It’s not very often I have a couple come to me wanting to have their wedding photos taken before the ceremony, which is exactly what Hayley and Greg chose to do. It made for a lovely relaxed photo shoot at a number of locations across the Yarra Valley, including Mont De Lancey, which was initially chosen as a back-up wet-weather plan due to the terrible storms that were forecast for Melbourne that day. Although it didn’t rain, we were blessed with an overcast day with sunshine filtering through at the right moments, we ran with the back-up plan and used any locations we could!
I was in my element at Hayley’s parent’s home, with so many gorgeous props to use, and as most people who know me well will agree with, old treasures make my heart sing. I was particularly taken with Carol’s antique type writer, which features in a number of images in this post.
Everyone knows I love a country style / vineyard wedding, and take every opportunity to make my couples go for a walk through the vines and fields of long grass, so why would Hayley and Greg’s wedding be any different! I was super excited to find a paddock near Lilydale Estate, which I jumped at immediately, giving them both a quiet moment away from their guests, before they danced the night away at their cocktail reception.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this wedding has a gorgeous romantic feel to it.
