I don’t believe I have ever seen a wedding quite like this one. It was Saturday the 29th of October and this was a wedding where no stone had been unturned. Every detail of the day had been thought about and styled so beautifully and the property that they held this wedding at was naturally so picturesque that all of the elements came together to create the perfect celebration for this lovely young couple.
I first became known to Rhiannon and Shane when I shot Shane’s brother’s wedding… that’s the Jess and Rod wedding shoot. Rhiannon had got into contact not long after to discuss the possibility of shooting at her wedding the following year. Of course I was stocked to be asked. Funnily enough her best friend Lauren purchased a gift voucher off me to give to Rhiannon and Shane for a family shoot as well which was great cause it allowed us to get to know each other in how we work before the wedding day. Originally I was to only shoot location shots after the ceremony but Lauren being the amazing friend she is warned her that not having the day well documented could very well bring a lot of regret in the future….well done Lauren!! the cheque is in the mail hahaha. So in the end I was lucky enough to be asked to cover the whole event and I was so excited to be able to see and document the day as it unfolded because I knew this was going to be something really special.
Everything went so well ….even forming the love heart out on the lawn took only a minute or two……I expected this to be very tricky but groomsman Pat Faras took it upon himself to try to get it right form ground level and I don’t know how he managed to get it 95% right as we didn’t really communicate throughout his arranging…he just did it! When he was done I only had to move a few people slightly to get it looking as it should so well done Pat…your a legend!
The wedding party were fantastic at going along with some antics along the way which was great for keeping the shoot upbeat and there were so many great locations to shoot in this property we could have kept shooting for another hour I recon but the reception awaited our presence. The ride on the back of the ute to the reception was great fun, the stuff memories are made of and I’ve certainly gained some great memories from this wedding.
The reception hall was decked out to the nines in gorgeous fresh flowers done by Shane’s mum and the large intertwining twig letters were done by Rhiannon ….there was some serious inside talent on display here. There was also a photo booth that they had created for the event and the guests had a fabulous time trying on different costumes to get their funny shots done. What better way to top the night off than with a fireworks display over the lake, it was just a stunning wedding all round. I’m so honored to have been a part of it and I wish these guys all the best in their future as husband and wife. Here is what I captured that day. Enjoy
