Stephanie and Wade are a lovely couple from Mt Isa who contacted me last year after finding my Photo Journal on the web. After a year of exchanging emails with Stephanie discussing wedding plans, I finally got to meet them the week before their September wedding here in Bendigo. It was such a thrill to finally meet them in person, and we eagerly planned out a timeline for their wedding day. They chose to have both their ceremony and reception at The Conservatory, and also both got ready (in separate rooms) at the same location! It certainly made for an easy and streamlined schedule.
After the ceremony we headed out and about in Bendigo for some fabulous location photography with the bridal party. We had a really great time, and even though it was very cold the group was cheerful and enthusiastic during our shoot. After the wedding Stephanie and Wade headed overseas for a fabulous honeymoon in Las Vegas, and recently emailed me to let me know they’re home safe and very excited to see some highlights from their wonderful day. As usual I have included a selection of the details, preparation time, the ceremony and some of the many great locations we went to. Because the entire bridal party are from out of town and completely unfamiliar with Bendigo, Stephanie and Wade took a leap of faith and trusted me to suggest the locations for them. Here are some of my favourite images from their wedding day.

It was such a pleasure to meet you Stephanie and Wade, and to have the honour of photographing your beautiful wedding. I loved working with you and your bridal party, and especially appreciated your enthusiasm and easy going attitude to being photographed. It was also fun showing you a few different areas of the City of Bendigo, as though trying to see it through your eyes. It made me realise just how much pride I have in my City, though I do wish we could have turned on some warmer weather for you all. Ha ha ha! I hope you love this small preview of your photographs, and I look forward to sending you many more in a few weeks time.
