The Wedding of Mr & Mrs Mannix


10th February 2024

Located in the scenic region of the Shoalhaven in New South Wales, Berry is a quaint

by its heritage-listed buildings, many of which date back to the 19th century, lending it a

unique and timeless appeal, making it the perfect backdrop for a unique and timeless


Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, including nearby beaches, national parks, and

wineries, Berry served as an ideal destination for Dan & Tayla to become husband and wife.

As a make-up artist herself, Tayla is usually the one behind the brush, rather than the

canvas! It was a full circle moment for Tayla as her makeup mentor Loretta led the glam

squad on her big day.

Tayla wore an incredible Storybook Bridal Gown which was flowy and light with a textured

"Such a pleasure to have you on our wedding day! ❤ receiving the preview album the next morning and I had tears flowing down my cheeks. Lea you made us both feel so calm as we laughed, smiled and kissed all day! We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our wedding photos from Lea & lens. Lea somehow managed to capture all of the best moments of our special day along with the emotion, while still being subtle and so easy to deal with. In addition to that, leading up to our wedding day Lea was great with her communication which made us feel confident and relaxed. It was easy to see we were dealing with an experienced professional. Highly, highly, highly recommend.”
