Saturday I travelled to the picturesque Hunter Valley to the suburb of Black Hill for Kieren (KK) & Stacey’s wedding at KK’s brother, Storm and Nat, my twin sisters lovely home.
Stacey decided to match the environment with Native flowers. With a photographers creative touch, I designed my first wedding bouquet and button holes for the family…A bit different to a regular day in the life of a photographer!After some much needed rain overnight, the clouds disappeared to reveal a glorious sunny day.
KK and Stacey wanted their ceremony to be followed by a relaxed cocktail reception, all at the one location. Nat & Storm’s home is on a few acres, overlooking a gorgeous dam with a great spot for a marquee and fit the bill perfectly. Local friends helped out with photo locations, making the day silky smooth.
The bridal party were such a big help to KK & Stacey and made the photo shoot hilarious & memorable. Thanks guys so much! It was so much FUN!
A highlight of the day was Stacey’s son Ethan entertaining the crowd with an impromptu rendition of “Happy” picking up the microphone while Stacey and KK were signing the register. Ethan sang while the guests clapped, totally impromptu, totally adorable.
KK & Stacey also wanted lots of photos of their guests having a great time. Being a twin of one of the bridesmaids meant I was there to capture all the night time celebrations. KK & Stacey hired an amazing band called Kings Road who played a lot of hits from the 90’s & 2000’s. Yes, these guys were AWESOME! With the weather dropping in temperature the guests need no further encouragement to dance all night.
Thanks KK & Stacey and their families for such an amazing night.
