Shane told his guests in his speech at his wedding that he wanted everyone to have “sore feet from dancing, sore mouths from smiling and to go home thinking that was a good party!”.  And wow did those words ring true for everyone sharing in Shane & Amanda’s wedding celebrations that night.

Shane & Amanda make such a great couple, they don’t take themselves too seriously and not only do they give so much of themselves to all they love – they are extremely loved by all who know them.
Officiating at their wedding was not only so much fun but it was a real honour.    Their day was filled with so many special moments and many laughs and one that their friends and family fondly remember.

Thanks to these wonderful images captured by their family friend Heath Morrison, I am able to relive that wonderful day again.

Amanda and Shane choose to have their wedding ceremony at Aria bar at the iconic docklands with the cityscape as the backdrop.
