Kathleen and Bryce’s gorgeous country wedding at Lake House Daylesford

Lake House Daylesford Wedding

On a Friday late in November 2016 I travelled all the way across to the awesome Lake House Daylesford for Kathleen and Bryce’s amazing country wedding. What a truly beautiful spot it is, right on the lake right in the centre of famous Daylesford in central Victoria – perfect for a laid-back and very cute couple.

Below is the gallery – check it out and read on below for a little more about the day.

Congratulations again Kathleen and Bryce, hope you enjoy 🙂

 

Lake House Daylesford

 

It was around a year since I met up with Kathleen and Bryce at a little cafe in Warrandyte, and when I caught up with Bryce last Saturday I had to actually confirm it was him – gone was the read hair and long beard, and it was the clean shaven fella with a funky haircut – I would have walked past him in the street, no problem 🙂

One detail I absolutely loved and hadn’t seen before was the Minion cakes for the kids – a little something special for the super-well-behaved kids went a long way, I watched them open the cakes and they really loved them too.

Cute candy bomboniere with their names, a custom-made sign reading “The Jaggers” – all the little details that were included in the wedding showed that everything had been carefully planned – which seems like it might be a trademark of these guys.

The venue of course was the picturesque and famous Lake House in Daylesford – http://www.lakehouse.com.au/

The lovely celebrant that I met for the first time was Tracey Patterson – http://www.celebrateyourlove.com.au/

After having first met Ash and Kim quite some time before the wedding, it was great to catch up with them again. I met up with the guys at Ruby’s Cottages right in Daylesford. The guys were looking great and were just about ready to go, so as soon as I got closeups of ties, shoes, cufflinks and, of course, the rings, they were ready to help Ash get completely ready. A couple of very good whiskys were definitely in order (not for myself, unfortunately – no drinking on the job 🙂

I took a short ride over so see how Kim and the girls were getting on, just in time to catch the last of hair and makeup being completed. There were some beautiful flowers as well, provided by Wombat Hill Nursery & Florist. And what a gorgeous group of bridesmaids, parents and helper kids they were – so easy to work with and excited about the day ahead.

The wedding ceremony was conducted in St Peter’s church, once again in Daylesford. Some special moments from the ceremony included some readings, and the entrance of the kids with their signboards. After the ceremony, Kim and Ash left via the aisle, and we did a group shot and some family portraits in the shade outside the church.

The weather had turned beautiful for us as we headed down to the lake for the more contemporary bridal shots, and with everyone working together well we covered a heap of different shots in a short space of time.

Then it was back to Frangos & Frangos for a couple of drinks before a very grand entrance through some confetti 🙂 Lots of confetti. And this was a fantastic http://premier-pharmacy.com/ reception, lots of dancing, emotional and heartfelt speeches, and the mother of all thunderstorms that hit right in the middle of it! Luckily everyone was cosy in the beautiful restaurant, so it didn’t matter what was going on outside.

I loved some of the first dance shots from this reception, and the cake topper was a beauty as well.
