Moonan Brook Cottage is a fairly new wedding venue on offer in the Upper Hunter. I attended its first open day…back in the days when I was a local and was able to see this place in full wedding glory. So when Chloe contacted me to book her date I was super excited to be able to document a wedding there. To be quite honest I was a bit worried about how much greenery we would have to use on the day. As I was driving to the venue seeing the harsh drought the Hunter had been going through was a bit depressing. I thought this is going to be a dry looking shoot. Amazingly though as I approached the cottage there were areas of green throughout the grounds.
Chloe and her crew were nice and chilled out on arrival which is always a good start and they did a great job helping me out with detail shots throughout the morning……cheques are in the mail girls hahaha.
Sam and the boys came just before the ceremony for some getting ready shots and we certainly had some laughs with being a bit silly. Sam hates getting photos done as many grooms do but his mates and his boys did well getting him giggling and enjoying the experience. The rain started softly coming down just as the ceremony was going to kick off but it didn’t cause too much drama, it was only light. The ceremony was lovely and heartfelt with their kids being part of the proceedings, it was really special. The rain continued into our location time but I hardly noticed cause the fun and laughs we had with the whole party was fantastic. These guys were happy to pose cheekily and try many crazy things for great photos. Can’t ask for a better group of people to work with than these guys.
All in all it was a really great day for all. They had done the venue up with great detail and it was wonderful to be able to kick of my experiences shooting here, hope to get another opportunity in the future. So without further ado here is the visual story of Chloe and Sam’s Wedding day. Enjoy
