Hey everyone! I’m stoked to share this wonderful Bendooley Estate Stables wedding with you today.
On a warm January day in 2021, I started out at Amelia’s parents’ place in Bowral to shoot her wedding ready. I was welcomed by a wonderfully friendly bridal party who were a joy to shoot from the word go. My friend Ash Quinn was there doing makeup – it’s always so nice to work with wedding vendors who I know well and with who I have a great working relationship. Courtney Hurst was also there doing hair – her work is wonderful.
I then made my way to shoot Nathan + the boys getting ready. There was a cute dog there – this made me very happy.
The Stables at Bendooley was my next stop. I just adore this venue; it’s so easy to shoot at, the staff are so lovely, and the food is incredible. Pretty much any time of the year, the grounds are amazing for photos. I really love how the ceremony spot is in a nice shaded position. Nina de Borde, also a good industry friend of mine, was the celebrant.
The two best parts of the day for me were as follows: first, Amelia + Nathan’s dog, who attended the ceremony, decided that he wanted to be part of the signing of the marriage register. Second, I witnessed an epic champagne pop during portraits. Scroll down to see both of these!
Amelia + Nathan, thanks so much for having me along to document your wedding day!
