Every now and then I meet couples who I just click with instantly and this was definitely the case the first time I met Liv & Tom. It's hard not to like Liv, as she just radiates happiness and is so fun and bubbly to be around. Tom is pretty cool too and it's lovely to now count them as friends.
Now onto the wedding and what a day it was!!! The wedding was held on the 24th of March 2012 on Tom's family property just outside of Harden. The ceremony took place on top of a hill amongst the huge bolders that had the most wonderful view, with simple and elegant touches like jars of flowers hanging in trees and bunting leading the way. Tom's family have scottish ancestory, and he's also a very good bagpipe player which is were the kilts came into play and other traditional elements. It really was an incredible day with the magical moment being when the sun came out just as the celebrant announced "You may now kiss the bride". Awwww
The flowers were created by Bunches of Blooms.
Liv's gorgeous sister Fi actually gave birth less than a week after the big day!
Her stunning hair was created by Kristie Charlton from Phenomenal Hair & Makeup.
Li'v's stunning dress was bought from Abbey Bridal in Sydney.
The Quaich is a Scottish drinking vessel which is traditional used to welcome guests or also as a farewell drink. The boys all had a shot of whisky before the ceremony.
It was a beautiful sight to see Liv and the girls walking down the hill with the bagpipes playing.
It's a wonderful feeling to spot a location and know that it could make an AMAZING photo! I saw this dead tree which had fallen across several large bolders and thought WOW! Trouble was it was quite high to get to, nearly a two metre climb. Liv was incredible and totally got on board with what I could see and happily climbed up in her beautiful dress. This shot is definitely one of my favourite images and thanks Liv for being such a sport!
The funniest part of the day was when the sheep got out and onto the road from one of the gates being left open, which Tom's dad had specifically warned them about earlier. It was a pretty funny to see the boys rounding them up in kilts and through the stuble paddocks!
The marquee looked gorgeous and it was hired from Mogga's Marquees in Young.
For the bombonieres Liv hand made organic moisturiser and her mum stiched everyones names into white covers for little pots of honey, which were sourced locally from Harden's House of Honey.
The Lolly Bar was one of the best ones I've ever seen and it actually spanned over two tables! It was designed by their lovely friend Irene Daniels who is an event planner from Sydney.
Their delicious cake came from Cakes of your Dreams - http://www.
engagement shoot we designed and made a photo guest book that all their family and friends could sign.
The guests all enjoyed the delicious catering talents of Tom Duffy and the wine came from a local vineyard called Moppity Vineyards.
For their first dance, they twirled their way through a choreographed routine to Bon Jovi's 'Always'.
The band 'The Young Ones' got the party started and it was very funny when the Best Man and Maid of Honour did a mini renactment of the first dance with lifts and twirls included!
The garden looked magical with laterns and fairy lights scatttered through out.
Congratulations to a wonderful couple!
