This is a blog post about my first Biota Bowral wedding. What was once a wine bar called The Manning is now a pretty incredible fine-dining restaurant called Biota that only does a handful of weddings each year. This means that each of those weddings is pretty special.
The food at a Biota Bowral wedding is insanely good
Let’s get straight to the point here: if you have a Biota Bowral wedding, you’re going to be eating some seriously good food. Like, the food at this place is absolutely incredible! But if you’re considering getting married here, I think you already know this. I think this venue offers some of the best wedding food you could eat, period. The sharing menu is amazing: people are able to get a plate, head to the central table, grab the food they want and go eat.
Lester and Kate had their ceremony at Biota too; under a lovely tree, with 100 or so of their friends and families. I’m very grateful that I got the chance to shoot my first Biota Bowral wedding with these two and their lovely guests.
Lester + Kate’s ‘first look’ at their Biota Bowral wedding
We in fact shot all of Kate + Lester’s portraits before the ceremony. In the wedding industry we call this a ‘first look’. I love shooting first looks as I get to control the exact moment the groom sees the bride. It’s in a private setting without 100 people watching. I get to choose the exact location and make sure the light is perfect. It also benefits the couple as by the time the ceremony comes around, they’re just that little bit less stressed as they’ve already met up. They’ve already seen each other, and already had all their photos. All that’s left to do is drink, party and be merry.
I’ve shot a few other Biota weddings. You might like to have a look at Alee + Scott’s Biota wedding here. If you’re getting married at Biota and are looking for a wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
