Stefanie & Ashleigh's Wedding Photography At Rowville Lakes, Rowville Victoria, Australia - 30th April 2017

I look up at the sky, it's a sunny day with light cloud cover, I smile knowing we're going to get great shots today with good light, perfect conditions for great outdoor shots.  I head off to Rowville in Melbourne's eastern suburbs. Beautiful! I get to listen to Foreigner for a good hour on the way!

Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography Shoot

No groom's preparation photography today, straight to Stefanie's house to photograph her and her bridesmaids getting ready.  I began taking product photos of the flowers, invitation, rings, jewellery and dress, as the make up artist is applying the finishing touches to the bride.  Once the ladies were ready, I captured their portraits and took some group shots as well.   


Marriage Ceremony

The marriage ceremony was at Rowville Lakes, on a large grass area between 2 lakes.  Ashleigh was waiting there mingling with his family and friends, as we saw Stefanie approach from afar with her father by her side escorting her down the aisle.  With joy, they exchanged rings, and read their wedding vows to each other, sealing their marriage with a kiss. 


Bridal Party Photo Shoot

As the guests made their way to the reception hall, Stefanie and Ashleigh headed off with me around the grounds at Rowville Lakes for their photo shoot.  As the sun slowly getting lower in the sky, they posed so naturally and well for their photos, They looked so comfortable posing however I asked them to; I love that.  I was really happy with the results from their shoot!


Wedding Reception Celebration

The celebration party following the photo shoot was held at the 1st Rowville Scout Hall, a 2 minute drive from the lakes.  Guests enjoyed food and drinks as the speeches were being spoken, I remember laughing particularly with the grooms father's speech, cheeky! I like it!  

What a lovely day, I really enjoyed it!

Congratulations Stefanie and Ashleigh! I wish you the best for your future together as husband and wife!
