There’s something magical about these two that makes you feel like you’re floating on a cloud…ahhhh, they are just the best humans! And those who are reading this – and know them… are now smiling from ear to ear.We had such an amazing time at their wedding. The weather was perfect, golden light and high vibes at night.

We were shooting in our own backyard – a dream that all Hunter Valley Wedding photographers wish for, and one would say quite easy for us to get creative with our photography by using some of the best natural light locations this are has to offer.

The perfect shaded wedding ceremony location this location has to offer. What a dream venue!

Wallalong House is one of those venues that has a bit of extra sparkle in its starry appearance. It is magnificent under the night sky, and it was so perfect home base to celebrate this special wedding day with two amazing people. The weather on this warm, spring afternoon just sat perfect between acoustic tunes and cold cocktails, while kids run around the bases of the Morton Bay Fig trees that set out the estate’s garden ceremony location.

The venue itself has remained the same since the lade 1800’s, with areas of it and the gardens been converted from an old Victorian estate, to a more modern styled, luxury home – pool included.

I had been waiting for this weekend since I captured the engagement photography (which was also the most fun!) out at Walka Works Wedding venue in Oakhampton, NSW.

It was a true celebration with me feeling like I hit the jackpot as I made some new photography friends, great drinks and awesome acoustic tunes. The ceremony led by the gorgeous Julie Muir, had all the laughs thanks to her Irish ways, as well as the important parts of this couples dating adventures. To top it off – it included a surprise witnessing choosing for the signing of legal paper work, giving the punters an opportunity to present on the main stage!

But that’s enough for me. They do say a picture says a thousand words, and we have close to that in visuals. Last but not least – another huge thank you to all the wedding vendors on this wedding… it’s so great to be constantly working alongside you all on weddings, elopements and special life events – a job I continue to cherish as the years build.
