On Saturday I loaded up the car with all the gear and headed down for Bonnie and Aron’s Geelong wedding (well, Grovedale – which is actually a fair way out from Geelong when you get there 🙂 )
I’d met with Bonnie and Aron a month or so ago to finalise everything. It was their turn to come up to the Valley that time. We had a chance to talk through how the day would pan out, and they went away to find the spots they’d like to use for location shots after the wedding.
With absolutely beautiful weather, I arrived at Aron’s family’s home for the groom’s preparation shots. With some Elvis going in the background, the family were gathered to help Aron prepare. I think it’s safe to say there were some nerves there, but that is normal for a wedding day.
On to meet up with Bonnie and girls. When I arrived there was some intense jewellery cleaning going on – and all the jewellery was absolutely sparkling come wedding time. With a beautiful dress hanging in the lounge, Bonnie was pretty relaxed and I have to say remained that way throughout the day. A very chilled out bride and groom all round actually.

Geelong wedding celebration
The ceremony was led by Pastor Scott, who delivered a very modern, thoughtful and entertaining few words before conducting the Geelong wedding formalities.
Outside for a group shot, which is why the ladder had come down with me – we had over a hundred people to include, so the ladder made things that much easier.
After formal shots with family the bridal party headed off to Bonnie and Aron’s chosen location – a pretty little lake and some bushland just out of town. We had about 45 minutes to shoot, and I think we got some great stuff in that time.
When we got back to the hall, it had been completely transformed for the reception. And everyone looked to be having a great time, despite the temporary fire alarm and visit by the fire brigade 🙂
For me then it was back into the car, a few hours drive back to home before transferring and backing up the images, recharging everything, and getting ready to do it all again the next day.
