Shannon & Clint's Wedding | Geelong Wedding Photographer

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this gorgeous Bellarine wedding - everyone was so happy and joyful, I think I spent most of it with a smile plastered on my face!

I hadn’t photographed a wedding here before at Rusty Gate Weddings but I wish I had, it was gorgeous!

I have no doubt these two were made for each other and I’m so happy I got to see day one of their life long marriage.

Lynden & Ashleigh (& Van & Alan the dog!) | Small Wedding Ocean Grove

There are a few reasons I only take on small, casual weddings and one of those is because I LOVE them.  They are always the happiest places to be because the couple is usually fully on board with the spontaneous, relaxed, stress free nature of the day and only the loveliest of loved ones are present! This one was no exception.     The wedding had been scheduled to take place on the river but the weather had other things in mind and we ended up undercover in Barwon Heads instead.    Luckily for me, the overcast day suited the purple/colourful theme and everyone looked amazing.

With a cute little boy and a cute (not so little) dog in tow, we beat the rain and did some gorgeous family shots before the wedding even began!

Enjoy!  xxWedding Photography Ocean Grove_0146Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0147Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0148Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0149Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0150Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0151Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0152Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0153Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0154Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0155Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0156Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0157Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0158Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0159Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0160Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0161Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0162Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0163Wedding Photography Ocean Grove_0164



Geelong Wedding Photography | Doreen & Mat

I'm so excited to blog this session as I LOVED every minute of this wedding.  As you guys know, I am now offering wedding photography in Geelong and surrounds in addition to my portrait sessions, but wedding photography with a difference!  I want to focus strictly on beautiful, small and intimate weddings, with a handful (or a bigger handful up to 50 guests or so!) of guests.    Second weddings and blended families are my thing! I had never really considered wedding photography before because I have been much more focused on capturing families, but a client contacted me asking me to do it because of my family portraiture work and I thought - why not combine them?  Reality is, many couples having relaxed, laid back weddings just want something simple to celebrate the day.   They are not focused on the flavour of the cake or the tiny details and want to focus on their loved ones.  They simply don't need the 6-12 hours coverage that full time wedding photographers are offering.    I consider my wedding photography an extension of my family photography, and I hope that comes through in the photos.

This was the second wedding I shot and I was excited the minute I heard that Doreen & Mat wanted their Kombi & Bug included in the session!  They were the perfect, meaningful backdrop to this couple - colourful and impeccably maintained, it was great to be able to combine their hobby and love into their photos.

The ceremony was beautifully simple, overlooking the waterfront in Geelong.    Funnily enough, it rained on and off for most of the day until the bride arrived and then the sun came out! How is that for a good luck sign!

I wish these guys all the best and I hope they enjoyed their images as much as I enjoyed being part of their day.
