Many years ago I went to a boarding school called Frensham and while there I met a gorgeous girl named Kate who was in the year above me. All these years later I was so thrilled when she called me to say that she was engaged to a wonderful man and that she wanted me to be her photographer! Now Kate and Rich are two fabulous people each with a wonderful family who have all known each other since they were kids! Their wedding day started in a very relaxed and happy way at a friends beach house in Mollymook and then the ceremony was just a short drive away in the lovely village of Milton. The reception was then held at Cupitt's Winery which has amazing views overlooking the vineyard and is special to the couple as it's owned by family friends.
The lovely Prim Playfair Makeup made all the girls look incredible plus she's also a fellow Frensham gal :)
Kate you truly made a stunning and very elegant bride!
Each of the girls were given a beautiful pair of swarovski earings and Kate's family also very generously gave me a swarovski pen as a thank you gift which was incredibly generous and thoughtful.
The girls looked beautiful in their dresses and were fantastic bridesmaids
It's always very special witnessing the love and pride of a mother or father as they see their little girl evolve into a beautiful bride to be. Kate's lovely mum Candy expressions were gorgeous!
One of the funniest moments of the day happened after they had been pronounced as Mr and Mrs and were making their way down the aisle, Kate clearly thought that Rich was taking to long chatting and pratically dragged him out of the church excited to face the world as mrs Gell :)
The bridal party are a bunch of seriously good looking people and were also lots of fun to work with!
During the cocktail hour the two fathers said their speeches before the bridal party was introduced, which I thought was a lovely way to start the evening and created a more relaxed vibe.
The party was hands down one of the best I've witnessed! The grandparents even showed off some seriously impressive dance moves and the atmosphere was incredible.
