Bendooley Estate Wedding | Caitlin + Rob

It’s no secret that a Bendooley Estate wedding in autumn is my happy place. In May I spent a wonderful autumn day with Caitlin, Rob + their families and friends, and their Bendooley Estate wedding. Here are some reasons why this day was perfect. 

A perfect Bendooley Estate wedding

1. The temperature. Autumn in the Highlands is perfection: not too hot nor cold. Shirt weather in the daytime, and cool enough at night to put on something warm and sit by the fire. This was the case at this Bendooley Estate wedding. 
2. That damn fireplace. Normally when the guests start eating, I finally get a chance to stop and sit down for half an hour or so. I get a glass of red and head straight to the fire.
3. Rob + the boys got ready at my house! Like, literally. Michelle and I own a set of cottages in Bowral called Birchgrove; we reckon they’re a wonderful place to get ready on the day of your wedding. This was actually the first time I’d photographed a bridal party getting ready at Birchgrove, which was pretty cool.
4. Caitlin + Rob. Two very chilled people who I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with. If there was any stress at all, I really couldn’t tell. I felt welcomed amongst their family and friends.
5. The Cadillac. What an awesome car. You can scroll down for photos, but to give you an idea, the boys rocked up in what is basically my dream vehicle. I’m not sure how practical it would be for a wedding photographer to get around in a convertible Caddy, but hey, one can dream.
6. The food. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to come inside in the evening from the crisp autumn air and feast upon the incredible things that the kitchen manages to create at every Bendooley Estate wedding that I attend. My personal favourite: the arancini balls.
