Southern Highlands Wedding – Milton Park Bowral – David and Chlaris
One of my favourite areas of the world is the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. So lush and quaint, very laid back but also effortlessly styled. Milton Park is quintessentially Southern Highlands; and I was extra speshily happy when David and Chlaris asked me to photograph their wedding to be held there.
Chlaris and David decided upon a ‘First Look’, meeting each other underneath an old vine entangled iron arched tunnel. I have to admit, I wasn’t sold on First Looks initially, but after a couple of real heart-felt experiences with them, now I always mention it to my couples.
And these two love-birds didn’t disappoint either, just bursting with love and excitement as they lay eyes on each other, knowing that in a few short hours they would be man and wife. There is something to be said about sharing a few private moments together before joining your loved ones to celebrate your union….and maybe with your bridal party too!
It was a brisk day that’s for sure, everyone desperate to get inside any chance they could to warm up. But David and Chlaris were like two school kids with a crush, keen to get out and get some cool snaps when possible.
They were inseparable all day and night, always having a sneaky glance, a shy smile, always absentmindedly reaching out and touching each other’s arms.
It gives me the warm fuzzies being a part of such a celebration of love with two people so in love.
Guys, may you continue to inspire those around you and each other for years to come. You both looked awesome, and you are awesome.
Here are some of my fave moments of your big beautiful chilly day in the Southern Highlands of NSW.
Ok, enough babble.
Enjoy the pics.
First and foremost. A HUGE thanks to my partner in crime Pete Oakman, who not only drove all the way down from Brisbane with me for the wedding and flew back up on the Monday, but, who always has my back…and has saved me countless times. Thanks bud.
