I always see the bridal party photo session as an opportunity for them to have some fun and show off their skills, and that's exactly what happened during Hannah and Oliver's wedding at Bendooley Estate in the gorgeous southern highlands. Here's proof that bridesmaids have skills beyond holding bouquets!
Weddings are quite rightly about having a damn fine party with those who are closest to you. But sometimes not everyone can make it and we quite often hear mention of grandparents who are no longer with us or just too frail to make the journey.
During Chloe and Josh's reception, however, we heard about how their beloved "babies" aka Chubbs and Mr Chow couldn't attend. Well that's what they thought until a surprise gift photo was revealed showing their gorgeous canines wearing party hats and ready to get down! It was a fantastic moment that gave us some priceless expressions!
"Our wedding photos are absolutely amazing! Every time we share the photos with our family and friends they are also amazed at your work. We honestly can't thank you both enough and we are so glad we rightly entrusted you with capturing our day. You did this perfectly. Although I think it will be difficult to select our favourite photos (they are all so beautiful!), we can't wait to start designing the album. Thanks again for your fantastic work!"
Meet AJ and Jo aka AJO. They're a super creative and adventurous couple and were determined to do things a little differently for their wedding, so they had a first look (during which time this shot was taken - btw check out AJ's salmon pink blazer!), followed by a ceremony at AJ's family home, and a reception at Killcare Surf Club. They didn't have a wedding cake (opting instead for a dessert table with half a dozen different cakes - YUM!) and rather than having a first dance they surprised their guests by bursting into song and inviting their guests to have the first dance! Now that's what I call going down a different path!
"Hi Milton and Amy, the sneak peeks are beyond AMAZING! Honestly we owe you guys the biggest thank you for last Friday, it was everything we hoped for and you were both so amazing to have around and made everything feel so natural and I think it definitely comes across in the photos!
We have had so many comments on how great you guys were especially catching some much anticipated snaps on the dance floor and you just made the day feel so authentic - exactly how we wanted!
Thank you to you both so much again, we definitely hit the jackpot with you guys and we can't wait to see our image gallery in a few weeks. I am sure if these photos are anything to go by they will be beautiful!
"Milton and Amy!
"Wow! Thank you so much for being part of our special day and capturing such amazing shots!! We are so stoked with the sneak peeks and can't wait to see the rest of them!
Thank you for both being there to capture the day and doing it in a way that made both of us so comfortable. We really appreciated your style and authenticity."
