Following a week of rain leading up to K & M’s wedding and rain forecast for their wedding day, this beautiful couple, who have requested privacy, but graciously allowed me to share some location and décor photographs, took it all in their stride, made some slight allowances and let the day unfold without any fuss or stress whatsoever. Rain did fall throughout the day, sometimes heavy and sometimes creating a misty haze of water, but it did not dampen this couple’s resolve to have the best wedding day ever.
In the lead up to the wedding K & M also experienced their venue being sold and having to deal with finding an alternate location for their wedding only a couple of months from their wedding day. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as their replacement venue of Dryridge Estate, located in the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains was so lovely. Dryridge Estate which is nestled in the beautiful Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains, surrounded by towering sandstone escarpments, Dryridge Estate is a stunning boutique vineyard which has recently added facilities for weddings and private functions.
Minutes before ceremony time we made the call to risk conducting the ceremony outside under the tree overlooking the vineyards. Except for a few drops here and there, the ceremony proceeded without incident and K & M were married. A quick group photo before the rain came down with guests just making it to the protection offered by the Marquee. Meanwhile K & M and the photographer braved the elements for photographs around this picturesque property.
Well what a truly wonderful evening it was!! K & M commenced proceedings by performing a choreographed dance on entry to “Cantina Band” from Star Wars by John Williams before guests joining them for a short dance set. This was followed by a delicious buffet where we released the tables one at a time after each table had participated in a selection of various activities ranging from Bride & Groom Trivia, Singing For their Supper and Guessing the Song. All this was interspersed with lovely heartfelt speeches, the Newlywed Game and the Cake cutting before everybody hit the dance floor again. Dancing continued until the end of the evening and ended with on a high with everyone singing and dancing to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
K & M’s wedding was lots of fun, intimate, personal, relaxed and overflowing with love. It was an extreme honour and pleasure to have been given the opportunity to play a part in their lifetime event. They are an awesome couple who are so deeply in love. They created a wedding that was a joyous fun celebration.. and I LOVED every second of it.

May, love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!
