Chris & Lauren’s wedding at Silkwood Winery last Friday was understated, intimate and absolutely beautiful – tying the knot in front of just 20 family members and friends. The couple were staying across the road from Silkwood at Kangaroo Creek Chalets, which is full of rustic charm and huge karri trees – very typical to this region, and also the perfect contrast to have with Silkwood’s beautiful deciduous trees.Not wanting to spend anytime away from their guests, we took the couple shots before the ceremony. And then a few shots through the trees at Silkwood en route to the wedding, Which… by the way were not to be missed. Such stunning colours at this time of year.
After the wedding, we did a fair few family photos. I have been thinking about these a lot recently, as I often knock their importance, not being the most creative of photos. They do however, stand the test of time and may be the ones around for many future generations to witness. In contrast to the old fashioned very formal ones, I prefer to make mine a little bit more modern and candid, if at all possible. I was happy with these.
Congratulations Lauren & Chris! Editing this wedding has been a joy! I hope you love the pics x
