Ali and Ian's wedding was one of those incredible experiences that stays in your mind and makes you smile when you think of it. I had the pleasure of spending three whole days with them as they put all the finishing touches on their locations and gorgeous handmade details, with the help of family and friends. One of the things I love so much about a handmade wedding is watching a couple's loved ones come together to help make their dreams a reality. Team work at it's best!
Between Nowra and Jervis bay you'll find Pyree. This is where Ali and Ian's wedding took place. Their ceremony was on Ali's grandparent's property, a place that's been in the family for generations. A place filled with so much history and beauty. We roamed farmland between the homestead and their reception hall for photos, and came face-to-face with curious dairy cows as they came home for the night. At the local hall, under a plaque with Ali's family name etched on it, the party began. Filled with fresh flowers from our early morning trip to the Sydney markets and warm twinkling lights, the reception party kicked off as laughter and music spilled from windows across neighbouring paddocks.
As the evening took on a magic golden glow, I couldn't help sneaking them off for some quick photos. We chased the sunset to a field across the road and watched as the sky lit up with the day's last light. We were gone for such a little while, but that time and it's memories were so precious.
