An ELOPE LUXE micro wedding in the Byron Hinterland on Digital & Film!

Rebecca & Aaron married at The Orchard Estate in Clunes NSW, just outside of Byron Bay.

The energy all day was electric (and not just from the threatening thunderstorms), with tears of happiness and abundant love surrounding the couple.

The amazing ELOPE micro wedding experience amongst the macadamia orchards provided the most divine space for their little ceremony. An Intimate, elegant, & sophisticated way to celebrate.

Thank you Aaron & Rebecca for inviting us along to capture your special day through photographs and film. It was a joy.

The photograph exudes a vintage charm, likely taken on 35mm film, which adds a warm, grainy texture that's characteristic of film photography. The soft, natural lighting and the rustic orchard setting contribute to a timeless and intimate atmosphere, capturing a moment of closeness between the bride and groom amidst the tranquil beauty of the Byron Bay macadamia orchards. The use of film likely enhances the colors and light flares, giving the image an authentic and nostalgic feel

Tell me about your The Beginning!

We have grown up together and been friends our whole lives, since pre-primary school.

We kept in touch after high school to some degree, mostly exchanging messages for our birthdays, as we are born one day apart.

During our annual birthday check in, we got talking and realised we were both single.

We got together for a drink one night and then proceeded to be in denial about our feelings for the next few months until we finally made it official.

The rest is history.

When and where did you get engaged?

We were engaged on 28 August 2022. It was the first day of our Tasmanian Holiday last year. It was an impromptu last minute holiday that we decided to take, as our end of year holiday plans had fallen through.

As soon as we got to Hobart, we wanted to go to the top of Mount Wellington for the sunset and to hopefully see some snow. When we got there, we could see some snow in the distance so decided to go for a walk there. We reached the snow and had a little play and Aaron kept insisting that we should continue walking to find a nice rock to sit on and take in the view of Hobart, which is what we did.

We would reach Aaron’s rock of choice, and then he would decide it was not sufficient and suggest we move to a better rock. We finally got to THE ROCK and I was taking some photos and looking around. When I turned around, Aaron was on one knee. We both instantly started crying and he almost fell backwards off the rock (down a cliff) but it was otherwise perfect. Turns out he was trying to set up a sneaky camera at ‘the rock’ and I kept ruining the surprise.

Describe the style/theme of your Wedding Day?

Our mood board was 'romantic, simple and elegant'. In terms of styling, we are stuck to mostly black, white and neutrals, with the intention of it being timeless and minimalistic.

Do you have any tips for other couples planning their wedding?

Remember that your wedding is ultimately about getting married to the person you love and the small details don't really matter at the end of the day.
