Mansfield Wedding Photography | Andy & Ruth

Mansfield, Victoria. What is it with this incredible town and its people. A town neatly snuggled between the beautiful hills of the Great Dividing Range, it always creates something incredible every-time I visit.

Country Wedding Photography, Mansfield Victoria - Andy & Ruth

After my first Mansfield wedding, I am always itching to get back. The visuals in this town are in truth, phenomenal. The sun streams across rolling hills like melted gold, creating a countryside as if it was touched by Midas.

The Wedding

The wedding day was perfectly planned in every detail. It was crazy to believe that twelve months previous, there was nothing. Just a house. Now, as I follow the dusty red roads through to the ceremony, you know straight away how much effort has taken place.

Covered in beautifully native flora, Andy’s hand-made arbore stands proudly as the wedding guests walked through. Stepped out with more flowers, candle lights and rustic cuts of wood, your eye follows the road further in astonishment. On the horizon, you see a white tent marquee standing tall on top of the hill glowing against the rock escarpment behind it. Incredible.

There is so much more to this than a beautiful landscape and an amazing venue.
People make a wedding.

Which brings us to the bride and groom. Andy & Ruth. 

I don’t even know where to begin with these two. I think Ruth’s father summed it up better than I could. ‘Ruth and Andy are collectors of people. They bring good people together.’  And it was so true. The happiness and togetherness from friends and family was beautiful, and just strengthened as Andy & Ruth were together. Everyone was there to truly celebrate with them, a community of happiness.

As a wedding photographer, I have a job to do get done. Its interesting how to balance my role for weddings like these. Andy and Ruth are two special people eclectic and kind. And together, grouped with amazing friends and family, they just pull you in by the energy of it all. I don’t know whether to take photos or consume myself in complete enjoyment. I think it did both?

All I can say Andy & Ruth is thank you for letting me be part of it all.
