Jess and Kyle’s beautiful Autumn Marybrooke Manor wedding

Marybrooke Manor Wedding

Not too long ago it was my privilege to photograph Jess and Kyle’s beautiful Marybrooke Manor wedding, high up in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges.

We started with preparations shots at a friend’s property in nearby Kallista – down some roads I’m fairly sure I’ve never driven on, despite travelling around the mountain for the better part of my life!

Then it was on to Marybrooke to catch up with the guys for a quick pre-wedding shoot, before the girls arrived. A quick bit of liquid courage by bride Jess before getting out of the car – just wondering now, is that why she had the giggles during the ceremony? On reflection, I don’t think so – more likely just super happy 🙂

Congrats Jess and Kyle!

Jade and Harley’s gorgeous Autumn wedding at Meadowbank Receptions

In early March, Jade and Harley tied the knot at Meadowbank Receptions, a hidden gem in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Preparations shots for Jade and the girls were not far away in Mill Park, and it was great to catch up with Jade and her family again. After lots of phone conversations, we first met a month or two ago over a pub lunch in Yarra Glen, and it was great to chat again and meet the lovely bridesmaids.

Heading over to Meadowbank everyone was keeping a close eye on the weather – celebrant Janine and I were both keen to get things going on time as we looked at the radar, but thankfully the rain did hold off until after the ceremony.

Then it was time to catch some shots of the newlyweds just as the rain did start to fall – but not for long, and everyone could enjoy canapes and drinks by the pool.

We’d been looking forward to your wedding for a while Jade and Harley – hope you had a brilliant day and enjoy the shots 🙂
