After capturing Lisa & Taylor in my Blossom Studio for their Engagement, I was looking forward to photographing their wedding day. Lisa & Taylor met through Lacrosse (Lisa’s family are heavily involved – like me and Taylor is a keen player!).
Lisa and her girls got ready at her parents home in Richmond where they had their hair and make up done by Natasha Stone of Face It & Brianna Couzner + Chelsea Boersma of Mirra Hair Lounge. Lisa was dressed by Bridal on Pulteney, as were her Bridesmaids. The boys prepared nearby and I photographed them up at St Francis dressed to the nines!
Lisa & the girls were chauffeured up to the winery in a black hummer. Led by a band of nieces and nephews, Lisa was given away by her proud father. Their celebrant Jessica Malda kept the ceremony light and fun with a great injection of humour.
Post ceremony, once all those hugs and kisses had subsided the guests and bridal party joined for a big group shot and then family shots took place. Once all of the ‘official photos’ were complete, the bridal party and I took off to capture them in a gorgeous park nearby where the sun was hitting the trees behind them giving a stunning backlight for their party shots. We moved back to the Winery to take advantage of the back building and stairs, plus a few last shots of Lisa & Taylor with the sun for a little romance.
I loved the girls amazing flower bouquets as they had the Australian native influence and were so unique – styled by Sarah of Pretty Little Blooms who does an amazing job every time! I have photographed many of her wedding bouquets and am never disappointed!
Lisa and Taylor chose St Francis Winery because of the settings and gardens and they went for a rustic look & feel with their decorations. They did their centrepieces themselves but hired a twinkle light backdrop by Glow Event Decor for a little bit of shimmer and class! In place of bomboniere they donated money to the MS Society and all of their guests received a pin in acknowledgement of this.
Overall a truly gorgeous day with a gorgeous couple! I recently caught up with them and found out they are expecting a baby! I am so happy for them and can’t wait to capture the next stage in their lives together.
