Hi…I’m Sue Taylor

Hey everybody. My name is Sue Taylor and I’m the owner of Sue Taylor Photography, Mystwood Weddings (formerly Elope or Wed with a Twist) – and the author of the best wedding planner – “Wedding Planning Made Easy” and other books.

I’ve been involved in thousands of weddings and I know everything about them – and that’s why they call me “Yoda of Weddings”.

I’m a mother of 2 fur babies, Chewbacca & Hans Solo (aka Chewy and Solo) and I live in the beautiful Hunter Valley wine region in NSW, Australia. My passion is weddings. I am always super organised and very creative. I love cooking – watching Gordon Ramsay and any reality tv.

I started my hairdressing apprenticeship when I was just 13 and by the time I was 17, was the manager of a large salon. By the age of 19, I was General Manager of 13 salons in Adelaide.

I moved to the Gold Coast some years later – opened my own hair salon and started my own chemical free hair, skin and body care range.

Next stop was Sydney – where I became the General Manager of a ‘music and film’ Arts Academy and then moved onto General Manager of the largest recording studio and scoring stage in the Southern Hemisphere at Fox Studios.

Across this time – I was also a tv presenter working on many different tv shows and commercials.

I found my passion for photography while working in the music industry – so I bought my kit – left my job – and taught myself how to be a photographer.

Not long after – I was commissioned to shoot a book (which still sells globally today) – and I travelled the world across 9 countries in 21 days to complete my brief.

Photography led me to weddings, where I found my true calling.

I’ve also won over 20 Australian national and state awards in wedding photography and have been listed in the top ten wedding photographers in Australia for more than 5 years.

These days you’ll find me busy at the most stunning wedding venue nestled in the Hunter Valley – planning around 3 weddings a week all year round. I don’t shoot as much as I used to as I’m so busy planning, but I still do pick up my camera from time to time. Somehow through all this – I managed to find the time to write a couple of books.

So here I am. Yoda of Weddings – and I’m here to share all my vast knowledge with you.

I love sharing all my wedding knowledge so be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel and follow me on my socials and if you have any wedding related questions email me yodaofweddings@gmail.com.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

♡ ​Sue
