Ashleigh + Marty | 3.3.18 | Yanchep Wedding
7hr 'Love' Collection
On a perfect Autumn day in March, Ashleigh & Marty's family & friends headed up to Yanchep National Park to see these lovebirds tie the knot. Such a wonderful day...the weather was perfect and the bridal party were fabulous. As the groom is in the Navy, the day ran to precision timing as you would expect! The day starting with getting ready photos in the Lakeside Motel Accomodation located on the grounds next to the Yanchep Inn. The girls were incredibly relaxed and so lovely to photograph. Meanwhile, my second shooter Julie captured some fun moments with the groom & his groomsmen & groomslady (Trini, you totally rocked that suit).
The ceremony took place lakeside under a beautiful lattice arbour (the clever groom constructed it himself and it was decorated by his mum, Lorraine Haynes from Everblooms) officiated by the lovely Kimberley McKerras of KM Celebrations. Ashleigh & Marty chose to have a completely unplugged ceremony which was wonderful, it was so refreshing to not see an iphone or ipad throughout the entire vows which also means their photos are not filled with people holding devices up and everyone was totally in the moment with the couple. After Ashleigh & Marty were pronounced husband & wife we found some lovely locations around the Inn and then some gorgeous light in the bushland near the caves for some bridal party photos. The newlyweds and their family & friends then partied the night away inside the incredible Cabaret Cave, such a unique venue for a reception complete with stalactites! I love that the bride & groom handcrafted alot of details themselves including the 'donut wall', table decorations, signs and even the lemon meringue pie and french vanilla bourbon candles!
Such a magical wedding - wishing Ashleigh & Marty every happiness for their future together. I hope the images make you smile for years to come.
Many thanks to my second shooter Julie van Oosten for all of her hard work on the day.
