Tocal Homestead Wedding

Tocal Homestead Wedding

The Tocal Homestead wedding of Anna & Stirling was such an awesome day to photograph in one of the most beautiful locations in the Hunter Valley region. It is located in the Hunter Valley town of Paterson, right in the middle of working farms and was the perfect place for their rustic, country wedding.

The wedding took place on a beautiful but pretty hot 37°C summers day, but there was a nice breeze throughout the day which helped take the edge off the heat. The wedding ceremony took place in the front garden at Tocal Homestead, under a giant Fig tree which was a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. After the ceremony we did some photos around the property while guests did tours of the historic homestead, drank and played lawn games.  The wedding reception was also held onsite in the converted barn. And we even managed to venture out from the reception at sunset to get some sunset photos of the two of them.

But what I really loved about this wedding was how uninhibited, natural and fun these guys were. They just played and had fun together when we did location portraits and also throughout the day and night.

So I hope you enjoy this amazing Tocal Homestead wedding and I can’t wait to go back there to photograph more weddings. :)

Merribee Wedding

Merribee Wedding

The Merribee wedding of Shelly & Josh was simply amazing… beautiful venue, great light and two awesome people.

Merribee is a stunning historic farm house on a seven acres property located in Numbaa on the South Coast of NSW. It has everything you need for you entire wedding day, with not only the gorgeous main house but also a  beautifully converted grain silo for you to get ready onsite if you choose. Amazing gardens for outdoor ceremonies and receptions or a dance floor under the stars. As well a lovely rustic wooden barn that is perfect for your wedding reception.

The South Coast threw all it’s worst weather at us, but Josh made the call to keep the ceremony outside in the garden. All morning they were being told the ceremony would have to be moved because of the rain, but when he arrived at the ceremony he literally moved everything back outdoors and made the call to stay there even when the rain started again… and it totally worked out of the best. The rain stopped just as Shelly arrived at the ceremony:)

The wedding reception was held out in the barn with the outdoor dance floor pumping later in the night!

Enjoy the beautiful Merribee wedding of Shelly & Josh and I think it shows you don’t need perfect weather to have a great wedding.

Adams Peak Wedding

Adams Peak Wedding

The Adams Peak Wedding in Broke of Kayte & Adam was a wedding that was literally very close to home for us. As Kayte & Adam are actually our neighbours and live just across the road from us. So I really wanted to do a good job for them :)

The whole day & night all happened on property at Adams Peak. They both got ready in different rooms on site so it was really easy for me to walk back and forth between them. The wedding ceremony and reception, which was held out in ‘The Barn’, was all beautifully decorated by the Bride & Groom. Lots of DIY. They needed a truck to bring all the decorations and also used their Grandparents furniture on the lawn for the pre dinner drinks area.

The Bride & Groom also had an ‘unplugged’ ceremony. Their dad just asked the guest to put down their cameras, be present and enjoy the wedding ceremony.

Adam & Kayte’s Adams Peak wedding was an amazing day to be a part of.
