Briars Country Lodge Wedding

The Briars Country Lodge wedding in Bowral of Ashleigh & Daniel was a day filled with emotion, love and an awesome party!!

The wedding, from start to finish, all happened at the one location. At the stunning Briars Country Lodge and Historic Inn in the Southern Highlands, Bowral. Which actually started as an Inn back in 1827. It is a beautiful fifteen-acre property set in the country-side, with lots of big trees, open fields and even a lake.

They both got ready on site at different ends of the property. So they were still able to stay out of sight from each other. They did, however, write beautiful notes to each other, which they read during their wedding preparation. They were some pretty special moments and it’s so great to see a couple who are able to be open and let their emotions show.

The wedding ceremony was held in the beautiful gardens with the lake in the background. The wedding pretty much booked out the whole place, so wedding guests were able to literally walk out from their terrace to the ceremony.

After the ceremony, we did a few photos around the property with the Bridal party. Ashleigh and Daniel then just hung out with their guests. Eating and drinking with them in the garden. Then just before the sun disappeared behind the horizon, we went out and did a few sunset photos.

The wedding reception had some great food, funny & tear-jerking speeches, a fully choreographed wedding dance and an absolutely crazy party and dancefloor, courtesy of XYDJ.

So enjoy this awesome Briars Country Lodge wedding. It was an amazing day and I can’t wait to photograph more weddings there!

Bimbadgen Palmers Lane Wedding

The Bimbadgen Palmers Lane wedding of Francesca & Kate was a beautiful same sex wedding in one of the most picturesque locations in the Hunter Valley.

This was my first time to Bimbadgen Palmers Lane in the Hunter Valley. But I quickly realised that I had been there before it was an actual wedding venue. It used to be one of my favourite locations on a wedding day. It has gorgeous rolling hills with vines and lots of long grass, that really shows off the beauty of the Hunter Valley region.

Bimbagen Palmers Lane is actually separate from Bimbagen winery. Bimbagen Winery used to do weddings but because they do a lot of concerts there, they were never really able to book weddings too far out. So this obviously made it tricky for couples trying to plan a wedding.

Now, Bimbagen Palmers Lane is a purpose built wedding venue and it has quickly become one of my favourites. It is perfect for country weddings and is located in such a beautiful spot.

The Wedding Day

On the wedding day, Francesca got ready on one of the properties onsite while Kate got ready at her parent’s place which was literally three minutes down the road. Bonnie-Lee did a beautiful job with makeup.

The wedding ceremony was held between the two trees overlooking vineyards and mountains. It was stunning! The celebrant was Mel from Hitched in the Hunter, who always does an amazing job.

But what was even better was seeing two people so totally in love and so happy together. They couldn’t stop giggling and laughing the whole ceremony.

After the ceremony, we all hopped on their quad bike and drove around the property for a few sunset photos

The wedding reception was held out under the stars and looked stunning. I love how personal Francesca & Kate made their reception. They wrote an individual message and individual photo for each wedding guest. Which would have taken a lot of work and I don’t think I have seen done before at a wedding I have shot. After eating and some beautiful, touching speeches, there was some awesome dance floor craziness till late into the night.

This Bimbagen Palmers Lane wedding was an amazing day to be a part of and I can see this venue becoming one of the most popular wedding venues in the Hunter Valley.

Alice Springs Wedding

The Alice Springs wedding of Cassie & Jared was an incredible event in one of Australia’s most beautiful locations. And it is a place I have wanted to photograph a wedding at for a long time.

We are well aware that we are incredibly lucky to be able to make a living. Doing something that we truly love and are passionate about. As a wedding photographer, some weddings really serve as a wonderful reminder of just how great we have it. And this was definitely one of those weddings.

Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, is just a three hour flight from Sydney but is such a completely different world. It is such a contrast from the concrete, hustle & bustle of Sydney, to the red-earth, slower and friendlier pace of ‘The Alice’. This lovely little small town in the middle of Australia, covered in red dirt and surrounded by an epic mountain range. The first thing that struck me when arriving at Alice Springs was just how beautiful and stunning this place is. The second… the flies… OMG the flies… they were crazy!

As a wedding photographer, I love getting to capture weddings in new places. It was very exciting to tick this off my bucket list. But what was even better was to meet and get to know this wonderful couple and their family. I met Cassie & Jarred pretty much as soon as I got off the plane to do an engagement shoot at Simpsons Gap. They were so warm and welcoming.

Their wedding took place at the Old Outback Quarry Alice Springs and it was stunning! It is such a perfect location. The ceremony in this wide expanse of space, yet still giving off an intimate feel. There was amazing backdrops almost everywhere you looked. And the reception was elegantly set up under a few lights and millions of stars.

As an Alice Springs wedding photographer I am thrilled to show you this gorgeous wedding . And I can’t wait to photograph a few more Outback weddings in the future.
