York, in the Avon Valley, is the historic and pristine setting for Aimee and Jarrod’s intimate country wedding. It’s one of the oldest towns in Western Australia with many of the old buildings being perfectly restored and used today. Laurelville Manor is one of these buildings and is a fitting start to Aimme and Jarrod’s big day. Built in 1896 it has been restored to all its Edwardian glory and makes for a stunning backdrop which has seen them voted as one of W.A.s best wedding venues.
Aimee and her bridesmaids got themselves ready at Laurelville Manor, enjoying a champagne as they shared a laugh. A relaxed bridal party allowed for some great black and white shots which captured the vintage interior.
The ceremony was held at Mt Brown Lookout which is only 5km from Yorks town centre. It has 360 degree views of the township and surrounding countryside, making for a perfectly picturesque country ceremony. Jarrod and Aimee’s choice of location reflected their love of Australian nature, landscape and the outdoors.
As the sun sank slowly in the west, I was able to capture one of my favourite photos of the day. Standing up on the lookout at sunset and capturing a relaxed Aimee and Jarrod before we headed back to Laurelville Manor for the reception.
The Manor was lit beautifully for the evening reception. The intimate number of guests allowed the bride and groom plenty of time to mingle and chat with everyone.
Thank you to Aimee and Jarrod for the pleasure of photographing your special day. It’s always enjoyable when there are new and unique locations for me to shoot. I wish you all the best for many years to come.
