I couldn’t wait to share this wedding. As my last one for 2012, it was a fantastic day to finish with. From the gorgeous couple and their warm family and friends, to the amazing styling and details – which were painstakingly put together by the bride and family. The weather reports leading up to the day weren’t promising – in fact, there were thunderstorms and rain predicted right up until the day before. Waking up on the morning of the wedding was slightly stressful, as the rain looked to have settled in for good (or bad). Windscreen wipers were needed on the drive to Pennyroyal Otways Retreat, where the couple got ready from. Thankfully, once we arrived, the weather gods looked after us. Working with the ever talented Marcus from C2 Video, meant loads of fun, and creativity as usual. The ceremony was held at Cumberland River Beach, with the beautiful sea, and cloud scattered sky as a backdrop.  Afterward, we all headed off to Old Lorne Road Olives for canapes and drinks – which we also took advantage of photographically (as well as a much needed double espresso!). The venue was held back at Pennyroyal Otways Retreat, with a gloriously decorated marquee nestled in the valley below. All I can say is wow. I think I’ll let the images tell the rest…
