I have been quite excited to work with this lovely couple from the beginning, I have known Daniel for a few years – he is a wonderful photographer and has contributed wedding photos to my blog in the past (click here to see that blog). I knew he would choose a great photographer to take the photos on his very special day. I haven’t known Kate for very long, however instantly took a liking to her when we first met to plan their wedding day. Kate is a designer, I have seen some of her photography work on Facebook and Instagram, so I was eager to find out what these two creative’s had planned for their wedding day – I knew it would be stylish.
Daniel and Kate have a lot in common, they share a love of Photography, coffee drinking and trips to Kyneton. They faced a few challenges at the beginning of their relationship – only making their bond stronger. It was during this time they both realized, it was true love and they wanted to share the rest of their lives with one another. They got engaged in Tasmania and soon decided to get the ball rolling for their special day. I was really honoured to be a part of their wedding.
Daniel and Kate were married on a lovely Saturday in June. It was quite cold to begin with, however turned out to be a lovely sunny day. They were married at The Tylden Harvester, a lovely little restaurant in Tylden – about 10 minutes away from Kyneton, in the Macedon Ranges. They had about 20 of their closest family and friends there – it was just the loveliest time. The restaurant was closed for the afternoon and had been decorated especially for their special day. It was one of the most lovely, intimate weddings I have witnessed for some time. I loved all of the wonderful decorations and attention to detail in the restaurant. Being winter, there was a lovely wood fire in one of the rooms dedicated for the ceremony. Everything had a lovely intimate feel and everything was closely aligned with their aesthetic.
Farrah Allan took the wedding photos; they suited the theme of the wedding. I loved what Daniel and Kate chose to wear. Daniel wore his hat, I have only ever seen him without it a handful of times in the whole time I have known him. I think Daniel and Kate let their personalities shine through on the day. Kate wore the most lovely lace dress, with a stunning little cardigan and I LOVED the red shoes she chose to wear!
It was the last wedding on my calendar before my baby was due to be born. All of the guests were really lovely and all full of questions about my baby, (couldn’t miss it, I was huge!). I had such a fantastic time and met a lot of wonderful people. Everyone I spoke to was really lovely and friendly. I think Daniel and Kate are exceptionally lucky to have such a great lot of friends and family. I feel really lucky to be a celebrant; I get to be a part of one of the happiest days of a couple’s life. Especially on occasions like this, when it is such a small and intimate affair.
Thanks to Farrah Allen for letting me use her photos from the day. Check out her website here. If you are in the Macedon Ranges, check out The Tylden Harvester, click here to see their website, go and see Adam there, and ask him to play you something on the piano.
