I remember heading to this part of Australia as a kid to go skiing. We’d drive up, put the chains on the car, head over to Perisher for a few days. I’d certainly never been to the Snowies in summer and didn’t realise how awesome it is. This Lake Crackenback Resort wedding was the perfect opportunity for me to explore Australia’s Snowy Mountains in a much more forgiving season.
A Lake Crackenback Resort wedding
Lake Crackenback Resort is a pretty special set of cottages right in the mountains. Because it’s right in the mountains, it kinda feels like a slightly less green version of Switzerland. Anna + the girls got ready in one cottage; Rick + the boys in another. The ceremony was on one of the golf course lawns overlooking a lovely pond.
One of the wonderful things about a Lake Crackenback Resort wedding is that, after the ceremony, you have the entire property at your disposal for photos. This includes the entire golf course. There’s a bunch of cool old sheds with lovely texture, numerous bushy areas, open fields, creeks and hidden spots that you can find. It’s a wedding photographer’s dream!
I do love a mismatched bridal party
One interesting thing you might notice about this wedding is the mismatched bridal party numbers. This is in fact become very common now, and is a fact lots of the couples I chat with seem to be quite worried about. Around 25% of the weddings I shoot have mismatched numbers bridesmaids vs groomsmen. I don’t feel this takes away from the dynamic in any way, and can actually look really cool.
I hope you enjoy this Lake Crackenback wedding. This place is awesome! Accordingly, if you’re getting married at this wonderful venue and are looking for a photographer, I’d love to hear from you!
