Last November I had the pleasure of capturing Kate & Jeff on their wedding day. You will have seen their engagement shoot posted here several months ago. You can view their Engagement shoot at West Beach here.
Kate and Jeff met in 2009 at the Stamford Grand after Kate’s New Years party plans fell through and her sister invited her to go out with her instead – fate would have it, that Jeff was one of her sister’s friends and they have been together ever since!
On the day, Kate was dressed in a stunning strapless dress from Jenny & Gerry’s Bridals. Kate’s sister, her bridesmaid was dressed by After Dark. When it came to planning where they would get married, they fell in love with Silvestris at the and their inspiring gardens and how elegant they were. I agree – the gardens are simply stunning and as you can see we had great fun capturing them and their bridal party there. After maximising our time in the gardens we actually took a few minutes in the main street to get a few shots just up from the infamous Clarendon Bakery (where I saw one of the Groomsmen dashing to satisfy his hunger with a doughnut!).
Next stop was Grange Jetty. It was extremely windy but it simply added to the effects of a flying veil.
Kate & Jeff had booked their reception at The Lakes Shore Hotel at West Lakes. The florist – Lee of Wyld Orchids did an amazing job of Kate’s flowers and her suspended flower display filled with peonies was no exception! She trumped it and it looked amazing! They chose this venue because of the views, large space and layout they could have. Not to mention the staff could not do enough for them – bending over backwards at any opportunity. As animal lovers, Kate & Jeff thought by purchasing RSPCA key rings for their bomboniere, so proceeds went back to the RSPCA. The couple partied the night away with their very energetic fans followed by a wonderful honeymoon in Singapore & Thailand to relax and kick back.
Overall it was a truly stunning day and Kate and Jeff had a wonderful day – so did I!
