Another amazing destination wedding out towards the Wagga region. This was my second time at Brucedale Estate and what a venue it is to get married!
There were many highlights for me spending the day with this amazing couple. The first, Dan’s 2 year old niece Tiggy decided that being a flower girl wasn’t for her, and made a grand entrance of tears and flopping to the ground in a big fluff of tulle! As a dad of two young daughters myself, this absolutely cracked me up because I can certainly relate as my own daughter did exactly this when she was a flower girl a few years back!
Kate & Dan grew up on farms in the area and throughout the day, involved their animals where they could- they even had their beautiful border collie Digby act as the official ring bearer and he certainly got as lot of attention as he walked down the isle with the rings!
We then headed off to their parents farm at Junee, where the sheep shearing shed was totally transformed ( with a HUGE amount of work by Kate & Dan) into a magical wedding reception, with thousands of fairy lights adorning the ceiling.
Having met at university completing their science degrees, and both coming from a farming environment, the choice of the farm for photographs was spot on and complemented their lifestyle so well. We had a beautiful sunset to create some golden images, from Kate’s favourite tractor, using the old car-to-rip-up-dust trick and my particular favourite was visiting the (very pregnant) sheep! The open fields were also a perfect environment for some drone landscapes which I think really captures the fragility of the environment our Aussie farmers are in.
Kate and Dan, thanks so much for having me capture your day!
