Let’s talk about the weather…..

We expect everyone is very happy that we’ve all enjoyed a lovely sunny weekend after a long cold winter! However, we do live in Melbourne and we all know that means rain can happen at any time whether it’s supposed to be Summer or not! Melbourne is very much like our native UK where you have to be prepared for any weather and especially on such an important day as your wedding! We’ve been very lucky over the years that we have (touch wood!) only had a few very rainy days, most of the time it will have cleared by the...

Michelle & Martin’s Wedding

We caught up with Michelle and Martin recently to present their wedding photos to them! They were very excited to see them after their honeymoon in Europe visiting family in two countries and exploring a few more. We also were away during their trip visiting the UK and as chance would have it we were on the same flight out of Melbourne! Knowing they would be visiting family we had printed out a few pictures and handed over the surprise package to them at the airport, it was so lovely to be able to do this for them! We were so lucky with the...

Michelle & Martin – Sneak Peak

We were so lucky yesterday with some glorious winter sun for Michelle and Martin’s wedding at Summerfields Estate on the Mornington Peninsula.  Unfortunately the ground was still too wet after a week of rain to have the ceremony outside but we were able to go to a nearby beach for photos and then catch the last of the light down by the lake at Summerfields. Here is one shot from the beach yesterday and more to follow when Michelle and Martin have seen the rest…..which will be a few weeks as they are off to visit family overseas in...

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....

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...

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...

Sneak peek! Katrina and Luke were married yesterday! The rain cleared up for their wedding at the picturesque Poet’s Lane estate in the Dandenongs.  The ceremony took place in the chapel and the photographs were taken around the beautiful gardens. Katrina and Luke couldn’t stop smiling all day but they had some quiet time during the photos to chat over their day whilst we captured them in the stunning scenery. Here is one lovely tranquil shot from yesterday and more to come when they have seen them!  ...
