Soulstory: Recreating Your Story


The reason good poems are remembered is because of the great sentence.
The reason films are remembered is because of one great scene.
SoulStory believe a collection of special moments can lead to great work, but it's not possible without the stories that come before and after. SoulStory call this 'the soul of the story'.

Their story began with the meeting of two creative teams; one who holds-still special moments in time, the other who weaves cinematic stories that captivate moving moments. Both adored each other’s creations, and so, to truly capture the soul of your story, Thayen and SoulStoryArt created SoulStory

Their work is not only based on how you envision it to be retold, but also on how it is to be shared. After all, memories aren’t stories unless they are laughed and felt with family and friends.

Visit SoulStory to view their stunning images.

Real Life Wedding: Simone and Andy 10.11.12


Images by Denise Teo Photography
Reportage - French word for 'documenting of the event, capturing the reality of the visual content', or as Australian's would say 'candid - nothing too posie!'

Bride and groom, Simone and Andy married at Bathers Pavilion, Balmoral Beach on the special date 10.11.12, on a sunny summer's Saturday.



This was the best 'arrival of the bride' ever! Simone walked down the aisle while Barry White's 'I can't get enough of your love babe' filled the air, and Andy got into the groove and rhythm of it all. This really showed the fun-loving side of the couple and demonstrated their good sense of humour.

Rings were exchanged, a kiss to 'seal the deal', then papers were signed. Ms Rosseau and Mr West were married...



Superb couture food and fine refreshments were served to the lucky guests. Closest family and friends greeted them with hugs and kisses after the ceremony. All was good in the universe on the beautiful coastline of Sydney's Northern beaches...


Let them eat cake! Talk about decadent... thirty-five guests were treated to a menu of 'pure couture' food at Bathers Pavilion for the reception. The food was absolutely delicious – enough to please any food critic anywhere in the world! Mezzapica of Leichhardt made a stunning cake of triple chocolate with ganache filling on the bottom, and exquisite vanilla tiramisu on the top! The cake was that impressive, many guests said it was possibly the best wedding cake they had ever tasted!


After the food, the very talented triple Aria award-winning band, Monsieur Camembert, played themselves into everyone's heart. They set the mood for the very happy vibe felt by all at the wedding, and played some French songs to the delight of French bride Simone. 


So the newlyweds cut the cake and then took to the dancefloor for the all-important first dance as husband and wife. Before long, the bride's parents Albert and Arlette were in each other's arms, young at heart and in love all over again. Love was definitely in the air.

Images by Denise Teo Photography
The afternoon had flown by... Nieces and nephews ran freely, swimming and playing at the bayside, while guests sat in quiet contemplation. 

Simone and Andy left at 4:30 and headed home to continue their life journey together...

Wedding photographer Denis Teo of Denise Teo Photography described Simone and Andy's wedding, as being a very relaxed wedding day, with an emphasis on 'being yourself' and a harmonious vibe in the company of great friends, family, food, drinks and live music. Their little nieces and nephews even went swimming in their undies in the afternoon! So real, and a great representation of the friendly, down to earth and fun nature of the couple, mixed with elements of both French (Simone) and Australian (Andy) heritages to bring two families together as one.

Winter Brings The Wedding Of Your Dreams Within Reach

Sergeants Mess
The Tea Room Gunners' Barracks
On your big day, it’s the small things that matter, and a wedding experience beyond comparison is now at your fingertips as Grand Pacific Group unveils its Winter Wedding Packages for 2013.

Imagine a dream wedding within your price range at any one of Grand Pacific Group’s four elegant Sydney wedding venues next winter that includes a host of luxurious, complimentary extras to make your special day even more unforgettable.

Whether it’s the timeless elegance of The Tea Room QVB, the majestic harbour views offered from The Tea Room Gunners’ Barracks and Sergeants’ Mess, or the historic waterfront glamour of Dunbar House
Grand Pacific Group’s Winter Wedding Packages for 2013 start from just $130 per head when booked on a Friday or Sunday during winter 2013 and include up to $1,500 worth of complimentary extras, unique to each venue. 

Each of Grand Pacific Group’s Winter Wedding Packages includes canapé service, a meticulously planned three course dinner menu and a six hour standard beverage package. Complimentary extras include the use of a dance floor, microphone and lectern and a Flashback Photobooth for guests to enjoy for five hours. 

 “Not only are winter weddings less expensive, but with Sydney winters so mild and beautiful, there are a plethora of reasons to say “I do” in the off-season,” says Holly Orsman Smith, Director of Sales and Marketing for Grand Pacific Group. 

Aside from the fantastic cost savings, Holly lists five other reasons to consider a winter wedding in 2013:

1. Why wait? Not everyone wants an 18 month engagement. “We have brides frequently happy to get married in as little as three to six months of their engagement, but their weekend of choice is often not available,” says Holly. “For couples getting engaged over the spring and summer who aren’t looking for a long engagement, a winter wedding is a great option.”

2. Secure the cream of the crop – Holly points out that not only are your guests going to have lighter schedules in winter, but so will suppliers. “A winter wedding means you’re likely to be spoiled for choice in securing your dream photographer, videographer, or wedding band, rather than missing out because they’re already booked elsewhere.”

3. Don’t sweat it – “Sydney summers are spectacular, but they’re also steamy. If you’re planning on wearing a more elaborate gown, and you fancy the gents in suits, your bridal party will thank you for turning down the thermostat a few degrees.” says Holly.

4. Head north – “Many of our couples plan to head to the Northern Hemisphere for their honeymoons, which means they’ll touch-down in winter following a summer wedding here in Australia,” says Holly. “If you’re getting married in winter, what better time to save up and head to Europe or the USA and enjoy their summer!”

5. The light fantastic – “Winter is a great time for photography,” says Holly. “The lighting is softer and you don’t have to worry about squinting in the summer sun. And your makeup is more likely to stay picture-perfect for longer,” she said. 

Prices for Grand Pacific Group’s Winter Wedding packages begin at just $1,301 per person, inclusive of additional extras when booked on a Friday or Sunday from May 1st to August 31st, 2013. Minimum spends applicable.
