Michelle & Martin

Michelle & Martin

We were wondering if we were going to have to postpone Michelle and Martin’s shoot as it looked as if it was going to pour down! However, by the time we’d had a catch up and a coffee the clouds parted and it turned into a lovely morning! We used the main beach in Mornington as it has some nice feature with boat sheds, rocks and a feature staircase. To give them some variety we also used one of our favourite trees in the park. Michelle and Martin are busy putting the final plans in place for their wedding at Summerfields in July. Let’s hope we get more gorgeous weather for their special day as well!  ...

Katrina & Luke

Katrina & Luke

Katrina and Luke were very excited to see their wedding photos during the week and they went away very happy after reliving their day which they said went by in a blur! Their wedding took place at Poet’s Lane Receptions with the ceremony in the chapel and the photos were all taken in the pretty gardens. There are so many different areas around the property and we’re sure we could have carried on for another hour or so! The sun came out giving the turning leaves a golden glow and there is a stunning backdrop of trees and shrubs surrounding the lawn area. Katrina’s preparations took place at her Mum’s house and Luke and the guys got ready up at Poet’s Lane. They had accommodation for the night before and the night of the wedding for the bridal party and guests, we also understand that the wedding party took over a local restaurant for breakfast the next day! Katrina wore a beautiful dress with a top layer of Italian lace and as you can see in the photos had “Katrina and Luke” printed in her shoes! The ceremony was very personal with nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters giving readings and their friend sang during the service. We just loved Luke’s glances at Katrina during the ceremony which Steve was able to capture from the side, one of the advantages of having two photographers! They had a great bridal party who were game for some fun shots and then we chose some quiet areas for Katrina and Luke’s photos whilst the guests enjoyed drinks and canapes. The reception room was beautifully decorated and the guests enjoyed using the photo booth during the evening followed by some dancing on a very packed dance floor as they have so many friends and family! Katrina and Luke both couldn’t stop smiling and laughing all day, one very happy couple!          ...

Melissa & James

Melissa & James

We always love a wedding at Summerfields but Autumn is a special time of year with it’s soft golden light just at the right time for our couples’ photos! Once again on this particular weekend we were blessed with beautiful weather for Melissa and James’s special day. Melissa’s preparations took place at her parent’s house and we had plenty of time for photos in their gorgeous garden decorated by Melissa’s Mum and with the added swing seat made my James’s Dad. Lots of tears flowed as Melissa’s Dad saw her in her wedding dress for the first time! Felicity Kerr performed the ceremony and then after a few family groups we took Melissa and James down to the lake and the big oak tree for their photos. Melissa was lucky enough to wear two dresses for her big day along with a choice of 3 pairs of shoes but then you can never have enough shoes! She decided to wear a shorter dress for their dance and after what has been probably the most unusual bridal dance we have seen, we now know why! We did a second mini-shoot in the olive grove as the sun was setting and the style of dress gives the photos a totally different feel! They had great party-loving guests who enjoyed the photo booth and their friend took to the stage to sing a few songs along with the band Popcorn. The evening wrapped up with a guard of honour which is always fun to try and...
