On Saturday I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph Lydia and Kris celebrating their marriage with a Yarra Valley Wedding at the Warburton Golf Club. Having grown up in “the Valley”, there were lots of friends (old and new), and family around to celebrate this wedding of two genuine high-school sweethearts.
On Saturday it was a beautiful, bright and sunny day – perfect for for Sam and Steve, and you couldn’t have picked a more sun-drenched spot for a Warburton Golf Club wedding.
I know you want to get to the images so here they are – If you’d like, read on below the post for some more about the day.
Thanks again Sam and Steve, hope you love these! 🙂
Warburton Golf Club Wedding
I caught up with the guys at the place they were staying in Warburton, just around the from the golf course. Immediately I could tell we were going to have a good day, as the guys were happy and joking around – looking forward with anticipation and lot of excitement to the wedding itself. And with it being a family affair – all groomsmen being brothers Steve or Sam – it was easy to see they were having a great day and just so happy to celebrate Sam and Steve’s big day.
Absolutely loved the Ninja Turtle socks – having 4-year-old and 6-year-old boys and being a Ninja Turtle fan from my own childhood, how could I not?
And the pocket watches – very very cool. We got the idea to get a reflection shot of Steve and each of the groomsmen reflected in their watches – just included the one of Steve here, as I thought the post was long enough already!
The it was onwards to catch up with the girls, again just around the corner, which makes life very easy for your photographer when you’re so close to the venue!
Such a pleasure to meet up with Sam and her laid-back team of bridesmaids and lovely family, and a beautiful bright house to get ready in. Detail shots, getting ready, and then some portraits inside and briefly outside and it was time to go!
A fairly hot afternoon was developing and guests were hiding in the shade at the club, but a very happy and laughter-filled ceremony followed, conducted by fun celebrant Che.
With the giant LOVE letters and lawn-games set up for guests to be entertained while the gang went off for photos, we gathered up some golf carts and headed up the hills to take advantage of the club’s location, nestled between a couple of mountains, including the one where we happen to live – it was a bit strange to be photographing a wedding so close to home!
Thanks again Sam and Steve – look forward to catching up with you soon.
The first Tuesday in November is an important day on the calendar, and no more so than this year – because it was the day of Jessica and Tarek’s amazing Sandhurst Club wedding!
I caught up with the guys for an express getting-ready session at Jess and Tarek’s place, and we also headed out to a nearby park to get a couple of shots with their cute little Biscuit.
Then it was across to Murrumbeena to where the Jess and her lovely bridesmaids were getting ready, along with her family, in their beautiful family home. It made a great spot for some dress shots, hanging up against the wood panelling. After the girls were ready, we headed back to the park and some more shots with Biscuit, as well as some beautiful parasols.
Then it was down to the Sandhurst Club, and ceremony conducted by the lovely Julia from Julia’s Celebrancy Services – it was a very cosy ceremony with lots of smiles and laughter, and some very sweet vows shared between the about-to-be-newlyweds.
And the ceremony – well it had it all, from a beautiful cake made by the bride herself, lolly buffet, fireworks, a choreographed first dance – hard to imagine how they pulled it all together on a short timeline, but it was such a brilliant night with lots happening and smiles all round.
Hope you like the shots and congratulations again Jess and Tarek!
