Michelle & Martin’s Wedding

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 weather on their special day as it stayed calm and sunny which not only meant we were able to get some fantastic images down at Point Leo beach but the lake at Summerfields was like a mirror, so we love all the reflection shots. Venues can look quite different in the winter months but the bare trees around the property give the images a more arty and graphic feel to them! They had hoped to have the ceremony outside but the ground was still a little wet but that is the great advantage of a venue like Summerfields as they have such a beautiful indoor ceremony room as well! Michelle and Martin planned an entertaining day for their guests so whilst we went for photos at the beach the guests enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea followed by drinks and canapes. Michelle had arranged a surprise for the guests and after the main course an Italian chef appeared and started singing! He was followed by his Maitre d’ and they had everyone singing and waiving their napkins in the air! Martin was also invited up to accompany them during one song by playing the triangle! During the rest of the evening the guests enjoyed dancing to the band Popcorn who are fantastic! This is the second time we’ve seen them this year and we can certainly recommend them. Michelle and Martin also had a photobooth and as you can see below everyone had great fun dressing up using the props! Michelle and Martin had a wonderful wedding day at Summerfields looked after by Joyce and her amazing team and here are a few images from the day!      ...

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...

Bridie & Christian

Bridie & Christian

We caught up with Bridie and Christian yesterday to present their wedding photos to them. Like most couples they said the day went by in a flash so they were very excited to see the photos to remind them of their special day. Friends and family gathered at Summerfields Country House in Bittern for their celebrations. As we had met Bridie and Christian last year at their bridesmaid Amanda’s wedding it was nice to see a few familiar faces again! They had a lovely day and beautiful weather with warm sunshine although we were glad of the cool breeze from Western Port. Bridie wore a gorgeous vintage inspired dress by Anna Campbell, soft and flowing and ideal for a country wedding. The guys looked pretty dapper in their tux’s (can’t leave them out!)....
