Lisa + James where do I even start!
I talk so often about doing your day your way, if you are thinking about changing your day up. Let Lisa + James be your inspiration.
Lisa + James started their day by getting ready together. Once Lisa’s hair and make up was finished,they spent an hour together just the two of them drinking champagne and easing each others nerves.
I arrived after this, what a perfect way to start your wedding day by spending quality time with the one you love. We moved straight into portraits first at Oakdene estate and a cute little nature reserve down the road.
You wouldn’t know it, but both Lisa + James were nervous for portraits, they definitely knocked it out of the park. We finished portraits by going back to their room for another drink, I then headed to their Ceremony on a private property in Leopold.
When I arrived their guests were all around having a drink and relaxing into the afternoon. They had a short and sweet ceremony, where they walked one another down the aisle. The ceremony was so short and sweet I think the popping and pouring of the champagne after their signing might have been the longest part hehe. There were so many great additions you can add to your ceremony to best represent your relationship. For Lisa + James walking down the aisle together helped ease nerves, and popping champagne was so them. I am so glad they included these moments in their ceremony.
Lisa + James just walked straight into their reception and started mingling no announcement, no entrance, just no fuss. They only stopped their guests once for a short set of speeches. The rest of the time was for mingling with their guests, and enjoying the party. They had an ice cream van arrive, and then we headed across the road to an open paddock for sunset. When we got back the party had stepped up a notch, once it was dark the party was definitely on for all!
Lisa + James created a day that reflected them made them feel the most comfortable. They included family and friends from the beginning, having their wedding on their families property. Family build the bar, Lisa’s aunty is a florist and styled the day to perfection! A friend made their cup cakes, and they all chipped in to pull it all together. It was truly an incredible day to be apart of.
