Sarah and Ben – The Independent Gembrook Wedding Reception

On a Saturday late in Melbourne’s summer, Sarah and Ben tied the knot at St Cuthbert’s Chapel in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges. Before a photo shoot at Emerald Lake Park and on to an awesome reception at The Independent Gembrook – one of our favourite restaurants in the hills 🙂

Sarah and Ben definitely opted for a low-key approach to photography of their preparations. Following on from that, we headed off to the wonderful little St Cuthbert’s Chapel. Initially an outside wedding was planned, Melbourne was playing her usual summer tricks of “possible showers and thunderstorms”… an inside option was definitely the way to go!

Then it was off to Emerald Lake Park for some bridal party shots before we would our way back to Gembrook, for some more photos and an amazing reception at The Independent Gembrook.

Congratulations Sarah and Ben – hope you had a brilliant day and enjoyed every minute 🙂
