I am so happy to share the epic celebration and Milawa Wedding of Paul & Beck. Right from our very first skype call I knew we would get on like a house on fire. I first met Paul through a photography forum we both participated in. Paul is an excellent landscape and travel photographer himself. We had followed each others work for a little while. I secretly hoped he would get in touch with me about photographing his own wedding.
Paul proposed to Beck under the amazing northern lights in Norway (the photo was used in the wedding invitation below). Paul & Beck had been living in London for a couple of years when they first got in touch about their wedding back in Australia. The location was set in a beautiful spot in Country Victoria called Milawa.
We also took the chance to capture their Engagement Session in London whilst I traveled for Eva & Keith’s Iceland elopement. It was so special being able to truly get to know these two better and create a set of photos for them of their time in London.
The wedding day was a great celebration with all of their family and friends in the one location. A bridal party made up of their best friends. They instantly welcomed me in and made me feel like one of the gang. I arrived the day before and scouted some spots for photos close to Brown Brothers. The day itself was relaxed, with the ceremony taking place under the Oak Trees at Brown Brothers. The reception was in the old barn at the winery.
After the reception finished we snuck outside and captured some photos under the moon lit landscape. An epic way to finish a wonderful day.
I love the friendship I have made with Paul & Beck since meeting them throughout their whole wedding process. From our time spent in London, the Milawa Wedding and recent trips. In fact I am finishing this blog post as I sit in their lounge room whilst I visit them in Melbourne!
It was an absolute joy getting to visit Brown Brothers for the Milawa Wedding. A beautiful old region with a lot of old country side feel and vineyards. It was fun scouting the area to find some great spots to shoot. I look forward to photographing more weddings in the area again!
