Ash and Mick, Inglewood Estate

Wedding Photography Melbourne, Inglewood Estate

Inglewood Estate

I always know it’s going to be a great day when I arrive at the groom’s house and find a relaxed and happy bunch of guys getting ready, and that was absolutely the case when I met Mick and the guys in a very Eltham-y house in Eltham.

Then I headed down to see bride Ashlee and her lovely family for the girls preparations not far away. And the dog, of course! It was really a contrast in sizes of people – being a “smaller statured” person myself, I felt like a little person among Mick and his family, but I reckon I was almost the tallest at Ash’s place – which is a rare thing for me! We had some fun getting some great getting ready shots and few posed pre-wedding shots before heading off to the lovely Inglewood Estate.

I love shooting at Inglewood Estate – great chapel that’s perfect for either indoor or outdoor wedding, and lots of gorgeous locations around the property for interesting and different images – you could shoot for hours there using different spots and ideas.

But with the sun setting, we didn’t have hours – so it was on to the reception and a rocking band to push the dance floor along. Great day ๐Ÿ™‚ and I think I got some great shots for Ash and Mick.

Inglewood Estate – Laura and Jerome’s Autumn wedding

Inglewood Estate

Raining. Seriously raining, all day, including when I arrived at Inglewood Estate. All day, that is, up until 5 minutes before Laura arrived! The sun broke through and gave us some beautiful light to shoot in as the darkness drew in. A very fun and smiley ceremony between two very happy people, it was just brilliant and a privilege to be a part of.

Jerome and Laura had specifically asked me whether I could come around behind them, and capture their first kiss looking back towards the guests. That was absolutely fine of course, and I think this shot worked out great.

I love this little bridge at Inglewood, although there always seems to be some buy celexa uk faint concern when there are big bridal parties there. It’s a timber bridge and although structurally I’m sure it’s fine it does make some funky noises when you walk across it. Also, to shoot from this angle I’m down in a dry lake bed, which isn’t always that dry …

A May wedding and the ivy was really turning red as winter approached in the Yarra Valley.

This shot really worked that day, you wouldn’t know it but it was pretty much getting dark by the time we got this shot. And I like the detail in the willow tree.Also, because the bouquets were all while, it really worked to have those little bundles of white flowers against the girls’ black lace dresses – the contrasts just make this shot work.

Some late shots with the the beautiful old Jag also meant that the guys could jump in and take a ride up the hill to the reception.
