This chilled-out couple of Byron locals created one amazing and super colourful wedding at one of my favourite venues, Harvest in the historic hinterland village of Newrybar.
Kate & Dion have been together for 6 years, after first crossing paths in Bali. It was Kate’s second night into a month-long trip with the girls and Dion had been there surfing for a few months already.
After seeing Dion twice already in one night, when she ran into him again inside a Kuta bar, Kate didn’t hesitate in walking straight over and striking up a conversation. She remembers being immediately attracted to Dion - he was happy, friendly and an all-round good guy.
From that very first encounter, Dion could sense that this girl had an energy that simply radiated happiness and positivity, and what followed was a whirlwind few days that would leave hearts racing.
But with Kiwi Dion on his way to Western Australia to take up a job in the mines and Kate living here in Byron working for Zephyr Horses, Dion was soon faced with a big decision. It didn’t take him long to take a chance on love and see just where this could go, and after a few weeks of daily video calls, he booked a one-way flight from Perth to land here in Byron, where he’s been by Kate’s side ever since.
On their wedding day, Kate arrived in style, pulling up to Harvest in May The EK. Married in the garden, Kate & Dion stood in front of an arbor exploding with colour – the stunning arrangement of cascading bougainvillea was created by Nikau Flower Bar - which totally set the scene for the laidback, relaxed and fun vibe Kate & Dion were after.
The sun was shining, the margaritas were flowing and I had a blast sharing Kate & Dion’s story through a ceremony that oozed emotions of all kinds. Feel all the love leaping from the photos captured by Jess from Wilde Visual
