When Charlotte’s Mum said the morning of the wedding, that she had slept well the night before, even though the wedding was held on their property, I was fairly confident it was going to be a pretty chilled wedding day…and it was! Charlotte got ready in her family home just metres from where she walked down the aisle while Jake got ready with the lads a few minutes down the road.
The page boys bolted down the aisle as if there was no tomorrow while Charlotte looked radiant, her Dad beamed and Jake as good as good as lost it! – and as Jake’s Dad was the marriage celebrant there was a fair degree of tears flowing under that beautiful bridal rose arch made by the lovely Jacqui Casey.
“I am so excited I get to marry you today and make you mine forever,” said Jake as he popped that ring on her finger. Together they are sure to fulfil their promise of making their home “a warm and happy place open to family and friends”
I loved being part of this happy occasion and thank David Boon for being my second shooter and light wizard!

Arron and Alana – the kind of couple that you would love to photograph every weekend!
They met on a bus travelling around Kangaroo Island – they kept catching each other’s eye and pretending they weren’t actually looking – until it was all too much and they had to talk! Alana decided Arron was from Sydney…little did she know her luck! He was actually an Adelaide boy.
Arron had to be pretty amazing. Alana is a twin to Chloe. They did EVERYTHING together. They even did the same uni degree. So…it takes a force to reckon with that sort of attachment but Arron is so genuine and warm and caring that Alana couldn’t really resist!
I think the photos tell the story of the excitement that filled the air when Alana walked down the aisle at beautiful Ayers House…that moment we all look forward to – and this day met those expectations! As Alana spoke her vows to her “most treasured Arron” and Arron promised to “nurture, care, love and cherish” her, we all felt that that random bus trip wasn’t so random at all. All the singles at the ceremony were busy googling Sealink travel to try their luck!
I must mention the bridal party…they were…awesome! The best man had never been to a wedding before let alone given a speech…you would have never known! Such a fun group of people to spend the day with!
Speccy winter wedding guys!
Verity, and my wonderful second shooter Mel

I almost missed being able to photograph this wedding as I was already booked for the day they had chosen, so when I got a text to say the date was changed I was delighted! After all, it’s not every day I get to photograph a princess so sweet with her handsome prince charming!
It was less than three months since we were last at Jazzy’s house to photograph her brother’s wedding so it has been a big year for the Singhs! They came to the party with their usual gusto and helped put together a fabulous S’Fera’s wedding for their beloved daughter.
The sun shone – and so did the chandeliers, the autumn leaves glowed, the guests laughed, the mothers cried tears of joy – and a wonderful day was had by all!

“All my life”, said Silmara, “I was praying God would send someone who would love and respect me, be my friend, accept the way I am and most importantly be faithful…God was listening to all my prayers” and this pretty much summarises the coming together of this lovely couple as husband and wife. They were worlds apart – distance, language and culture, but Silmara’s travels brought her to Sydney and her workplace brought her to Luke.
The wedding ceremony for this magic day, with so many lovely people all in one place, was held in the beautifully manicured grounds of Eden Gardens, before the reception at the Epping Club . Sparklers on the porch were waived to see these two off on their honeymoon and I think everyone would have said it was a privilege to have been a part of this celebration.

The ‘McNeills’ together in one place doesn’t happen very often due to the distances they live from each other, so when Andy and Amy and family came over from the UK they grabbed the chance to get some family photos while they could. It was Autumn and they chose autumn toned clothes – it worked fabulously!
It’s not an easy gig to get that many children fed and dressed, looking snappy (and happy!) all at the same time but these families did so well and we spent time enjoying the late afternoon in the vineyards, watching the kids have fun and showing me just how much spunk they each had!
A big thank you to Mark and Bek Shaw for the use of their beautiful property at Currency Creek and Jessie for coordinating the occassion.
