Kim and Brenton

Kim and Brenton

Kim and Brenton had a beautiful day for their beachside wedding held at the Portsea Hotel on the Mornington Peninsula, the sea was an amazing aquamarine and you really just wanted to jump into it! Family and friends came from far and wide to attend their special day, including Torres the groomsman who came all the way from the USA complete with cowboy hats! After the ceremony we took Kim and Brenton down to the pier and beach for their photos. The walkway between the two bay beaches has recently been re-modelled and now has some lovely features for photos! At the reception Kim and Brenton had worked very hard creating their beach theme for the room, with table decorations, lovely gifts for their guests and some super glove puppets for the children which they all loved. Kim had also chosen wooden flowers for the bouquets, button holes and decorations. These are really unusual and made of delicate strips of wood layered to create a rose! There were lots of surprises during the day, Kim had prepared a set of photo albums of their story for Brenton which her Dad presented to him whilst he was getting ready. Kim’s Mum had put together a slideshow of Kim growing up which was played during the dance with her Dad……which produced lots of tears! Tristan from Bear Booth photo booth had everyone dressing up and having a laugh whilst DJ Peter D provided the music for dancing the night away. After a relaxing Sunday, Kim and Brenton enjoyed their honeymoon up in Cairns narrowly missing two weather systems and it was nice to see them back so we could present their photos to them!  ...

Charlie!

For those of you who have been married at Summerfields you will know the lovely Sally and Simon. Just before Christmas they welcomed baby Charlie into the family and although he was a little late in arriving, it meant that our shoot was able to be rescheduled to when Sally’s parents were visiting. He was such a good boy whilst having his photo taken although there were a few tears whilst wearing his new footy shirt! We even managed to get Sally and Simon’s bouncy Labrador to pose for a family photo! Here is a selection of photos of the gorgeous...

Amanda & Tate

It was worth the drive through the thunderstorm last night to see Amanda and Tate to present their wedding photos as they were very excited to see them! The weather was very different on their special day when the sun shone with a welcoming cool breeze at Werribee Mansion. Their ceremony was performed by celebrant Ron Gallagher and took place in the gardens with the historic house providing a magnificent backdrop. It was a great day with a number of Amanda’s relatives having come over from the UK and for us to catch up with Tate’s family, having shot his sister Kelly’s wedding a few years ago. Amanda had arranged a lovely surprise for her Mum of a horse and carriage for them to arrive in at the ceremony. Afterwards the guests were able to take rides around the estate for the rest of the afternoon. Amanda and Tate’s friends had worked hard to decorate the Pavilion Room in a vintage style and there was a separate dance floor in a marquee where the Baker Boys had everyone dancing the night away. It was a beautiful Summer’s evening and guests were able to chat outside whilst enjoying a stunning sunset. Their bridal party were lots of fun and kept coming up with suggestions for some silly photos and then we had some quiet time with Amanda and Tate for some stunning photos around the Mansion and grounds. It’s one of those places with so many different areas you can just keep on shooting! However, at some point we did have to let them enjoy their reception which we understand carried on to the early hours of the next morning! We hope you enjoy this selection of images from their wonderful...

We would like to show off the latest addition to our beautiful wedding album range so, for a change, we thought we would feature it in a short video. Like all of our albums, this one is hand-made in Italy and and there is a huge range of choices of colour and material for both the cover and the presentation box. Your photos can be printed onto a variety of paper types and there is even a selection of ribbons to choose for the box! Matching the album to your wedding theme won’t be a problem! We were so impressed when we first saw this lovely wedding book that we decided to include it in our wedding photography package and the reaction from our couples has been amazing, they love it too! Would you like one of these albums for your wedding? Let’s meet up so we can hear all about your...

Brittany & Cory

Brittany and Cory arrived back from their amazing honeymoon in Mexico and the USA just before the Christmas break and we were able to catch up with them last week now things have settled down a little! Having gone away immediately after the wedding they were pleased to see the photos to remind them of their special day. It was a very happy yet emotional day for everyone as they continued their story with their beautiful wedding. The ceremony and reception took place at Ascot House in Melbourne and we loved the old style house with it’s wide verandahs as the weather was due to be pretty bad that day. Fortunately the rain held off and they were able to have the ceremony in the lovely garden at the rear of the property. Ascot House has a number of great spots for photos and they had allowed plenty of time for us to walk around the property making full use of the features for the photographs whilst the guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the front verandah. We also made sure we had plenty of photos of their animals who are very dear to them and once again Astro the poodle was a great subject in front of the camera! It was also lovely to catch up with Cory’s brother and sister-in-law Martin and Belinda, whose wedding we photographed a couple of years ago, and meet their gorgeous cheeky baby! All of Brittany and Cory’s hard work in planning the wedding paid off as it was a fantastic day and went very smoothly.  ...
