I’m super happy to share this Bundanoon marquee wedding with you!
After 11 years shooting weddings around the Southern Highlands, I’m quite familiar with pretty much every venue in the area. Some I’ve shot at 10, 20 times, and others more than 100 (I’m not kidding!). While I never really get bored of shooting weddings at these wonderful venues, it’s definitely refreshing to be involved in a wedding at a completely new place. Luckily there are oodles of farms and big private properties around the Highlands that are perfect for weddings, just like this one. Charlotte and Myles’ Bundanoon marquee wedding was at their beautiful farm just outside of town.
Getting ready for a wonderful Bundanoon marquee wedding
Charlotte got ready at the farm with her family + bridesmaids – just a few metres from the wonderful marquee erected on the front lawn for the reception. My own wedding was a marquee wedding held in Alpine at the property on which I was raised, so I can really relate to this special feeling of getting married at a place that holds so much history and sentimental value. Myles and his lads got ready around the corner in a very conveniently located airbnb.
I think my favourite part of this Bundanoon marquee wedding was the escarpment we went to for photos. Charlotte has told me about this spot; she used to go there as a kid to explore. It was a short drive from the house. She wanted to know if we could go there for some photos during our portraits; of course, it was fine with me. So after spending some time on the property with the bridal party, we jumped in the car and drove into the National Park next door. After 5 mins we arrived at a tiny carpark, walked for a few metres to the most wonderful Southern Highlands escarpment views. You’ll have to scroll down to see what I mean!
I worked with a wonderful team of vendors at Charlotte + Myles’ wedding. Sue Jackman was the celebrant … ah Sue, you’re wonderful. It’s so nice arriving to a ceremony and seeing your big smile. I love it! Makeup was by Louise Antonjuk, and hair was by Brush Southern Highlands. The amazing flowers below are by Sammy Bate. Charlotte’s amazing dress was by Karen Willis Holmes.
My wife Michelle was also on the tools shooting video. If you scroll to the bottom of my photos you can see her film from the day.
Charlotte, Myles: thank you SO much for having Michelle and I along to document your wedding day. We had a blast with you guys. From the start of the day to end, you made us feel like family. We loved your epic champagne shot, and we loved racing around with you to catch the sunset. Thank you!
