{ 2015 in Review } Weddings.

Hey there! I'm sure we've all seen the 'best nine' pop up from lots of people on instagram, but when I thought about doing that myself I realised my 2015 couldn't just be summed up in 9 images.

The end of the year is often time for people to say how much they can't wait for it to be over, how next year will be their best one yet and how the year they're about to say goodbye to was not what they expected. All the resolutions they set themselves at the start tend to be forgotten (or lingering in the back of your mind shouting 'failure' at you everytime you think about them), and you're starting to think about what the new year will bring you, what you're going to 'give up' or similar. To me 2016 seems a little daunting.. I know it will bring amazing things, and amazing people to meet, but 2015 really has been pretty damn awesome. So many amazing things happened to me in 2015 that I don't want to say goodbye to just yet!

So, I decided to do a 'Year in Review' post. These are all the weddings I photographed last year. Some of the places I went, and some of the best people I met. Here they are in chronological order.

Lots of love,

{ Stephanie & Tomas } Albert River Winery Wedding

I met Steph through a mutual friend a few years ago, so I was delighted when she & her fiancé Tom asked me to photograph their wedding. Secretly I had been hoping they would! Steph & Tom got the full package, they had an engagement shoot and I was at their wedding from start to finish. I am so glad I was because we got so many awesome photos that wouldn’t have happened if I was only there for half a day.

The styling of this gorgeous wedding was a 50′s glamour theme. Black, white & pale pink. It oozed class and sophistication and was a nice little breakaway from the rustic trend. Steph channeled Audrey Hepburn and had her bridesmaids (her sisters & sister’s in law) in the cutest tea length pink gowns with white fur boleros. The boys looked very dapper in their black tie attire which was the dress code for the wedding. It was lovely seeing guests in formal gowns!
The day went off without a hitch and it was the perfect weather for a beautiful occasion. Albert River Wines was, as usual, gorgeous, and we were blessed with perfect skies and comfortable temperatures.

I enjoyed working along side a wonderful photographer that i’ve called upon to second shoot a couple of times now. Lara covered the bridal party while Steph, Tom & I went off for their couples portraits. This meant that we got even more angles and photos of the day. Adding a second shooter onto your package is a great idea if you're wanting to maximise the amount of photographs you get.

I hope you enjoy looking at these gorgeous photos. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing it and it was an awesome day.
