Natalie & Chris’s wedding at Chateau Elan & Wandin Valley – Hunter Valley

It’s been a while since we were in the Hunter for a wedding – I think even over 2 years – although I have been there for pleasure since then :-)

Natalie & Chris’s wedding was particularly beautiful – you can’t go wrong with a mix of Mira Mandic, Kilts, Slide McBride and clear blue skies.  It was a first to shoot at Wandin Valley and after the night had ended (for us) I realised what a perfect venue this was for Natalie & Chris.

There was a great energy all day and I think we captured it pretty well.  You could feel the love and friendship in the atmosphere, and with everyone laughing and joking all night it was hard not to feel a part of it all.

It was a 32 degree day but not one complaint from stunning Natalie and handsome Chris who must have been very hot – they were just having a ball.

It’s December and wow what a year it’s been – a couple more weddings for you before Christmas coming up and then I look forward to doing a ‘faves of 2013’ post in the new year.

Des & Deirdre’s wedding Roberts Restaurant Hunter Valley




















The lovely Roberts Circa 1876 is where Des & Deirdre had their casual but elegant Hunter Valley Wedding.  I love how Deirdre’s something blue was her wedding gown! Not traditional at all and a lovely surprise for me to photograph.

They were laughing the entire time and are obviously so well suited it was great to witness their vowes and all the family and friends celebrating madly.

Des & Deirdre are also passionate Flamenco dancers and we were treated to some amazing dancing later on in the night.
