Jaida and Paul’s Ballara Receptions Chapel Celebration

Very lovely couple Jaida and Paul got married in October 2018 at one of our favourite spots for Yarra Valley Weddings, beautiful Ballara Receptions. They tied the knot in the Chapel, and Jaida was able to time her arrival absolutely perfectly. As I write this post, there’s heavy rain falling just outside my window – just as it was literally minutes before Jaida arrived at Ballara, and literally minutes after she entered the chapel! With Celebrant Erin Rollason conductin a […]

Hannah and Tom

On the last Saturday in March, we photographed the stunning garden ceremony of Hannah and Tom at one of the amazing wedding venues Melbourne has to offer – Ballara Receptions, with it’s beautiful gardens and location in leafy Eltham. Hannah and Tom both got ready surrounded by close friends and family in their very thoughtful and helpful bridal parties, and then headed on to Ballara for both the ceremony and reception. The ceremony by lovely celebrant Lisa Graham was very […]

Ballara Receptions Chapel Wedding

Ballara Receptions Chapel Wedding – Samantha and James

Samantha and James tied the knot on Saturday with a beautiful Ballara Receptions chapel wedding in the Melbourne suburb of Eltham. The boys got ready at a family home in Tecoma, tucked away in the Dandenong Ranges. Although James was doing a pretty good “I’m super relaxed” impression, we got the feeling that there was some real excitement and anticipation starting creep in as I headed off to photograph the girls’ preparations. Sam and the girls were preparing at an […]

Ballara Receptions Melbourne Spring wedding

Sandra and Andrew’s Melbourne Spring Wedding

On a beautiful Saturday in late October, I photographed the gorgeous Melbourne Spring wedding of Sandra and Andrew, by the lake at beautiful Ballara Receptions. Starting with the guys’ preparations, I headed all the way across town to Pascoe Vale where Andrew and his groomsmen were all getting ready. Meeting up with Steven Beck our awesome videographer for the day, we got lots of great prep shots with the guys helping Andrew get ready, Mum pinning the flowers and some […]

Laura and Steve’s Ballara Receptions Chapel Wedding

On a Friday in September, 2017 we photographed the fun and happy wedding of Laura and Stephen, at the pretty Ballara Receptions chapel. Although I’ve phohotographed at Ballara many times, it’s always different depending on the weather. Laura and Steven had made the call earlier in the day to go with a chapel wedding instead of getting married in the garden, and this turned out to be a very fine decision. After photographing Laura’s preparations, I headed to Ballara hoping […]

Annie and Jack – Ballara Receptions

On an absolutely perfect Autumn Melbourne day (does Melbourne get any better than it’s Autumn?), Annie and Jack got hitched in a very touching and sweet Ballara Receptions wedding. This was followed by a party and celebration at one of Melbourne’s most loved wedding reception venues. With preparations at a nearby hotel, I arrived to find the guys all set and super-organised – I was later to find out that I shouldn’t have been surprised by this 🙂 After preparations […]

Anastasia and Darren - Tokar Estate

Anastasia and Darren’s gorgeous Spring wedding at Ballara Receptions and Tokar Estate

On Sunday morning early, it was such a pleasure to photograph Anastasia and Darren’s wedding at Ballara Receptions, followed by lunch (and a few more photos) at stunning Tokar Estate, just down the road in Coldstream. Anastasia and her bridesmaids all arrived in a long white limo at 10.30am on the dot, including bridesmaid/groomsmaid(?) Carly. Definitely a family affair with the 6 combined children all acting as the bridal party, truly a modern merged family 🙂 Obviously a couple very […]

Ballara Receptions Wedding

Courtney and Matt’s amazing and fun-filled wedding at Ballara Receptions

Last Saturday it was my privilege to spend the day with Courtney and Matt to capture their awesome Ballara Receptions wedding. Preparations for them both were at home (and Mum’s place, in Courtney’s case), and then the beautiful chapel ceremony and fun-filled reception at Ballara. Meeting Matt and his brilliant and fun family, including all the brothers and bro-from-another-mo best-man Deki, was a huge amount of fun and instantly I could tell this was going to be an awesome day. […]

Gretta and Pat, Ballara Receptions Eltham

Ballara Receptions Eltham Ballara Receptions Eltham – How much fun was Gretta and Pat’s wedding at Ballara Receptions? A really committed, excited and engaged (sorry, pun not intended) bridal party and families always means a brilliant day (and creates opportunities for great photos) and Gretta and Pat’s was no exception. Lots of attention to detail meant everything from the Mariana Hardwick dress to the personalised candy jars was carefully thought through and put into place, and Pat’s and the band’s […]
