Kylie & Scott's winter black-tie wedding at The Valley Estate Currumbin was one to remember.
After lockdowns prevented multiple attempts to have their dream New Zealand wedding, Kylie & Scott grew tired of rescheduling their big day so they decided to pursue a new venue closer to home.
At the start of their special day, we met up with Scott at “The Gentleman’s Retreat”. With it’s pool table, high-end furniture, including a giant mirror it’s a great place to capture the groomsmen getting ready. The banter was thick before they made their way to the ceremony. Next we went to Kylie in “The Sanctuary” , the beautiful bride prep area in the Manor’s loft. This space has all the lux trimmings you would expect of a venue like this but the thing I loved the most about this time was Kylie’s niece’s & nephew were part of the fun and they showed up in lots of our shots.
Their ceremony had some heartfelt words from close friends as well as beautiful vows to each other. They walked back down the aisle to a flurry of confetti and lots of smiles. After some group photos everyone settled into some drinks on the lawns by the pavilion, we made our way to the “The Glass House” for the bridal party to take a moment for drinks & canapés too.
This is where some of my favourite shots of the day were taken, the colours of the plants & couch’s mixed with the filtered light made for amazing images. Once we had done the bridal party shots we made our way around the properties gardens with just Kylie & Scott where I concentrated on their connection.
Our photo walk ended back at “The Manor” with the couple slipping back up to “The Sanctuary” to freshen up before making their grand entrance down the stairwell. The night then went up a notch with entrée’s being served and the drinks flowing. The rest of the celebrations rolled on from there, through speeches, cake cutting and the first dance. Our night finished with some more couple shots outside with the massive brick wall & lights as a backdrop. I’m sure the party went on after that but it’s probably a good thing there is no photo evidence of the guests letting loose.
This wedding was totally worth the wait. Congrats lovers
