Destination Wedding Photography

Can someone say “Destination Wedding of the Year”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here at NKN Photography we’ve had the pleasure of photographing some pretty amazing weddings this year and we feel so very privileged.  All of our couples have been fabulous and we really do have the best job in the world :)

We wound up our October weddings with the wedding of Tara and Scott at Hamilton Island and I think OMG sums it up pretty nicely.

The couple, the friends, the location……….everything about this wedding was awesome.

After traveling to Hamilton Island a few days before the wedding,  we were well and truly prepared for the big day which finally arrived on Friday 26 October.

I seriously don’t think that these guys could have asked for better weather.  Someone was certainly watching over us and helping to make their day perfect!

After hearing from Tara to say she was running just a little over time with hair and makeup,  we decided to head off to the Whitsunday Apartments to get cracking on the detail shots before Tara arrived.  There is always something that goes a little off plan on wedding days so its good to be flexible and just go with the flow.

However you know that a wedding day is going to be fun when the couple are super easy going and you arrive at the bride’s getting ready location to find Dad stocking the esky with plenty of yummy alcoholic beverages :)

As photographers we see it all and wedding days are always so full of emotions whether it’s being super excited, nervous or full of tears. So it goes without saying that there was one little moment for Tara when the meaning of the day finally hit home….Tara isn’t big on tears but they certainly made themselves known when Tara was proof reading her vows.  Lucky Tina had some tissues on hand!

There were also plenty of tears from Scott as Tara made her way down the aisle to meet with her husband to be at One Tree Hill.

One Tree Hill is a pretty fabulous location for a ceremony and Tara and Scott shared this special occasion with their closest friends and family.  Oh……..and of course all the tourists who decided to pull up and have a little sticky beak :)

After Tara and Scott were announced as Mr and Mrs Phillips,  they decided to do something a little different and enjoy some beverages with their family and friends rather than rushing off for their location photos.  Such a great idea and certainly something to consider if your wedding day timeline allows for it.

So after a beverage or four (not us, the new Mr and Mrs),  we headed off with Tara and Scott to capture some amazing location photos.  We were truly spoilt for spots with One Tree Hill, the Hamilton Island Yacht club, Catseye Beach, the Marina……..but we saved the best for last.  Sunset photos from the 5th hole at the Hamilton Island Golf Club = O.M.G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We spent a good hour on the golf course being driven around in Golf Buggies (thanks Andrew!) and just having a really great time.  We even had Tara and Scott climbing up steep hills and over massive boulders. You guys rocked!

After an amazing day of watching Tara and Scott get married and taking some pretty awesome photos,  we got to watch the sun slowly set behind the Whitsunday Islands on this little island which we had all to ourselves.  It was such an amazing experience and we are truly thankful to Tara and Scott for allowing us to be there and share in what was one of the best wedding day experiences we’ve had.

Ok ok ok,  enough with the typing already and lets get to the photos.

Guys,  THANK YOU so much for everything and we hope that you love your photos.
