I love shooting at Alowyn Gardens, it is a 5 acre garden situated in Yarra Glen that is relatively unknown. It is stunning, so when I met with Jess and Nate to chat about their wedding I just about jumped out of my skin when they told me their wedding and reception would be here.
Jess and Nate decided to have all their imagery at Alowyn taken before their actual wedding ceremony, so they could move straight into celebrations with their loved ones afterwards. This was such great idea, and set the tone for their entire day. Nothing was traditional, and that's what was so amazing about their day. There was no wedding cake, no traditional vows, their reception food was seafood paella, wood fired pizza and Italian gelato, all served cocktail style under the festoon lights in the Alowyn courtyard. All accompanied by the awesome acoustic duo Tillee Music playing some laid back tunes. The vibe was chilled and everyone in the mood to sit back and celebrate, Jess and Nate style. It was my honour to capture their day and luckily under the festoons and the stars the weather was perfect and all of Jess' DIY touches a beautiful personal touch that made the day extra special.
