Ravensthorpe wedding photography – Erin & Jay

Erin & Jay had been together for 8 years before they went on a trip around Europe.   Erin had been wanting to go to the Eiffel tower since day one – what else do you want to do when you get to Paris?!  Jay finally took her on a picnic on a glorious day under the Eiffel tower. He proposed, she said yes, and they got a round of applause from the other picnickers!

South Coast Wedding Ravensthorpe – Kristie & Wilko

On a balmy afternoon at Ravensthorpe an engagement cocktail party was supposed to happen.  Little did everyone know it was about to turn into the best wedding surprise celebration to hit Wollongong!

Kristie and Wilko met 9 yearsago when they were both working at North Gong Pub. They disagree about who asked for whose number, but luckily one of them got it right!  They love crossfit and travel, with a focus on places that are close to nature and off the beaten track – like seeing Kristie’s beloved Moon Bears in China or Vietnam.

Ravensthorpe wedding Wollongong – Andrea & Angus

I have been blessed with back to back weddings at my favourite venue in Wollongong – the gorgeous Ravensthorpe!  I’m sure you won’t mind seeing a few blogs, and it’s great to see that every wedding is different – even when the venue doesn’t change 🙂

Angus and Andrea are a beautiful couple who have studied medicine together for many years, and now finally have time to focus on each other and tie the knot!  Their Christmas wedding gave them time to finish exams before frantically organising the final details for the best day of their lives (so far!)

Andrea’s dad has passed away, so her two lovely brothers walked her down the aisle.  As she walked towards the love of her life, you can see her pause for a moment to blow a kiss at her dad – looking down from above.  She also saved a seat for him and put a lovely framed photo of dad on the seat.

I really love the flowers, and specially the use of ivy in Andrea’s lovely floral head piece.  Having a summer wedding is sometimes a little hazardous for the poor boys in their suits, so Andrea decided to let all the groomsmen just wear a vest, which was much appreciated! Andrea bought a big basket full of fabric parasols to help keep all the ladies cool, but I think the boys got a little jealous and decided to have a play 🙂  The quote of the year was brilliant, written by “alcohol”, it was “Trust me, you can dance!”   And alcohol seems to know what it is talking about, because it wasn’t long before the wedding shoes were off and the dancing started!

Special mention goes to the best little flower girl and page boy ever!!  Enjoy, Anna B

Ravensthorpe Wedding Wollongong – Laura and Chad

Laura and Chad are childhood sweethearts who met in their high school years.  They chose the best little church in Jamberoo for the wedding Ceremony – Saint Matthews Catholic, and had photographs and fun around the hills of Jamberoo.  The Reception was held at Ravensthorpe in Albion Park on the south coast near Wollongong.   I think Nan’s little poem to the newly married couple sums it all up..  ‘May you always have love to share, health to spare and friends who care’.

Ravensthorpe wedding photographer Wollongong – Katlyn & Josh

Katlyn is from Canada, so when organising her wedding, she and Josh decided both Canada and Australia were great places to get married! The first wedding was in Canada, and the second one at the beautiful Ravensthorpe in Albion Park on the south coast of NSW. It was the best venue for the day, as even with changeable weather there is always somewhere amazing to take photos.  Special thanks goes to the resident Jacarada tree 🙂  Katlyn loved Ravensthorpe so much she now works there co-ordinating for other brides on their special day.
