On Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding day of Dale and Rebecca. It was seriously one of the most fun yet chilled and relaxed weddings I have ever photographed. The day was absolutely stunning. It was super sunny without a cloud in the sky and warm enough to make you forget it was winter. We started the day off with the boys at their home where they were super chilled having a few beverages and watching cheesy movies. They were awesome in front of the camera – relaxed and playful letting us just capture moments as they unfolded. Dale scrubbed up alright in his dark navy suit. After a few snaps it was off to the girls at the Sofitel for their photographs. The girls were so cool, calm and collected. Bec looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous Pronovias gown (from White Lilly Couture) and beautiful hair and makeup from Twidale. And the flowers – they were absolutely stunning! Anna from Flowers by Forrest did an amazing job! After some absolutely stunning photographs we headed off to Hillstone St Lucia for the ceremony.
The beautiful ceremony was held in the courtyard at Hillstone St Lucia. It was such a beautiful, sweet, full of many laughs and even a few tears from Dale as Bec walked down the aisle conducted by the lovely Annie from Annie Grace Ceremonies. I love how personal the vows were and all the little giggles we had along the way. After their union was sealed with a kissed, they were showered with rose petals before being congratulated by family and friends. After a group photo and some family photographs, we headed off to Sherwood for some gorgeous bridal party portraits. We had the most beautiful afternoon sunlight to work with and the Arboretum was the perfect background. Dale and Bec are so cute together – so playful, polar opposites but completely in love with one another. They made it so easy to capture some beautiful photographs.
After the photos it was back to Hillstone where the party began. There was beautiful food, a wonderful dessert buffet and so many big laughs during all of the speeches. Both Bec and Dale spoke and had the room in fits of laughter. After the formalities were over it was downstairs to the library where the Red Tie Band kept the dance floor pumping well into the night.
Congratulations Dale and Bec. Thank you both so much for inviting us to be part of your special day. You made it so easy and made us feel like family. A big thanks for Mary for helping me out throughout the day. Enjoy your honeymoon up north and I can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous photos when you get back!!
