The absolutely beautiful Tara and Ryan were married on quite a warm (from memory 37 or 38C day) at Lilac Hill Park in Guildford. Such a lovely rural setting so close to the town center. Tara arrived in a beautiful vintage limo and was escorted in by her very proud father! There ceremony was conducted by a good friend and went off without a hitch except for a few bugs and even a spider that made their way up into the layers on Tara’s dress!

After a lovely ceremony surrounded by a very large crowd of their loved ones, it was time to try and get a group photo of everyone! Thankfully there was a fallen tree that I was able to use as leverage to get everyone in frame. Following some congratulations in the shade – assisted by a lot of very cold water bottles, we made our way around the park for the bridal party images. Such a fun bridal party, we got lots of candid and fun photos. Due to the heat, the bridal party stopped for a break in the shade underneath the traffic bridge while I photographed the rings and bouquet. This made for a great photo itself!

A last minute request from the bride and groom saw us trekking through the hay stubble of the nearby paddock to a beautiful big shady tree in amongst the hay bales. What a photo opportunity!

It was then back to their property for the reception where they had a wonderfully large marquee set up for all of their guests, complete with the must have candy bar!

I wish you both the absolute best in your lives together <3
