This day stays with me.

Apart from on the phone and e-mail, I only just met Seb & Kristy the day before, for 10 minutes, while I was driving scouting locations just up north of Noosa. An area that I had never been to before. But the 10 minutes was enough to connect – and then they were off inside the church in Pomona for the rehearsal. I had the feeling that I was in the right place and in the right time.

Maybe there were echoes with parts of my own life. The moving to a new place in the country from the city to set up a life. I understood and loved what they were doing – they had space, trees and pigs. They had farm books, dogs, adventure and connection. I was totally drawn in.

I was not the only one. Friends and family on the wedding day were all involved, sharing and giving. Tears hung in my eyes at the sheer beauty of it all and still they live there. I thank Seb & Kristy, and Angela & Joe, and Sam & Maria, and Maria and Rob, and Tony and Santina, and Sam, and Christos & Loukia and all the rest of their family and friends – for a truly beautiful wedding and, as Pooh would say, a day full of wonderful.

@kristy your wedding dress is so amazing! Can you share which designer it is?
Thank you!

Hi Ashlee – I can answer for you. Kristy`s dress was by C Dinnigan. And I agree, Kristy looked stunning in it.

@Flora you can buy Collette Dinnigan at BHLDN. They have a VERY similar dress called the Rococo Gown, by Collette Dinnigan, right now.

oh my, I love this dress! Anyone know where to purchase Collette Dinnigan in the US?

justin. thank you just does not cut it. knowing the day was being captured by such a talented man made it that bit easier to just relax.. & what a gift that is. you captured all the moments we missed as the day flew by.. seb watching for me through the church window (i would never have known!), the kids playing on the lawn and in the pool room (made us feel happy they were having fun too). we also noticed the way you captured the essence of each individual. no one was rigid or posed because they all felt so comfortable in your presence. even the ‘impossible to capture’ connor stood still for a moment & allowed you to capture his gentle soul. i could go on forever but you get the drift.. we are grateful. seb & kristy.

Your ability to capture the soul of that day, the softness and tenderness, the emotion and love is incredible. I feel as though I can sense you through the photos and yet it doesn’t seem as though there could possibly be someone with camera anywhere in sight. Well done Justin!

everything, and I mean everything about this wedding is beautifully done. Love your style 🙂

i’m overflowing with superlatives. awesome, awesome work.

the image of them just after the ceremony outside the church is brilliant.

Such a gorgeous couple and wedding! Love her looking into his eyes! Love your style! Fantastic Work!!!

Tantissimi auguri ai neo-sposi!!! Le foto sono bellissime come bellissimo è vedervi tutti … un abbraccio da Amedeo, Cristina e Lucrezia.
