"To dear Lisa & Stephen,

We're just dropping you guys a quick line to thank you both so much for making our special day so wonderful and stress free. We are both so grateful for all you done to make a day possible. The service you both provide is of the highest and very professional. And as for the photo's my gosh, every single precious moment was captured. The photos were all so natural and warm. Considering everything was done via email and we met the day of the wedding, everything came together better than we could have ever imagined. You guys did everything, all we had to do was arrive.

Once again thank you so much for making our day so special and full of beautiful memories."

"Dear Lisa & Stephen
Many thanks for organising our special day - it was exactly what we had wished and hoped our private beach wedding would be. Everything was just perfect !

Coffs Harbour and the Aanuka Resort is a great location, Lionel is a wonderful man who put us at ease and everything was hassle free, so we could really enjoy the day.

The photographs are beautiful - we can't stop looking at them and our families and friends love the pictures - they can see how happy we were and what an amazing day we had.
Thank you for helping our dream to come true."

Warm regards
Eva & Kingsley




"Hi Lisa and Stephen

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our day perfect, relaxed and beautiful.

You made our day stress free as everything was organised to perfection all we had to do was turn up.

The photo's are gorgeous and everybody who has seen them has said they are beautiful.

We could not of planned a better day ourselves and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your perfection.

We have suggested you to everyone and anyone who is thinking of getting married, you guys are doing are wonderful job and thanks again for our lovely day."

Clynton and Danielle A




"Dear Stephen and Lisa,

We would like to thank you both for the fantastic job you did on our Wedding. We were after a very quiet and personal wedding, which is the reason why we chose your elopement package. Choosing your package meant that all we had to do was arrive in Coffs Harbour, meet with the celebrant to finalise details and then get married. So Simple and relaxing.

Everything went perfectly, the celebrant Lionel Goodacre was just fantastic, the weather was great and the photos you provided captured the moment perfectly. Our family and friends loved the photos and everyone has mentioned how happy we both looked. Our perfect day was made possible by the fact that yourselves and Lionel made us both feel special and the atmosphere was very relaxed.

We would highly recommend the elopement package to any other couple considering this option. Our experience was totally Internet based with all communication being conducted through e-mail. We couldn't be happier with the whole experience. We spent the rest of our week in Coffs and fell in love with the place.

Thank you once again."

Anthony & Claire



"Dear Lisa & Stephen,

Sorry it has taken me a little while to get back to you. We have been away for a few weeks on holidays.

We had such a fun day. You both do a wonderful job planning everything and making it so easy and stress free for couples to go away and get married. We have recommended you guys to everyone down here on the Central Coast and after they have seen the photos they are really considering doing it too.

It was so wonderful, special and unique to just have our day with the two of us and our two children. The girls enjoyed themselves and tell everyone they see that "Mum & Dad got married when we where on holidays". Everyone thought it was a beautiful idea and were extremely happy for us.

Lionel, the celebrant, is such a lovely man and made the ceremony completely perfect.

Our photos are so great everyone can't believe how perfect they are. Everyone wants copies. It was really great to come home after such a wonderful time and getting such great photos to show our family and friends.

Thank you both so much!"

Jessica & Stephen

"Dear Lisa & Stephen,

Our wedding photos are truly beautiful. The best thing we ever decided to do was “elope”.

However our special little guest being our 9 month old daughter Isabelle helped make our day special.

Thank you so much for helping us with Isabelle, you made it easier to have her there. I think our favourite photo is one of the last ones taken. The one where we are both kneeling down on the sand with Isabelle on Marks knee. However it’s hard to say when they are all so beautiful.

We have that many 5X7 photos in frames around our home, it looks like a gallery.

In all my life I have never seen a photo of myself that I can honestly say I have liked, until now, and I truly felt the most beautiful and happiest I think I’ve ever been in my life, and you caught it. You both made us feel very comfortable.

Thank You very much for capturing our special day."

Kind Regards
Belinda, Mark & Isabelle
