It was an honour to have been asked to photograph Megan and Mark’s reception and at Yarra Ranges Estate wedding, and to have the opportunity to shoot a first-look at well is always an extra special moment.
Mark I have known for a long time – we went to school together (although a few years apart, and too many years ago!). When he contacted me to have a chat about the possibility of me covering his wedding to the lovely Megan, it was great to meet her and catch up with him again, as it had been a few years since we were in touch on anything other than Facebook.
So we caught up, and after chatting things through, it was awesome to hear that they wanted me to cover the wedding at the beautiful Yarra Ranges Estate. We even had the opportunity to do a pre-wedding shoot in the Redwood forest up here near home (more to be shown on that later … )
Breakfast and prep with the guys, preparations for the girls at an absolutely stunning B&B in Kallista, followed by a first-look and then on to an amazing wedding, surrounded by friends and family – absolutely brilliant.
Here’s a sneak preview Megan and Mark – hope you love them, and congratulations!
Yarra Ranges Estate Wedding
The venue was the Yarra Ranges Estate, and the weather turned out one of those Melbourne Autumn days perfect for a big-sky wedding – http://yarrarangesestate.com.au/
On a sunny Thursday, Chloe and Jules were married on the top of the hill in a beautiful Riverstone Estate wedding celebration.
Starting off with preparation shots for both Jules and Chloe, we then headed up to Riverstone Estate. Lovely and very engaging celebrant Bianca was there to conduct the ceremony, overlooking the Valley under the bluest of blue Melbourne skies.
Our photos afterwards were shot down by the river, as well as with the bridal party in the grounds of the Estate, and also included some special time for sunset shots – as requested specially by Chloe, and didn’t the weather do it’s part?
Finishing the night off was a lot of chatting, catching up and dancing.
Thanks again for having me photograph your big day, and congratulations Chloe and Jules 🙂
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.
