Beautiful and timeless wedding photography; capturing your special day and all of the raw emotions experienced from one moment to the next. Our aim is to provide you with a time capsule of your day which will bring a smile to your face every time you both return to it to relive the love, the warmth and the joy.

We are documentary style wedding photographers; meaning that we are unintrusive and respectful; photographing your day as it plays out organically.

The variety of human experience is a big part of what we enjoy about documenting people and their celebrations; and we want to honour this by offering an inclusive service, welcoming all religions and cultures and being open to learning about the traditions and ceremonial nuances that we may not have come across before in order to represent them accurately in the photo suite that we capture of them. We are LGBTQIA + freindly and are delighted to be working in a world where we can photograph love being celebrated for exactly what it is.

This is our passion and we pull out all of the stops to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Please feel free to drop us a message and if we fit your budget and needs then we can have a no pressure chat and go from there.

Nathan and Darcie

Cannot recommend Nathan and Darcie enough, they were amazing from start to finish. Nathan went over and above to capture our photos on the day. He was so patient even when the wedding crowd was abit rowdy!

Excellent Photographer/Videographer Due that Enhanced our Wedding Day

I am so thrilled that we booked Heather & Hawthorns and hired the wonderful Nathan and Darcie to be part of our wedding day. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Very calm and professional, not at all pushy when it came to photographing us. It was almost like they blended in with the background and captured our wedding in such a perfectly natural way. Both super kind, down to earth people who only enhanced our wedding day and were a pleasure to have. They both had some great ideas when it came to photographing us and we are absolutely thrilled with the quality of our 30 preview photos we have received following the wedding. They really went the extra mile and were really professional when it came to getting to know our needs/wants for the day, contract signing and the communication was superb throughout. Nathan even stopped until the night time after arriving to photograph my bridal party preparations at 8am working through until almost 9pm! Can't wait to see what is left to come with the other photographs and video too! We really couldn't wished for a better couple to photograph our wedding and really can't recommend them enough. :-)

Amazing photos

Thank you so so much to Darcie and Nathan for preserving our wedding memories in the most beautiful way. The photos captured the emotions of the day brilliantly! They listened to what we wanted, and got a lovely mix of more traditional couple's pictures and the documentary-style emotional moments. We couldn't be happier! The colours in the editing are amazing, and goes so well with the colour scheme we chose. Several guests also commented on how kind and professional they were during the day. The box we recieved our pictures in was another lovely touch. All in all, we'd 100% recommend Heather and Hawthorn, and we are SO happy with the end results!

Perfect wedding photographers

After having done an engagement shoot with them we knew they would be the right ones for our wedding. Decided to have both photographers so both his and hers preparations were covered. Darcy was amazing at home with the ladies. She helped sort a minor jewelry issue, found the best places for pictures. And Nathan made the men comfortable. We were led by their expertise on photo locations after ceremony and were not disappointed. Their real life wedding photos were perfect! Already recommending to everyone!

Incredible couple to work with!

Nathan and Darcie are a wonderful, down to earth and professional couple to work with! Our photos are incredible - I cannot recommend them enough! Nathan captured the moments of our day and was so helpful suggesting shots as we had no clue what we wanted! Darcie has done a fantastic job with the editing - we can’t wait to frame them!
