James + Lauren

20th SEPTEMBER, 2014

Walking into Lauren's home early on her wedding day I was greeted and welcomed as if I was family.

The calm atmosphere was testament to Lauren and James' long established love for each other.

Winding our way deep into the valley of Crosslands Reserve gave us time to reflect, and gain an understanding of the childhood sweethearts. As we strolled through the nature, we came across the entrance of the Bush Chapel, while being taken in by the calm sounds of birds and a string trio. The ceremony took place against a natural background of green, framed by a winding river. The guests rested on a circle of log benches, watching as the couple said “I DO". 

 A short drive took us to a gorgeous reception within the walls of Bivianos Restaurant - the perfect place for the sun to set on a beautiful wedding day. 

"When thinking about what we wanted from our wedding photography it was all about capturing the "moment". If anyone has ever been able to capture such a thing it is you Jesse"
