Florent Vidal Photography

 

A little bit about Florent...

When I tell people that I am a photographer, there’s always an interest how I got into it.

To be honest I have done nothing else but photography! It started when I was 14 years old when I discovered the art of photography. I studied Photography in France and worked in Paris when I was 20 as a freelance photographer for travel magazines.

One day the editor of the travel magazine I worked for asked me if I could photograph her wedding the same way I photographed the people in my travel photos: very photojournalistic and ‘in the moment’.

This experience completely opened my eyes and changed the way I perceived wedding photography: wedding photos can be ‘real’ and at the same time, creative.

15 years ago I moved to Australia for love when I met an Australian girl in Paris. I continued my career in Australia, and since then I have photographed over 500 weddings everywhere around Australia, and in 4 continents (missing Africa!).

Your wedding day is about you, and the lifetime commitment you’re making! I'd like you to look at your wedding photographs, and still find new memories as the years pass.

Sealed By Steph

 

"Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

My name is Steph and I am a young celebrant who is passionate about creating the best ceremony for your special occasion. Whether you have a specific idea in mind or you have no idea where to start, let me take the stress out of the ceremony planning – I’m here to guide you every step of the way.

Jaya Bargwanna Civil Celebrant

 

Hi – I’m Jaya, I'M A NEWCASTLE / HUNTER VALLEY / PORT STEPHENS BASED CELEBRANT WHO IS READY TO PUT TOGETHER THE CEREMONY OF YOUR DREAMS! SO, ABOUT ME - I’m fun, playful and love everything about love. My Mum would describe me as organised, lively and a bit of a dork, although I strongly deny the dork part.

FIVE QUICK FACTS:

  1. My proudest moment (ok, maybe not proudest) was skateboarding down bar beach carpark, in stilettos. 
  2. my little bro is a giant and everyone (including my husband) thinks that i'm the younger sibling
  3. I'm a registered / practising pharmacist, a licensed surf coach and an authorised celebrant (duH!)
  4. I always have cold feet (in a literal sense)
  5. I cannot tolerate chilli or spice, which is quite ironic considering my dad was born in india.

In the six months prior to becoming a marriage celebrant, I attended 4 weddings and a funeral (no joke!) and celebrated the birth of my baby girl. These celebrations of life and love made me realise that a celebrant can MAKE YOUR CEREMONY! i LOVE love, in every way, shape and form. so, if you're wondering, that is why i became a celebrant.

Fiona Hall Marriage  Celebrant

 

 

Hi, I’m Fiona and I live on beautiful Dora Creek, Lake Macquarie. I have a background in education, event management, lots of community activities, was a singer in a band in my younger years and am very comfortable behind a microphone. I love interacting with people of all ages and value the richness that celebrations and rites of passage bring to our lives. I have been professionally trained through one of the most respected training colleges in Australia and am a member of the Civil Celebrations Network and the Australian Federation of Civil Celebrants. I am registered as a Marriage Celebrant with the Attorney General’s Department and I have all necessary insurances. I normally perform ceremonies in The Hunter, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Northern Sydney, but can travel for you.

These are traits that I think make a great celebrant: -  you can relate to them comfortably -  they have the maturity to guide you through the essential elements of a ceremony. -  someone who can create a unique, personal and meaningful celebration.

I always say age is a state of mind and I’m lucky that my family and friends all tell me I’m pretty open-minded, a lot of fun, progressive and probably above all, easy to talk to and a good listener! Please check out my service guarantee to you and areas of interest on the website including my testimonials and handy hints to ensure you think of everything! Contact me and we can start planning this exciting adventure today. I wish you all the best for your upcoming celebration and perhaps I might be honoured enough to be a part of it.

In Between Dreams

 

I am an experienced celebrant with a very relaxed and easy style.  Bespoke ceremonies are my speciality and I love allowing couples the opportunity to share their very own unique story, while encompassing a sense of fun, calmness and of course professionalism. Connection is what I find one of the most important parts of being a good celebrant and I pride myself in making sure that a ceremony resonates with not only the couple, but their guests as well, and all those warm fuzzy feels are totally met!  

My advice to all my couple is simply this...Don't stress, chillax and enjoy every minute of your special day, and the days leading up to it...drink it all in and savour it...It will be a memory that you will have for a lifetime! This year I reached the milestone of 10 years as a celebrant which has been such an exciting time for me. Becoming a celebrant was the best decision I have ever made, so if there is such a thing as a calling, I believe this is mine...and this is what I truly was meant to be.

Having travelled across the globe experiencing the excitement of tracking the big 5 across the African Savannah, the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, the diversity of the USA and all things Disney as well as the history and traditions of Europe, I draw on these experiences to make your ceremony as unique as you are!"

Styling and Goods Hire

Signs by Brianna

 


What else do you do when you find yourself `on maternity leave and made redundant? Well, first you grab yourself a bottle of wine and decide how to spend your severance package, second you attempt to adjust to life with a baby and third, you re-establish your identity. A self-taught artist who spent hours scribbling and painting from a very young age, Brianna Jane had to do just that. She has spent many years experimenting with her creativity, studying visual arts, graphic design and interior design. Experimenting with many different art medias and styles. Now at 26 years old, she thinks that she may have just tapped into something. Re-establishing her identity meant being a mother, a partner and now (hopefully) a full-time artist. This past year she has accomplished more than she had hoped, evolving her artist 'brand', setting up shop both online and at market fairs, as well as being commissioned by customers to create special artworks for them. She dabbles in many different medias and styles and as far as having an artist 'style' goes, hers is VERSATILITY. The Brianna Jane site provides information about upcoming shows, exhibitions and images of past projects, as well as information about my artistic journey from dream to realization.

In 2019 I moved to Newcastle and established my own business, Luscious Me. As I have a passion for food and art, I have completed various other training including a piped butter cream floral decoration course in Korea. I am confident I have the skills to help produce the perfect wedding cake to meet any requirements.
