Damien & Belinda’s gippsland wedding began on the beach in Cowes Phillip Island, followed by a reception of approximately 120 guests at the Continental Hotel across the road. The bride wore an ivory dress, duchess style which was beautifully decorated. Her hair and makeup were done by Ally De La Rosa.
Damien and Belinda met at the Dorset Gardens nightclub. Damien proposed to Belinda after an argument over football which ended with Belinda in tears and Damien declaring his undying love and asking for her hand in marriage.
The couple’s new married life together begins in Queensland for their honeymoon.

Chris and Courtney were married on the 3rd March 2012. Due to the incredibly bad weather on that day they had to be a little flexible and changed the location of their ceremony. Despite the rain we still managed to capture some beautiful moments for them. Behind the camera taking the stills was a good friend of ours and great photographer from Bendigo, Cassie Johnson. I was taking a little bit of video for this wedding so between the two of us we had a great day with an awesome couple. This is their day in the words of the bride…
