August 18, 2014 / Marianne & Kyle wedding | St Francis Berrima & Briars

Looking for a beautiful venue to get married? The Briars in Bowral is set on 15 acres of rural countryside and is a superb venue for a romantic country wedding. Set apart by tranquil gardens, rural surroundings and elegant atmosphere, this is the place where Marianne and Kyle celebrated their wedding reception.

You might have remembered a recent engagement session post of Marianne and Kyle at North Wollongong. Well today was their wedding day.

Here in the Southern Highlands, we were very lucky to experience one of the most gorgeous sunny and warm autumn day’s in a long time. The sun was out all day which was a pleasant delight.

Marianne and Kyle got ready at the Briars in Bowral among their dearest friends and parents. I love this venue for its beauty and versatility, so many beautiful back drops, a photographer’s dream.

Their ceremony was held at one of my favourite churches, St Francis Xavier Church in Berrima. I just love its history and the beautiful sandstone walls.

Their ceremony was unique and special to them, which involved Filipino traditions of the cord, veil and candle ceremony. Just beautiful and touching to see.

March 23, 2013 / Jolene & Adam| Married | St Francis Xavier Berrima & Sylvan Glen, Penrose

I think most photographers would agree that Sylvan Glen is their favourite venue to photograph in the Southern Highlands.

Jolene Albert and Adam told me they only needed to look at one venue because they fell in love straight away and I can see why! I love this venue. Sylvan Glen is set on 60 acres situated in Penrose in the Southern Highlands of NSW. It has a beautiful guesthouse with so much history, lovely gardens and a function centre equipped for all types of weddings.

The owners and staff of Sylvan Glen are just wonderful, always attentive… no wonder they are always fully booked! I look forward to photographing another gorgeous wedding at Sylvan Glen in the very near future.

Jolene is one amazing person. She has a beautiful effervescent gregarious personality and watching her throughout the day you can see she is loved by all. Adam, a charming respectable young man and who is totally in love with his gorgeous wife.

The whole day went perfectly. It was such a big day for all.

Kat Middleton of About Face Sydney (mobile professional make up artist) and Paula Hibbard (hairdresser) did an amazing job attending to a very large bridal party which also included 4 flower girls and one page boy.

Flowers were from Flowers by Van Til and the delicious wedding cake was by Delaney’s in Wollongong.

The weather was just glorious and sunny. Their wedding ceremony was held at St Francis Xavier church in Berrima.

I had so much fun capturing their special day and as you can see from the photographs everyone had a memorable time.

Thank you Jolene and Adam for trusting me to capture your day – it was such an honour.
