Nine of my favourite shots from 2015. A busy, vibrant and wonderful year.

We celebrated others engagements and weddings, had a new little addition Rusty arrive, celebrated Todd turning thirty, honeymooned, travelled to Europe with the Stokes family and road travelled north. But most importantly, we got married. We started our lives as a new family, together. The two of us. Surrounded by all our favourite people we said our 'I do's' in what really was the most perfect day. I can't wait to keep building this beautiful life together.

A spirited little red dog entered our world and we called him Rusty.

A beautiful spot we discovered just down from our honeymoon cabin in Walpole. 

Todd's thirtieth birthday. Friends and family at Little Creatures and a surprise Bruce Springsteen cake with sparklers.

Beautiful blue skies in Venice.

Our wedding day - 14.11.15.

We decided to stay down south for our honeymoon rather than venture to another country.
Turns out, a wicked decision.

A lot of our family and friends stayed for a few extra nights after the wedding - a big part of why we wanted a wedding down south. It was so nice to be able to continue catching up with people and celebrating. The day after the wedding we had a lunch at Eagle Bay Brewery and then finished the night off on the roof top of the apartment a group of our friends were staying in. The night after the wedding was almost as much fun as the wedding. Retelling stories and reliving moments.

 Our little cabin was off Wildwood Rd and the deck opened out over a beautiful valley. It was the perfect little place for us to escape and still be close to town. I remember the morning we woke up to a huge herd of sheep walking past our deck.
We opened cards and presents on the balcony with a cup of tea.
We had a beautiful lunch with Mum, Dad, Kevin and Michelle at Arimia, coffee with Brodie and Kav at The Cure, game of kubb with the Bradburns at Injidup and checking out the 'fizz' at champagne pools at sunset.

We ventured down to Walpole after everyone had packed up and headed home. Nice to hit the road and head further south. Todd had booked a cabin in this secluded part of the forrest quite close to Circular Pool. Once we'd put our stuff inside we went for a walk down to the river's edge. The bush opened out to this beautiful rock pool. It as so nice to stop, breathe and watch the changing light.
The next morning we packed up a little basket with a blanket, coffee, jam toast, bananas, cherries and headed down to the same spot.

That day we went and had a look at Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks. Todd had never been and I had such fond memories of them as a kid. It was a really windy and cool day but still spectacular none the less. We had the most beautiful dinner at a restaurant called Salt and Pepper, looking out over the trees and watching the sky change colour. You always know you're on holidays when you have time to watch the sky change.

Brodie had organised for our wedding present to be a 'float'. Amazing experience in a pod filled with 500kg of epsom salts. You literally float in what is described as sensory deprivation. No sound, no light and the water heated to your body temperature.

We stayed at a bed and breakfast a little way out of Denmark, up the hill. It was really lovely being up so high and staying out of the town .. a part I'd never been to before. We explored Lights Beach and made our way up a track to Monkey Rock. Making our way home from Denmark we dropped into our friends farm, the Stone's, in Kojonup.

Even though it was only a week away it was definitely nice to feel ourselves slowly unwind and enjoy in the photos and messages we were still receiving.

Full hearts.
The only way I can think to describe this weekend.

14.11.15 - we got married.

  We were given a voucher to stay at Bunker Bay as an engagement present from family. It was the perfect little getaway. One month before the wedding ... a final trip down south together, stay in just the most beautiful place.
We finalised a lot of details, worked out where to go for photos and enjoyed the blue sky.

In August a little red puppy came into our lives and we named him Rusty. An early thirtieth present for Todd.
He's a dear little fellow and he's turned into a very sprightly pup!
