Leah & Steve

Category: Weddings

Leah & Steve are very dear friends of mine and it was an honour to capture their big day! Leah is an incredibly beautiful, inspiring and stylish woman and the wedding was filled with so much happiness and lots of special surprises from family and friends. Leah, you are my soul sister and I wish you and Steve so much joy for your exciting future together. I would also like to thank my lovely assistant Emily for helping me on the day, as she did a fantastic job!

Leah designed her stunning dress and had the Sewing Box in Cowra bring her vision to life with ivory silk purchased from Thailand.

For a bit of a twist on tradition, Leah and Steve decided to do the majority of their photo’s before the ceremony. I was excited about this, as it meant we could do a first look sequence, which was really cute and made the whole day so relaxed and fun.

I adore the rustic beauty of old wool sheds and Leah's dad Robert found us a cracker!

Leah and Steve for their bridal party chose Leah's gorgeous sister Georgia and Steve's fun brother Aaron who came all the way from Ireland. Georgia looked beautiful in her dusty pink Nicola Finetti gown.

Iandra Castle made for a beautiful setting for the photos as it tied in so well with the elegant feel of the day.

I have a slight obsession with the TV show Downton Abbey, so when I saw the amazing cars I got a little bit excited!

Leah’s wonderful mum Leonie, organised as a surprise a box of butterflies, which Georgia her sister released after the vows and it was a really special and beautiful moment. Their good friend Mark also arranged a surprise of the local choir to sing while they signed the wedding certificates.

It was really lovely to get a bit glammed up in my pink dress and I love this shot that Emily captured for me.

The reception was held in a marquee at Grove Estate Winery in Young, which was surrounded by the vineyard and a fabulous twisted branch arrangement hung from the ceiling.

Leah and I both love the children books Brambly Hedge and it was so sweet to see the little figures of Poppy & Dusty standing next to the cake.

Leah loves to garden and gave all her ladies a tulip bulb and pot of lavender and Steve gave the boys a mini bottle of Irish Wiskey from his homeland.

Leah has a bit of an obsession with Lego and it was great to see the wedding set placed on the bridal table.

Leah and Steve's first dance was to the song "1000 years" by Christina Perry and for those who know them it really fitted them beautifully.

For something a little fun I created a photo booth, which everyone loved and it was great to see some of the oldies who you wouldn’t expect getting in there and having a laugh.
