly emotional moment. More photos to follow, watch this space!

Esmie Jimmy - The wedding looks so perfect. Great Photo’s Paul.

Elena and Gaetan, Vanuatu Wedding Awesomeness

Photographers, like parents, aren’t meant to have favorites. This one though is a little close to my heart.

I met Elena and Gaetan when photographing their engagement photos a while back. Below is the story of their wedding day as I saw it, both sights and sounds. Would love to hear what y’all think of it.

Note, if the video is streaming too slow (for those living in Vanuatu!) just turn the “HD” off.;).

Wendy Taleo - Paul, I love this version of Elena and Gaeten’s wedding….the sounds bring it to life although I’m sorry not to have photos of Elena’s family that were only at the service. I think this wedding has given a full scope of challenges for a photographer from dark skin, bright sunlight to fireworks! Fantastic results. I’d also like to see a photo spread so that as an observer we can see the events of the day as they unfolded.

Ricky Lee - Loved it! Awesome work, thank you Paul McGinty Photography.

Samantha Laloyer - All i can say is “WOW!!” Awesome job Paul! Watching this video made me re-live Ellie & Gaetan’s fabulous day. You have given them something that will always remind them of the day they made that commitment to walk through life together and us being fortunate to share that day with them.

Elena Fontaine - LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thank you Paul McGinty Photography xoxo

Trish McAllister - OMG I don’t even know the couple and I’m sitting here with a grin & a tear. Outstanding work Paul, simply outstanding x

Savi Aru - Love,love,love … Thankyou Paul McGinty Photography..Elena Fontaine so worth it. Beautiful memories :-)

Vaheidi Mermer - LOVE it Eli..Mi harem speech blong my Aunty Savi Aru, it’s really nice ! Congrats to both of u again !

Stephanie and Fabrizio, Canberra

A first look at the rather awesome Stephanie and Fabrizio from last week in Canberra.

This was an exciting mix of Greek and Italian wedding traditions and a good excuse to rev-up a retro Fiat or three. Heaps of fun.

Can’t wait to share the rest – watch this space!

Kristen and Lee, Collingwood Children’s Farm

Delighted to be sharing the rest of the images from this rather lovely wedding. They say never to work with animals and children- those rules had to be broken for Kristen and Lee.

Despite several showers there was no deterring this couple from feeding animals as per plan. And feed them they did. Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Jacqueline McGlynn - Absolutely stunning…so natural…I don’t know this couple but it’s obvious they are mad about each other.looked like a great day

Biljana Cvejanovic - SAVRSENO,SUPER SA SRECOM,SVE NAJBOLJE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
