Poachers Pantry Wedding Photography

There are a number of reasons why I love photographing weddings at Poachers Pantry.  The beautiful surrounds, wide variety of places to shoot and the yummy food are just a couple.

Chloe and Peter had their wedding on a gorgeous day.  The low sun was streaming through the trees and provided an amazing back drop for all of our photographs (‘our’ being myself and my excellent assistant on the day, Michael Conlin).

Chloe and the ladies arrived in the pristine Packard supplied by Tim from A1 Classic Cars and the ceremony was held under the huge tree on the lawns of the homestead.

After the ceremony we roamed around the property taking advantage of the perfect lighting conditions and had lots of fun doing some crazy things.  It was all worth it in the end as we ended up with some fantastic photographs.

Canberra Yacht Club Wedding

Another beautiful day in Canberra helped make Melissa and Steven’s wedding absolutely perfect!

The ceremony was held at the Southern Cross Club Yacht Club on the foreshore of the lake.  The decorators did an amazing job in creating a beautiful setting for the wedding.  Jo Terlich (the celebrant) delivered a beautiful ceremony with lots of laughter and a few tears.

After the ceremony we headed off to Mount Stromlo for part of the wedding photography session and our crazy, fun loving bridal party ensured there was never a dull moment.  Then it was back into Canberra for a couple more locations where we had some fun with two pillows and tried to get LOVE flying through the air – we did it!!  Although I think some of bridal party took a bit of revenge on a few occasions and aimed at poor Melissa and Steven!

A great day, awesome photos and big thanks to Leonie Roberts for assisting.

Canberra Autumn wedding

Sally and Andrew couldn’t have chose a better day for their wedding.  It was perfect.  We had great weather and amazing colour in the trees.  Throw in a fun loving bridal party and you have a wedding photographers dream.

Prior to the wedding my assistant for the day (the lovely Katrina Burgers – who took some of these shots) and I had fun going up and down the crazy elevators at The Apartments in New Acton.  If you go in them – don’t look at the back of the lift as you will get motion sickness – ooohhhh!  We did some shots of the boys as they dressed little Jackson, and then it was back to the ladies for the pre wedding photography.

The ceremony was officiated by Roger Thomson in Nara Park where the low autumn sun and changing leaves created the perfect backdrop.

After the ceremony, we took some shots around Nara Park before heading off to some beautiful trees to make the most of the late afternoon sun.

The reception was held at The Boat House Restaurant, where there was some fun with who know the most about our couple.

Merran and Terry’s Amazing wedding

We had a perfect day for a wedding.  The wedding photography started with the guys getting ready and this is where me met the 4th member of the bridal party – The Dude.  A quiet type and a bit old fashioned in his style but fun to have around.  We then shot over to the ladies before all returning to have a ‘surprise first look’ back and Merran and Terry’s place.

Merran and Terry LOVE board games!  And I think they have the worlds biggest collection – I didn’t even know there were that many out there!  They had a quick game and all was going well until The Dude lost his cool because he was losing and had to be removed!

We visited the National Arboretum for some wedding photography opportunities and then it was over to the National Botanical Gardens for the wedding ceremony and some more photos before heading to Tuggeranong for the reception.

A very fun day with a great bridal party.
