Golding Winery Wedding – Shae and Carly

Earlier this year I had the honour of documenting Carly and Shae’s wedding. Shae was a bridesmaid in another wedding I had photographed and Carly did some videography work in yet another wedding so I kind of knew them a little bit before their big day, but it wasn’t until their wedding that I really got to see what they were all about. Things like Shae’s exquisite taste and attention to detail (her dress was gorgeous and the reception set up was incredible) and Carly’s hilarious dry sense of humour were things I didn’t pick up first time round. 

For most weddings I start the day with the guys getting ready before heading over to the girls, in this case Carly and Shae got ready together along with their entire wedding party, it made for a different dynamic but it was really cool and just felt totally natural and laid back. Once everyone was ready we headed out to take a few pre-wedding photos around the urban landscape of Bowden and Brompton, there are loads of awesome run down buildings and some sweet street art to use as backdrops. We then left “urban edgy” behind and headed up the hill to Golding Wines for the complete opposite – “countryside elegance”.

I’ve shot a lot of weddings at Golding but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it look this magical thanks to Keira from Rapture Events and the floral design from Blooming Bridal. The ceremony was great, the reception was so much fun and the whole day just exuded love. As I left that night I thought to myself that anyone who opposes same sex marriage should go to more weddings like this one; they would see that at the core of it all it’s very simple, just two people who love each other making promises in front of their closest friends and family that they’ll stick together through thick and thin.  Just like every single wedding I’ve ever been to.
