// Susie Figgis

"Hi, I’m Susie, a creative mother, sister, and wife.  I live with my family by the beach in this blessed Bunjalung country. As a wife I am constantly navigating my own way through the joys and challenges of love, marriage and family life.

Other people say I’m relaxed and earthy and they enjoy that my ceremonies are delivered with warmth and confidence.

My combined interest in ceremony and the fact that I am a love story enthusiast, as well as my practical grounding as a corporate facilitator, naturally led me years ago to become a Celebrant.  It’s pretty cool knowing I do something that people value and my life is enriched with the experience of shaping and sharing in these powerful moments with inspirational people."

french petal

"I’m Estelle, the flower fairy behind The French Petal. My passion for floristy led me to Paris first to learn this art, then my different travels have nurtured my skills with many influences.

Happily based in Mullumbimby, my workshop burst with pods, branches and textural foliage… Here, I get all of the inspiration I need to create fresh and unique floral arrangements, allowing me the freedom and time to design something really special and personalized for you.…"

// YELLOWBULL WEDDINGS

We are a small team of visual creatives who love to capture a genuine encounter of weddings, whilst utilising equipment and techniques to capture beautiful and exciting imagery.

Our passion is capturing beautiful and cinematic imagery, then cutting it together to tell a unique story and what story is more unique and beautiful than two people joining together for the rest of their lives? We have both been trained in the art of filmmaking and audio and bring our knowledge and creativity to each wedding we have the pleasure of filming. We are unobtrusive in our shooting manner and do our best to be a calming yet fun influence to you on your day.

Before your wedding day, we will take you on a coffee date where we can meet each other and get to know a bit about you and also to get a grasp of your style and what you might like. On the day we are on the ball and friendly but unobtrusive. We don’t think of your day as “just filming another wedding”, we think of it as creating something that you will watch and cherish for the rest of your life.

 

 

// RABBIT & THE BEAR

One day all of your nearest and dearest will congregate to watch you exchange rings, a few heartfelt words and a kiss with your best friend. You’ll finally share the only thing you never have, you’ll take his last name, drinks will flow and two families will become one. As the years roll on your hands will age, your rings will wear, your memories will fade. Your film will serve as a reminder of how young you both were, how shiny your rings began and how happy everyone was in the very moment that two lives became one.

We are two peas in a pod, dog loving, beach dwelling, coffee drinking creatives who thrive on good vibes and similar souls.
