Alison and Tyson chose Lucinda May Photography to capture the moments of their wedding day.

Alison says, “We met at our friends 16th birthday! And got married on our 8 year anniversary!”

Of their photographer, Alison remarks, “Lucinda May Photography style looks so natural and beautiful, she finds great lighting for when the capturing happens. Having our engagement shoot (included in the wedding package) really helped to know what to expect and helped us be more natural for on the wedding day. We just felt so comfortable around Lucinda, it felt like she wasn’t following us and Tyson & I were just spending time together before we joined the celebration with our guests.”

Much of the decor was made by the bride and groom who note, “We loved the handmade props & decorations, made it more personal for us and everyone who attended. We enjoyed making and collecting them in the lead up to the wedding and was so special to see it all being put into place.” Everything from the signage, the lawn games, to the centrepieces and ceremony arbor was made by the couple.

Of the first dance, Alison remembers, ” We danced to ‘If I ain’t got you’ by Alicia Keys. It was very special to us. We took on some dancing lessons to help us on our way as we were terrible dancers! We had so much fun dancing our routine, the twirling and dip/kiss were the highlights.”
