Tasmanian Wedding & Portrait Photographer Karen Brown

Rebecca & Kyle’s elopement wedding in Sandy Bay

Bec and Kyle travelled from Brisbane for their intimate elopement style wedding on New Year’s Eve here in Hobart. They love Tasmania and decided this was the place for them to be married. I photographed their wedding in a unique spot, the historic Alexandra Battery in Sandy Bay, on a hill overlooking the Derwent. One of our all-time favourite celebrants, Maxine Lowry, made sure the ceremony was both personal and meaningful as she spoke about Bec and Kyle’s love for eachother . Maxine also has a lot of information for couples on her website, as well as her Elope to Tasmania FAQ sheet which is essential reading. After the ceremony we took some time to explore the remains of the old fortification, with its walls and tunnels providing some really interesting texture and atmosphere for our photo shoot.
