I still think of myself as a small town country boy at heart. Growing up in Muswellbrook in NSW helped me to learn how to take things slow and appreciate iconic Australian country themes. Old wooden fences, big gum trees and rusted crusty shed still make me smile.
That’s why when I met up with Rachel and Chris before their wedding I was super excited about what I heard. The boys did all of their preparations at the iconic Kenilworth pub with cool opportunities for creative light and interesting backgrounds. The girls were in the cabins on the farm with a very special entry on the back of a tractor.
I loved the ceremony location, all tucked underneath some beautiful big trees providing perfectly clean light. We then had an opportunity to grab some shots in the creek out back with the couple rowing out in an old dingy.
The rustic old barn was the perfect ending to the day. The couple had a few quick speeches and food coming around all night. It let everyone spend the evening catching up and having a good time rather than sitting through hours of formalities.
The more relaxed the guests can be the better opportunities exist for getting fun and candid photos into the night. This crew was super relaxed and it gave a great feeling to all the photos.
We had a sparkler exit as well that topped the night off perfectly. It is not the easiest thing to organise at the end of the night with everyone usually quite lubricated. But, we made it happen and everyone was very happy with the result.
Another rad day spent with beautiful people in a lovely location. Every wedding is special in its own way. The main thing is to be true to yourselves and think about what represents you as a couple.
