I began a new season yesterday with Brent and Melissa’s Inverloch Wedding. To be honest, I’m not sure I was ready to give up my winter hibernation and return to work – especially when the forecast was for constant showers and gale force winds. Nevertheless I packed my kit and headed down to the beautiful Bass Coast, looking forward to the day ahead. Fortunately the weather behaved itself most of the day. While the ceremony was forced inside, we were able to spend quite a bit of time outside for the location shoots. This included a pit stop at Inverloch’s Gusto for some of the best wedding day gelato you’ll ever taste. All in all, it was quite a relaxed way to begin what looks like being an incredibly busy wedding season!

I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions, however around this time each year I promise myself that I will blog more of the incredible weddings that I shoot each season. In keeping with this non resolution style promise, Camillo and Yasmine’s beautiful Campbell Point House wedding can now be found here. It was a pleasure to shoot at one of Victoria’s most iconic boutique wedding locations and an even greater delight to be able to capture the day’s events for such a generous and loving couple as Cam and Yas.

I honestly can’t believe that it is December already! Where has this year gone? I’ve just returned from an incredible day shooting Josh and Franki’s Great Ocean Road Wedding. It was a very tender and intimate affair, held at the picturesque Wongarra Truffle Farm. After the ceremony, we walked the length and breadth of the farm. We explored the hazlenut trees with their attendant pigs, and took in some majestic oceanic views. Finally we headed down to Skenes Creek for a few more shots before returning to the farm for some delicious in house catering. What a great day! We are truly lucky to enjoy a region like the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, the photographic opportunities are endless. And I myself have been fortunate enough to shoot quite a few weddings down that way recently. Aisha and Virginia’s Lorne Wedding still rates as one of my all time favourites.

As we quickly approach the end of the year I’ve been looking back at the 36 weddings I’ve shot so far. It’s impossible to not feel grateful for the continued faith and trust shown to me by my clients. I have so many great memories from 2016, and have enjoyed so many varied weddings and celebrations. The thought, effort and creativity that alot of you put into your planning is staggering! To all my 2017 clients, I can’t wait to share in your day. I look forward to capturing all of the happiness and excitement as you continue the next part of your journeys. It’s already looking like being a huge year (beginning with yet another Great Ocean Road wedding) , and it feels quite strange to already have bookings for 2018. But then, that’s the nature of the game! Have a fantastic Holiday season, and thank you for your support.
