I met both Phil + Sabina over two years ago at one of my very first weddings on the Mid North Coast. When Sabina called to enquire if I had their date available, she mentioned Phil had been in the bridal party for a friends wedding I had photographed, and that their wedding would be at the Green Cathedral in Tiona, Forster. I had only ever attended a wedding at the Green Cathedral, I hadn't been lucky enough to snag a wedding here yet so I was pretty excited knowing how gorgeous this outdoor ceremony location is.
We arrived at Phil's to begin the getting ready and found some hammocks close by for the boys to relax or swing in... then a fun thought came to mind, it was a super hot day, for the groom to have a quick dip forced by his fellow groomsmen.
Meeting Sabina at the cabins at Tiona, she was super relaxed and supported by mutually relaxed bridesmaids. Sabina's Mum spent the morning doing the girls hair and makeup. The bouquets were supplied by Leanne @ Ellerslie Flowers.
A beautiful ceremony followed by location photos at a nearby beach - Elizabeth Bay and then onto the reception where Phil + Sabina had choreographed a great first dance as husband and wife. They share such a fun love and because of this everyone wanted to share a piece about the loving couple during speeches.
It was such a relaxed day with all of their friends helping out, I just feel sad it's all been and gone as I do with most weddings but I'm grateful I got to make all these wonderful memories for them and their families/friends!
Cheers to the newlyweds,
Mr + Mrs Hines !!!
