Chantelle and I grew up together – we lived next door to each other our entire lives, so when she asked me to be her wedding photographer, I jumped at the opportunity!
The lead-up to their big day was the wettest March that I could remember, so it was no surprise to wake on the day to torrential rain. Despite the wet weather, it couldn’t dampen their happiness. It was a gorgeous ceremony and reception at the picturesque Panorama House at Bulli. Thick fog had engulfed the mountain top, we couldn’t see anything further than a metre ahead, and the rain just didn’t seem to relent. The whitewash just made everything soft and beautiful and Chantelle just looked radiant! They said their I-DO’s in an intimate indoor gathering of their closest friends and family.
After the ceremony, we took advantage of every dry second we could. The bridal party took a drive down the hill to the gorgeous beaches at the foot of Stawell Tops and captured some stunning location shots. As night rolled in, the reception got into full swing and we were able to steal away to grab some night shots in the beautiful gazebo, with quite literally a 5 second break in the rain.
Congratulations Nick & Chantelle!
