I have a lot of favourite wedding venues in and around Sydney but this was my first Stanwell Tops Wedding at Tumbling Waters Retreat. I can honestly say that this venue is in my Top Five! Tumbling Waters Retreat has relaxed bush surrounds with a stunning view over Stanwell Beach. Having such an affectionate and committed couple to photograph made it even better!
I don’t think I have ever cried when the bride was walking down the aisle. I’ve sobbed during speeches/vows but when the bagpiper led the bridal party toward the aisle, the waterworks started! I have Scottish heritage and those bagpipes evoked some strong emotions and I loved every second of it! There were a lot of Scottish relatives at the wedding and I could see they were loving it too! This wedding was certainly emotional and it wasn’t just because of the bagpipes. It was the third wedding in 20 months for the Baker family and the last of their boys to be married.
Guests came from all over the world including Canada, UK and Sweden. There was so much joy and happiness from everyone, especially Michael as he had tears of joy for half of the day! I always love a groom who is not afraid to show his feelings. It was very heartwarming to see how close the Bakers are.
