Alison and David

Venue: Wollongong Botanic Gardens

Alison and David’s wedding day was a beautiful and intimate celebration of their love. The couple got ready separately in different rooms of their home, eagerly anticipating their first look. Their best friends, who also served as the best man and maid of honour, watched with joy as they shared a special moment in their little courtyard.

Their ceremony took place in the rose garden section of Wollongong Botanic Gardens, surrounded by their closest family and friends. The handfasting ceremony was a beautiful expression of their commitment to each other, and I had the honor of capturing every moment.

The couple opted for an elopement package, which included two hours of coverage, plus an extra hour for prep and a first look. I was able to capture stunning portraits during the last hour, taking advantage of the beautiful garden surroundings and natural light. Along the way the newlyweds were greeted by garden visitors, ducks, geese and even water dragons.

They were then ushered away by limo to their honeymoon destination on the south coast. The whole event was short and sweet, but the impact will live on for the rest of their lives in the hearts of the lucky few in attendance.
