My first Growwild Wedding.
When I was 7 years old, and on a spur of the moment, spit-second decision during a vacation to canberra, Mum and Dad bought a small, overgrown, ramshackle cottage in the Southern Highlands, and decided to move the family from Sydney.
25 acres of bush, some goats, donkeys, a few old sheds, some old tractors, and the house. I remember as a kid it was pretty epic; playing soldiers with my brother in the bush, riding around an old motorbike, playing with baby goats. Eventually Mum and Dad decided to turn the property into a native wildflower farm, and Growwild was born. And then, after my brother and I both had our own weddings on the property, another idea formed… and Growwild became a wedding venue.
A Growwild Wedding
I can’t properly relay to you how proud I was to arrive at Growwild the morning of this wedding; to see all the hard work that Mum and Dad have put in, and to see all that hard work pay off. I’m proud of them; I’m proud of what they’ve done with the property, and I’m very happy that my first wedding at Growwild was with the two lovely humans in these images below. I absolutely love that Growwild has indoor and outdoor ceremony locations. In fact, it has two fantastic indoor options just in case of rain. You could have the ceremony inside the converted barn, or inside the marquee itself.
If you’re having a Growwild wedding and you’re looking for a wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you.
