Just over a week ago I had my last wedding before returning to Cambodia. Gemma & Simon’s at “The Graze Willow” tree.
I have done a few weddings at this amazing location. Every time I photograph here I am always so excited. This place has it all, a gorgeous garden for your ceremony, onsite stunning accomadation, incredible food & service & spectacular locations within a few minutes for photographs.
I have known Gemma for a few years now so when she messaged to book in her wedding to Simon I was so excited. Gemma said one of the most important things for their day is the photography.
So when I went back to Australia we met to get the best photography times & locations possible.
Due to Gemma & Simon having their wedding in daylight savings many couples miss the perfect sunset or the best light of the day because their reception starts when the sunlight, sunset is at its best for location, & bridal photography.
We decided to change this a little with Gemma & Simon spending time with their guests for around 40 minutes after family portraits, then heading off with their bridal party for location pictures.
Gemma & Simon wanted to go to their property not far from Willow Tree, which was not only sentimental but just so perfect. So many little spots within a few metres. Then on the way into town we were able to catch the perfect sunset. One of my favourite shots below is on the driveway of Simon & Gemma’s place. I was racing off to the next location when I seen this incredible light & dust made by my car.
So I pulled over & waited for the bridal party to come. This is what I love about weddings, stopping the couple when you see amazing light & capturing incredible moments such as these. I am also grateful to Gemma & Simon for trusting me & my crazy ideas to get shots like this.
Simon & Gemma had the most relaxed, hilarious cocktail reception with great speeches, a great wrap done by Gemma’s bridesmaids & amazing food by “The graze”
Also a huge thanks to my good friend & assistant Mel. It was so lovely to work together & catchup again. You always make my day so fun, so easy when we work together!!
Thanks Gemma & Simon for letting me be part of this incredible day!! I loved it so, so much!
