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.
