They met online initially on fb, they spoke for a couple of weeks before meeting in person in Jan 2014. But love make the magic and things moved really fast.
Here are a few favourites from Simone and Paul’s Collaroy, Sydney engagement session…
One of the best things about Simone and Paul is their quickness to laugh and their light heartedness. It’s one of their most endearing qualities…
Of course, what would their engagement session be without some bubbles?
The entire day was overcast and grey, but we made the best of it and capitalized on the pretty, diffused light…loved it!
their engagement session was a perfect way to get to know them better before the wedding…one thing is for certain: I absolutely adore how much fun these two have with each other…
I’ll end this post with photo because it embodies exactly how Simone and Paul love…with their entire hearts and smiles on their faces.

BLUE GLUE BIKINIS Blue Glue’s founder and designer is addressed by “Marie bikini”. Her name remains anonymous and the nickname has adopted her. As for Blue Glue, that was simply freestyle!… The brand is born on the tiny atoll that is Bali… A never-ending source of inspiration that ignites projects when motives we’re originally to retire. Marie arrived in 1994 with three toddlers in the aim to sit back and enjoy a laid back life, but the inner workaholic she is took over and Blue Glue was born.
