Mornington Peninsula Wedding Photography at Karrawingi Park–by James Harvie Photography
Karrawingi Park for your Mornington Peninsula wedding Photos is one of those quaint rustic low key Peninsula Wedding venues with a real Australian feel.
The day began in the usual fashion at Matt the Grooms home. Matt was pretty relaxed and chilled. Now because Matt was a tradie by profession we decided to drop in some shots with his tools and his brother as best man. It was pretty funny actually as I found a good tool shed out the back. So we did some larrikin shots of the boys clowning around. The good thing is this can often break the ice and get the smiles flowing.
Moving onto Stephanie the brides home the tension and action was a little more fast passed. It’s always interesting observing the way people interact and if you keep an eye on things you can get those awkward but funny pics. For instance Dad having a shave or ironing a shirt. I tend to begin photographing the wedding finer details as these are the components which help bring the day together. If the client is doing an album the detail shots are important to tell that story. Stephanie was cool calm and collected and she really did look stunning. We even located an original old red phone box out in the garden. We used this for some fun shots which really added a point of difference.
The ceremony was located in the Gazebo just in front of the stunning Karrawingi small lake. It really does make for a stunning back drop. In usual fashion the bride was late. Stephanie arrived in a stretch Limo and was introduced to the ceremony by her father. Matt being quite reserved in nature was pretty low key but as soon as Stephanie arrived he just burst into one proud smile.
Wendy Withers did a wonderful job of making the ceremony fun and enjoyable. For the group shot we had a bit of an issue with the sun so I made sure to attempt to have guests in uniform light. The late sunlight can play into a photographers hands. I actually like the sunspots present in an image. I have a very wide angle lens which is perfect for capturing those guests shots.
Once all the group photos were finished we headed to one of my favourite Mornington Peninsula wedding Photography locations. And no I am not going to mention where it is on here for I have never come across another photographer. To find out the location you will just have to book your Mornington Peninsula wedding photography with me. But I will tell you this is it has magnificent trees which make you feel like your in a Scandinavian forest of sorts.
Back at Karrawingi for reception we made use of the gardens and the very cute old hut. Stephanie and Matt then had their reception out in the gardens. There was a mobile bar, fine music and divine food for all. It really was just a wonderful laid back reception. There were plenty of laughs as Matt removed the garter with a very seductive humerous dance. And the Bouquet throw was most amusing.
I felt really honoured and special to be a part of your day and wish you both Stephanie and Matt a long and happy married life together.
Special thanks must go to all the wonderful suppliers for without you all this day just wouldn’t have been so delightful.
