Crustaceans on the Wharf | Darwin | Wedding | Sandy & Ben

This wedding was so special. I flew from Sydney to Darwin to capture it and it was an unforgettable experience! 

Darwin sure is hot! And there’s not too much there either, but it was the perfect location for this wedding which had many guests fly from all over the country to experience “a once in a life – all in one place”, opportunity. With the ceremony set up in the Botanic Gardens and a location shoot that was shared between a backdrop of old African Mahogany’s and the coastline – The Black Reef. And finishing off with a celebration at Crustaceans on the Wharf that overlooked the Arafura Sea. We were not short on variety and gorgeousness, that’s for sure!!!

I met Sandy and Ben at their wedding for the first time and I felt like I was a part of their family. I felt so welcome and was surrounded by beautiful, kind people. It was lovely to photograph them!

This wedding was planned to perfection. Sandy was very meticulous with her details! From balloons, a parasol, family heirlooms, akubras, hay bails, rose petals, bunting, flower arrangements, family photographs and I am probably not listing them all, there was just so much prettiness to photograph and enjoy. 

It was such an experience and I’d do it again! Thanks Sandy and Ben for giving me such an opportunity. I wish you a very happy and bright future!

Look at all of those pretty details. Details add a special personal touch to your wedding day.


This was Sandy’s mother’s veil. This photograph was a special request.


This horse just so happened to pass by us at the location shoot and his owner said that we could use him. What are the chances? A white horse with a bride is magical!
