Castello di Monte Wedding | D + A by Amanda Custo

I think somewhere during the reception, sitting in a forest of flowers and foliage, my husband and I looked at each other, in complete awe, and thought "Is this really our wedding?"

It is impossible to describe the joy, excitement, happiness and sheer gratitude that we felt on our wedding day. Towards friends and family members that put in immeasurable amounts of hard work and dedication to turn our dream into a reality. And far surpassing even our wildest fantasies of our perfect wedding day.

Here are a just a handful of images (actually even these 150 pictures are just a handful, as Gosia and Rynali took over 2000 images!) that depict the day and capture the essence of what we felt. Thank you so much to the following colleagues that have become friends over the years of working together. We will never forget you as you were part of the beginning of our story together.

Lots of Love,
Amanda & Don

Cathedral Peak Wedding: Nicolette + Darren by Amanda Custo

Nicci and Darren's wedding was one of our favourites of last year! Although they are both very busy professionals and we only met them at their rehearsal cocktail party the evening before the wedding, we immediately felt a rapport with the couple and their awesome group of friends.

The surroundings (cue: the Sound of Music soundtrack) are mesmerising and any photographers' dream...not to mention such a gorgeous bride and dashing groom. We had the best time being flown into the mountains for their couple shoot (even though the windy conditions made the helicopter flight on the nerve-wrecking side...).

Thanks to Nicci and Darren for allowing us to share their gorgeous day!
