Shar May and Brad met, she told me, after she ‘took a chance’ (love it!) and from that day on they’ve never looked back. So, when Brad romantically proposed in front of the Christmas light display in the Hunter Valley the wedding planning began!
Shar May and Brad are from Newcastle, New South Wales but when it came to planning their wedding they were quite certain they wanted something different and non-traditional. They could both agree that the location must an amazing destination with pretty scenery and they’d be surrounded by friends and family and have an amazing photographer (their words not mine! ;)).
So thats how we all found ourselves in Fiji!
We were delighted to be appointed by these love birds to shoot their big day, and the resulting wedding ticked all those boxes – a great crowd of friends and family, to-die-for tropical location and the Angelica Peady Phoptography team on hand to capture it all.
The Sheraton Resort Chapel which over looks the ocean provided a fabulous place for Brad and Shar May to tie the knot and the party then kicked on over to the Hard Rock Cafe, Denarau Island.
The island location was stunning, not quite as beautiful as the gorgeous bride – but together a handsome couple, blue skies, palm trees and the lapping South Pacific waters made for some great wedding images. We adopted our normal Angelica Peady wedding philosophy – a journalistic, quiet approach during the ceremony (to not detract from the intimate mood) and then when the formalities were over we headed outside for some formal and informal portraits. And lots of laughs and relaxed moments.
So, here’s the pictures! We know you’ll love them as much as we do.
Shar May and Brad… wow – awesome couple, awesome wedding – what more could we wish you than for an awesome life together! Enjoy.
