Courtney and Dane decided to have a big wedding party to celebrate with their family and friends. They felt a destination wedding outside of Sydney was the perfect way to bring everyone together and spend some quality time with them all.
The weather was moody on the day of the wedding, but that did not dampen any spirits. Thankfully the rain held off until after the beautiful wedding ceremony had finished at Adam’s Peak. The ceremony location at Adams Peak is spectacular and the views across the rolling hills of Broke are breathtaking. Courtney’s uncle Steve was the celebrant for the wedding ceremony and it meant a lot to Courtney and Dane that they were married by a family member. Nan even got up for a reading, which was so beautiful they asked her to do it again during the wedding reception.
As the champagne flowed and lawn games were played, we scooted off for bridal photos down the road at Broke’s Promise. There was a little rain around and it was perfect for us to take some shelter on their beautiful wrap around verandas. As the rain eased up we ventured out into the olive groves, capturing some photos amongst the rows of olive trees.
We made it back to Adams Peak in time for sunset and we were able to capture some moody photos with that incredible view.
The reception was one big rocking party with everyone getting into the fun. After the formalities were finished, the amazing band Red Light Ruby got the dance floor going. The rains came back during the night but after a humid day of celebrating everyone was happy to be dancing in the rain.
Adams Peak Wedding
A big thank you to Courtney and Dane for having me along to capture their wonderful Adams Peak Wedding. Meeting couples like Courtney and Dane is the best part of my job. Once we start chatting it just felt like we were old friends.
It was also a delight to head up to the Hunter Valley and photograph my first Adams Peak wedding. Adam’s Peak is tucked up on a hill near Mount Broke with wonderful views over the region. It is one of the best venues in all of the Hunter Valley and Karyn (the owner) is wonderful as she is invested in each of the lovely couples who get married at her venue. Karyn really goes above and beyond on the day in making sure everything runs smoothly.
