Goona Warra Vineyard was the picturesque setting for the wedding of Claudia & Daniel. It was a gorgeous autumn day and the trees were filled with colour, as well as the grapevines in the vineyards – rows and rows of pretty golden leaves. I arrived early to photograph Claudia and her girls getting ready, with hair & makeup in the cottage near the Great Hall. Many of Claudia’s family members had travelled from overseas to attend her special day, so we captured lots of candid photographs of everyone as the day unfolded.
Daniel & the groomsmen arrived in the afternoon, and the ceremony took place out on the terrace – an absolutely gorgeous location in the afternoon sun. The look on both Daniel & Claudia’s faces when they saw each other for the first time was just beautiful – as was their entire ceremony. Everyone got a laugh out of poor Daniel’s slip-up when he promised to take Claudia as his lawful wedded wife – and missed one important letter in the sentence!
After their ceremony there was time for family photos, and we then wandered the Goona Warra gardens and vineyards for some relaxed wedding photographs in the afternoon sun. Canapes and dinner followed in the Great Hall, with a gorgeous chocolate wedding cake, dancing, and heartfelt speeches. All in all, a beautiful celebration with family and friends, and an incredibly special day. Claudia and Daniel, thankyou so much for asking me to photograph your day, may you have a wonderful future together!
