Leah & Dimitry's Aravina Estate Wedding Margaret River

Leah and Dimitriy's wedding was an elegant day, starting off with preparations for the girls at the gorgeous Yallingup Luxury Retreat.  It has been a little while since we'd photographed a church ceremony, but St Thomas More Margaret River was the perfect backdrop for this lovely couple. 

After the formals were done we took a drive up to Canal Rocks and I was super impressed with Leah and Dimitriy's total willingness to climb rocks and clamber around to make the most of the beautiful landscape and get "the shot". It's not always easy in a wedding dress but we love adventurous couples and it's always worth doing something a little different!

It was fun hanging out with a smaller group, with Leah's sister and Dimitiry's brother making up the bridal party...just a cruisy afternoon spending time with people who were totally relaxed and at ease in each other's (and my) company :-)

The reception was at Aravina Estate, where we shoot regularly and completely love, so we had some fun in the vines and paddocks before heading in to party the night away. Of course our photobooth was looking completely amazing too and definitely helped add to the fun!

Congratulations Leah and Dimitriy, we wish you a lifetime of happiness in each other's arms.

Sam & Peter ~ Aravina Estate Wedding Margaret River

Sam & Pete's Big Day lived up to all expectations and was a beautifully soft, romantic, and fun day.

One of the highlights of the day for us was capturing the ladies getting ready at Smith's Beach Resort, where Sam revealed her designer Ae'lkemi dress to her bridesmaids for the first time. Sam decided that because her favourite part of a wedding is seeing the bride, she wanted it to be a surprise kept for the Big Day, and it really was a lovely moment when everyone saw her in it!

Of course the special day had so many other amazing moments as well as a lot of laughter (especially when there were a few little name blunders during the ceremony ;-)), and Sam & Pete's Bridal Party proved that even strangers can behave like old friends and helped make the occasion a great day that we were honoured to be invited to be part of.

Thank you all for making the day so much fun, now we'll leave it to our photos to tell the rest of the story. Enjoy the memories!
