Amy & Alex’s Wedding – Mansfield, Victoria

Country Wedding Photography

What an incredible story to tell. It’s hard to know where to start with Amy & Alex’s amazing wedding day.

One thing that its quintessentially clear – Together, these two are destined for great things. It warms my heart to see two incredible people, so genuine, so caring, so in love. To photograph their wedding day was an honour, but hearing their inspiring story undeniably makes you appreciate family, love and to revel in every moment of it.

The morning began catching up with Alex and the boys for breakfast. However moments after arriving, Alex steps me aside and says “You need see the girls…” smiling ear to ear “…We’ve got a surprise for Amy.” And what a surprise it was. As I arrived at the Mansfield Regional Produce Store, the cafe was packed. In the corner of my eye, I see Amy’s brother and Alex’s best friend roll up with a guitar in one hand and flowers in the other. As everyone stood in wonder of the events taking place, the serenade had begun. Singing the lyrics to Adam Sandler’s ‘Grow Old With You’ from the Wedding Singer, the once bustling cafe audience quietly stood in complete amazement and awe. There wasn’t a table in sight that didn’t have someone with tears in there eyes. It was only 10:00am and I was already captivated and excited for the rest of the day to come.

The ceremony was set within the gardens of their country home, Mansfield, Victoria, it was evident to see how busy Alex & Amy had been. With hard work and the helping hands of family and friends, their long anticipated vision had truly been brought to life. One step into the gardens was like stepping into romantic painting – vintage dressers, old furniture, ornate mirrors and hanging tea lights were daubed throughout the scene, as the light-play of the summer sun fell across the dam and trees. It was magic.

As the ceremony took place, I couldn’t help but smile knowing how lucky I was to be part of it all, sharing it with these two wondrous people and supporting families. It’s been close to a year since I started this amazing adventure into wedding photography, Amy & Alex reaffirms everything I adore about it. Thank you.

Another big thank you goes out to my beautiful partner Michelle, who helped me photograph Amy & Alex’s wedding, (her photos are throughout the blog) It is an absolute blessing to do this with you and have you here, along side me.
