Samantha contacted me in August 2015 and her enthusiasm and excitement for her wedding were very contagious! Their chosen venue, Evedon Park Bush Resort in Burekup (down near Bunbury) was an amazing choice. They had some ideas for which photos they wanted, but they also were very happy to allow me to add my own artistic flair to their special day!
The months passed, and we kept in occasional contact, Samantha’s excitement growing with each passing month!
The day finally arrived!! I met with Samantha and her bridal party to photograph their preparations. Her dress is my favorite wedding dress so far and suited her completely, I couldn’t pass up a cliche window dress photo! Samantha chose a stunning soft pastel bouquet of roses, and they only had a small bridal party consisting of a groomsmen, a bridesmaid, ring bearer and an adorably shy little flower girl.
Being walked across the bridge and up to the ceremony by her area by her beaming Dad, Samantha looked the perfect bride in the late afternoon sun that shone across the lake at the resort. The ceremony area itself is perfectly set up to accommodate for groups, with an auditorium style set up with seating on a slope meaning that everyone could see! It also made for a perfect group photo at the end!
After their ceremony, where they exchanged very special vows, and after their signing they were surrounded by their loved ones for congratulations! This gave me a perfect opportunity to capture those precious candid moments between everyone, some of my favorite moments.
Following this, I stole the couple away and we spent about half an hour around the grounds of the resort getting their bridal photos. We had a lovely range of locations to choose from and the golden glow as the sun set was a perfect backdrop! Just as the sun was setting we finally arrived back at the reception venue and they were introduced to their guests.
One of my favorite ceremonies to date and such an in love and happy couple, I wish you both all the very best for your lives ahead of you! <3 :)
