KATIE & TOM, QLD
Queensland lens lady Renee Green Creative sure did knock it out of the park with her captures of Katie and Tom’s wedding. From the stunning gown from Ella Moda (aka our fave bridal gown shopping destination in Milton, QLD and a MUST visit for anyone gown shopping) to the beaut blooms by Mrs Gibbons Flowers. and super cute ring boxes from The Whole Bride, it’s easy to see why this was one of our most liked and clicked on weddings for the year.

ELLA & BELLA, NSW
Besides having the cutest names and gosh darn cutest outfits, this wedding was so inspiring on many fronts, especially when it comes to all things circular fashion and sustainability (click here to read about the brides sweet op shop finds). Now let’s turn to the photos. For the 10 years that Hello May has existed, Brissy based Stories By Ash has come up with the goods. She’s the kindest most loveliest human and takes a damn good picture, so why wouldn’t you want to hire her. Queensland based or planning a wedding in Northern NSW? Enquire here for her pricing and availability.
MILLIE & RYAN, NSW
Audley Dancehall and Cafe is one of the most magical venues in all of NSW! It has the distinct and rare privilege of being located right in the heart of Sydney’s Royal National Park, so it’s no surprise to us this magical day, which included a stunning Prea James Bridal gown, was a firm favourite with readers. The sweet snaps by With Love Weddings are a huge reason this image in particular went nutso on our Instagram – just look at the joy, captured forever, on those faces. Book a tour of Audley and it’s heritage listed dancehall here and check out more from With Love Weddings here.
NHARIAH & NICK, VIC
It’s no secret we bloody love a backyard wedding here at Hello May and no one captures them quite like our home girl Jess from Brown Paper Parcel. Nhariah and Nick’s Vietnamese Tea Ceremony was a labour of love with friends and family all pitching in to make the day a reality.

ASHLEIGH & ZAC, NSW
House of Lucie, who just so happens to be one of our fave Newcastle/Hunter Valley wedding photographers, has popped up on our best of lists a few times this year, and one look at her gorgeous snaps and you totally get why weddings like Ashleigh and Zac’s Hunter Valley day was so damn popular. Of course, a contributing factor is also that gorgeous Rue De Seine gown from Sydney fave The Bridal Atelier.

MOLLY & JOSH, NSW
Of course elopements were crazy popular this past year and those clever kids from Bulb Creative (shooting for Elopement Collective) never fail to knock it out of the park. We just love their shooting style oh so much – especially all the warm feels they captured for Molly and Josh’s elopement. This wedding is a must check out, especially if you’re on the hunt for wedding rings as these guys went to our fave Meg Maskell Fine Jewellery for their rings.

We love a couple that throws tradition at the wedding and creates a day that is truly a reflection of them and that pretty much sums up Hannah and Tim’s bright and fun Melbourne wedding, snapped by one of our fave lens ladies Miranda Stokkel. We love the brides black shin length gown that she’ll no doubt enjoy wearing for many years to come.
