I am not even sure where to start with a story like Nelly & Anthony. These two glorious humans are lucky to have found each other in life. They live their lives with their hearts on their sleeves and make amazing connections with those that enter their worlds. I know from the first time that we met that we would get on like a house on fire, and where we are having delivered their wedding and walked away as friends.
When we first spoke about themselves and their wedding day, all they wanted to do was to host an amazing celebration for their family and friends. The focus was on everyone else, and maximizing the fun with each and every one of them. Seclusions provided everything they could have wanted to and more from a wedding venue (especially the wonderful owners Malynda & Russ). An experience they could share with everyone travelling for a weekend away in the Blue Mountains. They carefully picked vendors that resonated with them and the wedding they wanted to have. A focus on the time spent and providing the experience they wanted for everyone at the wedding.
So on the last day of winter in 2019 they tied the knot on a chilly day in the mountains. Everyone huddled together for one cozy celebration. We lucked out with some of the most glorious winter light as we captured photos during golden hour. We got to have photos with the beautiful animals at Seclusions, as well as some inquisitive horses who came to check us out down by Lake Lyell. As the party wrapped up and the bus picked up all the guests, we ventured back into the cold to make the most of the clear night sky. Before the fog rolled in we captured some photos in the dark, capturing a field of stars and the milky way. The best way to wrap up an incredible wedding day.
The Blue Mountains has always been a special place for me. It has been delightful to have the opportunity to explore even more of the region and capture some beautiful weddings.
