This was my last wedding BC (before corona)… Those were the days! Yet another wedding where I felt like I was a friend/guest and not a stranger! Jamie-Lee and Tyron got married in the beautiful small town of Gundagai on a gorgeous Autumn day!! They were surrounded by their family and friends and I could tell how loved they are. We got to explore some beautiful locations and I’m so thankful I got to capture those moments.
Thank you Mr & Mrs Gorman for having me, it was a pleasure.

I had a beautiful start to the wedding season for 2020 by having the privilege of photographing Gabrielle & Jeffrey’s wedding day. The whole day was very relaxed with the bride and groom each taking it slow and getting ready with their families. With Gabrielle arriving in style in her dads Ford Courier (with a statue of a Magpie strapped to the bonnet I must add!), the ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful Magpies Nest Restaurant and once again we had a lovely sunset over the vines and olive trees! The rest of the night was spent dancing up a storm on the dance floor!
It was a beautiful day, thank you Gabrielle and Jeffrey for having me.

Mr and Mrs Green!! I started the day by visiting the boys at a beautiful pub in the centre of Rutherglen – The Victoria Hotel. There were so many beautiful spots to photograph there and the boys were troopers! I then headed down the road to Tuileries Winery Rutherglen where the girls were getting ready and also where the ceremony and reception was. What a beautiful place to get married! Josie was surrounded by all of her beautiful sisters and closest family. It was such a relaxed morning filled with laughs! A quick stop before the ceremony where Lucas and the groomsmen were having a quiet beer at the Rutherglen Brewery with some of the guests – such a good idea. With the weather behaving itself thank goodness, apart from the wind) – the ceremony got underway. After some family photos we ventured out to some gorgeous locations around the winery, everything was super close so we had so much time to have fun and get LOTS of shots. The night wrapped up with lots of dancing (after some sneaky sunset shots in the vines of coarse!)
Thank you so much for having me Josie and Lucas, you made me feel very welcome and relaxed!
Best of luck to both of you, I look forward to seeing where life takes you.

A couple of weeks ago I was given the privilege of photographing the wedding of Kelly & Mark and boy was it a fun day! Kelly & Mark did things differently on their big day – they got ready together with their bridal party, we then ventured out into West Wyalong & Wyalong (which I discovered is in fact a seperate place than West Wyalong and not just a shortened name!) and then we hung out at The Royal Hotel Pub where they had some quiet drinks before heading to their ceremony in the park across the road. After the ceremony everyone headed back to the pub where the party started! I just want to thank Kelly & Mark for putting their trust in me as we battled the wild weather! Heat, flies, a little bit of rain and a massive dust storm!
I hope you guys had a wonderful day and I wish you both all the best for the future.
Thanks for having me, enjoy xx

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the wedding of Shantelle & Nathan on the weekend and it was such a magical day for a country wedding! I have to mention that all of the bridal party made me feel very welcome, thank you guys. It was a beautiful ceremony down by the river at Euberta with Shantelle & Nathan’s closest friends & family (including their beautiful dog Dinky!) From there we headed back to where Shantelle & Nathan’s horses were to get some photos with them which was one of the first things planned when I sat down with these two, they LOVE their animals. – I’m a dog mum myself so I completely understand! After some fun on the bridal party bus & a couple more photo locations ticked off we headed back to the reception at the Collingullie Football Oval where Mr & Mrs Lord were welcomed by their lovely guests who were ready to celebrate!!
It was a great day/night, thank you for choosing me to tell your story guys!

Wow, where do I start!? I’ve known Jo for a while now, hanging out for a week each year at Country Hope Camp (if you’ve never heard of it, look it up it’s an amazing organisation) and when she asked me to photograph her wedding I was absolutely honoured. Simon and Jo are made for each other, they are both fun, crazy (in a good way!) and love their families more than anything. I think that was the main thing I took away from this wedding. Every single second of their day was spent with people from their HUGE families or good friends. It was really inspiring to watch how much love they shared for every guest at their wedding. They didn’t want a fuss, they just wanted to spend their day with the people they love and it was beautiful to witness. Simon and Jo I wish you both all the best for the future and I can’t wait to watch your marriage blossom!
Thank you for having me.

The Kendall wedding. This one was a different one and I loved it. Skye and Chris had a ‘first look’ in the morning before the ceremony. For those that don’t know what that is, they both got ready and then we headed out to a beautiful property where they saw each other before they were married. It was full of emotions – nerves, excitement and happy tears! We then took some beautiful bridal party photos and then headed to the ceremony and reception!
Skye and Chris I wish you all the best, thank you for letting me be a part of your special day and making me feel like a guest!

What a day for a wedding! It was a bit nerve wracking in the lead up to this beautiful wedding as at one point there was 40mm of rain predicted!! Nothing was going to stop Kimmie and Callum enjoying their day though so a plan B was put in place! Turns out it was beautiful weather for a ceremony next to the vines! Big props to Kate and Nick from The Wild Vine for changing the ceremony from inside to outside in under an hour!! Amazing. We got some lovely shots before the weather decided we’d had our fun and the rain started! I’ll never forget the mean looking clouds and how happy and content Kimmie and Callum were to be standing under them! (Legends)
Thanks for having me and making me feel so welcome guys, all the best for the future.

Beth & Daniel chose a cracking day to get married! A very warm March Saturday at the beautiful Nulumeah with a stunning view overlooking Wagga. The whole day was so relaxed and I felt like a guest myself! (it’s the best when that happens!) The bridal party was very fun to photograph and the reception dance floor was well used! (You’ll see for yourself if you scroll to reception photos)
Thank you for having me Mr & Mrs Nisbet! Wishing you all the best for you future.

I was delighted to be asked to photograph Sarah and Zacks wedding at the start of this month and it was such a magical day! It rained all morning up until Sarah was walking down the isle with her father Scott, and then when the ceremony began it cleared up and stayed clear, hallelujah! We had such a fun shoot with the bridal party and an amazing sunset over the wheat paddock and the beautiful Millwood Lane.
I wish Sarah and Zack all the happiness in the world and can’t wait to follow their journey together.

Another day that was forecasted to be raining and windy that ended up being beautiful! We got so lucky!! With some lovely locations including the beautiful Mt. Erin Chapel and the spontaneous decision to get some photos at the Wagga lagoon, the day was great! I went to school with Lachlan and the groomsmen so I knew that the bridal party would be a fun one! The girls topped it off and Georgia was such a beautiful bride! If someone had of told me back in school that I would be photographing my schoolmates weddings I would have told them they’re crazy! When I looked around the reception room I realised I had photographed 3 of my schoolmates weddings that were all there at the time, how special is that!!
Lachlan and Georgia, thank you for letting me capture your special day and I wish you both all the happiness in the world and can’t wait to see where life takes you.

With the weather forecasted to be quite cool, windy & rainy the day was the complete opposite. It was such a lovely March day and the sun stayed shining for us until an absolutely beautiful sunset over the vines. Sarah & Austin were so lovely to photograph and I wish them all the best with the future, especially parenthood which is coming up!

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, nothing can beat a country farm wedding under the stars with a magical sunset & fairy lights! Stacey & Sam were just so relaxed which made me so relaxed! Honestly, I felt like I was their friend! – That’s how it should be! It was a hot March day but it was absolutely perfect! The bride & groom did things on the day exactly how they wanted to which just made things work so well and cruisy!
Thanks again for having me Stacey & Sam and congratulations!!
