The historic Earslferry House bed and breakfast in Guildford was the ideal place to start a vintage themed day. Holly-Jayne and her team of four bridesmaids were at one end of the estate, preparing for the days events. The high ceilings and ornate fittings of each room at Earlsferry House helped capture the elegance of a bygone era. On the other side of the house Cary and his band of groomsmen were easing nerves with a good laugh and a cold beer. The Akubra hats and cowboy boots showed the country roots of Cary and his mates, putting their own little twist on the day.
The flawless Caversham House was the location of the ceremony. It boasts being voted the number one wedding venue in Perth. The Hidden Gardens right on the river foreshore offered breathtaking formal terraced gardens, has a four storey waterfall, hand carved statues, sand stone balustrade, timber walkway and jetty. Holly-Jayne arrived in perfectly restored 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, loaned to them for the day by good friend and car enthusiast Mark Lazarus. The emotions unleashed as the bridal couple got their first look and exchanged vows. Big men were brought to tears everywhere you looked. It was a very touching and heartfelt ceremony.
The Mellersh family’s farm reception in Bindoon tied in perfectly with the rest of the days country/vintage theme. As the sun dipped in the sky I was able to capture some of my favourite photos of the day. There was not a breath of wind and any water that was around mirrored the rugged landscape beautifully. With a dusty old red pick up truck, good homestyle catering, cold beer, dancing, and some exceptional DJ work from family friend Vaughn, it was a good fun wedding to shoot.
Thank you to Cary and Holly Jayne, and all others involved. The emotion flowed and your wedding day was a delight to shoot and one of the more unique ones I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in.
