Tessa and Dan were married on Sunday at the gorgeous Inglewood Estate in Kangaroo Ground, just outside of Melbourne. The day was intimate and special, attended by their closest friends, family and a small bridal party. Tess looked incredible in her Gwendolynne designed dress, and oh my goodness these two were an absolute DREAM to photograph!
After the ceremony, guests headed up the hill to the reception to be entertained by the 5 piece band, ‘Like This‘, who are super talented – and got everyone up dancing. The reception was a cocktail affair which was perfect for a mild evening outside. Guests played lawn games, sipped champagne and listened to the sweet sounds of Like This, making it a perfect end to an amazing day! A beautiful, emotional day that I was privileged to capture. Tess and Dan, thank you so much for having me. I hope you are having an amazing honeymoon in Thailand! xx
To be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest! I absolutely love finding endless inspiration on any topic under the sun, and I love the ability to organise your pins into different boards. It’s an amazing tool, when used correctly. If I don’t use Pinterest with a purpose, it’s can be a huge time suck! It’s a bit like turning into Alice down the rabbit hole of Wonderland. One minute you are searching for inspiration for a recipe, and suddenly an hour (or 3) later you’re looking at beautiful houses and holiday destinations, and wonder where that time went!
After a whirlwind few weeks with weddings, a trip to NZ, and my photography workshop, Planted with Light, Sam and I were blessed to spend a few days on the Gold Coast, before heading back to Melbourne. Sam actually had a Science Conference to attend at Kingscliff. My only job was to sunbathe, relax, and unwind! To say it was bliss would be an understatement. I don’t have many photographs, as I was focusing on truly being present, to soak up and enjoy everything with my eyes, not just my camera…
Although, I did take a few iPhone pictures which I wanted to share. To forever remember that no matter how busy life gets, we should always make time to relax and do nothing. Something about being close to the ocean is just so refreshing for my soul! I loved swimming in the surf, the salt spray on my face, and drifting to sleep to the sound of waves crashing outside our window. After only a few days, we both came away refreshed and re-energised.
I feel privileged and beyond blessed to be living my dream, photographing many amazing couples and beautiful weddings around the world. I'm passionate about giving couples remarkable experiences that enrich lives and go beyond beautiful photographs. True love is a big deal!
