Nicole and Jamie are a gorgeous couple who live in Tom Price in Western Australia. They were married in December at the magnificent Tieve Tara Gardens in picturesque Mt Macedon, with a reception that evening at Roombas in Gisborne. This was a brilliant wedding! Every detail was utterly gorgeous and it was so rewarding photographing this couple who are obviously very much in love. I also had the absolute pleasure of working with Michelle Cail from Ginger House Photography, as well as my fabulous regular assistant, Sue. With the three of us photographing this lovely wedding, the poor bridal party must have felt a bit like the paparazzi was bombarding them. Ha! They were all extremely gracious and co-operative though… a truly awesome group. It certainly was fun for me working with both Michelle and Sue. I have featured a few of Michelle’s beautiful images in the gallery, and thank her for giving me permission to do so. I especially want to make mention of her magnificent sunset images from the end of the day!
Nicole and Jamie both got ready in Bendigo, before traveling to Mt Macedon for the wedding ceremony in two amazing hot rods. Jamie and the guys got ready at a house that Jamie and Nicole own in Bendigo, while the ladies chose a gorgeous room at the Hotel Shamrock for their preparations. I will begin my gallery of favourites with images of Nicole and her bridesmaids getting ready. Nicole looked divine in her beautiful wedding gown from Poppy’s Bridal Couture in Bendigo. Soft and dreamy, and just a little bit vintage with her gorgeous feather fascinator. I was in heaven photographing Nicole, her beautiful maids and the two kids who did a great job as flower girl and page-boy. I hope you enjoy this gallery of highlights of the day.
Jamie and Nicole, your wedding was so beautiful and it was such a pleasure spending this amazing day with you, your family and friends. I am so grateful for the opportunity to photograph your wedding and work in such picturesque locations. It really was a treat, and those hot rods were just incredible. I have to say how much I loved taking images in the Avenue of Honour with the cars. I’m not sure how much poor Michelle enjoyed directing all the local traffic around us though! (Great job Shell… we couldn’t have done it without you… hee hee) At least we didn’t get arrested. Imagine being in a police car on your wedding day!!! Oh wait… ? It just so happens after their reception Nicole and Jamie were honoured with a ride home in a police car, though they were simply being treated by a couple of friendly policemen who wanted to give them a unique ending to their wonderful day! What a hoot!
