Marianne + Jay | A Hunter Valley Elopement
Marianne and Jay… what a wonderful little wedding. They got ready together in the morning and it was a perfect start to the day.
This gorgeous couple chose to elope in the Hunter Valley, in a quaint little church in Wollombi in front of 5 others. (including the videographer and myself) with such a small party it was easy to hone in on the intimacy and Marianne was adamant that we should have lots of portraits to share with her family and friends. (who were we to argue!?) She looked beautiful in her custom made blush pink wedding gown, and who doesn’t love a guy in a suit with a bowtie? So off around the countryside of Wollombi and the Hunter Valley vineyards we drove. The only set of photos Marianne requested, was of them hugging – the feeling was palpable, and now they are some of my favourite wedding photos.
They had a few friends/family join them at their small reception at Margan Wines Estate in the Hunter Valley, and it just topped off what a stunning celebration it was.
I’m forever saying how much I love weddings, but being able to photograph people marrying the one they love, ceremonies big or small, just gets my heart fluttering every time.
Marianne and Jay, Thank you x
