I love travelling Europe and the UK to see all the gorgeous historical buildings and countryside. I could have been fooled into thinking I was in England when we arrived at St Aidan’s Anglican Church in Exeter in the Southern Highlands. Celeste and Dean also chose to have a Sylvan Glen Winter Wedding because the property looks beautiful in all seasons!
Both locations are picture perfect! The ceremony was very uplifting with everyone in the church singing loudly and with very happy hearts for this couple! Deane was very cool, calm and collected and I loved that he comforted Celeste during the ceremony when she was overwhelmed with what was being said. It is evident this couple care for each other deeply.
The photo location of choice was in front of the wonderful Sylvan Glen Estate in Wingello. Celeste fell in love with photos I took for another one of my clients on that dirt road and just HAD to have the same location. We were blessed with absolutely glorious weather and very lucky the rain the day before had not made the road muddy. After spending some time on the road we headed to the gorgeous guest house and then into the reception where some very heartfelt speeches were shared. A buffet dessert was totally demolished and everyone was on the dance floor burning off all those calories! The whole day had an amazing feel to it! Congrats to the wonderful couple on an amazing day.
When Celeste first wrote to me she told me that photos were very important to her and her family and that she loved the natural feel of the photos in my portfolio. So you can imagine the pressure I was feeling to make sure everything was perfect! Celeste and I spent hours on Facebook chatting about the day and ideas for photos. This all translated into me having a better understanding of her and what I could do for her on the day. I was beside myself when I received these comments from her after seeing the full gallery last night. “You captured everything perfectly. The candid shots were incredible!”
