From Tigs Macallen PhotographyGosh did it rain on Kat and Hamish’s wedding day. The heavens opened in joy and showered them with a strong and lavish amounts of approval. It made the day very adventurous and created a beautiful story. If the old saying is true about rain on your wedding day, then Kat and Hamish will have very good luck! The dark clouds and the freshness of the colours after the rain were so vivid. What lovely memories were made:)

From The Bride…Everybody wishes for a bright, sunny wedding day and we were no different! But the sky’s opened and drenched us in rain, yet in hindsight, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. The stormy grey skies created a magical landscape and made for a very memorable day!

It was important to us that our guests could relax and really have a good time. We wanted to have our ceremony and reception at the same venue and Aghadoe Estate, just out of Daylesford, was perfect. It is a beautifully restored homestead with stunning gardens, and as soon as we saw it we knew it would capture the rustic, elegant feel we were looking for.

We hired the property for the weekend so the bridal party could spend the night and we were able to have our guests back for a breakfast bbq the next day. The Novotel Creswick is just down the road and we organised a bus to get our guests to and from the venue.

My dress was from Mariana Hardwick. I was never set on a white dress and after seeing a beautiful metallic lace that was used in their Hardwick line I asked if a dress could be designed based around that. I loved the antique look of the gown and was so thrilled to have a style that was all my own!

To complement the antique feel of my dress I chose Samantha Wills deco style earrings and kept my flowers classic, with a cascading bouquet of white peonies, passionflower and green foliage. Petra from Pomp & Splendour did such a fabulous job. The bridesmaids wore elegant blue silk dresses that matched perfectly with boys navy suits and my oyster coloured dress.

One of the best things about the wedding preparations was visiting the flower markets at the crack of dawn the day before. My Mum and I had a ball filling our cart with stunning flowers in pastel shades and spent the day arranging flowers for the ceremony and reception, as well as the bridesmaids bouquets. It was a lot of work but definitely worth it.

During the ceremony rain began to pour down and we had to relocate to under the verandah halfway through our vows! The rain cleared just as we went to take our photos but I had to don a pair of bright red gumboots to make my way though the mud. It definitely wasn’t planned but Tigs and Matt made it such a fun shoot and we are so thrilled to have these special memories captured in such beautiful images.

It’s true what everyone says, the day absolutely flies, and we wish we could do it all again (rain included!) to spend another night tearing up the dance floor with all our friends and family.

This is a wedding that is truly beautiful in every sense of the word – from the gorgeous styling to the totally in love high school sweethearts saying I do – every moment captured is as stunning as it is sweet, and you can see even more here.

From The Bride… My now husband and I met as High school sweethearts and we have been together for 11 years. Nick organised a surprise trip to Sydney where he planned a sea plane to fly us to an Island for a romantic picnic on the beach where he proposed.

The wedding was at Campbell Point House. We loved the romance of the venue and the fact that our family could stay at the venue with us during the weekend, having everyone with you makes it even more special. It was also the location as it was halfway between our old home where we grew up in Country Victoria before we moved to Melbourne together at the age of 18.

The theme was inspired by the location, the venue and a romantic look and feel. It was all whites and soft pinks, all neutral colors. Everything on the day had some handmade elements to it, from the homemade jam, to the wedding cake, to the hand made menus and name tags. My Mother made the cake, which was a white chocolate mud cake, my 77 year old Grandmother made homemade jams for the bombonieres.

The weather was clear but windy, however as we sat down for dinner which was set up outside on the grass the gods were smiling as the sun came out for a brief moment before we all headed back inside the house to continue the night with cocktails and dancing.

I had seen Karen Willis Holmes gowns featured on wedding blogs, which I was looking at while preparing for our wedding, I went to some other stores to try dresses on, but nothing I tried made me feel like it was the one. Then we went to the Karen Willis Holmes Armadale store and this dress was perfect. I said I would buy it before I even saw myself in the mirror, as it just felt perfect, I had to have it! The detail, the design…I didn’t want to take it off!

All bridesmaids dresses were different selected by the bridesmaids themselves, from Review, Rodeo Show and some online stores.

From Neiyo….Melissa and Peter are one of those couples that you fall in love with straight away. They are so kind and caring, even though I was their photographer, they treated me like family.

It was a beautiful sunny blue sky kind of day in Melbourne with a cold breeze. At the gate of this breathtaking private estate (which reminds me of Revenge the TV series!) I was asked for a code, luckily this kind young man driving behind me screamed it out to me who turned out to be one of the 2 groomsmen/sons of the groom. The whole theme for Peter and his boys were Country Road and navy blue whilest everything on the brides side was a soft rose color. Even the little ones were matching to the color sceme. This couple certainly has good taste as most of their wedding was DIY. Melissa styled and organised everything including clothing for entire wedding party, where flowers were positioned in the property, made the blackboards for each area and even covered the cylinders which guests took home with their caricature in with paper (yes they hired a caricaturist!)

During the day I captured a few funny shots as the wind was blowing heavily and the boys & their girlfriends tried to protect their hairdo. I myself even had a Marilyn Monroe moment (lucky my assistant Alli was there to the rescue). Melissa’s Bridesmaid Jane was so beautiful and she made me laugh when I told her that she’s the best bridesmaid and she responded ” thats coz Im Old!”

The wedding was very kids friendly with an area especially decorated for kids and an easter egg hunt that the kids loved. Melissa and Peter designed the menu themselves transforming old family favourites to gourmet style sliders, mini trays of spaghetti and mini pizzas.

The speeches were heart warming filled with laughter and tears especially when Peter thanked his 2 sons…it was a touching moment that I will never forget.

The fairy lights of the estate were sparkling as the night continued in dancing.
