When two top photographers get married you can bet your grandma on it being a jolly stylish affair… as was entirely the case here.

Graciosa Señor

Sydney snappers Amy and Milton Gan (miltongan.com) got hitched in August at Graciosa, Byron Bay – one of the amazing wedding venues on the books of our old friends Byron Bay Weddings. This 72-acre working farm overlooks the coastline and Bangalow Town also offers guests five bedrooms, allowing the main wedding party to chill there for as long as they want around the big day.

Amy and Milton chose to hold the ceremony under the natural bamboo archway, which boasts ludicrously scenic views across the surrounding hills. The reception was held in the farm’s barn, featuring stained glass windows and sliding panels that open to reveal more of the countryside around.

As well as this knockout venue, fellow photographer couple Dan O’Day and Andrea (danodayphotography.com.au) were on hand to capture it all. They took a brief turn in our booth (above) but, as with so many photographers, proved a little camera shy

Berry stylish

Super stylist Lisa Maddigan was on hand to make the reception barn look incredible, as well as our booth. Lisa created a glorious backdrop for us using local florals, berries and leaves over rustic timber beams. This tied the booth in with the rest of the venue decor perfectly and guests had a ball amidst the shrubbery!

Chairs, plates, tables and walls were adorned with a gorgeous array of floral arrangements, making the simple barn feel rustic but opulent all at the same time. And who doesn’t enjoy a bit of rustic opulence?

We wondered if making decorations that look good enough to eat might create problems for hungry guests? We didn’t spot any berry-nibblers though, so seems all was fine.

Tipple Table

One touch we loved that also went down a storm with guests was the whiskey station! A selection of tasty tipples were served in cut crystal tumblers, and guests were also given some plush seating options nearby for sipping and slouching after dinner.

Right, that’s enough splendid weddingy details. Let’s have a look at what the happy couple and their guests got up to in our leafy booth.

Still Got It

Amazeballs

You’re never too old to be smiley lovers, or totes amazeballs for that matter. Kudos to sir for a wondrous ‘tache too.

Masking It

Animal

Has the feel of a high-budget children’s theatre this one… multi-directional poses reveal the directing of two photographers here, and Amy has picked just the right animal mask to match her dress. Expert stuff.

Fellas

Cigars

You can’t really have a whiskey station without a few cigars on hand eh… These chaps clearly enjoying creating their own atmosphere.

Spoken For

Learning

Nobody likes having words put in their mouths but dapper rabbit here makes it look cool. Not many people attend weddings without some sort of congratulatory sentiment so it’s a fair guess.

Pooch Smooch

Smooch

The glasses are a fine touch here, adding a touch of realism to this otherwise bizarre, Lewis Carroll-meets-Disney scene. Still, everyone likes a bit of nose-rubbing.

All the Words

Word

Groom and chaps pull out all the stops for this one, thoroughly utilising our signage. ‘Woo’ man in the corner is most especially pulling that off.

HUGE thanks to Amy and Milton for bringing us in to be a part of this incredible day… for more wedding boothery, party ideas and so much more, have a gander at our Instagram, Facebook (UK or Australia) or Pinterest pages!
