Linka + Matt | Forget-Me-Not Wedding

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer | Engagement-Elopement Photography-74.jpg

During a spring Byron Bay wedding more than a year ago now, a couple approached me for a quick photo beneath the majestic Fig Tree. I remember feeling this sense of excitement, anticipation resonating from them and trying to discretely see if an engagement ring was being worn. 

Just weeks later, an enquiry came through from this same couple. Linka and Matt, who having just returned from a holiday abroad, had returned engaged. I was over the moon and as I spoke to Linka over the phone, I kept on saying “I just knew something was coming!”

Fast-forward to summer 2018. Held at Forget-Me-Not, Bangalow, this was not only a stunning wedding venue but one that held extra special meaning for Linka, who had spent many a year as a child swimming in the pond, and running the hills. 

Linka and Matt took time out before their ceremony, to see one another for the first time with a First Look. Time was also set aside to enjoy a drink with their family beforehand. Time to then enjoy mingling with their guests after the ceremony and time to sneak up to the top of the hill to watch their first sunset together, as husband and wife.

Time. It’s something of a premium on your wedding day, but this couple planned their wedding around the desire to enjoy as much of their day - with their people - as possible. In return, they had the time of their lives.

Linka and Matt, thank you so much for tapping me on the shoulder all those months ago now and introducing yourselves. And thank you for having me spend the best part of your day with you both - it really, really was an absolute pleasure.

This is your story xx
