We had dreams of a wonderfully warm, sunny day. Alas, this was not entirely the case and the heavens opened in the morning but brilliant sunshine made Tara’s big entrance with her mum and dad at St Josephs’s Church in Wakefield such a special moment. It really was a joy to discover St Josephs….such a pretty Church with a wonderful upper level so that we could take photographs looking down on the wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony we had some wonderful family shots and then had very special moments photographing Tara and Craig in the historic barn on Tara’s parents’ property. Then off for a lovely walk amongst the surrounding trees and bush. After a quick stop at Hoddy’s Reserve for a few more portraits it was time to arrive at Seifrieds Estate – a magnificent winery situated on the Waimea Plains with its stunning buildings and amazing surrounding scenery.

Wonderful food, fantastic speeches and dancing into the night….a perfect day

After delivering their album I received these kind words from Tara and Craig

” Vicki and Graeme – you were awesome to work with on our wedding day and in the lead up to it. You listened to what was important to us and ensured that this was achieved. We were also very appreciative of how you were happy to let family members indulge there own photographic hobbies alongside them at times.

You captured some beautiful moments throughout the day and we loved the wonderful mix of candid and quirky shots amongst the formal ones. There was so many great pictures that it was difficult to choose the appropriate number for our Album. We were blown away when we saw our Album for the first time. It is beautiful! and of the highest quality. We are rapt with it and have loved showing it to our friends and family.

Thank you Vicki and Graeme for capturing our most special of days so beautifully.”
