I have fond memories of my first introduction with Natalie and Nathan when both were in the wedding party of Jess and Rod Casben, cruising up into the hills of Rod’s Father’s property to to get some great location shots and use the property’s stunning views to their fullest. I was delighted when Natalie (Jess’s sister) got in contact with me to chat about photographing their wedding. I caught up with Nat at Kerv in Scone for a chat about her requirements for the day and I had only just discovered that I was pregnant with bub #2 so I mentioned that but reassured her that it wouldn’t be an issue for the date she had….its always a weird thing to tell clients cause you get the I’m happy for you but is this going to effect me vibe. With Natalie’s date though we had plenty of time so it wasn’t much of an issue here….luckily…anyway enough about me – back to their wedding.
They had their ceremony and reception at the Dartbrook fire station just outside of Scone. The weather came good for us thank god as we had has some drizzley days prior to the big day.
A moment of deja vu occured when Nathan and his crew rode into the ceremony on their dirt bikes, Rod and his groomsman did the same thing on their day. I loved the personal touch on their wedding vows with Natalie declaring ” there will always be bikes and boats” hahaha.
After the ceremony, group and family photos the guys hopped back on their bikes, the girls in the cars and we headed to a friends property not far from the fire station to get the location shots. My first task was getting a shot with all of the guys with their bikes lined up as they had played a special part for the day so that was an important one to get. Once we had that shot they rode off into the distance and the wedding party and I could get to business getting the location shots before the sun went down and it seemed to be going down quite quickly which had me panicking a bit but thanks the cooperation of the crew and an increased ISO occasionally we got there in the end.
Natalie and Nathan were set to spend their honeymoon in New Zealand…I was so jealous, I’ll get back there one day. Many thanks to the newlyweds for giving me the opportunity to capture your beautiful wedding, there were elements of the day that reminded me of my own wedding actually so it was really nice to be there to document the setting and the special events of the day.
I wish you guys and your gorgeous little girls all the very best for your future together. Enjoy
