Tweed Coast Wedding // Dave + Sarah

Tweed Coast Wedding Photography by Asher King

Dave + Sarah chose the Tweed Coast for their nuptials and took full advantage of the beauty the area is famous for. Both grew up as friends in Toowoomba and the general consensus from the guests was "it's about time these two finally got together"

One touch I liked was Sarahs father had a traditional Scottish blade that he and Sarah's mother used to cut their wedding cake, a family heirloom that Dave + Sarah used and were able to carry on the tradition by using it in their cutting ceremony.

Overall It was good times as usual when two party people get together.....AK

 
 

Dave + Vicky // Portsea Wedding

Portsea Wedding


This was my first time to Portsea and it reminded me a lot of home. A small coastal town with everything you need to unwind and soak in the beauty of where the ocean meets the bay. Dave and Vicky asked me to fly down to photograph their wedding and have a good time with their friends. The ceremony was as perfect as Autumn in Melbourne can get. The reception was held inside the Portsea Golf Club, it was full of laughs with friends they have both had for well over 3 decades, but it would be the after party back at their beach house that would really get everyone moving. The one thing i learnt from this wedding is that not everyone wants a photo shoot. Dave and Vicky were just keen to get the party started and weren't to fussed with a traditional shoot. That was more than fine with me and i enjoyed go back into journalistic mode and covering the night as the party kicked up a few notches. At lunch the next day it was quiet evident that the party wasn't going to stop in a hurry. Three days and many laughs later as everyone made their way back to Melbourne i hopped on a plane back to Coolangatta exhausted but thankful to Dave and Vicky for their hospitality and trusting me to capture their wedding and making me feel so welcome.....AK 

 
 

Chris + Koren // Gold Coast Hinterland Wedding

Gold Coast Hinterland Wedding


My first Tinderella wedding. Chris + Koren are proof that Tinder can lead to marriage and after meeting these two, active, fun loving people, it was always going to be a match. Rock climbing is a big part of their life and during the exchanging of the rings, they also tied themselves together to represent the strong ties that will stay with them during their marriage. Koren's father had recently passed and she was given away by her mother, a nice touch was an image of her father on her bouquet asking him to walk with her. Lots of emotion between Koren's family who were visibly missing her dad on such a special day. The laughs would carry everyone through day and Chris + Koren's happiness was infectious to evryone that was present.....AK

 
 

Ash + Leah // Byron Bay Elopement

Byron Bay Elopement


Trust, it's something I think of when I was asked to shoot Ash and Leah's elopement. Every wedding I shoot has one specific moment that will tug at my heartstrings and I find my viewfinder becomes blurry for a few seconds. Ash and Leah's day was full of these moments, two souls in love with each other from deep down in their hearts and I will always be thankful that I was the one trusted to capture what was one of my favourite days shooting thus far in my career.....AK
