Niss and Chris made Mother Nature the hero of their wedding day. Set amid beautiful paperbark bushland in the northern New South Wales coastal resort village of Kingscliff, the couple’s unstated elegance and style was a natural fit with surroundings at Osteria Striking that delicate balance to achieve a look and feel between sophisticated charm and effortless regard is not easy, but Niss and Chris managed it with aplomb.  The bride and her entourage prepped for the nuptials at the very glamorous Peppers Resort, while Chris and his besties played with the couple’s son before indulging in a glass or two of fine whiskey before departing for the ceremony. 

With festoon lights strung overhead and bunches of bright green fern leaves marking the edges of the grassy aisle, Niss and Chris took their vows in front of a large gathering of friends and family, framed by a simple square dark wooden structure. For the ceremony, Niss wore a satin gown from up-market Sydney bridal designer Babushka Ballerina finished with a delicate crown of fresh daisies and greenery. Her attendants wore cream with best friend Aaron donning a floral shirt to complement his light-coloured chinos. Chris and his groomsmen dressed in Navy jackets, beige chinos, bow ties and loafers. The formal wedding photographs taken amid the soft hues of the bushland were infused with feelings of intimacy and enchantment.  In contrast, the wedding photographs taken at the farm, with their rich and earthy colours and open sky conveyed their hopes and dreams of a long, bright and fruitful future together. And from our perspective, every aspect of this wedding was a photographer’s wish come true. Pelazzari is fortunate to not only have had the privilege of being Niss and Chris’s wedding photographer and wedding videographer, but also the pleasure of being their family photographer and creating family albums for them to treasure through the years.
